    Awwwww, I almost got a tear in my eye just reading this. That is soooo exciting for them. They are the most wonderful ages to enjoy such an experience. It is so worth all of the planning and expense. I can't wait to hear how much they love it all.

    Thanks Ms.Shuttergirl - easily one of the BEST coverages I've seen.

    I went last year in Nov and the crowd was NO WAY as busy at that - much easier.

    My tips - def - be at the Dwarves by 6pm (ish) I arrived at 6:15 - 6:30pm. Was about 30 from the front; it moved quickly and I was finished in under an hour. When I left (7:20 ish) the queue had become 2 hours long. So watch your crowd levels and do your MUST SEE character first.

    Also for parade photos - beware of standing opposite a flood light. I bagged a great spot at the front of the castle. Parade came round and BAM on went a flood light and my photos were washed out.

    Queues for rides were really short!! 15 mins tops - it was great!

    I'm so bummed about this. The only thing that would cheer me up if they change Whoopi or NPH to my date :rotfl:.

    Thanks for the personal info from when you were there. And the floodlight tip is a great one.

    I'm going to skip lining up for the dwarves. I will be able to snap a pic of them in the parade and I'd rather just enjoy the rest of the party I think. I do remember you sharing that photo from last year though. If I was going on my own I would so line up.

    I am also going to skip the dwarves - not interested enough to wait that long to meet anyone!

    My big plans for the party:
    - the parade (I hope we can last long enough to see the second parade)
    - the dance parties (especially the one with Woody and Jessie, she is Alexis' favourite character)
    - the shows (celebrate the season and a very tomorrow land Christmas)
    - photo with Santa
    and I just want the time to wander and soak up the atmosphere. Maybe a ride or two, a hot chocolate, some people watching... Happiness:)

    Ms Shuttergirl - NPH would be great!
