A Rare Look inside Disney’s Top Secret Animation Research Library #LittleMermaidEvent #spon

I was included on this tour as part of a media event promoting the re-release of The Little Mermaid.  My expenses on the trip were covered, but I was not otherwise compensated and my opinion remains my own.  When you think about what you treasure most in your home, it’s probably the people and the history you share…the old photos and letters and things that connect you to where you came from, right?
