The dream store layout looks similar to what I remember from 2009...where I spent too much on a piece of art...good times....

See everyone tomorrow!

What a great necklace! I'm super green over here....but super happy for you.

Did you get the matching ring in the end?


That's a fabulous looking store. Was everything in there exclusive?


ps. I fail the Disney Geek test.

Did you get anything? Maybe when the bed is made you can take picture of your loot laid out on the white background.

I was so tired last night, I quoted your entries, but didn't comment!

I'm not sure how I would actually make it through life without living so close! It's just been a given for me for 30 years that I can go anytime I want. It's pretty sweet!

Thanks! I hope that I can keep it up for this one. I forgot to bring a notepad and pen like I had at Destination-D...must check the gift store!

What's nice is most everything on the show floor seems to be laid out the same as last time, so I already feel like I know where I'm going.

The jewelery was. In fact remember that necklace I bought when you were here? It was designed by the woman who did the other designs. I bought some earrings from them at Destination-D55 and both she and I were wearing the Mickey Journey pendant. She commented on my good taste!

We're still debating on the rings. We have until Sunday.

Good job Usnuz and Firefly! Yeah, having Snow White juxtaposed into that portrait was a really cute twist! We are still on the fence with that one too, but it will be available in the parks for a while to come.

Mostly we got shirts and some pins. We'll see how organized I am when I get back to the room late tonight!

So after picking up my necklace we moseyed over to some of the pieces that were up for auction on Saturday night.

Not a big fan of the jungle cruise, so I'll pass on this one....



Definitely not a vinylmation fan, but someone will drool over this:



You know, I'd like this one, but can't find the room....



A car from Peter Pan might be a nice addition to the Living Room...I wonder if the cats would like sleeping in the car?



This is kinda cool



Alice would probably fit in the living room, she's small



I'm not sure where I would put this pair!?!?!?



Here is a look toward the Parks and Resorts Pavilion (we weren't allowed in that area Thursday) definitely hitting it today.



The corner window



Here you can see the Black Pearl (again part of the show floor they didn't let us on)



Here is the vinylmation and pin trading area that opens Friday



They had these cute ear hats in there









And the Dream Store as they escorted us off the show floor



So Back to the Hilton. Here are some shots of the lobby and the lounge where we had our DISmeet





First we headed to dinner at the restaurant in the hotel

We shared the onion soup for a starter. Yummy!



I had the "create your own pasta" Whole Wheat Penne with vegetables and tukey bolognese



Fran had the Mahi Mahi with a mushroom cream sauce and mashed potatoes



Then we headed out to the lounge for a meet! There were about a dozen of us there and by around 9:30 we all called it a night!







What a fun day so far! Now on to the real deal!

I love all your pics!! Excellent update! I LOVE your new necklace!

Your hotel looks nice. We like to stay in Hilton brand hotels (also Marriott). We find them to be clean, and comfy. Looks like everyone had a good time at your DIS meet! I am soooo jealous that you live so close! I am closer to WDW than Disneyland, and I still have to drive for a couple of days to make it down there!

Those art pieces are very nice too. I like the Alice one. No room in my house for any of those, but it is nice to dream!

You have a really great room view of (the back of) Cars Land. I like how you can see Sleeping Beauty Castle, the Matterhorn, Space Mountain, and Cars Land all at once - sort of past, present, and future view.

I'm surprised that I didn't see dozens of Disneyland Monorail sets in the Dream Store pictures - are they gone already?

Between your updates, Disney has been posting some good pictures of the Legends ceremony: http://twitter.com/#!/DisneyD23

I really wish I were there!

Love your latest update! But then I'm a tragic where food is concerned....and yes, that store looks FANTASTIC! Wish I were there.

Nice looking DisMeet crowd. Anyone want to point out who's who?
