Part of me still wishes for things all the time...like wishing on a star.
I'm really looking forward to our trip, and one of the great things we'll get to see is a show called "Wishes". You can try an interactive show of the fireworks here: http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/wdw/entertainment/entertainmentDetail?id=WishesAMagicalGatheringsofDisneyDreamsEntertainmentPage

but I shall have to be satisfied for now with a visit to the EPCOT Akershus.
I made our reservation today, and we've secured one of the large banquet tables in the main hall of the castle. The menu looks pretty good, and I have read that the food is delicious!
Things are coming together and we're getting closer to our departure date.
Are you excited yet?

I just watched the tape, and I thought you all sounded great, looked great, and I didn't even sound like an idiot in the interview.
...and one last picture to remind you all how fabulous you are! Yay!

1977: At Disneyland's Frontierland, the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland attraction closes. (It will later be replaced by Big Thunder Mountain.
Incidentally, I read somewhere earlier today that Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was so realistic that a family of rattlesnakes tried to move in when the Imagineers finished working on it.
