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

Hmmmmm... wonder how much the daily rate is....
No what a minute - I don't wanna faint.


Ok......the "ground rules". I will pop in here and there these next few days but will edit when I get home and also attach pics to each posting.


All I can say I WOW! This is one cool adventure & it's only a few hours old.


Maldovo picked me up from LAX and the 3o min ride was just a beautiful way to get accalamated to the area. And what an area it is!.

So far I have visited Mels, the Disney soda shoppe and the Kodak theatre.
Took a zillion pics so far and some video of the Roosevelt hotel. the streets are filled with tourists and what nots with the temp today being in the mid 70's.

It's 3pm now (east coast) & we are supposed to meet up for our meet and greet in 1 hour.

One of the guides is Kristin (my twin) and both of them come across as very sweet and very personable.


Ok....been real - I am off and running again. Gonna to see one of the Roosevelts' rooms.


Up NEXT:


having fun at the Meet & Greet, misc & WOW - love the LA Scene....
WOW - I can truely tell I am at home with this.

....with the unoffical word for the day being:

WEMBLY


.....After boogying on back to the Renaissance Hotel around 3:30pm, it was a quick hop in the shower & to get ready for the Meet & Greet.


meet alot of wonderful people and had fun playing Disney Trivia contest.

Anywho - the meal was veal w/potatoes and veggies.

Around 7pm, dinner was breaking up and I headed off for madam Tussauds. While out, I had a blast taking a few pics of Legally Blonde wannabes & such before heading back to the Disney soda shop around 9:50pm.

made it back to the hotel around 10pm w/a quick shout out to all of you. Quick note - pay close attention to LA traffic laws.


All right- its been real - cYA Next time - pics will be uploaded when I get back into Texas.



UP NEXT: Worries for another day at the Jim henson studio.

Smile Worries 4 another day & what's up with the weather 4 tuesday?

.....and the unoffical word for the day is "F.N.N.N."

that and inneracting with dem "Legally Blonde" wannabes is "totally" priceless.

Anywho -


these are just cryptic notes for me to correct and enlongagte out when I get back into Texas and I will also upload pics onto the threads as well so please dont worry.



So - finally got to bed around 11:3opm and 3;30am came around b 4 I knew it. I tumbled out of bed and threw on yesterdays clothes and went out for a long walk to the Canyon Run" area - its about a 1 1/4 mile up the road. basically turn left out of the hotel and anopther left at the light and walk about a mile down the road & u will see it. There there are places you can jog and what not and you will also see a wonderful view of the city and what not. Great pic taking place I sugest. Just ask concierge foir more info if necessary.

Anywho -

gopt back aorund 6am and threw myself in the bathtub for a hot bath. get to know housekeepiong as they will really help you with toilteries and such. Me? I use 4 bottles of hotel shampoo in my daily baths as it really helps me to distress after a "long Disney" day.

I meandered up to the Twist area (2nd floor) of the hotel for our breakfast meet but before I enjoyed that (AT the Disney soda store), I just had to have 2 Dr peppers and a nestle crunch bar.breakfast was a 8am

And while at the soda store, I just had to nibble on 2 huge mickey waffles, scrambled eggs & eng muffins and........3 glasses of Dr pepper.


Hmmmmmm.....after about 30 minutes, I was wired and ready for the day! Ineracting witht the other adventurers was no issue for me as I don't feel that would be an issue for anyone on nay subsequent adventures. this is a fun trip.


Breakfast was fun - got hit up with Disney trivia so be sure and brush up on yer trivia. The subsequent tour of the El Capitian theatre was a total blast. NO - they dont sell a cd of the organ music but......if ya camera video tape it, ya go around having to go on line to buy it. Have the web address if ya wanna buy it and will post it next week.

the el Capitan theatre was breath taking and I could tell a lot of work really went into it to restore it. So anywho - after that, we boogied on down to the jim henson studios.Ok........I was in just in heaven there! Great place and loved talking to "Lawrence" the muppet for the day. Ok...just a tip, ya gotta know yer Muppets to really enjoy tis leg of the adventure. Seeing all what I saw just really blew me a way, I could tell that .....well......lets just say that while we were there, We say Joe Jonas........YES -


**** I SAID JOE JONAS! ********


and yes, we got our pic taken with him!!!!

TTOOOOOOOOO COOL !!!!!!!!!!!


and whiole I had a mouth full of food (during lunch) guess who walked by at the Henson studios???


RANDY JACKSON!!


So - ya never know who u will run into on this adventure.


During this day, I had fun asking the front desk person at Henson who ran the Skexis character u will see at Brian's office. He re[lied that it was a combo of a person inside as well and muppetry. Just an fyi for all you Muppet fans.


I also was just full of ? today as today I really felt I was in my element. Both the guides picked up on it as fun was shared by all.


************* oops!!! I am developing amnesia!!! ************



suddently, It's 5pm and I am quickly thumping this out. So whats up for tonight???


More of checking out the radio disney song "Fabalous" wannabes - just pay attention to cross walks!

and I will be checking out Pinks & a late showing of Alice in Wonderland.


In short, lotta walking today - great food and a great atmosphere - this is an adventure I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to be immersed in Disney history 101.


UP NEXT:


Hitting the shopping phase of this adventure at Mic keys of Glendale and what not and hmmmmmmm....DL stays open until MIDNIGHT....so me thinks we will be having a blast ON>>>>>>>


SPLASH MTN

and my first reaction to stepping into a magical land I have never seen before.


TIP 4 THE DAY: Bring plenty of video cards with you & the Disney Soda shoppe - NOT TO BE MISSED. Just be aware that the atmosphere changes quite a but after 1opm on the streets.not saying bad just different.

Now that they are at Disneyland, the days and nights are packed with fun. By the time you get back to your room you just fall in bed. I can't wait to find out the "new" experiences for this year.

Looking forward to your final report!
