Not much really to update but we did decide on 1900 park fare for breakfast on Wednesday. We met up with the Mad Hatter one day in the World Showcase and the kids got a real kick out of him, so we figured why not. I hope everyone had a great holiday season and had a great new year!

17 days baby!!!!

Im not excited at all.

I'm sure you'll love 1900PF breakfast! They have the omelet station that is good. Just watch out for the Hatter- I think he is crazier in the morning!!!

I sure hope so too!! But the way I see it any day in Disney is a better day than at home.

Thanks,

We were thinking about dinner, but breakfast fits in our schedule better. We are counting on him being a blast.

It always works that way, what you need to do is add more tickers to your siggie like stopher, then you always have one coming around the corner.

This will be my last entry as a PTR, I will continue will the festivities when I get back.
On a side note, this is my first trip with more than a basic camera. I will be taking two lenses and my tripod with me this trip. I really want to take some night photography, fireworks and dark rides. We will be hanging around at the parks on night EMH days so I can get some shooting in. This is the first trip that I am actually planning some shots that I would like to get. Normally, I just shoot what is in front of me. I am by no means a photograher, I have really just started taking this up as a hobby in the last year. So this should be fun.

Thanks for following along on my PTR and hope you stick around for the TR.

See ya real soon......
