Finding Snow White at the D23 Expo 2013

My goodness this blog post is late!  I'm sure everyone has read all about the D23 expo, so I will keep this post focused on our girl.

There wasn't much Snow White related at the expo this year.  There was no expo exclusive merchandise with Snow White for sale: my pocket book was quite happy, but the collector in me was quite grumpy.  There was, however, one button featuring Happy and Grumpy that was given out after the Legends ceremony.  There were other characters featured on these variety of these buttons handed out, but check out the boys on Pin Pics (#97810).  In the Mickey's of Glendale, guests had an opportunity to purchase pin sets (LE 2000) from Walt Disney Imagineering featuring the New Fantasyland construction fence art for the Seven Dwarf Mine Train attraction.  There were five of them for sale, check them out on Pin Pics (#98393-98397).

I did snap a few photos of Snow White items around the show floor and in a few presentations:

 And that was about it!  I'm not confident that I found every Snow White reference in the expo this year, so if you know I missed one, I'd be glad to hear!

WDW Radio Ornament Exchange

This year I participated in the WDW Radio Holiday Ornament Exchange.  What a fun idea.  I received a family to mail an ornament to, and then received one from another family in the mail.  Who doesn't love getting any mail that isn't a bill, let alone a wonderful holiday gift?
I was so excited to open the box and find two, homemade Snow White ornaments from a lovely family in Florida!  Check these out!  Such a creative idea.
