The hardest thing for me was the cannons. Once I realized that I had to move backwards from what I normally would I got much better. The reason I laughed so hard while playing it was because I was so darn bad.

I am going to start in a couple of hours on my meal. But because Scotty works until 7 I have no major stress to get started.
There is something special about Christmas when you have little ones in your home.

So there's a Disney game for the Wii then?? I'm not very good at the game thing.....but we do have the Toy Story Mania for the Wii that's fun to play.

Merry Christmas Ladies! Laurie I am enjoying your trip report and pictures. Did anyone catch the Disney Parks parade this morning? During the last few minutes they talked about this year being a leap year and extra magic for the parks in 2012 to be announced on Dick Clark's New Years Eve show. There was a website mentioned but I missed it. Anyone catch this or TIVO the parade?

Ok, so I just got done watching the Disney Christmas Parades that I DVR'd this morning. I have to say, now that I've seen the parade....that I was surprised to see so much that has nothing to do with the Christmas Fantasy Parade.

The Toy Soldiers are there, but at least the two times I watched it, there wasn't a Lotso Bear in a Dump Truck or Jessie & Bullseye in the Firetruck alongside Woody on the Rocking Horse.

After that, it went off to the Summer parade: Soundsational. Then the float for the princesses was all wrong (have no clue what parade that was from), Phineas & Ferb, Lion King, Mardi Gras........all from ??????

Now I understand, they're doing some filling.....but I was excited to show my family what I got to see & it was all wrong......

About 90 mins into the program where they jump back & forth between Disneyland & WDW.....I finally saw some more Christmas Parade things. The fairies weren't on the frozen pond....this is where Mickey & Minnie are ice skating during the parade & at least for the night time parades I saw....the bakers don't have flour fights. But it was nice to see some of the familiar things I got to experience a couple weeks ago.

One more little note........we don't have those BIG balloons of characters & items that were used during this taping. It reminded me of Macy's & trying to copy that.

Ok, as for the big news.........the way it came across for me was that on Feb. 29th there might be something special......not like a whole year thing. I could be totally wrong & the announcement will be made during Dick Clark's NYE countdown show.....so I guess we'll have to wait & see.

The website for the countdown of the big news is: onemoredisneyday.com

(something about the title of the website also suggested that it might just be a WooHoo for that day)

EDITED: So I just looked at the website.....maybe it has something to do with adding a day for free or something......giving you "one more day"!!

I loved the kids faces when they saw their presents.

The kids were pretty excited & happy with what they got.....even if we didn't do presents.....just the Santa ones. I think this worked out much better anyways.....the twins can only handle two or three new things at once...otherwise they get over stimulated & start freaking out. So breaking up our Christmas I think is going to work out very nicely & could become a tradition....lol

Chapter Thirty Three~~It's a Nightmare!!

Now that our entire group has regathered, it was time to see the Haunted Mansion with the Nightmare Before Christmas overlay that is done for the Halloween & Christmas holidays. I've never seen this & was excited to check it out!!

The outside & the horse-drawn hearse.




Inside the lobby & "elevator".










I wish this would have come out better, but maybe Mike can photoshop the exposure some.



When the doors open, you pass through this hallway heading towards your ride vehicles.





I was actually able to stop & get the change on this picture.....the ones above, the line was somewhat moving me forward.....but then we came to an abrupt stop, so wah lah!!!




And now we're moving again.....




As you make your way to the ride vehicles, this colorful backdrop welcomes you!!





Next installment will be finishing up the Nightmare.

Chapter Thirty Four~~Let's Finish this Nightmare!!

Now that I've stepped into my ride vehicle, we're on our way. I was hoping for better pictures, but have shared the best ones. Maybe Mike's new, fancy camera will do better on these dark rides.







We stalled here for a minute or so, I tried to get a decent picture with the pause.





Jack Skellington & Zero......it looked really good on the camera screen, so was a little sad when I got it home & it wasn't as good as I had thought.





No hitchhiking ghosts today.......



A couple more from the outside......NOS Train Station side.




I hear hot cocoa & a gingerbread cookie calling my name is next!
