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.

People in Neenah Need More Mickey Stuff

Today as I rummage-saled, I was a true treasure hunter. Searching almost 30 garages Disney was hard to come by unless I wanted baby clothes and I was not that desperate (OK, I looked for a minute!)

Mine is not in this good of condition but they are from 2003.
When I did find something I took it. Rarely did I leave it behind. I found 2 large stuffed Mickeys to add to my growing collection. Jim said one looked like our cat Amante had already slept on it but it will clean up fine. I got a couple of goofy Goofy items (could have gotten more but those were over-priced). Found an old Mickey calculator that still works, an older Mickey bank and 2 girls tops that I can re-purpose.

I think that's it. Bought a lot of other non-Disney stuff but that's not as exciting for this blog.

Monday I will book our last tour. Plus a special surprise I can't mention because Jim reads this. It will kill me to stay quiet until it happens. I stink at surprises. Never pull them of so this will be a first.


  1. that's a cute calculator. considering it's meant for kids its a wonder it is in such mint condition and still works!

  2. This is a stock photo so mine isn't quite so mint (it was late and I was lazy!) But mine has character :)
