Are You A Fan?

I found the following article waiting in my “inbox” yesterday morning.  Click here to read “You Must Be A WDW Fan If. . .”

Did it have you laughing out loud like it did me?  I was giggling after number 1—No one asks you where you’re going on vacation anymore.  They just assume.  Yep.  That would be us.

But we are not the only ones who have vacation destinations that are visited repeatedly.  We know people who go to a cabin by a lake each summer or travel to sports games or tournaments.  And, while I know they are going, I still ask.

In terms of the “You Must Be A Fan If. . .” article, believe it or not, we still have a ways to go!  I didn’t know what MSEP stood for until someone on the PassPorter Message Boards set me straight—Main Street Electrical Parade.  Got it now!  And, number 23 is still throwing me for a loop.  I have no idea who those people are.  We also do not have a room in our house decorated in a Disney theme or like a Disney resort.  Hmmm. . . I did look a comforter for our bed once that came from a Disney collection once.  I didn’t buy it though.  Does that count?

I would add one to the list and that is your lawn chair that you take to various events has a Disney logo or designates you are a fan.  This idea came to me last evening as I was sitting in our Central Park listening to music and watching people who had gathered to celebrate a summer evening.  I saw folding lawn chairs—you know, the ones that come with a bag—that had logos for various colleges, sports teams, and businesses.  So later, I did a little internet search about the possibility of a Disney themed lawn chair.  Here’s what I learned:  they make them for little kids—Princess, Tinker Bell and Cars themed.  If you want to make your own, you have to pay a set up fee of around $50 and then buy a minimum of 12 or 24 chairs.  Not what I was hoping for.  So, I sent a message to my favorite on-line Disney customizer Zazzle.com and asked them to consider a new product.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

The husband and I were chatting about my dead end on-line shopping spree.  Disney doesn’t make or sell these types of chairs because they don’t want or let people bring them into the theme parks.  But I don’t want to bring my customized Disney themed folding lawn chair into a theme park; I want to bring it to the events in my local park so I show my Disney loyalty  I want to show that I am a “fan!”

The husband did suggest that I could find others who were interested in customized Disney themed folding lawn chairs to help defer the set-up cost and ensure that we didn’t have a dozen chairs in our garage by asking others who might be interested in forming a joint purchase.  Sometimes he has great ideas!  So, this is my plea:  If you want to join me in this venture, add a comment. 

Lack of lawn chair aside, I’m still chuckling over the article.  Sometimes things hit a little too close to home and it feels good to know you aren’t alone!
