I’ll never NOT reblog this since you can barely see Ms. Huston’s glorious dress in the final cut of Captain EO.

Horizons was my knee-jerk response. But the best answer, I think, is Journey Into Imagination. You see, as great as Horizons was, it consisted of only one experience: the ride-thru attraction. Imagination gave us a ride, a 3D movie, and the upstairs Imageworks. You could stay there for hours.
Apologies for a rare non-Epcot post but it is a PSA about a good cause: bringing Disney Princesses to sick children in Pittsburgh as part of their make-a-wish when they are too sick to travel to Disney.
Erika previously brought princesses to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Above she notes:
“One of my favorite visits was when a little girl used her three wishes to have, “Tinkerbell’s wings, Ariel’s fins, and Rapunzel’s hair. Because then I could go anywhere."
She’s raised $7,030 of her $8,000 goal. If she gets more, she’d love to add in some superheros to the program. Any help to spread the word about her goal is appreciated!
