I simply must go to Disneyland some day! Your photos look so lovely, kind of retro but very cool. That honey bee cupcake is simply adorable!

I have a blog. I've posted a little. If people look I might be prompted to do more...

Hi! My name is Fay. I've finally got through all the pages lol....Love your view! Helping a lot! I'm currently have two trips I'm planning. One beginning of dec with whole family (dh, 2kids ds age 5 , dd age 2, and mother in law. The other will be sometime in the summer. A "romantic" trip with my husband and I only lol.

We are planning on staying akl cl and I was hoping you knew a answer to a question I had. I don't want to call disney again lol but will if I need to. Okay, for the sunrise safari do you know if you can book it for the day you check out? Or must it be before then. It's okay if you don't know I just was hoping since you have done it before you may know. I'm new to staying at akl all together lol I am going to be lost this trip. Tia

What an adorable update and a super fun Dismeet!

I might get the award for the most random Dismeets - but you, I think, would get the award for the most Dismeets in general. LOL And it looks like you had a really fun one!

Congrats on another year of APs... Some day - I hope to have one myself...

Those lobster nachos look ahhhh-mazing! And the lemon cupcake looks pretty good too!

Great update!

It isn't hard to resist planning another trip when you have an AP. After all, you have to get your money's worth, right? Disney does this on purpose with their tiered ticket prices. It is either an evil plot to get your money or brilliant marketing strategy, depending on how you view it.

And a little something to share.... Lobster nachos
Those look delicious. I think I could eat anything if they put it on nachos.

Looks like such a fun Dismeet! You are starting to make me think you *may* be the official guide to DL . Also, I love the Haunted Mansion! I really hope I get the chance to see it in its Halloween Glorious-ness one day!!!

Yay a Dismeet! I love those. I remember the first time I had a Dismeet, years ago. I was at my parents house, talking about upcoming vacation plans, and mentioned I was having dinner with some of my DIS friends. My dad in particular was pretty amazed that I was meeting up with people that I "met on the internet." But I have to say, some of my best friends are my DIS peeps!

That cupcake looks DIVINE. Yummo.

I love your Disneyland pics! I must plan a trip out that way. I have been thinking and scheming about a trip next Spring; I have a brother in the Army who's stationed in Hawaii, so I want to go out and see him. I am now thinking that perhaps I will fly to LA, make a stop for a few days at Disneyland, and then go onto Hawaii.

Seeing your pictures of DLR makes me miss it. Wish DHS continued to have some form of Pixar parade. And I don't think I previously noticed how Jack Jack has a torch on this head! That's pretty cool.

Great update!!

Ugh, NO. My parents were in The Chapeau and I went out the side door that spits you out by Tony's and I was doing this strange thing where I was craning my neck trying to look in the windows and see if he was in there. Which lead to my fiance asking me what I was looking for (I was looking at the food honey!) and my mother saying, "Can you see him? Is he in there? I think he normally works dinner. Is Becky in there?" And I said, "No, no, and why would I want to see his wife?!"

Meanwhile my father is playing with Mary Poppins' penguins who were supposed to go backstage but kept popping their heads back out.

It was the strangest 5 minutes ever.

I would like that, thank you.

Glad to know Mark was a hugger, now I don't feel so creepy!

You could never be creepy, my dear.

Trying to get an update up soon... I have gotten side-tracked with everyone's TRs and PTR including a special someone who just started theirs this weekend.
Hey, Mary was pressuring me to get it started.

I definitely know that Cynthia did NOT fly up to Chicago to meet me but for business. You forgot to mention when Captain_Oblivious and FreezinRafiki were both in Chicago with their families a couple of summers ago and we met for lunch while the ladies and daughters went to American Girl. Or when FauntleroyFAN07 came to Chicago with his family and I met them at Milennium Park. Seriously, I think you are ahead of me with the DIS meets. But you are right...there is a load of them for December.

I LOVE your photos from your DISmeet with Lori (vettegirl). I met Lori (NOT in person) on teh DIS on the CSR thread. A lovely gal. It looks like the three of you had a blast.

YAY, another Disneyland DISMEET! You are slowly but surely meeting every Diser there is. I'm also starting to think most (if not all) are going to Disneyland JUST to meet you.

Looks like a nice relaxing, fun day in D-Land. I've heard they decorate even more than Magic Kingdom for Halloween, so it must be so very cool.

The Nightmare overlay on Haunted Mansion is something I really need to see one day. It looks so fabulous.

Brenda, you are amazing! Congratulations on having a top thread! You definitely deserve it. Thank you for the shout out as well, Oprah. You are so kind!

Yay Animal Kingdom! You are so right. What place doesn't charge extra for a wild time? You gotta take advantage of it when you can.

As always, you guys are super adorable. I love the character shots. How I love their jungle trek outfits, they're so cute! I'm glad you guys had a good time at the tusker house.

Dis meet!! I love your shots of the parade. Looks like you ladies had a great time.
