This week, Mousetalgia welcomes author and historian Jeff Kurtti back to the show to discuss his new book "From All of Us to All of You: The Disney Christmas Card." We take a deep dive into the history of the various Christmas cards distributed by the Walt Disney Studios over the years and we look at some of the artists responsible for the beautiful mailings. Kurtti also gives us a look behind the scenes at the making of a Disney book. Then, out of the night, when the full moon is bright... it's Zorro! We share a brief history of Walt Disney's hit television show, including the discovery of Guy Williams who would become the looming, 6' 3" Zorro, and the creation of the serialized show that captivated audiences throughout the late 1950s. We also talk about the studio backlot, Zorro at Disneyland, and that amazing theme song. Also - new Sugarfina and Lego celebrate Mickey's 90th - and more.

It's a Mousetalgia Emporium this week! Topics for the week include alcohol in Disneyland, lights on floats and remembering a friend. First, Team Mousetalgia offers a listener a "Hand with the Land" with tips for solo touring at Walt Disney World. Then, we finally tackle the issue of alcohol coming to Disneyland, and debate the pros and cons. Does the Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Cantina warrant an authentic stiff drink? Perhaps our opinions will surprise you! Next, we speak with Ben Sherman, author of "Lights," about his time at Disneyland and his role in the creation of the Main Street Electrical Parade. Sherman shares some of the challenges and victories behind the scenes during the development of this groundbreaking nighttime spectacular.
