Celebrations Magazine #review

Celebrations Magazine

I've heard of this magazine for years - as a listener of Lou Mongello's WDW Radio podcast, I've heard him talk wiith Tim Foster and make mention of this magazine.  I've always thought - this would be a great Christmas present to gift for my close friend, Melissa.  Yet, somehow, I never found myself a copy.  Until now!

Celebrations magazine just released it's 35th issue.  The mission of the magazine is "discovering the magic of Walt Disney World."  Readers can explore the magic of the Disney theme parks and resorts, relive the classic films, and celebrate the secrets, stories,a nd history of the most magical place on Earth.  Reders can subscribe or buy back issues at
I was recently sent an issue from January/February 2013 to review and share with you - let me tell you, I love it.  I don't think I could have received a more perfect issue - the cover (and inside pictorial) is all about New Fantasyland, there is a guide on the World Showcase Adventures with Phineas and Ferb, and the Story Behind the Music of Main Street, U.S.A.

I really enjoyed reading the articles - there is one entitled "Suspended Animation: The Disney Strike of 1941" al about the Disney studio strike.  This magazine is filled with incredible photography that really does bring the magic home!  Between hidden mickeys (with a guest article from Steve Barrett himself), quizzes, crosswords, games, and more, these magazine can be enjoyed by the entire family!

I've loving Celebrations Magazine and I'm looking forward to more - and to buying them for gifts in the near future!  Have you read Celebrations Magazine?

I received a free copy of Celebrations Magazine for reviewing purposes, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
