I will be sure to post pics when I get my shirt too!!!!

I have some news......................very exciting news......................now we all now by now that my love for Disney is something that has spanned over many years. It is only now that in my working adult life though that I have been fortunate to visit the place where Disney magic happens............the USA!!!

One of the things I have always wanted to do is visit the El Captain theatre in Hollywood. So, I just happened to check their website tonight ( I have it in my favourites ) to find there was a special Halloween screening on for a limited time of none other than......................

THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!!!

So what did I do..................I got tickets of course

My beloved Jack in all his glory and in Disney digital 4D!!! Yes, 4D!!!! Complete with snow, wind, fog and more according to the poster!!!!

So, we are off to see Jack and Sally and Zero of course on Saturday 27th October in the front row of the balcony section.......VIP's!!!!!!!

I really feel so lucky that we will be able to experience so many special things on this trip With the movie and the Walt Disney archives exhibition, plus all that Disneyland has to offer, we truly are blessed

I have booked us on a bus that will arrive in Hollywood at roughly 10am. I am hoping we will have enough time to visit Madame Tussauds when we arrive and then our movie starts at 12:15pm. After the movie, we will have around 2 hours to check out some stars, do some souvenir shopping and grab a sundae at the Disney Soda Fountain store! What a great day out!
The bus picks up at 4pm so we will be able to complete our day with a fun night in the parks......................magic

I hope the next 46 sleeps get here soon!!!!!!!!!
Ooh, which bus service is this Minnie Sue? I've been looking online for something like this as last time we were over there we booked a "Hollywood tour" to get a chance to see the sights and what not. But we didn't really like it because we only got 45 minutes in Hollywood to do some exploring. Alicia and I are really hoping for a full day to explore!

Ths company is All Anaheim Tours. It does a pick up from loads of hotels in Anaheim and it claims to arrive in Hollywood by 10am. It drops you off and then the return is at 4pm. Plenty of time to look at the stars, do some souvenir shopping or visit Madame Tussauds or catch a movie at El Captain!!!!

We did the Hollywood tour too and would never do it again. Just too too rushed

Hi out there in cyber space

Time for a catch up!!!!

So, I have done our ESTA's and we are now ok to enter the USA They last for 2 years too so will cover the next trip

My shirts have arrived that I have had made and I am sooooooo happy with them, especially the foolish mortals one..........







The Disigners on the boards here are just soooooooo clever.

We are still waiting on the Snow White costume to arrive. I am hoping it gets here soon just in case we need to do any alterations.

I have checked out the Harveys bags and oh dear, I do feel there may be one retuning here to Australia in my suitcase!!! Especially as I have seen there is a Nightmare Before Christmas set

I have our packing lists all ready to go. I also have been adding things to my "to buy" list as I have spotted them. There is a Minnie Mouse set of OPI brand nail polishes that I want to buy and I have also found a Minnie Royal Doulton 3 piece dinner set that I would love! I also came across some board games - Jenga, Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit in Nightmare Before Christmas...........the Monolpoly has been something I have wanted to get for ages! I will be on the lookout for all those things on our shopping trips!!!

And here is a little something special I thought I would share with my loyal readers.......................

DD has a very, very special Minnie Mouse whose name is Girl. She was given Girl for her very first Christmas and she is that one special toy that has been by here side since then. She accommpanied us on the last trip, in fact she even hijacked my Trip Report and wrote her own post!!!! If you have not read it, you should take some time to have a read and then you will really understand how special this mouse really is!
So, Girl is getting a little worse for wear and I have been worried about how she will manage on another long trip. The last thing I want is for something to happen to her, DD would be devastated. Well, I came up with an idea!!!!
I am not took sure if you all are familiar with doll accessories, but some dolls have a sleeping bag that you can get as an accessory! So, on to eBay I went and found some flannel pink Minnie material and had it shipped over from the USA! Then, I found a lovely lady at my work who has a Mum who is a wonderful seamstress..........................well, you can guess how the rest goes!!!

I am going to give it to her on the day we fly out at the airport. It has become somewhat of a tradition now that DD gets an "airport" goodies bag. I have lots of things like notepaper, pens, playing cards, cosmetic cases etc all Disney themed of course!
And..............Girl is going to get her own airport bag too!!!!

This will be much better for her to be carried in and not so much wear and tear hopefully! I can't wait to see it when it is finished!!!

I worked out today I only have 25 more work days left................

More soon and thanks ever so much for reading

39 sleeps to go!!!

The shirts look great. My maleficent shirt came in the other day. I am now looking for a maleficent horns headbands to wear.

Which Nbc harveys bag are you looking at getting? I am so glad that girl is getting her own bag. I wonder if she will highjack this tr too. Looking forward to your trip.

Hi Minnie Sue - I don't know if you have one near you but check out Big W - they currently have some cute Minnie Mouse clothes (t-shirts, jackets, shorts) and accessories (hair pieces, sun glasses, small bags) for pre-teens! Not sure if your daughter is past that age though, might be a bit childish but always worth a look Your trip is getting closer, how exciting!

Your DD is so lucky having such a thoughtful Mum If you're really worried about Girl's condition, have you thought about taking her to a dolly doctor?

I love your new shirts, and I can't wait to see your Halloween outfits!

And congrats on the ESTAs too - always good to know that you'll be allowed into the country lol!
