    I just got off the phone with Diane and Dave and they are having a great time :thumbsup: They did a manatee swim and she said that there were literally hundreds of them and yes she has pictures :yes:

    They've also done a dolphin swim and in between I think they've managed to do Disney :lol:

    They are doing a behind the scenes tour tomorrow at BG and then Dave is going fishing and she's going to go play with those big fuzzy kitty kats that she she loves so much :D:D:D I'm sure she'll have lots of pictures of lions and tigers and well....everything when she gets home.

    It was so wonderful to talk to her and they sound like they are just having the very best time!!!!

    Parks were closed (MK) to new guests yesterday, not sure yet about today, or about Christmas day.

    It's chaos, to say the least. Traffic was at a near standstill on the approach to Christmas (the 23rd, heading into WDW area on I4 from the WEST) and was crawling yesterday (eastbound) on I4 heading toward Disney...

    All pilgrims head for the Mouse...

    Well it's not the usual experience of visiting WDW, that's for sure. You can't plan on doing any attractions or even getting food from a counter service place with any ease.

    You have to make your plans on a different set of expectations. :yes:
