Well, I am afraid it isn't much! But that is becuase we saved our dollars for Legoland!!! And I knew I was going to WDW for the short MVMCP trip, so I was saving my $ for then! BUT here we go with the final few pics and post!!!!

A final few Photos and my souveniers!

So on this trip, I really didn't buy too much. In fact, I think knowing I was going to be at Disneyworld shortly after made me realize I could get most of what I would want while I was on that solo trip. So I searched for something "unique" ... her is what I came up with!






The insert describes the tiles, that they are hand pressed, etc., and a little more about the Grand Californian. I thought this was a unique and original gift to take back for myself.

Of course no HD family Disney trip is complete without at least TWO marshmallow sticks... so we got these at the candy store there in DTD...



These were actually Caramel and Chocolate dipped before they were rolled in Candy corn... they were SO heavy!!! We pull them off the stick and cut them into pieces.. the boys eat them over a few days, too much for one sitting!!


Of course I hope you recall these winners... thanks to DH...

Yes, I had to find room in my suitcase for these!



Oh, and my World of Color popcorn bucket that I didn't get to keep...

ANYWAY, actually, everyone, that is it! We bought more souvies in Legoland for OBVIOUS reasons, and I shopped a little in La Jolla, for non Disney fun!
Wait, can that actually happen??!!

I forgot to add this... the Photopass pics of the boys at the "fashion show"




I will say, of our Starwars costumes, those costumes which were NOT cheap, they were in tatters by the end of the night. My kids really wore them!!! Well, mostly the little one, I think he stepped on the fabric and that started it to stretch and fray... My plan is to remove all of the cool foam and molded pieces on the suits, and recraft suits for them, and then attach these pieces back on. I can sew, so making these will be a cinch. If we were going to Star Wars weekends, like SOME PEOPLE I KNOW.... cough cough we could wear them, but alas, I will probably just keep this craft project until next time we need starwars costumes!!! I think I can retrofit them for next year Of course my DH says TRON will be the big costume next year. I don't think the interest will hold, but we will see...

So as I said earlier, thanks for being here with me as I celebrated Halloween in Disneyland!

The rest of the FALL FUN vacation for the Happy Dog crew will be shared in my NEW PTR for our CRUISING extravaganza! Both the getaway cruise in February for DH and I, and our Summer vacation... the 5 day Disney Dream Cruise (2 days Castaway CAY!!!) and five days at Disney's Vero Beach!!! First cruise for our boys!!! And a first stay in Vero for all of us!! I will start it after New Year's ... so be on the lookout We have to have something to while away the winter months!!! In the mean time, please come over to my Mickey Very Merry Christmas Party Trip Report!!! It has already started, the link is BELOW in my signature!!!!
Hope you come on over!!!

Oh my gosh, I think one bite of those marshmallow candies would be plenty - that sounds like sugar overload!!

I really like your tile, very unique to your trip, what a great find!

I'm so looking forward to reading about your February cruise - it'll make waiting for mine that much easier!

Great wrap-up, Happydog! The tile is really neat -- did you put it in your kitchen? Those candy corn treats are outrageous!!! Good idea to eat them over a couple of days! The photopass pics are great -- the Fetts on the catwalk!

Such a shame about those costumes! Of course, it does seem a shame not to use them again for SWW...

Thanks for sharing your fun Disneyland trip with us! Can't wait to finish reading about the fun you had on the Christmas trip and hear all about your planning for your cruise and Vero stay!

There was a lot going on in those marshmallow sticks for sure!!! But they were tasty apparently, b/c the guys didn't have trouble eating them

I am happy with the tile, too, just something that suits my house. I am looking forward to the February cruise! It should be fun. I have to definitely take lots of pics and notes!!!!

I would LOVE to use those costumes again, CP, TRUST me!!! HOW soon is the question!!! the treats were crazy sweet, really heavy and pure heaven I had a bite, I must confess, and I don't even LIKE candy corn!!! I liked the catwalk pics, too... they made me laugh.. Great embarassment factor for when they are older!!

The tile is actually on a built in bookshelf in my family room, just with a few other little things I have collected around in my travels. It fit nicely there.

The cruise planning is coming along, will start that PTR next weekend!
