Hello, all!

I've just spent the last three days at Walt Disney World, with my brother, "babysitting" my grandmother and mother. It's been awesome.

....

So, to share some of the magic with you all, this weekend's challenge is all about Disney! By way of the random page button at the Disney wiki, I'll give you as many prompts as you like.




Rewards will be in graphic and/or written form, to the best of my ability. And, while my track record for getting rewards done has been sketchy, I do promise they'll get made. ♥
