Speaking of Peter's pants, the 2009 edition of the Bulwer-Lytton contest has a cute Peter Pan reference. Go to http://www.bulwer-lytton.com/2009.htm and scroll down near the bottom (or search for Tinkerbell). Parents, you might want to look at it first since it deals with an "adult situation."

Share and Enjoy!


PhotoPass (be prepared to be surprised!)

Hi Gang,

In December of 2007, my husband and I did the Disneyland/WDW vacation challenge of going to parks on both coasts within two weeks of each other. Much to our delight and surprise, you can use your PhotoPass card from Disneyland at WDW, even though the design of the cards is slightly different, as apparently it works on the same system. Likewise, if you ended up getting one PhotoPass card at one coast and another PhotoPass card at the other coast, you can link them together (just like you'd do if you got multiple PhotoPass cards at WDW) in the PhotoPass web site so that you only have to order one CD as long as it is within the time before the earlier one expires. If it has changed in the last year or so, I'd love to know, but it has worked in the past.

The age limit for backstage tours has nothing to do with maturity levels, as Matt indicated. When I took the Backstage Magic tour, it was requested to have a state-issued photo ID so we could enter the backstage areas from outside the park. This was because we took a bus to backstage at DHS and MK, while we entered backstage from inside Epcot, and were already through security. The Guard boarded the bus and looked at everyone's ID and face before we were allowed to proceed backstage.

No idea why they would require it if you were already in a park, except perhaps to just be consistent from tour to tour.

My thinking is a state-issued photo ID is hard to get for one under 16 without considerable expense.

Lots of crazy laughing and giggling on this show.

I think you all were into the Maple Syrup before the recording. ;)

My vote is -> SWAN/DOLPHIN hands down. My wife & I have done this 3 times now and with the teacher discount you are paying almost the same as the Disney Moderates plus you are right there btwn DHS and EPCOT.
Even taking the location out, just the heavenly beds are worth it!
