  • Trip Report Our 2010 DLR trip (in the making, and soon photos)

    About a year ago my wife told our 3y/o son that when he was fully using the bathroom we would go to see Mickey Mouse House (as he calls DL) I kind of thought it was a big reward but who am I to pass up a trip to DL?

    On his 4th birthday a couple of months ago he decided that it was time. I quickly planned the vacation for December as I had a little bit of vacation time left and I have never seen DL at Christmas time.

    He is super excited about going. We watched a disney movie last night and he was jumping up and down screaming "look it's mickey mouse house" at the start of the movie.

    This will be my first trip back to the Magical Kingdom since I was 6.. so 30 years ago. I have made a few trips to WDW since then but this will be the first of many hopefully with the family.

    I will try and post a few pics each day in the evening but the majority will be when we get home and the end of the week.

    Many thanks to everyone on here for tons of information about the park so I can get back up to speed on what to see and do.

    A special thanks to Hot Sauce 1 for the Photo of the Day thread and all the help it has provided as I get ready for the week.

    If anyone else is in the park this next week just look for the guy running around behind an over-excited 4 year old.

    So we made it in today. Not the best weather but heck we are from Seattle so on with the show.

    Most of the special events got canceled today becasue of the rain. We completly skipped the Candlelight Processional (cancelled anyways) and the fireworks were cancelled as well becasue of the weather.

    My oldest was rather excited.... he still needs some lessons in patience

    Here are a couple quick shots... it's late, I'm tired and should sleep. I think I took about 150 shots in the few hours that we were here.


    "Can we leave yet?"


    -waiting for the first ride of the day


    "hey dad...."


    -family fun on dumbo

          So I thought while I had a moment I would post a few more unedited images. I have been swamped since getting home so no time to finish this properly.

          Please if anyone has ideas for edits on the photos or comments please let me know. I am very new to this and need all the help I can get.


          ok so some editing here. My first try at spot color

          Is anybody home?????

          Maybe if I sit here long enough Mickey will come to the window

          Really.... What the heck is this

          I thought it would be a cool shot looking over his shoulder. looking through the eyes of a child. (thanks Hot Sauce 1)

          Whoa.... that was wierd..

          Hey dad... I wanna shoot.


          Reflections at night

          Christmas fireworks

          My wife took this shot. There is no editing (nope not HDR) Kinda a really cool pic

            These are great shots! Love the one with Mickey. Was he petrified or joyful to meeting the mouse?

              Absolutely petrified.... We did a character breakfast one of the mornings and he cried anytime a character came near him.


              This was the closest that he got to one.

              this was another reaction as we walked up to a character in the park. He was looking back at me like "dad... you got to be kidding right now......"

                Loving the pictures. You have a creative eye and great composition skills.

                  Thanks....

                  What can I do to fix the "grain" I see in most of my pictures? I look at yours and they are all so sharp and clear.... Most of mine look like I closed both eyes when I took the picture.
