We visited one of the numerous gift shops. The first one that we went into was huge. I think that there are around 8 or ten huge rooms with each room having a particular theme. This is
The employees dress in colorful costumes. The one employee is demonstrating a special wand for blowing bubbles.
The bubbles are hard to see but if you look close you can see them.
This is just one of the eight rooms. Very high ceilings. The Mickey logo can be seen, one round circle for the head and two round circles for the ears.
Well Disney has them also. I spotted these while in the gift shop and they brought back memories of peeling the candy buttons off of the paper and eating them.
There is a difference though. The buttons that I got were small in diameter, the ones at Disney were much bigger. Those are rock candy on a stick above the candy buttons. And the rock candy sticks come in different colors. I liked the rock candy as a child but found it so hard and slow to dissolve. What are those tubes on the right in the picture? Marshmallow tubes. An interesting treat but I never had one as a child.
There was just so much to see and we only saw a small part of it. It was a wonderful and fun-filled day. The time passed so quickly. Since it is free we can always go back again and again. Oh yeah, we also got a free boat ride across the lake, but that is another story. Have a fantastic day. Lew
