Our stitches experience in toon town

Just got home today from a fantastic 3 days in Disneyland/California adventure. Will post a trip report soon.

On our third day in Disneyland, we were just getting ready to leave toon town and grab some lunch when DD5 stopped to lift the dumb bell. She had her back to DH taking the picture, so I told her to go to the other side of it. Instead of going around it, she climbed/jumped over it, getting her foot hooked and banged her chin on the pavement (if you were in DL at 12:30pm yesterday, you probably heard her scream!) right away a CM came out of the toy shop and brought us to a shady spot to sit and wait for first aid. When they arrived, we were advised to take her to get stitches. So, instead of getting lunch, we got a cab and went to emerge. She was so calm, and only fussed a little when the dr took off the bandaid on her chin. 5 stitches and 3 and half hours later we were back in the park. We went right to pixi hollow since it was 4pm and we hadn't gotten tinker bell's autograph (when we went to see her Sunday morning we were told she was sleeping in, so we only saw periwinkle.) DDand DS fell asleep in the double stroller shortly after we got onto mainstreet, so we let them sleep while waiting in the 45 min line. I woke DD to see Tink, and she told Tink all about her adventure at the hospital. As we left pixi hollow, a cast member, Ivan, followed us and said he was sorry we missed some time on our last day and offered DD a front of the line pass to her favourite ride, so she chose splash mountain. We went to have dinner, since we missed lunch, and Ivan went and got us our pass and met us at dinner. He also surprised DD with a Stitch pin for being so brave when she got her stitches!

Being from Canada, I'm so glad we picked up travel medical insurance. I can't believe the medical bill! Luckily we'll get reimbursed.

I'm so glad the story ended well! I also had to have stitches on my chin as a kid, but mine were due to jumping BACKWARDS into a pool and hitting the concrete ledge with my chin. I much prefer your DD5's story.

On an unrelated note, when I saw the thread title, I mis-read it and thought to myself, "Wow, Lilo and Stitch are in Toontown now?" LOL!

Yikes! My daughter has also had stitches on the bottom of her chin... she was wrapped in a towel after a bath and fell off of her changing table. Wife just barely missed catching her and I'm pretty sure she still hasn't forgiven herself for being more than arms' length away.

That being said, when I read the thread title, I thought, "Oh, cute, she refers to her kiddo as Stitch... bet he/she's destructive."

Fellow Canadian/BC-ian here. Everything here on the other side of the border is big, including the medical bill, which is something that we Canadians don't get often. You are so smart on getting that travel insurance. I hope your DD is recovering as we speak. I am also glad to know you have received some extra during your trip despite what happened to your DD.
