Disney - we couldn't resist

December 18, 2011.  Our group was finished on Saturday but we were staying for the extra day of Eukanuba because our good friend Bobbie Wood was nominated for Breeder of the Year.  She already had the honor of representing the Non-Sporting group for her years of commitment to the Lhasa Apso breed.  That ceremony wasn't until late in the evening before best is show so we had the whole day free.

Sawyer looks like he wanted to sleep in.

We were so close to Disney it was hard to be in the area without actually going to a park. So we decided to spend the day at the Magic Kingdom.  Kevin and Pat were staying at Fort Wilderness in their RV and they were kind enough to let our dogs stay there while we spend a few hours in the park.

Fort Wilderness is always all decorated for Christmas.  It fascinates me that people bring all these decorations in their RV and deck out their camp sites.

This is one person's site!  Where do they store all this stuff??

They even have blow up decorations on the roof!

We took the boat over to Magic Kingdom from Fort Wilderness.  It was a little chilly but a beautiful day for a ride with our friends, Pat & Kevin.

It's nice to take the boat over.  You get to see the Wilderness Lodge.

The Contemporary and the new DVC Bay Lake Tower.
The Grand Floridian.

We only had a few hours so we just tried to hit a few of our favorite rides.

Pirates of the Carribean.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Haunted Mansion.

Mickey's PhilharMagic.

Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor.

Stitches Great Escape

Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin.

They are in the process of building a whole new section behind Fantasy Land, which will double it's current size, and re-doing Toon Town.  The new castle will be Beauty and the Beast related.

It was starting to get dark so we had to leave to meet Pat & Kevin, grab a bite to eat and head back to Eukanuba to watch the breeder of the year cermony.

The lights were all on at the campground.

This one is a truck with a whole compartment that's decorated with a tree and fireplace inside.  I wish I had my good camera out for this one but this was taken with my phone.

They even decorate their golf carts. This one is Minnie, complete with waving hands.

It certainly gets you in the Christmas spirit! 

A quick bite to eat and off to Eukanuba.  Unfortunately the facility is so huge it takes us several minutes to walk from where we're parked to the ring so we caught the end of the breeder of the year ceremony.  Bobbie looked beautiful.  She wasn't selected but she's a winner in our book!

The next morning it was up early to start the drive home.  We originally intended to stop overnight but decided to push through.  We arrived home at 2am with only a few days to prepare for Christmas.
