#throwbackthursday: Mousekeeping Surprises

Wouldn't it be great if someone started a housekeeping company that left nifty little mickey-themed gifts for you when they cleaned your house, so when you came home tired from work - voila!- balloons of happiness in your dining room or adorable stuffed animal vignettes on your bed? Yeah, I'd totally sign up for that service!!! 

Today's #tbt, some pics of the awesomeness of the mousekeeping staff from our 2011 trip! The kids adored coming back to the room to these sweet surprises! I'm sure they'll remember it for years to come: I know I still remember the little gifts I received from the housekeepers when I was a kid staying at Caribbean Beach (back then it was little pens and notepads and candies)!

Can you believe how little Eva was? I still can't believe we did Disney with an infant! What were we thinking!?

The only bummer of note about becoming DVC members is that the mousekeepers don't come every day (unless you specifically request them to and pay extra) and they don't do the extra little things that we were accustomed to the mousekeepers at Caribbean Beach Resort doing. I've only got the 2013 trip to use as a frame of reference... but on the two occasions when they did come to our room, there were no towel shapes or doll vignettes or surprise balloons, but maybe that was just a fluke? I guess we'll have to see what happens on the next trip!
