January At The Walt Disney Family Museum

Walt Disney Family Museum logoIt’s a Disney family two-fer today, as the Walt Disney Family Museum has released its schedule for January. Coming off of the holiday-themed events of December, January finds the Museum delving into the deep with a number of events centered on the theme of undersea exploration.

This is an interesting and unexpected slate, but I have to say they’ve missed the chance to screen some aquatic True-Life Adventures! We also need some Harper Goff fanboys there to discuss the Nautilus, and Tony Baxter to do a presentation about Discovery Bay. And Kym Murphy talking about The Living Seas and Port Disney! And instead of doing it at the Museum, they need to come do it all at my house!

Oh well, if wishes were fishes. The schedule:
