If you’re like me, whenever you visit Walt Disney World you love to browse all the different shops. It’s funny because I’m normally not a good shopper and unless I have something I really need to purchase I dislike going to malls and shops. However, things are different when I’m at Walt Disney World. I love Disney merchandise.
Which brings me to the subject of this week’s blog. Things are a little different for me now that I live down here year-round, however when my wife and I came down from Massachusetts for visits we always were on the lookout for our “must have” items that we wanted to bring back home. For me, I always made sure that I brought back home a Walt Disney World T-shirt, polo shirt or sweatshirt. It was a “must have” item for me. As the hair on the top of my head began to mysteriously disappear that special “must have” item became Walt Disney World baseball caps. 🙂 For my wife, she was always on the lookout for that special piece of jewelry that caught her eye. More than often it was something “Tink”. Neither one of us went home without those special and “must have” items.
So, what special “must have” items do you bring back home from your trips to Walt Disney World? What special souvenirs are a “must” for you to purchase? They can be items you collect or just items that you like to wear. I realize that so many of you collect pins and Vinylmation figures. However, it would be great that if you do collect those items if you could also list any other items that are a “must”.
OK, I’ve told you mine, now it’s your turn to let me know what your favorites are.
You could win an AllEars® baseball cap. I will take all the names of those who post a comment (see below) with your list within the next couple weeks, and I will put them in a hat and randomly draw the name of the lucky winner. The only rules are that you must reside in the US, be 18 years old or older and you must provide your email address so I can contact you should you win.
All comments must be posted no later than Sunday, September 5, 2010 in order to be eligible to win the baseball cap. The winner of the AllEars® baseball cap will be announced shortly thereafter.
To make things a bit easier for you can just copy and paste the following into the Post A Comment section below and add your information:
My “Must Have” Items
In the coming weeks I will blog on more “favorite” things to do in Walt Disney World. Also, let me know if you have any suggestions as to other things you would like to see “top lists” of. I’m open to any and all suggestions. So far readers have suggested I blog on Magical Moments and Favorite Disney Tours. Great ideas! What do you think? Based on the number of comments, I think you all agree that these are fun to do.
Special “thanks” to Megan (TicTackGirl) for giving me the idea for this blog!
And the winner is: the winner of the AllEars® baseball cap for commenting on my “Favorite Character Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner” blog is: MaryAnn Eckenrode from Pennsylvania. Congratulations to MaryAnn and “thank you” to everyone who took the time to share their reasons “Why Do You Love Disney” with me and all the loyal AllEars® readers!
I also want to comment on last week’s blog. I must admit I was somewhat surprised that Mickey’s PhilharMagic was the most popular Walt Disney World 3D movie by such a wide margin. I thought that Muppet 3-D would be at the top of more folks lists. However, I think that everyone agrees, that those two along with Captain EO, Honey I Shrunk The Audience, and It’s Tough To Be A Bug are fantastic attractions that are not to be missed. So, if you haven’t already seen all of these 3D movies then you’re missing some great fun!
Finally, be one of the first people to hear when my newest blogs go live on AllEars.net by joining “DisneyMike’s World” Facebook group.
Well, that’s all for now. As my good friend says, “see ya real soon”…DizneyMike
