    Well folks, the Photopass pics are in & here are a few of them.......of course with these being added....it means, this report has come to an end! :eek: :sad2: :sad1: I appreciate each & everyone of you that have stopped in to read it, look at the pics & even say hello!!!!! Be on the look out for my Diva's Take Two report & soon a PTR for WDW!!!

    I've tried to include one of each of the holiday borders available online when ordering your CD:

    Pooh Bear!!

    This was up by the Big Thunder Ranch:

    It's the Band Conductor from Silly Symphonies~Mickey!! (that's a new one for me)

    [​IMG]

    The castle during the daytime (regret to say, I somehow missed doing a nighttime castle shot~~even with watching the fireworks both nights.....heavy sigh)

    [​IMG]

    So a few of you might remember me telling you about the Photopass photographer I met during the Diva/anniversary trip last March.....he's a real hoot. You are made to feel like a model, you expect him to say "work it darling".....lol anywho's....he was at the Partner's Statue when I stopped. Very fun CM!!

    I got to see Chip AND Dale at the same time over in California Adventure (in front of BugsLand)

    Main Street Christmas tree at night:

    Duffy!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    I thought this was a fun one.......in front of the Christmas tree on the Pier (over by the gazebo Mickey calls home year round....except for when Santa is in the house)

    [​IMG]

    Santa at the gazebo on the Pier:

    Yes it does!!! I had one correct me on how I was asking (I guess I wasn't using proper english)....didn't feel much like smiling. That happened a few trips ago.

    I know exactly the fun photographer you are talking about by the Partners statue. In fact, if he is the same one I am thinking of, he will play a pivotal role in my own TR too (whenever I feel like starting it, which hasn't happened yet!:rotfl:). You'll see!

    In fact, if that is the same photographer I am thinking of, he also used to be the one handling the 'Stitch-popping-out-of-the-present' photo op by the tree in DCA, back in 2008. The Stitch/present photo was originally happening in 2008 and in then the following year (2009), the Christmas tree in DCA was relocated to the Paradise Pier area...and PhotoPass stopped doing the Stitch/present pictures. Only this past holiday 2011 season did they bring back the Stitch/present photo! It was gone in 2009 and 2010!

    Although...my PP photographer last month tried to get me doing just the 'smiling' pose with Stitch coming out of the present, and I said, "No...let's do it how it's supposed to be done, where I look shocked!"

    She said, "Do you WANT to look shocked?"

    I said, "Yes! Of course! That's how I would look if Stitch were popping out of a present, so let me look shocked!":rotfl2:


    I think your picture with Christmas Pooh is extra, extra cute! Your Duffy picture is much better than mine because your photographer actually took the time to crop it/frame it properly. When I get around to posting my Duffy photo, you will see that it was not cropped well. The photographer was barely paying attention! And they didn't give me an "I hugged Duffy" sticker like they should have.:mad:

    Laurie - how much did your PhotoPass CD cost, with postage and after discounts or anything? What was the total cost?


    Yay for the WDW holiday trip!!!:cool1::cool1: I've said it before; I will say it again - that will be one whopper of a Trip Report, photo-wise! Yikes!

    The photographer is shorter & has glasses....very talkative & takes a number of poses. Very friendly....he even cleaned the lens on my camera & reset the pixels (or something like that).....he said he set to what his personal one is.....but then whispered....I didn't do anything to your camera...."wink wink".....lol

    Loved the stitch in the present....very cute!!

    I have a few pics this time around that were blurry. I only put 10 of probably 60 pics...but its weird for me to get excited about pictures of myself. I did the CD because of the Christmas stuff & borders, otherwise I would have passed.

    The CD ran around $65 with postage I believe.....I didn't even think to check if there was an AP disc. ($64.90....just looked at check register). I got it really fast too!!

    :dance3: Will be in photo heaven at WDW......lol :dance3:

    I am pretty sure we had that same photographer when we went in Oct 2010. He had us do a number of poses and said he was doing something with our camera as well! Really fun guy.

    Love the Christmas photos! Especially the one with Stitch!

    Might hop over to your Divas PTR, and will for sure join your WDW one when it's started! :)

    Just finished reading this TR :) Beautiful pictures! i'm excited to go this December, even though I was just there 2 days ago. The photographer's name is Dave, he's at the Partners Statue MF 9-5. He took us a little around the hub: Partner's Statue, Astro Orbitors, Matterhorn, and the Castle. He's a wonderful photographer and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a more personal experience :)
