"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."
Hi there! I'm Kirsten, just another 20-something year old (princess) with an affinity for all things Disney. I have a Disneyland annual pass, an unhealthy obsession for Mickey Mouse, encyclopedia-like knowledge of Disney movies, and way too much time on my hands. Add that all up and you get Mickeyandminnie!

“This would be a man that loves going to work and does not dread it the night before. Upon entering the Magic Kingdom, one of the security guards said to the girl “Excuse me Princess, can I have your autograph.” I could see that the book was filled with children’s scribbles as the guard asked the same question of many little Princesses. The little girl could not get over the fact that the guard thought she was a real princess.”

Pirate Week: Why talk like a pirate one day when you could celebrate these scalawags all week long?
