New Camera? Sounds like a perfect excuse... (Sept 2011) (Completed...Rushed the end)

New Camera? Sounds like a perfect excuse for another Disney trip! (Sept 2011)

Welcome to the Trip Report. Here at Cafeen Industries, we are constantly working on improving our lengthy walls of text punctuated with pictures. As such, we have created this Trip Report just for you, our loyal customers.

After much note taking (which we may have rushed through, and then stopped after a few days...), we feel that the content included is accurate, potentially humorous, possibly enlightening, and most likely, way too wordy.

Please sit back, relax, get back up, do the hokey pokey, turn yourself around, that's what it's all about, sit back down, grab a drink (for which, you'll likely have to stand back up, walk, and sit back down again), put your feet up, keep arms, legs, and other appendages inside the trip report at some times, and please, no flash photography. Well, really, you can do all the flash photography you want, but taking flash photos of a computer screen doesn't come out very well. Trust me, I've done it.

Description
So, originally, I was just going to continue the PTR of the same name as my TR. I've decided that I don't like that format. Mainly because it requires the hassle of me PMing a moderator to move the PTR thread, and then new readers have to go though all 3 pages of that thread to get to the TR. That's too much hassle.

What's in the box?
For your Trip Report reading enjoyment, there will be the usual stories, day to day activities, tangents, food porn, as well as the added bonus of going into detail on some of my better photos. Since this TR is likely to carry around 1,500 photos, I'm not going to go into detail on them all, but I will for some of the ones where I (or you) feel it necessary, interesting, entertaining, or just if I feel like typing more words.

A special note about the photographs - 28 May 2012
You may notice that some of the early photos in the TR (before Post #62 or 63, one of those) have borders while some have the little white tag in the corner. When I restarted this TR, I decided to go through all my trip photos and reprocess. As such, I decided that some should be cut from the collection. These did not get reexported and were left with the little white tag. The reprocessed photos will all have the black (and better looking) border around them. In all, I cut roughly 500 photos from the collection, most of which were either too similar to others, or simply not fit for sharing. Of course, you won't miss those, since you never saw them in the first place!

If you'd like any shooting or processing details on any of the photos, just let me know. Now, I'm, by far, not an expert on either end of the process, but I'll be more than happy to let you know what I did with them .
