Getting through Orlando Security at the Airport

English: A TSA officer screens a piece of luggage.

By Amanda C.

I have very rarely given much thought about getting souvenirs through security at the MCO (Orlando International Airport), but as I am going “ OOOOO I’ve got to get one of those!” That one of those is a death star hot potato game. I was describing it at the ball park last night and one of the mom’s said “Good luck getting that through security. It sounds like it looks like a bomb.” I was like woooah hold up! A bomb? No way would I have thought of that. That got me to thinking of what the TSA must see go through the scanners and do they flip out seeing it going through in checked luggage and open your suitcase or do they go ehhh and let it go?
Some of those great souvenirs: From Pirates of the Caribbean: The dagger, scabbard, and ball and chain and the hook. From Star Wars: The Light Saber. From Frontierland: The 3 foot long hunting rifle and pistol. Tomorrowland: Buzz Light years ray gun.
I’m sure Universal and Sea World have some crazy souvenirs as well that would make a normal person go what the heck if it was seen in your luggage. So the question for you readers…. Has the TSA searched your luggage because of the goodies you stashed away?

Loving our Disney Pets

By Frances

Our pets are some of the most vital parts of our daily lives. Their unconditional love is part of today’s month of Love on Mouze Kateerz. Please enjoy pictures of ours and our readers beloved Disney inspired pets.


Please meet Mufasa. He is our ever so loving cat named after the Lion King. We adopted him from our neighbor a couple of months back and he was already named Mufasa so we kept it. He came from a litter of kittens. His brothers and sisters are: Pumba, Simba, Ed, Scar, Nalah & Raffaki.~ Frances

Julie Ann Gus Gus

Please meet Gus Gus – named after Gus in Cinderella. He is a rat terrier and when he was a baby he look like a fat little mouse 🙂 ~ Julie Ann


Please say hello to our cat named Luke Skywalker.  Our son, 7,  picked out the name.  Luke will
turn 2 in April.  I wanted to name him Yoda but I gave into Luke.  We would like to get another
cat and either have Darth or Leia.  ~ Jennifer D.

Here is our “Princess” Belle.  We had lost our kitty in July of 2012 after having him for 16 years.  He was our childrens(10 and 7) first loss of a pet.  They kept asking for a new pet ever since.  My husband and I kept saying maybe in the Spring we would think about it.  In late September Belle started showing up on our deck here and there, then everyday sleeping on our patio chairs.  We started feeding her because the weather was getting cold.  I called the Human Society to see if they could find out if she belonged to someone.  They called me back that afternoon, and she was thrown out by her current family because they didn’t want her.  She is a year and a half, de-clawed and fixed.  Just thrown out because she didn’t fit in there life anymore!!!  She pulled on all of our heartstrings and now is part of our family!!  She is now the Princess of our house and rules the roost!   We love her very much.

I don’t have a Disney dog by name.  We adopted Liam after he was nearly a year old from a New York Humane Society.  He was not named after any Disney characters and seldom even rocks Disney accessories but one Christmas I managed to get him to slip on his Mickey Mouse ears.  He does enjoy watching Disney movies with me, particularly Lady and the Tramp and for some reason he really likes animation styles like Nightmare Before Christmas.  He has enjoyed many toys and treats from my husband and my adventures in the parks including a “Pitch a Stitch” frisbee and Mickey Tire.  I would send pics but those toys have since been destroyed beyond recognition. lol.

Let’s Fight Hunger, Mouzies!


Hey friends! Here at Mouze Kateerz we are joining with some of our favorite bloggers to help raise money for a cause that is close to our hearts and everyone can participate!

Head on over to our Feeding America page for more info and donate whatever you can afford to help us.  We will be joining with our blogging friends for the next two weeks- donations are due by January 30th and we are hoping to raise $1,000 with your help.  $1000 would provide 8,000 meals to those in need thanks to the partnerships Feeding America has with food pantries across the country.  EIGHT THOUSAND! Can you believe it?! Just take a quick minute and think about it and you can probably spare $1.  If you can’t we understand, but due to the recent changes in our economy there are families without the ability to feed themselves and no one deserves to go to bed hungry!

Help Mouze Kateerz, Picturing Disney and our other blogging friends and lets try to end hunger in America, one meal at a time!

A Running Mouze: Update Amanda

By Amanda C.

Second surgery completed and doctor release given so off to the gym I’ve been going with my grumbling 13 year old son. Official weigh in a shuddering 259.4 lbs. I gave the trainer my list of injuries and the crunching noise in my knees the trainer recommended circuit training to strengthen the muscles. Yippy was my thought. I asked about their water aerobics class and the trainer said “ Most of our Silver Sneakers do this program”. After learning that the Silver Sneakers were mainly baby boomers I was IN! My thinking behind being in with the older generation was simple. They have joint issues like me.

So the next night I went in excited about working out in the water, geared up with my leopard printed skirt bathing suit and into the water I went. An hour later I was exhausted, my legs were jelly, but I had made 6 new friends. These ladies work out four nights a week and I learned occasionally on Saturday’s as well. So all in I go! I even tried to get the grumbly 13 year old to go with me to the next class, he shook his head adamantly and said he wasn’t getting into a pool with a bunch of old ladies! I looked at him shocked, because I got included in the old ladies bunch. He quickly amended himself which made me laugh.

I’m a week into the exercising and diet change (cut down on the cola and bread and a few more veggies) and am down 3 lbs. Official weigh in this week was 256.1lbs! The legs are still jelly when I get out of the pool, according to Tina (Water Goddess!) that should only last another week or so. Muscles haven’t seen this much action since I was a junior in college and running around on the football field as a flag flipper! More next week as we are in the week before Thanksgiving and my 38th birthday and the food will be plentiful at my house
