Disneyland Update: It’s All About The Candy Canes
It’s a post-turkey MiceChat Disneyland Update. We sure do hope you had a happy Thanksgiving. I spent the day at Disneyland and it was quite enjoyable. While busy, it wasn’t packed. But we spent most of our time doing the sorts of things that don’t generally get long lines . . . and we used Fastpass a couple times as well.

Just in time for the holidays, MiceChat has launched a brand new shop featuring fan art, Disnerland, and MiceChat logo wear. We are currently offering a special on Disnerland attraction poster parody mugs. Buy 4 Disnerland Mugs and get $10 off with promo code: DisnerMugs – MiceShop HERE
