After we left the soda fountain, we decided to head back towards our van.....people were starting to drag & wanted to return to the motel. I took some more pictures as we walked up the street. Here's Mann's Chinese Theater from across the street:






A couple Limos as we waited to cross the street:




Roosevelt Hotel:




We actually stopped at Mann's this time. In 2005 this area was covered with people dressed in costumes. If you tried to take a picture of them....they say it will cost you. Anthony was 4 & saw Superman....I had to shell out $5 so he could have his picture with him......It really made me mad....kids don't understand that.....but it was great this time.....not one single costumed person in sight!!! So here are a couple pics I got:







Tyler & Addy waiting to head to van:




Back on the road:







I thought this was very pretty.....we took an off ramp to get gas (and try to find a spot to get a pic of the Hollywood sign) & saw this beautiful flower on the cement wall:



Next post will conclude our Hollywood day!

So we were in search of a spot to get a picture of the Hollywood sign. The first place we stopped we ended up with a palm tree in the middle of our view:




When we stopped at the gas station, I was able to get a clearer view:




Back on the road again:




The twins in the car....they were being silly:





I thought the way the Hard Rock packaged their classic shirts was cute.....like a record album (for those of you that remember what an album is.... )




We made it back to the motel around 7pm. I decided I needed to do another couple loads of laundry.....yuck! I was sitting in the basement when Betty came down & said Mike needed my help. Shyann had projectile vomited all over our room...... gross!! Housekeeping came up & tried to deodorize the carpets...but woof....it didn't work too good. I went back down to finish the laundry as the kids all went to bed. Shy got sick a few times that evening......so now I'm questioning whether or not Ty's illness a few days ago was too much sun or we had a flu bug running thru our family. (Derek was sick somewhere along this time as well....just can't remember what day it was).

This concludes our Hollywood Day.......next up we'll be back at Disneyland!!! Time to go organize pics!!

How awful about Shy being sick, it is so hard with kids. Wow the traffic in Hollywood is so fun isn't it? Not! And the smog? It is always so bad.

I love peppermint as well & the hot fudge & marshmallow made it very dreamy!

Well Shy was number 3....I was getting concerned we all were gonna be out of commission!!

The smog is something else.....I swear Disneyland pumps something in the air to keep it clear over their park!! We have never had a smog filled picture from there....but as you could see.....even on a sunny day in Hollywood....the sign looked like it was in the clouds.

Day 9, Disneyland Day 5, Sunday, August 1st!

This was the day we were going to do our Magic Morning. I was going to enjoy every minute of this, since I have an AP, I don't get these, so I had to purchase a PH for $184 so I could enjoy this with my family. It really was worth it to me!! Besides I used the PH earlier in our trip so we could use it to get extra FP's.

We were up at 5am, showered, dressed & heading out by 6:15am. Shyann seemed to be feeling fine, so she went with us. Betty decided she was just too sore & tired & told us to go. She would meet us for breakfast later in the morning. Here we are on our way:



On our walk to the parks:



We got to the security gates about 6:20 & found we couldn't enter yet. So Tyler & I got some random pics from outside the security gates:












Here's a look into the empty esplanade:







Outside the gates again:






The California letters in rainbow colors to celebrate World of Color....will actually miss these when they're taken out this fall:




We wanted to get there early so we could do pics at the letters without extra people in them.

The security guards were very friendly & kept us all entertained:




We were finally allowed in about 6:45am....so we headed straight to the letters as everyone else headed to the gates. Each family member was assigned a letter (10 letters, 10 people in our family). We had to do Betty's at a later time....but I included it here:












Next up will be Derek & Tyler each doing the set of letters.

The Walk of Fame is kinda dirty & it doesn't seem to fit....the only tie it has is with the El Capitan Theater.....so keep that one going & do one in DTD....that's what I'd like to see!!

I don't know what it is with their burgers.....I think the special sauce is just ketchup & relish but man oh man it is soooooo good when they make it!!

So Derek & Tyler each wanted to do a complete set of the letters. Here is Derek, also signing each letter. He just completed his first year of sign language in college & has a number of friends that are hearing impaired that he met thru doing this course.












Here's Tyler hamming it up!!

Here's a look at DCA from the esplanade & looking thru the gates:







We started back to get in line & I turned around to see that some of the construction cranes had gone up in the background of DCA (Cars Land.....I'm a guessing!):



Brick work in the esplanade:




I love Magic Mornings so I can go to the front gates & get these kind of pictures:






These were on the monorail pillars that go thru the esplanade:



Magic Morning!!



We were let in at 7am & we walked leisurely up Main Street getting some pics along the way:











Next up.......Fantasyland Rides!

Next up: Dumbo!

Next ride was Dumbo. The twins had never been on this one, so I stayed on the ground to take some pictures of their first flight!!














These are when we were walking by the Storybookland Canal Boats.....which was closed during Magic Morning!! Was kinda bummed out, because this one would have been a good ride for the twins:






Next post.....lets take a spin!!

Mr Toad is coming up next!
