So glad she got her camera back. (I am really far behind).
Le Cellier is good but I feel over-rated.
I saw lots of kids doing Kim Possible when we were there. Do adults do it?
Nice souvenirs.
Love Dinoland. Actually I love AK.
I love walking the trails. Too bad the tigers were sleeping.
We had Yak & Yeti too, oh wait need to save it for my tr. LOL
Disgusting she brushed her there at the table.
Love the Star Wars stuff for birthday.
Great animal shots when u returned back.
Great safari pics. That darn lion is always sleeping when I go.
The meerkat is adorable. Sadly they were not our when we went. I loved "Meerkat manor".
The sugar cane mojito looked good.
I have never seen the opening show at MK or any park.
I want a haircut there.
CP is such great place for breakfast.
Good for the CM saying something to the tour group.
30 minute wait for HM? I have seen 90 minutes. SCARY
MMMM, Mickey ice cream bar.
Nice MSEP pics. Wait till to read about our time seeing it.
I am all caught up. Great tr and pics.

I'm considering surprising my nephew with a trip over Memorial Day weekend. Is that usually a SWW?
I am maybe going then too.

Looks like there will be quite a few DISers there. Hmmm, I think a GG slushie meet might be in order.

Fun, fun update with wonderful pictures of the ELP. I must confess that I did not get to see it in September, so I really enjoyed your pictures. Its such a festive parade.

to your Splash Mountain ride pic. I didn't even realize you were sitting there. But I went back and looked and saw the tip of your head.

Chelsea looks so pleased with your balloon. Love her t-shirt.

Wonderful update! Sounds like a succesful evening for everyone! I love the last picture of Chelsea with her balloon. Everything is clear, but the balloon is a bit blurry - like it was just an imagination!

I get chills looking at the pictures of the parade! Thank you so much for posting them. Capping the evening off with a Dole Whip sounds good to me!

Btw, Chelsea looks so cute in that tank top!

I'm so happy you were able to relive your childhood.

Did you buy the awesome Eliott pin they were selling at Disney? I thought it was a very pretty pin!

great MK night....I just loved seeing your MSEP pix...I don't recall seeing this as a child the one time we went to WDW, I know some "light" parade was going on at DL when we were leaving when we went that when I was a teen...so I feel next Sunday night will be my first MSEP experience. I love Spectro, so I am very EXCITED. thanks for sharing

Great update Jackie!!!!!!!
I love Chelsea's balloon!!! I wanted to buy one so bad when I was there in April, but I couldn't justify spending the money! Next trip for sure! I am so totally craving a dole whip now! I tried one for the first time back in April and I think i'm in love! As for the main street electrical parade, I've never seen it in person I love the music though! I get to hear it every day when I listen to my daily dose of the Dis Radio! My mom made fun of me when we went on Splash Mountain and I sang along! I can't help it, it's my favorite ride!!! When we saw the fireworks we were sitting at Pinnochio's Village Haus in that upper porch part! It was a great seat! I was able to set my camera up on my tripod and set it on the table and I got some amazing shots! I totally reccomend that to everyone who needs a good viewing spot! I was watching the parade at mk when I pointed out a cute guy to my mom and her word's were "God, can you ever NOT point out cute guys?" And we proceeded to laugh until we almost cried! Thanks for the update! Oh and if you were wondering who friended you on facebook, it was me!

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.


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.

If I ever get through my Oct trip the New Year's trip is next so hang in there but all I can provide is pictures.
I am trying to figure a way to get back to WDW but I have yet to convince myself ( much less people around me ) that it must be done.

We shall survive, I am not sure how but we will. It will make the next holiday trip that much better.

What a perfectly magical night in MK! I love the ELP! We saw it at DL the last year it ran, and I have the VHS tape - I love that music! My favorites are the snails and butterflies! Connor is so entertaining with his different "faces." Glad he conquered the mountains!!

I love Chelsea's choice of balloon! So classic! I loved getting DGS the same balloon I had bought his Daddy 19 years before!
