I know! I was kind of of two minds about the whole weekend for various reasons and when I saw Ariel and the Castle I immediately went
The hand towel sign amused me especially as it was the last thing I expected to find in a 4 star hotel

155 days til disney today! We're getting there

Some of the narrators were announced for Candlelight Processional today as well...
http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...-processional/
For date I was planning we'll have Michael W. Smith Never heard of him but then only one I've heard of on that list is Whoopi Goldberg. I don't think it really makes a difference to us anyway though. Except in my head I want Candlelight processional read by a male rather than a female. I don't know why

Lovin the trip report. I too have had a crappy year and have three therapy trips coming!

Aug. 17-20 D23 in Anaheim with hubby
Sept. 29-Oct. 3 WDW 40/MNSSHP/F&W
Nov. 9-14 MVMCP/Epilepsy awareness month (15 years as an Epileptic)

Looove the towel! On my travels(travel writer) I have seen Disney touches before. I came across a set of glasses in a shop in Eureka Springs with the mouse ears on the state of Missouri. (State specific)

Thanks for posting this, I hadn't seen that yet. We have been thinking about whether or not we want to do CP when we go, but I really don't care to see Whoopi, and I do know who Michael W. Smith is, but I'm not going to be too upset if we don't go. Now if Neil Patrick Harris or Trace Adkins were narrating while we were there, I think I'd just about have to see CP.

No problem!
I think with CP we'll see it once then possibly never again mainly because we might never be in Florida at this time of year again who knows!
I saw last year they had Steven Curtis Chapman as one of the narrators.. would have loved that. Found his story through you tube with the death of his baby and it's so so sad but I love Cinderella and some of his other stuff mostly Cinderella though.

Therapy trips are the best. I couldn't believe how much good stuff happened the week before the disney trip last year that's why the minute things started to go crazy this year I went to the travel agents

The Killarney pics are beautiful! Looks like you had a great weekend!!

Michael W. Smith is a Christian song artist. I love his music!! I have been wanting to see him narrate the last few years, but I have missed him every time. Hopefully this year I will get a chance to see him narrate.

Yeah weekend was good fun!

I'm happy to have a male narrator even if I don't know who it is.. I will look him up to learn more about him though

Micheal W Smith is awesome! One of my favorite Christian artists! I honestly don't think I could sit and listen to Whoopi narrate it after all her and Joy's antiChristian remarks and foul language. I so would have loved to hear Trace Atkins...we get Marlee Martin or should I say Jack narrating! Don't get me wrong I love her as an actress and she was awesome on Celebrity Apprentice...I just don't care for her being the narrator. I am hoping that I will be pleasantly surprised because CP is high on my list of things to do!

Christmas around the world is very cool at Epcot! It was very confusing to my son about Papa Noel, St. Nicholas, and Santa Clause. The stories are interesting at each country, but they may feel a little long-winded for small children. The story tellers pose for pictures after the stories.

All the story tellers look amazing from pics I've seen

Disney is fantastic therapy, I hope things get better for you soon. You will like Pop, it is fun, colorful, and the CM's are great. We have stayed there several times and will be there Dec. 6th - 14th.
