Day 2 – August 14, 2012– Part 12

Day 2 – August 14, 2012– Part 12

We left off just getting off RSR. It was fun to ride RSR again, but it was good for my DB and V that they got to ride it that day. We were lucky that the wait time was only about 10 minutes to get on RSR that day with the FP’s. It is hasn’t been for the FP’s, we would have to wait in the standby queue for over an hour and a half. We got Luigi’s side as the one that I was hoping to get. That was my favorite side when I ride RSR.

While we were walking on out of RSR, I got a few more pics of RSR queue




I looked at the standby time for RSR and it was about 90 minutes when we left. The wait time shrink by 10 minutes, but 1 ½ is still a long wait time.

When we exited RSR, it was around lunch time and we started to feel hungry after riding RSR. I asked DB and V if they were hungry and they were also hungry after riding RSR. So the closest restaurant in Cars Land was Flo’s V8 Café or the Cozy Cone Motel. Since I didn’t eat at Flo’s V8 during the preview in June, this was a great opportunity to have lunch at Flo’s. Plus it gives me the opportunity to get pictures inside the restaurant since I didn’t get to go inside in June.

So we head on over to Flo’s V8 Café for lunch and I was so excited. I planned this from this morning when I got the FP’s for RSR and hope that we got earlier times to ride RSR and come back to Flo’s for lunch. Now we are on our way to Flo’s V8 Café for lunch.

Got a few pictures on the way to Flo’s from Cars Land








Now entering Flo’s V8 Café for lunch


When we entered the Flo’s, it was not that crowded. I was glad that it wasn’t as busy as I have thought it would be since it is close to noon and there should have been quite a number of people to have lunch while they are in Cars Land.

More pics from inside Flo’s V8 Café




A look at the menu








Flo’s V8 Café menu




We had to wait a little bit until our order was ready. We got our food and went to the back side of the restaurant. There was a back side that has a view of RSR and the front which there is an outside eating area or at Doc Hudson’s clinic building. We decided to eat at the back side since has a lot of great decorations.

My DB and V shared a plate together while I got my own plate. They had the Citrus Turkey Breast plate while I had the Pork Loin. There are also sides that came with the dish. We both had the roasted corn medley and the mashed potatoes.




The food was nice but it wasn’t as great as I have thought from the reviews that I have been reading. The pork loin was a little dry without the cola sauce. My DB and V said the same thing with the citrus turkey breast where the meat was a little dry for them. For about $11.49 without the AP discount it was a little high for this dish. But since I have never eaten at Flo’s, it was a good opportunity to try the food.

One day when I go back to Flo’s, I will have Flo’s Pie-O-Ramas or Classic Shake.

A few more pictures of the restaurant while we were eating








From the table




We finally was finished with our lunches and started to head on out of Flo’s. But while we were walking out, I had to get a few more pics of the light fixtures that I almost forgot to get while we were inside.

The light fixtures inside the restaurant




We left Flo’s V8 Café and now on to our next destination, but that will be another time and find out what we have done after eating at Flo’s and what kind of adventure we will do next.

That cactus picture at the top of your post looks like it could have easily been taken at the Wrigley Memorial & Botanical Gardens on Catalina Island instead of in Cars Land. It's all cactus, all the time, in that garden!

The colored lights on the ceiling at Flo's were among my favorite Cars Land things when I was there. It was interesting to see how the lights pulsated in time with the music that was being played!

Did your Catalina Island Visitors Guide ever arrive, and if so, did you show it to your DA?

Great pictures of Flo's V-8 cafe! It is disappointing that your meal wasn't better but good to know. The price was a bit steep.

I continue to be amazed a the extensive detail in the themeing at CL. Love the light fixtures too.

Adventure awaits! Wonder what you'll be up to next?

I am all caught up! Phew! I don't know if I would have waited for FP's for the rides. DL is so different from so many years ago. But I am enjoying your experience. I love the Bobsleds and BTMRR.

Thanks! I felt like I was riding with you guys, so much fun!

usnuzuloose -

I merged your last two posts together. Neither one of the posts was quoting anyone else's post and they were back to back, as well as being very short. It seemed to make sense to merge them in this case.

That's a shame that the food wasn't as nice as you expected at Flo's. Maybe it was an off-day.

Still, it looks great in there. Seems to me to be straight out of the Diners of the 60's.

Thanks for sharing.

When I looked at your pictures during your June preview at Cars Land, I knew that I had to get a picture of the cactus right at the queue of RSR.

Flo's V8 Cafe had a lot of different light fixtures and very colorful in each different room from the front to the other dining rooms. The music was great that matched the theme of the building which was in the 60s.

I did get the Catalina Island visitors Guide and it was very interesting. I didn't show my DA yet since she is so busy with work. But I will eventually show it to her later on when she has time.

Thank you Sherry.

Thank you TK. It was just a little disappointing of the food at Flo's, but overall the dining experience at the restaurant made up for it with all those decorations. At least I won't have to buy meals at Flo's, but I can still get desserts while I am there. For that price, I would rather get a burger or chicken at the other restaurants at DCA.

The Imagineers really did a great job with the theme of Cars Land and each characters buildings which represents them. Even though the restaurant sitting area wasn't part of the movie, they try to make it part of the buildings.

The next update will up later this morning.

It was a long time to wait for RSR FP, but it was worth not waiting over an hour and a half that day in the standby queue. I did this for my DB and V so they can enjoy Radiator Springs Racers. So it was worth it. DL has changed over the years and I am hoping that you will go back one day. But you do have your WDW DISmeet next year with PiO, Alison, and the other DISers.

Glad that you like the videos that I videotaped that day.

The food wasn't as great as I have thought, but just as you said that it could have been an-off day. The sides were very nice on the plate. I think that the price should be under $10 for that meal.

Flo's V8 Cafe looked great with all the decorations and fixtures.

Thank you PiO.


The next post will be up shortly so stay tune for what we did after Flo's.

Day 2 – August 14, 2012– Part 13

Day 2 – August 14, 2012– Part 13

We left off at Flo’s V8 Café where we had lunch that afternoon after riding Radiator Springs Racers. I was so looking forward to eating at Flo’s after not eating at the restaurant during the preview in June. When we finished our food, it was not as great as I have thought. At least I got to try the food at Flo’s V8 Café. When I come back to Anaheim in November, I will try to remind myself to have a pie at Flo’s since it was too early in the afternoon to get a dessert.

When we left Flo’s V8 Café, my DB and V wanted to look at the stores at Cars Land since we are in the area. They were considering going back to the room to rest up. I was kind of surprise to hear that they wanted to rest up. I asked if they wanted to continue to stay in the parks, but they needed a rest after a long morning and afternoon. This is what I mostly do in the afternoon when I am in the park. Mostly I quit and go back to the room around noon to 1pm, but I am not going to force them to stay in the park just like when I tried to get them to get multiple park hopper days for their tickets.

We now started to go around the stores in Cars Land. First they wanted to see Sarge’s Surplus Hut so we head in that direction first. I was going to ask if they wanted to go to Ramone’s or Lizzie’s store. So we head on over to Sarge’s Surplus.

While we were around the middle of Radiator Springs, we saw that LFT queue was still at 50 minute wait time. So there was no way they would want to wait at LFT for 50 minutes.


Before we head on over to Sarge’s Surplus Hut, I wanted to go and see what the lines were like at the Cozy Cone Motel. As for my previous experience at the Cozy Cone Motel were not that good on the first day of the preview which I waited about half an hour in the popcorn queue just to get popcorn. My DA was not happy with my decision to wait that long. I’m still getting lashed by my DA every time I talked about the Cozy Cone Motel and waiting half an hour in the queue. Let’s get back to the TR and not talk about waiting time. We head on over to the Cozy Cone Motel and see that the queues for all five cones were not that long. I was surprised to see that the lines were not that long. It just shows you how much of a difference from June to August where there were long lines and now there is no one.





While we were around the Cozy Cone Motel, I went to see if they have the souvenir cone cups. On Monday when we got to the resort, we saw some people that have the souvenir cups. I was kind of surprise to see the souvenir cups that day since there were reports that the cups were gone on the first week for the summertime and Disney had to order more cups for the summertime. But when I looked at the counter windows, they didn’t have any souvenir cone cups available. I wasn’t shocked that they didn’t have any left, but I was hoping that there would be some available that day after seeing them on Monday. I could have got one on Monday, but we just got in that day and there was no point of rushing in to get one.

After looking around at the Cozy Cone Motel, we head on over to Sarge’s Surplus Hut. It was just a toy store with Cars characters. They did have some other Cars merchandise, but the other two stores have pins and CL merchandise.


After going in Sarge’s Surplus Hut, we started to head on over to the next store which is Ramone’s House of Body Art. So we head on back into Radiator Springs.


Another light fixture at Cars Land


It wasn’t as crowded during that afternoon. I thought it was going to busy at Flo’s and Cozy Cone since it was lunch time, but that wasn’t the case that day.






We entered the store and we looked around at the merchandise. Just like the last time I was here in June, they had all the same Cars Land merchandise and didn’t have any AP exclusive merchandise. I was hoping that there would be some exclusive AP merchandise at Ramone’s House of Body Art and it looks like I was wrong. But my DB and V looked around at the store to see what is there to buy.

Light fixture inside Ramone’s House of Body Art store






My DB and V bought a few items at Ramone’s store which were shirts or RSR and key chains. We did save a little money thanks to my AP discount. They were happy with the purchases from Ramone’s and now we started to leave the store and head on over to Lizzie’s Curios shop


We didn’t stay too long at Lizzie’s store since it was the pin store. I knew that they weren’t too interested in pins so we just stayed in there for a while until we start on heading out of Cars Land and back to BVS.






We now leaving Cars Land and heading on back to BVS together. I went with them since they are interested in going to the Elias & Company store at BVS to see what there is to look at and possibly buy. I knew that they would look at the store and see what to get. It was also a good opportunity for me to do some things around BVS like riding the Red Car Trolley. But we’ll get to that later on and back to the three of us leaving Cars Land.


It was quite busy around Cars Land when we left, but now it was time to head on back to BVS. The Carthay Circle Theater looks great every time I see it.




Now a few more pics around BVS as we were heading on over to the Elias & Company store


A look at Hollywood Land




Now we head on over to the Elias & Company store.


That’s it for this post and we will see what we did in the store and afterwards.

I actually didn't do any shopping at the three stores in Cars Land. I was hoping to find AP merchandise at CL, but the stores didn't carry any of those merchandise. I did buy some stuff at the Elias & Company store that day.


I will have the next update tonight so stay tune.

Day 2 – August 14, 2012– Part 14

Day 2 – August 14, 2012– Part 14

We left off at BVS where we did a lot that day. We got to ride RSR that afternoon and had lunch at Flo’s V8 Café. Plus my DB and V did some shopping at the stores in Cars Land. Now we are back at Buena Vista Street to go to the Elias & Company store since my DB and V have decided to call it for the afternoon since they want to get some rest. For me, I decided to stay at the parks a little longer to do watch some shows.

Now we were entering the Elias & Company store where my DB and V wanted to get some more gifts while we are around BVS. Just like at Cars Land, V looked through the store to see what she likes. They did buy some items at Ramone’s and this time at Elias & Company, they bought a few more merchandise. They bought some more shirts and hats for their family and friends. I did buy some stuff at the store which I bought the Cars Land music CD which I was excited to get. I really wanted to get the CD after not getting it during the June trip. Some days, I have been listening to the CD while I am on my CPU. Just like last time they handed me their money so I can save them on my AP discount. I always try to help out my party members to save them some money on buying the merchandise or food at the DLR.

V likes to shop and she did spend some time in the store to look at everything and see what has her eye. The thing that she was interested the most was the Dooney and Bourke bags. I remember that my DB bought one of those bags back at WDW last year which costs over $300. But this time, there wasn’t one that caught her eye. But she did like those bags at the store.

While they were shopping, I got some pics of the light fixtures at the Elias & Company store








After they got their stuff at the Elias & Company store, they went back to the room while I stayed at the parks to do my other things that I wanted to do. I will get to that later on during the posts. I can understand that they wanted to go back to the room and rest up after a long morning at the parks. We did get to do a lot of different rides and activities. I would have done the same thing and go back to the room to rest up for nighttime, but I had to see the two shows this trip in which they might not be running during the Holiday season in November when I go back. So I stayed in the park.

When we parted ways at Elias & Company store, I head on back to the Hub at BVS to see the Red Car News Boys. I have not seen this show yet since it wasn’t running during the preview. So I was looking forward to seeing it. So I head on over to the Carthay Circle Theater where they are playing.





The show started already so I rushed over to the show. It was semi busy around the Carthay Circle Theater during the show. I was looking forward to this show as it was one of the two shows that I wanted to see during the trip. Here are pictures from Red Car News Boys show at 1pm.





















Now Mickey appears in the show


















That’s it for this post and I will have more from Red Car News Boys show tomorrow.

Thank you PiO.

They did have a great time shopping, but i didn't buy anything during that time since there wasn't anything special that I wanted to get

The next post will be up shortly.

Day 2 – August 14, 2012– Part 15

Day 2 – August 14, 2012– Part 15

I left off at BVS watching Red Car News Boys show. It was a nice show with the Red Car Trolley in the background and they sing and dance to authentic period tunes of the 1920s/30s-era. My DB and V went back to the room to rest up while I stayed at the parks to watch the show as well as another show that day. But I will get to that later on. Now let’s get back to the show.





















Mickey and the rest of the News Boys left off in the Red Car Trolley and the show was over.


After the show was over I started to head on over to Paradise Pier to see the next show which was Instant Concert. Goofy is the conductor of the concert and use the WoC fountains as part of a daytime show. I thought it would be fun to check out, but it was cutting close since it started around the same time as Red Car News Boys show. So I head on over to PP.


Over at Cars Land, it was still busy but not super busy.


Now I was at PP and see if instant Concert show is over or not.




The Instant Concert show was already over at PP, so I had to come back later in the afternoon to see the show. While I was around PP, I decided to get a few pics while I was in the area.


Also I saw my favorite spot to see WoC at night. As for the people who don’t know the secret spot in the blue section right at the green fire hydrant. For the last two years, this is my prime spot to see WoC. The good thing about this spot is that you don’t have to wait a long time to get a spot and you can exit PP faster than being up front. I like this spot is that I can videotape WoC and get much of it as possible and I won’t get my cameras wet. I knew that I was going to get this spot at night unless someone knows this spot really well and would wait as long as 1+ hour just for it. I have gotten this spot almost all the time with about 30 to hour wait time. It does seem long just for this spot, but I really like this spot the best since I haven’t done the yellow and dining area in a long time. I might do the dining package in November when my DA and I eat at the Carthay Circle Restaurant for dinner.

That reminds me that I need to make a reservation at the CCR 60 days in advance so it looks like that I will have to call it in about 10 days. I can’t wait to eat at the CCR on my next DL trip.





A look at MFWoT or MFWoD


While I was in the area, I got pictures of the flowers around the viewing area as well as the light tower.










That’s it for this post and I will have the next update tomorrow of what I did that day at DCA.
