    Well, at least you tried!! I have tried so many times to get people to come skating and they all say "i'll be there" and never show up, so good for you! i always encourage ppl to try skating

    Gosh how I miss hockey...
    i dunno, i guess when u grow up in fla and ppl find out u've figure skated ur whole life they just look at u like ur the biggest idiot out there. that's cool you played hockey, i love hockey! sounds kinda weird that a figure skater would love hockey, but i do. hate those grooves ya'll leave in the ice tho!! but i'm sure ya'll hate the holes we leave hehehe.

My 1 yo DS screams "Again" and claps at the end. She is going to lose her frickin' mind when we see it in person in a few weeks!
    I would give just about anything to be standing next to your when she sees the castle light up in person. (That way no one would pay me any attention as I lose my mind when I see for myself.) I just viewed the video you recommended. That's probably the best version I've seen thus far. I wonder what type of camera he uses? He had to have a tripod which helped a lot too.

    I think that it is probably too good for my computer. It's very choppy on mine. And I can't use youtube because my internet server has it blocked. Does anyone know of another place I can watch this video?

    What a shame. I couldn't get the other two choices to download, so I had to go to Youtube.

    Thank you for my new wallpaper! I picked #2, we saw the castle last week, everyone stopped dead in their tracks as the castle went on, nobody moved.

    Oh well, I guess I can wait until the week after next when I'll be able to see it in person. The suspense is killing me.

    I have a HUGE problem! We have reservations at Crystal Palace at 5:10 and I really wanna see the show. My DM called and the next available time is at 8:00. Do you think there will be cancellations at the last minute? My DM also said that I go outside and see the show while they're eating. Can I see it from Crystal Palace (indoors or out)? I've never been there before.

    Thanks!

    You could probably go outside and see it. The Cyrstal Palace (in case you don't know) is just off of Main Street and Adventureland, so you could at least hear the show and see the lights come on. I think you would be a little too far to actually see the show (unless you bring binoculars). If you can't make it to that particular show, try to come back and see it, you do have 7 days.

    I'd keep those resie's and walk outside, the show isn't long and the music and the casle lights seems to grab the crowds the most. It is so packed the odds that you'd be able to get closer to the stage without giving up a great deal of touring time isn't in your groups favor. You're in a great spot to see the castle. We watched from the Tommorowland bridge which is about an equal distance on the other side. You've got a great dining time.

    I am glad you liked them, thanks also for the comment on my site. I have a few others I'd like to get up, I just haven't learned to do it myself yet (and it will be time consuming when I do).

    I would take the 8pm reservations. That way, you can see the show and enjoy the lights - then have dinner, and go to the fireworks after that. If you get there 15 minutes early, you should be able to get closer to the stage (if not during Christmas week), and the crowds seem to disperse quickly after that. I like getting photos from there when the sky hasn't gone black yet.

    The show is maybe 10 minutes or so long - worth seeing from close up.
