    Re: Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

    We say the float on TV, my daughter (8 years old) loved it. Everytime they showed the little kid dressed up like a face character, my daughter would say, "Aww...that's so cute."

    It was a nice float

    I would add that Disney probably makes more money on out-of-town guests coming to WDW because many, maybe most, of them stay on-property. When I go to Disneyland I buy admission, food, and a few souveniers from the Disney company, but my lodging dollars go elsewhere. When tourists go to WDW, a much bigger number stay at the Disney hotels, giving Disney more money than they'd get otherwise. (Plus I believe the average trip to WDW lasts longer, which would again bring more money to Disney.)

    It is a little odd to see more ads for WDW than Disneyland in ARIZONA, though, since we're only a day's drive from DL...

    That was creepy! It was like every character had it's own mini-me midget.

    When the kid Cindy and Prince started dancing, I know it's supposed to be heartwarming, but I'm like "Oh mean, this is awkward."

    Here is the video of Remember When (the first 10-20 seconds I did not get). Tell me if it doesn't work, and I'll upload it somewhere else.

    I have a dream
    A song to sing
    To help me cope
    Trough everything

    If you see the wonder
    of a FairyTale
    You can take the future
    even if you fail...

    I believe in Angels
    Something good in everything I see
    I believe in Angels
    When I know the time is right for me...

    I'll cross the stream.... I have a dream

    If you have Windows Media Player, you can download the video here. (It is much easier going here than the other link)

    I tivoed it and just watched it this afternoon. Boooo for saying Disneyworld. Money marketing or not, show Walt some respect for god sake. When it's WDW's 50th are they gonna market DL more, I think not!

    So did anyone see the shot of the street light falling after a balloons guide wires got tangled up in it? A little girl had to get 9 stitches in her head.
    You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking.
