Talking Disney dangled the visual weinee & Mickeystoontown gobbled it up! 8/26

Disney dangled the visual weinee and Mickeystoontown’s gang gobbled it up! Our two week adventure!

Howdy folks! Welcome to the latest Mickeystoontown Walt Disney World trip report! For all of my old Dis friends, it’s good to see ya again! For any new readers, it’s good to see you too!

You know, there’s only so much one can say when describing their family. I mean, seriously, unless there’s a major change from one trip report to the other, the intros are pretty much the same. So, I’m going to cheat a bit and copy part of the introductions that I made in my pre-trip report.

First, there's our son, Hunter, who has celebrated 15 of his 17 birthdays at Walt Disney World. (The other two were a near miss by just two and a half months.) Hunter turned 17 on the day that we left our hometown and headed to Walt Disney World. He's super talented and can play just about any instrument by ear and is first chair viola in the orchestra. Hunter is also a prankster and keeps us in stitches 24/7. If there were anybody who you'd think would be an actor and/or stand-up comedian, it's Hunter. He thinks fast on his feet and can come up with one-liners before you can blink an eye.

The man of the family is my husband, John. John and I own a cabinet shop which is operated right on our property but, several years ago, he went back to work full time for a commercial cabinet shop where he used to work. John is an outdoorsman and enjoys working in the yard and in the garden. Sweating like crazy and working until he is worn completely out is like therapy to him. John suffers from epilepsy and, unfortunately, it does effect our everyday life. But, it is what it is and the good Lord helps us through it so we deal. I mean, what else are we to do?

Then, there's me, Lisa, a/k/a Mickeystoontown. I work at a law office that specializes in domestic/family law. I'm a lover of all things Disney and am in constant Disney trip planning mode. Did anybody know that it's just 343 days until we are back in Disney? My hobbies include working in the garden, sewing both Disney and non-Disney themed backsacks and little girls' dresses (if any of you are interested, let me know ), camping and, basically, anything that includes the outdoors. I am definitely a tomboy but I like my sparkly jewelry. Oooooh shiny!


In the past, some of our annual Walt Disney World trips have included my 80 year old mother, our daughter, Lacey, and our son-in-law, Jesse. However, after last year’s trip, Mama decided that would be her last one with us. She said that she simply isn’t a Spring chicken anymore and didn’t think that she could withstand another long trip. Lacey and Jesse were booked to go with us but had to cancel their portion of the trip when real life snuck up on ‘em and they had to buy a new vehicle. As we told the semi-newlyweds at the time, “Sometimes being a grown up sucks!” and they agreed wholeheartedly.

Even though the kiddos won’t be traveling with us, I thought that I’d share our annual Christmas picture:


Because Mama wasn’t going and Lacey & Jesse had to cancel, the group was down to just the three of us, the three Amigos, the three Cabelleros, actually, we’re more like the three Stooges if I wanna be honest with you.

This was our 20th trip to Disney and it covers a span of fifteen days, fourteen of which were spent at Disney. If you have read my reports before, you know that we are a lively bunch and we like to have fun together. I’ve been told that my reports are entertaining, in part, because we hold nothing back and I write all about it. My reports are also lengthy...I’m talking they go on forever because, like I said, I write about everything and have pictures to prove it. If you are new to my reports, don’t say that I didn’t warn you.

This trip report may or may not include some “mistranslated” words which cause giggle fits, “wildlife” that makes an appearance where it’s not wanted and the utterance of “I wonder if people ever get caught doing this”.

Oh and I almost forgot to say something. I have made a lot of friends on the Disboards (some of which will make an appearance in this report) and love makin’ new ones. If you are a reader (new or old), please feel free to post. Don’t just sit out there in lurkdom. It’s not near as fun as chattin’!

Now, ya’ll go on and get a cup of coffee, or a coke or whatever tickles your fancy, because this is going to be one heckofa ride!

Take pictures of anything that looks weird!

Oooh oooh, that smell! Can you smell that smell? The smell that surrounds you!

Where are the magicians and musicians? Is that a naked man?

The bail money is in the safe and the key is in the drawer! Remember that!

That’s a mighty fine hat you got there Mister! Not as fine as my shirt!

Excuse me Sir! Miss! Would you mind moving your feet?

Monkey puzzles and peanut butter trees? Who ever heard of such?

Your mission should you choose to accept it! I screamed like a girl!


Stupid Judy! Stupid Big Bang Ding Dang! Stupid Epilepsy!

That man has a crutch in his crotch!

Get me to the church on time! Where's the bathroom?


This isn’t anything like we used to have at school? Prolly ‘cause we didn’t go to school in Norway.

Is that bird crap or a hidden Mickey? Look closely! I can't tell!

You big fat lipped hairy sucker you! Be still!

It’s simply too cute! What are you talking about? Dig in!

It’s Slinky! It’s Slinky! Everyone knows it’s a slinky!

Will Hannibal Lector make a surprise appearance again?

Why does he have that hang dog look all the time?

He’s whispering sweet nothings to you! I can’t hear a dang thang!

There’s a pig?!?! Where? Up there!

I love me a woman with cat eye glasses and a big ol' mole!

I'm here...back to catch up later, but wanted to get my save in here.

***As promised...I'm back. I loved your intros, as always. You described Hunter to a tee...and that was just after spending a little time with you all.
