This year, it is in town 4 weeks before we go to The World. I'm currently worrying (more than I should) that going to Disney on Ice will detract from the Disney experience since my son is Mickey Mouse obsessed and has never seen the real thing before. If he sees him (and all his friends) right in town, it'll be less special when we meet them at THEIR house.

or maybe i'm just over thinking.....HALP!
IMO, you're overthinking it. If it's something your family enjoys and doing so will not make you suffer financially, then I say go see the show. Seeing and meeting Mickey and his friends at their house (or vacation home, as we call it) is still WAY more special than seeing Mickey and company on ice from your seats. DS first met Mickey and some friends at a DVC party here in our neck of the woods, and it did nothing to detract from his first meeting with them in the parks.

Got back from the Keys a bit ago. Nice trip but no diving. Winds were blowing from the east so conditions were bad. No need to shed tears, we had fun.

While I was in the sun I was glad to hear everyone made it through the storm OK. I posted on Facebook this picture of the Pirate Princess Pirate that was taken at the Animal Shelter where she volunteers on Saturdays. They got between 12-18 inches on campus. She had a great time playing in the snow even if her Northern classmates were perplexed with her infatuation with the white stuff.



Rediscovered a new favorite restaurant. Their steamers were great.






Right on the water with lots of charter boats and pelicans

Also went to a restaurant on the Bay side for my UK friendís pre 60th birthday.






Not a bad sunset


Outside the hotel room. Banana daiquiris to be?

All in all a good time. Wish the diving conditions were better. Warm thoughts everyone.

Very true, not holding my breath. At least pics like this can soothe the pain

They probably thought why someone would voluntarily leave FL. Why don't you fly me down for a visit and i'll make you a banana daiquiri.

I"m with James. If you can afford and enjoy it, then go to it. My dds saw princesses on ice and it in no way detracted from their WDW experience.

You can use Disney characters. I think they are a little pricey. Good luck.

I made cash as a teen cutting grass. Now, I guess the lawnscaping business take all that money. Or, are teens just lazy?

Free food is always a great win.

The only thing holding us back from booking the lion king is that it seems to be substantially more expensive than the others. Does anyone have experience with any of these shows?

We saw Lion King off Broadway last year and while it was still great, the NYC show was phenomenal due to the scope of the animals they use.

I agree with the Lion King suggestions! Amazing show!

Evening Gents,

DS's middle school JV team won again tonight to run their recorn to 15-0. The regular head coach is back tomorrow so I can now safely sit back with my 8-0 record as a basketball coach.

Middle school provincials are this weekend followed by the district championships. This weekend could be tough as we are in with varsity teams from some smaller schools.

Not sure what your thinking, but if you feel this is the right decision, I guess I will accept your decision.

I just challenged DW to the Happy Haunted 5K which will be going on while we are there. I won't be up the the Twilight Zone 10 miler by then. Plus, I'm not thrilled with the idea of starting a run at 11 pm.

Norm you up for it?
