Great report!

The pictures are wonderful!

I have to say though it is weird to see my creations in your pictures but very cool nonetheless.

As for me I can't wait - just a few more days until our visit to the World!

Liz,

I am so jealous!!! You'll have a wonderful time. Aubre is counting down, sadly to her ending date. She's excited to be coming home, but not excited to be leaving Disney. She just got her schedule for next week, she works the 31st til 1am and then the 1st at 9am!!! She's was online complaining to me, but I think just to vent. She's been very fortunate to have had great schedules, so this isn't a big deal.

Chloe works til 1:30 am on NYE but doesn't go in til 12:15 on the 1st so that isn't too bad.

CHloe is excited to see us all but is really glad to be extending and I doubt she will ever come home for any length of time willingly -- she really likes it there.

Welcome aboard Scott. We had a lot of fun doing the GF photo shoot. I am the picture taker in the family, so I don't really get in many pics (nor do I like too) but this was good, so there is proof I was there, lol

I see you'll be back in the World real soon. Can't wait to read all about your trip (I was following along earlier in the pre-trip stage, but stopped all my emails when we went away back in October and never got caught up). I'll have to stop by again.

We were there at the same time! (I don't know why it amazes me to keep running across people that were there when we were, it's not like we had the parks to ourselves! )

What beautiful pictures at the GF, I didn't even know you could do that! (something else to plan for our next trip!)

I am really enjoying reading along.

Merry Christmas to you and your whole family!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I know what you mean though, it amazes me all the reports I'm reading about those that were there when we were. I wish we all walked around with a big signs... I'm a Diser.

I found out about the GF Photo thing on here (of course where else would you find anything Disney out).

I wish you and your famiy a very Merry Christmas also.

After our wonderful time at the Grand Floridian we headed back to the TTC to get our car and head back to All Star Music. The kids took a swim and we tried to relax for a short time before going to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party!!!!


As we rode the monorail to the TTC, this was the site in front of MK. Now, I ask, why is it that at Halloween for MNSSHP was there Mickey pumpkins and fall banners and lovely fall colors everywhere? Now it’s Christmas and you would never know by this shot…


When we got back to MK for MVMCP we got this shot. Look closely… do you see something wrong with this shot???


Our photographer needs a tripod or needs to learn how to hold the camera straight.


Here’s a better shot

Once we got our wristbands, this is what we saw!!! Yea, we are really here…


We walked up Main Street. I couldn’t believe how crowded it was. We did get up closer to the castle and got this shot. Thanks to the nice borders you can choose, I was able to crop some lady who wouldn’t move out of our picture (it was a nice pic but better if she wasn’t in it).


We then headed over towards Tomorrowland. We stopped by for a photo with the castle in the background.


First up was a trip on Space Mountain. I could not believe there was NO line at all. It said a five minute wait, but by the time we got to the entrance, it was walk right on. The kids went back on for a second ride. When they came it, is was time to head over towards Fantasyland for some dinner. I wanted those Figaro fries from Pinocchio’s house!!! I’ve been looking forward to them since our trip in August.

While we were eating, the Wishes fireworks were going off. When we came out, the castle was beautiful.


Sorry, this is taking a lot longer than I had planned, so I’ll update more tomorrow.
