OMG!!!! I think I saw the same guy. We were there in June and there was a guy who looked JUST LIKE SANTA!!!! We kept seeing him all day. I even saw several kids go up to him. He was very nice to all the kids who wanted to talk to him.

Has anyone gone to a town hall meeting before with their state governor? I'm going today and I'm not sure what to expect.

I can't wait for Christmas shows to start. Maybe that will keep my mind off things when get my rejection letter. My favorite Christmas show/cartoon is The Life and Times of Santa Clause with the immortals.

I'm wearing the necklace I had made at Pick-a-Pearl last month. Maybe it'll bring some good Disney luck!

Possibly! We saw him in November. I am sure Santa loves the MAGIC of Disney just as much as the rest of us. So like I told me kids, best to always be on your best behavior, you never know when the Jolly Ol' Elf will show up!

I have been to several. This is my favorite public forum for getting to know a candidate's true ideas and personality.

While you are not required to participate, I always go with at least one questions in mind that I would like the candidates to answer. I am not sure what form your town hall meeting will take but some have you write the questions down, some you go up and get in line at a microphone and some have runners with mics that will come to you if you raise your hand.

Congratulations on getting involved in the political process!!!

There is a new movie coming out around Thanksgiving called Rise of the Guardians which is supposed to be about the immortals. My DD already put that on the list of holiday movies she wants to see.

My daughter wants to see that one two, and like at your house, it's on the list. :smile:

This is hilarious! I did the same thing! It is funny...in past years I have applied and never thought I would make it, so no real disappointment when I didn't. This year is different; somehow I feel like this is my year! Oh well, a little wishing never hurt anyone!

I was in WDW when Obama was there in January too - we didn't see him though.

Several years back I saw Andy Dick - we were in line for Dinosaur and he and two women were escorted through the line.

Also saw Sabrina Soto from HGTV, but it was the Flower & Garden show this past March, so not a surprise to see her!

You know, the day that I found out I was accepted into the Disney College Program, I woke up, put on my open Disney jewelry, and headed up to campus to check my mail before class. My acceptance packet was waiting for me. Perhaps there is something to the idea of Disney jewelry bringing luck.

I haven't seen the previews for this yet, but just this morning we got an email for the children's holiday movie party - which is going to be Rise of the Guardians. Do you think it's appropriate for a 5 year old?

I still think Saturday is the day and it will open up on Monday.

Luckily yesterday I had a field trip to the Pumpkin Farm to keep me busy. You know so I only checked every 1/2 hour or so.

Here is the good news in not knowing yet....we all are still in the running and still have a chance

I think it looks scary for a 5 year old. I have an almost 4 year old and I wouldn't feel comfortable letting him watch it but that's me.
