GUEST BLOGGER: NICK MAGLIO
Back in the early 90’s, Disney started to hold Official Disneyana Conventions. I didn’t make it to one. I’m not sure this was a bad thing, since I heard mixed reviews on the organization of these events, and I really couldn’t afford a majority of the merchandise being offered anyway.
The one year I was disappointed I didn’t go was 1996. Each year of the convention had a theme, and 1996’s was The Brave Little Tailor, my favorite Mickey Mouse cartoon. I have shared a five other Tailor items in the past, and those can be found at the bottom of this post.
The convention was September 3 – 7th, and I had already scheduled a trip for later that month, so I could be at the park for Walt Disney World’s 25th, so I was out of luck. Or was I? To my astonishment, there were several convention items for sale in the Magic Kingdom! I bought a few of the more affordable items, and they have been favorites for years.
Today, let’s take a look at the mug I bought way back in 1996:
The graphics and color are just beautiful, just like Princess Minnie
The giant can’t believe there were still mugs left after the convention…
…because they were limited to 2,000 pieces! Made exclusively for the Walt Disney Theme Parks and Resorts.
'Pretty cups' (french)
Thanks! We think so too!
'Merci! Nous pensons que oui aussi!
I did at one time, Lisa, but right now, it is on a shelf with other Mickey Mouse collectables, so I don't break it.
This is a great mug, Nick! Do you use it?
