314 Merchandise and Memories

Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 314, for Sunday 10th May 2020. If you want to listen, whilst reading these notes, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunes, Libsyn, Stitcher Radio, or via any good podcast catching apps.
On this week's show, we give an update on our upcoming trips, how Michelle will celebrate her lockdown birthday and then we muse about merchandise and memories. 

Merchandise
Star Wars Day saw Shop Disney fail its customers. Michelle managed to get the UK key, which was free of charge. However, the pins disappeared and there was not much else. Whereas the USA site had much more merchandise but you couldn't get on it! Their key was $12.95. Sadly, Michelle was unable to get the special Starbucks Star Wars mugs - currently, the site has them on backorder for July. 

However, Michelle is over the moon to have finally ordered the Lego Disneyland Station station set - updates soon!
Disney Sentimental Items
Jayne shared the story of her Star Wars tattoo on her left shoulder. This is a symbol taken from Star Wars Rebels, representing the character Sabine Wren.
The tattoo marks the spot where Dave's hand was placed. This was done to connect with a memory from Star Wars Celebration in London in 2016. This memory links to when Jayne met Dave Filoni and below there is a great picture of them. 

Michelle
Michelle shared the story of her Disney Pandora bracelet; she began collecting charms all the way back in 2006! She now has sufficient to fill a necklace and have some to spare. Each one of the charms on the necklace is linked to a memory.
Michelle has now completed a necklace and has a range of charms. From gifts from friends to the charm given to her in 2018 when her now-husband proposed to her in the hub at the Magic Kingdom using the attached Mickey and Minnie charm; she has a pretty impressive collection.
