    I finally got some pictures posted after 4 attempts, so I didn't want to jinks it by adding any text. These pictures are from our first trip to WDW this vacation to attemd MVMCP. I wore my Santa Mickey ears to be festive this year. The year I bought them I wore them to stay warm.

    After going to POTC, we sort of got trapped in Frontierland at a restaurant. We took pictures with Bullseye and feasted on cookies and hot cocoa to wait out the parade.

    DH saw the big "C" on Casey's and he thought Main Street had been hit with a congestion charge. (That's an inside joke for the Brits.)

    You can take all the pictures you want of the castle, but they won't do it justice - especially if my family is taking the picture.

    DH missed taking a picture of me dancing with Bullseye, but at least he got us after the fact. Some friends took a posed photo of which I hope to get a copy.

    Tomorrow - the parade!

    The problem with having a really good lense on your camera is that if you have a spot close to the action, you tend to get really really close pictures of your subject. The parade was fantastic. We sat right behind a family that had won a night in the castle suite. I am still hoping that they come to DWT and tell us about their stay. No, I didn't dare take pictures of the family. They were being protected by the cm's and I was really intent on avoiding "Mickey jail" for the evening.

    I wanted to note (while I was thinking about it) that the fee to drop off your bags at DTD for Virgin Airlines flights has doubled. It used to be $5.00 per person. It's now $10.00. When we dropped off our bags on New Year's Eve, we were a bit later than usual. I think we usually get there by 9:00 AM, and we arrived around 10:30 AM. It took us about 90 minutes to get checked in.

    A quick recap, so you don't have to go back and read earlier posts. After our night at MVMCP, we went to AK. We had dinner at the Yak and Yeti and drove to the Floridian to see the decorations there.

    I didn't take as many pics in the restaurant as I would have liked, but at least you get an idea of the decor.

    When we left the restaurant, the park was closed. It was kind of exciting to be inside a closed park. Of course there were plenty of cms along the way to make sure we were headed OUT of the park.



    A tripod would have come in real handy about now.

    The Floridian was our final stop for the night.
