    Trip Report: Overcrowded, 30 degrees, we still had a blast!

    Hey all,

    Took over 300 photos this time and can't wait to share them with you including night shots, new hidden Mickeys (?), queue area shots, very rare photos, etc.

    Wanted to drop a quick line until I can get those posted...

    This past week was extreme. Temps down in the 30s at night and massive crowds. One day the Studios were so busy they stopped handing out fast passes for things like Toy Story. We're guessing folks took advantage of the MLK holiday and the 3 nights free like we did.

    Highlights: My 4 year old son's first trip including talking to Crush at Epcot, doing the Keys to the Kingdom tour, leisurely eating way too much Edy's Ice Cream under Walt's window on Main St., all the "Celebrate" birthday perks, and more!

    Photos to come!

    Hey Ashleigh,

    Thanks so much. Right now I use an affordable Canon Powershot, but I'd like to upgrade to a high end Nikon. For right now the Canon does everything I need it to do, and I don't have to lug a huge Howitzer camera around all day at WDW. (I like to ride rides too ya know!) I'd like to think I make up for the camera limitations with composition and (gasp) retouching.

    I have a couple hundred much more artsy photos with less mass appeal that I'm hoping to use on a few (non-official) Walt Disney World related merchandising projects similar to what you'd find in an Art of Disney store.

    Canons are great, but using them in low light is tricky and takes some practice. Thanks for your kind compliment and have a blast this Spring Break.

    I wondered what the crowds were like last week, but it was much warmer in my living room than heading out to check on the tourists. Glad you had a great time. Generally, fastpasses for TSM have been going early in the morning, so that's not a big surprise.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?
