Welcome Disney Blog Hop Friends! Great to see you all and a big thank you to our hop host, Babes in Disneyland and co-host, Manda’s Disney Blog!! This week’s theme is such a huge part of what Walt Disney World means to me, “Magic Moments”. For me they are everywhere but I happened to come across this series of photos that create a “photo essay” of sorts of one recent “magic moment” .

I’ll set the scene a bit…we are huge Toy Story 3 fans. Every member of the MouseEars family has seen it a ridiculous number of times. DD had it in her mind during a recent WDW visit, that she would meet Lotso. Who cares if he’s pure evil?! She loves him. So, we found the smaller stuffed strawberry-scented version at Disney’s Hollywoood Studios and we headed off to see if we could find the real deal.

Mission accomplished.

    Great shots! It is a priceless moment when your child sees that one character that they have their heart set on. When they were doing the Up meet and greet, DS was set on seeing Dug, Carl, and Russell. We tried to tell him that he probably wouldn’t see them all. We actually hit it at change time and saw all three. Priceless!

    • We’ve also met the Up characters but I think I boo- hooed my way through meeting Carl! Those scenes with his wife kill me everytime I watch the movie…lol! I really love thiose character meets inside the Animation Studios. So happy that your son found his faves during your visit, too πŸ™‚

    Hey Bettina

    I love reading these and seeing your pics! If we ever go to Disney in Florida you will have to be my consultant. Lotso looks so cute here – I still haven’t got over the shock of his evil side. Toy Story 3 very popular in our home too – although the other day Anna dredged up from her memory two apparantly much loved cuddly chums who I apparantly cruelly gave to the charity shop. She didn’t play with any of these things for years – but still – should never have donated them!!

    • Linda, you have my word that if you all come over…I won’t just be your consultant, I’ll be your personal tour guide πŸ™‚ ! I completely relate to your “issue” with Anna…even Max (as a teenager!) is still attached to toys that I think for sure were heading to the basement (our first stage prior to permanent departure…lol)! Can’t wait to hear more from you soon :). Love seeing your pics!! And when we get back to the UK one day, we will definitely make a side trip to Disneyland Paris…and I’m counting on you guys to return the “tour guide” favor. Hugs from all of us!
