Your pictures are wonderful!

I love the one of you and Ayden hugging on the Monorail!

You are a lucky girl to have such wonderful boys (men!)

Drumroll please..............
here is our last and final day, then I will post the photopass pics!!!

The last day is always the hardest. Especially since we had to leave in the early afternoon to catch a 5:50 flight.

We were up super early since we wanted to beat the crowds as much as possible since it was a Saturday. We try to purposely plan our trips to avoid the weekends crowds. I was really surprised that the park seemed pretty empty the first two hours. We did BTMRR 5 times in a row first thing and just walked on each time. I was hoping to get it out of Ayden's system since that's all the kid wanted to ride every day all day.

The Matterhorn was open sunday but closed during the week and open again on Saturday. Here are some pictures while waiting in line.









We made sure to do It's a Small World again...I did like the subtle changes to the ride......but I will say Woody and Jesse did look very out of place as I've seen others say as well.









Here's a few misc things from the last day.....








I loved this of Chris helping Ayden at the shooting gallery.


One of my favorite meals from the trip...



Our last character visit...and more pictures with the letters. My nickname is Nellie so that's why I always get the N











Not sure if I posted this picture before or not...I just liked it of Ayden and I



And the saddest picture of them all....... ::::::sniff:::::::: leaving for the last time knowing we won't be back in the morning



So to finish things up...we were already checked out of the Park Vue and they stored our luggage. The Disney Express was 20 minutes late to pick us up...THEN had to take us to the Disneyland Hotel where we had to transfer to another bus. We were really starting to sweat bullets that we were going to be late to the airport. ESPECIALLY when we got on the freeway and the carpool lane was backed up...we should have just stayed in the regular lanes!
We made it in time and had a really good flight home. Take off was right at sunset and it was beautiful. By the time we were flying over San Francisco it was really dark and it was beautiful!!!! Ayden loved seeing all the lights.

I'll be back with our photopass pictures!!!

I got Anthony that same shirt Ayden is wearing!!!! Thought it was so cute!!!

Ayden & I would get along great!!! We both love BTMRR....I'm with him, I could ride it all day long!!

I'm guessing your favorite meal was from the Rancho del Zocalo? We looked forward to eating there last year & it was by far the worst meal we've ever had there....... we're seeing a pretty even split on liking it or hating it.....lol We've gotten pretty spoiled to a fabulous mexican restaurant here in town & Mike is a wonderful cook that makes some mexican dinners to die for!!

Sounds like a magical trip & you got some great pictures!!! Thanx for sharing them. Looking forward to the PhotoPass pics!!!!

I loved your report!


I saw you on your last day(I think it was your last day...) near the BTMRR. We were doing the Dis Diva Scavenger Hunt. Anywho, I did say hi and ran off b/c my team was on the run! lol I also saw you when you were leaving Carnation Cafe and we were all arriving. It was great to see you and I look forward seeing you on the trip next year!

I thought Rancho Del Zocalo was soooooo much better this year than it was last year. I think we got lucky. It was just so quick, easy, good on cost and it was pretty yummy. I know what you mean though....once you find a good Mexican restaurant, nothing else can even compare lol

Since I stayed home today from work I'm going to work on getting my photopass pictures up...then my TR will officially be done!

So my thoughts on Photpass this trip..........there certainly were not many photographers out. In fact I made a comment about there not being many and the photographer tried telling me where they all were located at. I know where they were at...but I also knew where they were NOT at as well. I'm happy with our pictures.....I was in charge of a photopass share group and we ended up with 3 cds and over 1000 pictures!

here are a few of mine...

































I always have to take a picture kissing goofy! I liked last years better

We had the same problem with finding the PhotoPass Photographers both times we were there in March/April!!! They used to be everywhere & this time we only got about 80 pics & that was over 6 days!! They weren't always at the "normal" spots either. We entered the park a couple times in the morning & no photo at the entry, we walked past the Partner's Statue a number of times & no photographer.....kind of a drag when we knew we'd be getting the CD.

I think the one of you kissing Goofy.......is ADORABLE!!!!

Just stumbled across your TR and think its SO GREAT! Love all the pictures and comments and reviews. We're mostly going on weekends with our APs this year, so when you mentioned that the park was pretty empty the first couple hours on the Saturday you were there, I was all SMILES! Woohoo! I see some hope for our Saturday.

That stinks about the photopass photographers. I feel like the last time we went to DLR (May 2007) we spent a lot of time trying to find them. But at that point, the system was relatively new, so maybe Disney was still trying to get the hang of the best way to do it. It stinks when you're dressed all cute and the sunlight is just right and then you have to "search" for someone! In WDW last time, June 2008, I felt like they were around every turn, though. Maybe it depends on the time of year?
