Really, South Asia? Part Eleven (Disney World? Ummm, No)

Whoever owns Disney these days is making a ton of money here in South Asia. We heard the other day that Disney has an 80% name recognition in our country, which is good when there are over a billion people in that country!

We saw some nice advertising in our city for a multi-day Disney Holiday Magic Celebration in our town. 

Needless to say, Rebekah was pumped. 

Things looked a little promising when we saw some good quality sets.

And Rebekah got to dress up in her Snow White dress (which, to be frank, she could have done at home).

Then Rebekah got to put on eye liner...

And lipstick that every other little girl in line got to wear. 

Germophobes beware! But we were one of the first in line.

We did get a good chuckle out of Rebekah and her other American friend being the center of attention for so many South Asian families/photographers.

But the climax we waited for--the Story Time--was a man with a Mickey Puppet talking to himself. A few nights later Spiderman came in costume. But the promised appearance by Mickey or his friends was a little bit of a let down. 

Rebekah had fun, which was the most important thing. And it was much cheaper than seeing the actual Mickey Mouse character at Disney World.
