Sorry for the lateness of this report. After Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, all I could do was collapse into bed.

Yesterday was a day of gains of losses. By that I mean that everyplace I turned, I wound up losing something....cigarettes, lighters, house keys....along with the key to the safe, room card, annual passport. I swear that I'm losing my mind as well, but fortunately I seem to have found that. Everything except the cigarettes and lighter were found. I think I lost those somewhere on the Kali River Ride. No big loss. As some of you may know, I've been trying to quit smoking since September....mixed results, obviously.

Yesterday was spent in the Animal Kingdom for a while. We rode most of the major rides and saw the animals....and that's when I started losing things. We had gift certificates for the Rainforest Café, and the service and food were good. They would cash one of the certificates, since the bill was $24.97 or something like that....so I asked the waiter to wait until we left, and then give the other certificate to a large family party that was sitting near us. We watched from the side, and the look on the grandfather's face when he was presented the certificate was priceless. It made me feel like I helped make someone's day.

Came back to the resort for a break, and then went to MVMCP. What a sea of people! Once we were ferried over to the Magic Kingdom the crowd spread out a bit, so it wasn't so claustrophobic. When I found that the event was sold out, I really expected long lines at the attractions, but with the exception of Winnie and Buzz, the lines were all walk-ons. We did Splash, the Country Bear Christmas Special, Big Thunder....and did Buzz later on the Fast Pass system. We lined up on Main Street to watch the Christmas fireworks, which featured Santa Goofy near the top of the castle, and Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Tinkerbell flying through the air. The fireworks were gorgeous. The finale featured fireworks all over the perimeter of the park.

We then caught Micky's The Night Before Christmas Show. Santa Goofy was all over the park, apparently. He was in that show...on top of the castle, and in the Parade. He's a very busy guy!

We tried to hook up with fellow DIS members at the hub for the 2nd showing of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parade, but the place was mobbed. Sorry I missed all of you! The parade was lavish, even by Disney standards, with tin soldiers, Santa Goofy (again!), the princesses, Mickey and Minnie, and the REAL Santa Claus! Snow flew all over Main Street.

Tomorrow.....Backstage Magic Tour

Expenses:

MVMCP: Around $65.00
Food: Around $15.00

Maybe losing the cigarettes and lighter were a sing, Steve. ;)

That was so nice of you to give that certificate to the other family. What a sweet guy. <IMG WIDTH="15" HEIGHT="15" SRC="/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif" alt="red face">

MVMCP sound like lots of fun. I wish I could see the snow on Main Street. I'd probably be standing in the middle of the street crying. :rolleyes:

Thanks for sharing your trip with us, Steve.

Lisa :)
