Talking There's an App for That! iDisney, July-Aug 2009. New 12/3: DONE!

Hello there! A warm welcome to my readers, new and returning alike. If you followed me over from my pre-trip report, you already know whatís gone into this July-August trip. If you havenít read the pre-trip, well, hereís your chance! The actual trip is about to begin, so youíve got plenty of time to catch up! It's right here: My Life on the DVC Blacklist



But if you just donít want to deal with all that, itís okay. I can break it down quickly: Iím V and Iím taking a 10ish day trip to Disney World with my sweet, 7 year-old son Leo. Weíll be meeting up and spending oodles of time with our very good friends (who we just so happened to have met right here on the DIS!) Itís going to be great!


As for the title of this reportÖ I got me an iPhone not long ago. I love it. I adore it. I keep it with me night and day. I write long-winded sonnets in its name and caress it lovingly as I whisper PreciousÖ our PreciousÖ we loves our PreciousÖ





Okay, itís not that bad. But I do really, really dig my new toy. It does it all! Aside from all-purpose daily functions, itís become quite the theme park touring tool. Iíve tested it out at our local Busch Gardens park, as well as over a long weekend at WDW, and Iíve found a whole host of applications Ė or Apps, in iPhone speak Ė to make vacationing easier and more fun.


THEREíS AN APP FOR THAT!!!




This trip report will feature a new App for each installment, and Iíll start with the first right now: Twitter. I gave Twitter a whirl back in May and had a good time tweeting from The World. I think it was fairly well-received, so Iím doing it again! You can follow me here:

www.twitter.com/Disney_VLo

FYI, I have it set to ďPublicĒ so you donít actually have to join Twitter or become an official Follower to see my tweets.


Iím all packed up and ready to roll in two days; be back soon to continue the report!

Let's see...

You'll be checking the weather. Checking traffic. Checking crowd levels. Taking pictures. Posting pictures. Drunk dialing....

I just saw that Sig from Deadliest Catch will be in Norway Fri-Sun. We missed them last year so I'm hoping we get there. Great show.
