Server Crash Due to Polish Invasion

I quasi-apologize for those who had trouble accessing the site for much of Saturday morning. The photo that shall not be named had been picked up by a popular Polish site called Kotek who uniquely opted to simply post the link rather than show the image as well. This immediately caused tremendous site overload (so much so that the account was even temporarily suspended). With my great host’s support, some changes were made to increase performance and to mitigate the service disruption from our visitors from Poland (who will still be able to see what they came for).

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens as Philip and Aurora in Sleeping Beauty by Annie Leibovitz – Photo!

* SPOILER ALERT *

Since it’s only a matter of time that teen celebrity gossip site Just Jared Jr releases the photo as they claim in this article, I’ve decided to empathize with the masses and offer a better version of the photo that will appear in Disney twenty three magazine. I’d like to thank everyone for their support, especially the dozens of ‘Zanessa’ fans who have caused StitchKingdom to have the best day ever in terms of traffic by a huge margin. And for the record, kids, I’m not a girl. To see the photo, you must click the Show button below. You can click the photo again to enlarge it and the cross-hairs in the lower left hand corner to see the full sized version. Enjoy.
