Unless you can get one of those coveted ADR's before the park opens... And don't think I wasn't bummed that it didn't work out. They were getting to be good friends by this point. DS still wouldn't walk up to him on his own though. You're probably right. It would be like a bad wreck. Not something you want to see, but you just can't look away. Indeed He definitely was having some fun... It is one of those things that, to me anyway, just IS Disney. I truly enjoy it, even if it is a bit dated and cheesey. And as far as catchy songs that you can't get out of your head go, give me It's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow anytime. Tim can have IASW. Some people... Thanks I always thought a boat was a little more than an event to you. It isn't Disney without 24/7 junk food. I could feel my life expectancy get shorter by about 5 years... but I'd still be willing to have another one. There are worst addictions to have. It was a very nice evening. But aren't all evenings in the MK a nice evening? Thanks, I really tried to capture the essence of the paint and the struggle that this railing is going through knowing that it will probably be sold for scrap once the new Dumbo opens. As Ron White says, "You can't fix stupid." I could use the sugar rush right now... Thanks I think I would be just fine with making a visit to Disney an annual Christmas tradition. Realistically, that ain't happening though. It's a shame you couldn't explore the grounds at WL, but there's plenty to see indoors. I'm sure you know that well enough though. I'm really glad to see some agreement with my point about GF. It seems like everybody loves it and you seldom see a negative viewpoint about it. I feel a lot better about the fact that I didn't love it. Well, he was out by the time the fireworks started... so I guess he loved it! Thanks, we bought that during our stop at the Mercantile that afternoon. We needed a hat and mittens for him and they sold that with mittens for probably $15-20. He still wears it everyday, so it was a decent purchase. We would have loved to have seen it again, but we saw it once and you've got to take advantage of short lines at Disney World! Thanks, that's one of my favorite character pictures. You could hear them, but they weren't loud. DS slept through them. If the volume of the music doesn't wake you, then I'm sure you'll be fine.
