MOON: I was honored with the task of picking a photo for today's post! I give you: the nutcracker.
JENN: Directly from Epcot's Germany pavilion in December 2008!
MOON: A telling photo of our differing physical grace.
This was my first solo trip with to WDW with Jenn. She suggested we go in the winter and I really loved the weather. It was perfect.
JENN: It really was the proverbial Great Time to Go - all the Christmas decorations were up but the crowd hadn't arrived yet!
MOON: Yes, the Christmas decoration was really lovely. All things considered, it really was a rather easy-going experience. Much different from our first trip in the summer.
JENN: I remember finding this nutcracker tucked to one side in Germany, and I started doing ballet poses because I am a dork. Moon took a couple pictures of me, then I made her try!
MOON: And we can see how well THAT worked out.
JENN: This photo is when a random guy offered to take one of us together. That's such a Disney thing! "Hello, random stranger, can I help you in some way?"
MOON: Too bad he couldn't get me to strike a pose, but I suppose one can't have everything while in WDW.
JENN: You totally struck a pose! That is a POSE.
MOON: That's what we will call it then.
Do you prefer winter over summer?
JENN: Mm... I think so. Yeah. The holiday stuff is nice before Christmas, and the crowds tend to die down in mid- to late-winter. Elizabeth and I experience the best Animal Kingdom day EVER in late January.
I always say that summer means you can definitely use the pool, but I almost never actually make it to the pool, so really that argument only highlights how little I know myself. One of these days I'll schedule a summer WDW vacation with an actual no-park day.
MOON: No you won't. ;)
