I am so looking forward to the train. I even contacted Disney to make sure that I would be able to get on the train with my wheelchair. I will report as soon as the train arrives in October.

I also wanted to tell you that Masterpiece ( has Little Dorrit in its entirety on its website to celebrate all the Emmy wins.

A very happy birthday to you!

We've had Mickey's Christmas Carol on DVD for a couple of years now. It's on a "Walt Disney Classic Cartoons" disc ... this one is called Classic Holiday Stories.

Mickey's Christmas Carol has been released to DVD at least twice before.

A 1.66:1 widescreen version was included in the two-disc set Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Living Color Volume 2, along with a vintage featurette on the making of Mickey's Christmas Carol, in 2004.

And a 1.33:1 "fullscreen" version was included on the one-disc set Classic Cartoon Favorites: Volume 9: Classic Holiday Stories, along with The Small One and Pluto's Christmas Tree, in 2005.

I don't have the second version, but reportedly, it actually includes more visual information at the top and bottom of the screen than the widescreen version does, albeit at a lower resolution. So while the widescreen version is probably preferable, at least the "fullscreen" version doesn't crop out any of the picture.

I have very fond memories of watching Mickey's Christmas Carol when I was a kid -- and now that I have kids of my own, I have begun to watch it on DVD with them, too. It's a fun holiday ritual.

I am definitely going to be getting Mickey's Christmas Carol!

Oh, happy birthday Gina! This is certainly a nice surprise for your birthday! :)
