Me too! I was completely fascinated.

I do believe it is - I haven't done a ton of research on the FL one, but from what I have glanced at, it is. There are often coupons for that one too!

Love the World of Color pictures too! I so really want to experience that in my lifetime
Yes, I believe they are glued down, perhaps even nailed down somehow? It's amazing how much detail and work goes into it all!

World of Color is FANTASTIC. I would love to see some sort of version of it at WDW too (there have been rumors, but we'll see!).

Geoff was looking over my shoulder when I was on the Star Wars pictures. He said, "did someone recreate Hoth in their backyard?!" No. Not quite.

And I can confirm that the Fairfield is a good choice!
I know, isn't that hilarious?! I thought it was so cute.

That's so funny about Geoff!!!!! Was he ready to buy a ticket to visit that person's backyard???!

I think we will try the Fairfield next time, if we don't get a great deal on a Disney hotel/have DVC points. I love the location!

I want to stay there too! LOL I need many trips to Disneyland...! When Henry is a bit older and into the water parks, we will have to try it!

Fairfield Inn, that sounds familiar...I think that might be where we stayed the two times we went. It was so easy to get to the parks (but really, there are a ton of "offsite" places that are so close to DLR).

Cool pictures of World of Color.
The Fairfield is basically right across the street from Disneyland, so I wouldn't doubt it! It's one of the closest. Are you guys planning a return trip anytime?

DS was too short by an inch and they stick to their guns on height restrictions as well as Disney. I was, of course, sitting in a wheelchair with my ankle in a boot doing nothing. That dragon ride has different level of torture (oh, I mean speed). DH did the gentle cycle with DD but I know he wanted to go all out. I was watching some other adults and they really got whipped around pretty good.

Mimi's was great for breakfast. We headed there when we stayed at the HoJos in 2008. We have a Mimi's not far from our house. Love the Cobb Salad! It is my go-to each time I go there.

And I can totally attest to the Howard Johnson's being a great place to stay for those who don't want to spend the $$$ to stay on property. It's a short walk and we had a wonderful, clean room. They were redoing the pool area the year we were there (for the splash/water park) so we only could use the quiet pool, but even that was really nice.

You guys had quite the long day at Legoland. Henry did really well hanging in there all day waiting to shop!! It helps to have the places the kids can build and play to break up the day a bit.
I didn't know that about the Dragon ride! How fun!! If/when we go back, I'll have to try it.

Another vote for the HOJO! Glad to hear it!! I'd like to try a few of the offsite resorts someday.

Henry did do really well with everything - he was begging ALL DAY LONG, but overall was good! He forgot about the shopping for bits and pieces and I was grateful for the play zones that helped him feed his need.
