Welcome to my refuge :)

Disney has become a daily retreat for me. We may only spend 10 days there a year (more if I'm truly blessed), but I have found that making Mickey a part of my daily life makes me feel much better. So I'm running with it! Luckily I have a patient husband and a laptop computer that allows me to do endless searching and planning. This blog is developing out of that. You are welcome to come along for the ride and offer your advice. I don't claim to be an expert, just a lover of the experience!

Right now whenever a post says "Update" that means it is a 2011 trip update and if you click on the tab with that date on it you can read that update.

Mickey Mania!!!

Yes, I know- it's been a while since I've posted here. The site is under-construction and my house is being deconstructed during a major remodeling project so things are crazy here! Don't worry, It's still been me and Mickey every day.

There was the early March pin episode where after checking every email address Jim or I have, I finally called Disney and had a very nice CM tell me that no, I did not have a pin. I am holding out hope for a public code. Feel free to cross your fingers for me!

Then there was a simple trip to a local St Vincent de Paul. They had a 1/2 price sale. I found some great Disney fabric and a Halloween candy dish.

Last week my favorite Disney travel group and web group The Magic for Less Travel/ The Mouse for Less were having a celebration. They had several contests. There were photo contests, blog contests, scavenger hunt trivia, cruise contests, and more. I got the fabulous new that I was a winner of the blog contest and the trivia. I will post my Blog on my MFL blog page here. I am getting some amazing prizes that I'll show off when they arrive. Thanks everyone at MFL/MFLT!

Today was great too. I was able to trade enough old books on Amazon to pay for my Annual Pass. That's $475(about)! I was excited. I also got a great new Mickey notebook. I love my notebooks and this one is perfect.

Oh, I almost forgot. My camera is here too. We got a great deal on it and I LOVE it. Hopefully by the end of June I'll have it all figured out.

Hope that catches you up some. I'll try to be back soon.


  1. WooHoo!!! Congrats on the Win!!! Will love to view your prizes. Vacation for you is just around the corner!

  2. I think I need your address (of line) so that my kids can send you some of their extra pin traders.
