Friends of ours just gave us some older mugs that they no longer had room for. We’re always happy to give a good home to orphaned Disney merchandise!
And so I would like to share with you three (technically four) Fort Wilderness mugs:
At one time you could buy a drink at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and get these great souvenir boot mugs. It was little extras like this that made Disney such a magical place to visit back in the day!
Tin-style Logo Mug
I don’t know the year of this but it is fairly early. Although ceramic, it is modeled after the old tin cups that campers used to use. A very nice idea!
And last but not least:
Mickey and Minnie love to RV!
I believe this to be an early mug due to the globe-with-ears logo on the Fort Wilderness sign. And if we take a closer look, we can see some fun details:
- Chip and Dale are about to drop a water balloon on Mickey’s RV
- Mickey has a bird house attached to the side of his RV
- Minnie has added a wooden flower box to the side of the RV, complete with flowers!
- Goofy and Donald are putting up a tent as Mickey’s RV arrives (see below)
Donald looks upset already!
I must say, when Karen and I stayed at Fort Wilderness, we didn’t quite stay in something as luxurious as Mickey’s RV. But we had fun and would recommend a visit to Disney’s Fort Wilderness to anyone!
