We are doing okay, just counting down the days until I get to Disney.

We really lucked up in getting a good spot to watch the parade. You should try to get a spot there too. I am sure the little princess would love having the characters so close.

I didn't think to take pictures of the bracelets but you can see a little bit of one in the picture of Lacey above. It's in the one where she's holding out the beaver apron. The bracelet says MGMC on it. The sides are braided and it's really cute.

I love taking pictures at WDW. Well, any place for that matter but I'm even more picture obsessed while in Disney. My family just rolls their eyes at me when I stop to take a picture but they deal with it. Just like they deal with the fact that I have to stop and pee every 5 seconds. Actually, that's an exaggeration but they do laugh at how many times I have to make a pit stop.

I am sooooo looking forward to the Dis Meet!

The store we were looking in was pretty small and it didn't take us long to look at everything in there. I decided to stick my head out and see if the crowds had started to thin any. They had, just a bit:



Next up on our agenda was the Country Bear Jamboree to enjoy a little hand clappin', toe tappin' fun.



A couple of years ago, a lady tripped and fell on me while trying to scoot her way past me in the theater. Her fingernails dug into my legs and I had huge scratches which we called bear claw marks in honor of the Country Bears. I didn't have anything but hand sanitizer to clean the scratches with. Man oh man oh man did that stuff burn! Thankfully, this time we didn't have any incidents like that one.

Soon the show started and I started snapping pictures. Without the flash, of course. Big Al is Lacey's favorite and has been every since our first visit in 1998.



A few more:













We bid the Country Bears goodbye for this trip and started our way over to the raft to Tom Sawyer's Island.

***I know I promised Tom Sawyer Island pictures but I need to stop here. If I don't get busy with my pre-trip report, my vacation will be here and I'll still be on Day 2 of my report.

Those parade pictures are AWESOME!!! I will definitely have to check that area out for parade viewing. We watched the Boo to You Parade at MNSSHP from the Liberty Square area...it was a great spot, and we only had to wait about 20 minutes (we could have waited even less if we'd have realized how low the crowds were).

Ok, I have to admit- I was so excited to see Bernard and Miss Bianca on the Aladdin float!!! I loved them when I was a kid - no kidding, the various members of my extended family took me to the theatre to see it at least five times! (This was before VCRs and movie rentals, of course ). I had the stuffed animals and carried them with me everywhere for a while. Any time I see them, I have to get a little excited!

It's hilarious how your kids got the characters to dance with them! Is it a coincidence that Hunter is wearing a boombox?

Good afternoon Lisa!

Cute Country Bears pics. We went in 2007, but the sound quality was HORRIBLE! We could barely understand what they were saying. I was disappointed because it was the first time for my boys...needless to say they were not impressed and it didn't make the cut for the next trip.

I have only seen it once for the same reason. And when we went, you could hear the clicking of the animatronics' movements better and louder than the sound system. Has it gotten better Lisa?

Great Geppetto shot!
I love parade pictures!
I've been so behind lately. all cought up now. YAY! Well with your TR at least. LOL!

Still working on Skip. I keep doing stuff to try and get a Dec pin.

Here' one I heard to do.. Got to disney site, log in, Then mouse over where it says "My Disney Vacation" (there's a little Mickey suitcase icon) and a little box will pop up. The second item listed in the box says "Itinerary" Then click on the page where it says "Build A New Itinerary" You'll have to name the itinerary and select the dates you want to visit and enter in your travel party info and stuff. It asks, "Do you need accommodations?" If you select "No" it will give you a drop down menu asking you where you're staying. I selected "Non Walt Disney World Resort Hotel"

Supposedly people have done this and then gotten a pin in a few days. Of course not everyone.
