Just stopping by... I had to go back to May for find where I left off.

Too much to comment on but I LOVE the pictures of the Magic setting sail. Tell me you heard the horn from the dock? The first time they blasted it we were standing right in front of it and it scared the crap out of us! I have the horn on video right when we were passing the Statue of Liberty. So cool!

I hope to stay current from here on out (it's a nice thought isn't it?)

YOU"RE BACK! Oh, how I have missed your TR! Glad you are all moved, cruise was wonderful and you are getting back in the swing of things!

I love the lit trees lining the sidewalk. Looks like it would be almost magical to walk through in the evening. Also your hair looks really cute in this picture! A totally different look than when it is down:


I am glad that your friend explained Joe's eye condition to the CM's and got you up front so he could see the details of the show! I am sure that he is always just trying not to have anyone make a fuss, but like you said - the guy can't see very well! And everyone deserves to have a wonderful view when they fly clear across the country to see & do something!

I'm leaving the actual WOC post to read after work today, excited to read the rest of the details of the trip and then hopefully read all about the cruise as well (if you are TR'ing that!).

WOW! I am so excited to see WOC! Your pictures are fantastic. I have to figure out if we should get the WOC dining package (or just get the regular fastpass) and if so, which restaurant. My family will be there from 8/12-8/16 and I am figuring it will be very busy at the parks! Even though we are staying offsite I hope to visit the Disney hotels.

mega update!!!!!!!!

LOVE love love the WOC pictures. Gorgeous! I wanna go! Now! Oh, I need to fit a trip in somehow. Seems like it wouldn't be hard as it's relatively close but you know how it goes.

I like Cheesecake factory although I admit to finding the menu way too big, to the point of being overwhelming. Really great turkey burger though.

What a fun night with your friend.

Brooke the photos were awesome!!! I KNEW they would be. We loved this show. There is a very good HD video on youtube for WOC that I sometimes watch when I am feeling a little And I LOVED the pirates part, too. We had used our early entry option in the morning to get FP for WOC that evening and so glad we did. I didn't care for the menu options enough to bother with the picnic option and didn't want to spend the money for the dinner/show option, so having the early entry worked out great. Can't wait to hear more.

Yay updates! Glad to have you back! I love finding DL TRs through a WDW vets eyes

I want so badly to see World of Color but I'm purposefully avoiding it on YouTube and whatnot - I want my first time seeing it to truly be a surprise because I haven't heard a single bad thing about the show.

Thanks for posting so many pics of the offsite hotels! I have a feeling that's where DBF and I will end up whenever we make it out there (unless you talk to me on one of my 'splurge' days - then we're staying at the Grand Californian ) so it's great to see pics of them all and how close they are to everything - both Disney and non-Disney options as well.

Can't wait for more! Will you be doing a cruise TR eventually?

Wow!!!! just WOW!

I love those WOC pictures.

I can see why you took so many. I would be there right with you!

Thats wonderful you got to see your friend too. My BFF from grade school lives out there (She was home last week for a visit too) and she works in the movie industry as well. She said it was funny one time when she picked up the phone for her boss and he said "this is Arnold, can I talk to Paul?" LOL As in "the" Arnold who is now governor.! Seh worked with Kevin Bacon too, so if you ever play 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, you can use my name...No one will no the tie end....but I am in the 6 degrees!

How sweet of Joe to suggest that you and Nichol spend some more time together. Too bad you were fading quickly.
I was just snapping away during the show - it was so incredible, I couldn't stop!

It was very sweet of Joe to take Henry back on his own. I'm glad I got the extra hour or so with Nichol so we could catch up more!

I have been to Disneyland once (I think 7-8 years ago) and I remember riding on Indiana Jones and it was incredible! And I do remember the rooms you go through are huge.
Thank you!!! I honestly feel like my pictures don't quite capture it though! It's amazing-completely different and such an experience! The Pirates part left us with our mouths hanging open it was so cool!

I find it hard to believe the Dinosaur and Indiana Jones are essentially the same ride. They feel COMPLETELY different. Henry saw Dinosaur in one of his WDW books, and has requested to try it in October (yikes!), so it will be good for me to ride again after the IJ experience to see if I like it anymore. We have ridden it a few times, but have skipped it more often than not...

Good for you for making it back into DL for some more rides.


Taking notes here every chance I get. 70 days for me.
It really is a must do, at least once! The Disneyland fireworks are also very good, more on that soon! Try to get to both shows, but if you can only see one-World of Color.

70 days! Are you going solo? (I cannot remember the details around it...work trip extended?)

Ohhh I love the picture of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider. That may be one of my favorite Disney movie scenes now. But really, all the pictures of WOC look great. It seems like an amazing show. Man I need to get to Disneyland again...

Yay Indiana Jones! That is a fun ride. Do you watch Modern Family? They had a Disneyland episode (I had actually never watched the show but saw they were doing a DL episode and had to watch!) where the father and son are all excited about riding Indiana Jones but it has a 45 minute wait. Sorry for that random comment but you mentioning Indiana Jones made me think of it.
You do need to get to Disneyland again! I hope we can go back in 2014, or even somehow squeeze in a 2013 trip. (but that is dreamin'!)

I don't watch Modern Family, but I do remember hearing about the DL episode-might have to look it up on Hulu! A 45 minute wait-they were upset about it? I would totally wait that long for it!

Thankfully I haven't written that much since May, right? I had such a big break in there, I should be done with this thing!

We did hear the horn from the dock! When the Fantasy arrived here Joe could hear it's horn when he exited the train station downtown-about 4 blocks from the water...so they are LOUD! I can see why it scared you! I look forward to seeing your video and reading your TR about your cruise!

It is so GREAT!!! Nothing else like it. I hope they add something similar to WDW, it would be such a fantastic offering and could work well at AK (no fireworks!). Maybe with Avatarland we'll get something similar for a night show.

Thank you!!! And YES! I am BACK! It feels good to be mostly caught up on things. I want to share some pictures of our new place and our awesome 4th of July too - I have a few life updates!

Thank you for the compliment about my hair! I wear it back/up quite a bit in the evening because I get tired of it on my neck now that it's so long.

That is exactly it about Joe's eyes! He never wants to bother with it, and doesn't want to be looked at as "weird" or something. He just wants to be normal. I get it....but....

I will be TRing the cruise! I have no idea how I'll get this all done before our October trip though...I really want to! I need to keep at this pace!

for a Disneyland trip!!!!! The parks will likely be very busy during your dates. The dining package will get you into that "Green" area, so I'd go that route unless you want to line up early to get the best seat possible in your FP color. If we go back during busy months we'll do the dinner probably just to make it easier. What hotel are you staying at?

I hope you guys can get there soon, it's been a few years, right? The WoC is an amazing show, plus all the new areas of DCA! I can't wait to get back.

The menu IS overwhelming, I agree! I think that's why I always end up with the same (or very similar) thing - I read through it all and just give up. I really like what I get, so it's all good!

Oooh, I'm going to have to check out that HD video! I'd love to see the show again, just for a little fix. We did exactly the same with the early entry FPs (loved that perk) - I think if we went back during busier months we would do the dinner though, just for it to be easier.

I did the EXACT same thing as you-I avoided videos/pictures, etc! I'm so glad I did! The real experience is worth the wait! I am normally not like that (Joe is with most things though), and I want to know exactly what to expect, but, I made myself wait with WoC!

The offsite hotels are an EXCELLENT options and some are actually closer than Paradise Pier! Some of the hotels are pretty nice too, and have Disney themed rooms!

I will be doing a cruise TR when I finish this one - hopefully I can get both done before our October trip. (a girl can dream, right?!)

A Character Breakfast - Disneyland Style

Saturday, January 14

We woke up bright and early again - still on East Coast time! We had reservation for the Paradise Pier character breakfast ("Disney's PCH Grill") that morning. This is not one of the highest rated character meals (Goofy's Kitchen and Storytellers both get more positive reviews), but we liked the convenience of it, and just hoped for the best. Our reservation was for 9:30-thinking that would be plenty early to start our day....however, we were in the lobby asking to walk-in at 8 AM! SO unlike us!


Family pic before we left the room


Right outside the restaurant

After a 5 minute wait, they had no problem accommodating us. Can't say that will happen in the busier months, but I do know that Disneyland dining is MUCH easier to walk-up to since many locals don't dine in the restaurants regularly.

We were ushered in and posed with Mickey


There was a PhotoPass photographer here too-we didn't buy PP before our trip, but in case you do!

After our time with Mickey a dance party started! My boy LOVES to dance, so we hopped right in!






Surfin'





The music was Beach Boys and other bubble gum pop from the era - it was a GREAT way to start the morning and we were all smiling already from ear to ear!

We were ushered to our table after the Cast Member waited for us to get our groove on and we were right by the floor to ceiling windows with this view


It is on a fairly busy road, but the palm trees and natural light made up for it!

Taking a look around the restaurant


Colorful kites were on the ceiling


The buffet was in the other room



Joe and I took turns at the buffet.

A plate for Henry


Joe's plate


My plate



A little banana smoothie for Henry-these were on the buffet!

And pretty soon....





Stitch was very silly--which Henry LOVED.





More food!

The breakfast pizza rocked. Mickey pancakes!


They had quite a few healthier breakfast options - some egg white dishes, vegetables, etc. TONS of yogurt options too!

Continued from previous post

And even more food!


My favorite girl came around!





LOVE this one!!!!

The atmosphere here was very relaxed. I'm not sure if that's because the restaurant was fairly empty, or if it is just designed that way. The characters did not have handlers and would come around more than once to play. Pluto came by and Henry (and a few other kids) ended up following him all over!










I really like this one too!







Stitch put napkins on the head of the boys at a table near us. Henry thought this was HILARIOUS and had to join in on the fun. He was trying to steal the spotlight from those kids...which I wasn't too pleased about, but Stitch was an all-star and stay focused on the kids at the table he was at. Joe and I gave the attention to Henry and he ate it up (of course!)!

All in all, it was a GREAT meal! If this was one of the lower-rated ones, I cannot imagine how spectacular the others are! We all loved it, and it was the perfect way to start our day!


Our total. Not too shabby considering the massive amounts of food we ate and the awesome experience with the characters!!

Back out to the lobby, Henry had oodles of energy and enjoyed running down the big hallways.



We did have an agenda for today, but weren't in any rush and still ahead of schedule...so we went shopping!






Magnets


Goofy kid!


Picture frames




Postcards

After our shopping, we paused in the lobby so I could grab pictures of what we bought.




The cookies were for Henry's class, the rest was for US. The candy is cheaper at Disneyland than WDW! And I believe it was buy 3 get 1 free too! I HAD to. Love those Cherry Sour Balls! Plus they had multi-flavored Sour Balls, which were good, but not as good. The ice cube tray makes Mickey Heads.


T-shirt for me


Postcards


Despite our very full stomachs, those bags were quickly ripped open! YUM!!!

A few pictures of the Quick Service, the Surfside Lounge, inside Paradise Pier



















The main lobby area - the doors there are the front doors. The check-in desk is tucked away behind the column (elevator).


Looking up through the skylight





Henry had been begging to go the arcade, so he and Joe did that, while I dropped off our purchases in the room and grabbed a few things that we needed for the day.





And pretty soon, I was back down in the arcade, and it was time to head out to the Carzilla....we were heading into LA and Hollywood today!
