30 Day Disney Challenge- Day 9 “Favorite Character to Meet

Confessions of a Mouskaholic's 30 Day Disney Challenge

Confessions of a Mouskaholic’s 30 Day Disney Challenge

Alright, Day 9,  and my favorite Disney Character to Meet.  I am going to break this one into two categories- Animated Characters, and Face Characters (Just because interacting with the two are quite different.)

So first, my favorite animated character to meet is Tigger!  He has been my favorite since I was little!  He’s so fun to meet (I’ve met him both at Crystal Palace, and in the park).  I love him so much that for my first Marathon ever (at Disney of course) I dressed up at Tigger!  I was so proud to get a picture with him and my marathon medal the following day! (And our course I can’t find the picture… MEH!!!!)

So in the other category, “Face Characters”-  it is definitely Mary Poppins!  She is so fun to interact with!  I’ve met her at both the Magic Kingdom (by the carousel) and at Epcot (in the United Kingdom).  During my last trip I asked her if I could take a “selfie” with her, and she didn’t miss a beat!  Her response was “Is that like a self portrait?  I have never heard of a selfie.”  I love the movie, and I love Mary Poppins (never just Mary)

Words of Walt- The Park

Today is a magical day for me, because I’m leaving for Disney after work today!!!  This coming weekend I will be running the Disney World 1/2 marathon!  Today’s “Words of Walt” quote is from the opening day at Disneyland and articulates BEAUTIFULLY why I love Disney, and why if I’m going to run 13.1 miles I choose to do it at Disney!

“To all who come to this happy place: Welcome.  Disneyland is your land.  Here, age relives fond memories of the past… and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.  Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America… with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”

As I’m preparing to head to Walt Disney World for the Disney 1/2 marathon I ran across this video.  As a person who needs to lose a few pounds and loves to run at Disney I thought this story was pretty amazing!  As we are coming off of new years and have probably already dropped the ball on a few resolutions, I hope you find this inspirational 🙂
