Oh yeah I live about three miles from there. I think it's funny when I see people pulled off to the side of the road to see the jets, when I've been around them for about 8 years or so, waking me up at 6-7am flying around. And no prob! I have been meaning to check that out also.

So far for our trip we have:

-like 5 little bottles of shampoo, 2 of conditioner (we need more!)
-little thing of toothpaste
-sunscreen
-sanitary wipe things
-little bottles of hand sanitizer
-one disposable camera, want to get another one that's waterproof
-4 disposable ponchos (might need more, it might rain four of our days)
-SNACKS! 12 pack water bottles, 8 pack powerades, 12 pack chips ahoy, nutter butter, and oreos, poptarts, and 26 pack of assorted chips. We're almost ready! Trying to think of what else to buy....

Oh! That's a good Idea actually and something we should totally think about getting while we are there. Ponchos!

Yeah! I am glad I thought of them this time. They will be useful even if it doesn't rain, cause one of my favorites is Splash Mountain.

Well I don't want to put this off forever so I will start my TR now! I'm not excited to be back but DBF and I had an AMAZING trip. Everything went great. So here goes! I have to warn you though, I take pictures with DBF's phone, and while they usually turn out great, this time the resolution was unknowingly set to 324 or something. The pictures turned out small, and I was unhappy!!

Thursday January 28: We woke up at about 3am and got ready to go. My truck was parked in the garage so we had our bags already in the truck and strapped down. By 3:30am we were ready to go, so we were off! We drove and on the 303 we saw a tipped over semi truck! That was scary to see but it seemed like everyone was ok and no other cars were involved. We kept driving and I took a note that we got to the border at 6am, but I am not sure if that's AZ time or CA time. We kept driving and driving and didn't eat anything along the way because we weren't hungry. We got near Palm Springs and there was snow on the mountains!


We arrived at DLR at about 9:30 and walked right in and used our MM. The crowds were more than I expected but it was still a lot less crowded than when I went in October and it happened to be Gay Days. That was soooo crowded! My mom texted me and told me to send her a picture. This is what I sent her.


From there we went straight to Peter Pan. That was the only ride we rode because the line was kind of long and it was almost 10 by the time we got out. We decided to eat a breakfast burrito from Village Haus. When the rest of the park opened we went over to Adventureland. We got FP's for Indy and rode it, then went to HM and Pirates. At some point in the day we rode Buzz for the first time. I liked it, and I smoked DBF's score by 20,000.

We rode rides like crazy for most of the day. At around 1pm we went to DCA and went to Taste Pilots for lunch. We shared a B2BBQ Sandwich. That was soooo good! After that we went to check in at the hotel. I LOVED our hotel. It was so nice and clean, the people were nice, and the view from the top was great! We were on level 2 but we went to the top a few times to see and no one had any problem with it.
(Sorry, I thought I had pics of the view)

After that we went to DCA for the rest of the time until it closed, and went to DL for the remainder of the night.

Friday January 29: We got up and had breakfast at Mimi's Cafe. I had Smoked bacon and eggs from the healthy menu, and DBF had an omelet. It was so good! We loved it and will definitely be going there again. We didn't while we were there on our trip but we are going to use the last free breakfast this weekend. We did the same thing Friday as we did on Thursday. Rode rides like crazy! We went to DCA first. We went and rode Soarin' first.



We stayed at DCA until about 12 and headed over to DL to ride Pirates and HM before our PS for Blue Bayou at 1:10pm. We went in and within about ten minutes we were being seated. We kept walking closer and closer to the water. And every table I looked at thinking that was the one, it wasn't. He sat us by the water!! I was so happy. It was a good spot too. It took forever for the waiter to come take our drink order but it was alright. I told the waiter that I had eaten before our PS so I was only getting a salad, and he seemed like it was perfectly fine. (I hadn't eaten but I didn't want to tell him I was just trying to save DBF money!) DBF ordered the Monte Cristo. (Don't get mad, but ) We didn't like it at all. I had one slice of the sandwich and my tummy hurt the rest of the day. My salad was really good though. DBF and I decided that just once was enough, until they get the cookie boat back. We rode rides for the rest of the day but I felt sick so we went back to the hotel at about 8-9 after we had used all of our FP's. We went to the top to watch the fireworks from there. I wasn't thinking it would be any good. There were a few people up there already. The fireworks started and I couldn't believe it but you could HEAR the music. It was awesome! We even saw Tink flying from the Matterhorn! I was in awe. After that, it was bed time.

Saturday January 30: We had breakfast at McDonalds this day. I had a Yogurt Parfait (SO GOOD!) and iced coffee. DBF had a breakfast burrito and an egg McMuffin. We went to Disneyland at about 9:10. We wanted to go to DCA to ride TSMM because we hadn't done that yet. So we rode the train around once and by that time it was about 9:30-9:40. We got in the park and we didn't want to sit around and wait for the rest of the park to open so we went and rode Soarin'. I remember it being a walk-on. After that we took the GRR path to Paradise Pier. We got to TSMM and the line was probably about 30 mins. We didn't care too much so we waited in it.

We really liked this ride! I didn't know DBF liked it as much as me until he told my brother about it when we got back about how cool it was. I couldn't believe how real it felt. I really thought things were flying at me, hahaha. After that we rode Screamin' of course! After that I took a bunch of pictures of Paradise Pier.

Then DBF and I thought it would be funny to make it look like we are part of the Billboards.

Later on we went to DL and had RRPP for a late lunch and early dinner. Then we went back to the hotel by closing.

I'm amazed at the quality of the pictures you got off the phone!!! Even pics from Soarin'.....I'm impressed!!

We loved Blue Bayou when we went last March, but sounds like some things have changed there & have read a number of not-happy customers when it came to there food.......real bummer!!

We actually had the Monte Cristo sandwich at Cafe Orleans & it was very good. Very hot, crisp.....but very rich. I can only eat one of the wedges.....but I think getting it when it's just out of the fryer is key....if it sits at all....to me, it would get greasy & definately cause a gut ache.

Liking the report & pics so far!!!

Sunday January 31: We had the same thing from McDonalds again. Today we went to DL first. I remember wanting to ride Space more than anything so we got the most FP's for it. For lunch on this day I think we went to DCA. I had Lucky Fortune Cookery and didn't like it. I got Terriaki chicken and it just wasn't what I was used to or something so I tried to finish it all. DBF had soft tacos from... Cocina Mexican Grill? After that we went back to DL and rode rides until about 4:30. Then we went to the hotel to get the truck and directions to Olive Garden. We went to the mall it was at and thought it was so funny that there was an Olive Garden inside the mall, right next to a Vans store. Now we decided that every time we go to our mall we're going to look for the Olive Garden. I got salad and Minestroni (also ) and DBF got Tour of Italy and extra bread sticks. SOOO GOOD! After we pigged out on that we went back to DCA until it closed I think at 8. Then we went to DL and got a good spot for the fireworks about 10 minutes before it started. They were amazing! After that we rode more rides and went back to the hotel.

Monday February 1: Today we went to the park at 9:30, and since it was opening at 10 we didn't get very far in. We went to some sort of bakery and I had chocolate milk and some of DBF's blueberry muffin for breakfast. As soon as it opened we went and rode rides. Which is pretty much all we did that day. We went to Target for head ache medicine and got lunch at Taco Bell. Then came back and rode more rides. At 8 when DL closed, we went back to the hotel. We weren't tired so we decided we needed to use our free movie rental from the hotel. We rented Step Father and got another pizza from pizza hut. About halfway through the movie stopped! So we called the front desk and she said that they were having some problems and when it's back up we can rent whatever movie we want to. DBF was tired and didn't want to go through the whole part of the movie again so I decided to rent Twilight New Moon. I fell asleep about 20 mins in and was so disappointed!

Tuesday February 2: Today was the last day. We checked out and put everything in the truck, and drove to the parking structure. I forgot to add but on Friday we upgraded our tickets to Annual Passes. DBF got a Deluxe and I got a Premium. So I had free parking at the structure. We put all of our bags inside my truck and went to the park. We knew the time would go by too fast. We went to DCA first to ride Soarin', TOT and Screamin' the last time. Then we went to DL and rode Indy, HM, Splash, and Pirates. Then we went to Space and found it was actually a walk-on. For the first time the whole trip we had a decent crowd amount! And we couldn't even take advantage of it because we had to leave. But first we rode Space like 4-5 times. Then we went back to the structure by 2:30 and got out of the lot by 3. We both had tears in our eyes.

Pictures coming right up!

I thought so too! We usually get GREAT pictures. I sold my camera because I realized I hardly ever used it. All of my pictures are taken from DBF's phone. I just wish I had set the resolution, but there's no way I would have known unless I looked into it.

Yeah I don't think we'll ever eat there. We didn't order anything else off the menu but it's too expensive and nothing really appeals to us. We also looked at the menu of Napa Rose and nothing sounded good there either. Maybe we're just too used to Taco Bell.

At some point in the trip we rode Monsters Inc for the first time. When we got to (I can't remember her name... The secretary lady) I tried talking to her but she didn't say anything back. I felt incredibly stupid but then the lady in front of us said "She really does talk back!" And I didn't feel so bad anymore. But after we got off the ride, I looked out and I saw.... SULLY!!! I had to wait in line to get a picture with him. The line wasn't too long. I finally got up to him and DBF took these pictures!

Then he gave me one last hug and make kissing noises. I was so happy!! He's adorable.

I took a bunch of pictures of the Haunted Mansion. Some of them turned out pretty good for being so small!



I also took some when we rode the Fun Wheel. We rode in a non-swinging one.


When we went on Tarzan's Treehouse DBF snapped a few.
Drinking frozen apple juice!
Lol, I don't get this one!
Haunted Mansion!

Random pictures coming up next, I think I went to 25.
