The rest of the artwork upstairs.














The boys were looking down on the rest of the family waiting in the lobby.






When we left the DL Hotel, we walked back thru Downtown Disney. Betty was hoping to ride the Monorail back into the park, but it was down. So we took a slow stroll, window shopping as we made our way back to the gates of Disneyland.

This time we entered thru the left gates & the boys got these:










Hey we've finally made it to 11:30am!!

I didn't see any pics of that & I'm pretty sure if the boys had seen it...they would have taken pictures of it. So not sure they got in the right area or they've replaced it with what the boys got pics of.

After making it back into Disneyland, Mike & I took the twins to City Hall to get their Guest Assistance Card. We waited inside (had to take the ramp into building) while we had Tyler, Derek & Addy & Anthony wait in line. Tyler would be turning in his Give a Day voucher for FP's and you & up to 5 people in your party get them....all have to be in attendance....so we figured we had it covered this way. We got the twins GAC's & then the CM helping us with the FP's had to go get a supervisor to help him & she asked how many people we had in our party & I told her 10.....so she gave us 10 sets of 6 FP tickets to turn in for the actual FP's at the Guided Tours Building!! I was stoked she gave us all those FP's but it sure would have been nice not to have to go stand in yet another line....lol

While we were taking care of "paperwork".....Nick & Betty captured some pictures on Main Street. Three different trains stopped at the Main Street station:





They were able to see the Disneyland Band performing around the Flag Pole & also got pics of the horse-drawn carriage & Omnibus:









After we got all the cards & FP's dealt with, Tyler & Mike took the twins back to the motel for the afternoon for naps & playtime. The rest of us decided to go ride Pirates of the Caribbean together.




The railing with Walt & Roy Disney's initials above the POTC also known as the Dream Suite now.





I got off the ride & realized I had sat in mud in my BRAND NEW WHITE CAPRIS!!!!! They never did come totally clean....total bummer....this was the first time I had worn them!

Next ride was Big Thunder Mt RR.....my favorite ride. We used our FP's & went on our way....not realizing that Betty had never riden this before! Let's just put it this way......OOPS!! She at least could laugh it off as something she could mark off her bucket list!




Since she needed a little time for her tummy to settle, Derek took her to the Golden Horseshoe to relax in a cool building while I went on a water run. Nick took the kids to the Haunted Mansion during this time.






Next up Billy Hill & the Hillbilles!!

So during our time in the Golden Horseshoe, we lucked out...timing wise to catch a show by Billy Hill & the Hillbillies! These guys are a hoot!! We were sitting upstairs on the left side but I found my new camera did pretty well in getting some pics.



















After the show Betty was feeling a bit better. Nick & the kids met back up with us & I let Derek & Nick go do their own thing. Betty & I took Addy & Anthony up to Coke Corner. I couldn't remember exactly what time the Musical Chairs with Alice & the Mad Hatter started but wanted to give it a shot. We got up there about 2:15 & found a table on the main level with a good view of the piano but most importantly.....in the shade!! The piano player walked by & I asked him if they would be playing today & he said they usually do at 2:30pm but he says sometimes it gets cancelled but he's never in on that. So we figured we'd stick around to see.
The piano player noticed it was Betty's birthday & one other person sitting in that area, so he sang Happy Birthday to the both of them.




While we were waiting....Aladdin walked by!!


Next post will have Musical Chairs!!

Here comes Alice, the Mad Hatter & the Queen of Hearts to play Musical Chairs with the kids. As soon as I saw them, I sent Anthony & Addy up to ask if they could play. The did seem to limit how many kids could play.....but since my two were up there before they started...they both got to play!!







Alice was so cute & playful with the kids. She was very helpful to Addy who didn't really understand how to play.
















About half way into the game, Addy fell, which also made her the one with out a chair...so she was out but Alice & the Mad Hatter were so concerned that she might be hurt that getting out didn't bug her.



More musical chairs next post!

I love your trip report but then you knew that. I have such a terrible time keeping the boys names straight. I have to laugh. I am sad to see how disappointing Goofy's Kitchen has been. I hope they correct it.

Continuing on with the Musical Chairs game:

Addy up by the piano...didn't have a joke to tell so the Mad Hatter told her one....she didn't get it.....lol




Back to the game:





Down to Anthony & one other boy......the characters kept stealing chairs, winding them thru the tables, putting out a lot of chairs, etc to keep them on their toes. Pretty funny to watch!






Alice, The Mad Hatter & the Queen of Hearts discussing who should be the winner.


The big Announcement..........They BOTH WON!!!



The boys finding out what their prize is.........they get to put all the chairs away.......lol!!!!



When everything is put back to normal, the characters sign autographs & do pictures with the kids.


Love this photo since they got 3 characters at once!!


This was so much fun to go to & the kids talked about it all trip. Try to schedule this one in if you have young kids. It's held at Coke Corner, up by the hub, daily at 2:30pm.

I think that's all I'm gonna do today......still have the 2nd half of the day to sort thru. Tomorrow I'll bring you meeting a fellow DISer TR writer, dinner at the Rainforest Cafe, a few rides & a change to the beloved Tigger Tails!!

Nick-Dark blonde with glasses
Tyler-Very short red hair with glasses
Derek-Dark blonde, no glasses

I hope what ever was the issue at Goofy's Kitchen gets fixed as well.....pretty bad!

Okay....I think I have it....No I don't. Well, maybe I am better than I was before Nick is the one who is on the thread and was in white at Jelly Belly and was on stroller duty. Right?

That Alice looks so young, and Alice should look young.
