Happy Thanksgiving Mickey

Stepping out into the chilly air this morning, I really felt it — Autumn is fully upon us! The leaves are turning red, orange and gold and practically every home is boasting some kind of pumpkin or scarecrow decoration. There’s less than one week to go before Halloween trick-or-treaters scamper across the neighborhood lawns and then we’ll turn our attention to that all-American holiday — THANKSGIVING!

Yes, it’s that time of year again!  Time to share your messages of thanks with the Special Mouse podcast community!

Thanksgiving Episode: The Special Mouse Community Gives Thanks – 055

Friends of the Special Mouse Podcast share Disney memories for which they are thankful on this Thanksgiving 2014 Episode!

Thanksgiving 2

In the spirit of Thanksgiving — this quintessential American holiday – a day set aside to officially give thanks for the blessings we enjoy throughout the year – I have decided to do a feature on something for which I am sincerely grateful – YOU!

Yes, you, the listener!

I’m turning this episode over to YOU by featuring YOUR favorite Disney memories that you are thankful for, recorded on our new SpeakPipe App.

But first,Please let me express my own attitude of gratitude!

Over the past year our community has grown exponentially, mostly due to our incredibly helpful and supportive private Facebook group. To the 213 members of that group, I say, “Thank You” for carrying out the message of our podcast – “the magic is for everyone” – by providing a safe, welcoming place for members to gather and discuss their concerns related to Disney travel. I’ve been truly blessed to make your acquaintance.

If you are not a member of the group and wish to join, please visit our public page, and let me know with a comment.


Thank you to my friends on Social Media who consistently like and share Special Mouse content on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus! Especially Maureen Deal, Sarah Norris, Heather Ford, Main Street Fairy, Ericka Busser, Debi Dame, Rae Augenstein, Jim Tucker, Sandy Nye, Stu Hassis, Andrew Carrieri, Ed Russell, Tracy Brooks, Jeanette Lynn, and many more!

Liking and sharing our content truly helps to spread the word about the show!


Thank you to my fellow Podcasters who have graciously invited me to be a guest on their shows to talk about Disney Travel for Guests with Special Needs – Lou Mongello from The WDW Radio Show, Ashley & Sam Turner from WDW Happy Place, Bob Coller & Tim Scott from the podcast, Jaren Buckley from the Building Special Families podcast, Frank Rogers from Mr. Frank’s Wild Ride and The Disney Dream Girls themselves, Michelle Young & Jayne Phipps.

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for sharing your audience with me!

If you would like to listen to any of these episodes, use the “As Heard On” tab, above.


Speaking of podcast audiences, I am sincerely grateful to those of you who’ve shared ratings and reviews of Special Mouse on iTunes this past year – not only because they are personally encouraging to me, but because each review nudges the show just a little higher in the podcast queue, making it easier for new listeners to discover!

Many thanks to: Don’t call me Jenny, Kima 861965, disneyfan 64, jenniferlyn 1085, bethcgreen, Bill Kaiser, fromlisa2, SkepticAlan, iceserraon, debcalloway, disneynut1985, Mark Vitek, ginnyxpotter, KaleenaScarlett, and many more.


And finally, before we get to our listener messages, I want to express just one more, extra-special thank-you to Michael J. Carrasco who has opted to support the show with a monthly donation via PayPal. Michael, your gift is greatly appreciated and goes a long way in helping me produce the show.

If you’re not familiar with podcasting, there are some regular monthly expenses involved – web and media hosting, editing services, purchase of software and hardware, and so forth – and so your financial support, whether through a monthly or a one-time donation – truly helps me to continue providing the Special Mouse podcast as a service to the Disney community.

Information about supporting the show in this way can be found at


And now, on to our Thanksgiving holiday feature – Disney Memories We’re Thankful For by The Special Mouse Listeners!

Wishing you a healthy and happy Thanksgiving,
