Nice short TR Liza. I like the last picture of the Matterhorn with the popcorn stand. Also the pictures of the pins were very nice.

Thanks, Bret. I just love Disneyland in the spring. So many beautiful flowers and the colors! It only happens once a year and is a treat to behold.

That is one of the reasons why I like having the AP. I like seeing the Park during the different seasons of the year. The colors of spring, the red white and blue colors of the summer, the fall colors and lastly, the Christmas colors at the end of the year are truly wonderful. Instead of having one picture of DL in memory, I have a whole year of the Park dressed in its seasons attire.

I really like the two pin styles you shared with us. But really like the shots of the cascades.

Boy pics do come in handy don't they? After writing my first TR this year my husband & I have pic taking agendas to make the TR even easier like shots of clocks (the ones with the right time) and being sure to include at least one pic of ques and shows so we know what order things were in and entering & exiting pics so we know better where one day ends and the next begins should help with the Halloween TR... since this time the trip is 8 days with 6 of them in DLR I am going to need those pics as a guide to keep it all from blending together!

I'm kind of late to the party but am enjoying your trip report immensely.

Your friend Joy looks like she is a blast! Your pictures are great. Looking forward to more!

I have been known to take a picture of my own watch when I can not find a clock. People look at me weird when I do that, but when in DL people do weird things. So I feel right at home.

Welcome, TK! Late comers are welcomed here with open arms, especially you . Your kind words about my pics are very much appreciated. Joy is a blast and we have a secret trip we are trying to cooking up for Thursday. Got to see if we can arrange pick ups and get away for the day.

The reason for yet another day trip is... it is my birthday! And I want to go to Disneyland with Joy. I wonder if the Day Trip Gods are busy...

That must be so exciting to have a secret trip this week. Hope you have a great birthday trip at DL.

Well Joy can not make it after all. So I think I will stay home and go see a movie for something. I have been going to DL quite a bit lately and I should take a break. Looks like the next visit could be the Star Tours 2 AP preview in May. That is if I get selected to preview it.

Sorry to hear about that Liza. Hoping that you get selected for the Star Tour 2 AP Sneak Peak Liza and I'm hoping for the same thing when i go down later in May. I would guess that you selected all the available dates for the sneak peak?

Sorry about Joy.

I think odds a probably pretty good. Over several days they should be able to run a lot of people through the attraction.

Thanks Bret and Matt. I did chose all days and time slots when I signed up. I figured that whatever day I got I could make it happen. I am hoping for Monday, Saturday or Sunday. That way my kids can come with me. If not, DH and I will go.

I had won a sneak peak time slot for Toy Story Mania in 2008. It was on a Tuesday, so my girls couldn't go. My DH and I went and had a blast. We were told the first time we entered to get back in line if there was no one in line when we finished. We could keep getting back into an empty line for the duration of my time slot which was from 10am to 2pm.. We must have rode TSM at least 10, 11 times. A week later, we were in WDW and riding their TSM on DL's TSM's opening day! Ah good times. Sometimes I am just too lucky.
