I’ve been following along. Thought I’d comment

Oh my goodness, you leave today on the Magic! Hope you have a wonderful time!

The Disneyland Hotel looks amazing. Very modern.

I love the idea of the outdoor fireplace. Very cool!

I love the monorail slides. They are the coolest thing ever.

The rooms look amazing. I love the “fireworks”.

Ohmygod I love the Mickey hand lamp in the room. It’s adorable.

Blue Sky Cellar seems really cool! I agree, I wish they had something like this at WDW for Fantasyland.

Buena Vista Street and Cars Land both look INCREDIBLE.

Thanks for sharing so much about the hotels. They are amazing for sure. Sadly... a bit on the pricey side. I am not sure if dh saw some of your pictures over my shoulder or what, but he recently suggested we go for a long weekend to DLR. So I did look into the Disney hotels, but even with a military discount I just couldn't justify it. Hopefully, the place we are staying which was super cheap will be "good enough". I am not looking at places to dine... I JUST looked at ESPN menus. Looks like it might be an option.. DL has so much fewer options.. and those they do have a more than I think WDW are. Course... maybe I am just use to the dp.

Have a super fun time on your cruise!!!

Thanks for the pre-cruise update! It was so fun to see the pics from the Disneyland Hotel - we loved our stay there so much. And the info about Cars Land was great - loved the pictures.

Have an amazing cruise!!!!!

great photos of the Disneyland resorts! I love that preview room - you are right they should have that at WDW! Too funny that you heard a familiar laugh below - hey they had a chance to try that pool that is way more important than a nap!

Hiya Brook! I'm finally here and all caught up!

So many things to comment on, let's see how much I can remember....

Totally agree with you on DLs version of Space and Pirates being better than WDWs, Pirates especially is AWESOME. I have to admit that after riding it, the one at WDW has lost some of it's appeal.

We also had a similar experience with the Indy FP, it was totally worthless, if I remember right we waited about 25 minutes

Your pictures of White Water Snacks in the Grand Californian reminded me of the yummy chicken nachos I had there, I could so go for some of those right now!

I'm looking forward to the Little Mermaid ride opening in WDW, it's probably my favorite Disney movie and the attraction wasn't yet open at DCA when we were there.

I gotta agree with you on the Toy Story queue, it is very lacking! I sure don't remember the scenes from Andy's House in the exit though, of course, it's been awhile....

Yikes! Can't believe you got on that Ferris Wheel! At least you were smart enough not to get in the sliding cars of death

Wasn't the Aladdin show great? Probably the best Disney stage production I've seen at any of the parks or cruises. The rumor about it being replaced by Toy Story was going on when we went and that was 4 years ago, hopefully that is one rumor that won't hold true

LOVE the pictures from the Disneyland Hotel! That headboard was amazing!

Finally, cruise question - how did you like the Hilton in Nassau? Our cruise is stopping there and we are still trying to decide exactly what we want to do, leaning towards getting day passes for the Sheraton/Wyndham though. It is only $25 per person and you can use both properties, the beach looks really nice too.
