I also LOVE that parade, I could hear the music in my head while looking at your pictures, thanks for the memories!

I love the parade pictures. They bring back great memories of past visit to Magic Kingdom. I miss the blue fairy leading the parade, I guess Tink is more Disney now.

As always great pictures of Connor and Chelsea, and their various expressions.

I found it amusing that Chelsea wanted a balloon and saw a cute boy in a couple of hours; poor, poor mom - the little girl is leaving!

Connor's poses are great, but not as terrific as his sayings!

Looks like a great night!

PS I have to correct my statement earlier. Apparently, my girls have had Mickey Mouse bars...I relived my trip last night by reading my trip report and there it was in print--not pictures though, so maybe they had Itzakadoozie Ice Pops instead.

Yay Jackie!! You got to see your beloved parade. I'm so happy for you! Did the family love it as much as you do?

The Triple Mountain Whammy rocks! And watching Wishes while eating a Dole Whip is seriously the best idea ever. What an awesome night you all had!!!

I'm thinking there should be a Triple Mountain Whammy t-shirt and pin.

I like Main Street Electrical Parade, and one can't help put love Elliott, but I'm more of a Spectro fan, too, like Mary. When I hear 'On this magic night....' start up, I just get an incredible feeling of happiness. It will be interesting to see what other parades lie ahead for us and which ones our kids and grandkids end up developing a fondness for.


I know seeing the parade was a highlight for you, and I think back to when you thought you were not going to get a chance to see it. I'm glad that 'magic night' happened for you and your family.

Maybe Chelsea should have gone over and talked to Cute Boy.

I am having my share of withdrawals myself. I "see" or "hear" disney references every day.
I was advising a potential new hire on where to take her drug test and it was across town. So as I say ..."but it is all the way across town" I hear myself wanting to say " But I got you a real fast car" Which the one of the last lines in the RnR preshow before they send you out to the alley for the ride queue.

Driving home I saw a car with the license plate &B3OND. Then I look up and across the trunk is the make of the car.... INFINITY

INFINITY & BEYOND

I tried to take a picture of it but another car cut in front of me.

I see Hidden Mickey's and Disney references everywhere!!! I guess it will just have to keep my busy since I do not have a trip planned for anytime soon.<sniff sniff>

I'm hopping on board! I've lurked on your other reports, but now I'm ready to join the fun!

I love the pictures of the MSEP. It so reminds me of my childhood, because when we first used to go to the world, that was the only parade we would watch.

Love your pics of the Electric Parade. I have never seen it but looking forward to it as it is listed on the schedule in May. I hate to say it but kinda sick of Spectro & was hoping they would still be showing EP in May.

Connor & his "moth" pic

The pic of Chelsea & her balloon is very cute.

Ah riding Splash, EP & fireworks then a Dole Whip...What a great night!!

Yeah for riding all the mountains and double yeah for catching the parade. I haven't seen it since I was in High School and went for the very first time. You got some really great pictures. Love the Dole Whip break. It's so nice to know that Chelsea still has some little girl in her and not afraid to let it out. A balloon is such a nice treat. Danielle likes balloons but from afar. She hates the loud sound when they pop so she keeps her distance. A mylar balloon would be okay, they just slowly leak.

Rope Drop or bust!

Back in July, I said I would be just fine without a holiday trip. We'd have the nice summer trip, a quick little October trip, and then we'd be so busy through the winter, we wouldn't think about it again until March.

Yeah...so not right!
The more I see Christmas decoration pictures people are already showing, I'm dying to get in the car and drive ten hours south just to walk through DTD. I could be okay not even going into a park.

I think.


Maybe I'd have to go to Animal Kingdom.

See?

It's a problem.

I'm already eating my PBJ sandwiches in the dark to save enough money to go in March, and I have the nerve to think about going at Christmas.

It is most ridiculous.

But it is what it is.
I long (yearn could be a better word) to see those decorations and just feel that special Disney Christmas atmosphere.

I need some medication.

Jackie I just love love those parade photos! Just like others I agree, it takes you right back!!! I am really excited to see your DHS day, but really enjoyed your Magical evening at the Magical Kingdom! So much fun. Great last view of the castle!!!

I really had a great time reliving that parade with you. it was fun!!! I have that ring tone on my phone -- my DH says I am crazy. I say I like what I like

The necklace was too cute! We have never gotten a balloon, but each time I see they CMs walking around with them, I keep thinking HOW festive they are!!!!

ON another note.. Oh I know Starwars weekend would be IT, but I have to sit on my hands for now!

Can't wait to see your next summer day of fun!

Oh MeMom! I feel your pain! DH just said this morning that with all the Christmas stuff out now, he misses Christmas at Disney and wants to go again! I have to go eat Ramen in the dark so I can save up.

I wish it were only at 10 hour drive. It would be tough to keep us from going three or four times a year! That's nothing for us!

I need to find a ticker for our March trip - maybe that will make me feel better. Flower and Garden will be fun. Of course, Christmas is coming so much sooner... SIGH.

Jackie, are you planning on going for SWW in May or June?
I'm considering surprising my nephew with a trip over Memorial Day weekend. Is that usually a SWW?
