I'm sorry your view wasn't good.....I really wish they'd let everyone stay seated...then you wouldn't have problems with tall & short people. I have no complaints on where we ended up.....it was a fabulous view!

I am so jealous of your WoC photos! I didn't take any, video'd it instead (gotta love the Kodak Playsport). We were luck to be right at the front railing so we had no problem with the view but I can see how frustrating it would be for others. I truly loved the show. Not sure if I would have felt the same way if I couldn't see!

I wish we would have videotaped it!! I would have been very frustrated if our view had been blocked......you would think they would have built the viewing area at an angle to keep that from being a big issue.

All such beautiful and wonderful pictures. We ate at Ariel's Grotto in 2005 and I thought it was really good then. And I love the location.

Sick kids? Noooooooo!!! The day we got home from last summer's trip DD3 and myself both came down with Strep throat. My sister , who had gone with us, started showing symptoms the day after..we were all sick!! must have been from the trip. We felt miserable, but we were sooo thankful that it did not happen while we were there!!!
This trip, I have already purchased purse sized Lysol and plenty of hand sanitizer..crossing my fingers too!!

Once again, I come back thinking "Hey, she probably made a new post, time to read" But no, I get more and more great pictures to make my brand new eyes explode!

Loving the pictures, as for WoC, I wished they added more of UP, that was a really great movie.

And best TR i've seen in awhile, congrats! :D

I liked my dinner from there in 2005 as well....but I remember Ty & Derek having issues finding something they would eat.

I'm glad they were able to include it & Princess & the Frog since they are the newer movies & this has been in the works since 2005!!

Aw.....shucks.....you're making me blush!! But thank you so much for the compliment!!

I enjoy following your various trips it is alot of fun watching the twins grow up!! My son has developmental delays and he is 19 now so alot of stuff you are dealing with the girls I have done with my son the only issue we never had was the feeding tube. but he didnt eat solid food until he was 5 before that it was gerber strained peas formula and rice with bananas cereal(baby) and we are now raising our 8 yr old nephew due to his mother being an idiot
so I will continue to follow your trip reports to watch all them all grow up!!! And really we are basically neighbors or at least fellow pacific northwesterns!!!

I understand the raising other people's kids cause they're idiots.....lol That would be where our 4 youngest come from!! I actually can't say that about Addy's mom.....she made bad choices from a tough childhood & in the end made the right decision for her daughter. We're close with her...but the other 2 moms are well.......as you put it.....idiots!

I'm glad you're following the family & yes.....we're neighbors!!

Day Three!! July 28th, Wednesday.

We got to the park about 7:30 so we could use our vouchers for Morning Madness in ToonTown at 8am. We try to get to this every trip....but poor planning last year got us there at opening but leaving early to make a breakfast reservation. We picked up a wheelchair for Betty as she was having issues with her hips & knees. She really didn't want to do it but I think secretly she enjoyed it!! The lines were a tad long....surprised me since it was Wednesday & should be a lighter day.



Tyler saw one of the dedication stones in the esplanade that had a Tyler & Derek listed on it....so he took this picture.....lol:



We made our way to ToonTown & found a place to sit down & wait for the opening ceremony. They have a gazebo dead center to City Hall & I asked a CM if I could stand in there to get pictures & they said yes.....perfect place to stand for the show!! As we waited for the show to begin, Tyler & Derek took a quick look around & got these pics:















I took a few pics of City Hall as I waited:





Next Post.....ToonTown Opening Ceremony!!

The Opening Ceremony for ToonTown is a cute little skit with the Mayor & Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald, Chip & Dale in attendance. They do a few songs & the skit & pick a family to be the Honorary Citizens. Both times we've seen this show....the family was from Oregon.....maybe we'll get picked one of these times!!

Nick holding Shyann so she could see:



A couple more from the show:




More Opening Ceremony next post!!
