There's never enough vacation time
I'm always thinking about it
I can't imagine being in it alone

Ditto. I think DCA was a pretty much an epic failure this year. Was it fun? Yes. Was it magical? Heck no.

We just got home from a wonderful Christmastime trip. I'm glad we had Tues-Thurs at the park because it started getting busy yesterday and it was really busy today. I'm happy to be home but it was sad walking out of the gates this afternoon.

We loved the parade and were able to see it Thursday night. So fun! I really loved the little snowmen. Poor planning on our part led to us getting to see the fireworks only in passing. It was a bummer but I'm not crushed. We enjoyed the castle lighting and the snow.

All in all it was a great trip. The kids had fun trading pins, experiencing a character breakfast, and seeing Santa. They also tried some new rides and loved them. I really enjoyed being there with them.

Jill

I don't know what's wrong with me...I adored DCA more this year than any other year. The Christmas decorations in Paradise Pier were lovely and that area of the park at night is SO much like old Coney Island postcards, I could imagine I was stepping back in time. I even got to where I even loved those walls for some reason…but I love construction and the idea of them making the park better, plus they were colorful. I don't know. I really loved it!

I got to see a little show in front of IASW today. The CM said it was new this year, so since this is my first time at DLR for Christmastime I didn't know. Anyway, the show features four (4) CM's in Toy Soldier outfits. They march out by the little Pretzel stand where the parade usually starts. The banner says "Santa's Toy Shoppe". It is really a cute show. I think it lasted about 10-12 minutes. These guys are really good. They ad lib, and the drumline sequence reminds me of the beginning of the Soundsational Parade. I am going to try and tape it tomorrow. They show it several times a day. Stay tuned. I am going to see if I can post some of the pictures I took.

Did you post the time lapse of World of Color? I thought I read you said something about this but never got to view it.

Read it and loved it. You and your wife (?) are absolutely adorable. You didn't happen to go on the Holiday Tour, did you?

Leaving for Disneyland in 2.5 days, so my excitement is at an all-time high. I sort of don't even know what to do with myself right now.

Well I leave bright and early tomorrow morning for my one day whirlwind trip to DL. This is my first time to visit during the Holidays and unfortunately it's just for the day. I'm staying onsite for the first time at PPH and attending the Disney Institute Leadership Conference on Wednesday. We will be going on a "backstage" tour during the conference...I'm really looking forward to that. All day Tuesday will be spent at the parks. Thank you to everyone for sharing your pictures, you have certainly gotten me excited. I'll be sure to post about my trip when I return.

That won't be done for a while. We leave for Walt Disney World on Wednesday morning, so I have a lot on my plate between now and then!

Yes, that's my wife, Sarah. We did do the Holiday Time tour.

Constant Disney trips and a gorgeous wife? You're a lucky man.

I know that you'll likely write about the Holiday Time tour in your trip report, but any brief words about it? I'm taking it on Friday afternoon.

Two more days! Woot. Now we're off to the orthopedic surgeon to see if my daughter needs to have surgery on her (very) broken arm.
