Have a wonderful time down there in sunny Florida!!! Say hi to Mickey for me! Oh, and make sure you try the hot chocolate at the Christmas party -- I hear it is quite tasty!

I love Fantasmic and it's been a while since I have seen that show!! I know I would love World of Color too...SO AWESOME!!!!!! You got some great shots!!

I wasn't a big fan of the DHS parade, but that Pixar parade looks amazing!! Maybe WDW will take some notes from DL for the new parade to debut in January!!

Glad you got some great deals on Black Friday!! WOOT WOOT!!!
The Pixar parade was really really cool. I was amazed. Just so much to look at! It was a neat place to visit, it was a short visit, we needed two more days I think. At least three. But next time! We had other fun plans for that vacation, so I couldn't complain too much and two nights at the GCV was awesome.

World of Color was breath taking!!!

You bought Harry Potter Legos? But, wait, you said... It's hard to resist them, isn't it?

The Pixar Parade looks like fun -- I don't think I have ever seen any pictures of it. Love the picture of the Little Green Man.

Wow! World of Color looks amazing! I imagine the music is sensational!

Good luck with packing and getting ready for your next Disney adventure.
Okay, okay, I caved. Well, the legos were 50% and 40% off!!!! I had these Borders rewards coupons and so since they were on the "list" you know THE LIST, I couldn't ignore them... so too was that dag gum pillow pet... Hopefully they have a better pillow pet styled animal here and I can get that instead...

World of Color was very very cool!!! AND the parade, yes. So fun!!

Again, I love all of the DL pictures.....the details on all of the rides in the Pixar area are brilliant...as was the parade....loved The Incredibles on their little hovercraft!! Too cute! I of all of the Pixar movies!
World of Color looks amazing...I can imagine that in person it is beautiful paired with the music....maybe I will check it out on youtube

Okay....get packing and have fun!!! We will be here when you get back!

Tracy
Thanks so much for the bon voyage!!!! It worked! We are here, and I am drinking coffee in our room looking out the window at partially sunny skies and low 80s today.. much better than sunny and 50 at my house!

DL photos, I still have a whole day to go -- Disneyland proper! California Adventure was fun, but they are doing some mass redesigning there, which I think is much needed and will improve the park overall, but more on that later!

I should be able to post on DL later tonight....

Oh I will have that hot chocolate for sure! But what I really want is the peppermint icecream hot chocolate float!! or at least the peppermint icecream!!!

Already having fun! I am sitting in our room right now, getting ready to head around on a resort tour to see the decorations! Pool side yesterday, a bit more cloudy today, hoping it will burn off. Still, low 80s can't complain!

Oh, that sounds so delicious! I bought Edy's Peppermint ice cream this weekend, and we had it in waffle bowls last night with a big mound of whipped cream!

Boo to YOU, DAY, TWO!

Yeah, that was a bad rhyme….

So this morning, we all woke up, got into our Halloween gear, and headed out the door for a ropedrop of 7am… YEP, we did it! I had to get us to Disneyland on time for that early morning entrance b/c we had to go back and check out at 11am.


These two photos of the entrance gate are from when we came back into the park at noon, but either the pics I took when we first arrived that morning were deleted, or, I didn’t take any!! LOL! Too excited I guess!
Notice even in the afternoon, hardly anyone was there.






I caught this as we went under the rail station and onto Main Street. I think these are at WDW too?



And of course a very, very busy Main Street… Some of these are blurry but I wanted to share the experience wih you.


















Great decorations, as I would have expected!

We were headed to a very specific location in Tomorrowland… the Halloween overlay at Space Mountain!

More in the next post! Coming UP!
