I'm so excited about Carsland. Can't wait to experience it for myself after it opens. The tour I got of the under-construction site last fall was incredible. It just looks so cool.

When will you all (at least those who've never been or live east of California) be heading west to experience the DLR? I know it's on several of your bucket lists... you've gotta do it. Really.

We'll see... perhaps we just "just because"

DW wants to see Beauty & the Beast 3D. I do too. The original was the movie we went to on our first date. Always been a favorite for some reason... kind figure why.
I miss the California Roast Beef sandwich.

I forget you are a youngster Stopher, the first movie DW & I saw together was MOONRAKER. Our first date was dinner at Denny's across from Disneyland's Harbor House. This was after talking to her for an hour or so while she was waiting for her mother & I was waiting for the guy I carpooled with. Turns out she knew him and we took her to dinner and home.

I think 2013 in going to be our Disneyland trip...

But I promise you Christopher, when we do decide to go, you will definitley be the first to know.

Maybe we will try to co-ordinate with one of your trips... I could use a personal tour guide first time out.

OOOh - now they're rocking out to the "Eye of the Tiger." Pretty fun to watch my 7 yr old dance to it. She has no clue what they're saying, but she's moving pretty well.

I have an electric guitar...

I don't play (wish I did)...

But mine is a Fender Stratocaster.

Anyone see Wayne's World - where Wayne sees the guitar in the window, and says "It will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine". That is MY guitar. That exact one.

Autographed by Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, with a Wayne's World emblem on the back.

In some worlds I am, yes. In others - nope, I'm OOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLDDDDDD (specifically my kids' world). Though many of my DS15's friends think I'm cool - even though he doesn't.

Moonraker! Cool. Sounds like a great time. I miss going through Harbor House.

I didn't meet my wife at Disneyland. I met her while working at the LA County Music Center. I got to see a lot of great performances there though, including seeing Phantom of the Opera more than 200 times. (Not exciting for those who don't care for musical theatre - but I loved it!)

I did meet many great friends at DL, who I still am friends with all these years later.

As I've gone through household stuff that gets put away each November when the Christmas stuff comes out (framed pictures, knick-knack crap, you know - dust collectors) - putting the regular stuff back now - we have a lot of framed pictures that include some sort of Disney destination. Fancy that.

Arrive 7-8 and leave 7-13. Psyched for Carsland, WoC, Pirates, Haunted Mansion... Went once for a couple of days when DD was about 18 months. Her first coaster was the Matterhorn. Can't wait.

Saw it a couple of times when I was younger. Haven't seen it since the rebirth. Maybe if it is there in May. If not, I won't lose any sleep over it.

100% real... and no, I don't play Stairway - as i don't know how. But a friend of mine did.

I will post a pic of it later today.

And to prove that it is mine, and I didn't Google the pic, anyone have a request to see in the pic (obviously I can hold it) but I will still take requests... (that don't harm my guitar).

My son does.

He played "Knockin on Heaven's Door" at his guitar recital in the fall.

He has 2 different electrics, and 2 acoustics. We got him a cool wall mount for his room for Christmas - well, actually I ordered it, but it was from my mom who paid for it. I'm thankful that we have a Guitar Center not too far away. He loves going there, and practically drools over the stuff they have for sale. For his birthday we're getting him a pretty fancy pedal & board that he's been wanting for a while.
