My daughter is obsessed with programs, she has quite a collection now. We always get the program, such a great keepsake.

I agree! I never take photos during theatre shows of any kind but my camera lives on me when we travel, and they wouldn't let me in with it!

I think I better give you the heads-up then. Stay away from my current TR for a week or so....the next update is likely to cause offence.



So....no point in letting you know that the next update is likely to be up sometime later today.

Lol...it doesn't bother or offend me if someone else does it (so long as their flash doesn't go off!). I just find it hard to enjoy the show if I'm concentrating on taking photos.

Well it's our last night of holidays - by this time tomorrow we will be on our flight back to Oz.

We went and saw Mary Poppins tonight - what an amazing end to an amazing holiday

Thanks to everyone on the boards (especially this thread) for their support and advice - this holiday would not have been what it was without you! this place really is such a friendly and helpful spot, and now I can offer advice as well as ask for it :rofl:

See you all on the flip side!

Travel safe.

Well the first few days of trip report are on the blog

http://oztoworld.blogspot.com.au/

I am having a little trouble with the photos (you will notice one of Liv eating pizza has a stripe of darker image running through it) and now when I try to upload more photos it is getting worse. So I am giving up for the night and will try again tomorrow. At least I have made a start

Welcome home Dabecs, how are you coping with the settling back in?

Care to post your trip highlights/lowlights/and inbetween?

We are over a week into our WDW stay and having so much fun. The weather has been PERFECT - going for 27 today but no humidity. We've been to all the parks and have found the crowds to be low (making sure to visit the lowest crowd park each day). Tonight we're off the Mickey's Christmas Party which we're all excited about. I have been able to blog every day if you're interested in hearing/seeing more about each day.

LOL - just noticed my ticker has restarted for next year... wish we were coming back...

The weather sounds perfect. I've been looking at the forecast for when we get there on the 9th and it's still looking 25ish. That's the way to tour WDW I say, no humidity .

Good to hear you haven't been hitting many crowds, that must feel like heaven.

Off to check out your blog.
