    Why don't we take a page out of Disney's playbook and have specifically themed weeks. 1 week will be food pics. Another week, funny stories. Another week, sappy stories. Another week, "Add-a-caption" for certain submitted pics. Etc...

    Just my opinion.

    If we will do it from Disney's playbook, it would be a theme for a year that then gets extended until beaten to death.

    I keed I keed!!

    Yes, I do like that idea a LOT!!

    How about you pick the first theme!!?! Then people can PM me the pictures that fit (or stories/reviews) etc.

    Could we also just post the pictures? Like if you said this weeks theme is ________ - and we post away? It takes a little off your plate :)

    The games, pics, etc sound like fun :-)

    I wasn't planning to do my own trip report thread, just sharing stuff here. I'm looking forward to more charting with all the great folks from Dec!

    Had some big time worry today! We leave tomorrow, 2100 miles to drive home and this morning I woke up with a cough and a sore chest! My wife does very little driving and would have been terrified to have to drive so far by herself, but fortunately I seem to have pulled through it. :goodvibes. Here's hoping that I feel good when I wake up in 7 hours!

    Well, I woke up feeling kind of bleh, but I think I'll be ok. We checked out early and headed to DHS for a few last rides. We got fastpasses for TSM to give away and then walked into the new Pirate walkthrough where Narnia used to be. We both really liked it! DW is currently drawing at the animator place while I'm waiting by the exit doors. After this we'll be heading to DTD to use up our last 3 quick service credits at Earl of Sandwich and then we're off! I hope to get at least 12-13 hours of driving in today.

    Good luck. Have fun. And drive safe.

    Can you give any more details about the pirate walk through?

    Sure, you walk into a room where a floating skeleton head asks you if you want to join Captain Jack Sparrow's crew. You then enter the main room that comes alive with skeletons, the Flying Dutchman and quite a bit of Captain Jack talking to you. It's very funny, some parts are very much for kids but anyone of any age will enjoy it. Very technologically up-to-date! Lots of eye candy. :)

    We didn't end up leaving WDW until 12:40, I drove the whole way and we've stopped in Chatanooga for the night. I really like to do the drive in two days but the way I'm feeling, there's just no way. We're going to do another 800 or so miles tomorrow and the last 700 miles on Sunday. Hopefully a long sleep will do me some good. Once I get home I'll be uploading my 1200 pictures to photo bucket and I'll continue my TR which I'll then link at that time.

    Good night all! :thumbsup2

    We made it to Menomonie, Wisconsin, (love saying the name of that town, reminds me of a Muppets skit. :lmao:) so now we're only about 550 miles from home. My cough hasn't really improved except that it's less frequent. Still feels horrible when it does happen. But at least I don't really feel sick or fatigued! Can't wait to see our two dogs tomorrow! Their names are Disney and Ella. (short for Cinderella, or Cruella if she's being bad. :rotfl:)

    Yeah! I'm here....

    congrats on the pregnancy!

    I like any theme. I'm starting to put together my trip report. I took about 2000 pictures too, add to that 400 photopass photos (but many of those are dups with borders vs no borders)........

    I'm off to read the last couple of pages then I'm caught up :)

    We finally made it home a few hours ago, so our trip is officially 100% over! :sad1: Oh well, it was a good trip. Of course, now that I no longer have to drive long distances, I'm starting to feel better! :rotfl: I'll start uploading pictures to photobucket tomorrow and continue my TR. :goodvibes

    Umm......I love ALL of those ideas :rotfl:

    That's a GREAT idea! Maybe Tofu can post the week's theme in one of the reserved spots at the beginning of the thread and then we can all just post our responses for that week so Tofu isn't getting 500 PMs every week with stuff to add to the forum.

    I got Epic Mickey 2 for Christmas, but things have been so NUTZ I haven't had a chance to play it yet. LOVED the first one though!

    This is pretty much where I'm at too. It's sorting through all the photos and getting all the photos and videos off the iPhones, camera and camcorder that's holding up my trip report process. I basically spent all of our Christmas break after the holiday feeling sorry for myself because our trip was over, and looking at all the photos right then was just too depressing, so none of that got done while I was off work and actually had the time to tackle that project.
