  1. I remember reading the original report and being so amazed about everything and the excellent, engrossing narrative (humorous, touching, joyous, overwhelmed, excited, and sad (when it was time to leave!))...the excitement of Ruston being the Grand Prize winner, the unbelievable invite via the group phone call, the creative Mickey Hat invitations and "secret" code to get in, and ALL those WOW moments that came so unexpectedly (e.g., Good Night Kiss button, After Dark tour, etc) Reading the condensed version on MiceChat was a total joy, too, and just brought back memories of what I read earlier (unfortunately, because I now get motion sick really easily I couldn't do the 360 deg view (gave me that vertigo feeling from the past)...I tried but would get a little woozy and had to stop; instead I just focused on the still photos...good thing there are a lot of photos in both the original and condensed reports!) Truly a magical stay at the Dream Suite. Thanks for sharing that magical time and letting me (and countless others) experience it, along with the emotions of the moment through your words and photos!!! EOM

    1. Thanks! That report was a long time in the making. Even though I had a lot of the words written, it was hard to decide what to put in the condense report and still try to convey all the same feelings.
      I even had to work extra hard again on those 360 photos, because the original software I used to make them doesn't exist anymore, and I had to redo them all and find a new place to host them. Re-writing it, and also checking back in with a few of my friends, brought back a lot of the joy and good memories.
