– Large 6 inch Glitter Princess Virtual Run Medal –

Most people have probably not seen Cinderella’s Castle from my unique perspective. I have spent a great deal of time in the Magic Kingdom’s moat that surrounds the Princess quarters. No complaints. It is very nice, as moats go. The moat has over three million gallons of fresh water and is six feet deep at the bridge. Above the moat, I get the view of Cinderella’s Castle, which has 18 spires,13 gargoyles and is the most photographed structure in the world. I started out as a tadpole and grew quickly into a frog. Growing up in Disney World has its privileges. I had a role in the Little Mermaid, during the song, Kiss the Girl. I was one of the frogs on the paddle. But I, of course, had greater aspirations and dreamed of being human and marrying a Princess. It is what all frogs want. Especially growing up in Disney World where you see royalty every day.

During my youth I learned the only way to be human, is to kiss a Princess or Princess-In-Training. Disney World was full of them. Magic Kingdom gets about 18.5 million visitors a year. That is about 9.25 million Princesses in various stages of training. As a frog, looking for a Princess in Disney World, we have – as a species – attempted a multitude of strategies. During these ambitious quests for a Princess, we follow rules. At any Disney property, there are strict rules for amphibian kissing, as you would expect.

Rule Number One: Those frogs in the market for a Princess must wear appropriate attire. If a frog is successful in obtaining a Princess kiss, reaching instant human status, Disney Security has made it very clear they do not want people running around, lacking apparel, especially in front of Dumbo or Peter Pan’s Flight. To combat this problem, the frogs have developed and marketed a line of successful stretchable superhero clothing, designed by Edna Mode herself. This clothing line has been used by such famous superheroes as: The Incredibles, Mr. Fantastic and the Hulk.

Rule Number Two: Kissing a Princess must be consensual or spontaneous in nature. It is rare that a Disney Princess will find time or the desire to kiss a bunch of frogs. And when a Princess does find time for a kiss, a line of eager frogs quickly forms. Then the toads find out, get jealous and jump in line too. This is followed by snakes and lizards and then law enforcement, which creates pandemonium. Not a pretty sight. This is why we developed plans for the spontaneous kiss.

Here are a few unsuccessful strategies at obtaining a spontaneous kiss and why we developed the “Dreams into Plans” medal.

Requesting CPR does not work. One poor amphibian pretended to need the “breath of life.” He laid down next to the entrance of Frontier Land. His tongue was flopped out to the side, and we painted him pale green. A group of girls walking over the bridge gave a big “eeewwh”, kicking him to the side of the curb. He was sweep up immediately with some popcorn and left over parade confetti by a janitorial cast member, dressed in white, never to be seen again.

Space Mountain. One unlucky frog set up early in the morning before Space Mountain opened. He waited above the tracks. The ride started and he was hidden in the darkness with stars whirling about. Very romantic. He waited for an appropriate Princess to be riding in the front rocket. With precise timing, the frog launched himself into the lips of the front female Princess traveling at warp speed. Like a face attachment in Aliens, he landed a kiss. The Princess freaked out from the wet slimy alien attached to her face in the darkness. Peeling the frog from her face, the Princess threw him over the rail. Cast members found a green, moist, half-frog half-human later that day, splattered at the bottom of the ride, 60 feet below. At least he was smiling. No mention of that incident in the Disney World newsletter.

It’s a “Small World”, especially if you are a frog. This frog’s plan involved sitting with a fancy hat on top of the purple Hippopotamus. The Hippo was close to the boats, which means close to the Princesses in the “It’s A Small World” ride. We got him in, set him up and left for the castle. The plan would have worked, except the ride being closed for maintenance. The doors closed and the song played on and on – “its a small world after all…”, for hours and hours. We made a small world rescue once the doors opened again. He was never the same after that, crazy as a march hare.

From the unsuccessful attempts, we learned, at great cost, but we learned. I eventually married a Princess, but never forgot my humble beginnings. That is another story to be told later. When visiting Disney World, I always go down to the moat and say hello.

It was when we met a real Princess at Magic Kingdom, that the idea of our medal came to me. The Princess was glowing in the dark hallway from pixie dust and a trail of fireflies. She politely introduced herself, as we stood in line at Mickey’s Philharmagic. She wore a tiara and explained her name was Sophia, spelled the correct way, S-o-p-h-i-a, the way real princesses do. She informed us that Disney spells it wrong, S-o-f-i-a, but was quite understanding about it all.

From our conversation, we determined that this young Princess was not only pretty, but she was smart and witty. No wonder she glowed. When Princess Sophia walked about in Magic Kingdom I saw frogs turning into real-life humans whenever she was near or her pixie dust drifted.

With the help of Princess Sophia and her pixie dust, we made this “Dreams into Plans” medal magical. Here is the way the magic works: if you move forward, turning “can’ts into cans,” making “dreams into plans,” the medal magically lets off a Princess aura in a 13.1 mile radius. The mystical nuclear glitter bomb of each medal, transforms frogs into real-life human beings of the male variety. All you have to do is take a Princess step forward.

We added the magical properties in this medal because men, as a species, are in desperate need of your help. This should come as no surprise. But as a spokesperson for frogs and males everywhere, I can tell you we need every advantage possible. Please buy a medal and save a frog. Or just plan on kissing a bunch of toads. The frogs thank you. And so does the toad at Virtual Run World.

      Michelle, our Dreams Into Plans medal is in production and will be available in December. We anticipate shipping the second week of December, but there are no guarantees. We ship as soon as the new medals arrive. There is a notification on the medal’s shop page that indicates the estimated shipping when in production, so that when a customer goes to ‘Add to Cart’, that they are aware of the timeframe. These custom medals can take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks in production. We have many medals that are in stock and ready to ship. The only two in production right now are Dreams Into Plans and Whole New World 😉 Let us know if you have any other questions. Please wish your friend Good Luck for us 🙂 Thank you for your support!

    As you know by now, I am like a super-fan of this website. I was showing your site to a Friend of mine who is a runner (she runs like 7 miles a day) and she was head over heels for this medal as it is loaded with lots of sparkle……rhinestones, right? If so, I hope it comes out before Christmas, so I can get this as a Christmas present for her. The quote on it is awesome too. One of my other Friends was over and she was talking about something or another and I told her she needed to turn her can’ts into cans and dreams into plans……so catchy……lol.
