Yay!! Kristen I'm so excited for your trip[. I have a feeling I will see you in Disneyland. I mean, it's way smaller than WDW right? As far as tips for 4th of July, just be prepared to be around huge crowds all day. It will be hot, there will be lots of intoxicated people too. I would bring bottles of water and don't drive. It would be better to take the metro (which will be really crowded too). BUt it is totally an awesome experience. Really great fireworks! Have a blast -Amanda

Wonderful reviews!

I actually ate at the Turf Club- my friend was staying there and it worked out to meet her there for lunch! Loved the service!

Enjoy your trip to DL!

This is true! Be sure to say hello! Our hotel is actually right on the mall or whatever, so we'll be walking everywhere. I think we'll avoid being outside in the afternoons at all costs. Thanks for the tips!

Just read your dining review so far, first review I've read of yours. I tried to start one of the first ones but it said 64 pages, and thats a lot of reading! haha. This is kind of a random question but to my surprise I didn't see anyone else ask but did you get your nails done or do them yourself? And do you happen to have a picture of them? I could only see a few from pictures and they looked super cute! I enjoy getting my nails done and am always looking for fun designs to get done before disney.

Hi there Kristen! I hope you are enjoying Vegas about now. Well, specifically Monsters University! They were handing out buttons promoting the movie yesterday at the DL.

Getting caught up here...
Your soup at Plaza restaurant - oh my gosh! You're killin' me since that looks awesome. I need to try and squeeze that in.

Turf Club - I have to say although I didn't like it when we went over a year ago, I'm willing to try something twice to give it the benefit of the doubt. I see they have prime rib which is a tough find in WDW.

Yay for Splash Mountain front row which confirms what the signs say - you WILL get wet! (At least with my luck. Like the first time we met I was a soaking wet mess!)

I love Woody and Jessie! Such cute photos. (Love Sarah's bow. That looks familiar!)

Looking forward to seeing if we can say hi to each other at DL next week. BTW: You have your priorities straight making sure you get on RSR! Hint: Single Rider Line is your friend. Em and I do that and are in the same car about 75% of the time.

Enjoy the rest of your Vegas trip.

The sandwiches at Plaza look delicious! I have a ressie there on Sunday and I'm looking forward to trying it!

Never made it to Turf Club yet but the pasta dish looks really good.

And WOOHOO for Disneyland!! I've never been but I'm hoping to get out there within the next few years, so I will definitely be looking forward to your TR on that!

Yum to your Sanaa review! My husband and I absolutely adore that place although we were devastated when they took off the shrimp in green curry sauce. We're still mourning that loss, and it was one of those things that they didn't give a recipe for so there isn't even a chance of recreating it at home.

I never really looked at the Grand Floridian Cafe before, but those meals look delectable! I like having shrimp whenever possible since it's one thing I don't make at home so to me, it's such a treat. Your shrimp and grits look delicious. I just watched a Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives yesterday where Guy Fieri had shrimp and grits, and I'm so interested in having that combo!

Haha, I totally got your "no more 8:30 shows" thing! When we passed by last week, we commented on it when we saw the times board in front of Indy!

Loving your updates about your current trip!

I do them myself! These are the ones from my most recent WDW trip in May/June:

It is! I definitely enjoyed it a lot.

Hahah you weren't a mess at all! But yes, you do get quite wet!

Yes! We share it. They were so cute.

So sorry I didn't see you at DL! Definitely at WDW though! We did do SR though. Much easier.

They were! I loved it!

Sarah really enjoyed that, though it was way too much for her.

Hey there y'all! I'll be posting updates soon but first I wanted to link you all to the TR from the Frump Reunion trip! Maggie has it up and running, so if you haven't found it already, you can find it HERE! I hope you enjoy her wit and comedic brilliance as much as I do! Enjoy!

Joining in! I know I'm late, but I can't miss out on another frump TR, especially a DR. Literally, due to your food raving/reviews (this one mostly pertains to you, Kristen), Schoolbread is at the top of my list for Disney snacks I must try so now I gotta see what your opinion is of the new food options coming to the world (although this was from last year...). Glad to hear you guys enjoyed Sanaa to give it a TWO PART update! Love that place! Can't wait to read more!

P.S. Hope you had a great time on your bicoastal escapade! Excited to hear about your return trip to DLR! (:
