We were so fortunate to win the daily Disney Diamond Celebrations Sweepstakes today. What an AMAZING day... I texted the word of the day at 7:29am. Received a text at 11:15am.

So sad to see it go.  I know Disney is in this Frozen high and trying to continue to milk that movie for all it is worth, but this was a poor decision on their part.  I don't see Frozen having the longevity that Aladdin has because they've saturated everything with Frozen trying to force it into everything.  - TheFoxandtheHound  19.5 #7832 6:50PM

Such a memorable experience with characters. Donald truly made this interaction amazing. He rocked Bronson hippo and wiped away my tears after I told him about Bronson and how this would have been his first trip. Thank you all again for pitching in for my annual pass and helping me make memories like this. Bronson will never EVER be forgotten and it means so much to me. #BronsonsFirstTrip

I don't have the stickers, however i have been in a similar situation and im sending good vibes. It's so precious to see love and happiness in this photo. I wish the best for your family and who knows what the future holds for us all. - RobnHood  185.6 #2256 9:46PM

Thank you misschurro life creates obstacle's for all of us. Some are harder to cross than others.A life lost is a tragedy no matter how it happens. I believe things happen for a reason, sometimes they are more difficult to handle than you expect. I have found that if you push through and keep your head up good things will come to you. It's difficult at times but you have to look at the bright side. - RobnHood  185.6 #2256 2:40PM

I'm so sorry for your loss as well. I agree that life on earth is just full of trials and tribulations for a better life in heaven. Bronson got lucky and didn't have to live through hell on earth. He was special and got to earn his wings early. He never knew any negative only love. I'm a little envious lol. I can't wait to spend the rest of forever with him in heaven  - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1335.6 #143 9:48AM

This ride is nothing less than perfection! Although, I will admit I really miss Paul Frees' dialogue when you go through the cove that takes you from the past to the present. I miss it every time..."No fear have ye of evil curses says you, Ayyyyeee....   properly warned ye be says I...   who knows when that evil curse will strike the greedy beholders of this bewitched treasure!"(Old ghost's voice)   "Perhaps he knows too much...   he's seen the cur-sed treasure...   he knows where it be hiding? Now proceed at your own risk...  ye may not survive to pass this way again!"I swear, I hear it in my head every time we sail through that cove and I would love for it to return someday, even just temporarily!☺️ - Nala  383.0 #628 9:24AM
