31 (Day 365!)

Too cloudy for a great sunset but it works... Watching the sun set on 2009.

and stayed closed for most of the day but the other parks did not close at all (unlike previous years when 3 of the 4 closed off and on all day..)

Hidden Mickey!

Happy 2010!

Runner Up #3 (I KNOW you smiled or laughed when you saw this even if you won't admit it!)The end!

Runner up #2

Runner Up #1

and my favorite picture of the year (at least in this moment but any of the last 6 count!) as it has 2 of my favorite things and shows (at least to me) how much I've come to master my camera in the last year.

The statistics-
Apparently I spend more time in the top part of the world, as the most "Pictures of the Day" came from there.. Magic Kingdom: 19% of the time (or 70) Work/Contemporary 18.5% of the time (68) followed in order Resorts (37) Epcot (37) Merchandise (32) Studios (28) Other (25) My Stuff (20) Disneyland (18) DAK (16- REALLY thought there was more) and Monorails (14-also surprised!)

I took more than 8,000 pictures with the majority being Disney and have loved sharing them with everyone.

This was supposed to be a picture of my supposed-to-be-done scrapbook for 365 but I had more fun "feeding the trolls" on one of the sites I read that I didn't anything past May finished (But Jan-April are 100%) but I do have all the pictures printed up to yesterday so that is something...

And the countdown continues...

Beyond the tree ahead is well a tree... So I was surprised to hear that Animal Kingdom "closed" due to capacity (not surprised at all the other kingdom did) for several hours... and very grateful that the only park going I shall be doing this week is working.

and the so-not-going-to-be-accurate-countdown as I realize how indecisive I am on choosing just 10 but for kicks...

6- The return to the new normal- July 5th watching the 'rails start to fly again..

So I learned a new "skill" today while working a shift at the Studios... Prepping ornaments for personalization.. envious? Don't be.

And the countdown continues:

The final countdown starts...

and in honor of the last week of 2009 I present my top 10 favorite pictures of the year...
10- July 4th Fireworks

9- Animal Kingdom

The view from the bus stop. I give the Bus transportation team a 10 out of 10 when leaving parks and 9 out of 10 overall so far this week. I have been impressed.

Happy almost Christmas from the Hollywood Studios (Where for the record I lasted 1.5 hrs till I went back to the hotel- I'll hit the parks again in January!)

You don't see anything here. Trust me :)

I like the ride but 100 min at 10:30 is CRAZY!!

Greetings from Old Key West

It's now officially Christmas as I have seen the soldiers march down Main Street

Family Picture time (well part of the family anyway)

My kind of snow

It wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be.. but it was no 'Twas the Night'

I forgot about this show... Cute

The park was soo crowded today I didn't do much but had fun taking pictures

Celebrate again while waiting for the parade/fireworks

I really am not a fan of Spectro but it did waste time while waiting for the fireworks tonight...

So I saw the fireworks. They were good but not only did I miss the 3 min chunk (of my fav part no less) but the show I saw was very scaled back from the christmas party version (No perimeters nor was the castle "iced" for most of the 'works)

Finally made it to Epcot today- Overall it was pretty but I'll say it- I miss Lights of Winter and the "snowballs". Candlelight was great as usual but the park was CROWDED (Had to wait in line for Spaceship Earth!- Soarin was 140 minutes!) even the vending areas had lines..



The house was pretty from a distance but whoever thought it would be a great idea to randomly glue cheap candy all over needs to be thunked as it was TACKY!

I miss the old windows- Wonder why they changed :(

Candlelight! We had the "didn't wait in line for 3 hr seats" ie the first standing row so once it ended I did the dash up and photograph...
