Disney World Vacation Tip

The holidays are unique, special and magical at Disney World but if you don't like huge crowds and long lines I "don't" recommend it as your Christmas and New Years destination. I can however recommend a fairly recent feature at the parks called PhotoPass. Instead of photographers bugging you trying to take and sell you a picture, the PhotoPass photographs wait for you at various photo-ops around each of the parks.

The first time you have your photo taken, you receive a Photopass card with a magnetic strip. When you get your photo taken again you can just hand your card to the photographer and they'll link your new photos to your collection online. Most of the time our photos were online by the time we crashed in our rooms for the night.

In some cases, like above, the photographers will have your party pose in a particular way and images will be added in during processing. The Photopass locations are typically at great spots where you can have your photo taken without other guests constantly walking in front of you.

Special thanks again to Deb and my favorite "unofficial" Disney World information web site, now called AllEarsNet®

May you find Peace this Holiday Season

If you’re a regular visitor you may have noticed a lack of posts recently because we were away on a much needed vacation. We’re back and slowly getting back in sync with the time zone here in Scotia.

I’d like to take this time to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas,  Happy Hanukah, Festivus, Mele Kalikimaka or what ever you call your celebration this month.
