Well, the packing lists and last minute errands are in full swing around the NM household. We leave for the World on Friday, and we couldn't be more ready or more excited.
One of my favorite things in the world - and THE World - to do is to take pictures. I have thousands on my computer hard drive, and even though they are backed up, I still can't take them off because I love being able to look at them at any given time.
In other words, I'm attached.
Even when I edit or crop a picture, or change the coloring, or use any of the other effects available to me in iPhoto, I STILL save the original.
Ridiculous? I'm sure.
But out of this love for all things preserved in a JPG file, I have uploaded some pics to this blog that I thought might be fun for you all to identify. Some seem pretty easy peasy to me. But then again, everyone who reads this might not be the EXTREME Disney nerd that I am. And I DID take all the pics. But some might be tricky. They are taken in the parks and at the resorts, so to get ALL of them, you need to at least have done your Disney research and looked at lots of pics. Or paid attention to the details in the parks.
So post your answers, and try NOT to cheat!!! It's hard not to see other posts, but when you get to the comment section, scroll down REAL FAST until you get to the bottom and can post your own answers.
There's no prize for the most correct answers, but here's the scale.
1-3 Correct: Book a trip. ASAP. You're a Disney Rookie, but this can be changed with just a few more trips under your belt and some time on the DIS Photography Board.
4 or 5 Correct: You've been a few times, but you ain't quite a Disney nerd yet. (The jury is still our on whether or not that's a bad thing.) Stop booking your beach trips, or your trips to the mountains or the lake...or really any other place you'd spend vacation money beside Disney World. After you've spent at least three years worth of vacations at WDW, and brushed up on your Disney photo trivia, you can take that trip to Dollywood or Six Flags. They'll always be there.
(Or will they?)
6 or 7 Correct: You're getting there!!! Next time you go to the World, spend less time refining your itinerary and collecting FASTpasses, and more time smelling the flowers. And noticing the details. Take it from me...it's a great way to enjoy the World. Well, I would assume it is, anyway. I've never been able to pull myself away from my laminated and color coded Excel spreadsheet schedule long enough to try it out.
8 or 9 Correct: Congrats!!! You know as much as ZZUB, but not QUITE as much as me, LaLa and Great Biscuit. ZZUB may be the host here, but that doesn't mean he's the biggest Disney nerd. Biggest general nerd? Probably. But DISNEY nerd? I'm claimin' that for myself.
ALL 10 CORRECT: WOW!!!! You know you some Disney World!!! You've probably stayed in almost all of the resorts, visited most of the restaurants and ridden every ride that would let you on. No doubt you've taken out a second mortgage to finance your addiction, and Crocs, refillable mugs and Baggalinis (what the heck are those, anyway?) line your closet. Your AP is currently burning a hole in your pocket, and you have at least three trips booked, two of which you hope actually materialize. The marketing geniuses at Disney laugh daily at your drinking of the Kool-Aid, but you couldn't care less because you LOVE you some Disney World and plan on dumping your money there for decades to come.
