    I posted a few on facebook that I took with my phone. They didn't have a lot, but I loved what I saw.

    thanks

    Thanks, it was a nice get away.

    Thanks

    thanks

    Our weekend is coming to an end. My sister left for work this morning and I am letting Claire sleep in after waking her early each day. I think I'll wake her in the next hour or so to get her moving so we can get packed up and headed on our drive home.

    Your Mermaid pics are awesome. Counting down the days till I can ride it myself. I ordered a new camera, so hopefully my pics will look better. Not as good as yours, I'm sure, but better than my last trip.

    Cool!

    No, actually I think she new better, but I surprised her by asking her which dolls she like best and when she narrowed it down to 2 I told her she could get 1 of them.

    We exited the New Fantasyland and went for a ride on Pooh.

    I always love this store. Pooh stuff is just so darn cute.

    We saw Scrooge was out, but we had to get a spot for the parade and couldn’t stop.

    [​IMG]

    UGH!!!! This parade was super packed too. I had hoped going to the later one would be less crowded but both this one and the Halloween ones were jammed with people.

    We were lucky and found a decent spot and some guys let Claire sit on the ground in front of them and I was back and could stand on a ledge. I found out that everyone around…all adults, were there for pictures too. I tried not to get my arms and elbows in the way of others as I shot pictures. I did a pretty poor job. It was so dark and my flash was not recharging correctly (I think it had a low battery). The best way to work it was to turn off the flash and camera and return them both back on to take the next picture. It was slow, but faster than waiting for the recharge. In the end, I am not happy with my pictures, but we LOVED this parade.

    I couldn’t get Snow to look my way. She was too busy gazing into the eyes of the Prince.

    Here it is!!!!! That float that has been around for AT LEAST 15 years. I know it was there in the mid 90’s when I took my older two. They just keep adding a little something to it to make it look different. Sorry Disney…it’s not working, we all know it’s that same float…..and it needs to GO!!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They say Spectro isn’t coming back because the floats are falling apart ….why can’t this one fall apart too?

    One thing I hate about this float is it is not photographer friendly. Those Spires seem to always be in the way to catch a face in a shot.

    Great parade photos, Jen! I love that you take so many for all of us to enjoy.

    I had to LOL about "the" old float. Yes, you are right the spires get in the way, but you should see how they use the same floats for EVERYTHING at DLRP!! :rotfl2: Put a few pumpins on it and it turns into Halloween, a little snow and it becomes Christmas .........

    Great Picture! I really would love to catch the fireworks from FL area, but I have that little voice in my head that says the best place is still in front of the Castle.

    Kadence was having fun this morning going through and catching up here. She loves Claire's picture with the gargoyle.

    I'm glad we did ETWB, but like you I don't see it as a have to for each day we're in park.

    Great pictures all around, I hate no flash rules....:sad:

    Well, for the trouble you wee having with your camera and the fact that you aren't totally pleased with your pics, I think they turned out great. I wish they would put just a tad more lights on the parade route. It would eliminate the need for the flash all together. :headache:

    I agree that the float you mentioned needs to go. You can only recycle it so many times. Plus, come on, they got the dough to construct a new one.

    I haven't seen the Christmas parade for quite a few years. Looks like I need to because a few things have changed.
