I had already altered the floor plan to create a larger entryway with a nice big coat closet for guests (and lets be honest, Bella) so it seemed even more unnecessary.

Over the past few trips to the two Disney Resorts I randomly started collecting Disney Pins.  The pins are kind of like Beanie Babies in that their soul purpose seems to be as a collectible item that’s individual popularity drives up it’s price.  Generally I don’t collect things, but there were a handful of pins that I kept seeing and…
