It seems that when I give out FP I won't use to people, they don't know what to do with them. I even saw someone put it in the garbage.

Nice pixie dust! I gave away some FP this year and one family was completely flabbergasted by the idea...I had to convince them that they could take them for free and then I explained what the ride was like, how to get it..they spoke little English, so it was a bit of a struggle to communicate, but eventually they were all smiles when they realized they were going to skip the long line at Kilimanjaro Safari

And from the tone of your *dun dun dunnn* I have to guess that Henry lost his little Mickey figurine. Well, I can only hope that he found it again, or maybe some other kid found it and it made their day too!

Wow, I love that Epcot ball picture in your last update! You take some great pics! What kind of DSLR camera do you use? Do you use any extra lenses?

I am contemplating getting a DSLR camera sometime in the future but not sure what kind.

I'm catching up again...
First, congrats on the picture possibly being chosen! Can't wait to hear more! I didn't realize they were already taking pictures for that yet. Its a cute pic.. no wonder they want it!


Also, nice pixie dust! We didn't much on our last trip, but my first trip with my in-laws we were sprinkled about once an hour.. during Disney's Year of a Million Wishes campaign. We each got 2 pairs of the fancy cloudy ears, we got fast passes and got to ride RnR twice in a row! That was a GREAT trip.. and my first on property.. and my first with DH.

Keep on keepin on with the report!

I love Spaceship Earth too, and I'm so glad Henry enjoys it! I'm AMAZED at how much he has retained from it. One time when we rode (I think it might have been earlier in this same trip?) he asked questions the entireeeeeeee time about it, so I explained everything to him, the best I could, in "toddler speak", and now he tells Joe and I what the ride is about!

Ahhhhhh, I wonder if that is it!! That would make sense!!!

It's so good! We love it! It's easy to forget about though, unless you are already in that area. Might be good for dinner on a break from DHS while hopping to Epcot or something....I'll try to remember this tidbit.

Aw, thats so nice someone gave some fastpasses for soarin, we did that in Jan only for Space Mountain (my older DD got a headache and didn't want to ride)


I seen Jens plug for her new TR, so I thought I'd throw out that I also have started my TR from our surprise trip last month. Shameless, but efective!
It's warm again here in NYC too! I just love it! But 80s and 90s in the upper midwest this time of year is almost unheard of! ENJOY IT!!!!

Plug away, plug away! I'll be right over!!!!

Yum! The cheeseburger looks delish!! I'm so hungry but I'm trying to get my school work finished and i'm too lazy to cook.

I have never noticed those lights before but I can imagine how annoying they may be.

I'm going to send you a message on FB for your address because I don't have it.

Moving on....

I'm confused, I thought Henry loved Test Track. I remember you mentioning this, interesting.

I'm worried that little Mickey dude is going to go buh-bye.....
That just stinks that you can't get your favorite onion rings!!!! Could you possibly enlist a friend to do a stealth onion ring mission?

And wouldn't it be fabulous if we could just simply order up our favorite foods from the World?

Yep...Henry did love Test Track in September 2010. He was pumped to ride it here in Feb/March 2011 as well, but after our first ride on it, he started to refuse... At this point in the trip, I was baffled by it (and still kinda am!).

Okay I'm glad I'm not the only one...back in June I noticed those lights and was like say WHAT?!? I never noticed those before...so either you and I are the most oblivious people in the world (and in my case that might be quite true) or those are new!! I'm going to go with the latter LOL!
You are the second person to tell me they just noticed them this year! GOOD!!!!! They are so weird, aren't they? I like the "glitter" affect during Illuminations, but otherwise they are sooooo stinkin' bright.

However, there is still a good chance I've been completely oblivious.

It always seems the perfect timing that a delicious picture on the DIS pops up, doesn't it?! After reading all these responses about the onion rings, guess what I had for dinner???

So cool that someone gave you Soarin' fastpasses! It's almost as much fun to give them away as it is to get them.
Wow, you are GOOD. Yes, he is! This could totally turn into a "Find Mickey do" game!

And that person gave us FIVE! So we were able to give 2 away still! It was extra pixie dust!

Yay for someone giving you Soarin fastpasses. The same thing actually happened to us when we were in Disneyland. We wouldn't have been able to ride otherwise (not surprisingly there was a long line there and this was before it was built at Epcot). It was then that we fell in love with the ride. Sorry for that random story...
You do! It's really, really good! I still mean to get the No Way Jose (almost did in August, but our waitress was sloooooooooow and Henry was antsy). I hope to go there just for ice cream one time so I'm not so full!

I like the random story! And I can't wait to go to Disneyland.

Mmmm Beaches and Cream! I love that place! I went to Friendly's today (had to go before they all disappear). I agree though, you always leave that place stuffed! We went one night and got out when the pool was closing. Got to chat with all the lifeguards. Lots of fun!

Hey, a tech question here! My sister just got an i-phone for work, and would like to download free but useful apps for our November trip. We are only spending one day at Epcot. What would you recommend?

Those onion rings look delish. I have decided to change a few of my December ADRs now that I can't do a split DxDP and I am reconsidering the Beach Club, if for no other reason than I want to try those O-rings!

Great update!
I love how you busted out the popcorn for the anticipated drama!

I don't think I'm up to speed with your December trip and why you cannot do the split DxDDP - I'm so far behind on the DIS. But regardless, if you end up at the BC, go for the rings! YUM!

My 3 yo lost a Star Wars Mickey on our Aug. trip, on Dumbo I think. Cried about it EVERYDAY the rest of the trip and still talks about it today. I hope Henry's Mickey didn't meet the same fate....
Okay, that's four of us now! Those lights have to be new!

That so sad about your DS and his Star Wars Mickey! I hope you are able to find a replacement or something as a surprise!

Right there with you on the lights in WS. We noticed them in May and someone, I think Jenjolt asked a CM who basically looked at her like she was nuts and said they had always been there. . I am not convinced. I am almost positive they weren't there in Oct 2010 or else they have changed in some other way to make them more noticeable.

Hurrah for Soarin FP's.

And great news on H's picture making the short list. So adorable!!
I am so not convinced after so many of us just noticing them for the first time this year! Either that or they put in LED's like BerrysGirl mentioned. Something has to be different!!

So exciting that they might choose Henry's adorable picture. Max saw me looking at the pictures and he said, "Hey...wait...who is that?" So I told him and he said, "He has long hair, just like me. Does he have toys?" I said, "probably." He then said, "Let's visit him now." Too cute.

Love Beaches and Cream. Its on my list of food at Disney that actually lived up to the hype. We had a great meal there in July, I just wish it were bigger.
that is a definite bonus about late February! I was surprised at how much was already out when we arrived this trip.

That is SOOOOOO cute about Max! And yep, he does have long hair! We chopped it before the summer, but it's back to being longer-the way we liked it. And yes, he does have toys. LOL! We'd love to visit with you guys someday. Maybe if you ever adventure into the City for a day trip we can meet up!
