I'm guessing it was cold, and that is why Snow White has "fake hands"?


You're on a roll! I'm going to have to get better at staying caught up!

Denise
It was seriously cold or cool the entire 10 days we were there, save the last day (Feb 8). That just so happens to be the day we were inundated with cheerleaders... coincidence? Me thinks not.

Snow white totally had flesh colored gloves on! I don't blame her, as it WAS freezing, but I was a little worried my kids would think she had a skin condition...

I would love to read your plans & read your story. No Pre-TR?

Today is my only son's fourteenth birthday, and his birthday present is to not have a fever for the first time in five days! His temp was 99.7 which, after temps of 101 and 102 sounds GORGEOUS.

Happy birthday, Kyle-o!

(That being said, I woke up with a sore throat and Stasia has a temp of 101.6... Ugh.)

Thank you so much; Kyle's temperature is under 100 for the first time in five days so I'm thrilled at even that much.

I hope you do choose to write a TR; I would love to read it!

I wrote my first PTR for the trip we took in January; it was our gift to our children after my mother passed away. A much needed moment of joy for everyone.

This trip is a much needed trip for our son who is 6. He has struggled all his life with health issues and in February he had a big surgery to help him and it set him way back and he had to learn to walk again and deal with major pain, so we thought why not encourage him to work through the pain at therapy with a trip to wherever he wanted to go. Well as you can see he chose "Mickeys House" and we are off in less than 2 weeks. He still has a hard time walking alot so the stroller will be used for the most part because he said "NO WHEELCHAIR MOM, people will look at me" He has had a hard time with people asking whats wrong, what happened, and me constantly asking do you feel ok, so I figured ok we will do the stroller.

Glad your son is feeling better. Nothing worse than having our children sick

Don't you just love the D40. I love the pictures it takes and the price was right. I got mine a couple years ago and have been pleased. I looked into upgrading before our trip this summer, but instead I bought a new lense (18mm-200mm VR).

I must admit I leave mine on Auto most of the time, but I have been experimenting more with some of the other settings.

Love all the pictures, I love a trip report with lots of pictures, it's almost like going again. And I love all the videos, I especially loved the build-up to EE. It's fun seeing Disney through the eyes of someone who has never experienced it before.

My 13 year old son has that meh attitude as well most of the time, but he loves Disney. He wants to do a Father / Son trip.

Look forward to seeing more.

He says thank you! It'll be another long week, but we'll pull through.

Bless his heart; I hope he has an amazing trip. I know he will- he already sounds like he's in the right frame of mind. PLEASE consider a trip report; yours is one I would love love love to read!

I leave mine on the shutter setting most of the time; I want that quick shutter speed more than just about anything else. With four kids its all about action shots. lol

Is that you, Fairy Godmother?

(Caveat: I'm fighting off a wicked bad head cold today, so forgive me if my post is less than stellar. It's not you, it's me...)

As Mickey and the gang were conquering over the villains on stage, we decided we'd take advantage of everyone else standing around the castle and start exploring the park.



We were headed off for Liberty Square...



When I realized there was a pathway around the side of the castle and there was a crowd of people headed that direction.





I *had* to know where they were going!



Oooh, pretty!



Wait, who is that I see?



Fairy Godmother, is that you?!



Lexi LOVED her, but was pretty freaked out that she was actually HERE!



Tatiana was thrilled to add her signature to the collection.



Stasia was having none of it!





But the Fairy Godmother didn't mind. She knew it wasn't personal.





Coming up next... Will she sit in it?!

I have never seen Fairy Godmother when we've been there. I hope we get to see her this time!

It was really surprising; she said that Lady Tremaine and the Evil Stepsisters were going to be out later in the day, too!
