Thank you so much for the link, Flitterific! I am at the parks today actually, and may go around to the various restaurants just to take pictures of the desserts.

BE's Holiday Photos - New Orleans Square decorations

NOS has to be at the very top of my 'favorites' list as far as the look and feel during the rest of the year, but once you add the holiday decorations it just sparkles as far as I'm concerned!! Just beautiful. Here are some of the photos I took during my pre-Christmas trip. I hope to get more when I go back after Christmas and for New Years.

We are back! Had a fantastic time, but WOW, it was crowded! We did rope drop each morning and that really helped. I'll post some pictures later today.

I love that you took so many! This is my favorite, I think, it's kind of a 1920s flapper style.

We are all set to leave in a couple of hours. The drive is only about 2 hours so I'm shooting for being there around 1:00pm and hoping the room will be ready, if not no big whoop we'll just go eat lunch in the park.

Hit the pool while you're waiting. We spent a lot of time at the pool this weekend. We got there by noon and didn't get the text message our room was ready until 3:35.

We'll be there this afternoon, I am SOOOO excited for the party tonight! I hate that I have things to do today and can't be there now.

Thank you!! The ones from NOS were with the DSLR. And I'm getting a new lens for Christmas so I'm excited to go back and get more after Christmas.

We'll be there the 19th through the 23rd...crossing our fingers for decent crowds! We've been to WDW Christmas '07 and '08 but never to DL for Christmas - we're so excited to see all of the differences!

One of my favorite things about NOS is the differences in all of the decorations. It really shows Disney's attention to detail -- the could have just put up two miles of the same garland and 18 of the same lamppost masks, but each is unique and every store looks like the "owners" decorated it for the holidays to match their storefront.

Still my favorite (but I love them all):

So we got back last night. We mainly went all day Saturday and a little Sunday morning.
I have to say we were in shorts and short sleeves once the fog burned off Saturday and Sunday there wasn't even a reason to put long pants on in the morning! I hope Sherry doesn't melt as I know she prefers the cold. The crowds were ok in the morning but you could tell by afternoon it was going to be crazy. That is when we tell ourselves, "Let's just get to what we can and not stress about the rest." The beauty of being an AP and about 5 hours drive away.
We got a Mickey Bucket (well 2) right in the hub. Looked to be plenty of them but the price went up to $11. Shame on Disney They did have a deal in one store I saw to buy the bucket there and get a ticket to have it filled with popcorn at a cart later. Did anyone else have a problem getting the lids to stay on?
I have a few pictures but my camera told me the battery was full and then poof after only about 20 pictures or so it said it was too low to take any more. Silly me for thinking DH had packed the charger and vis versa! We had been tossing around the idea of getting our DS his own camera so we gave him an early Christmas Present. Thank you CostCo! So most of these are his pictures and the first and last are mine.
First is the reason we stay on property for Magic Mornings


The fog lifted within about 10 minutes or so.


We waited in line for Candy Canes so we were kind of stuck on Main St until we got our tickets. But that is when my son got antsy and I asked if he wanted to take pictures. Here are a few of his, some Christmas and some not




DS is now saying he wants to take a picture of me with the characters!

He spotted Santa




My submission for the Wreath Quest!

Hope you all have or had a wonderful time!
Sue
