    Hey, we get snow in the desert all the time. It looks as though the snow just cant decide where to “stick” in Cars Land LOL!

    Is the model (toy/model) home under the Christmas Tree on Buena Vista Street one of Walt’s California homes? If my memory serves me right it looks like the home they were living in when Walt got his girls a playhouse in the backyard for Christmas.

    I love the idea of meeting Santa in the Mall on BVS. PERFECT! Kudos!
    Side Note about the Roundup: Maybe they’ll move Santa into the Cabin when the weather is poor.

    AHHH *sigh* I remember reading that update about Toy Story Midway Mania & Snow on the Castle as if it were yesterday *nostalgic*

    Congrats on the 5 years. I love your updates. Looking at all these decorations, makes me want to go. Hopefully I win, and my dreams would come true.

    I think the thematic break of having characters that weren’t in existence yet are forgivable. It makes it more fun, and most visitors to the park aren’t educated enough to realize the issues.
