Stoopid Buddy Stoodios—creative minds behind Robot Chicken TV Series—to visit The Walt Disney Family Museum in April!


The Walt Disney Family Museum always offers some amazing programs. I love it when they bring in non-Disney related groups to create programming and other events. Still, I wish they had an East Coast department for those of us that are much closer to Walt Disney World than Disneyland.
