I still have it.
I am planning to take it with me this time too because the flight wasn't long enough to finish it and I really don't care what my current boyfriend thinks!

LOL...Surprisingly I know someone who rather take a character picture with Minnie than Mickey! I mean how can you leave Disney without at least one picture with the mouse?! He is a flirt by the way lol...Well with the woman he took pictures a few tables before us! It was a great thing to see how Mickey interacted.

Pooh gave me the biggest bear hug & I just melted. And he passed by again to rub my shoulder as if he knew I had been going through something. In that moment I was a kid again & the characters became real if only for an instant

(if only that was a slap instead of a wave)... Instead, grumpy makes dopey want to come out and play. BWAHAHAHAH!
Ironically I brought a Grumpy hoodie on the trip only to realize I was more Happy with a couple of grumps. I could have used yoj as a buffer to dissipate the negative energy especially during waiting in line.

Don't know how ashamed I am of it, but my DW and I just bought a house and one of the selling points was it had a a hidden Mickey. Some one spilled paint in the basement and it is a perfect little hidden Mickey. When we saw that, we looked at each other and decided to put an offer in that day.

I've never had a Dole Whip, turkey leg, or choc. chip cookie ice cream sandwich...YET!

I look at my vacation pictures probably more than anyone should.

I'm not a fan of Fantasmic or Illuminations.

The Butterfinger cupcake was just okay for me.

I cry when I see rope drop at MK

I sing Zip a Dee Doo Da, down Main Street, USA subconsciously.

I ate a whole plate of Le Cellier's poutine fries by myself, DF says he helped, but he knows the truth and tries to make me feel better about it! And really, who can't do this, they're so good?!

I literally cannot go through a day without thinking or talking about Disney at least twice, ok...twenty times- I still might be underestimating that number!

Get Minnie in private and she's a totally different Mouse, ifyouknowwhatImean, wink wink.

Seriously, OK Disney shameful secrets:

1) I can't go into a park without wearing my retro-Mickey T-shirt. On one trip I forgot it at home and we were halfway to the interstate when I realized and I turned the car around and took us all back to the house so we could get it. I'm not ashamed about that because it was a perfectly reasonable thing to do. I'm ashamed that my family would not understand that so I made an excuse about forgetting the tickets....

2) Although I love the Mouse and almost all things Disney, I don't "get" Animal Kingdom. No offense to AK lovers but to me it's a poorly designed, claustrophobic miscalculation - mediocre as both a zoo and theme park.

3) Although Minnie is my number 1 (as long as Mickey is out of sight), I also have the hots for Little Leota (the pretty ghost that bids goodbye at the end of the Haunted Mansion ride), Cinderella (I typically prefer brunettes but there's something about that choker) and especially Maleficent.

4) I have always been bitter about the closing of Mr. Toads Wild Ride in 1998, although I take some small solace that in tribute there is a statue of Toad in the pet cemetery outside the Haunted Mansion.

5) When my oldest daughter was 2 we were standing in line so she could meet Mickey when she wanted to ignore the line and headed straight past the ropes to hug him - when we stopped her she ran outside and decided to throw her one and only true temper tantrum right there in the middle of the main thru-way. She was on her tummy, pounding her little hands and feet into the pavement screaming like a demon-spawn. We were mortified, and sat on the curb several yards away. People walked by and saw our little girl all by herself and looked around for the parents. We sat there acting anonymous until finally someone began looking for a CM, when we fessed up. LOL. Happy ending to this - she calmed down, we dried her tears, and we got calmly back in line and she did get her audience.

6) I guess I'm not a parade kind of guy. I find them rather monotonous, and intolerably so on a hot day. And if I try to ignore them it always seems the parade route is blocking the way I want to go. That's poor planning on my fault, but still....

... and finally....

7) At Grad Night in 1980 I toured the Magic Kingdom completely schnockered on vodka-soaked watermelon we ate on the school bus trip up to Orlando - I got it past the chaperone search by injecting the booze into the melon with a syringe. It's amazing how resourceful a snotnosed high-school kid can be when it's about breaking rules...
