It was very special after planning for so long

My photopass+ package arrived today. I am really enjoying the stock photos - and dreaming of seeing the sights myself

After a moment of shocked silence there was shouts and laughs all round. I then brought out the tub of books I have bought about the destinations and we all sat down and watched the WDW planning DVD. Every time a new character or ride would come on there was giggles bubbling out of both girls (and me!)

They took the books to bed and I could hear Olivia reading out loud to Alexis - and then I heard them laughing and saying how great it all was. Brought a little tear to my eye

It finally feels real, 25 days to go!
Just catching up... What a wonderful way to break the news! Your girls will never forget that

Thanks Ms.Shuttergirl - easily one of the BEST coverages I've seen.

I went last year in Nov and the crowd was NO WAY as busy at that - much easier.

My tips - def - be at the Dwarves by 6pm (ish) I arrived at 6:15 - 6:30pm. Was about 30 from the front; it moved quickly and I was finished in under an hour. When I left (7:20 ish) the queue had become 2 hours long. So watch your crowd levels and do your MUST SEE character first.

Also for parade photos - beware of standing opposite a flood light. I bagged a great spot at the front of the castle. Parade came round and BAM on went a flood light and my photos were washed out.

Queues for rides were really short!! 15 mins tops - it was great!

I'm so bummed about this. The only thing that would cheer me up if they change Whoopi or NPH to my date .

Thanks for the personal info from when you were there. And the floodlight tip is a great one.

I'm going to skip lining up for the dwarves. I will be able to snap a pic of them in the parade and I'd rather just enjoy the rest of the party I think. I do remember you sharing that photo from last year though. If I was going on my own I would so line up.

I am also going to skip the dwarves - not interested enough to wait that long to meet anyone!

My big plans for the
- the parade (I hope we can last long enough to see the second parade)
- the dance parties (especially the one with Woody and Jessie, she is Alexis' favourite character)
- the shows (celebrate the season and a very tomorrow land Christmas)
- photo with Santa
and I just want the time to wander and soak up the atmosphere. Maybe a ride or two, a hot chocolate, some people watching... Happiness

Ms Shuttergirl - NPH would be great!
