Laurie, I just gave your Trip Report a big, fat plug on the main DL forum. Someone started a thread about Disney Withdrawals, so I posted a link and some commentary about your TR. Expect a few more people viewing the TR!

I was going to say this yesterday but forgot (or I was having too much trouble with the pages loading) - I usually keep a list on my PC of links for pertinent threads and TR's, so that when someone asks questions I can whip out the links really quickly for referral (it's part of being a good, helpful mod and it may even be part of what got me the invitation to be a mod, because I was compiling this info before I got asked to join the mod team!). I have a list of mega-TR's that I think are great for referring people to for various reasons - I have plugged Mariezp's TR's many times, as well as Molly's (Bumbershoot's), and I have Jazz's old TR (the original) on the list as well. There's quite a few I collected links for. So I am going to definitely add your TR to the list for referral because it covers such a broad range of things and the photos are so detailed and intensive.

Also, I was thinking of heading over to the Farmers Market this weekend. I have to try to do it in the morning before it gets too busy, though. If I do, I'm going to take lots of photos to show you since you didn't make it there during your trip. They'd be good to have anyway, just because questions do come up on this board about FM and The Grove periodically. I'll post them in my TR if I can handle Photobucket.

Have fun at the Farmer's Market....I would love to see some pics of it!!

I probably have a lot of stuff on my reference list that you haven't even seen, because it's all faded into the archives, as well as some of the expected threads. I've had the list for more than a couple of years. It's more of what I think is noteworthy to look at - which may not be what someone else thinks is noteworthy.

Don't worry - you have plenty of people viewing your TR. People are seeing it and you have many people posting regularly in the TR too. I only have the number of views I have on my TR because it's been around since 2008. You have a whole bunch of views and posts from this year! So that shows there are lots of people tuning in regularly!

can't wait - sitting at the computer downloading pics from Seaworld should be cleaning the house, but reading about your advantures is sure a lot more fun.

After a little dancing, Minnie stopped back by our table:










Then we saw Pooh & Eeyore were traveling together. Eeyore got to us first, then Pooh joined him:











We saw a total of 7 characters this meal....only 1 didn't make it to our table. This was actually the least amount of characters we had seen at this meal.....but were pleased with our interaction with them anyways.

Minnie & Friends Breakfast at the Plaza Inn. 6 Adults, 2 Child meals + tax + tip = $210.49 less 15% AP Disc = $181.10
This is a buffet with pastries, cold cereal, fruit, hot breakfast favorites & made to order omelets. Usually we aren't very happy with the food, but this time it was pretty good. Our only complaint was that the trays of food seemed almost empty & weren't being refilled or replaced on a regular basis. They ran out of french toast before I got my plate & didn't know if there would be more coming or not. Later on, one of the boys went back in for more food & got french toast. So not real organized. As I stated above, the character interaction is always very good here. We enjoy the outdoor seating because it just seems they are able to move around easier out there. We recommend this meal if you like the classic characters & the ones from Winnie the Pooh. In the past we have seen those listed above, as well as Mary Poppins, Alice, Mad Hatter, Peter Pan, & Honest John from Pinocchio.

After breakfast, Derek & Tyler went to ride something as the rest of the group went to the Enchanted Tiki Room. I decided to stick around the castle because Michelle (zoemakes5) would be arriving with her daughter Zoe (age 8) anytime. As I hung out, Mickey came by with the Disneyland Band. I wish I could have been in a better position to get a few pics:









After the Tiki Room, we all met up so Derek & Nick could take the twins back to the motel for naps. We waited at the castle for Michelle & Zoe. They got there after 11am & we decided what we wanted to do first. We headed thru the backway into Frontierland (via the Rancho del Zocala restaurant). We sat down over by the stage area that Woody & Jessie have done meet-n-greets on as people took turns at the restroom. Here are a few pics of the kids & flowers & birds:









Betty really wanted to ride on the Mark Twain, so Tyler joined her:



The rest of the group headed to Pirates:









Next up Tarzan's Treehouse!

We met back up with Tyler & Betty. Mike took his mom to find some shade to sit as the rest of us headed to Tarzan's Treehouse. What a view, but I learned after doing this last year....that heights are definitely not my thing.....so Tyler graciously took the kids up along with my camera:





















More Treehouse next post!

As promised......the Haunted Mansion. Everyone got in line as Tyler & I asked the CM if we could get pics of the pet cemetary to the right of the house (thanx for the tip Jessica!!):






When we came around the corner, we realized our group was getting ready to go thru the doors into the house....so we quickly joined them. These are the pics I was able to get:















Next on the agenda was getting the kids over to the Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer Island.

Betty decided she was comfortable & cool where she was....so she opted to stay put as we went across. The kids were given instructions to stay together & where to find us. Tyler tagged along for a bit but then ventured off with my camera to get me pics. Michelle, Mike & I tried to find some seats in the shade to talk.


























More Pirates Lair next post.
