We were right up next to the railing and could see everything with NO blocking. I personally feel if you have kids you should either come early enough to get up close or if you are going to put them on your shoulders do NOT block others behind you. I have had that happen at the fireworks too.

I don't know why people think that they are any better or more deserving than anyone else. ESP when you pay so much for the dinning you expect to be able to see!

Excited for the next installment.
I wish they wouldn't allow that.....there's absolutely no way you can do that & not block somebodies view.....you'd think it would be a safety thing as well. You're not as steady if you have someone up on your shoulders & if the crowd around you shifted....it could easily become a bad, bad thing!! Oh well,.......I could handle most of it, I just wish the ears weren't flashing & such.

Day Three~Hot Pink DisDivaLand shirts!!

Michelle & I headed towards Disneyland about 7:45am & ended up meeting up with Trudi, Sarah & Rochelle at the pedestrian crossing. We headed up Main Street & Michelle goes to one of the stores looking for socks, while Sarah & Rochelle head to the Jolly Holiday to get a hot drink. That left Trudi & I.....we went towards the Partner's Statue when we saw a photopass photographer.

So I got my pic taken:



And then they had us do one together!



I think the Partner's Statue is the prettiest in early spring.




We went up towards the castle to wait for the rest of the ladies to arrive for our group photo. While we waited, I had a picture done in front of the castle.





As the ladies came together....the Mother/Daughter groups went to do their traditional photo together. This year for the picture we had 4 sets. Then it was time to gather our very large group for our picture. It took a while to get us set in a way they could see all of us. Eventually we got it together & this is the outcome!



After the picture, the ladies shifted over to the Plaza Gardens to prepare for the Scavenger Hunt. The teams grouped & started getting their "costumes" & props on.

A few of the Scavy Hunt Committee members: Katie, Jessica, Bridget & Wendy.



Becci, Brandi, Nicole & Cynthia:



Lisa keeping watch over her team's purses:



Carol, Lisa, Allison & Michelle:



Holly, Jen & Sarah:



Monica, Jen, Jodi & Lisa:



Jamay, Capri, Steph, Beth & Kandace:



More scavy hunt to come!

I tried to figure out if I wanted to give the results with the team pictures or to keep you guessing who won.....the problem is....I don't really have pics of all the awards given at the end of the hunt......so I think I'll list the teams & what they won here in this post.

So the First Place Team was the Marathoning MousekeSleuthers~~Jen, Holly & Sarah (our only 3 member team)



Our Second Place Team was the Mouse Adventurer Spy Racers~~Jill, Stacie, Daisy & Vicki



Our Third Place Team was The Great Racing Mouse Detectives.....they also won the Best Dressed Team~~Jodi, Jen, Monica & Lisa



Best Team Name went to the Pixie Powered Dashing Diva Detectives~~Steph, Capri, Jamay & Kandace



The Last Place Team was the Lightning Diva Super Sleuths~~Brandi, Becci, Cynthia & Nicole



The other teams:
Ravishing Racing InvestigatEARS~~



We thought they might be running as a 3 member team, but Juliette showed up right before they took off!!
Sarah, Juliette, Michelle & Rochelle



The Meandering Mousers~~Linda, Lisa, Patrice & Brianne



Finn McMissile Racin' Investigation~~Lisa, Carol, Allison & Michelle



The Scavy Hunt Committee~~Wendy, Katie, Bridget, Trudi, Melody & Jessica



Once the teams were ready, Melody & her committee explained the rules & what was in the packets.



















The cute little briefcases were made by Trudi.

I love the pics of the Ariel Ride. I wish WDW had that ride

The pink trees with pink shirts like others have said, makes for a gorgeous photo

That scavenger hunt looks like a blast. That is so cool Disneyland lets you ladies do that.

Great costumes

Love how everyone got certificates with their pics. I can't even imagine all the work that goes into the scavenger hunt

I thought WDW had an Ariel ride of some sorts??

Love the pink trees......early spring is really beautiful in the parks. The shirt was just a bonus!!

There was actually another scavy hunt going on that day too!!!

Each team comes up with their name, costumes & signs/lanyards/name tags.

The scavy hunt meets a number of times through out the year to put together this hunt. It's full of trivia, locating where pics were taken, collecting items & puzzles.....a great mix!! They also do a great job!!!

Laurie the others are right the pics of you and Trudi with those trees are just beautiful!! I took a few pics of those trees as well cuz they were SO pretty!

The group pic turned out awesome and the scavy hunt looked like lots of fun!!

And maybe you are thinking about the nemo ride at epcot? It is similar to Aerial in that you ride in clam shells and it is very similiar except it is about Nemo of course LOL. The ride itself has a lot of the same stuff as the sub ride at DL.

But the other poster was right they do have the Little Mermaid show at Hollywood Studios but I thought I heard they were making a similiar Little Mermaid ride at DW. Perhaps in the new Fantasyland??

As always looking forward to the next installment!
