Never accept coffee from a mouse



Never accept coffee from a mouse, originally uploaded by Erin *~*~*.

Disney coffee is legendary for being pretty much uniformly dreadful. Therefore, as cute and ingenious as Wire Servant Mickey seems to be, DON’T DO IT. They brew Starbucks at the Swan and Dolphin, just a short boat ride away. Just sayin’ !!!

The sun is unrelenting, so I’m going for a browse through MouseGear to stay cool; will let you know if I find anything interesting!

Quirky Queen Sure Is Mean

030720102668-WDW-EPCOT-Red-QueenJohnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter have worked together on some strange films – Sweeney Todd, The Corpse Bride and recently, Disney’s update to Robert Louis Stevenson’s Alice in Wonderland. It’s not surprising that they’ve frequently worked together. Just as Johnny Depp has been making his career out of playing idiosyncratic characters, Helena Bonham Carter seems to be making a career out of playing mean girls. Her ongoing turn as Bellatrix LeStrange in the Harry Potter series seems destined to cement her image in our minds as a wild-eyed (not to mention the hair!) hellion bent on evil and destruction.

Here she is pictured as the Red Queen on a few pieces of merchandise found at MouseGear in Walt Disney World’s EPCOT theme park. I like the trick of the red heart superimposed over her lips. The heart makes it appear as though she is pursing, but if you look closely at the line of her lips, they are in repose and not pursed at all. Neat trick!

There are many benefits to shopping, especially while on vacation. In addition to flooding the brain with pleasurable endorphins (like chocolate), shopping can deliver some important inspirational messages. Next time you are in Walt Disney World, why not shop for inspiration? There are a variety of uplifting messages to be had in the T-shirt section of MouseGear alone!

Vacation Shopping Teaches Important Lessons

Walt Disney was a smart dude. He questioned the conventional. There is proof of this at MouseGear, a shop in Walt Disney World’s EPCOT. Just go through a rack of t-shirts there and you will probably find this one. Here, on this shirt, Walt asks perhaps the most important question he ever came up with – “WHY do we have to grow up?” Why, indeed? I’ve often wrestled with that one myself!


Well, the truth is, my friends – and I suspect Walt knew this – we do NOT, in fact, have to grow up. Evah! Wanna know how I know? I found evidence! Yes, irrefutable evidence, right in the same store. Check it out –

Now, I ask you – if growing up was an absolute requirement, would they make Mouse ears in adult sizes? I think not! See?

I therefore refuse to grow up.


Who’s with me?
