    I remember there being a Design and Display T in W event last year. I was so excited waiting to hear a review of it – and found that because photos weren’t allowed – that no one did! Very disappointing. Even without photos I’d love to hear about this event! Please someone review it!!!

    AJ — any way you can use your magic to find out the date of July’s TIW event? We’ll be visiting WDW in July and I would love (actually, looooove!) to attend a TIW event.

    I know this is really going to sound cranky, but I would like to vote against “deets” becoming a word in the English lexicon. Is “details” really that much longer to type?

    Apparently I’m becoming old.
