Do you love Disney? Do you love Vinylmation? Do you find yourself wanting to bring Disney merchandise home when you’re not even in the parks? Well, then this new service is just for you! One of my great friends, John Saccheri, saw the need and started GET MY MAGIC (

John, a fellow Disney Vinylmation lover, saw people were willing to pay well beyond the retail value of the new Vinyls being released. With the recent release of the Dreamfinder/Figment vinyl set, he saw people on Ebay selling the item (which retails for $74.95) for $300 for presale.  He knew that by living so close to the World, he could help! And so Get My Magic began!

While Vinylmations are the bulk of what John feels he’ll be obtaining for people, that’s not all he’ll be helping with! For a small fee, John will go and get the item and send it straight to your home!

So how does it work? Simply, go to and go to the Order My Magic Now tab on the left-hand side. Submit the form, making sure that you answer the questions to the best of your ability (what the item is, where you saw it, how much, etc). You will then receive a quote from Paypal, with the fee added in along with Payment Instructions. The fee will range anywhere from $25-50, depending on the complexity of finding the item (also factored in is possibility of having to wait in line, limited availability, other orders in the area, etc). Then your package arrives via UPS or USPS with delivery confirmation.

What happens if John can’t get the item? Well, simple! He’ll refund you the money! He can make no guarantee that the item will be available, but should that happen, no problem!

Go check it out! And bring the magic home!

Also, if you are part of the NDP Community (, simply enter your NDP# in the Coupon Code section and get a 10% discount on the fee!

Earlier this year, a new website was launched for lovers of Disney collectibles, small and large, common and rare. This unique site,, was just what was needed! Collect the Mouse is different in the fact that it is not selling Disney collectibles. This site is solely for people who love all things Disney and want to either display photos of their collections, view photos of other Disney collections or both! 

Scott Nadeau and his wife came up with this wonderful idea and launched the site in May. Scott, a graphic 

Disney Room by Christine


designer living in Pennsylvania, has a huge love for Disney and Disney collections. He doesn’t have a huge collection himself, but he has always loved looking at other’s collections. Once they came up with the idea, they had to find pictures of collections! Scott (@collecTM) reached out via his Twitter network to gather photos. The wonderful Disney community had an overwhelming response. He was able to post many photos from his Twitter friends. 

John Stamos' Dumbo Ride Vehicle


While he was getting started, he was trying to find some unique items. He had heard that John Stamos had a Dumbo ride vehicle displayed at his house. Proving the power of Twitter, Scott reached out to John inquiring about the possibility of receiving a photo of the ride vehicle. Within a few hours, Scott received a tweet back with the photo! You will find the picture of the Dumbo ride vehicle on the front page of the site. You’ll notice that it says submitted by “John S.”. Scott is not out to promote himself or others. You have the option of putting your first name and last initial, twitter name or anonymouse on the site. 

If you have a photo of a collection or an item you would simply like to share, you can submit the photo via the site. There are categories

for park memorabilia, housewares, clothing, movie merchandise, toys & games, and Disney rooms. Here are some tips for submitting your photos:  

  • Light is your friend, use it well!
  • If you have your collection under glass either remove the items you wish to photograph or turn off your flash.
  • Having a good background for your items is key. For instance, if your item is black, try to shoot the item with a light colored  background.
  • When shooting a small item, use the macro setting on your camera. This will reduce blur.
  • If you are planning to shoot “Your Disney Room” please make sure any personal items are removed before shooting.
  • Horizontal images work best. Your image may be cropped or reduced to fit a standard horizontal space.
  • Like what you see? Head over to Add your own pictures, buy some Collect the Mouse merchandise or just enjoy browsing the awesome Disney collections from others! You can also ‘Like” Collect the Mouse on Facebook and follow them on Twitter
