Wow, the iphone! I've got the 4S too and the only thing I ever remember to do is enhance the color if I can. I have got instagram and camwow and some new app whose name I can't remember. We've got a Canon DSLR that is great and we'll take that again, plus an Olympus Mu and the kids have their own little cameras and ipods. I think next time we'll skip taking the Mu and stick with the Apples (plus the DSLR because of the long lens )

I started planning our next trip before I'd even paid for our Dec '13 cruise! I can't do much about it until we're on the Fantasy so I can dummy book an Alaskan cruise in '14 or '15!

I can't wait to go back and read your report from the start uninterrupted. Bring on a work-free and kid-free day

Wonderful, wonderful trip report .

What was your personal highlight? There were so many stunning pics/locations. I think my favorites were the antebellum mansions, although some of that desert scenery s spectacular.

I have to add my thanks too-really enjoyed sharing the trip vicariously with you. It seemed to go so fast! Look forward to future TR wherever you may travel.

Well, being upgraded to club level at the Beach Club and enjoying our first stay in a Disney hotel would has to be way up there!!

Also, New Orleans was just wonderful, soooo different to anything else we've ever seen in the USA. And the Riverwalk at San Antonio really exceeded my expectations, it was just lovely.

I have a serious bucket-list plan to visit every one of the states in the USA. So far we're up to 25 States and the District of Columbia so we still have a long way to go!

And that's on top of plans to visit lots of other places in the world... I'd love to have a Bill Gates style budget for travel . In my dreams!

Actually I seem to have blotted that out..

Seriously though...it IS fun to meet a real DISer in the flesh. If only to convince my DH that I haven't been fantasizing about imaginary friends!
