Being a taxi & running errands is more tiring than if you worked an 8 hr day. I didn't know there was a difference in the memory cards but Mike did & said that's what he'd be getting me.....he so smart!!

I ran errands for over 8 hours. And none of it was for me. Although I did get myself a nice new wallet. I was in search of a tank top for Scotty's costume. Plus the supplies. I don't know if you saw my fb status but he needs a costume for two races he is doing. He is going to be Richard Simmons, This should be fun.


It's nice that Mike knows that stuff.

So the guy at the camera store recommends a class 6 or higher card. And, he threw in an 8MB class 6 card "free". Remeber your camera cannot take picture number 2 until pic 1 has written. My new camera can take upto 6 pics/sec and can also shoot in RAW format (RAW files are huge files since nothing has been removed or compressed) so write speed is key. Nice feature on my new camera is 2 SD card slots, so I can use the second for overflow or 1 for RAW and 1 for JPEG. Still learning how to use it (only have 119 days, 9:15 to go B4 trip)

I have to really think about what I want for the trip! And I have to check with the budget for the tour.


I love that you used antenna toppers and keychains on that small tree....I LOVE keychains, and I always want to get toppers but don't trust my fellow man enough to put them on an antenna. Great idea!

Think of the fun pictures you get practicing.

You still have time to figure out your priorities Molly.......Since I've never gone over the holidays, I want to soak in as much as possible. I love rides, but it's not a priority this trip. I'm doing the tour so I do get on the 2 holiday overlays.

I still use the antenna toppers on the van & luckily have not had any problems with them......disappearing (knocking on wood). I thought the tree was a great way to display them....in fact I left it up & it's still decorated in my room..... What can I say....I love Disney & I love Christmas!!! My room doesn't look like an adult/married couple's room....it looks like a kid room with big plushes, street signs & Mickey & Cinderella stuff all over. It makes me happy when I go in the bedroom!!

I would like to do the tour at some point in the future, but I don't think this is the year for me to do it. It's going to be too hectic of a trip - I can tell that already - and I think that throwing the tour in there will be too much for me this time around. I've already seen the parade enough times to where I think I can stand to skip it this year - and yet, I know I'm going to get stuck seeing it with my friend's family because their son wants to see it.

As for IASW Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday - I never miss those on any holiday trip, but I just get on IASWH in the morning when it opens and there is no line. And then I get on HMH right after. The only thing that my other friends and I keep missing is the Storybook Land boat ride (there are teeny tiny Christmas decorations on the cottages and villages). It never seems to be open during Magic Mornings and when it does open, the line builds rapidly.

For you, however, if you want a kind of overview of the holidays, along with the cookie, the fudge sample, the parade seats, souvenir cup and collectible pin and all that, I think the tour would be ideal. So I hope the other Diva joins you for it if Molly doesn't do the tour!

There were a few things I didn't have time to do last year because I ran out of solo time (all the solo time I had, I spent taking endless photos). I vowed to do those things this year because I thought I was going to have a longer trip, but it's looking like it may not be much longer than last year's trip...and at the rate things are going, I don't think I'm going to have time for any of it!

You could end up with a flurry of "company" & doing a lot of the things they want to do & not doing what you want.......I don't mind a little of that, but I surely wouldn't want my entire trip like that. I'd get panicky running on other people's schedules. I'm hoping you get a little time to yourself to do some things on your "to do" list.

I figure you'll send me off in the direction I want to go......after going thru the Superthread....I pretty much have a good idea of what to look for & figure the tour will help cover a few of the biggies of what not to miss. Then I just need to add in the fireworks & I should be set. I'd love to see the WoC but with only the 2 nights.....leary of going to that & having an issue with the fireworks/weather & not seeing those. Those are high on my priority list. Maybe if I see them the first night....I'll do WoC the 2nd night....but chances are.....I'd go see the fireworks again lol It's just who I am!!

I've never done this tour Kaitlin....I have done a couple of the others & really enjoyed them. From what I understand, you get some history of the holidays at DL while listening to Christmas music. They show you some of the decor, take you on the HMH & IASW. You also get seating for the parade with hot cocoa & a gingerbread cookie.

Maybe Sherry (or someone else) can fill you in more on what they do. I'm excited to do this tour!!

So I realized I had forgotten a very important piece to my trip.......getting a new Annual Pass!! So the rest of our money was freed from the clutches of the bank, so I went online & bought a Premium AP!! It ran out after the girls trip in March & the plan was to renew it & use it for the Anniversary part of my trip with the hubby....but money was tight & I ended up letting it lapse & buying a 3 day ticket. I felt nakie without it & it stung everytime we ate or purchased anything & they'd ask if I was an AP holder. Now I'm good for the December trip & the Feb/Mar trip next year & who knows....maybe sneak another one in?? Not that I think that will happen unless we magically win the lottery that we don't tend to play.....but a girl can dream can't she??

You know it's funny but Scotty and I always talk about what we would do if we won the lottery. Only problem with that all is that we never buy it.
