D is for Disney and Ducks

I'm not sayin' for sure but I think the Hurricanes have been influenced by the Disney encampment upstate. You see, this is an Ibis. Please note the downturned elongated bill, beady little eyes and glossy feathers. This will be important in just a moment.

Then, Disney World opened for business just outside of Orlando.  Strange things began to occur.
The start:  my older sister became obsessed with anything Disney.
The middle: time passes (imagine calendar pages ripped through fifty years) filled with
annual multiple pilgrimages to DW
The end: the celebration of 50 years together.
See the happy couple(s)!
 Not a Cake Boss challenge cake, but full of meaning and deliciousness, nevertheless.

Legend has it that the original Ibis mascot was too frightening.
Disney World firmly ensconced mid-state.
People want a friendlier mascot.
They came up with Sebastian, this.....

I'm sorry... this... this DUCK! (Looking a lot like the Donald, if you don't mind my sayin'... and, that's what it is...a duck, not an Ibis) I'm just sayin'
