Clint and Cheryl G from Orlando, Florida

We left our house bright and early on October 1, 2016 to get to Disney Springs to meet Jim Shore and celebrate the launch of his new Hatbox Ghost figurine from the Haunted Mansion.
We live about 20 minutes away from Walt Disney World and my wife was 9 months pregnant at the time and could have gone into labor any day. We got to Disney Springs bright and early to head to the Art of Disney Springs store to meet Jim Shore and get in line to get the Hatbox Ghost figure, which was being released on that day. Only, we got to the Disney Springs parking garage and the wife stepped one foot outside of the van and stopped, looked at me and said get back in the car. Her water had broke! So long story short, we welcomed our beautiful baby girl Charlotte into the world later that day! Which surprisingly enough was Magic Kingdom’s 45th anniversary!
We later came back in November with our new baby Charlotte and finally got our Hatbox Ghost figure and got to meet Jim Shore! We told him all about the first attempt at getting our Hatbox Ghost figure and meeting him and he got a good laugh out of it. Jim was nice enough to let us pose for a few photos and signed my Hatbox Ghost figure!

Thanks Jim!
