I wish I could! I'm attempting to get into running and so far I love it, but I just can't afford to run a Disney race yet. My goal is to run the Tinkerbell half next February! Good luck with your race, I know you can do it!
Why can't they do a "Zumba dance with Disney" or something like that? I'm also NOT a runner so I admire all of you runners out there! - MissAmericaSings 441.2 #529 1-19-13 11:14AMLike(7)Reply
Count us in! Me and my mini (18) are going to run! It's our first, and we started training in earnest this past week. We are so excited, but we are also sure that plenty of pixie dust and encouragement will be needed! Let's do this! - mrstoad 256.1 #1360 1-19-13 11:27AMLike(2)Reply

It's a safety issue. When I worked Pooh's Corner and guests wanted their apples cut, I asked my lead if we did that. She said no bc to many CM's were injuring themselves and they did not want sharp knives around. Also there wasn't a clean area to do it with clean utensils. We would give the guests plastic knives so they could cut it themselves. Probably more injuries there, But that's why. - splashphotoCM 885.6 #222 1-17-13 8:46AMLikeReply
This is absolutly a time for all the amazing minds who work for Disney to come up with a really cool machine for us to put our apples in at the parks and it can make bells and whistles and such and out comes a perfectly cut apple (kind of like it was at Charlie and Wonkas Chocolate Factory!) - secretagentangel 8056.4 #11 1-17-13 5:29PMLikeReply
Please add me for CourtyAstroBlisters. Even though she's a Giants fan, I hope she gets this so she can enjoy a little bit more magic after her run. 😁 Thank you for your generosity. Hope you get an ap again soon. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM 1002.5 #204 1-8-13 6:32PMLike(3)Reply

Today at an adoption event, I let a little girl into the cat enclosure to look at the adult cats, with her mom looking on. She was so excited to see and play with the kitties, and it was a joy to watch.
My mom was just telling me about this, and what she decided to do. At dinner last night, her waitress seemed down & sad, so she asked her what was wrong. She told my mom her car had been broken into that day & some Christmas presents and other items were stolen. Feeling for the girl, my mom tipped her the same amount of their dinner bill, hoping this would help out some. 😊 - London-In-Wonderland 451.0 #522 12-23-12 5:25PMLike(10)Reply

Wrap a cute Disney picture frame with a message relating to your trip! That way, the picture frame can be for holding a picture of you two on your trip.
Do an Adventure Book like from "Up" and on one page write "Our Next Adventure" and have tickets or pictures of Disney World. - IDVandalSkipperCM 2619.3 #57 12-21-12 1:58PMLike(9)Reply
Several years ago, my daughters' Christmas present was a trip to Disneyland. I bought those magnetic letters for kids (the brightly colored ones that you put on the fridge), pulled out the letters that spelled "Disneyland" and wrapped them up in twos and threes. Then they had to shuffle the letters around until they figured out what the present was. - jmgphx 323.1 #836 12-21-12 1:55PMLike(1)Reply
Not a fan. I am also not a fan of bringing Starbucks into magic kingdom. Too common , both McDonald's and Starbucks could be found on any corner USA. Disneyland should be unique and has the success to be so. - polo33 80.3 #4073 12-19-12 5:36AMLike(5)Reply
I never met her, but seeing the outpouring of love makes me wish I had. Dahulagirl sounds like a truly incredible person and I can see that she will be greatly. missed!
She will be truly missed and never forgotten..her smile and laugh were so infectious and she was somebody that you just wanted to be around as much as you could. Her positive vibrations just bounced off her to everyone who was around her and her caring and kindness was beyond anyone that I had met before. I don't think you guys really know how much she really did for MouseWait and helped shape this community..I will miss her so much but I am so happy and blessed that I got to know her and call her my friend..She touched so many of our lives in such a positive way that she will never be forgotten and I will forever cherish the memories I had with her and many of you all....my thoughts are with her loving Husband E818, her Brother Shangz and the rest of the Dahulament clan that loves her so much... - Dave 13820.5 #4 12-13-12 12:34PMLike(59)Reply
Still, hours after receiving the very sad news of her passing, I am at a loss for the right words... She was a treasure to our family. She blessed us in HUGE ways with her beautiful friendship. The impact she had on this community of friends was nothing short of amazing. The world needs more of the love, kindness, generosity, joyfulness, positivity... that this gem of a woman daily lived out. Our family is covering her family in prayers for comfort and peace during what we know to be a very sad and difficult time. That one of a kind light up your entire day smile she so generously showered so many of us with is going to be so incredibly missed. Love you, friend... Thanks for being that, a VERY special friend, to our family AND to the MouseWait family. - MrsPrinceCharming 12-13-12 1:56PMLike(38)Reply
Please add me! My favorite princess is the Crown Princess Mary Elizabeth of Denmark - she's so pretty and her family is so cute and stylish!
What a gorgeous pin!! Please add me!! I would have to say Princess Diana for all that she did charitable wise in her short life, but I believe Princess Grace was the epitome of elegance (and I love Country Girl with William Holden and Bing Crosby), but the best princess ever met in real life is named Hollygolightly :) Thank you - Willierose 2372.5 #70 12-11-12 6:55PMLike(2)Reply

My favorite quote (just because it's a classic) is Buzz: "They're a terrilium-carbonic alloy, and I CAN fly." I love that part in World of Color, too! Please add me, my boyfriend loves Buzz, Woody, and Cars, so he would love these.
Buzz: Excuse me, I think the word you're searching for is "Space Ranger".
Woody: The word I'm searching for I can't say because there's preschool toys present.
Please add me. Thank you. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM 1002.5 #204 12-4-12 10:24PMLike(1)Reply

I hate this discussion and I think everyone knows where I stand on this issue. Just because a disibilty isn't visible, doesn't mean it's NOT as crippling as those that are. Anyone who says different is uneducated and ridiculous. - Mrsblue 693.1 #309 11-17-12 4:08PMLike(29)Reply
I don't think ANYONE with a disability needs to explain to ANYONE what their disabilities are!! I'm sorry for your anxiety/panic attacks. If getting a GAC helps, than you go for it! That's what it's for. I hope the GAC does help so you are able to enjoy your time in the parks! :) - LizO 471.1 #491 11-17-12 4:00PMLike(4)Reply

My whole family was in tears. It was an amazing day!!

Please add me for RCmom. Although I've never met her, I love her "best memory"! My best memory would have to be going on POTC with my grandma when I was younger. My brother & I would have contests to see who could yell "I love grandma!" louder while going down the drop. She ended up passing away due to breast cancer, so in honor of her, my brother and I always try to yell as loud as we can while going down the drop in POTC! :) - GrimGrinningAmanda 666.9 #323 11-16-12 5:52PMLike(7)Reply

Ok, guys I have an update! Laura is here in the next room...I bought her pass online and am gonna wrap it up like a present for her birthday. The plan is that I'll ask her to come to dinner somewhere in DTD, ya know for the "atmosphere" and some made up story about a scarf I left there yesterday. Then I'll have her open her present and try to film it for you guys! And of course, we'll then come marching right in to DL or DCA :) Everyone who wants to, come say hi to the newest AP member! I'll update on the timing...Hopefully we can go to the Cove bar. She's never been there either. Thanks everyone for your suggestions!! - MissMolly 1386.7 #140 11-16-12 3:42PMLike(4)Reply
