Disney Wonder Pacific Cruise Part 4 PIN GIVEAWAY!!

Don’t miss Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 for my full trip report on the Disney Wonder Pacific Cruise, September 20-25th.

Notice I’m shortening the title? It’s getting a little unruly. But here we are on Part 4 of the cruise trip report and now, MYWTMouse fans, it’s time for a PIN GIVEAWAY!!!

But first, some chatting about our character breakfast. Our character breakfast was really a lot of fun, and because we were the second seating for dinner we didn’t have to get up insanely early to go to it either.

Theo was very excited!

Theo’s gotten really into characters lately, particularly Goofy, so it is always fun to meet the characters. I love character meals too. We had our first one at the Mouse-in-Law (Disneyworld for you newbies) and it was awesome. Such a great way to meet the characters in a low-key format, and you get to eat instead of just waiting in line!

Practicing our smile, sort of

Unfortunately the breakfast is a pretty packed house so you don’t get a lot of time with the characters (that was actually my main complaint of the whole trip was the availability of the characters. I actually wrote a big complaining email and got a very sincere apology for our disappointment, which was nice). Anyway,

This is Dale--you know because he's the one with the red nose

The characters had their pre-set route, and it seemed like we were the last table on the whole circuit so that was a little tough for Mr. Impatient (Theo, not Kevin). But one of my favorite moments was when Pluto came up behind Theo and Theo was completely unaware that he was there. Kevin had to tap him on the shoulder a few times to get his attention.


Pluto is so silly!

Chip swung by, like literally swung.

Chip is the one with the black nose, like a chocolate chip (I learned that on this blog!)

Theo has become a real Mickey and Minnie fan too.

Telling Minnie a story. Minnie is remaining strangely silent.

Mickey is definitely one of my favorites.

Hey big guy!

Gimme five!

We actually didn’t get to see Goofy given our location on the circuit and Theo’s attention level at the end of breakfast. We made up for it by seeing Goofy later though!

But now it’s time for the…


I never forget my loyal fans, even when I’m trying to! 😉 So I got a few souvenirs for my peeps. I looked for Disney Cruise Line exclusives, and I think you’re going to like…

Old-fashioned Captain Mickey!

I loved this little guy and can’t wait to send him to one of you! Now I’m not a pin trader–I have some pins I like so I don’t want to trade them–but I think this one will make a nice addition to anyone’s collection.

    I totally want a Mickey Pin!!!

    I want a Mickey pin! Sprite just started trading pins on our last visit to Disney World and at first she was hesitant to give away anything, and then once she realized what she could do, she started going up to every cast member with a pin set and demanding their time so she could peruse the merchandise. 🙂 I think I’m going to buy another pin lanyard and attach the special ones to that so she doesn’t trade those.

    • Shelby September 29, 2011 at 1:08 pm

      Another lanyard is a fabulous idea! Next time keep an eye out for cast members with a green or teal lanyard–those are for kids to trade only. I think that’s a great idea!

  7. Mackenzi Lee September 29, 2011 at 12:28 pm

  8. Melissa September 29, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    I want a Mickey pin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Your son is absolutely adorable. I have a 2 year old daughter and it is a chore to get her to smile when looking at the camera. It is also difficult to get a picture that doesn’t have her hand reaching for the camera while she is saying “I want to see”!

    • Shelby September 29, 2011 at 9:04 pm

      Thank you! Yes, the hand toward the camera is a problem of ours too. Our later pictures have a smudge in the upper left hand corner thanks to a fingerprint. It is hard to get him to smile so we try to sneak up on him to get the picture. Toddlers are a challenge.

    I liked you on Facebook a loooooong time ago.

  20. Marcie September 29, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    I want a Mickey pin! So I can put it on my purse strap for our upcoming, first-ever Disney cruise! (so your Wonder review is much appreciated!) Whew! I just made teh giveaway cut-off time!

    RE “Theo is going as Tuxedo Mickey which is pretty much going to skyrocket the Cute Chart all the way to the top.” For sure!

    • Shelby September 29, 2011 at 9:06 pm

      My mother-in-law is making him a hood with Mickey ears for the costume and came over to try on his new “hat.” We were afraid he wouldn’t want it on, but turns out we couldn’t get him to take it off! 😆

  21. BruinKristin September 29, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    OMG don’t pick me! Looks like that pin would mean a lot more to anyone else! I really wouldn’t know what to do with it…

    • Shelby September 29, 2011 at 10:33 pm

      With your luck, you’ll probably win this one.

      • BruinKristin September 29, 2011 at 11:28 pm

        Not to say that it’s not cute – because it is adorable and if I were a pin trader I would LOVE it. But I can see that pin either in Audrey’s mouth or the bottom of our toy box abyss. Neither would be a good outcome for that very handsome Mickey.

    I want a Mickey pin!!!!!! Also I already follow you on facebook!!!! I like your posts there alot!!!! I know how to follow instructions!!!!


  24. MelindaB September 30, 2011 at 9:02 am

    I love how giveaways bring out the commenters! Like Kristin, I don’t want to win the pin, and not because it’s not cute. Not because I’m concerned that it’ll end up in my kids’ mouths, either…although they’re teenagers, which is a lot like a second toddlerhood. They don’t want to go to bed when I want them to, they sometimes need a reminder to bathe, and “no” seems like one of their favorite words. 🙂 I’m not a pin collector, other than the random pins I’ve gotten over the years and that I hang onto for inexplicable reasons, like the possibility of “pin day” at school or something. And because I have a wee bit of a pathological inability to get rid of things that I *may* need someday, but I’m working on that. That pin deserves to go to somebody who will give it the love and cherishment (????) it deserves. (Yes, I did just make up a word there.) I’m not a pin trader because I would find it impossible to trade any pin that I didn’t have a duplicate of. Also, because I don’t go a lot of places where pin trading is a thing. But good luck to all of those who want the pin!

    Oh, and thanks for helping me *finally* learn which one is Chip, and which one is Dale! Until I forget again, that is.
