All Ears Annual VIP Illuminations Party - December 5, 2010

On December 5th, Walt's birthday, the 5th annual AllEars® VIP Illuminations party was held. As has become our tradition, we watched Illuminations with the holiday tag in a private viewing area and then hung around for a little extra magic!

While the weather held off in terms of rain, it didn't let up in regards to the temperatures. This was one of the coldest nights I remember spending in central Florida...perhaps it dipped in the low 30s?

No matter, over 100 folks came out to celebrate with AllEars and enjoy the magic that is Disney at the Holidays!

This time, instead of the full sugar fix that is part of the regular Illuminations Dessert buffet, AllEars ordered something a little extra special; gourmet cheeses, berries, chocolate ganache, and mini dessert pastries including eclairs, baklava and fruit bars.

Special "Mickey" viewing glasses were passed out for everyone! At first folks thought it was hokey, but once the fireworks began the laughter filled the air.

Once the park cleared we were escorted into Future World for a surprise ride on Spaceship Earth!

We had such a good time. We loved the suspense of not knowing where we were going till moments before. Thank you for working hard to ensure everyone had a good time. We can't wait till next year.

Lorie:

What a special evening! We had a blast! Loved the Mickey glasses - we're using them for our light shows at home. Thanks Deb for the opportunity and Barrie for the photos. It was great to meet everyone.

Kelley Groh:

Too much fun! Mickey looked like a good sport taking all those pics! Merry Christmas to everyone on Allears! Thank you for all you do to brighten the day for a lot of people!

How could Barrie take the picture and still be in it? You got a remote there, Barrie?

Looks like a great time was had by all even if you all looked like you were at the North Pole and not WDW. LOL
