My Disney Time - Week 29: Cinderella! Cinderella!
Cinderella is one of Disney's most famous Princess. Everyone knows the story and there have been so many remakes, versions, and comparisons to the story and character of Cinderella. "If the shoe fits..." takes on a happy-ever-after meaning in the Cinderella. Glass slippers, Prince Charming and fairy godmothers are all associated with the Cinderella storyline. It's a classic of all the Disney fairytales.
One of the reasons I love this particular watch because we see Cinderella in her rags outfit. It's before the fairy godmother comes a long for the makeover. The little bluebird flies around the watch as a second-hand. The singing and seamstress mice are also on the character watch as they present Cinderella with the beautiful pink dress they created. You could see the anticipation and hopefulness on her face as she now has a dress to wear to the ball.
This was a Cast Member exclusive watch that was made only available at Company D. I can't remember the exact year purchased but I am guessing it was in the early 1990s. Collectible Disney watches were just getting popular. It was a very small edition and I have 498 of 500.
I have a special post for next week that relates to My Disney time series. Can't wait to share.
