HobNobbing with Nobby (A Gnome's 1st Trip to the World) FINAL Upt: 9/23 (P.48)

We’re back, We’re back (said in the voice of the bride as you exit the Haunted Mansion, you all know exactly what I’m talking about). Well, we have returned from my 7 day/ 6 night adventures at Disney World!! Nobby and I had the best time ever, he’s just the cutest little thing. Oh, wait I might actually have some new readers who are joining us on our little look back at this trip, so I guess it would be quite rude of me to not start by introducing myself and my cast of characters.

Hi!! I’m Jen and I’m a bit of Disney crazy all wrapped into a body of 26 year old science teacher. I’m a nerd and if my introduction didn’t already establish that fact, well keep reading by the end of this trip report you might think I’m the nerdiest person you ever met. Of course, I’ll take that as a compliment. (By the way please ignore my grammar mistakes throughout this, I’m a science teacher and I don’t even know how to begin to diagram a sentence, so bear with me.) My favorite thing about Disney, EVERYTHING!! LOL, actually I’m in love with Goofy and I enjoy me some Haunted Mansion, I could live in that place (oh boy I’m digressing into my PTR…which you can find here: MY PTR ).

This is Prince Phillip (not to be confused with Aurora’s Prince Phillip), my Prince Phillip would not be caught dead at the castle (or so HE says, we’ll see about that). My Prince Phillip is also a teacher and is an avid hunter and fisherman and it’s because of these two passions of his I was going on this trip (we’ll get back to that later). Now Prince Phillip surely did not join me on this trip, he let me go alone, well or so he thought, however he’ll show up often in this trip report so it would be remiss of me to not mention him and show his cute picture off to all of you. (Oh, Paula I can’t find his gnome picture ACK!!)

Speaking of gnomes, this very handsome gentleman did accompany me on this dream trip! Ladies and Gentlemen allow me to introduce you to Nobwick!

Yes, Nobwick (or Nobby as he prefers to be called) is a gnome and this was his very first trip to Disney and he was just as excited about this trip as I was. Nobby is the mascot of a very fine group of ladies, called the Marcettes (you’ll also be hearing a lot more about these ladies too, we all DIS, you probably know a few of them LOL). Nobby will be helping me share our adventures with you, because many of the memories we have belong to him and it would only be fair if I shared them with you. However I will tell you that Nobby was quite a hit and I am sure there will be many people who will remember Nobby the next time they see him at Disney.

Well there you have it, our cast of characters for this trip…along the way there will be special extras who joined in on the magic and I will introduce them in time when they appear. Now shall I begin our little tale…well in that case as all good stories start…Once upon a time…
