Thanx Vicki!! I've heard the Long Beach Airport is nice & small too....but I still think the Orange Cty one is closest......but can't say for sure. When it comes to flying I like to know what to expect....so chances are I won't be changing airports anytime soon!!

After our ride on POTC, we decided it was time to eat.....we got up at 4am but didn't ever have any breakfast. We headed straight to the new Jolly Holiday to get lunch. They actually have a queing line.....lol We probably were in line for 30 minutes before reaching the counter........I took advantage of our wait time to get pictures of everything I could. Mary Poppins is the inspiration for this new bakery/restaurant. The little touches in the light fixtures, wood work, windows & display cases were beautiful!

Amazing light fixtures throughout the restaurant:











The menus:





Love the stained glass penguins!!











More to come!!

The line splits in two & this what was in the display case to the left.








Now we've finally made it to the front of the line....so I tried to get some food porn pics for you.......











This was our lunch order:



Tyler got the Jolly Holiday Combo (Toasted Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Basil Soup).



I had the Caprese Sandwich (Tomato & Mozzarella) with house chips (kettle).



We both got the Practically Perfect Punch. I'd say it was lemonade with either a berry or cherry kicker....couldn't pinpoint exactly but the lemonade tended to be the flavor you got.



Ty & shared our meals & both were delicious!!! The soup was so good with a nice basil touch. The grilled cheese was a tasty compliment for the soup!! The caprese sandwich was on focaccia bread with a basil vinaigrette. I think they went a bit heavy on the vinaigrette....but it was so good....I was able to forgive them!! lol

With the Carnation Cafe being closed for the remodel, I was wondering what would happen to Oscar. I know his wife had been ill, but I was afraid he might retire.....so I'm very happy to report that Oscar is out front greeting guests, taking pictures, just sharing his love of Disneyland & food with anyone that will stop & talk with him. He does plan on going back to the Carnation Cafe when it re-opens....so yay!!



As we are heading out of the seating area:





Ty & I ran over to the castle to get a picture done before I headed back to the motel to get ready for Meet-n-Greet.....I had an entire suitcase filled with party stuff I needed to take over to the Carousel Inn.

Laurie, I am loving your reports! I have read 3 of them this morning! It's kind of funny because every time I see a pic of Mike, I think to myself..."there's my Safeway guy!" We will have to meet up one of these days after things settle down for you a bit and have coffee and some Disney talk The Jolly Holiday looks like a fun place with great food- those strawberry lemon cupcakes look yummy! So glad that you got to chat with Oscar too- I hope we see him when we are there in a few weeks! Really enjoying your photos and can't wait to read more

I said goodbye to Ty & headed out of the parks & to the Ramada Inn. I gathered all the meet-n-greet items & headed towards the Carousel Inn. I got up to the room, to find I was the first to arrive. It was nice & cool, so I sat & waited for the rest of the committee to show up. Jen came in shortly after I did & then the rest of the committee started coming in with all the food & decorations. We got a huge delivery of snacks from the ladies staying at the Grand Californian.....it filled up a luggage rack.....I mean it REALLY FILLED UP A LUGGAGE RACK!!! lol So this was the start of the snack table.







I pretty much figured we had most of the goodies....there was a ton of stuff already & a good variety!!

As I was working on the table....the rest of the room was taking shape. We did find out that one of the boxes of decorations never made it to one of our committee members.....so no candelabras! (but I think it looked amazing anyways)









The Carousel Inn placed this sign outside the room....so we'd keep motel guests from joining in.



A couple more table decorations:




Some of our ghost hostesses!



Capri~Katie~Tammy



Capri~Beth~Wendy~Katie

The Dis Diva's Mascot~~~Tinkerbites!!

We do need to get together once life gets back to "normal"....whatever that is.....lol I'm so glad you're getting to go for a trip in a few weeks....YAY!!!!! Spring break is not my favorite time to go, due to crowds....but hopefully you'll be there during a slower of the spring break times. Take advantage of weekdays if you can.....mid-week, even during the hectic times can prove to be very manageable days. Also wake up early & get to the parks to do some rides & gathering some FP's!!

The Jolly Holiday was very good......Oscar is a nice touch to promote this new restaurant......he's definitely Disneyland celebrity!!

We have Quizno's cater our party....or at least the sandwiches. I think the salads were done by Wendy &/or Tammy. We also bring chips & cookies.....as well as drinks (lots of drinks!!). I'm super disappointed because I didn't get a close up pic of the alcohol bottles & mixers.....one of the ladies had made up labels to fit our Party of Peril theme. They were awesome!!








So here is the completed snack table.......are you hungry???







Melody presenting this years shirt!! Melody & her son design & decorate these shirts......absolutely stunning. Last years shirt & this years shirt generated a lot of oohs & aahs in the parks & people wanting to buy one!!




The group secretly had collected gift cards for Melody to surprise her at the party. This was our way of thanking her for all her hard work & dedication to the group & taking on making all these shirts. (we had 51 ladies for this trip....I think that was final tally)




She's such a sweet lady!!! Love Ya Mel!!

I am so hungry looking at all those snacks! Yummy!

I need to think of some Canadian goodies (besides Smarties) that I can bring down for next trip.

Those shirts are amazing! I totally love them. I want one! Haha. She does a great job.

There was a ton!!! The Canadian Smarties are always a big hit....so if you have another hidden secret up there......feel free to share it with us!!

This year, the gals that wanted a purple shirt from last year was able to order one from Melody......It's possible you'll be able to order a pink one next year!! They really are fabulous....especially in the sunlight!!

Really? That would be awesome. When it comes time to order shirts, if we do that this year, I would love one.

They seem to wear the prior years shirt on one of the days.....but we may want to use the purple castle shirt again...so who knows!! Hopefully, we will & she'll make the offer to make some for our newbies!!

The decorations for the M&G were fabulous. I am looking forward to seeing what the committee comes up for next year's theme. Melody's shirt design looks like that of a professional. She's one talented Diva.

The tags from the party? I took a pic of mine. They were "toe tags" to go with the theme. It had the person's name, cause of death (if the villian had won), place of death (Party of Peril), date of death (Feb 23, 2012) & from the Office of:.......... (the name of the movie it came from). I actually based these tags off a picture of a real one. So everyone's was different.
