It really was a neat visit. I wish we had more time, I confess, as I look at my pictures I keep thinking I swear I took photos of this and that, and while I know some of my images were corrupted, some I must have just "taken" with my eyes, b/c there was just so much to see and do and we didn't get to. That is okay, though. More for next time! We somehow make it out to California every so often!

I just didn't need it, and flying makes you second guess it. BUT had we been with a car, I would have totally managed to buy one... They really were adorable.

Can't believe you are going back so soon. Color me jealous!

Happy Thanksgiving to the Happydog family!
Happy Thanksgiving to you too!!!! We had a great time. It was very enjoyable. I guess I just didnt need the bucket, you know? I dont need a lot of my Disney purchases, but I wanted to at least get one I knew I could use! I bought a very nice souvenir, and it was worth putting my $10 there.

Of course I am still interested in the Happy Dog Clan's trip to Disneyland. As if you needed to ask!

Eight people for Thanksgiving? Wow! We are headed to my sister-in-law's. We counted yesterday, and I think we came up with 20 people total! Madness, I tell you! Her mother-in-law and her mother are cooking two turkeys -- 45 pounds of meat! Can you imagine??? Needless to say, Michelle (my SIL) and I consume a lot of wine on this holiday.

Have fun with your Black Friday shopping. I twitch at the mere thought of it and have been trying to get our "big items" before they are all sold out on Friday. I found a Lego Hogwarts at Walmart the other day (the only one I have seen anywhere) and grabbed it up for Connor.

How horrible about your corrupted camera chip! Glad it didn't ruin all the pictures.

Okay, now on to your great updates!

California Screamin'! I thought it was hilarious that even your DH only rode it once! No way, no how as the Cowardly Lion would say.

I know a lot of DISers who would be in heaven at the Corn Dog Castle. LOL!

Grizzly River Run looks right up our alley! We love water rides! I think the Soarin' queue is so much better at Disneyland (not that I have ever seen it in person), but I would much rather gaze at airplane memorabilia while waiting to glide through California.

Can't believe DH left the popcorn bucket.

I had no idea about the Monsters, Inc. ride! We love that movie at our house -- and what a hoot about Roz!

Cute Buzz and Woody cups! How can you resist Buzz and his wings that really open???

Ah, Bugs Land made me all nostalgic. Chelsea's favorite movie when she was about two was A Bug's Life! We watched it over and over again, and her birthday that year was A Bug's Life party. Flik's Flyers are adorable! Love all the cartons!!!

Okay, ready for more Happy Dog Clan California Adventures!

Oh I know I know, it is just for whatever reason getting this one off the ground really took a while!

YAY! Good for you! I am SO going on a lego strike this holiday. At least right now I am. I just cannot stomach the idea of more legos in my house!!!! The HP sets are soooo cute, and Griffin is already looking at them, and I am thinking WHERE are we going to have room for these??!! Borders in our area sells legos, and I got a 50% coupon on email today... Good for today only. MAY have to see about that one...

I just like going out and being a shopping adventurer... it isn't as fun anymore, with all the deals offered before the holiday and such, not as much of a "surprise" when you hear about what WILL be on sale before tomorrow, but I still get in my car when the house is quiet, and with my coffee and little list enjoy Christmas music and being out there with the other nutty shoppers! I am going home at 10am while everyone else is going out!

Yes, I was pretty bummed out. Especially because I took several ocean pics of the boys, but I still have most so that is a good thing.
Okay, now on to your great updates!

OH I know!!! Seriously! Me too!!! NO WAY! I think Cynthia's kids ALL totally enjoyed it. NOT me "No way, no how!" OH! Speaking of the Cowardly Lion. That is our Thanksgiving day movie tradition....

I know! I laughed at that one -- LL -- no nuggets, though!!

Grizzly River Run was VERY cool. I didn't bring my camera on it, well, I mean I had it, in a shopping bag, in the middle. I wasn't sure what to expect so I wasn't brave enough to bring it out at any point. IT was very very cool.. We lucked out in the wet department... even with ponchos DS8 got a bit wet in the seat...

I know! My World of Color bucket, GONE Oh well. It would probably be sitting upstairs like the other ones

We had the FPs for Soarin, so we didn't see much, but the queue was neat.

The Monster's Inc ride was AMAZING very very neat. I didn't realize they had that there, either. The one in Tokyo Disney I think is somewhat modeled on it? Did you read Lurkyloo's TR? I was thrilled. We rode it twice in a row, no lines!

Bug's Land AMAZING. I so now want to go back to just get it all -- what I missed. SO many details, so much fun. I can only imagine the Imagineers who came up with all this. What a great job. Nolyn loves that movie too. We just finally watched it, though last year (the boys). They loved it. We love Heimlich.

And yes, BUZZ and Woody... Sigh.

This and That update!

Well hello everyone!

Just got back from my Black Friday shopping madness! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We leave for our little getaway at the AK in TWO days!!! I am no where near ready, the Holiday didn't necessarily help! But I can't complain, especially since I just ate a plate of leftovers a few minutes ago... Can I say I LOVE Thanksgiving leftovers!!! YUM!

So I am getting ready to finish up my updates for California Adventure. We have dinner and World of Color to go and then I'll start working on Halloween! And our Disneyland day... Which was a great day!

I did head out for Black Friday today. I know I know -- crazy. But I wasn't shopping for electronics, so generally that makes it less chaotic!

I took advantage of some great 50% and 40% off coupons for Harry Potter legos at Border's Books. And I got my 99cent poinsettias at Home Depot! I also grabbed supplies at Michael's, and my Hallmark store -- buying my annual Jim Shore santa, and a pillow pet for my 5yr old. WHY he wants one of these I have NO idea. There are nicer one's I think at Disney!? I think WigD bought one at the AK? Does anyone remember seeing these anywhere else? I am afraid they only sell them in the park... I want to compare those with the Pillow Pet. I remember thinking the ones at Disney seemed really nice in quality. I grabbed cute Life is Good PJ pants for them, too, and the whole lot was 25% off. I also grabbed the Leaptser games which were $15.00 each at Target. the Penguin's of Madagascar and Toy Story 3 versions.

I plan to be back later this afternoon to post my update! Stay tuned!

Love your California Adventure updates!
You got some great deals. I am planning on doing a little shopping tonight and this weekend. I'm afraid of the crowds

Disney in 2 days It'll fly by. At least you're busy with holiday stuff.

Looking forward to you're next update!

A PIXAR Parade!

Back to the park we went, and just in time for the afternoon parade!

Here are some festive Halloween balloons while we were waiting...



Soon, the parade came into view…







My friend Roz, had a role as grand marshall!







As the name suggests this parade was entirely Pixar. It was incredible. In my opinion, it is the best daytime Disney parade I have seen (save the holiday and Halloween parades). Just so much going on and so much fun!! It actually reminded me a lot of the Animal Kingdom parade, with all of the apparatus that the CMs used. It was great fun.





































Again, some didn't come out for me -- but at least you can get a taste of it! The acrobats were the best performers for sure!

More to come in the NEXT POST!!!!!

Electronica and World of COLOR!

Parade ending, it was now time to check out Electronica, and confirm that no one in our party wanted to ride Tower of Terror. Nope. Not going to do it. LOL! Here is the TRON fun they had at Disney California Adventure. They had a “street” party entertainment in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot area, including a 3-D “sneak peek” of TRON…
VERY VERY Cool. Here are some shots of the “Electronica” PreShow…









The light was fading, so we needed to make our dinner reservation at Wine Country Trattoria (where we had booked the World of Color package).
Here are a few pics along the way up to the restaurant. Dinner was good. It wasn’t the best Disney meal I have had, but it was worth the expense. I think the signature restaurants at WDW (which I think this qualifies as one of their better restaurant on Disneyland property) are far better. There is a very well known restaurant, The Napa Rose, at the GC, but this wasn’t the trip to try that one out. The salad and entrée were quite good. Dessert was not memorable, but the wine list was. It was a “package” for preferred seating, and had a three course meal and beverage with the package. This worked out best for us going into it all, b/c I had no idea what everything was going to be like. This was a back area not the actual restaurant, but inside this building they had all the models and renderings for the new projects they are working on right now. Very neat! Carsland, and Ariel's "something" LOL! I'll re-update and borrow a few photos to share with you.







After dinner we had a half hour before the World of Color show. We got ice cream for the boys and made our way to the viewing area. And then it began! I love Fantasmic. This blew Fantasmic out of the water. Literally. LOL!






























Back to the room! The halls always seem SOOOOOO much longer when you are tired!!! LOL!







A very sleepy us planned for a great morning celebrating Halloween Disneyland style, including early morning magic hours at 7am!!!
WOOT WOOT!

More coming up tomorrow!!!

Hi there! Well, you should definitely make a trip out there. It wont disappoint. So your Tiger was a Pillow Pet, too? Okay well then maybe they are are the same... I will check the stores this week, to see if there are different ones. I thought they looked different. Not sure. The penguin is awfully cute, though

I missed our advanced booking day for dining on the cruise in February... OH I am mad. BUT, I did get at least one Paolo's reservation. Will be checking daily now, to see if anything opens up. AND will be waiting in line once we get on board, that is a definite. I have read that because so many repeat cruisers are going on many of the Dream bookings, they are able to book over 100 days in advance, and things are gone before the window for those of us with only a few cruises under our belt and new cruisers get to... I will be curious to see if there are any others released.

CUTE FB pics of the baby and your Thanksgiving preparations!

I missed our advanced booking day for dining on the cruise in February... OH I am mad. BUT, I did get at least one Paolo's reservation. Will be checking daily now, to see if anything opens up. AND will be waiting in line once we get on board, that is a definite. I have read that because so many repeat cruisers are going on many of the Dream bookings, they are able to book over 100 days in advance, and things are gone before the window for those of us with only a few cruises under our belt and new cruisers get to... I will be curious to see if there are any others released.

CUTE FB pics of the baby and your Thanksgiving preparations!
No, the tiger isn't a pillow pet, just similar.
We probably won't get any of the Palo ressies either since we are only 2nd time cruisers.
Our exciting news was that we upgraded to a larger veranda stateroom a few weeks ago, so I was pleased!

It's been busy around here, with new baby and Harper! Wowza!

I too desperately want to visit DL someday! Just the idea of being in the park and walk where Walt walked just thrills me!!!

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!!!

We love Thanksgiving leftovers, too! That's what we ate yesterday while we were decorating the house.

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.
