On my last trip to the World I was going to buy a bronze replica of Goofy that was on sale in Epcot but for one reason or another didn't get round to it. It was exactly like the one of him in MK in front of the castle. I imagine he's no longer available now :(

Anyway, I thought I was going to go back the following year so I could get it then but that never happened either! It's one of the few things I wished I'd brought back with me :oops:

What's been yours?

I buy the Christmas Mickey plush every year .... apart from one year, I don't know why I didn't buy him but I really regret that. He was in disguise as Rudolph and I keep checking ebay for him but have never seen him :(

It's not a big thing...but when we were there in 2006, there was a ToT tshirt with Stitch dressed in the bellhop uniform cutting the cord on the elevator. We saw it our first day there, but we didn't get it, intending to pick it up on our next trip to MGM...things happened and we never made it back.:( Jordan was so disappointed. I've been trying to find it on ebay to no avail.

Various ride photo's, and this maybe only half counts, but I bought a picture frame in MGM, which flashed when you push a button, it was the 50th celebration year and I bought it.
Anyway, as I was leaving the park A little girl tapped me on the shoulder and said "excuse me your bag is flashing" so I looked and the button had been pressed in too far. I told myself I'd fix it when I get back to the villa, instead of going back to return it.
Anyway, turned out I couldn't fix it and now I'm left with a photoframe that doesn't flash. I should've went back and changed it, cos now its just not as special

Just this past trip The Emporium at the MK had a vintage looking Mickey , soooooo soft and I don't know why, but I didn't buy him . I regret it now, but since dzneeprincess is going soon, she said she'd pick him up if she sees him .

Years ago there was a Disney Shop on PI that carried very high end pieces. They has aTiffany style Tink lamp. I thought I would wait until I could better afford it. The shop closed and I've nerver seen such a lamp since.

I like this (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130233080719) one Tink but the price is scary! :shocked025:

On my first visit to WDW in 1981, I bought clear glass mugs with the WDW logo (globe with ears at the time) and names engraved on them. Guess who is the one person left off the list? Moi :rolleyes: A few of them bit the dust in earthquakes and moves, but a most people still have them! :D

When Bob and I were on our Honeymoon at Disney in 1976 the first place we ate at was Tony's. They had these wonderful mugs and plates with Lady and the tramp on them. They even had a set of 4 mugs you could buy and I wanted them, but I forgot to go back and get them :(

We didn't make it back again to Disney until 1985 and of course they didn't have them anymore and I could not find them anywhere :( I still check e-bay every once in a while for those mugs, but so far no one even knows what I'm talking about :rolleyes008:

Claire, the one I saw originally, was much more elaborate (and to my eye, nicer) that that one. Yes, that was the price, give or take. I think the one I saw years ago was closer to $300. I'm not positive but I think the one I saw was handmade, maybe by Meyda? Not sure. It was more classic Tiffany style, as well.

The one you've linked to is the first since that original one that I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing the link!
