    Angry I Want My Traditional Christmas Plastic Mug!!

    So after the CLP on Sunday night we headed over to the Christmas Roundup area to continue my yearly Christmas time tradition. Pick up a hot cup of cocoa in the official Disneyland Christmas mug for $5.00! I have five going all the way back to 2001!

    With excitement my wife and I proceed to the Christmas Roundup area and enter through the righthand side. I spot the cocoa and coffee cart off to the right of the stage and hastily move towards it!

    "One cup of hot cocoa in my traditional plastic Disneyland Christmas mug please!" I shout to the Cast Member behind the cart! With a smile and a confused look she states, "That will be $5.00 please!" Without hesitation I turn to my wife and say, "Honey do you have any cash on you?" With a stern look in her eyes she hand me a crisp new $5.00 bill! Like a giddy little boy I hand over my bill and cannot wait to wrap my hand around a nice hot cup of cocoa on a chilly Santa Ana blowing night!

    Ooooooo! The cup arrives! I see Mickey on it but the cup has a strange blue tint to it! What gives? I twist the cup three times searching for some sort of Christmas decoration, a hint of mistletoe, Mickey snowflake ears, holly, ANYTHING! Then I see the dreaded words "DREAMS DO COME TRUE!" AHHHHHHHHHH! Year Of A Million Screams has even infested my holiday plastic mug! I turn to the Cast Memeber and ask, "Where is the tradtional Christmas themed plastic mugs like from years past?" I get a somewhat unexcited shrug "I DON"T KNOW" followed by a "this is all we have" response.

    I drink my cocoa, get home, rinse out the cup, and stick it way back in the cabinet where hopefully it will never be seen again! I proudly remove my 2005 official Disneyland resort Christmas plastic mug and decide to use it for another season!

    Happy Holidays everyone from my Disneyland plastic Christmas mug to you! The Grinch has stolen my Christmas tradition!!!!

    What happened? Jack Sparrow Wanna-Be's took over christmas? Then again after looking at all the Jack Sparrow toys that are for sale, I'd say it's already happened.

    Word. It's just a mug. I got one last night because it had that nice blue color. Personally, that's my favorite color. But to let you guys in on a little secret, I got the same mug at DCA for $4.69.

    I got through just fine.

    Man, I was really looking forward to Christmas this year too.

    If only Disneyland would have given you that stupid little cup, we'd be able to celebrate.

    I hope this isn't another one of those times where some poor little kid goes hungry or is stuck in dirty diapers because his parents are too concerned with looking for pins and other trinkets to be bothered.

    Re: I Wnat My Traditional Christmas Plastic Mug!!

    For being such a fan of Disneyland, I don't really collect much, but I do collect the plastic mugs.

    During the 50th, they had the mugs featuring the different decades, but for some reason they never got past the 70's. I asked the manager of the bakery about a month ago if the 80's mugs would ever be sold and she said she didn't think so because Disney was really pushing this Dreams Come True thing.

    Do you put your plastic mug collection in a glass case or something?

    Watch, If I were you I'd go to City Hall and make your complaint known. You don't have to shake your fist or anything, but at least let them know that it's one of your favorite traditions. Couldn't hurt! Who knows, the marketers probably have no idea that you're out there collecting those mugs.

    I hope that, for what it's worth, your hot chocolate was good!

    That's harsh man. I don't think it is appropriate to personally insult me, or to use such harsh language. I did nothing of the sort to you.

    Bad form.
