@Ariel42 other than eBay it looks difficult to get this dress in the near future. We'll all keep looking tho. This article in San Diego UT / Bloomberg News this am. Sorry. Is there a Plan B option?
Good morning. Nancy and I want to thank Angelito / Otilegna for sending us some surprise gifts from New York City. He sent two vinyls from the Disney store in NY, a Where magazine from Washington DC and a really thoughful letter. We're so glad to hear from you and that the weather is improving there. Southern California really misses you, hope you can get back soon. Thanks again Mr. A, you're the best!
@Angelito. Hope you saw Frozen this past weekend cuz Olaf melted during the 10K!
Happy Birthday Melissa / cooldisgrl_CM! Hope your day is magical and you have a fun trip to Disneyland. Be sure to visit Olaf!
Happy Birthday Tracy! Wishing you a magical day!
Hi Doreen! Just wanted to let you know I received your awesome RAK last night! Thank you so much for the great pin and the special pixie dust. The Disney Dollar is one of my favorites and now I won't feel so bad when Nancy takes my pin away. So glad I won this RAK, THANKS!!
Hi Maggie / Mrs.I. Just want to let you know your popcorn bucket is on the way. It was suppose to be delivered last Saturday (3 day priority). Seems to be stuck in Little Rock. The tracking number is shown in the pic, hope you get it soon. Arrrrrrrgh! Olaf needs a warm hug!
Live! Merry Christmas! ūüéÖ Again!
Live! Beautiful day. Just had lunch and ready to rumble! That mountain looks doable, not!
@disneycm Here is what a CA snowblower looks like. Vacuums plastic snowflakes to perfection! Not making light of your situation but wondering is this a typical winter snowfall? Are you snowed in or do snowplows clear the streets daily? Stay warm and safe.
Good morning! I read this item in a business blog. ‚ÄúIt costs ten times to acquire a new customer than it takes to upsell a current one.‚ÄĚ Walt Disney believed in this principle. He was adamant about giving extras to retain his current customers. He called it plussing. Here is a summary of the concept by John Torre: Normally, the word ‚Äúplus‚ÄĚ is a conjunction, but not in Walt‚Äôs vocabulary. To Walt, ‚Äúplus‚ÄĚ was a verb - an action word - signifying the delivery of more than what his customers paid for or expected to receive ‚Ä¶ Because for Walt, nothing less than the best was acceptable when it bore his name and reputation, and he did whatever it took to give his guests more value than they expected to receive for their dollar. Perhaps one of the best examples of Walt‚Äôs obsession for ‚Äúplussing‚ÄĚ comes from Disney historian Les Perkins‚Äô account of an incident that took place at Disneyland during the early years of the park. Walt had decided to hold a Christmas parade at the new park at a cost of $350,000. Walt‚Äôs accountants approached him and besieged him to not spend money on an extravagant Christmas parade because the people would already be there. Nobody would complain, they reasoned, if they dispensed with the parade because nobody would be expecting it. Walt‚Äôs reply to his accountants is classic: ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs just the point,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄĚWe should do the parade precisely because no one‚Äôs expecting it. Our goal at Disneyland is to always give the people more than they expect. As long as we keep surprising them, they‚Äôll keep coming back. But if they ever stop coming, it‚Äôll cost us ten times that much to get them to come back.‚ÄĚ Have a great weekend everyone!
Speaking of white walls, got a flat at DL in Oct. Had to run over to Luigi's for a new set. ūüĎüūüĎü
So, I'm watching TV and for some reason or another glance over at our coffee table. Sitting there was our latest issue of D23 magazine. On the cover was the artwork for the movie Saving Mr. Banks. That made me think of azcupcake because Nancy and I picked up the Saving Mr. Banks movie poster to give to Lisa when we met again. A little surprise you might say. Then I had a DOH moment. I completely forgot to add Lisa and her awesome family to our wonderful meetup post I did the other day. The mind is a terrible thing to waste. I am so sorry. Our meetup was all too brief but really fun because we felt we really got to sit and talk and get to know you. Hope to see you guys in February. Will give you the movie poster then! It's a great movie poster, it has Saving Mr. Banks on one side and Mary Poppins on the other.
And our wonderful meetup with Tracy, Jay, Tiffany, Jennifer, Henry and families! Happy New Year!
What a year for meet ups we had! We're blessed to have so many friends from MouseWait, many we've met and many we're looking forward to meeting. We started the year in January with a long anticipated meet up with Hugo and Paula. Hugo has been an amazing friend these past 2 years, looking forward to our next meetup. We also met with mzdisnee and family and timonT at the same time. Great fun to meet so many wonderful people at once. In April we were honored to meet CDKG and mom (Dar), mzdisnee and family, and Henry! It was such a special time for us, so many wonderful MouseWaiters came together to give Nancy and I such a memorable tour of Walk in Walt's Footsteps. For this we thank Tiffany, Susan, Christine, Joanne, Tracy, and Maggie. In September we had a great meet up with Andrea84 and Michael. Think that is the most rides I've gone on in a single day since I was a kid. Really a fun time. In the summertime and in November we met up with Angelito and had two great visits. We were fortunate to share Thanksgiving dinner with Otilegna and his sister. And in December we were able to meet Tracy and Jay, Tiffany, Jennifer, and Henry. It was such a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season getting to meet so many good friends. We're really looking forward to 2014 to more fun and shenanigans! Till next year, Salud, and Happy New Year!

'Twas the night before Christmas, and of all in our clan not a creature was stirring 'cept jac, jacdanfan. - He went to his office looked in his backpack and low and behold found items to RAK. - Now Christmas is one day, just one day that's clear but we must keep it well every day of the year. - So in the spirit of Christmas and the help of his elf we want to share gifts so please enter yourself. - In keeping Christmas well we hope we did right, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
