    Where's a like button when you need it! Besides, I'm sure no one is going to disappear until after we all know how Val likes her new job at the very least!

    I have a Canon SX260HS. I'm trying to make myself like it but nothing is as good as my dSLR Canon Rebel.

    I know! The $81 for a balcony seat at the Fox for Book of Mormon is NUTZ, but sissy was threatening dragging me to NY next year just to see it, and that would have been WAY more expensive, so I didn't complain too much!

    Still not sure how I'm going to sit through some parts of the show with Mom there, but I bet I'll manage somehow :)

    I have a Nikon DSLR and an Olympus Tough shock and waterproof compact camera. I love the Olympus and it is about all I take on most trips anymore. Being able to take pics on Kali and Splash (not to mention underwater in pools and the ocean) is so much fun, and I don't have to worry about it if it rains or I drop it. The photo quality is not as good as the Nikon, but the prints even at a 16x20 size aren't grainy, so it's not too shabby at all in that respect.

    Yes, you are right, it was SAT887! Yes, you must try it. I also saw the waitress bring out regular ice cream for someone, so if you hate it, I am sure she would bring you just ice cream. Lupa lupa is a "must do". :)

    We will have wifi at the house, but I don't know about a printer. We can just print at the airport. That is what we are doing tomorrow, since my laptop that connects to my printer is already in FL with the in-laws.

    Did you buy PhotoPass+? When are you going to turn in your voucher? I would like to have it for our Tusker House ADR, but I don't know if the shop in AK will be open by 8:20.

    We borrowed my Brother-in-law's Olympus Tough this summer when we went to WDW. It was great on all the wet rides and in the rain. We were able to get a really cool video of the big drop on Splash Mountain. We were sitting behind the kids so we were able to get their reactions.

    Unfortunately, my lovely DH lost it while we were in the lazy river at Blizzard Beach. He set it in his lap and then 10 or 15 minutes later asked me to pass him the camera so he could take some pics... I said: "Ummm, honey... YOU have the camera". We ditched the tubes and walked the river 3 times, no camera. Someone must have picked it up right after he dropped it. Not a good day. Needless to say, no one turned it in and it never made its way to Lost & Found... :confused3

    Sorry for the tangent - but it really is a great camera!!!!

    The sx260 is actually the one I have been leaning towards. How does it do in low light?

    I looked around after!!! I noticed Jamie too! I needed to sit down and chill out though too... We waited a while and my kids wore me down- especially after my DH was absent for golf this morning.... So I have about 70 pages to catch up on... Eeek!

    This may have already been answered but I'm not caught up on today's posts...
    A hair wrap is the colored threads wrapped around a small section of hair. You can get one at DHS near pizza planet, at AK near where Stitch is (and DVC). Some of the resorts have someone available to do them also

    So I got to chat with cybrkitn and her DH on the bus to DTD tonight :-)
    Total freak coincidence that I ended up standing right in front of where they were sitting

    It was great to meet you, Dawn!

    Need a bit of advice. I'm finalizing my packing and so is the girlfriend... She was asking me if she should pack anything fancy and I was kinda clueless as to what to tell her

    As of now we only have a few ADRs... Lunch at Le Cellier, Lunch at Liberty Tree and Dinner at Tusker House. We plan on hanging out at Raglan Road, house of blues and a few places on the Boardwalk (Brewpub, Jellyrolls, ESPN). She shouldn't need anything overly fancy for those places right? Whats the attire like at Atlantic Dance hall in case we head over there?

    Guys definitely have life easier when it comes to packing... A nice pair of shorts and polo and I'm good to go haha

    Thanks in advance!

    There is a lot to this camera that I need to learn. I've recently discovered the "fireworks" setting! I think it does well I low light but using a gorilla pod will help, too. I'll k ow more this week as I use it along with my Rebel.

    I did get the PP+. We'll be at DHS the first night before Our early ADR at CM....I can turn in the voucher at any of the parks, right? Also I'll need to get early tix pick-up at Guest Services. I assume the PP+ voucher is exchanged at a PP+ booth? That's two lines I'll have to get in and we'll already be pressed for time :(.

    Ugh! I'm afraid losing a camera while on vacation would really make me "lose it"! There isn't much I get upset about, but messing with my ability to capture memories in the form of photos...... :crazy:
