That breakfast looked really fun!! We've decided we are only doing one character meal on our trip...I just need to figure out which one to do! Ha!

Glad to hear you have successfully moved, Brook!

Dinner at the Cheesecake Factory looks fab, but really those World of Color pictures were amazing!!! I bet the soundtrack is wonderful, too! One day I will see it!!!

Those character pictures at breakfast are precious!!! So many cute ones!!!

I was a few updates behind. Glad you got to meet your friend for dinner! Those tacos from the Cheesecake Factory looked yummy, we have one not far from us, but we never eat there.

WoC just looks spectacular, I can't wait to get back out to DLR and see it for myself, looks like it's going to be a coupe of years though

Your character breakfast looked like fun! I love Mickey & Minnie in their lifeguard attire, so cute! And you got some really wonderful pictures of Henry with the characters

We ate at Goofy's Kitchen when we were there and loved it! We also checked in very early because we just couldn't sleep in with the time change....

Wow what a great character breakfast! I saw many empty tables in your pictures. That's certainly not a sight you'd see often at Walt Disney World.

I think my favorite picture of all is the one of Henry with Stitch and the static in Henry's hair. Adorable!

What a great breakfast and morning. The breakfast pizza looks delicious. I also love the cherry sour balls. They are always my go-to for our extra snack credits.

So glad you are posting updates again. I've missed them.

Love, love, love the Color of Wonder show. That is what it's called right? Wonderful. I would love for them to do something like that at Disney World.

So cool how you can just walk to the other areas, like the cheesecake factory. But did that take away any of the Disney feeling in your opinion. I mean when we are at Disney World, I love the whole feeling like we are in our own little world. Of course it doesn't feel as magical now as it did a first two trips when we flew and never went off site. But still I just wondered if you thought it took away from any of the magic.

This goofy statue, looks just like the one at Pop Century.

Hi there Brook

Just wanted to pop in to tell you how much I have been enjoying your report. Disneyland is my all time favourite place in the world ( and coming from Australia it's a long way away!!! ) and I just love to read trip reports from first time visitors! I will be back again in October for Halloween and am very excited!
I must tell you that we too did Mickey's Surfs Up breakfast on our last trip, as well as all the other breakfasts, and it was our favourite as far as character interaction goes! Sounds like Stitch is always good fun as he tried to eat my daughters hat when we were there!
I am so looking forward to your next update!

By the way, you have my dream job!!!

Take care

Love this trip-and I love all Disney parks, but Disneyland is my single favorite park. Can't wait for our trip-only 9 days!!!!!

Surfs Up actually seems to get consistently great reviews on this site, and I'm glad you loved it. I am paralyzed with indecision about which character meal to choose this time. Argh!

And I am very interested in the travel agent idea! Tell us more.

If we go back during busy months we'll do the dinner probably just to make it easier. What hotel are you staying at?
We are staying at the Candy Cane Inn. Is there a difference in the fast pass area if you do the WCT dinner package vs. Carthay? I'm not sure the Carthay menu will work for some of my family.

Oh I am a bit worried regarding regular opening time for off site hotel guests now that I've heard the new benefit for on site guests and early entry at both DL and DCA. Hopefully we can get to RSR in Carsland on at least one of the days!

What a grrrrreat breakfast!!!!

It seems weird to me that the characters don't have handlers in DL... though it seems more natural. I seems that Cali (DL) is just way more laid back than Orlando. Must be an East Coast thang.

Hooray! Got the new laptop! And this new laptop actually works!!! ( Long frustrating story; happy ending; 'nuf said.)

Hoping the new apartment/neighborhood/commute are becoming a more and comfortable fit. Wish I could help paint or something. I'm sure you are putting some fun touches in Henry's new room by now. And didn't you mention the kitchen is bigger? Let's see some pics when you have a minute! And I'm looking forward to your LA "field trip."

All caught up!!

Wow World of Color looks amazing!!! I hope they add something like that at WDW.

I would love to try the Cheesecake Factory. I love me some cheesecake!!

I also love those cherry sour balls. I am craving some now!!

So nice that you got to meet up with your friend & the pixie dust at World of Color. Glad you got to sit up close so Joe could see it.
