Well, I don't know about the other ladies, but I did not know about the characters in England. Of course, I can never get Denny or the kids to take character shots with me, so that's not surprising! I don't think you can go wrong the photopass CD. One trip Denny and I went by ourselves for 4 nights. We really didn't have enough pix for the CD, but we had a calendar made and I think it was $30 well spent. I would love to stay in a 2BR. We haven't been in a 2BR since last May (2010) and I miss all the room. We are just renting a studio at OKW, but I think it will be fine for the 3 of us. I wanted a 1 BR, but I won't revisit that right now. Just didn't make sense because we really won't know if Nick can go until the last minute. We will also have a car so groceries will not be a problem. Denny has never used Disney transportation. Yes, he is a car snob. That hat is way cute!
