Don't you wish DISers had air bubbles floating over their heads with their handles, so we all could say hi to each other? I guess that's what the DIS t-shirts are for, eh.

Went yesterday from 2-10. Great day. Walked right onto Indiana Jones, California Screaming, and Soarin Over California. Even a 20 minute wait for Toy Story Mania

We've been having a great time! Super low crowds & just about walking onto every ride. Bit more crowded Sat afternoon once the sun came out, so we headed back to the hotel for a swim & some movie time. Nice to relax on vacation too.

Just back from my Jan. 24-27 trip. We were only in the parks on the 25th and 26th. We were nervous about the forecast, but only experienced sprinkles now and again, and it was pretty warm regardless.

I have to say my favorite part of the trip was walking about to Toy Story on Friday morning around 10 or 10:30 and seeing a 5 minute wait. Our eyes bugged out. We asked the cast member, is that sign missing a zero after the five? And she laughed with us, and said it had been super light all morning, and many folks were riding it over and over again. We proceeded to do the same, and ended up with 3 games before I got bored and dragged DH away. We've been wanting to do that since it first came out, but have never had less than a 30 minute wait.

I know a lot of folks have had a lot of concerns about the NAMM show, and even though this is the 4th year in a row I've gone during this particular weekend, I was still amazed at how light the crowds were. I think it's partially because of the rain, but mostly because of them moving the NAMM show to the weekend after MLK Jr. Day, instead of during. Next year is the same, and we can put up with maybe less than ideal weather and a few ride closures to enjoy the beauty of the parks with short wait times and no crowds.

We're here!!! It took us 7 hours and a couple stops to make it down from Northern California. We got checked into the Hojo with no issues. They even got us a kid suite for the last two nights of our trip! The weather was chilly and cloudy but no rain yesterday afternoon. We went to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner and had great service and ambiance as always. We're getting ready to head to the Plaza Inn for breakfast with Minnie. I'll post some reviews of wait times, food, etc later.

We have reached the sad part of our trip, the going home part. . Wonderful time Jan 23-28 & the cold. & rain kept the crowds low w/o interrupting our fun.
We walked on every ride,the longest we waited was 15 minutes for Peter Pan. Can't get much better!
The NAMM conference was pretty much a non issue, aside from the partiers drunk in DTD on Thursday & Friday night. They were amusing to watch get quickly escorted out by Disney Security.
Disneyland Hotel Concierge level was delightful as always. They were kind, helpful and assisted us with reservations & tours. Plus the food & beverages including Expresso drinks, are always wonderful.

Truly a great trip. Can't wait for our next one!

Dropped the luggage off and went straight to CA at 4 pm. It felt soooooo slow. Soarin said 15 wait, but walked straight to the holding area. Mater and Luigi both said 5 min, but we walked right on both of them. We walked on all the bugs land rides with no waiting. We rode Little Mermaid 4 times without exiting, they even asked if we wanted to ride a 5th time. RSR was a 40 min wait. We rode jumpin jellyfish and the swings with no wait. It was awesome!
