ROFL. Love it!

I'll make it easier: I have a goatee. That should narrow it down.

If you see an old couple at MK wearing bride and groom ear hats, that's probably us on our honeymoon. Finally!

I was widowed 5 years ago. She was widowed 14 years ago. We're starting out our married life together playing like a couple of kids! I have one son; she has one son. We're leaving them home! This will be our first vacation ever just the two of us.

WL honeymoon room - here we come!
That is the cutest. I hope to bump into you, two there. I will be there on Friday, with my DS12, BF, her DH, their 3 kids, her sister and her oldest DD10.

To all of those still in the World or yet to start their vacations, please post as much as you are able. I want to live vicariously through you just a bit longer.

We've been here for four days and it's been pretty great. Unfortunately, I've been pretty sick with a cough, but I've pulled through.

I'm going to be pretty darn depressed to go back home, but it's only a couple of months until graduation and about four months until I'm permanently in Florida.

I realized a 3rd session thats missing too (duffy at epcot). Having 3 missing sessions on different days in a 5 day period makes me wonder how often this happens
I think it probably happens fairly often, especially during busier times. It's up to the Photopass photographers to make sure your card gets scanned into the system. I got the feeling from a couple of my photogs that they didn't try very hard, so hopefully all my photos are intact. We didn't take duplicates everywhere.

We walked around POR, and liked it a lot better than POFQ where we stayed. The Disney resorts are so different that sometimes certain things just don't appeal to others. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Well...I'm glad you ran into my DH, because at least that makes you seem a little less crazy to yours!

yup, they ended up finding all 3 of my missing sessions. I still think that's not a very good record for them, losing that many of one person's photos - different parks, different days so it wasn't like a 1 time malfunction or something.

You're right. They definitely need to retrain the CMs, or figure out a different system. It's not a malfunction. It's human error. I'm almost positive that there's an indicator on the camera that tells them when the number has been recorded, because I've had photogs take extra time to double check. I think I've even had one give me a new card before because he was having trouble with my current one.
It's probably more likely that some just don't care, or are in too much of a hurry.

That's promising that they found them, they've lost 3 sets of our already and we still have 2 days left! It's my 5th time using PP and have never had any trouble before.

They have found one of my missing sets so far, I'll be really bummed if the others don't turn up. One was with the Monsters Inc characters, and I've had "plans" for that picture for some time. The other was the Beast dancing with DD at BoG.

Wow, they just have a terrible success rate for this! I wouldnt mind if it was a free service, but they charge enough for it! They should get it right!

Now I'm paranoid that there are missing photos I don't know about!
All the biggies are there (Pluto, 1900 PF, Tusker House, Jedi Training, Wishes dessert party, ride pics) but wondering if there are some individual shots I don't remember having taken.... We didn't wait in line for characters and two of the three we did take outside of character dining didn't have photogs with them (Rafiki and Alice) so all the other pictures I have are from when I could coerce the family to stop (AGAIN, MOM????)
