It is, but luckily I had a trip coming up that I was able to look forward to.

Red? I guess that makes sense.

It did end well. I liked having the arrival and departure days be non park days. Seems like we had more than 3 days in the parks... but that is all we had. And the last few meals were yes indeed very yummy!!

WOC is a must see!!!

You were just an updating machine today, weren't you?

Your last day sounds wonderful, and glad Steve got to redo some attractions with you that he missed earlier.

I love all the various family photopass pictures; and all of that food looks so yummy. How did you like World of Color?

As always, loved hearing about your trip.

I figured I best finish up this report. I had written the text portion a while back so it was just a matter of fitting in the pictures. This means I can start a new TR or PTR without feeling like I have something I am neglecting. I think having 2 or three going at a time is a challenge for me. I know some are able to handle it though

I am glad I got the photo pass. Even though the plus was a bit of a pain (but no where near as much as it was in WDW this fall) I am glad I got it.

The food was pretty yummy. Some was not quite as good as in WDW..but it was better than I remember it. (except for the Tigger tail... nothing compares to the original)

WoC was very cool!! VERY cool. I just wish that in DCA or DL they would have stadiums or theaters for these shows rather than standing up and around things. Even fantasmic there is done like this... just gathering around...not getting seats.

I am glad you enjoyed this TR.... maybe I might do one for fall. Who knows. I have been back now for almost 2 months.... aside from my memory fading... maybe it wouldn't be the best of TRs to do.

Wow! What a lot of updates!!!

I am so stunned with all the pics. DL looks way different than we remember. I am one who REALLY misses the California letters by the way - they were so cool.
I guess I will have to pick your brain A LOT once we start planning our 2014 vacation.
The Nemo ride looks like they really squeeze in people. We did the original submarine ride and I don't remember it being so small.
Sorry Indy was down. I quite like that ride too!

PLUS .... I am very pleased to hear that you are planning to do a PTR. Hope it is for February!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup, lots of updates. I really figured I had to get this done

DL looked different to me too... But also very much the same. I just figured it was my perception - remembering more wdw and so it looks different due to that. Maybe not if you too think it looks different.

I think the letters were donated. I think that is pretty cool.

The sub was a tight fit.... But more for my 6 + foot tall guys. For me once I was down the stairs it was fine.


And yes, I am thinking of doing a ptr for feb. I have the resort booked- just not airfare...

I was a little nervous about being claustophobic on that right also, but I lucked out. Don't know if it was the luck of the draw or a insightful cast member, but I was placed in line so that I was the last to board. I'm 6'4" and a tad heavy around the middle. Even with a camera bag, I had plenty of room.

Maybe That was it. We borded very close to the front if not the front. I can't remember. We had to wait while everyone else loaded. It wasn't too - we survived

Holy Mega Update which I will have to finish tomorrow.

It think its cool how a lot of the queue are outside.

I definitely don't think I could go in that submarine. It looks WAY too claustrophic, although the underwater views are wonderful. Is that man who is holding his face having the start of a panic attack?

Strawberry lemonade - yum.

Splash Mountain single file - I like that.

Oh - I so want to go to DL. I still have to read the second update but have to go to bed. I was trying to get once last quick read in, but yours isn't quick.

I actually am not sure I like the outside queues. I think it makes it hard to get out of the elements....

The sub ride is pretty short... so it is doable. The underwater view is kinda fun. I just wish there was a bit more "Nemo" to it.

Single file on SM and on the Matterhorn use to bug me a bit when there was not the divider. Who wants to get real personal with their neighbor? I also think SM has a longer drop in DL... but I could be wrong.

Glad you were able to read a bit... take your time getting back to the rest if you want... I am sure this isn't going anywhere too soon.

OK - decided to finish up this morning.

Love all the PP pics of Zoe and the entire family. Also love the one where she is posing with the hat . Too cute.

Carsland - have to see it!

WOC - have to see it.

Darn - I have to see both places. It really looks so cool.

Oh - and the food - yum, especially lunch on your last day.

Can't wait for your next TR.

DLR is so close for me ( compared to wdw). In theory, I could fly down and back in one day and still have a pretty full day in the park. WDW is my favorite though. It is much more immersive. DLR will never be able to be than completely due to it location. Don't get me wrong- once inside the park the outside world does still melt away. I could just do with ought the panhandlers right outside the entrance.

That being said what they have done to DCA (in my opinion) is quite amazing! I am sure I have said it, but I am not at all a cars movie fan. No one in the family is. Yet we all LoVED cards land!

The food was more impressive this time than it has been on previous trips. Kinda wish there was a real dp... And not just vouchers for meals (that I think you en up losing money on rather than saving)

Glad you enjoyed the tr... As for another... I am close to starting one for my most recent trip to wdw (only 2 months after returning). The trip was amazing in many ways but ended up with me losing a friend so it will be a bit emotional for me to write and I will have to try hard keep those details as objective as possible. Hence why I have not yet started.
