About your camera... I am not sure which one you got but I carry a Nikon D7000, and I use a sling strap. It is awesome, and makes taking pictures at Disney much easier.

I have been using it for 4 years now, with a previous camera also.

I use my bag when I go on something wet, but mostly just use the strap for walking around and dry rides.

I have the womens and sport version

Thanks so much for the info. I found a Crumpler which is a smallish sling bag and gives me great accessilbilty. I had seen one at REI before the trip but it was $70 so I didn't get it. When I got back I looked on ebay and was able to find one for $30. I did see a bunch of people with sling straps and will probably get one as well. I'm just nervous about hitting the camera on stuff.


Oh you must try EoS, it is so delicious!

Thanks for a great TR! Your honesty and thorough reporting was very refreshing.

You showed me quite a few things I didn't know about.

Thanks so much for following along! At times I thought 'should I include this', 'is this too much info?' I figured I'd just put it all in and hopefully not bore anybody.

I love that there's always something new to discover regarding Disney.

Ew, bugs in the rooms? I understand that this is AKV, but that's going too far! Gross though, seriously.

I really wish we could have done some of the trails at AK. I think my mom would have liked them, now knowing she likes anything to do with animals, which I did not know at the time.

Aw, your TR is over Thank you so much for doing it. I love the way you write and how you remember to include little facts. Sometimes I forget to do that with my TR's.

Oh my goodness, that bug was humongous! As big as my thumb and horribly fast. I was so proud of myself for thinking to catch it with the cup. It was like I was victorious in battle

An excellent excuse to go back. Do you think your mom would ever do the plane ride again?

Thanks so much for following along. Thank you for the compliment! The only way I remember anything is by writing the journals. I used to read whenever there was down time, now I write in the journal.

That bug would have freaked me out. You have me rethinking a future trip at AKL

I never knew that there were kangaroos at AK either. I love that Stitch Big Fig. This would look gorgeous in my living room. And yes, I did check Ebay.

I am glad that you had a chance to do your favourite rides again. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Just the thought of that bug creeps me out! I was going to take a picture of it when I got back to the room to show you guys but never got the chance.

I thought of you when I saw that figurine. Stitch is mom's favorite as well so I'm always on the lookout for her. He is just so cute!

It was a really nice last day. I'm glad we were all able to do what we wanted to.

Thanks for following along

I'm really hoping and praying that she'll be able to get on a plane again. We were just talking about our trip yesterday and was about to ask her if she would go again, but didn't want to push it too soon. But it was fun reminiscing about our trip, so i'm hoping that all the good memories from that trip will encourage her to take another trip in the future.

Checking in from Key West. The Wonder is gorgeous. It snowed the day we left which was nice to leave. Hope you're all having a great day!
