Thanks for the pictures last night Stopher. That was a pretty cool way to close out the thread, and I have never seen many of the shots that you posted from Disneyland. I never realized that there is so much there that we don't have in WDW.

And a Happy B'day to AJRitz!

Yes, it was with Baloo... and yeah, she does resemble me quite a bit. The most of all my children, poor child. Looking back at pictures from my youth - that is all I see - my DD's face - except she got my DW's dark hair.

Christopher, nice job last night! Loved all the old school pics!

And now that 'we' proved a point that the DDC could be closed in a month, can we go back to 'normal' posting?




HEY DON.....

When you ask for our own board, use these stats as exhibit #1!

Love what you've done with the place!

You're welcome Mike. Yes, there truly are so many differences between the two resorts. I could have kept going and going... but thankfully didn't need to. I've said it many times before and it bears repeating... Disneyland is definitely worthwhile - and every Disney fan should make it out there at least once in their lifetime.

I decided not to change my name. It will remain KTME for the forseeable future. I had a great new name picked out after my favorite disney character...oh well.

Thanks Tim, it was fun, in a demented sort of way!

I'm good with going back to a slower pace myself, however, I think others kind of got used to running through nearly 9 pages per day... it seems a lot of us don't really take to working throughout the day, since we can and do "check" (and post) throughout the day either on the computer or phone (as I did most of the afternoon yesterday).

BUT yes - we leave on Monday for Florida, and will be gone a week, or almost a week... so yeah, I will be on a LOT LESS next week - so have you all. Now that I have my "win" - I don't feel the need to close down this one.

TR update... yeah... about that... Hoping to get one done today.. but since SOME people want to go and spend all night posting cool pictures like they have nothing better to do with their time... might be a little late on that one

I certainly hope this thread moves a little slower... I'm not sure I can keep up with this pace But I'll have my laptop with me and will be able to open the new thread if needed.
