    Not sure how within the rules this is so if it's a problem - mods please say...

    But we're coming to the end of our 3 week Florida trip and have been vlogging the entire experience, we'll be posting it all to our YouTube channel starting with a bit of a preview-

    I don't like Mickey Mouse.

    When I find him I'm going to pull his head off ! Mark my words.

    I really don't know how you done it, 14hrs straight, there must be some sort of medal you get for that lol!

    The new evening shows are amazing in magic kingdom. We watched them the other night and got shivers down my spine all the way through. My kids are big disney movie fans so I've seen them all too and they put so many movie bits in the show it's magical.

    Was really pleased to get this video (screenshot below) with Walt Disney/Mickey statue in the foreground and the projector show on the castle behind, not the best image quality or composition but a magical shot imo :)

    Screenshot_20170621-223640.png

    Again, not a great photo but a magical shot of my son. A rare moment with no pedestrians on the walkway but raging with myself for cutting off the top of the castle.

    IMG_20170620_225829.jpg

    And the AV geek in me trying to find the projectors. Found this beast in animal kingdom today. I reckon it weighs more than me lol

    Our feet hated us haha!

    The new shows are great but Wishes will always be special to me, it was the very first show I saw at Disney when I went with my family in 2004 so to see one of the last showings of it was great!

    I spotted a couple of those projectors in Animal Kingdom too, couldn't see the Magic Kingdom ones though!
