Really? That's interesting, but 7 is one of those inbetween ages kids are very opinionated so maybe that's why. I would like to give it another chance.

It really was so pretty. I'm not sure why we didn't go a second time. I can't wait to ride it again.

That was pretty cool. I enjoy that place and we decided why the heck not. With the TIW card its only a little more expensive than counter service and its nice to get waited on. lol!

They say only 1 in 5 deferrals get in. I guess you can't be too disappointed with a deferral. It means you are good enough to get in, but there are just that many more people in front of you that have better stats. I know the school has an amazing rep. I think he learned that if you want certain schools you have to set yourself up before your senior year. It was really a last minute decision for him to apply.

Thanks Dawn! I am very happy for him. He worked hard in high school and it paid off.

You are going to love it. There's so much to see. I don't think my photos even scratch the surface. I can't wait to ride it again in June. It's really pretty!

The fog lifting looked so cool!

Ou rpark plan this morning was MK. Cynthia mentioned rope drop. I'm pretty sure that didn't happen or I would have some pictures. As you can see, my memory of the morning events hasn't improve much. compared to the evening before. But I assure you - it DOES get better.
YOU did not make rope drop.

I did.

I even have pictures to prove it



You went for your run and I got to see the opening show for the first time ever. We both rode SM, but separately and met after that.

Love the fog picture!

Nick's college acceptances are all in. He got accepted to 8 out of the 9 schools he applied to.
Congrats to Nick! Glad he has so many good choices to select from!

You got some good "walking" queue photos, and some really good ride photos in the low light and with all the movement!

Yes, funny how Disney seems to make that happen!

A lot of nice Christmas pictures from Longwood Gardens! Funny how us Disney fanatics are always finding Hidden Mickeys even in everyday life!!!

With all the comments about your memory not being exactly clear what you did, and it being difficult to figure it out from your pictures or lack of them, I was beginning to think I was reading Pat's Horrible TR again......

Haha. I'm reading this at band practice. I completely forgot we went and different times. T told you there is SO much I cant remember about this trip. I don't know if that's good or bad, meaning everything was so spontaneous or I really am suffering from dementia.

Congrats to Nick getting all the accepts. My son who went to Montana had Virginia Tech on his short list of schools. They have a good mining engineering course.

A few years ago filming was being done at TTofT. That was interesting as filming was inside at the line queue. Also when on our first cruise which was Carnival, a commercial with Kathy Lee Gifford was being made. They were all over the ship and at the ports of call.

Congrats, Nick! How awesome that he has so many options!

The Little Mermaid looks great...I'm so glad New Fantasyland includes a traditional type of dark ride, I think they moved away from that too much in the past decade or so.

And LTT just may be my favorite place to eat at WDW. My jealousy continues...

If that is the horrible side effect to having a great trip, not remembering what you did when , join the club.

I can't help you here - I was on my way home.



Congrats to Nick!!!! So many choice - another great problem to have. You must be so proud of him!!!

AHHH! Congrats to Nick! You know, I personally think he should go for Virginia Tech! But I'm not biased or anything... I'm not currently wearing a Virginia Tech crew neck or anything...

I love all the morning park pictures! And I feel like I never see pictures from the inside of Space Mountain so YAY!

Ah... I had to skip a lot of your last update because I've been trying realllly hard to stay spoiler free until I get to see New Fantasyland for myself! So... skipping... skipping... covering my eyes... AH, okay. Aww, those Christmas display pictures are gorgeous! I miss Christmas.

Congrats to Nick, and good luck in the decision-making process.

I'm glad you folks got to check out the new Fantasyland. Great pictures of Ariel's Grotto.

Oooo, and some Longwood pics. Sweet! We went at Christmastime also, but I only took a few iPhone pictures...I guess I was just taking it all in.

Congrats to Nick! Let us know what he chooses.

I thought the Little Mermaid was cute but I wanted it to be longer. How cool you got in for a soft opening.

I love Longwood Gardens, but missed going last year. Your pictures are beautiful!
