I have just spent my entire day at work reading your TR! So much of it resonated with me (we took our only DS to DL in Sept/Oct 2011 when he was 4 - he turned 5 on our last day there - and he was scared of a lot of the same rides as your DS).

I intend to show him the pics of your brave DS on the go-coaster, as we are going back later this year and would really like him to go on it! (We made the mistake of taking him on Space Mountain on our first day in DL and he HATED it, so much so that before every ride after that he would ask "Is this a roller coaster?"!)

Looks like you had an absolute ball - well done for recording it all in your TR. I love all the food shots too!

Oh, I yearn to go back there - it's going to be a loooooong 7 months for us!

What are your dates for your March trip? It looks like we are going to just miss each other. My dad and I head down on April 1.

Ohhh, an offsite adventure?! I'm intrigued!

Ok I am finally caught up!!

LOVE the Legoland pics & MiniLand-WOW.

Poor Henry looked so scared on the coaster. I thought you were going to say that he did not go back on. He did look much braver when he went on the second time.

Love all your NY Christmas pics.

Ok ready for more now...

I just got caught up! Yay!!

First of all, your little Henry is absolutely adorable!! What a cutie!

Secondly, those botanical garden photos are AMAZING!! How long have they been doing that?

Thirdly, what kind of camera are you using? Your pictures are fabulous! Especially the one of you and Henry on Gadgets go coaster. I am impressed your DH was able to get such a great shot! That thing goes so fast and has so many twists and turns!

Has it been THREE months?! Honestly? Time has FLOWN for me, I swear I did an update here about a month ago. I'm sorry. I LOVE writing these TRs, but time just completely escapes me! I have two weeks until our next trip, so I am determined to finish this so I can start on a new one.

James was in a robotics club last year and they used those Lego Mindstorm's for the robots. We thought about getting him one for Christmas last year, but they're so expensive that it would've been his only gift so decided not to.

I enjoyed the Disneyland updates too, and the miniature buildings at the model train thing you went to looked amazing.

Congrats to Henry on conquering his first coaster!
Oh my...I'm going to have to find a robotics club for Henry when he's a bit older - for Joe! Joe talks endlessly about the Mindstorms and how he can't wait for Henry to be old enough for them. LOL!

In your case though, it is in fact very neat that Henry got such one on one time! You don't see much of that with handlers around.
Yes! We have a blast in both Toontown and Bugs Land! More of that is coming up soon.

I really enjoyed there being no handlers - but it was January and the parks were fairly empty. I'm guessing even when it's a tad busier it can be chaotic like you said. One time a family totally budged in front of EVERYONE, that was a tad annoying! If it happened regularly, I wouldn't have been too happy!

Well, since I'm 3 months behind on my own TR ...how was your trip? I hope you all had a great time! And yes, I bet you are right that it was the blonde with the smirk!

YEAH!!!! Glad Henry loved Gadget's Go Coaster!!!! It's always great when something turns out to be a success!!! The only time's I've seen no handlers witht he characters is when the crowds are huge!! But once the crowds hit expect someone to be with them at all times!!

Oh and DH just agreed to go to Legoland on our next trip!!!! We're getting a deal where we bascially pay for one day this year and get one day free next year!!!! So excitied and Jeremy is going to be in heaven!!!! What little boy wouldn't be when he's immersed in everything Lego!!!
That is FANTASTIC about Legoland! You will all love it! We are entertaining getting to the Florida LL sometime later this year. We just have to see if it will all work out like I have the plans going in my head.

I was SO proud of him! Since then he's conquered the Barnstormer as well. I'm hoping we get a few rides in on that baby later this month!

Henry conquered Barnstormer in October and loved it too. I'm hoping he still likes it in a couple weeks! He isn't so keen on the big ones yet either, hopefully soon! I'm also hoping he'll do Test Track.

I was so proud of him that he tried it. I always try to encourage him to TRY things, just once. He's a bit of a timid kid, so sometimes that is more difficult!

Henry did look scared on the coaster! He must have loved it to go again. I'm so impressed with Toon Town in DL!
He LOVED it! He still talks about it! Toontown is incredible, so many fun little details!

I love the different NY holiday pictures too!!
I am thinking Alex might be a touch bored as well. The rides, as you can see, are very kid-focused. There are a few coasters (tamer ones), and a couple water rides that I'm sure he would enjoy - but overall, he might get bored quickly. Does he still like to build? There are the "imagination" areas and doing some of the big-boy Legos, like the Mindstorms, might interest him more. Perhaps you can each take a child and attack different areas of the park? Regardless, look for coupons if/when you go!

Loving it all- only on your first full day- and have to run, but in case ten million of your fans have not told you yet- you are AMAZING with Henry, and don't worry- sooner than you can imagine, he'll be draggin YOU on rides YOU are afraid of!!!

Thanks for keeping me company on this snowy day!
Welcome Ellen! As you can tell, I don't get on here much anymore either. It was good chatting with you via Facebook the other day too, I hope we are able to meet up in a couple weeks.

You will LOVE Disneyland! So many amazing details. It's just fantastic. Love, love, LOVE it. I wish I could say we were definitely getting back there this year, but I don't think it's going to happen. Good move on avoiding Legoland with your boys - Knotts is more their speed. How FUN that you get a night solo too!!

Thank you for the sweet words about Henry!

Oh gosh, yes, you know how it is first hand! There are still people recovering here, I just cannot even imagine losing EVERYTHING. Makes me stop and count my blessings.

I was very excited to read your report to help me get ready for my trip. Thanks for all the details and explanations.

I am a little worried as I have no idea what we are getting ourselves into as I have not been to DL in over 20 years. Reading your report and looking at your pictures really helped a lot.

Have a great Disney year and enjoy your upcoming trip!
So glad you found my report and that it helped! I hope you had an amazing time! I know when we were going out there it was a bit strange - I had done some research, but not a TON. I wasn't 100% sure what to expect, so I wanted to bring home some details for everyone!

Toontown in DL seemed more elaborate and thought out in DL than it ever did in WDW (although I did think it was cute in WDW but I like what's there now better), it really does feel like it's own land in DL.. and the Roger Rabbit ride is really kinda cute...... I think they used to have a Jolly Trolley there... there are still tracks... Do you know if they decided not to use that anymore?

Hurray for your March trip... & 11 days to boot...
Yes, Toontown is much better in DL than it ever was in WDW! It truly is a full scale land in DL, we spent quite a bit of time back there, but even still skipped over a few things. I've heard the Roger Rabbit ride is very good, we didn't do it-next time!

Nto sure about the Jolly Trolley, I didn't see one...might have to Google that!

I hope my TR helped in the roller coaster department! Gadget's is a great coaster for kids - it's got zip, but isn't too scary and is SHORT. So it's all over very quickly just in case he does hate it. Later in the trip though I convinced Henry onto Big Thunder Mountain... BAD move!

Thank you for reading!!! Yes, we do have a DSLR, it's a Cannon XSi - a model from a few years ago. It's a great camera for both manual modes and automatic. We generally leave it on auto for vacations-it's just easier. We recently bought a zoom lens for it, and will be buying a new lens for our upcoming WDW trip. The kit lens is pretty much "meh", but it fit our needs fine as we mostly just use it for family pictures and not professional photography! But, it finally broke, so we are on to bigger and better lenses!

He was so scared at first, but determined! I'm so glad he enjoyed it! Can't say the same for a ride later in the day...

I am TOTALLY impressed at the shots Joe got on Gadget's! I tried to do the same when Henry rode with Joe...um ya.... I have NO clue how he did it! We have a Cannon XSi. It's a few years old, but a great camera!

Girl on a Mission

When I left off (last year!), we were exiting Toontown. I was a girl on a mission.

Where to, you ask?


Through the hub




Through Fontierland (and if I remember correctly, there was some filming going on here, so we had to back track a bit)


Wave hello to the cowboy - but keep on marchin'!


Oh! That's where we ate the other night! It was too dark then to see what it really looked like.


Nope, not here. I've heard this is good though.


The line for Pirate's stretched out of the building this morning. But like WDW's it always moves fast, so it doesn't really matter.


New Orleans Square! We are almost there!


The band is fantastic, but don't linger long...


So pretty.


Here we are!


YES!

So for anyone here that knows me, what did I cross the park for?

If you guessed



You would be correct!

Mickey shaped beignets.

Of course if you guessed "coffee", which would be an excellent guess, you were also correct.


These were VERY high on my to-do list and I HAD to try them. Years ago I had beignets in New Orleans and fell in love! I will be trying them at Port Orleans French Quarter on our upcoming trip too!

These were quite good. I was a bit disappointed the the powdered sugar basically missed most of the Mickey's and there wasn't nearly enough - but, still good. I was a happy girl.


Henry had no shortage of powdered sugar; however.

The seating area at the French Market was nice and quiet. A musician came out when we were finishing up.



Once we had devoured our little Mickey shaped beauties, we decided to adventure through New Orleans Square, since the only time we had been back there was at night.

Glancing out to the Rivers of America - we are in New Orleans Square, Pirate's of the Caribbean is behind us, you can see Frontierland along the riverfront. Just to give you a sense of the park!


More coming soon...I'm determined to finish this before our next trip!
<-- from Henry!

You were a woman on a mission and I can certainly see why. Beignets! I love 'em! I used to make them fairly often when the kids were little. Henry looks so cute with the sprinkles of powdered sugar all over him.
