Does anyone have anything Disney at work?

Well I cheat. I work at home so I have Disney everywhere---kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and toy room. I run a day care and I have 5 grandchildren so I have taken it upon myself to turn all children into Disney lovers. I even wear Disney and and Disney in my purse. It goes everywhere with me. My children are all grown and have their own families and they think i am crazy. HA!

Each year we go to WDW we get a picture taken in front of the castle. Then I place the picture in the castle frame. I have three of those, plus my Mickey business card holder. Oh yes, I do have DIS radio on too!
Stacy's a freak

I always have a picture of WDW on my background. The pictures change often, and I usually get the pictures from right here on the DIS.
I also listen to WDW music at work. I like to think of it as my little escape from the hectic pace of work :)

I have a couple of things. I have a small Mickey statue from MGM that says "Best Mom" that my DS's gave me last year for taking them to WDW. I have a picture of my two DS's in BTM, a picture taken of the Philharmagic sign with the castle in the background and finally a very small snow globe from my DCL trip. Trying to think of what I can pick up this time 'round!!!

I have a Beauty & the Beast desk set (business card holder, pen cup, stapler, paperclip holder, and tape dispensor). I want one of the new Mickey cork board pin holders, too, so I can display some of my favorite pins. I also have lots of pictures from our last trip...it's sort of the running joke in my office how much I love Disney...my supervisor even introducted me to new staff at training a few weeks ago as "the one who loves Disney." :blush:

I have a Mickey/Minnie Business Card holder. My keyring is from DVC as is my water bottle that my fellow employee gave me as a gift from her first trip on her DVC membership.

I have an Alice in Wonderland paper clip holder, a Dumbo stapler and an original character desk clock. I have pictures of my grandsons taken in front of Cinderella's Castle and a picture of my two children taken on the Disney Magic cruise. :goodvibes All of these keep my memories alive until our next trip!

I have a picture on my desk in a Mickey frame. It's subtle though, since it's wood, but has small Mickey's icons at each of the 4 corners. ::MickeyMo
When it gets colder, I bring my Wilderness Lodge mug to work to drink my hot chocolate. :coffee:
Now home is another story! Lot's of WDW reminders all over my bedroom & computer room!!

I have a pic of the kids with Mickey Mouse. That is about all I have room for. I work in a small, small cube. :rotfl:

I have a "Rock Star" badge from RnR with all my music posters, and a "Jedi Knight" badge from Star Tours with all of my Ewan McGregor pics.
Funny story about the Jedi badge...one day all of these kids (about 6 or 7 years old) were going on a tour of our company (we do a lot of volunteer work with schools). The tour stopped at my desk. The kids started clustering around to see my pictures and one of them noticed all the photos of Obi-Wan Kenobi and my Jedi badge. He piped up..."Are you really a Jedi?" I played along..."Yep." Kids all stood there, mouths gaping. Another one challenged me..."Where's your lightsaber?" Thinking fast, I said, "Oh, I broke it while sparring with Obi-Wan...Master Yoda is fixing it." That was it for those kids! They really believed I was a Jedi!

Since I'm one of the Directors with my company I have a pretty good size office.
So looking around quickly I see:
on my desk - MM rolidex, MM stapler, MM large pencilpen holder, MM paper clips, a statue of steamboat MM, various WDW magnets on metal file holder.
On top of several file cabinets - large red old fashion MM clock (the kind with the big ringers on top), 1 large framed picture of "THE GANG", several small MM pictures including one of MM shaking hand of fireman in yellow suit (popular after 9/11),
varioius magnets and magnetic WDW signs, one shelf of pictures of my DH and myself in different MM & WDW frames.
On the walls - 2 large framed pictures of WDW (all the parks)
On the conference table across the room a large MM upright phone (and I have it tied into our phone system so it works, and drives people nuts).
Also have a 7 ft. artificial ficus tree in front of my desk that has all the various characters hanging from it with white twinkle lights on tree also.
For every holiday my office is decorated for that season with all WDW deco.
Everyone refers to me as the resident WDW "nut".
In addition to Disney paraphernalia also have pictures of my kids(6 & 4 DDIL & 1DSIL) and my grandkids (13).

I have pics from our trips, a statue of Mickey that says "I Love You" on it the DBF gave me for V-day, and a little Simba toy from a Happy Meal last year....oh and a light up pen with Simba on it....and a pack of Tinkerbell pens I got from the world in May...

Where to start.... Clustered around my computer monitor are about 40 tiny collectible figurines. We pick up a couple of new packs every time we hit Downtown Disney.
Mickey guards my rolodex, and also sits perched atop the antenna of my phone. I, too, have a red Mickey alarm clock on my desk.
A cat statue and a blue & gold from the Morocco pavilion are on my desk, as well as a mug full of the light-up Disney pens. The mug has silhouettes of Disney characters around it, and it sits on a holder that is designed as Cinderella's Castle.
On top of the filing cabinets is a Micky & Minnie wedding plate (a recent wedding gift from my boss) and a golden Mickey statuette from Disney-MGM Studios. My two drinking mugs have Mickey silhouettes on them. My desk drawers are FULL of info on WDW, as I am the resident DQ (Disney Queen) and love helping coworkers plan their trips. :love:
Under my desk are two boxes full of park brochures, maps, used PassPorter guidebooks that I loan out, videotapes and CDs, a complete Disney travel center. :teeth:
I'm retiring in January - where am I going to put all this stuff in my house? :confused3
08-16-2006, 09:45 AM
Oops - I meant to say a blue and gold Moroccan tea glass in my previous post. Hope I spelled that right.
08-16-2006, 12:49 PM
I have several pictures of my son on CASTAWAY CAY!! Love it. Everyday, especially int he dead of winter, it is nice to think back.

Right next to my computer are my Haunted Mansion Mickey and Minnie Beanies. On the next shelf up is my ToT Bellhop Goofy Beanie. On the shelf above that is the Hummel figurine of Eeyore glowering under an umbrella the family got me for my birthday (and are still paying off! :bitelip: ). On the same shelf is my Rafiki wisdom beanie.
Over on the bookshelves are my collection of Heffalumps beanies, and my Figment plush. And the Viking Pluto and the Sombrero Donald.
On the other bookshelf are the Pirates Pooh and Eeyore Beanie.
My Ursula beanie lurks where I can invoke her when I'm in a bad mood, and the Fantasmic dragon beanie hangs out with Ursula. (All of those are on the shelf with the church growth stuff which doesn't work in Western PA.)
My other bookshelf goes off park and has my Seuss beanie collection: things 1 and 2, and Red Fish, Blue Fish, Old Fish, New Fish, and the Horton beanies. I'm known to our office cleaner as the "one with all the clutter" and to the presbytery as "the person who still collects those stupid toys."
