  • [Pictures] November 2006 poto TR!

    Pisces inspired me to post 2 very late TRs, one from November 2006 and the other from November 2007! Yes, there late ~ but they are photo TRs!

    I'll start with November 2006: My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Grand Californian, and we went to our first ever Micechat meet! I was slow in posting TRs because of what I call "Evil Forces" that were working against me... SD card that contained more photos of the meet went bad, etc, etc... Anyway on with photo TR!


    I was greeted on Main Street with this:



    Noon meet 11/26/06:








































    It's me!





































































    I like this one...

    That's it for November 2006, I had a blast as usual... It was also nice to finally meet some MiceChatters: PezLightyear, AKADisneyFan, JudiMouse, Moorigoon, Wolfy & Wolfette, Darkbeer & Al.

    I will post November 2007 as a separate TR as soon as I upload the photos... Hope you enjoy the TR as much as enjoyed the Trip!

      2006 was a bit different from 2007, at the Resort.

      2006 was the year when you'd find last bits, remnants that they hadn't removed yet from the 50th. Even as late as November 2006, I think you might have been able to find souvenirs at Emporium/WOD, on discount, left over, from the 50th. I could be wrong, though. But it did seem just a slight last bit of the 50th was lingering in the air, November 2006.

      2006 the Grand Californian Lobby Tree was decorated differently from the 2007 version. 2006 had those birdcages. And, of course, the room remodel at the GCH....with the new TVs, armoires etc... was just beginning to take shape.

      2006---Goodbye Green Meadow (sniffle) . I don't think there's much of a Green Meadow left at GCH now.

      I believe November 2006 was the very last time they ever did the third Fantasmic at 11:30 pm. Maybe even when you were there ! I think it was that crazy Veteran's Day weekend. Again, I might be wrong and someone will correct me, but I don't think there was ever a "Third Fantasmic" in all of 2007.

      And, of course the Castle changed radically from the 2006 Holiday version to 2007's Holiday.

      It's fun to try to catch all the subtle changes from one year to the next.

        Evil Step Mom,

        I know it's kind of weird a photo of someone's lap and feet... I just remember when I took the photo (accidentally), Judimouse saying "It's OK, they like pictures of shoes..." So I included it... Sorry...

          Pisces,
          I agree about all the changes. In November 2007 our GCH room had the new armoire and flat screen TV ~ which we heard being installed in 2006... Very loud. The halls were also littered with the boxes. Now every time we hear a similar sound my husband and I say "Must be installing 42 inch flat panel TVs..."

          I have to admit it will be strange this November seeing the new Disney Vacation condos... Anyway, it shouldn't impact my trip...

              No worries, I just thought I might be missing something profound....
