The Wonderful World of Disney
While I’m not as obsessed as some other bloggers out there (no offense), I do plan to write about various topics ranging from park history to my own personal stories. At some point, I need to go back into all the old photos and videos my parents have and start posting some of those things here.
The Parks – There are six Disney Resorts around the world and my goal is to visit them all one day.
Disneyland – The one and only original park conceived and built by Walt Disney himself.
Walt Disney World – The last major project Walt was working on before his death in 1966. He would never get to see it open.
Tokyo Disney – Located in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan, Tokyo Disney opened in 1983 and is the only Disney resort not owned by the Walt Disney Company.
Disneyland Paris – Originally opened in 1992 as the Euro Disney Resort, this 4,940 acre spot of land contains theme parks, hotels, shopping centers and a Disney-themed golf course.
Hong Kong Disneyland – Disney’s second resort located in Asia opened in 2005.
Shanghai Disney – The newest Disney resort is scheduled to open in 2016.
I’ve found some cool Disney-related downloads you may be interested in.
- Kingdom Font – This is the closest you’re going to get to the current Disneyland logo font. It’s not a free font, but it’s flawless in design. The font comes in solid and outline. You can buy it for $30 in PostScript or TrueType for Mac or Windows formats.
- StartedByAMouse – This is the free version of the one above and is the second closet you’ll get to the current logo. Two problems with this font are the very jagged edges and the inconsistencies throughout certain letters. If you plan on using the font, keep it small! Works on Mac and Windows.
- WaltOGraph – If you’re looking for Walt Disney’s signature font, look no further! Works on Mac and Windows.
- JSL Ancient – This is a similar font to the one used for some of the Pirates of the Caribbean logos. Available for Mac and Windows.
- Caribbean Regular – This is the one used on most of the logos for the movies. Works on Mac and Windows.
There are many more fonts related to the theme parks and movies. Check them out at Disneyexperience.com!
