Great photos! Looks like that new camera is working well for you! Love the one of the star above the castle!
Nice that you were able to treat Laurie to another ride on Pirates!
And Congrats on the cruise!

I agree with Dutch pics of The Castle and Fireworks are fantastic. Making me feel better about considering going to party on 2 nights. How nice of you to take get Laurie on POC twice in one day Especially after Mark tried to get his homey Grumpy to give her a lap dance Thank heavens she has more class than that. Good thing she didn't channel the Little Old Lady from Pasedena and member of the Anahiem, Assuzza and Coocamonga Sewing Circle, Book Review and Timing Association sides come out

First of all, congratulations on the cruise! I thought about you when the new itineraries were announced. That one sounds great and I'd be right there with you if I thought I'd be able to do any of the excursions.

So great to re-live this party night! I remember I was just happily scooting along behind you on the way to the tip board when you took a turn into the Pirates forecourt. I think I said something like, "We're doing Pirates again? Wheee!" The icing on the cake! It was wonderful to meet Regina and I hope I get to meet up with her again sometime. The castle pre-fireworks show was amazing, as are your photos. We had a great spot, too. And the parade is still to come!

My apologies again for not making the meet. My family time was not going so smoothly that night. Sounds like a wonderful time and my big regret of the trip is not meeting all of you.

Magic in the med sounds wonderful

I want to be you when I grow up. All the trips you get to take! The cruise sounds amazing! I've always wanted to visit Turkey. Cool!

Another journey on Pirates, yay! I've thought the same thing about the photos on the castle show. I suppose you'd need to be right up front to see them well. Fantastic fireworks photos!!

Whew! Well, it took me an entire day yesterday while home with an ill DD, but I did it...I read your entire trip report to date...and I'm exhausted! I love your trip report so far! I agree with a previous poster...I wanna be you! I would love to be able to travel as much as you. Maybe one day we'll get there. Congratulations on booking your cruise!

You're photos of the fireworks are just beautiful! Holiday Wishes is a great show, and the new castle show looks great too.

The new show on the Castle is fantastic! I was pretty amazed by the first one--but this is ten times better! I thought of all of you when I rode Pirates on Monday!
