Very true. I'll think about it. Do you guys take much time out for rides? Not that I need to do many. But I need at least one ride on Space Mountain, Pirates, and ToT!

Dinner on Wednesday is a no go for me as my flight gets in at 9pm.

Also need to figure out hotel still. Just so I know how much money to have saved. I have that room at the HoJo booked still but will need one or two roomies to afford it! Would so love to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, but would definitely need a roomie or two there!

The only question about the princess photo is IF we can do one. With the closing of PFF and the princesses moving to the new area to the left of the castle, who knows if the new area will be open yet or if it will have a photo op suitable for a large group like PFF.

I usually bring a spare or two for roomies who conveniently "forget".

Perhaps, Lisa, you and I will have to hog tie (and do not think I do not know how, agriculture major before I went to Vet school, thank you very much) Capri and super glue a tiara to her resisting head.

Since I am driving and do not have to deal with airplane security issues, I can bring the rope.


Muhahahahahahahahahahahaha.

I'd like to do both photos for sure! They sound fun! Doesn't matter to me where they are. Castle one would be awesome if its possible.

I'd love to do the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour on Thursday!! I'm down for going off site on Saturday
OKay, I'm going to start a sign up list for the tour now. That way we know for sure what numbers we are looking at. I haven't looked into it directly, but was told the tour starts at 9:30 and accommodates 15. I'll take sign-ups and we can go from there.

I agree, Tortilla Joes was disappointing. My tamale wasn't edible last time, too under cooked! The guacamole was good though.

I missed the post with the price of the Tour, is it really expensive?
Someone else posted it was $87! When I told the tour before it was only in the $50 range. So it's my understanding they added Walt's apartment then jacked the price up $30.

HOB would be fun. Their food is good. We went there the very first year.

Friday: lunch at Flo's sounds awesome. Dinner at Pacific Wharf or Ariel's? Later in the evening I will be all over a hot chocolate from Ghiradelli, those are amazing and a new fireworks tradition for my kids and I.

Saturday: breakfast: River Belle Terrace lunch: Carnation Cafe dinner: BTRBBQ and sign me up for the Fantasmic dessert party because I've never done it. Awesome!



These suggestions are just based on where I love to eat and you could all tell me to piss off and pick different places. I just figured I'd put in my two cents.
Don't be silly. Always good to have suggestions. Can't promise everyone we'll utilize all suggestions, obviously, but still, always good.

Not yet, but it will get worked in there. It usually does.

There, see. Problem solved just like that.

I've always hit rides on these trips, often with Fast Pass, many times with other Divas too. We've done a group ride on Pirates before. Nothing the group does is "mandatory". You look at what's on the schedule and pick and choose what you want to do and go from there. We often have reservations at 2 or 3 places for each meal period. The only things that tend to be close to 100% attendance are the Meet & Greet and the main group photo (Castle the last couple years). The Princess photo is usually highly attended as well.

Well what about doing a Castle photo instead of the princess one (its still kind of princess-y with it being sleeping beauty's and all) and doing the other photo in DCA, if the princess one is not possible.

Well, that's true. But, I think we should plan for one, until we hear otherwise.
I mean, a lot of this is tentative planning for now. We don't know park hours, we don't know if or when there will be Fantasmic, we don't know of any ride closures, etc.
We can make all the plans, but always be open to change and ready with a plan B as it gets closer just in case.

The princesses are so popular though that I can't imagine they won't have some sort of photo op going on at that time. (fingers crossed!!)

I do rides rides rides rides, and animation academy and rides and rides and rides. Some people do lots of meals and all, I am more of a grab a chimichanga and go kind of person.

We all end up shooting off in splinter groups of people,often with like touring interests. It is impossible to tour the parks in a group of 30, 40, 75. So, I am sure rides, shopping, people watching, whatever makes you happy will fit in.

Exactly. And that's important for any new ladies joining in to keep in mind. We do not tour as a whole group. Nope, no way. LOL Although, that would be quite a sight.

No, the group will meet at key points and times, such as the hunt, the group photo, certain meals, one or two group rides, the Meet and Greet, etc.
But, during the in between times, everyone tends to break off into smaller groups based on similar wants/needs/interests.

It's DISNEYLAND. You can wear your tiara EVERYWHERE, 24/7, right?. RIGHT! So you just rest your pretty little tiara adorned head! LOL!

That's a good plan B, Andrea. I like that idea. So group photo could be in DCA just before the hunt, either by the fountain or the wheel of death. Then on Saturday we plan for the princess photo, but if for some reason that doesn't work out, we can do it in front of the castle.
