The first Thursday of the YEAR means a Disney Factoid!!! It was actually the factoid on December 30th of 2015. I got my 2016 calendar ready at work and I cannot wait to see what kinds of facts I get! This is directly off my calendar page:
"Early on, someone suggested that Snow White's friend Dopey play the title character in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, but Walt Disney said no. He knew in his heart that this was a role Mickey Mouse was born to play."
I don't think I can imagine Dopey playing this role! But I can see why, since Mickey never speaks, but he was definitely the right choice!
