We arrive at the Paradise Pier Hotel & self park in the parking garage. Busy place....but eventually we found a spot. We made our way inside & waited for everyone to arrive. I asked the ladies in attendance if they were ok with Tyler joining us. I didn't want to make anyone feel uncomfortable because we had a guy with us....but everyone seemed ok with it. I did ask Ty to stay out of the group pic and take pictures instead.




After we did the group, I asked if Ty & I could do a picture with Mickey.



I got a picture of Carol and her daughter Lisa posing with Mickey.



When we were being led to our table.....Stitch was on the floor & wearing a little girl's Stitch BackPack......so cute!!



Part of the group went up to get food, Sarah & I had stayed at the table to watch everyone's stuff. She told me she was going to go do a picture with Tinkerbell after breakfast with her Tink Half-Marathon Medal. The line for Tink after the race was always so long that Sarah decided to wait and just do it another time. I asked if I could see her medal & then I got a picture of her wearing it!!


WAY TO GO SARAH!!!

Here are some delicious looking Food Porn pics!!









Pluto & Stitch were dancing in the front, so I hopped up to get a couple pics.




Minnie came for a visit....here's Ty & I with her (she loved my nails!!)



Here's Ty & I with Pluto!



And here we are with Stitch.....he's so playful.




Gotta love the nose picking......lol



Stitch started it......he tried to pick Ty's nose....so we only felt it was fair that we picked his!!! lol

Jen decided to fix Stitch's tuft of hair.



After breakfast, we said our goodbyes and headed back to the parking garage. Ty's knee was really hurting, so Michelle drove us down to Target to get a knee brace. We got back to the motel & I wrapped Ty's knee & we were off to the parks. Michelle was having sinus issues/headache so she decided to lay down for a little bit before joining us.

Laurie,

I meant to mention how much I liked the picture of Dale with the service dog. I think that picture could win one of those contests they have for favorite holiday pictures.

Your girls are fun & hopefully we'll be able to get the kids together again. Shelby and I could get into all sorts of trouble I think........probably a good thing we don't live close....I'd probably not be a very good influence......

If you like the cajun style of food (a little spice) you'd love this place!!

Tyler said it was really neat to see the interaction of Dale and the dog. The dog licked his eye for a while...lol This was the first time I've been at Disneyland and saw service dogs. I saw a number of them this weekend. I loved it!!

Love the updates. Ty got a lot of wonderful pictures of his MM.

Ralph Brennan's also looked really good. I am not a seafood eater, but did see a lot of things on the menu that sound yummy.

As always, love seeing the photos of Stitch interacting with everyone, he is so much fun!

Ty did.....made me feel like I was right with him!!

Oh the Jazz Kitchen is delicious!!! Just remember if you're going to do this as a meal....to allow time. It's a very relaxed, non-rushed meal.....so not a good place if you're hoping to be out of there in 30 minutes.

Stitch is always a lot of fun.....a real highlight to that meal!!

Ty & I headed to Disneyland, as Michelle rested. We headed towards IASW and noticed the area between Fantasyland & IASW had characters out.....the line to Rafiki was super short, so Ty jumped in line and did his best ??Mandrill-Baboon?? impression.



The next stop was with a penguin from Mary Poppins!! YAY!!! This was a new one for us!!




Eeyore & Tigger were the other two, but their lines were long & we didn't feel we needed to get pics with them this time. We headed to IASW and got in line. I noticed the weather vanes on the PFF area, so I zoomed in & got these pics.




While in line, we noticed this little bird on the antler of the topiary.




Some pictures of the Small World building.







A couple of the topiaries as we were in the boats.




The entrance to the ride.




No guarantees that these are in order as I'm taking pics from mine & Ty's camera.



Cinderella:






Alice in Wonderland:





More Small World to come.

You know now that you mention it I have never noticed the service dogs until our last trip. There were ones that were in training. I was thinking that the DLR is a great place to teach a dog about distractions.


Love the pictures of Small World. It truly is the happiest cruise in the world!

Mike & I had been talking about that very subject before I left on the trip.....I had never seen service dogs, but assumed they were allowed in. So I found it very interesting to see 4 different service dogs that weekend.

Long time lurker of your Trip Reports, first time commenter! I love following your (and your family's) adventures of Disney

The photo of Dale with the service dog is so adorable. I love how Disney is so accommodating for as many different people, so everyone can be happy and experience the Disney magic (hopefully!)
