Well, we did not get Grandstand again, we got Carosel. Still good since it is the 2nd bus stop and still has plenty of room for the wheelchair. We have covered a lot of ground in the six days we have been here. According to my DH (who is still at home) we have had quite a bit of rain and are expecting some snow possibly. I heard from another friend from home tonight and she told me there had been a facebook post of snow in Campbell (our town) tonight. When we were here in '09 I missed Texas' first snow storm, looks like my luck is holding up.

We are. We got to meet an Imagineer friend of ours today for a few minutes. He is working on the Fantasyland expansion. Spent the bulk of today at MK and ended it with dinner with Mickey and the gang at Chef Mickey's.

I Book He Pays: Got you a special picture of Mickey at dinner tonight. Will post soon.

So far I have only take 900+ pictures in 6 days.
Hope everyone has a good week.

We're here!

Got a great villa. It is a one bedroom dedicated. Didn't know there was such a thing. We are on the 5th floor, the first room when you head left out of the elevator. 5517. We have the vaulted ceilings and the porch with the little roof over it, separate porches for the bedroom and the living room. It is a solid wood wall though, no slates on the porch railing. Still, I love it!

Tomorrow we volunteer at Give Kids the World. Not sure what we are doing later in the afternoon yet. It's fun just to have NOTHING scheduled to do, too!

I'm actually excited! This is our first trip there so I"m up early to make sure I know exactly how to get to GKTW and to make sure we are on time. We are running the train that transports families inside the village. We didn't need any special drivers license status for it so I can't imagine it is too difficult to do. I guess we'll see soon!

It is supposed to be a beautiful day here in sunny Florida.

Thanks! It's just a point and shoot Sony Cybershot. I'm struggling with the various settings. Usually I just try to get the subject somewhere in the picture and then fix it up with Photoshop Elements software. But I don't have that on my laptop so you guys will just have to take them "raw".

A few more pix from the World...

Thought you might enjoy the BWV decorations even though this is a VWL thread.

Lobby decorations...










As Bobbi and I agreed on, BWV does a great job in decorating for the holidays!

And we hit the Candlelight Processional last night. I took a few bad pictures, but the show itself was incredible and moving...



And the narrator was Edward James Olmos, who was excellent and emotional. He also repeated part of the narration in Spanish, which sounded great in his wonderful voice...





Afterwards we watched Illuminations. The additional Holiday part at the end was great, with the song "Let There Be Peace On Earth" playing amidst bursts of fireworks.

Stitch's bakery is an addition! Now we know what he does with what he cooks! Can't wait to visit BWV, that's our NYE destination. This Friday, we arrive at VWL!

I love your comments and your pictures, Granny! DH and I will be at the CP on Friday! It's a must do for us, ever since we found out about it! That was in 2001.

Granny - more wonderful pictures! Thank you!!

Trish - glad you're enjoying your ornament. I haven't been able to find an ornament holder yet so mine is still not out.

Just placed an order for a 2nd owners locker. I think it is aptly named. Stuff I Can't Cram Into My 1st Locker. And it's so true!

2 wks from today!

Hope everyone that is there now is having a blast!

I love those Ded 1Br's up there too! We had 5524 in Nov so we got off the elevator, went left and then the first hallway right and were right there. It was definitely a different feel to the room (in a very good way) with the vaulted ceilings and we too had balconies off of both the living and bedroom areas unlike the last 1BR we stayed in at VWL. Solid railings too but those don't both me as long as there's enough room on them.

Love all the great pictures Granny!! Once again I'm so wishing we were down there now. We saw CP with Edward James Olmos in 2007 or 2008. I read it was the first time he started adding sections in Spanish. It was a nice touch and he remains one of the favorite narrators we have had the joy to listen to.

Love it!!

Everytime I sit on ours to close it I wonder if we need a "Can't cram anymore in" locker!!
