After getting home from the hospital, my box came with the "Always Room for One More" statue. To me it was sign that everything would be alright...and it was. My daughter is now 23 and perfect.
Love that!!

I've always loved the Precious Moments stuff....just never collected them.....until now......

After a short stop at the hotel, we headed back into DCA thru the GCH entrance. First Stop~~Condor Flats.













We stopped into the shop across from Soarin' to look for AP pins. They had a couple I was interested in but they were out....they told me I could check at Elias & Co. When we came out "Minnie's Fly Girls" were making their way to the stage.











We watched for a little while and then headed toward Buena Vista Street. Here's a sign that will make coffee fans happy (since I'm not a coffee drinker, I could care less........ )



Candy Mountain in the Trolley Treats Window.





We headed to Elias & Co. to see if they had the 2 pins I was looking for but also to find Jessica/Belle Ella who was supposed to be working today. I did get the 2 pins but we hunted both sides of BVS looking for Jessica but she wasn't there. Come to find out later, that she was home sick & had been most of that week. At least I'll get to see her on the February trip.









Speaking of my February Trip:
Shameful plug~~Nick, Marie, The Diva's & Me!!! So not to confuse my trip report with my upcoming trip pre-report.....I decided to start a new thread. So if you'd like to follow along~~~join me over there too!!!!

We headed back to CarsLand to get a GAC FP for Radiator Spring Racers. We really wanted to try and ride it at night. Some random pics while I got our FP.









We got our pass to return at 4:45 and we headed back towards the Little Mermaid ride so we could watch the Phineas & Ferb show.



Did you ever notice that this is a buoy??



We got our place on the "taped" line and waited.....our wait was short because we were entertained by the Trash Can Trio. They were fabulous!!!!



















The twins loved it!!

Phineas & Ferb is a fun show with catchy tunes (especially if you watch the show regularly).











PhineDroids & Ferbots!!







........WORD!..........



Addy got to go up and join in on the dancing!





The Camp Fire Girl that was leading Addy's group was REALLY IN TO HER ROLE!!! lol She was a fabulous dancer and her face was so animated. I couldn't take my eyes off of her.....she stole the show! Unfortunately, it was almost impossible to get a picture of her, as she was always on the move.







They had the kids all come together so parents could get pictures.





In honor of Christmas.....time for antlers!

Yay for Phineas and Ferb! It's a family favorite and DS7 is obsessed with it. I am looking forward to seeing the show and it's nice to know they have pre-show entertainment too.

I was kind of hoping the show would be a surprise for the kids, but I got the Disneyland Explorer app on my iPad and the kids have been all over it lately!

Check the daily schedule for show times. I don't know if they always have the entertainment prior to their show or we got lucky??!! Super fun show to watch and tap your foot too. We ALL love Phineas & Ferb!!

Glad you got the pins you were looking for

Mater looked so cute with his Santa hat on


Phineas and Ferb show looks like a lot of fun. Looks like Addy was having a great time

Great update. Great pics again! i especially like the ones in the Elias & Co. Thats one we have never done our trips is explore all the shops. I like the interior aesthetics. Am I just being a scrooge or is it weird seeing all those starbucks stores in DLR? Oh well, I guess I'll finally drink coffee there again.

I should have gotten pics of the pins....one I gave away but if I remember....I'll get a pic of mine.

I loved Mater with the hat on.....cute!!

Addy loved getting picked to go out & dance. She tried really hard to imitate the dancing they were doing. Fun show!

Disney doesn't skimp on the details.....even in the stores. I'm always amazed at all the little touches in every corner!!

A lot of people are unsure about their feelings of Starbucks being introduced into the parks....ike I said, I'm not a coffee drinker.....so I don't really have an opinion on it.

Whew! I finally got a chance to finish your tr Laurie! It took me DAYS because I work full time so I would put a shortcut on my desktop & pick up where I left off in the evenings or weekends. I even read it a couple of times during my short lunches (I get 1/2 hr, but we get off at 430, so I don't mind)

I enjoyed reading and reliving the memories, especially since I had just been there the week before you. I didn't take 1/2 as many of the pics though, you and Mike have such a good eye for details and I love the close ups! There is so much to take in when you're there, most times we miss those things!

Your kids are so adorable, I loved the dresses the girls wore to Goofy's, how nice that you got to go to more than one character meal with them! I am going to leave it up to Ian & Chloe (my son and his girlfriend) when we go in June, but I'm hoping they choose Minnie & Friends breakfast @ the Plaza Inn, because Ian has been to Goofy's, although either one would be good!

I'm so excited for you and Mike's 30th anniversary trip to WDW!! Can't wait to see the pics from that!! I look forward to Theron and I doing the same thing someday, but we are just celebrating our 22nd this year, on April 12th. Our 25th is in 3 years, so maybe that is what we'll do then! I would love to go during the Flower & Garden Festival since we've never been. We have been during the Food & Wine Festival, which is so much fun!

As I'm laying here listening to the winter wind outside, I'm dreaming of June when we are heading down to the Happiest Place on Earth!

Thank you for allowing us to live vicariously through you with your wonderful TR. I sure enjoyed every minute of it! I just booked one of my sisters, her husband, her oldest daughter and their granddaughter in a room for 5 nights, premium concierge view no less, at the DL hotel! I sure wish I was going! They are going next month. We have 17 weeks and 4 days! (vacation app)

Have a MAGICAL weekend!
Kelly

We love the character meals....I would have done all 5 if I could have talked the family into doing the Ariel's Princess one for a dinner. Love the dinner's at that restaurant!!

June will get here before you know it!!! I mean January is already over!! Not sure where it went.......

I'm heading out in about 3 1/2 wks so mine will be here FAST!!!! Looking forward to spending time with Nick & Marie!
