D23: Issue 2 Cover Shots

I got some tweets on Twitter about wanting to see some shots of the cover of the new issue of Disney Twenty-Three Magazine.  So here you all go (You can click on the images to see larger versions):

D23: Free “Gift” with Issue 2 of Disney Twenty-Three Magazine

Well, I got a ring at the doorbell and it was our postal carrier.  She had couple very familiar boxes in her hand.  They were the same box that our welcome packet and premier issue of Disney Twenty-Three magazine showed up in.

Personally, I felt it was way too early for the second issue to arrive, but who am I to argue.

When I tore open the box, I was greeted with a small envelope:

D23BeatTheHeat_AcresOfFun_0001 I opened up the envelope and found a small folded up item.  According to the fine print on the envelope, it’s a reproduction of the 1955 “Acres of Fun” Disneyland Souvenir fan from the Walt Disney Archive Collection:

The item opens up to form a fan:

This was highly unexpected.  Granted it isn’t an item of great monetary worth but it’s something that is really nice with it’s reproductions of originally 1955 artwork from the attractions that were in Disneyland during it’s first year.

This will definitely find a place in my cabinet of Disney collectibles.

Not quite a Character Breakfast

We aren’t able to get to Disney anytime soon, but Enchanted Rose whipped out or Mickey Mouse waffle maker and made up these little bad boys.  Not quite a breakfast at Boma or Crystal Palace, but it helps get one’s mind wandering.  For the record, her waffles are much better than the ones you get at the buffets at Walt Disney World
