Love it! The CMs made sure you used the term "adoption" did they not?

I took that whole "bonding" thing serious. The first 1 I tried was like that just not a good bond, but then the 1 I really wanted (they have different colors and markings) a little boy put back and he worked perfect for me.

The mouth is the hardest but once you get the hang of it, you feel like a ventriloquist.

I'll be there opening day. So, if they are sold out when you get there, I'll sell you one. And I'll give you a 15% DVC discount off the $199 price.

I'm a grown man and I want a banshee.

That I wouldn't worry about too much. For the most part I think Disney goes with the pricing strategy they decide on and sticks with it only edging up gradually over time. They tend to allow the popularity gouging to happen on ebay.

By "gradually" you mean "double or triple the rate of inflation?"
