I’m really glad to see that “A Bug’s Life” got some love and was included.

A bugs life made me the happiest! Is there anyway we can order a first day cover? Will they have them on sale at the resort? I wish I had known about this earlier as I would have switched my work days off! So cool!

No Disney stamps were displayed at the Post Office, so I asked. These are the ones I purchased. The clerk even had to log them into inventory before I was able to buy them. The Flick one is my favorite.

Just to clarify, the Disney rep. said Dot was at the ceremony and it was Princess Atta. Dot is on the stamp.

I just not too long ago got the first set of Pixar stamps “Send a Hello.” Now you are going to force me to get these too :D . My favorite of all the Disney stamps were “The Art of Disney Romance.” They were so pretty. I wish I got more at the time but they must have been pretty popular because they were the only ones sold out when I went back to get more.
