This is the first year I am braving it. I hope I get to use it as much as I would like. I need to play around with it a bit more because I am rusty! I am going to look more at my latern guide for a refresher as well really "play" with it next week.

Have you used it in WDW? Any situations where you think I should use it?

I love taking pics in WDW - even with the camera phone! I am a photo junkie though.

I figured it out.

I have a son that lives in Houston, I was wondering how close you are to Houston? Texas is such a large state!

Yay!!!

I haven't seen any big reviews or any pictures for the party. In the Official MVMCP thread (I'll get the link if you want it) there have been a few people who skipped the characters because the lines were so long (don't think they were planners) and they said the ride lines weren't too bad and the parade was great.

Congrats!! I hope it all goes smoothly!

I've been looking for the same thing! I'd love to see more about the party.

Disney is already paid for, so I see no reason not to go, but I will definitely be staying at Pop. I bought Disney gift cards at Kroger to pay for most of the trip, so it's not like canceling will give me any real money.
I texted my friend who was laid off from this company last year and went to lunch with her. She starts a new job the week after Thanksgiving. It is a national company that is opening a new plant here. She is the HR manager. She goes to a plant in Indiana her first week to see how they do things and what she needs. Then she starts recruiting and hiring. So if there is any admin type of job, I will be her first hire. She was very excited about the timing of this because she was going to call me this week about it anyway. So it could work out very well. Fingers crossed.

I'm bringing everything. Not in small part because most of what I own is "summer clothes" for obvious reasons. But I'm figuring on jeans/t-shirts during the day if it stays in the 60's/70's with a light jacket, then layers at night, with turtlenecks + 2 jackets and jeans if it gets cold enough. Also we're going to Castaway Cay, so I'm hoping to need summer clothes there, so at least one pair of shorts.

OK, I feel so old, I have no idea what a Bloggies is But I am glad he is enjoying it.
I enjoy watching Once Upon a Time, too, but we don't have TV/cable, I just watch a whole season of whatever show I'm into on Netflix. So I've only seen the first season so far ... from that I'm mostly interested in Rumplestiltskin as he's the most fascinating character to me. Anyhow, try waiting a year every time you want to see more of a show! Thankfully we're not really much of TV people, though we do follow Glee on the internet ...
Oh and I didn't know what a Bloggies was either, and I'm relatively young with an information science degree, so don't feel too bad ... there's just so much stuff out there now ...

At the very least, they need to make it so people can start exiting if they don't want the photo op. Like the old Belle's Storytime.
I hope it does have FP!

Nothing since the tests in September. I was really hoping they'd run another test/open it up to ME riders after Thanksgiving, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

OH NO!!! I'm so sorry

But, if you get time off, paychecks to the end of the year and potientally a job with your friend, maybe it will all work out great!

And I just logged on to come gripe my Dh and I are off work today (yeah holidays!) and I was cleaning up our junk room (kids have school so its a good day to throw junk away) and he says "hun, how much would it be to add mom to our trip?" I mean, I think she'd enjoy going with ... and I didnt hear anything else b/c I think I fainted. I mean I dont mind my MIL going with us, and wouldnt even mind paying for it, but he has NO idea how difficult this change would be this late in the game. 5 is a game changer at WDW!

Someone asked if I had used my speedlight flash at WDW, I havent, I didnt have my dSLR or flash last trip. Im skered!

OH NOOO...that's horrible.
But I do have to say that you have a kick-*** attitude about it, and glad you're still Disney-positive.
I hope everything works out for the new potential position!

I am a firm believer things to happen for a reason. So here's to hoping that things with your friend work out and you have a better oppurtunity!!

I agree, losing your job, could suck, but usually it opens opportunities!
