Editor’s Note:
  • November 27, 2014: Happy Thanksgiving One and All – As you celebrate your turkey day, we'd like you to know that what we are most thankful for around here is YOU. Thank you for your continual support, we couldn't do this without you!  -  Here's something fun, we have two special edition magic bands from this past weekend's Destination D event in Orlando to give away. The bands are brand new and never used (nor have they been associated with any Disney Experience account).  Enter the sweepstakes HERE. -   Also, we invite you to save the date for the MiceChat 10th anniversary weekend - February 6th through 8th at the Disneyland Resort. This is shaping up to be an amazing extravaganza of Disney goodness you won't want to miss. ×0
