What An Amazing Find We Made

Recently we started cleaning out some things from many years ago that I had found.  In these items I found a old Mickey Mouse Christmas Ladder.  This ladder goes next to the Christmas Tree, and has lights, and moving parts.  I realized when we found it that it would take some serious amount of work to make this item work correctly.  I was going to throw it away, but my wife decided that the two of us should take a little time and try to make the necessary repairs.  After a few days we completed the repairs that we saw needed to be made.  Now the item is good as new.  The item won’t be sold by me, but I have seen this item go for some good money.  Thanks dear for advising me to keep it.

After we finished with that we continued going through the rest of the things that I had been collecting.  We found a very old 33 record, and book.  While these were nice back in the day the times have changed, and everything is audiobook, or other digital means.  If I had a usb turntable it may have swayed my decision to heave this item, but I am not going to go out and spend money to be able to use something that has absolutelly very little value at this point in time.

The Dream Gets Its Sorcerer

The Disney Dream is getting closer to a full reality, and I am very anxious about going away for 2 cruises on her.  Here is a video showing the Sorcerer Mickey piece for the back of the ship.

Disney & Star Wars… What a Match.

I have never had the opportunity to get to Disney during the well known “Star Wars Weekends.”  I have been trying to get there for a long time, but the money situation isn’t helping.  I am going to at least try to start collecting the Disney figurines that are released.

Here are some photos from StarWars.Com.

Disney’s My Pal Mickey

cencolimg_palmickey

I was amazed to get a email about this a while ago, but the My Pal Mickey has been discontinued.

My daughter got one years ago, and she loves it. Actually, the husband, and I like it also.

While I am sure there were some issues with the item, I am sure that it was a success. Disney only states that even though the My Pal Mickey is discontinued, he will continue to operate. You can still find some at select locations throughout the Disney Resort.

My Pal Mickey is an item that you carry around with you, and he plays interactive games, and gives important park updates, like times, and Fastpass info.
