If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Smile People watching while out in Hollywood & a weight loss compliment - OH MY!

Breakfast on the last day has been at Storytellers within the Grand. It is a buffet breakfast with the characters. So, maybe they will give you a voucher for breakfast in the park, or something else? I think they accomodated people who have to leave on a flight very early so just maybe they will get you taken care of. Doesn't hurt to ask.

Looking forward to your trip report and what they have in store for this year! Have a magical Disney time!

I figure by the time "I get done with those 2 ABD guides," they are bound to be like Maria (one of the guides on my just completed "Spirit of America" adventure) & refer to me as their 'walking billboard' when it comes to all things Disney.
Per se, Maria & I hit it off just well as be both had a blast kidding one another along with some gentle teasing. It was all in good Disney fun and yes -

I feel that I will fit in just nicely (being a solo traveler) with the group as there are 4 other people traveling with the group who also do not have children.


You know, you bring up an excellent point as I am beginning to bring to a close all what I have been doing (behind the scenes) and beginning now to focus in on just watching in amazement this adventure unfolds in front of me.
I still have a few more things to wrap up before I go as at this 11th hour, I just e-mailed someone out in Hollywood & asked him for any other suggestions in where to go to people watch &/or eat. Gotta love it - he's out at the Oscars tonight just a mingling with all those movie stars!


***** I AM SOOOOOOOOO JEALOUS **********


So depending on his answers, I may drop going to Madam Tussauds wax museum the afternoon/ evening of day two.



Anywho -

About the Aladdin movie.....


That's a wonderful and well put together movie!. I enjoyed watching the dvd and am also wanting to see the musical (at DCA) on the early pm of my day 6. But hey, I am getting ahead of myself here....

Glad to see you are enjoying my trip report(s). I like doing them and when done, I put them in a scrapbook sort of a photograph album; complete with park maps, what nots & other assorted whozits - kinda a nice way to preserve wonderful memories of a really cool adventure.




Now, about that comment a co-worker made to me today:


She told me that I need to either buy smaller clothes or quite losing too much weight!

With that, I threw back my head and let loose a BWAAHAAAHAAA cackle of a laugh as she replied a "What's that supposed to mean?" reactionary comment.
Then I showed her that picture of the Mickey Moused shaped rice krispy treat as I said that I want one of those on days 3 through 6 of my adventure (ok.... & combined with lots of Dr Pepper or a milkshake).

You should have seen the look on her face.

I then followed up with telling her about Pinks (evening of day 2)- as I FINALLY decided on having a "Three Dog Night" which consists of:

3 hot dogs, wrapped in a giant tortilla, 3 slices of cheese, 3 slices of bacon, chili & onions.


There is more to what I will be ordering (including to go) but hey, you know what they say about a picture being worth a thousand words



....and with that, she let me know that looks like I am in for a rockin' good time out in LA LA land & DCA/DL. but hey......Pinks just could be just one stop of a few - depending on the answer I receive from the e-mail I sent out a few days ago. Details forthcoming....


To rope drop or not at DL? Well, I am still riding the fence on that issue. It's one of those "depends things" that I am going to have to play it by ear and see. I know! Don't ya love it! Me the perpetual Disney planner & I am stumped on this issue. There is more to this but all I can say is "Expect the unexpected" when it comes to my Disney adventures.
Besides, the ABD guides might just catch me off-guard and do something that will catch me totally off balance.....




So to wrap up here, I plan on finishing packing no later than this upcoming weekend (put me at about 12 days out) as I detest last minute packing, Ladybug gets dropped off at "her hotel" 24 hours prior & all that's basically left for me to worry about is what to order at Cracker Barrel the am I depart 4 LAX.

....unless I get a e-mail from "America's Sassiest Lifestyle Guru" letting me know his opinion on what's up out there in the land of that great big 'ol Hollywood sign (he's in Hollywood but the radio station I listen to here in Dallas Texas has him on the air in the am).



UP NEXT:

On a quest to find the nearest "Cracker Barrel" near me & just where in the world can I say hello to Mary Poppins & Bert? Are they also at DL or DCA? Can some kind soul please advise?

Will partially explain why in my next installment...
