And thanks for the informative TR. It's about the closest I'm going to get to a D23 event and seeing that kind of money being spent!


On to the next PTR/TR
Yep! You'll even see a new PTR coming very soon!

Thanks! We're wrapping up our trip at the VGC and it has been a lot of fun!

The Napa Rose, the lobster ravioli, the desserts! It all looks so good. BTW, I completely understand being upset with Fran because she ate too much of the cake pop. I get the same way about shared food. Stephanie calls it "food bowl aggression".


Stomach growling, off to eat a sad, sad, bowl of oatmeal.
At least your oatmeal is healthy!

Thank you for sharing.

You're welcome! I hope you enjoy your trip over NYE! We'll be staying over just for that one night.

Going to DLH we would pass a Strawberry field to our right. ( That looks like the one I saw in the picture Ali posted). Even back then it was a bit spendy for a campground--but we were able to use the DL pool. ( We never did though). Going to try and look up the name of that road between Campground and DLH. It has been so long and my memory sems to be playing mean tricks on me . I hate not being able to remember the important stuff and Disney is important stuff .

Thanks for the info on the campground. I must have been too young to remember, besides my parents didn't camp!

You're welcome! Thanks for joining along!

You did a fantastic job on this trip report. I am so impressed with the details you remembered. I can’t believe how tired Stephen Clark looked in your pictures. I don’t remember that he looked like that when we were there.
On page three of your TR you have a picture of the painting with Snow White in the pose of the Haunted Mansion picture of the woman on the tight rope, holding an umbrella. You say, “We really liked this one, and only a real Disney geek would understand it's meaning.” Please explain the meaning of this painting to me. I consider myself a “Geek” and I do not get the meaning.
Again I want to thank you for the great TR, and also thank you for taking your time to put this together. I truly enjoyed it.
Marla aka Tinkcollector
P.S. I found the CM name badges on E-Bay.
Glad you enjoyed it. Some of the followers explained the pictures in the TR. What it was is that they were the stretching portraits from the Haunted Mansion, but Disney characters were juxtaposed in place of the characters that are in the HM.

Glad you found those name badges!

See you all next time around!

Thanks for you explanation of the HM/Snow White painting. I was reading way more into it. I thought maybe there was some kind of symbolism I was missing with the addition of the castle, two wooden crocks, and Snow White. Thanks again for the great report. I'm looking forward to your next one.

With the next Expo coming up I was looking for this TR and realized I never linked it in my signature. I bumped it up from my cell so that I could update my sig on the kaputer.

Will you be doing another PTR or TR for the upcoming expo? I really enjoyed reading your experience at the sorcerer level.

I will be doing a TR for the 2013 Expo, this year I am a Sorcerer, last time I was a Premiere pass holder. It was cool as we got into everything in the Arena, but we still had to wait for all the other presentations. I hope to see much more this time!

I thought Sorcerers could only get into the Arena events and Stage 23 in 2013. Still, that cuts about 6 hours of waiting....

You're right. Last time that was just about everything, but this year they added Stage 28. I forgot that I read that.
