Glad you're getting settled into your new place and finding time to get caught up on the Dis

The World of Colour looks incredible - if we ever make it to Disneyland it'll right at the top of my list!
I'm tempted to head over to youtube later and take a look at the video someone else mentioned

I am just mesmerized by the WOC! Beautiful pictures! I just had to share with the family and they too were just awed! We are You-tubing the show in a minute.

We ate at the Cheesecake Factory in Veags and it was soooo good! I had a crabcake sandwich which will forever be in my mind as the best meal I've ever eaten, ever! I'm almost afraid to try it again, what if it's not the same!

You charcater breakfast looked way fun, Kadence thought Stitch messing Henry's hair was the best! The food looked yum!

Looks like I may want to do a little research on DL!

Brook, I ended up two updates behind...again (spent most of the day on the phone with Nursing Home and hospice for my MIL).

I just sat there and scrolled up and down looking at your beautiful pictures of the show. This in itself makes me want to try Disneyland at least once.

Your breakfast looked yummy...and love all the fun that Henry was having.

Loving all the information. The Characters in their Lifeguard outfits look great and have me thinking. :

AS for my trip... it is a work extension or really the conference is an extension of the DL trip since I put DL first. Conference is in Vegas this year.

woah I missed loads of your updates! I actually saw your aladdin updates but I missed updates before and after it weird!
Way to go Henry on the first pin trade! I love kids logic of pin trading they don't care what the pin means and trade good pins away because they like the look of the others better... good plan.
Sorry that Henry was scared of all the rides. How cute is Woody though helping him relax a little.
Cool light up hook! I know someone that would love that... although he denies having any like for disney and he's only 7
The little mermaid ride looks cool I can't wait to see the new one at WDW when it opens.
I love how they try make it feel like Andy's house and then Andy's hosue has a gift shop.. What a handy way to make money.. I think I'll set up a gift shop in my house to
The pic of Henry hugging mater is to cute!

Yes, the Disneyland hotels are expensive! Especially when there are some great options across the street. What hotel did you choose? There are LOTS of great ones, I'm sure you'll be fine! There are some really good sit-down restaurants in Downtown Disney, and all the Quick Service we ate was very good as well. Plus, just a few blocks away are may other choices-Cheesecake Factory, PF Changs, iHop and more.

We stayed at Desert Inn and Suites. It wasn't bad, but kinda reminded me of an old apartment rather than a hotel.

I see you walked by Desert Palms... we stayed there on our last trip to DLR. It was a bit more of a walk..but still doable. The time before that we stayed at Residence Inn... we walked that..but often it was too much so we used the ART (Anaheim Resort Transportation) It was so worth it especially with our (at the time) very small toddler

WOC... OMG, you took the BEST pictures. We watched it... we preordered the picnic packs (which were yummy) and got seating in the yellow section. Looking at that map, we were actually standing right where those two yellow stars are. I had a hard time taking picture though because of the water spray.

Your character breakfast looks like so much fun. I had wanted to try and do that on our last day, but for lunch... well.. they don't do lunch. It is different for dinning there though, I agree. We walked up and got breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen without any problem and were seated immediately. I know were were super tired, so I may have missed it.. but there didn't seem to be the same level of character interaction going on there that you got.

Oh..and on WOC, did they do a Brave segment while you were there? It was my favorite.. along with the part where Captain Jack mentioned not doing something again!

Glad your back and updating!! Isn't if fun to meet up with a friend you have seen in forever and have things be just like they were the last time you met up?

Love your World of Color pictures. My kids finally have started enjoying it after seeing it a few times. My husband loves this show. I like it but F! will always be my favorite.

Love the fun Henry was having at breakfast. We enjoyed that breakfast but I love Goofy's Kitchen beter just because you get more of a variety of characters to see and my husband likes Chip and Dale's better.

Can't wait to read more!!
