I wish! Since Dale is a retail manager he can't take vacation from mid-October through January so he'll never get to go at that time of year and now that Caitlin is married our girls trips might be done

Queen, to answer your post above if we are doing Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party....yes we are. After Todd and Nicki go home, we are going that Sunday night...this is something Andy and Des wanted to do.

Yay for a Holiday WDW trip!!!

That's the best time of the year to visit, in my opinion. And as far as sunbathing goes, you never know. 2011 was freezing but 2012 was warm enough for shorts and t-shirts. So 2013 might be a warm one again.

Love the early December dates, as well. Of course, Dh and I have our trip tentatively planned for the 2nd through the 10th, so of course I like them. I can only imagine how great it would be to have so much time to explore the holiday decorations and the seasonal entertainment.


(By the way, coming from someone who lives in FL, I wouldn't go on a cruise in the middle of hurricane season, either. )

Hey girl! How exciting that you have dates for your next trip!! I'm enjoying your report but mostly lurking because I can never get 5 uninterrupted minutes these days! I just got a few so I thought I'd say hi and let you know I'm still reading along.

Oh of course! That should have dawned on me....busiest time of the year, I guess it`s important that the manager be in the store I thought of that too and it made me sad for you because I don`t know how many girl`s trips I have left either

Good to know....so I`ll check with you about the weather before we head out

For this year....any chance you will be there on those dates say .... in 2013

See, I knew it!! Who would knowingly go on a cruise during hurricane season....did I mention my oldest niece is terrified of cruising after she watched Titanic....

So I left off with us waiting to head over to watch the parade. Again, we did it because we were there and wanted to take everything in. We found a great spot about an hour before the parade started and I was having a lovely converstion with an older lady and her sister. Their kids with their kids were already sitting on the curb anxiously awaiting the parade to start. We were chit chatting and having a great ol time passing away the minutes until it started when the unthinkable happened. Well, actually, it's not that unthinkable, it's becoming more of the norm here. A woman and her son decided they would just walk in front of everyone and stand there....yup, just stood right in front of this little lady...who does that???. Apparently, this woman. I turned to my new friend and said are you going to tell her to move and she said no, the last time I said something to someone during a parade they threw their coke at me and then dumped their popcorn on me WHAT??? Ok, no worries sweetie I got this one. I don't think I need to go into detail but let me just say, they moved! I felt so bad for this lady and her sister because obviously what happened at the MK wasn't so magical for them. I couldn't let it go, maybe I should have, but it's just not who I am.

With that little piece of business out of the way....on with the parade! Enjoy the pictures...remember I don't know who most people are so I won't write anything because, well, I'll just embarrass myself my saying wrong names or somethign.....

What is wrong with people? Throwing coke and popcorn at people for asking you to move during the parade? That's horrible.

Great pics of the parade! I haven't been to Star Wars weekends in like seven years. You make me really want to go.

What the HE DOUBLE HOCKEY STICK was that woman thinking? Because SHE chose not to stake out a spot early, she is going to block someone's view. Um, I don't think so sister. Queen you did the right thing and I'm glad you did. We have become such a selfish society and it really ticks me off.

Your pictures are great of the parade (and I wouldn't know ANY of their names).

Did she look like she was oblivious? Or just mean?

1st is Mickey
2nd is Minnie
3rd is Darth Vader
4th is Donald Duck...
... and so on. See? Nothing to it!

(okay, I don't a lot of the rest either. But I did recognize the guy who owns the Mall!)

I think it is awesome that you stood up for your new friend!

The girl in the convertible is Ashley Eckstein. She voices one of characters in the Clone Wars cartoon. More impressive is that she started her own company (Her Universe) that focuses on Geek clothes for girls.

I'm so glad you spoke up for that woman and had those people move out of the way. I can't stand when people take advantage of sweet (and especially older) people!

I wouldn't know all of the names of the characters in the parade either. I know my son would think that was the coolest though seeing them all walk down the street

Hooray for a Christmas trip!!!! I'm dying to see WDW at the holidays. Maybe in 2-3 years...

Great parade pics! I cannot believe that someone would throw food and drink at someone else over parade viewing spots. How awful! I am so glad that you helped make those ladies' trips a little nicer. I wouldn't be able to let go of it either. It's shameful. I'll bet that they had a really nice afternoon with you and Shanleigh though.

The parade looks like a lot of fun! Hope you weren't too steamed to enjoy it!

I am way behind but YAY for a Christmas trip next year! I am a little jealous, but hopefully I'll be able to go next year after Christmas too. My sister got accepted into the College Program again so she'll be down there until August. She's probably going to try to extend which means she'd be there even longer. We'll see! It's been a long time since I've seen the lights too and I miss them.
