Just read the DLR portion of your report! Silly and brainless me didn't know you had gone, I thought you were just going to the Jonas Bros concert (and if you told me you were going then I'm even scarier with the brainfree part).

I did not know that Chuy was short for Jesus. How did I not know this?

Sorry you got so sick!

LOL at those "myspace" type pictures of yours...you actually look like Robert's Korean relatives with your hand gestures...

For a second I thought it was, but Jenny has a son so unless she was toting around someone else's daughter (it appears to be a little girl next to her), then I guess it is not Jenny!

What kind of camera do you use, Courtney? The nighttime pictures do seem to come out pretty well. Is it a point and shoot, or what kind is it?

I noticed those Teacups were much faster two weeks ago - even with mild spinning - than they were the last time I had been on them in 2000. I used to be able to take some spinning but they have sped them up to the point where even a little is a lot!

I love the Scary Teddy! I also have JUST begun to notice the popcorn carts and the various critters and characters spinning the popcorn inside. See, that goes to show - no one person ever notices everything when they go to DLR. We all see new things (to us) every time, even if these things have been there for 50 years, and just 2 weeks ago was when I started to look inside the popcorn carts and saw the Oogie Boogie spinning and thought to look inside other ones! Mariezp got a picture of Santa spinning the popcorn for her TR. I didn't take any pictures of them, but NOW I know better for the next holiday trip!!!

As you know, I like Naples too - even though I ordered the same pizza on both visits and it was different each time! I find their food to be very flavorful and tasty - certainly the portion sizes are great - and the service has always been good for us. I have been surprised when I have read about other folks who have been there and hated Naples! Not even just mildy disliked it but HATED it! Isn't it amazing how different people can be in the same location and have a totally different experience and view it in such different ways?
Hola Sherry!!!!!

The camera we use is Jesus' brother's. It's a Casio? It's a point and shoot! I really like it because it takes good night pictures. I usually take my Mom's Canon P&S and I hate it because the night shots come out horrible. That's the camera I took to the JB concert and you can tell the quality is different.

Yeah! We enjoy Naples a lot! It seems like a lot of the DTD restaurants people either love them or hate them.

Hi Molly!!!!

Yah! Chuy! Jesus' family on his Dad side calls him Chuyito (little Chuy) since his Dad is Jesus too. I just call him Jesus, lol. When we were coming through the turnstiles the CM scanning our APs said Happy Birthday to Jesus. Looked at his AP, looked at his Button and said "Uh, I thought your name is Jesus?" Jesus said "It is, but Chuy is short for Jesus" and then CM just looked at him all confused. It was kind of funny!!

Peace signs are so Asian. Jesus has smaller, slanted eyes and when we both do peace signs and squint our eyes we look like total Asian tourists...

People think I'm Korean sometimes....

Disneyland - Day 4

Omg. An update! Hi everyone! So today will be the day I FINALLY finish this TR! And you want to know why? 1) We already have another trip in February and 2) I royally am horrible at TRs and keeping them up. So this needs to be finished so I can start the PTR for my next trip!!!! (Uhh.. What happened to all the smileys? ---> They're all mixed up now! )

Okay... Ready.. Here we goooooo.....


Thursday, December 4 - DLR Day 4

So today's plan was to eat lunch, do a little shopping and go to DCA and get some corndogs to take home. This is usually our plan on our last day before we head home, but the same thing always happens every single dang time. We get sidetracked and end up leaving when the sun is setting. That is a no no! Hello? Someone (me!!!) needs to go to work the next day! So we were on a mission to leave the park before 2. Did we do it?

So we got up early and packed our things. This was checking out of the Hojo day. And while I was getting ready, making sure we didn't forget everything and running around like a mad woman, what do you think Jesus is doing?



If anyone said watching football. You get 2 points.

Oh and I made these for the Housekeeping to leave their tip in. Cute, huh?



One last shot of the Matterhorn out our wonderful view.



So I call the front desk to check us out, Jesus takes everything down stairs and packs it in his car and we just drive to the parking structure.

We got to DL first to grab some lunch and just check everything out. I wanted to take a trip to Fantasyland first so we made our way to the castle. But we were sidetracked (ha!) by this wonderful band.











So after they were finished performing we made our way through Fantasyland and out the back towards Big Thunder Mountain. We then passed this very big headed cowboy. Jessie is there too, but you can't see her face.



We passed the Mark Twain.



Passed the Golden Horse Shoe.



Pass the Rivers of America (anyone guess where we're going yet?).



And we also passed (but I didn't take pictures of) Pirates, HMH and Splash and made it to our final destination....! Hungry Bear!



Yes, we're hungry.



...CONT...

Can't wait to hear the rest!

YAY for another trip in February!!

Disneyland - Day 4 Con't

So we ordered our food and tried to find a seat upstairs, but they had that section towards the back (and of course where we always sit) roped off, so we went downstairs to sit down there. While we were trying to get settled these guys were making a
ruckus.



I never knew Br'er Bear was a bad guy until like 2 weeks ago. I thought him and Br'er Rabbit were BFFs. Duh. I guess I don't pay attention during the ride huh?



I have no idea what the fox is doing right here.



Okay! On with the food porn. Jesus ordered the bacon cheeseburger with fries and I got a regular cheeseburger with apple slices. We also ordered onion rings and funnel cake to share. I don't have pictures of our burgers, but here's our funnel cake and onion rings.



After our meal we said goodbye to Disneyland. And made our way to DCA. On our way out we saw the Goof.



I like this weather for DLR the best. Overcast and cold. Snuggly!



First we had to make a stop for me.



We then walked to the castle in DCA... Duhh. Corn Dog Castle!



The poor Sun Wheel.



So I really REALLY wanted a pickle before we left. While Jesus was in line buying 12 corndogs, I walked alllll the way over on the other side by Bug's Land to go get myself a pickle. On the way I took a picture of TOT. I was briskly walking and trying to take a good picture, hence a little blurry.



AT LAST! A pickle! Okay, we can go now!



So we left.. Us on the tram back to the parking structure. I was really crying inside...



I'm not sure what time it was when we got on the freeway. But there was loads of traffic. And it took us forever to get home (not an hour!).

Here's Scary Teddy waiting for us to leave the parking structure.



And this is the last picture. A picture of LA while we were stuck in traffic.



I hope everyone enjoyed my TR!!!

I was just about to say NOooooooooooooo!!! It can't end yet! But then I remembered you are going to DLR in February so there will be another TR soon! I had just replied to your post over in my TR, but then decided to stalk you over into this thread too!!

I also noticed the smilies are all reorganized and nothing is in the place it was before.

I agree with you - I love that cold and gloomy weather because it is fun to bundle up at DLR! I just love DLR during that whole December period of time. There is nothing like it!

I chuckled at the picture of Woody and his giant head!! And Buzz lightyear had a small head and giant shoulders!

I have never eaten at Hungry Bear - or if I have, I don't remember it because it was so long ago. I have heard mixed reviews on the food, but what you said you guys ordered sound so good right about now. A burger, some onion rings and funnel cake! Yum!

Oh, and by the way, I think that the little envelopes you made for Housekeeping are adorable! I am sure they really appreciate when someone takes the time to make something a little special for them and personalize it. That is a really sweet and thoughtful thing to do! It's more personal than just leaving a five dollar bill on the table by itself!

Anyway, hurry up with this February trip so we can get a new installment of the TR with new pictures!!

Hi Karen!!

You have to eat at the Hungry Bear! We really enjoy, but I've heard a lot of people don't really care for it...

For February!!!

Hi-ya Sherry! I know, I'm sad this TR is over. I think that's why I was lagging.

I'm excited for February!! I need to call the Hojo and make reservations this weekend. So like today!!

I really like the Hungry Bear! So does Jesus. I'm a little weird when it comes to food though. I like everything and anything. I hardly get sick to my stomach, even when everyone else is because of food. So I pretty much like everything and am happy with anything. But Hungry Bear is goood! They just have burgers. But I have heard mixed reviews here about that place. You should go try it!!

I made those envelopes a long time ago and for some reason we never used them. I'm glad because I know I would be so happy if I got one of those!

Sherry! When's your next trip!!!

I don't know yet. I have nothing in the works at the moment. But I figure as long as I have the AP, I will have to make a solo trip or two to DLR for the day at some point (that is, if I don't hop into the Ladies Only trip at the last minute). I'll try to go on my birthday, but not sure if I will be able to if I am working. And then, possibly another Halloweentime weekend trip - I have to see what DLR does with the HMH this year, or IF they do the overlay, since the HM 40th anniversary is this year and they may skip it. If they don't do the overlay, I may skip DLR for Halloweentime this year and just aim for a Holiday trip. I will have to play it by ear and see how things go with $$$. But I think I would like to try the Hungry Bear restaurant at some point!! That and Whitewater Snacks.

It would be cool if DLR really decked itself out for ALL the fun holidays, like if they had fun Valentine's and Easter decorations everywhere, and a bunch of green stuff for St. Patrick's Day, etc. But those holidays are not important enough, I guess.
