    First, I hope this isn't breaking any guidelines. (I reviewed them and don't think I am).

    Second, I find it a sad commentary that I have to post this....

    Anyway I am looking for a lesbian couple celebrating their relationship in some Disney way or another who want to split the cost of buying two sets of Disney's wedding mugs. Disney apparently only intends these for straight couples: you can't buy a gay set, you can't buy a lesbian set, you can't buy the mugs separately to make your own gay or lesbian set.

    I can't post links because I am still a newbie on this forum but you can see these mugs on the disney store online -- or just google "wedding minnie and mickey mouse mugs".

    So, now I need to find a lesbian couple, split the cost for two sets and then pay for postage to mail the mugs again once I separate the Mickeys from the Minnies.

    My target date for having all this wrapped up is October 20 2013. (We are headed down in November to celebrate 25 years together and I want to surprise my husband).

    So let me know if you are interested and I hope we can make this happen.

    Hi
    If you haven't found anyone yet I'd be interested. I'm based in the UK if that makes any difference.

    Scott, congrats! I hope you are getting lots of requests to help. You should post on here if you have gotten your wedding mugs, I would like to know, and know how the surprise trip goes. Very cool!

    Scott, I will be at Disney in early November celebrating my marriage with my soon to be new wife. This would be an awesome thing to do for us so if you still need someone to split the mugs with, let me know!

    Apparently I don't have a high enough rating to send personal messages...

    So I am not sure what to do to contact folks...:sad:

    I think you only need 10 posts to PM so post a couple more times.

    OK!

    Here is the news!

    Five days ago I walked into the World of Disney Store at Downtown Disney. I went over to the wedding section of the store, picked up a set of mugs and walked over to the information kiosk.

    "I want a gay set and I don't think I should have to buy two straight sets then throw two of the mugs away in order to get a gay set."

    The employee got on the phone and called up the Manager.

    I asked him, "I certainly can't be the first person has asked for this."

    "You sure are," he replied.

    The Manager came down and I looked at him and said, "I want a gay set and I don't think I should have to buy two straight sets then throw two of the mugs away in order to get a gay set."

    "You are correct," he said. "Let me get another set and swap these out for you."

    And he did, re-wrapping them and everything.

    "Have a magical day," he said handing them to us.

    Is this cool or what?

    SO, gay couples and lesbian couples -- or those looking for a wedding gift for a gay couple or lesbian couple -- just go into the World of Disney and ask them to make you a gay or lesbian set!
