Next set is from CarsLand. This one cracked me up.....we got photo bombed!!!



Now that the kid had moved on.....lol







This was from our ride on Radiator Springs Racers.



We didn't get the picture of Ty, Derek & Ally because I guess she had her feet up on the dash & since that is a no no, they won't even post the picture.

The kids with Aviator Minnie in Condor Flatts.









The beautiful fountain on Buena Vista Street. (of course our family is big enough, we covered most of it up.....lol)





I'm showing you this one because I'm not sure I've ever gotten a picture that cut off parts of our group.....lol



The Walt & Mickey statue on Buena Vista Street.









There's more, more, more to come.....but photobucket started acting up....so done for now!!

Great pics again. How much is the Photopass+ ? It seems like a good deal with the ride pics included. And how does that work? Do you hand them your photopass after the ride? Looking forward to catching up on you other TR. Hope you read mine later this year to read how you influenced my trip. Thanks for sharing yours.

$69.95 for the Photopass+. They give you the card on a lanyard that you show just like you would the regular card. After the ride, you give the CM your card & photo # and they add it to your account. If you do a character meal, when they come to your table with the picture package, show them your card & they will give you the package for free. Those packages run $30 each.....so if you do 2 meals and 1 on-ride photo.....you pretty much had paid for it. Then on top of those perks, you also get all your photopass pictures on a CD and a Gallery CD with professional park pictures.

Thanks for the tip. I am leaning towards 2 character meals, Ariels Grotto lunch for my DD6 and Surfs Up! for the boys DS3 and DS1. Would you say thats a good choice or should I go for Goofy's Kitchen or Storytellers instead of Surfs Up? Well, you have fun planning your upcoming trip, I'm sure the anticipation is killing you.

Depends on who you want to see at the meals. Surf's Up will have Mickey (the only meal he's at), Stitch and then a mix of Minnie, Daisy, Max, Pluto, Goofy. You are never guaranteed characters.....but Mickey & Stitch are pretty regular.
It's a smaller buffet that offers some different choices, lots of character interaction because it's a smaller venue. They have the kids get up and dance, surf, hula hoop, etc.

Goofy's Kitchen is a HUGE buffet with lots of choices. It's a louder meal with game playing down by the buffet and dancing. Characters that seem pretty regular is Goofy, Pluto and then could have Minnie, Max, Chip, Dale, a Princess, Alice, Baloo, Brer Fox, etc. I've seen as little as 4 characters and up to 9.

Storyteller's is a very laid back meal. Could even be called boring....... I enjoy it for the "rare" characters and good food. But it's never on the top of the list for going.

So it depends on what you're looking for. I like all of them, but for different reasons.

You know......Minnie's would be a good option too for little ones. Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Minnie, and more of the classic characters are always a hit with littles. There's usually quite a few characters on hand here as well. The food is meh.......

Now I just made your decision harder.......

Then Tyler joined us.

Jake from Jake & the Neverland Pirates on Disney Jr. Since this was a new character for us......we stopped for the picture.









At the end of the street in the Hollywood Backlot area.







The photographer had us point to the biggest troublemaker in our group.....lol



It's Stitch!!





The entrance into CarsLand and the "Snow"mobile.....lol Wasn't happy with how dark these turned out. The ones off Mike's camera was much better.





This was in the Duffy photo spot.....just no Duffy.

This set is from in front of the Christmas tree in Paradise Pier. I was disappointed that they didn't offer the Stitch bursting out of the Christmas gift this year.











The on-ride photos from California Screamin'. Tyler in the yellow.



Derek, Anthony, Ally & Addy.



The Santa at the Disneyland Hotel.









One more post to go!!

Goofy's Kitchen Dinner. I was really upset that they didn't include the pictures we had taken with Michelle & her daughter Zoe. They didn't scan my card until after our family shot & then the shot with the two of them included.....so not sure where those pics went??







Our last photopass picture was taken in front of the Buena Vista Street Christmas Tree after dark.







Tyler had a few photopass pictures done on his solo day. This is him with Mickey on Buena Vista Street.









Ty on Radiator Springs Racers.



Ty on California Screamin'.



And that friends..........is the end!!!

Thank you so much for hanging out with me & reliving our trip!!! I appreciated each & everyone of you!! Please join me on my PTR.....I'm leaving in 5 days with my oldest son, Nick and his fiance Marie.

Great Photopass pictures! Nice to see how they handle bigger groups. I hope there are as many photographers out when we go next month!

Thanks!! Are you going in the "spring break" time frame....if so, you'll see photographers all over the place. I'm going next week and hope we find them easily since I purchased the Photopass+ again. I like getting my monies worth out of them!
