I'm with everyone else. With or without the hat, your firework pictures are just incredible! The colors of the fireworks and castle are spectacular!

I do love the freedom that digital photography provides over film (although I was dragged kicking and screaming to digital). You can snap away and ask questions later, only limited by battery life and SD card space.

Hope your mom is feeling better. Back pain is a pain in the butt! Sending healing thoughts her way.

Wow Pat, you find a lot of TRs to hang out! And no, I'm not stalking you!!!

Good to see you adding to this TR also! Some really good pictures and it looks like you ladies were having a great time. :
All three of us had a great time! It was actually a surprise to Cynthia and I how much we got to hang out with Pat. If she hadn't left we she did (stupid work) we would have definitely been a threesome through the whole trip!

Glad you are enjoying the trip so far. I have to say it really was one of my best trips ever because everything just felt so spontaneous. I loved that!

Well, obviously I didn't notice that hat at the time I was taking the pictures or I know I would have moved somewhere, anywhere....... Glad you like the pix. I am sure that Cynthia and Pat both have some good ones to add. I know Cynthia got some spectacular ones on her phone.

Just you wait - my all time best EVER HM picture was taken on my last night. So you have a little waiting to do!

It was definitely a fun idea. I could never think of anything to top that. Plus it was an easy costume to wear. It wasn't super hot or annoying. OK - well, maybe the wig was a little annoying.

Isn't it cool how the headless horseman really looks like a ghost. Perfect. Mine just looks like a coal man!

I think they are props and I think they move. But I really don't remember seeing them the first time we went during a Halloween party. That's what is cool to me. Either I never noticed them with everything else going on or they are actually new additions.

Still, your fireworks/castle photos were great!
It really wasn't a high profile hat, but for some reason it showed up in a lot of my pictures. Enough to really annoy me. But I swear I barely noticed it at the time. Glad you like the pix.

I think its part script and part ad lib. I love that lady. I wish they had her there everynight. I guess that would be too much to ask, huh?

The KISS costumes were great - even more amazing when I look at the pictures at the level of detail. Almost on the line for a Disney party, but still super cool.

I think you and Pat were too my right, so I'm hopin you guys avoided the hat!

We were all starving. And, if I'm not mistaken, I think they did offer some type of sandwich up till 5pm, but we were really late for that. Thank goodness for Pecos Bill!!!!!

I totally agree. I absolutely LOVE the parade and the fireworks. They are awesome. So glad you like the pictures! Thanks for the compliment!

Thanks! And by all means - start that October TR! I love reliving the party. I actually don't remember all the pictures I take until I repost them. It's so fun to see them again! I think that's an awesome pattern - really perfect. I think you are on to something!

I heard about the horse falling and I'm actually surprised that doesn't happen more. It looks dangerous. Cynthia did a great job capturing the ghost of the headless horseman!

I can't even imagine taking a fraction of that many photos pre digital. I never even liked to take pictures back than because I always felt like every picture that didn't turn out was a waste of money. And 36 shots per roll? What? I can tak that many pictures in about 10 minutes. Glad you like the photos!

Why, yes, I do believe that was tinkerbell hanging out with KISS. I guess that was their attempt to make their costumes more Disney friendly.

And you don't want me to get a cramp in my hand from all that photo posting! So glad you like the pictures. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out. We really lucked out with a great viewing spot.

Amen! If it wasn't for digital I probably never would have gotten into photography. I just feel like the applications are limitless. Edit. Redit. It's all so creative to me.

Thanks Dee. She is really uncomfortable. I spent the last two nights there and now she is going to my brothers. I just wish she could get out of spasm, but she's stubborn and she doesn't like to try a lot of meds or non-medication interventions.

Thanks and I know. I just hope she is able to pull through this and it isn't masking a more serious problem. Thanks for the good thoughts!

Despite "the hat", your firework pictures are outstanding as always.

I can't get over that guy with the shoes (I'm assuming it's a guy).

You got some pretty good shots at the Haunted Mansion as well.

I can't wait to see if you make it for the party the rest of the night.

Thanks! That castle was just amazing and we had such a good view with lots of lighting. It made it impossible not to take a ton of pictures.

Great photos of the villains show and hallowishes!! I love them. My husband is a HUGE Kiss fan, and he would probably be upset to know that I made him dress up as Captain Hook when we went to MNSSHP and others are allowed to dress up as band members

Great Hallowishes photos!! But I can see where that hat was pretty annoying. You still got some pretty amazing shots though, so don't be too upset about that darn hat.

Sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she decided to go get checked out!
