And now for things! We couldn't get the Photopass photogs to take pictures without at least one of us in them, so I cropped people out.

Well, tried to, at least.

Having fun:

Wow, what nice photopass pictures! We never bothered with photopass, but your pictures are so nice we might just have to! I was going to say which ones I liked best, but then I looked again and they're all so nice I would have just listed them all! And the borders are so fun!
So far...2 trips to Disneyland, 12 trips to WDW!

Hoping to take a trip this year, but also contemplating buying DVC, which would involve skipping this year and using that money for the downpayment. We'll see where the year takes us.

Thanks! The photopass photogs do a nice job, usually. And when the pictures are boring or ordinary, you can throw on a border or have Tinkerbell floating, and it makes it fun, ha ha.

I would NEVER even consider photopass if I were just going to buy one or two 5x7s, the price of those just peeves me. But the CD, where you get the right to print them as many times as you want, that feels right to me. Sure, it's 59.95 or 99.95 or 124.95 (buy AT the parks, no editing ability...pre-purchase...buy after the fact, respectively), which sounds crazy, but it gives you the ability to OWN the pictures, not just have one print.

I probably won't do it for every trip we take, but the biggies, most likely.

I'm still amazed that my September pictures (that I have on CD from a photopass share, with Halloweentime borders) were still on that card...

He was just NOT into Belle at all, poor princess.

Oh, by the way, if you guys go to the Faire, they seem to be very relaxed there. Don't be a stressball or you'll be tsk tsked by the princesses. I was very aware of that looooong line behind me, and I wanted Eamon to just get with the program and meet the princesses like he'd been asking to, but instead he was hemming and hawing with Belle. She kept asking him to sit on her dress, and he just would NOT do it. And he was having a hard time handing over his autograph book, too.

****He came over earlier and saw the post I made about the dress, and even though he doesn't appear to be reading (I just started reading one day when I was 2, so I believe he could do it too, but he's not being obvious about it if he can read), he said "I didn't want to sit on her dress", which is pretty much what I wrote above the picture. Reading, or just describing the situation? Who knows. ****

I was urging him to hurry and meet her, blah blah blah, trying to think of those behind (they only send one family through at a time, or at least that's how they did it while we were there), and Belle basically told me to chill out.

He was totally fine with Pocahontas (she didn't ask him to do anything weird like sit on her dress!) so that moved along quickly and happily.

Then we got to Princess Minnie, and we had his autograph book open for her. When he handed it towards her, he closed it, and I thought I was being helpful by nicely intercepting it and finding the page again. She got a 'tude with me, showing me that she could open it (she closed it and opened it again) and didn't need help. Well, excuuuuuuuuse me!

I wasn't really into the attitude from those two. But maybe they were misreading MY attitude as annoying, rather than attempting to be helpful and kind. It's happened before.

But take my advice and just be Zen while in there.
