I was a bit annoyed that they weren't displayed on the map since I went through FantasyLand to get to ToonTown, I wasn't that far from the Dwarves. By the time I got to the Dwarves the line was rediculous. I even checked after the second parade since it looked like 125,000,000 people left after the Fireworks, and another 250,000,000 people left after the parade I thought it would be empty. No such luck.
I didn't even realize they weren't on the map! I knew from the DIS they were going to be in the stroller area right at 7pm.

That explains why the guy behind George in line was so impressed we were there early. While the rest of us were off on Fantasyland rides, he'd asked George how he knew the Dwarfs would be there and George told him I was on "a board or something". When I got back and said it was the DIS boards the guy nodded knowingly and said he was with Tour Guide Mike.

George thought he was Mike.

Mickey Mom.... I am so excited I started reading your report and instantly recognized your family.

I have not read past your first post so not sure if you have told the story yet but my family was on the stairs in Canada with you for Illuminations when the inconsiderate person decided to put his child on his shoulders blocking the view for all of us. I love what your hubby did it was priceless but I will not let the cat out of the bag and allow you to save that for your story.

This is the first time in the last 3 years that I have been reading these boards that I saw someone's trip report that I saw in the parks

And we are all from Canada.

Nah, they weren't annoying. Honestly I couldn't figure out at first why I was hearing an 'echo' - that's why I was distracted. It did actually make me listen a bit more.

I was the bigger guy standing in front of the stroller who thanked you for saying something to him. Not sure if you remember me or not. My wife was sitting on the stairs in front of the stroller and my oldest was trying his best not to fall asleep beside her.

I do remember! I told George earlier today about your post and he laughed with the memory. Small world eh?

Yay! I love POTC!!! I still can't believe that it took us four trips before we rode it!

Your Splash Mountain picture turned out great!!!! So cool that you were able to find Mr. Toad at the HM. Hmmm....I still haven't found him yet.

Wow! Beautiful pic of Dumbo, the Carousel and the Castle!! It would make a great screensaver!!

So glad that you got to meet the seven dwarfs. DH would be so jealous! He's been wanting to meet them since our first trip!! Love the picture!!!

If I don't get a chance to pop back in.... Merry Christmas!!!!

That Splash Mountain picture is definately another favorite and you so have to meet the Dwarfs, they were a lot of fun.

Merry Christmas to you too Angie!! All the best for the New Year!

Basically the lines reversed but I didn't notice any other changes.
I heard that the entrance had changed, it's a shame that its not like the Disneyland one, they have Ariel and Lilo & Stitch in the different countries in their one.
