Mickey Lamp from the GF

While we were staying at the GF I just fell in love with the Mickey Lamp they had on the desk.

Today my DH surprised me - he ordered it over the phone and had it shipped to his work and came home on his lunch time and set it all up in the bedroom so that when I came home and turned on the light - there was MICKEY! It looks just great.

Even though we are not going again until October - I felt a little bit of that Disney Magic (pixie dust) today!:D :D :D

For those of you who don't know what it looks like, the Mickey lamp is hidden somewhat by my son's birthday card, but you can catch a glimpse of it anyway here in my photo.

Suzywindy, my husband almost bought one for me, too. It is an adorable lamp. What a wonderful gift!

Having trouble getting your photo up. It comes up error. I would love to see that lamp.

I have heard LOTS about that lamp. It would be great if my husband did something like that to surprise me, but I would be just dreaming there.

You can see the Mickey lamp on my web site. Click the first link below, called "SeaSpray's family vacations" then scroll down a little to our May 2001 trip, and go to the Grand Floridian page, and you will see it in one of the pictures, behind my son!

It's an adorable lamp! Not sure of the price though!

The lamps are on the first floor in the gift shop called sand something - my husband thinks - sandbox. It is right next to the Grand Floridian Cafe. He called merchandising and asked them to contact the Grand Floridian and they then shipped it out. They said 6 weeks but it did not take that long and he said it was about $265 total with tax and all. It came in 2 big boxes and he had to put it together.

The gift shop is called Sandy Cove Gifts and Sundries. It is located right off the lobby, next to the Grand Floridian Cafe.
