And when I get back, you're even closer!

I'm really not sure. I tried getting to the website that hosts them and got a 403 forbidden error, so I think the problem lies within the host, not the Dis. I just went ahead and made new tickers from MickeyPath because I love having a ticker, and I didn't like the DisTickers or MagicalKingdoms ones.

Woohoo, magic kingdom day 2! Never have done the CoP, did the new HoP last trip and me and Chloe really enjoyed it, even more so than the American Adventure. Never saw it before the Obama refurb though.

Sad I lost my ticker too!

CoP is nice if you need to get out of the heat for a bit, and (according to my old manager) HoP is actually the coldest building at MK because of all the animatronics in that one small area. Not to get political, but I kept wanting to throw things at the G.W.Bush animatronic during his speech... Shutting up now.

I just made new ones from MickeyPath. If they figure out what the problem was, I'll change my 2011 one, but I'm not sure about the one for October. I may leave it like that.

I made a new one, reluctantly. I liked the Christmas one you have, but I don't like how when you get under a month it counts days instead of weeks. So I used one from magical kingdoms...not my favorite, but whatever, it works! Changed my avatar too, I was getting bored!

I guess the reason I didn't like the MagicalKingdoms ones was because they're not bright? I dunno. I like your new avatar! I don't think I'm going to change mine from Pooh, unless I put up an Eeyore one

So MyVacationCountdown finally came back up. I was a geek, and I saved my old ticker coding, so I still had them available. As I like them better than the ones I had from MickeyPath, I switched back to them

So my ghostie is now almost halfway there

I have been to Disneyland several times, I used to live in California, and in my mind there is no comparison as far as size goes. It does have some cool stuff that WDW doesn't have like the Indiana Jones ride, and I like it because it can be done in 2 days, 1 for each park. I also LOVE the Disneyland Hotel, but it's super pricey. I would always choose WDW, just for the longer vacation and more stuff, though I did insist on taking DS when he was 1 month old because we were moving and I wanted some pics of him there...

I do plan to eventually go there, I just have no idea when. Next year's vacation is mostly taken up by the November trip. But yeah, someday

So, inspired by people posting old photos at WDW, I dug through my old Photobucket account and found these few photos from my first CP in 2004. It was also my first visit. I only have a few digital and some printed photos at home, as I've had two laptops die on me since 2004. So, here we are


Me and Pooh at DAK


Eeyore was blowing a raspberry at me


Me and Tigger


I didn't even know he was around, I just ran into him


Notice the headphones around my neck. I was wandering solo back then, too.


At the time, I worked in housekeeping at the Boardwalk. Sometimes, they'd deploy me and one or both of my fellow CP's to other resorts. This was from the week that they'd sent us to the All-Stars. I wasn't really "earning my ears", I just was for that resort I'd also forgotten my name tag

I have some photos from my last CP, so if anyone wants to see those, let me know
