You probably can guess what I am going to say first. To Lucas, Lauren And Ana Marlett, Jamee Smith, Claire Gregory - the official Where in the World agent, seeker of Troll names!, Diane Furtado, Lily-pierre Couet, Ashley P., Kerry A, Danielle Ciotti Harsley, Pam Tees, Christopher Hall, Patti, Kerry, and Jeremy Mccaffrey, Caroline Burmester, and all of you, my friends and the Players of Where in the World:
If you haven't seen it already or if you want to see it again (because it's that good), here is the holiday video from the AllEars Team who could be at December to Remember. That includes me! I'm the one in the red (Club 33 - that's right, I had to say it!) polo shirt in the beginning: Laura Gilbreath and I called it the Brady Bunch pose, which makes me Jan and makes Steve Barrett Cindy. I pointed that out to him. :)

Kelly, thanks for my wonderful holiday note from Mexico! Deseo que Los Tres Reyes darte todo lo que quieres esta Navidad en seis dias y Prospero Ano Nuevo!
The Patterson Family is in Disney World right now: I hope they remembered to tell Mickey I miss him. :) Wendy Barney, I know you are leaving soon; enjoy because like you said, it goes too fast! The same to you, Patti and Kerry Mccaffrey! Feel bad for me: I won't be going back until December at best. (I would say "Woe is me", but I know a lot of you are saying I haven't been there in years! :) )
Congratulations to Kyler S. who is moving to the Town of the Mouse in one month! Just like Deb Wills: a new Floridian!
Colleen and Monica Hatch (and your daughter, Monica), thank YOU for the great note!
Jeremy Mccaffrey, I am so glad you are here playing Where in the World and sending me notes!
And Shannon Thomas, you made it. : )
Here was last week's Challenge:
And here's the answer:

Say hello to Eeyore at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom! Yep, we were there for the breakfast buffet. :) He is holding a little Eeyore that belongs to my friend Carol Jayne. Later in the trip, I found a pair of mouse ears for him. Wanna see?
Charlie Scheer, I bet Eeyore says hello back to you. :) In fact, R Engel, could you ask Eeyore that when you have breakfast there this week? In case he forgets (because it could easily happen in the excitement - the parade, seeing the Castle out the windows), could you ask, Chris Kelly, in a couple weeks? Thanks!
Oh! And could you bring me back a Mickey Waffle, cheesy hash browns, and apple crisp? Because Jamee Smith, Clay Anthony, and Kelly Mager put me in the mood for them and where can I get them here? (I should have asked Santa for a Mickey Waffle maker.) Karen Smith just mentioned the cheese danish; could you bring me one of those too? If I could go right now, Jeremy Reichelt, you'd find me in the kids' buffet station! And we're not the only ones; they have good stuff there!
Yes, Ed Elder, I did take it this year when we were just there! At the breakfast buffet, Caroline Burmester. ;)
Mike Timmer wins a breakfast of thistles for the best Eeyore impression! "Looks like Eeyore at the Crystal Palace. Not that anyone would notice." HA!
Jennifer Harmon says she's not sure about going to Crystal Palace. Well, Jennifer, you can ask Brenda, The Peabody Family, Jamee Smith, Susie Howard, Betsy Silvestri, Kim Meyer, Danielle Ciotti Harsley, Becky Norman, Mary Jo Gallion, Angela Johnson, Lorraine Burmester, plus Danielle Quatrella, Lily-pierre Couet, Kelli Sangston, Clint Curfman, and Carol J (who also named Eeyore as their favorite character too), who listed Crystal Palace as a favorite spot. Carol Gamill even was there for Christmas morning in 2007! Like Danielle Sauthoff said, the architecture is beautiful and I love going there before the park opens: it means Main Street and the Castle all for you with hardly anyone there! Great time for pictures! And you can see the Castle from the restaurant as a great view.
Jared Orth points out that it is "right next to a parent's idea of heaven, (the baby changing and nursing center)." LOL!!
Plus, they sang Happy Birthday to Agnes Ciotti and gave her an autographed photo, so they can't be bad. Right? : )
Amy Schweizer, I felt bad when you said how much you missed your favorite dish at the Crystal Palace dinner buffet. So, to help ease the pain, I got you this - spaghetti and meatballs:
I hope that helps. :)
And Alan Mize rocks the entire month of December! Booyah!

That honor goes to: Diana Fitzgerald, you wrap up the year by being the final AllEars® Where in the World monthly winner of 2011!!!
Challenge #210: Where in the world is this?
It's the first Challenge of the new year! So of course, it has to be special. I bring you one of my favorite things from a Walt Disney World theme park!
Do you know? Do you have a guess? Please send in your answer, before the end of the day on Thursday, January 5th, by clicking on the blue box below. Please do not post answers using the Feedback Form link at the bottom of this post. Remember to be specific with your answer - just naming a park will not get you into the drawing.
See you next week, Players!
Everyone who sends in a correct answer to a Where in the World Challenge this month will be entered in a drawing at the end of the month for some special AllEars® goodies!
