Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop – Disney Hats, Caps, Bonnets, and Bows!

Mike with his Mickey Ears and Shane

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s edition of the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop!  As always, Deb from Focused on the Magic is hosting this for us, so a big thank you goes out to her!  This week the theme is Disney Hats, Caps, Bonnets, and Bows!  Since I have not been known to wear bonnets and bows, I don’t have any pictures of them — but I do have a couple of pictures to share with you, I guess they fall into the Disney Hats category.  At the top of our post you see me and my new nephew-in-law Shane (remember, Shane was smart and married Stephanie) with me sporting my very first pair of Mickey Ears!  On the back it proudly says “Mickey” in honor of my nickname when I was a kid, but as you can tell, even though it was an adult large size, it barely fits! Now it sits around the house more as a Disney momento then anything else!

The picture below us is from when we were riding the ferry over to the Magic Kingdom from the TTC.  The day was October 1, 2011 — who can tell me what milestone date that was?  Actually by my side is my wife Cindy, but she doesn’t like her picture being taken, so she had me crop her out.  I’m sporting my fun Mickey Safari Hat, that I got several years before and still enjoy to this day.  Tell me, don’t I look good in that hat?

Thank you for stopping by today to get your Disney photo fix!  Now, head on over to Deb’s site to see what other great entries there are for us to enjoy!  Just click on the button below, and thanks!

86 Days til Disneyland – Mickey’s Soundsational Parade!

Welcome to day 86 in our Days til Disneyland countdown!  Today we are looking at our first parade — Mickey’s Soundsational Parade, which you can see on Main Street, U.S.A. at the Disneyland Park.  This parade looks like a jumping good time, with music, characters, and floats galore!  I think this will be a great parade to see and enjoy when we get to Disneyland!

Everything I’ve read about the parade indicates that it is a lot of fun, but I know that you all know best when it comes to what’s fun and what’s not at Disneyland.  So tell me, do you like this parade?  Is it worth making time to stop and enjoy it, or should we catch it only if we happen to be in the area and have nothing better to do at that moment.  You tell me.  Personally, I think this parade, a freshly popped popcorn, and a bottle of Diet Coke sounds like a great idea when we get there in June!

Before I close off, I wanted to remind you of a few things.  First of all, don’t forget that we’ve got a contest going right now for a Disney Dooney & Bourke Barrel Bag.  The contest runs until April 1st, 2013 at 11:59PM, so make sure you enter every day (there are things you can do each day for bonus entries).

Second, we’ve got our 100 Days til Disneyland page running on the site — if you have missed any of these posts, go back and see them for yourselves!  Maybe it will help you in your own Disneyland planning!

And lastly, I wanted to remind you that I am an Authorized Disney Travel Agent with Pixie Vacations, so if you have any travel needs you would like for me to look at, please feel free to send me a request from the form on my Pixie Vacations page.  Your privacy is our priority — we will never sell or share your email address with anyone!

Thanks for stopping by, everyone, we’ll see you tomorrow for Day 85 in our 100 Days til Disneyland countdown!
