You and me both! I fell in love with that shot the moment I saw it for that very reason.

Very nice start of the morning at DL with a DISMeet. I always enjoy walking in DL in the morning with the Christmas decorations up on MS and walking on over to our first ride or activity.

Nice aerial photos from AO. It is a little sad that the FNSV is closed for my upcoming trip in a few days but it is nice that it will be returning later this year.

Great update.

A DisMeet at the Gates. Where else? How appropriate.
I haven't been on the Matterhorn since the refurb. The concensus is that it is a lot more bumpy than before the refurb and I wasn't quite ready to give up my memories of the Matterhorn yet; so I didn't get on it during the last trip. Maybe next time.

I love love love your flashbacks. They are just so wonderful.

Carefree and happy? Absolutely. That's why we love Disney.

Love the picture of your DD when she was little with her thumbs up, so cute. And the one of her enjoying the AstroOrbiter, that's a classic too

It was so nice to finally meet! And crazy that it was at the gate on your first day in the parks.

Love, love, love seeing all your pictures. I will be re-living the memories!

I'd say the Matterhorn is equally bumpy as before. Once per trip is plenty for me.

The flashbacks are fun. The beauty of digital is that you have access to photos and can bring them with you on a phone if you want to get the right angle to re-create an old photo. Some of my favorite photos are repeats.

I have to ask, where did Katie find the red ears? All I've ever seen are the green. Great TR so far!

I definitely was traumatized after the Matterhorn. Oh my word that was rough!!!!
I am loving all the flashback pictures. It's so hard to believe they are all that young at one time. I just recently was looking through my cruise pictures for a particular one from 2011 and gosh, Claire looks so young there and it wasn't that long ago.
Seeing your pictures makes me realize all the ones I have missed taking!!! I just need to go back!

Thanks Bret. It just felt great to have someone call out my name and say hi as we were waiting to walk into the park. Then to top that off with walking down Main Street under that brilliant blue sky with all the decorations up........ it was pure heaven.

Thanks PIO. I'm glad everyone is enjoying the flashbacks. I'm enjoying digging through the old photos along with the new ones.

I know that I do have some arthritis in my neck now, so part of the experience at Matterhorn might be related to that. But it really does seem much rougher than before.

Thanks! I know the Astro Orbiter isn't where most head at rope drop, but it was a great way to start our visit with a nice view of the park from above.

That photo has sort of taken on legend status in our family. I *might* have used an enlargement of that photo on a scrapbook page from that trip. Katie is over it though and laughs at the page now. I think.....

Hey Wendy! I'm so glad you recognized our ears that morning and said hi. It was a great way to start the day!

Let's just say I'm far better at pulling flashback photos from 11/04 forward. That's when I went digital and haven't looked back. I LOVE that all of my photos are available at my fingertips.

I wanted to work on a scrapbook page from 2002 recently and...... oh my........ had to dig through boxes of old negatives. Not fun at all.

I'm sure I'll do the Matterhorn again next time, but will probably be "one and done" again.

I wonder if it's any better if you ride in the front of the car? I know that with our quick access via the single rider line, we ended up in the very back, and I'm sure that didn't help.
