Have you tried Flikr? I don't know if they have as many framing options, and in general I hate that you can't grab the bbcode right from the iphone app -- you have to use the browser, but I find the resolution is much better. Might be worth checking out.

Thanks for clarifying and it'll be great to see today's outfit
That is funny. I could totally do that to Melissa, but I would be in trouble when she figured it out.

Today was Allie's BBB appointment, so it was a fancy dress morning.


After an afternoon break in the room she switched into something more comfy, but kept her sash.

Yes it is just 56 Days and yet I was over checking availability for our dates at WL but when I mentioned it to Bob he said he doesn't want to switch I was really surprised since WL use to be his favorite so I guess We will be staying put at least for now.

I am never far from this thread I just lurk a lot

All done! It's more of a photo album than review. Between this thread and the two recent in-depth WL and CL reviews I did, I just couldn't see boring everyone with a re-hash of the same information, so I hope everyone likes oodles of WL/VWL photos

I know your "open to lobby" question was answered by Candace, but you can email the IPO with any location requests you might have, but you'll want to do it at least 5 days prior to arrival.

How exciting and who cares about the co-wrokers, they'll be rid of you soon enough and then they'll have more work to do

Thanks for the suggestion. I've been using PB since '09 and have thousands of image codes with them. It's strange, but when I switched to a slightly older Apple laptop, it worked better than my new Apple desktop so I was able to get everything edited more quickly. I also learned to set it to only upload my photos at a certain size, so now I won't have to re-size anymore and DD suggests skipping the framing altogether. So that should help the next time I have a few hundred photos to post. Everything was fine with PB until they "improved" everything and changed all their software. All good things...

Paul and Melissa:

We are all loving your photos and I hardly recognized HRH Allie. I love that she did an outfit change. DD wants to know how long will Allie want to keep her hair that way, and how long will you let her keep her hair that way?

BTW, not trying to be (too) nosy, but are your folks not with you this time? I hope you didn't leave them behind, but you haven't mentioned them this trip.

Love the crown-wearing DDs. Mine kept reminding me that our first stop last month had to be on Main Street to get a shiny crown. Sure enough, it was our first stop. She chose her crown and wore it proudly all day. The next day, a piece broke off. Off we went back to Arribas Bros. with DD14 for a crown replacement. We thought for sure she'd wear it to the first day of school, but she was afraid it would get broken again. She's saving it for Christmas when she can get another one if this one breaks...

I am not 100% positive, but I think they follow you. It's linked through your MDE.

GrandCalifornian -what a great family picture with Mickey and Allie looks so cute after her BBB. I've been looking out for her in the lobby whenever we're down here, couldn't mistake those beautiful outfits your wife made. Glad you're having a great time.

Thanks for the heads up on the mugs, we just went now and switched out the regular black ones we bought yesterday.

GrandCalifornian - as my DW mentioned great pics and your DD is adorable! Thanks for the heads up on the mugs.

I did my Exotic Driving Experience today at 2:00 and had an AMAZING time again. Drove the Lamborghini Gallardo this time, last year I drove the Ferarri 458 Italia and I actually went faster in the Lamborghini. 124 MPH!

I was going to post these pics of the Lodge last night but Photobucket has been causing me grief for some reason. So here are a few pics I took:
