My great Aunt and Uncle lived in Florida when we were very young. My father decided to drive us down to visit them and it was a long three days for all of us. My Dad took us to Disney World for the afternoon. I was sick from all the driving and enjoyed none of Disney World; in fact, the Country Bears only made me feel worse! I remember none of the joy of Disney, how sad is that, except for the part where he let me pick out a toy. That was a treat. I though long and hard about that toy and picked a stuffed Donald Duck. I loved that Duck for years. I wish I knew what happened to him.
In 2009, on one of our trips to Disney World, after stopping in to Mickey's Philharmagic, as we were wandering out of the show, I ran across this vintage style Donald Duck in the little shop. Seeing Donald sitting there brought all the memories back and I grabbed him up quickly! He wound up being a special 75th Anniversary edition. His number is 2233 of 2400. I am lucky to have found him!
