Make Mine A BLT with Some MVMCP, MK, AK & More - A Short Solo Trip

This is a report on the first of three trips - Nov, Dec, and Jan. The backstory is in my WDW Trifecta PTR ( will post a link later).

I left the house at 9:00 am for a 2.5 hr drive to WDW. Had to stop at the first turnpike plaza about 30 minutes away to get this pic:




More to come - Mickey is waiting for me to get there

Thanks, all.

It's almost 6pm and I'm getting ready to head back to the party. I came back to the hotel for a very short break and to pick up some camera stuff.

Saw quite a lot today - crowds were very low. Looked like more people were streaming in for the evening, though.

The few photos I've popped in so far are all from the iPhone, but I took lots with the real cam today. The one above was supposed to be this one:



Planning to get something to eat and stake out my parade spot. Will try to provide an update later this evening. The real TR will come in a few days, but it's fun trying to upload some "almost-live" stuff.
