But the pictures of Cinderella castle are very nice with the color changing at night.

Cinderella castle at night.

I was planning on doing the sign quest at the DLR and now I am thinking of doing a CM name search, statue, ride vehicle names, etc. This is getting crazy of what I should do.

R u talking about the ride signs letters?

Yes, the ride sign letters. They are all so different and fit the theme of the rides so well - it's one of those great details that I "noticed" but didn't really take "notice of" until recently.

I know, I'm in the middle of several quests, but love all these ideas, too. Not sure what I will do either....

I think you could easily do the CM name quest (after all, it's just ONE name you need to find, lol) and maybe one or two of the easier ride names since you don't have a lot of time.

Hey, Matt started it. Or Sherry. Certainly not me.


How's that trash can quest coming, Sara?

But brett, nice TR! Very well done!
It's fine, I'm just thinking of what quest I should do when I head to DL in a few weeks. After doing Matt's riding vehicle quest which was quite an adventure and now want to do something challenging on my short trip to DL.

ok in one month how many times do you go to DLR?
In the past I mostly go once a year to DL and during the last three years (not including this year), I went to DL on a average of 4 trips during those three years. I have been to 30+ trips to DL and 7 trips to WDW in my life.

When I went to DL in March 2010, I went to DL on the 16-18 during a short business trip and went to DL about a half day when my family and I were suppose to head to WDW on March 26th. That was two trips in one month.

The most days I have been to DL during a vacation is during the D23 Expo back in 2009 which I went to the park 5 days during that event.

I'm glad that you like the castle pictures with the Holiday overlay. Cinderella Castle at MK does not have that magical Holiday overlay like SB castle does at DL. With no snow on the turrets and few decorations all over the castle (just only the icicles all over the castle at night).

That will be a good idea to do for my picture quest since I was planning on getting pics of the signs around the DLR. But this will take more than 1 1/2 days at the DLR if I don't plan on doing any rides or shows.

If I do the CM name quest, it will take some time to look for the person with my name, but some names are hard to get. But we will wait and see.

I don't know why I am having seconds thoughts of missing the extravaganza event on Saturday and enjoy a full day at DL. Some of my friends are not going to the event on saturday and now I am not planning on going to the event. I don't want to go to the event where I don't know anyone, but with the Sign Quest that I am doing, it would give me more time to play around at the parks. But I'll decide when the date gets closer.

I'd determine it as the date comes. It would be a bummer if you went to the show and your friends did not. But if one of them go and you don't they may be bummed. You might just let them plan what you do on Saturday.

I know Matt, when the date comes closer I will decide if I want to spend part of my Saturday at the Extravaganza event or miss it and spend time at DL and do the Sign Quest. But most of my friends are not going out to LA for that event since they can't afford to go down there and don't have time to go down. Even though it is one of the biggest YU-GI-OH! TCG events of the year, there must be reasons for them to go and not to go down there for the event.

I would like them to be there, but if they can't make it, I can spend more time on the Sign Quest around the resort. I am very looking forward to see RDCT fireworks.

Can't believe I am in the single digits and only 9 days away till my mini trip to DL. Kind of excited to do a very difficult quest in the Sign Quest at the DLR. This will be 10 times more harder than the Vehicle Ride Quest. With so rides, restaurants, shopping centers, bathrooms, etc. is going to be tough, but it is very exciting.

To get ready for my short trip, I thought to post of the signs around the DLR that I have taken in the past. Here are some pics of the signs.

Disney Showcase Store Sign


Pacific Wharf Sign


TRON Legacy 3D Sneak Peak Sign


The Golden Horseshoe Sign


Main Street Bakery at MK

Hungry Bear Restaurant Sign


Disneyland Population Sign on MS RR Station


Haunted Mansion Holiday Sign


Mickey's Halloween Party Candy Station Sign


Crystal Arcade Sign


Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy Sign

It looks like that I have now made my decision of what I am going to do next Saturday during my trip. As you have read that I was planning on going to the YU-GI-OH! TCG Extravaganza event at the LA Convention Center on Saturday, but most of my friends are not planning on going to the event o I decided not to go. I am kind of sad that I am not going to that event.

But right I am now kind of excited to go to DL next week after I read from Dizneydaz about Family Fun Weeeknds. It was very interesting to get to see a lot of different characters that have not appeared at DL for awhile. If I have read it correctly from Dizneydaz, there will be Clara, Clarabelle, 3 little pigs etc. But I am kind of excited to see this event next week and I am going to be going crazy taking pictures and videotaping the events.

Kind of sad and now very excited to go to DL next week. I have a lot to do that week. Not only the Sign Quest and now Family Fun Weekend with Kickin' Country Weekend.

R u talking about videotaping the Kickin' Country Weekend show like Dizneydaz has taken during her vacation? When I get to DL around 12 to 1 on Friday, I am plan on going to the back side of DL and see that event. I will be taking pictures of the signs around the park when I get to the back side.

Oops. I believe u r talking about the next week after my trip next week. I would like to go back down their for another week, but I have other things to do next week and have not time to go back to DL.
