#Tip: I've seen several posts about starting a pressed penny collection, and I thought I would offer a little friendly advice since I have some photo examples. First, choose only pre-1982 pennies. These are made of copper and when pressed, will not have other "silver" metals show through. The examples below are my own. The ones on the left were gathered at WDW last week, made from "good" penn  More...

Thanks! Great tip! I love them shiny...but the wreck it Ralph is kinda purdy too (just not with the shiny guys!) - TinkerSchelle  1801.7 #86 3:37PM

Great info thanks for posting! - Admin 5:09PM
Sorry, had to bump, but I wanted to add my two cents (hehe). I used all of your tips and they worked really well cleaning the pennies, but there was still some black gunk stuck on some of them so I went searching for another solution to get off the remaining gunk. And I discovered... an eraser!! Worked wonders. All you have to do is rub it over the dirty parts and it comes right off and leaves penny just like new. Hope this helps someone. Thanks for all the tips! Very excited to use my new shiny pennies on our next trip :D - lohofosho  785.0 #225 1:17PM

Ended! ✨✨RAK!✨✨ To enter this RAK you must answer a question. The question is, if you could bring back a ride or "save" a ride so it wasn't removed or changed, what ride would you pick and why? I would bring back the People Mover because I think it would have been one of my favorite places to relax. ✨✨ RAK ends 2/25/13 at 8pm Pacific time. ✨✨ Good luck! ✨✨

Add me for SueBayou, please. I'd bring back Adventure Thru Inner Space or America Sings. I remember being a kid and clapping to Yankee Doodle Dandy, and my dad telling me that you really shrunk in that "shrinking machine". Great memories. - Alicewhoareyou  2221.7 #64 7:42PM

Kennel is stil open and located behind the stroller rental. I have had only good experiences with my two dogs at disneyland, I feel safe knowing they are close by and can visit them all day long.

After chip and dale were created they were so comical and pairing them up on many shorts with Donald was the best choice with Pluto second. Mickey appereared on one with Pluto on a christmas tree episode. There are many shorts (funny) with chip and dale and donald in the outdoors another was Donald as a tree trimmer,as a road paver,and a park ranger planting acorn.All with these chipmunks and lots of funny haha.

One of the most frequent FAQ is what is a RAK. Well, I'll tell you who brought the Random Act of Kindness to MouseWait. Janine. It brought her joy to bring a little happiness to others. It's just the kind of person that she was. God bless her, and God bless her family. ❤

🌺🌺🌺🌺 And thats why it will stay a RAK. We'll always honor her and her generosity and loving heart. Nicely said Tom. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 8:34PM

I remember when I first joined, reading the FAQs and seeing a RAK on there. I saw that Dahulagirl had started it and I thought it was the neatest thing! I had never heard of it before. I remember the first RAK I won was from Jackie211 entering for me. I didn't even know her!!! I won a Pooh piggy bank from Gia, whom I didn't know either. Gia drove all the way from San Diego to give me my RAK and she was sick!! I remember thinking how wonderful she was, doing this for a complete stranger. I think this is what Dahulagirl meant for a RAK to be :) Im sure we all have stories of how special giving or getting a RAK was! - caramiapoohAKAface  3910.6 #34 9:52PM
