Just one year ago, on April 7 2007, it was the very beginning of Disney and more, so this is the first Disney and more birthday. And today, thanks to all of you dear Disney and more readers, the site - i say "the site" because, although it is a blog structure, it's more and more looking like a web site - has reached the point of 200000 visitors ! What a great birthday present! Also, in one year, 500000 pages were read and 1300 readers gently took the time to answer to my poll, and that's very kind from you.
Each day, now, between 1600 and 2000 visitors are coming on Disney and more. Until today, the record was reached last sunday with 2320 visitors and 6486 pages read. But today was a new record for Disney and more with 3574 visitors and 7420 pages read on a single day.
Those of you who come each day on the site have probably already understood it, Disney and more is not only about Disney, it's also about ideal. I mean, a vision of an ideal web site where you can find not only beautiful pictures - old or new - but also great and rare artwork, all of them in high-resolution when available, and with no damned web site logo on it!
A web site where everybody can watch the best videos available on Disney attractions and "behind the scenes", or even watch great magic acts - who don't like really good magic, frankly? , find the latest infos on great Disney merchandise items, and news about the highly awaited movies like WALL-E or the next Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull.
Disney and more is also, and before everything, a huge tribute to Walt Disney Imagineering and to all the fantastic wizards of Glendale. May be everything began with a mouse, but without their genious, this unique experience that we can live only in Disney theme parks will not be part of our reality. May Disney Imagineers live forever!
I need to thank also all the blogs and web sites which kindly and regularly are doing links with my Disney and more articles, and a special thanks to Al Lutz from Miceage. Thanks to his link a new visitors record was broken today.
So, once again, and as would have said this dear old Sammy Davis Jr, i thank all of you "from the bottom of my heart"!
See you all tomorrow, for the awaited last part of the Disney MGM Studios articles series, it's a promise!
