    Thanks again for checking. We did the sleigh ride once and what was kind of nice was the experience to just walk out front, have the ride be there, then be dropped of back in front to be ready to do something else. Walking/taking a bus to get to FW, then doing the same thing to get back, kind of takes away the enjoyment of it, especially since it's only about 20 minutes anyway.

    Perhaps it could also be that outside of the Christmas lights on the campers, we've never had an enjoyable experience at FW. We did the Hoop-Dee-Doo Review and none of us enjoyed it (and the food was terrible). We did the smores at the campfire with Chip and Dale and it too was a letdown. Not what we were expecting - crowded and unpleasant for the young ones and not worth the bus ride/walk IMHO. For all the times we've been to DW, I could count on one hand the bad experiences we've had and two were at FW. The DW getting food poisoning when we stayed at the Poly one year and the utter lack of any real "boardwalk" experience when we stayed at the overpriced Boardwalk Inn were the others. We know our comfort zone is at WL and stay close to home. ;)

    Naaaa, only 700# if you go to my favorite gym and they've told me at the Main Street Confectionary that treats are calorie-free on vacation;)

    THANK YOU Ilivetogo for the terrific photos! Which cupcake was your favorite? Even though you haven't yet stayed at WL, do you think you might someday?

    What is the name of that cupcake please? I usually get the s'mores one, but I think I might have to try the one with caramel on my next trip.

    That chocolate fudge one with the carmel inside was my favorite. It was awesome!!!!

    We also had the Oreo Bonbon one at the Boardwalk Bakery, and the Strawberry Lemonade one at the Contempo Cafe. My DD18 took the other back to college for her roommates (the Carrot Cake one, and the Smores one)and she said the Smores one was also very good. We were on a cupcake quest like in the cupcake thread!!

    So exciting for everyone that are so close. We got our Disney package yesterday in the mail. Seeing the magical express tags makes it seem closer. 32 more days for us until we are back !

    DBF was critiquing what I posted here as my favorite, and he realized he didn't upload his favorite. So, here it is
