Look at her --
she was in heaven for a few minutes there --
surrounded by hundreds of Mickeys!
I almost hesitate to mention this, but I'm afraid Miss Maddy is a bit of a shopper!
One of her absolutely favorite things to do at Disney is . . . shop!!!
Oh yes, she liked some rides, saw some characters, swam in the pool, and munched on some chicken nuggets and fries, but her most favorite thing -- going into so many stores filled with stuffed animals of every kind and size!!!!!
And shopping for her is not some quick in and out of the store.
No, she needs to examine the goods -- in this store, she pawed around and pulled out a Mickey here or there to make sure it didn't have any flaws or holes.
The expression on the face of a salesclerk who came over to re-position and reorganize the Mickey shelves was priceless! The girl looked absolutely horrified that someone would mess with the Mickeys!!
Our first evening there (the day that started at 4 AM and ended around 11 PM!!!),
she was determined to find a "Bolt" dog -- from the movie, you know.
Lucky for me, we found one quickly.
You would think that would be the end of the search, wouldn't you?
No, we still had to check other stores just in case they might have a different, maybe smaller, maybe bigger, cuter Bolt! Alas, there were none to be found.
Bolt did get to join us on the teacup ride -- we love that ride!
