Well, we really had an interesting day yesterday. With a great big exclamation point! There was a merchandising event at DCA with John Lasseter and Chip Foose. We had planned to check it out, but didn't think we'd stay because we expected a long line. We went to the store hosting the event (Off the Page) and decided to go for it. Unlike similar events, they pre-sold the items and you came back later to get them signed. We bought a 300 limited edition Cars Land 'Lassetire' and 2 Chip Foose designed shirts, and were told to come back at 1pm to get in line. Well, almost 4 hours later we finally met them, got our items signed, and cast members took photos. They were both so gracious, warm, and friendly. Our hearts melted, an incredible moment for the two of us! We then decided to go to the Trattoria for a break. We thought we'd post the photo in both Lounges. When Nancy posted our photo in the DL Lounge, it took 15-20 minutes to post, so she didn't even try on the WDW side, will post later today, tho. I don't think the local cell towers can handle the Disney phone traffic. Literally everyone you see in the park has a phone in one hand. Nancy's battery went down 50% in a little over an hour trying to post some wait times and photos. While we were there, we met a really nice couple from Moreno Valley, Nancy took them both in under her wing and convinced them to become MouseWaiters. All in all a fabulous, memorable day. In other news… Hendizl (Henry), we will be posting a special RAK for you today, hope you see it and DM us your address. Henry has a big heart and wanted to do something special for a friend. There was a very cool RAK on the DL side this week and Nancy and I both entered for him. None of us won but Nancy had the same item and she's going to give it to him. In other developments… Nancy and I will be doing some holiday RAKs. We encourage everyone to enter and have fun with it. There will be rules so please may attention and mind your manners (pretend you're at the 50s Prime Time Diner, and if you are into the Amazing Race or Survivor, know this - there may be twists and turns and unexpected events). Please enter for yourself only. We encourage you to enter every RAK. We have been collecting items all year for this! We truly appreciate all the RAKs and kindnesses everyone has shared this past year, now we'd like to share.

Thank u for sharing your special moments with us!! You both are so incredibly sweet (so are u henry...great MW'er as well!) Thank you guys for spreading such warm and happy feelings here and kindness. It spreads to each one of us and is genuinely felt and appreciated:-) i'm not on here as much as i would like to be (life gets in the way! Lol) but whenever i get a chance to log on here,there is nothing but kindness and you both are a huge part of that. I also don't usually participate in RAK's because i simply can't afford to gather more stuff i collect,merchandise,etc..lol...i would rather enter someone else and spread the love:-) So i look forward to your RAK's and many more future stories and adventures from you two. You both are truly wonderful people - mickeynme  177.5 #52 3:36PM
