A Winter Escape to the Enchanted Forest-Jan'13 TR:**5/21 Parting Thoughts/New PTR!
 
Welcome to my trip report and thanks for dropping by!

The first part of this TR includes some of my live reports and pictures that I posted during our trip from January 25th-29th, 2013.
If you would like to skip ahead, you can follow the links on my table of contents below. If you would like to browse through the live report portion, they are posts #19 through #100.

If you haven't been following my previous TRs, welcome and hope you stay for a bit! Here's the Pre-Trip Report for this trip. I also have links to TRs for the last two trips to WDW and Disneyland in my signature For my returning DIS friends, welcome back and thanks for sticking around!

The cast of characters for this trip were myself, DW, DD6, DS3, and DFIL. It was a more abbreviated trip compared to our last one in April. Honestly, I don't think we could ever top that trip in terms of all the things we got to experience including staying at the Poly. But we had another magical trip and I can't wait to start sharing the details with you!

How do you post pics from your iPhone?

You'll need to download two apps for your iPhone. One for DISboards, and one for Photobucket (at least that's the photo site I usually use when I post on DIS).

I can upload pictures to my Photobucket account/album from my phone using the Photobucket app. Once the pictures are uploaded and visible in my album, using the app I can copy the direct link to the picture.

Then I open the DIS app, find my thread, and post the picture (there's an image button from one of the dropdown menus) by pasting the copied link.

Hope that helps!

Thanks I was trying to the other day but the reviews for photo bucket said the last update messed up the app so I didn't try. I will try it out.

Hmmm, I don't think I updated the app in a long time for photobucket, so maybe that's why it's been working better?

I'm along for the ride - but I leave on Saturday so we'll be down there the same time! Taking the Auto Train and arriving on Sunday! Weather looks fabulous - especially after the cold this week! I'm in NoVA as well!

Just my daughter and I - she's my normal traveling companion - 23 and working so this is her first vacation on about 15 months - she's very ready - I keep telling her welcome to the real world!
