I looked up, and there was just one link left in my chain.
It could only mean one thing - travel day.
So I closed the door to my apartment room... http://media5.dropshots.com/photos/3...119/051827.jpg
...slapped on a bumper sticker... http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/181933.jpg
...and said good-bye to BYU. 600 miles and 9 1/2 hours later, we were home! Anaheim

The first sign of the holidays at the DLR is, by tradition, the wreaths on the parking structure ticket booths. http://media3.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/194256.jpg
My sisters are wide awake and rarin' to go. The one on the right is MiceChatter Jolly Trolley. http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...r90_194455.jpg
We were so early, we got to park in the Pinocchio area instead of in the structure itself. http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/194713.jpg
I thought this was interesting. The tram we walked past on the way to the tram stop had speakers on the corners of each section. None of the other trams we saw had them. I assume they would be used to tell off guests waiting for the trams to stay behind the yellow line, but it's just a guess. http://media5.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/194825.jpg
Work continues on, whatever is going on up there on the side of the structure. It's hard to see but there's a guy on this side of the walls. http://media3.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/194907.jpg
Dumbos. If you look closely, the pattern of reflected lights and wreaths are exactly the same on all the Dumbos; just the color of hat and cloth have been photoshopped. Interesting that the Disneyland commercial I saw today during the Macy's parade was the same snowman one from last year. http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/195025.jpg http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/195055.jpg
Good looking bunch, even this early! The others with us are my older brother and a very good friend of his. http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/195406.jpg
Ah yes, Enchanted premiered that day. I might go see it with Jolly Trolley, but it's not high on my personal list of priorities. Nice to see Princess Giselle before the parade, though. http://media5.dropshots.com/photos/3...r90_195941.jpg
The CALIFORNIA letters have been peppermint-ized. :) http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...r90_200053.jpg
It's eight o' clock, time to open the gates! http://media5.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/200039.jpg
After a dramatic countdown led by a few security CMs, the first guests of the day rush in. http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/200047.jpg
Look at 'em go! http://media4.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/201844.jpg
Jolly Trolley says: "Gorgeous!" http://media5.dropshots.com/photos/3...120/201932.jpg
It's still CostCo-licious, but I agree.
We've just arrived, there's so much more to go! Check back for Part II, including Fantasyland, Critter Country and New Orleans, as we continue our spectacular day!
