    Photo Pass Share/Getting Your Own Pictures

    I am part of a photo share that the final download is about to be done. Once the leader downloads all the photos in the dummy account, how do I get only mine? I would like to be able to put them on my own computer. The leader wasn't sure how I could do this. I tried to download the book by...

It...

    Soarin' Over America

    My friend sent this to me, she has never been to Disney but as soon as I watched it, I thought of Soarin' immediately and how this movie would be great as a "ride". It is a bit long, nearly 6 minutes and a few scenes remind me of Soarin. Of course it would still have to end down Mainstreet to...

    Entertainment Books $12 for 12 Hours

    Just seen this in my in-box so I am a bit late. If anyone needs an Entertainment book for an upcoming trip (Orlando, Aulani) or even at home they are $12. I know they have been cheaper but not such a bad deal. Here is the link...

    AK Question

    I am helping friends plan their Disney trip and we don't do AK very often and when we do it is pretty minimal.

    I am not Craig that is for sure!! And this isn't an old shot since it is from 2 years ago. However it is one of my favorite of both my kids and the Matterhorn behind it. I am horrible picture taker and this is probably one of my better shots.

    New Dooney's 5/12

    Not sure if anyone has seen this but for those who loves the Dooney & Burke Disney purses I read new styles are being released on May 12th. Although it seems from the article that they will only be in DLR and the Fantasy. I am a personal fan of the DL Retro pattern and have quite a bit of it...

    Saved On My Rental!

    We are 28 days out from our trip and I thought I would see if I could find a better rate for our rental during the trip. Since we are going for the 4 day Holiday over Thanksgiving the rates have been higher than I would like, but not too bad. I have been using for the last few...

    DHS Evening-November 25th

    A typical park day for us is RD at one park and then hop to another park for the evening. The evening park is always laid back and never about what we can ride. So doing DHS only in the evening is a new experience, so I have come to the experts here. We just visted WDW in June, this November...
