D23's Kristin Rodack joins Mousetalgia this week to discuss D23's events and features for 2015, many of which were just announced in the past week. From studio events and chances to meet Disney Legends to gatherings spread across the country, 2015 looks to be the best yet for D23 members. We discuss the recently announced features in detail, which include a radical new approach to the Fanniversary events, an incredible new gift for Gold Membership in 2015, and of course, the upcoming D23 Expo. Then, visit the Mousetalgia Emporium. This week's topics include a celebration of Presidents' weekend by discussing Mr. Lincoln's debut in the 1964 New York World's Fair, and Walt's original plans for bringing Lincoln into a "One Nation Under God" attraction at Disneyland; Disney's Mickey Mouse season 1 on DVD, for which Kristen offers a review; and a listener's six questions about visiting Disneyland as the 60th anniversary nears and planning a trip with the extended family. Plus, our predictions for the next Disney animated feature to go live action - Gary Busey as Mr. Toad?
