Great pics Laurie! LOVE the haunted mansion ones. I will say again I am amazed at what you were able to get! I didn't even want to attempt any of those type shots with my new camera but I am REALLY impressed with yours!!

Loving the latest installment and anxious to see the rest! Glad you had fun with Michelle!

Last of Pirates Lair:


























Addy got separated from Anthony & Zoe at some point, but found a CM & who should wander by....Tyler!!! Thank goodness for big brothers. She was pretty upset (which I just found out that she was that upset).....but super happy to see Tyler & the other 2 kids when they joined up with them.

Time to go sort the next batch of pictures...be back later!!

After leaving Pirates Lair, Mike took Betty up to Pooh's Corner to do some shopping. Tyler took off (to where??) so Michelle & I took the kids towards ToonTown. We stopped at Snow White's Grotto to the right of the castle & look who we found!!








The statues:













The wishing well.....remember to bring your coins & drop them in. The money collected goes to the Make A Wish foundation!!






I know I'm forgetting things......I do remember riding Big Thunder Mtn RR.....which actually might have been our first ride together.....lol Oh well....

Coming up will be ToonTown.

When we left the castle and started our way back thru Fantasyland, we saw this band:




The kids wanted to stop at the Teacup for pics:




ToonTown!!!






The 3 kids wanted to ride Gadget's Go Coaster, so they went to get in line:



Michelle & I found a bench over by Chip & Dale's treehouse. We could see the coaster from there. While we waited, I took some random pics:










Gadget's Go-Coaster & the kids!!







Next post will finish up ToonTown.

Bring on the viddles!!

The waiter brought out this tray of food!!:



The bucket of meat: Ribs, chicken & sausage:



Beans:



Coleslaw:



Corn wheels:



Cornbread Muffins:



A couple pics from the little show. The performers come out & sing a few songs. Some songs they look for the audience to join in. The kids were dancing & singing along making the female lead smile & wave at them quite a bit!




The desserts are extra, but I would highly suggest that you go with the family desserts vs buying singles. The price was very good for the family-size.....only $3 more over the cupcakes!!




After the meal:





Thunder Ranch BBQ: 7 Adults, 3 Child, 2 Family Desserts, 7 drinks + Tax + Tip = $309.67 less 15% AP Disc = $273.10
This is an all you can eat BBQ meal that is very good!! There were no complaints at either table & seconds & thirds on the meats were provided. The sides were all very good & complimented the meal. The desserts were perfect for sharing & as stated above.....a good buy!! The show is a bit corny, but the kids liked it.....so it was alright by me!! The staff was friendly & they kept both tables in food.....lots of food!!




Mike, Tyler & the 3 kids decided to go ride Splash Mtn after dinner. They had tried to ride it earlier but it broke down. Derek, Nick & Betty took the twins back to the motel & Michelle & I headed towards the Small World area to find a spot for all of us to watch the Celebrate parade. We ended up on the raised area at the railing. The street level was already filled up. We figured the rail would give the kids a good view....unfortunately, Addy is huge into dancing & not being on the street meant she didn't get to join in with the characters. The volunteer cavalcade came by & then finally the rest of the group got there just in time for the parade.

Next up......Let's Celebrate!!

The Celebrate Parade......a fun show that makes 3 stops to dance & entertain. The music gets your foot tapping & if you are on the street level, you will be asked out to join in the dancing. My boys were not impressed with this parade....but you have to keep in mind that their first experience with Disney parades were the Electrical Parade & the Parade of Dreams.....pretty hard to top those or even compete!! I didn't mind the parade.....I loved seeing all the different characters!! It was a bonus to see Clara Cow & Clarice the Chipmunk!!


























More Parade pics coming up!!

More Celebrate Parade!



























After the parade, we realized that Mike had lost the twins ParkHoppers!! I was in a panic. I went up to City Hall to see what could be done as the rest of the group got ice cream & rode Space Mountain.

City Hall was very kind, but they would not be able to help me. I had to run over to DCA (ouside the gates on the left) to the Lost & Found. After standing in a bit of a line, I got up to the desk to be told that nothing from Disneyland from today would be brought over until after the park closes. They told me to come back in the morning to see if they were found. While I was standing in lines, I had text Tyler to run up to Splash Mtn to see if by chance they found it.....we figure that is where he lost it. No luck.....bummer! The evening kinda blurs from there....I was a bit stressed out!!

I think we rode BTMRR again & then Mike needed to get Anthony & Addy back to the motel for bed. Michelle & Zoe went with Tyler & I to the pin store in Frontierland & then Nick met up with us there. We said good bye to our new friends & then went out to do some rides. I'm guessing we rode Space & BTMRR but after that I really can't recall.

It was a great day until we lost the tickets.....but I'll show up at 8am to see about getting them replaced the next morning.
