    I have never seen this. My friend's son sang in the choir. She says it is beautiful. I would love to be there for a couple of those speakers.

    Same here! I loved him in LA Law.

    As the dining packages can't be booked until July, do they keep some restaurant places back just for this? I've already tried for Le Cellier and can't get in for Christmas but it's on the list with this package so might try for it.

    Just decided in the last 24 hours to go down for the procession. Man, I should have bought an annual pass this year. This will be my third trip in 12 months. Is there an extra cost? Where is it? Do you have to make reservations? Thanks.

    It is held in America Gardens Theatre in Epcot. There is no cost if you go to the standby line, but folks in the standby line are seated after the folks who purchased the dining package are seated. I haven't seen the prices for the packages this year. In the past they have had 3 different tier levels for various EPCOT restaurants.

    That's a shame!

    We saw her last time and she was great. We're seeing Trace Adkins this year who I've never heard of but I'm sure we'll still enjoy it.

    Trace Adkins is a country western singer. Don't care for his music but when he was on Celebrity Apprentice, he was awesome. Great personality and the others on the show had great respect for him. Trace came in second to Piers Morgan whom I think is a putz!

    The girl in Beatlejuice. She was also in League of their own and the mom in Stuart Little. Her series was COMMANDER IN CHIEF where she played President of the United States. She is also a very accomplished archer. She was on the Olympic team and competed.
