Tito Tuesday!

Today we have a special little dog from the Disney film Oliver and Company.    Tito (full name: Ignacio Alonzo Julio Frederico de Tito) is a Chihuahua from Fagin's gang in Disney's 1988 movie, Oliver & Company. He was voiced by Cheech Marin.

Tito is a wisecracking, proud Chihuahua who seems to forget how small he is, and his fiery temper goads him into fights with anybody, even to take on dogs much larger than himself, perpetuating the stereotype that many small dogs, especially Chihuahuas, can be much fiercer than big dogs. He also considers himself something of a ladies' dog, flirting with the spoiled poodle Georgette. He speaks with a thick American-Mexican accent, suggesting he's a Mexican (South American) dog. He has anger issues and he is tough and good-hearted.

My Disney Pin Collection Monday

This week the pins I am featuring are two of the pins in the Hidden Mickey Collection.  I have the 1 of 5 and 3 of 5 that are pink and blue, respectively.  I picked these two pins, so I could have pink, and my husband could have blue to wear.  


As we have been trying to feature some not-so-common Disney characters, it is time to feature one of my very favorites!  Miss Minnie Mouse herself!!

Below are several of my favorite pictures of Minnie.

Stromboli Sunday

Stromboli...........the character, not the sandwich!  Evil, nasty, mean, sends a chill up my spine for how terrible he treated poor little Pinocchio!  (We do feel obligated to throw a villain in here now and again!)

Stromboli is one of the five antagonists in Disney's 1940 animated feature film Pinocchio. He is a puppeteer, a showman and a gypsy, his primary concern is making money. As such, he is delighted to buy Pinocchio from Honest John and Gideon. He locks Pinocchio in a cage to ensure that his star attraction doesn't return home. His name in the original Italian story by Carlo Collodi was Mangiafuoco which literally means 'Fire-eater'. Though eccentric and entertaining. Stromboli is also a threatening and imposing villain; for this reason, he is often cited as one of Disney's greatest villains. He is named after Stromboli, the Italian volcano (the food called "stromboli" is named for the same volcano).

This week on FOODIE FRIDAY we set sail once again aboard the Disney WONDER.  Today, we feature our second dinner on our cruise.  This happens to be the night we dined at PALO, and once again this dining location did not let us down.  The food, the service.........all top notch!!   This is the one location where you have to spend a very small amount to dine.  It was $25.00 per person at the time we sailed, but I understand the amount is increasing to $30.00 per person, still well worth the money.

Our server Hristo was awesome, and he is featured here!  I gave him the address for this blog, so I hope he can see this at some point.  When we are able to sail on the WONDER again, we would definitely ask for him as a server for our PALO experience!


extra courses they let us try!

                                                     Here we are with our server, Hristo! 
                          If you sail on the WONDER, and dine at PALO, be sure to ask for him!!

Flower Friday

I know...I know...........a contradiction in a name for sure..........but Flower....even though he is a skunk, he is one of the cutest Disney characters ever!!!

I hope you enjoy seeing these old items from the park.  Please leave your comments in the area below.  I would love to know what you think!

Stop by again next week for Throwback Thursday!  You never know when we will wind up!

Tigger Thursday

I know we have featured Tigger before, but he's so darn cute...

The wonderful thing about Tiggers

Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun
But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers
Is I'm the only one
Yes, I'm the only one

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY! Have you sailed on a Disney ship?

If you have sailed on a Disney Cruise Line ship, then you know this sight is special, and one I always look forward to seeing.  It's the picture of Walt Disney outside the Walt Disney Theater on the ships.  

Wiggins Wednesday

 Wiggins is the former tertiary antagonist in Disney's 1995 animated feature Pocahontas. He was Governor Ratcliffe's manservant, and like Ratcliffe, is voiced byDavid Ogden Stiers.
Disney Wiki describes his as follows:
He appears to be something of a foolish man, though he does have moments of brilliance. He displays great skill in art, as he is seen making animals out of the bushes, and makes a head decoration out of an arrow he found. Wiggins also seems to possess a certain Decorator's Aesthetic. Through most of the movie Wiggins is seen following Ratcliffe's banal orders, which range from disposing of food to bathing Percy to dressing Ratcliffe in his armor.
  • Unlike Ratcliffe and other Englishmen in the film, this character is totally fictional and not based on an actual historical person.

Thomas O'Malley Tuesday

If you are familiar with the Disney film The Aristocats, then you will surely love Thomas O'Malley.  He is the Tom cat of all Tom cats!  Abraham deLacey Giuseppe Casey Thomas O'Malley is the male protagonist in Disney's 1970 feature film, the Aristocats. He was voiced by Phil Harris in the original film.

Disney-Wiki describes Thomas like this:
Thomas O'Malley comes off as a smooth-talking, streetwise cat who relishes his life of freedom out in the open with no rules and no responsibilities. All of this changes when he meets Duchess for the first time. He falls in love with Duchess when he first meets her, and he quickly starts flirting with and serenading her. Although he was obviously a little turned off by the fact that Duchess has kittens, but he and the kittens quickly grow on each other and he becomes like a father to them. Also, when faced with an adversity, O'Malley will indeed rise to the occasion to protect the ones that he cares for and loves.

My Disney Pin Collection Monday

Since we featured Max from The Little Mermaid in our character of the day post, we will just stay with that trend, and show you two pins from my "The Little Mermaid" collection.  Her we have Flounder and Scuttle in shell shapes.  These are part of the "Hidden Mickey" series.  Flounder is #3 of 6, and Scuttle is #6 of 6.  

Max Monday!

If you are familiar with the Disney film The Little Mermaid, then you have to know and love Max!  Max is the lovable sheepdog belonging to Prince Eric, who Ariel has fallen madly in love with.  I have had two sheepdogs in my life, so they are near and dear to my heart.  Max really reminds me of the first one I had.  

How can you not love this guy????

Slim Sunday!

Slim,  our feature character for today, is a walking stick insect in Disney/Pixar 1998 film A Bug's Life. He is voiced by David Hyde Pierce.

Slim is very nervous and erratic, and is usually reprimanded by P.T. Flea. Apparently, he is unhappy with his position at the circus troupe, as his boss constantly casts him as a prop instead of an actual character. He is best friends with Heimlich and Francis, and seems to be tolerant of Francis' aggressive nature.

            Ladies and Gents,.........Slim.
