To all who come to this happy place... Welcome!

Welcome to Earning My Ears.

I guess an introduction is in order... My name is Craig, and for as long as I can remember the worlds of Disney have been a big part of my life. My first trip to Walt Disney World was in the summer of 1982 -- I was a year and a half old. While I don't have memories of this trip, it is a reminder of how I was introduced to Disney. Disney has been part and parcel of my life since the beginning, handed down to me by my parents.

My earliest Disney memories are our yearly family vacations to Disney World in the mid- to late-1980s, and my first Disney VHS tape -- Lady and the Tramp. As these seeds were planted early, the parks and animation have long been favorites of mine. But, my passion for what the Disney name has stood for and what it has produced since the 1920s has only grown stronger as the years have gone by.

In the past few years I have striven to learn as much as I could about Disney. It has been a journey in "earning my ears" that I continue to this day. This site is a manifestation of my search for knowledge. I want to share with you everything that I am learning in hopes that you can earn your ears along with me.

This site is dedicated to exploring all things Disney. Here we will look into the history, present state, and future of the theme parks, studios, corporation, collectibles, and anything else we can find.

You can expect regular features. Plus I may throw in quick updates from time to time, such as links to other websites or articles of significance.

So please join me as we earn our ears together.
