What is it? My favorite Disney souvenir is my Princess Wedding Dance Snowglobe from Walt Disney World in Florida.
Why is it so special? The reason I treasure this snowglobe above all the others in my collection, and among all of my other Disney treasures, is because my mom purchased it as a gift for me during a very special trip. You see, my mom was the one who introduced me to Walt Disney World when I was a teen. My first trip was when I was 15 and my sister, Linda, was 17. Together with my mom and stepdad, we enjoyed an awesome trip.
After my stepdad passed on in August 2003, my mom soon began planning a trip for my family and my sister’s family to go along with her to Walt Disney World as a tribute trip to Louis’ memory. After all, Louis was the whole reason she went to Walt Disney World in the first place, taking her two teenage daughters to tag along.
The trip she planned for all of us in 2004 was a lovely, loving time for each of us. That particular visit to WDW stands out to me for several reasons: it was the first trip I had taken with my mom since I was a teen; it was the first trip I had taken with my sister since we were teens; and my mom and Louis had made an unforgettable trip for us again. What put it on an even grander scale was that our children, our spouses, our mom, my sister and me were all together in the most magical place on earth. It was truly wonderful!
On the last day of our visit, my mother told me she had bought me something special as a remembrance of the trip. The Princess Wedding Dance snowglobe was my gift. It is the most beautiful snowglobe in my collection. It resembles a beautiful wedding cake and displays all the Disney princesses and princes in their wedding attire. When you wind it up, it plays beautiful music as each couple dances to their wedding song. I would have to say that even now, whenever I look at it, it is and always will be one of my most treasured Disney mementos; not only because of the sheer beauty of it but because of the wonderful memories I hold of that special visit. I am so thankful that I am blessed to have this treasure to enjoy for all my years to come and to serve as a reminder of just what a wonderful and loving mother I have been blessed to have for all these years.
Where did you get it? The gift shop at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
How much did it cost? I believe it was just under $100, but is priceless to me.
