Princess Tiana & Prince Naveen Meet & Greet

I don't know if any of you guys covered this. Princess Tiana & Prince Naveen meet & greet, located in Liberty Square behind the shop that sells Christmas ornaments in the white gazebo. We were taking a shortcut and found them by accident. They had charm and wit & my son really liked them

And I thought I was just buying a phone.

In August I was very hesitant to buy an iPhone because I didn't want to be accessible by email 24/7, but my assistant's smart phone was dying so I bought her and I iPhones. Then one thing led to another.

First I found podcasts including the DIS Unplugged and I found an outlet for my passion for Disney that has been with me for 32 of my 41 years. Then that led me to the boards. Then tonight I stumble upon this thread.

I'm sure everyone has the same story about how your passion for Disney makes you feel somewhat like an outcast. Sure, I love betting football, racing cars, my GSXr, but Disney? Was something wrong? What am I reaching for in my childhood that wasn't satisfied?

Well, it doesn't matter now. As I can see, there are ten's of thousands of us out there. I am passionate about my family, career and Disney! Yeah, that's right, I used the love smile!

Now...can someone call my wife and tell her I'm not the only one? And as Walt said "it all started with a iPhone."

When my wife says a grown man obsessed with Disney, I remind her that Walt was a man. She LOVES it and it shuts her right down.

GM, Dave! You working today or just up early? I'm waiting for the DW to rise and shine so we can hit a diner and then grab groceries. I have to split firewood later this morning and work on an antenna some time today.

Driving to Newark, NJ this morning to drop the in-laws off at Royal Carribean. I hate driving especially up there. Good news is they are not going to be around for Thanksgiving....

Dave, I may have to stop in for a beer on the way home to calm my nerves!!!!

Fed, you are alomst there. Just think how good the turkey will taste this year. I remember a few years (okay maybe more then a few) spending thanksgiving day in Ft. Irwin California at the end of a 1 month training excercise. We were waiting for a flight to take us back to Ft. Polk. While we were waiting they thought that it would be a good idea for us to look for spent shell casing......in the trash dump!

Goofy Jr. 88 - I can only the assume the 88 is for Dale Jr. Here is hoping next year is better then this year.

Okay I am delaying the inevitable...Newark here I come.

You're not the only one. DW and I honeymooned there almost 10 years ago. Now, been going every year for last 5 years and added a second trip as well. DW and others in the family wonder why I want to go to Disney every year for vacation. They just don't get it. Two DDs (7,5) love Disney as well so I have some allies.

In terms of extremely important events, I'd say the only things you're missing are my trip report and the upcoming Cleveland Browns vs. Detroit Lions game. It's difficult to put a price on either one.

Yeah, NJ driving is...challenging. No comment on the 2nd part!

Geez I had not even thought about that!!! Funny thing is that this past summer we got a love note from the IRS that said our 2007 return had a mistake and that we owed them 1400. Uuuugh! We got that just days after booking a Disney cruise.

I'll call your wife, if you'll call mine!
Have you seen the app for the iPhone from touringplans.com? It think it's more of a mobile site, than an app. It's supposedly accessible by more than just the iPhone, but I can't get it to work on my bb Bold. Just wondering if you knew, and maybe what you thought of it.
BTW - the touring plan guys are in a podcast that posts 3 times a week
