We realize that Alice is here tonight & I was excited about that since Michayla had her Alice dress on!!











The kids had been going in & out thru the exit door by our table....so we knew that we probably should finish up our dinner and go. We headed out and stood on the bridge between the pools and Mike got some pictures.















I think I'm gonna make this my profile pic!



The kids before saying goodbye.











We said our goodbyes and then we hear Zoe yelling. I guess they had seen a opposum right after leaving us.......GROSS!!! We headed to our hotel, got the kids ready for bed & Mike and I checked out our photos from the day.

This ends Park Day #4!!

Love love love your pictures at Goofy's Kitchen. How nice that Alice was there. I love Princess Aurora.

My DS is getting married next September and him and his fiance are going to WDW for their honeymoon. While there last month with DH I had Princess Aurora make a video congratulating them on their wedding and how she is looking forward to seeing them, how she loves happily ever afters. It was amazing. I found a Princess Aurora small plastic bag at the dollar store. I bought a small Princess Aurora figurine, put the video on a flash drive and put both in the bag, wrapped it up and gave it to them for Christmas. They loved it.

Love all the pics in the car. Looks like they were really driving as addy's headband looked like it had pieces of it blowing in the wind

Great character interaction. Minnie looked like she was awesome with the kids

I love the first pic of Abby with chip....such a cute expression on her face

That was so nice of them to get the kids gifts

The kids love playing with that car. In 2005 it was gold for the 50th Anniversary!!

Minnie spent a lot of time at our table, interacting with everyone. She was so sweet Michayla. She couldn't come up in our area without stopping by to see her.

Addy was being silly trying to steal their nuts.......

It was very nice of them to give the kids Christmas gifts!!

December 14, Friday~Day 5 in the parks & our last day in the parks.

We didn't set any alarms (in fact we didn't do that very often this trip), but Mike woke early and decided to do the Candy Cane dash to see if he could get me one. So sweet of him!! So he headed out and got to Disneyland prior to opening. As soon as he was through the gates he high-stepped it down to the Candy Palace to get in line for a bracelet. They only make these on select days & have a very limited amount of them available. Mike was impressed that the CM's watching the line are not allowing people to "hold" spots in line for family/friends. If they try to come and join the person in line, they are asked to go to the end of the line. LOVE IT!!! Mike came back and this was the paper he was given about the candy canes and his hot pink bracelet he got to wear for the day!!







Every one was pretty much upright and getting ready to go. We headed over to the DLH to have breakfast at Tangaroa Terrace.

This is what Shy got (and shared).





I believe this is the kids french toast plate.



This is the traditional breakfast.



This is the breakfast burrito.



This is the caramel banana french toast.



Shy was pretty happy this morning, but Michayla was a bit tired.





They have a case of pastries, as well as a case with yogurt, the fruit plates, and drinks.



You order the hot foods at a self serve podium. Very easy to use. Once you've made your food order, you will receive a printed ticket. Then you pick up stuff from the cold cases, you head to the cashier to pay.

Here's some pictures from inside the restaurant. (they offer inside & outside seating)





The menu board.



Nice little restaurant and it was very quiet (both times I've gone). The food is prepared to order and brought out to your table. Prices are decent......they serve all 3 meals.

Derek & I had headed off to the gift shop in the DLH....... so as we were shopping, the rest of the group looked around the grounds of the DLH.

More pictures from around the DLH.



















Derek & I caught back up to our group & we returned to the hotel.



So what did Derek & I go shopping for???? A Dooney & Bourke Bag!!! I've been wanting one but couldn't justify spending that kind of money......until Derek had the 40% CM holiday discount that is!!





If you don't like to carry a big purse or don't have a lot of stuff in your purse....then this is a nice size to use. I don't tend to carry much at all, so a perfect fit.......some ladies carry a TON of stuff and would need to look at the even bigger & more expensive purses. This one is $195 regular price!

While I was oohing & aahing over my new baby.....Mike gathered all the gift cards we had used up & got a picture of them.



So a word of advice when purchasing Disneyland tickets online........make sure you order the right thing AND know you're going to need it! I got some bad information from Guest Services saying that Derek would need a ticket on Friday-Saturday-Sundays during December. (the jury is still out on this if this was accurate or not.......more on that later) So when I was ordering the boys 2 day tickets (Derek signed them in 3 times and didn't want to find out he was out of guest sign ins), I also ordering Derek a one day ticket. Well come to find out~~I had ordered a Child ticket for Derek. So I went up to Concierge to see if they could help me return it, as Ally was saying that Derek DIDN'T need a ticket. They weren't able to do it, so I would need to go to one of the ticket booths to do it.

We headed towards Disneyland and Derek & I stopped at the ticket booth. She was under the understanding that CM's WOULD need a ticket, but while we were standing there, Ally had texted Derek that she was already in the park & she didn't need one. So we decided we would just try to see what happened before getting another ticket. As for the child ticket I had, since I bought it online.....I would need to email somebody about getting a refund. Heavy sigh.....this was reminding me of the wax museum issue and I wasn't happy I had yet another $100 being held up because I bought tickets on their "official" websites but couldn't be refunded the money at their business. So we headed to the gates & Derek was able to get in but for some reason, he couldn't get a paper ticket to use for FP's. I think this was the confusion.....CM's from parks other than the California parks would need to purchase a block out ticket of some sorts but even the people at the gate didn't know for sure. Anywhos........we were all inside & Derek needing a FP wouldn't be an issue. So we headed up Main Street, stopping to show the kids the candy canes being made & explaining that we were one of the lucky ones that would be getting one today.













We would be back to pick ours up later!!

I liked the Santa making the popcorn!!

Our first ride today was Peter Pan. Michayla was happy!!









The line for the wheelchair entrance was busy, so I must of held on to wiggly Michayla for a good 30 minutes. There just wasn't room to keep her in the stroller & since she won't wear shoes (at least willingly).....I ended up holding her. Our group was split into 3 and they'd take one group and when they returned, they'd get the next group. It's worth the wait!!! There's just something magical & special about this ride!!







After flying over London & Neverland, I had Mike get a picture of the "Kodak Picture Spot" signs. These will be disappearing since Kodak went under.



We let Shyann try her hand at pulling out the Sword in the Stone.





Next ride was Snow White's Scary Adventures!





Followed by Pinocchio's Daring Journey.





Before getting on Mr Toad's Wild Ride.....the kids got in the one for pictures.









Next ride was on Alice......for some reason I don't have one picture....weird!

Ty, Derek, Ally, Anthony & Addy headed off to ride the Matterhorn. Ok, here comes my big gripe!! When DL re-did the Matterhorn, they put in new ride vehicles. They are single seats, no lap sitting & doubles. Well you have now eliminated this ride to people that need someone to hold them (for safety issues or lack of muscle control). Nor can you sit in the seat behind them & reach them to give them the extra help. I'm not sure you can even reach them. I was furious to find out that we couldn't take the twins on because of this. I'm surprised someone hasn't used the ADA card on this. From what I understand....they ruined this ride but we still would like the option of riding it or not. Ok, stepping off soapbox!

Mike & I took the twins over where they are holding the Princess meet-n-greet in the Small World area (actually more across from the Storybookland Canal Boats). The princesses were leaving & we realized it was because today there was a 1pm parade. So we found ourselves a spot to sit and save spots for the kids when they got off the Matterhorn. While we were waiting, Mike got this picture of the monorail.



We got a text from the kids asking where we were. Ty & the kids came to join us but Derek & Ally took off for a while.

It was pretty good food there. I'm hoping to try it for a lunch or dinner soon!!

I will go into more on the ticket when I hit the next day......so I'll make you wait!!

It's amazing how long people will wait in line for Peter Pan......DL doesn't offer a FP on this.

Mr Toad's Wild Ride is a silly thing (and loud) but a part of my Fantasyland experience.

Mike was soooooooooo nice getting up early and heading out to the park to do the candy cane dash!!! It was worth it.....delicious!!

Thank You!!! I love my purse & I've never said that about a purse before.....lol

Marie & Nick have been together for quite a while. They met when we all lived in Medford. We're thrilled they're finally making it official!!

Shy does love those cars (that aren't moving). When she rode with Mike on Autopia she didn't want to drive.

Wow. I've been following your trip for the past couple of weeks (at work ) and have been completely enthralled. I found this board about a month ago while planning my children's first trip. I love reading about your family and experiencing your Disney adventures. It sounds like you must have a great time together!! Thank you so much for all of the tips and entertainment. I can't wait to hear how it all ends!
