Back in the early 90's, Disney started to hold Official Disneyana Conventions. I didn't make it to one of them. I'm not sure this was a bad thing, since I heard mixed reviews on the organization of these events, and I really couldn't afford a majority of the merchandise being offered anyway.
The one year I was very disappointed I didn't go was 1996. Each year of the convention had a theme, and 1996's was The Brave Little Tailor, my favorite Mickey Mouse cartoon. The convention was September 3-7th, and I had already scheduled a trip for later that month, so I could be at the park for Walt Disney World's 25th anniversary on October 1st, so I was out of luck.
Or was I? To my astonishment, there were several convention items for sale in the Magic Kingdom! I bought a few of the more affordable items, and they have been favorites for years.
Today, let's take a look at the mug I bought way back in 1996.
