Oh my she was special, wasn't she?!?! I mean, I get that people have to be careful in Walt's apartment but I mean COME ON lady. It's not the National Treasury or the Crown Jewels.

We had a really young girl as our guide in Walt's apartment and a very nice gentleman guarding the toilet!
I remember the young girl being very sweet but looking mildly terrified, almost as if the possibility of a tourist going rouge was too much responsibility for her :-)
Even so, it was amazing to stand in that apartment

I'm back! Finally was able to connect to the Dis, so got to catch up again.

Your anniversary dinner looked pretty tasty, anything cooked tempura style is fine with me.

The tour was neat as was the tour leader, I remember those uniforms from watching Mickey Mouse Club back in the day. It does my heart good to see not everything has changed from those bygone days at Disney. The apartment would be nice to see, but the animatronic CM would be creepy. Maybe she was left from Westworld!

It seems strange it has been almost a year since your family went on this trip. This summer has flown by so fast, I can't get anything done, still haven't decided on a vacation.

OMG!!! You crack me up. I was so lucky not to have her. I even asked if Hitler was up there and the one CM knew exactly who I was talking about.
I touched things too, but we weren't under such strictness. I did not however get to see the bathroom and I am kind of disappointed about that.

Um, I think I had the same guide the first time I went into the apartment! If not, I hate to say, there may be 2 of them! She was older and made us either hang our cameras on the coat rack before we entered the apartment or put them next to the rack. Of course, I got into trouble because I didn't hear her say that. I do not take photos when told not to, and there is no way I was going to hang my good camera on a coat rack, so I put it in my back pack with all the lenses beside the rack. I. was. not. happy. either....! And, yes, I touched

Funny story, though! I'm glad you described it exactly how I felt, too!

All caught up! And I'm very thankful I did not run into the scary CM at Disneyland. I didn't hear any announcements at the Haunted Mansion that they were down to 998 happy haunts, but you never know how these things work.

Really?! That's very interesting about moving out and moving back- you may be the only one I know! You and Kramer!
I know at least 8 people from NJ/NYC that moved there and moved back all for the same reason, it is boring out there.
We had a house on Pickering Lane next to Roxie.

The menu looks so good.
The food looked so good and so much. I would be rolling too. LOL.
Looked like a wonderful meal.
What a wonderful tour.
Love the pin you got.
Such rebels. LOL.
Caught up again.

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

I want to try to get in an update while I have a minute- Sean is supposed to start camp this am and is NOT cooperating, so letting him rest before I start in again- he really HATES transitions, and today is the first day of camp, rather than school, so always a fuss. I'll be honest, it's exhausting. Anyway....

Pods & Stephen and the boys were all here, and so after my tour we met up and attempted to get lunch for them- well, we tried the Carnation Cafe, but that was a long wait, so ended up back at the Plaza because that's where Stephen wanted to go. Today they ordered some pasta-

And more fried chicken- because if you can't have fried chicken two days in a row on vacation, then when can you...

It was nice to sit outside-

Next, we took a ride on the Jungle Cruise, which we had not been on in forever-

After that, we headed over to

So different!

and the same-

We strolled along...

And so did they...

Until we rode Pirates-

which is also different, and much longer and better than our WDW one-

A glimpse of Blue Bayou as we rode by...

Stephen and Bryan were going to go back and take a break, and so was Pods- but T&T and I were thinking it was time for a snack. So off we went to try some Mickey Beignets at the Mint Julep bar....

And just in case you were wondering, they were worth every single calorie! YUM!!

We had one more ride to hit today before going back- Indiana Jones.

This was one of my favorites- I am a big fan of the movies, and WOW does this ride kick that Dinosaur's butt!! The themeing is amazing!!

That was it- we went back to GCV to get ready for dinner at Catal- my favorite dinner of the trip!

Back later with more and replies!

The beignets look yummy. I am still mad at myself for not having some when we stayed at POFQ in 2008.

I hope you were able to get Sean settled. I am sure you are in full countdown mode for Alaska. I can't wait to hear about it.

What a gorgeous, blue sky day you had! Looks like fun.

That Haunted Mansion looks SO cool! Love it!

Now that my 2015 summer vacation plans fell through I am seriously considering a Disneyland trip. I NEED to get out there!

Hope Sean was able to get settled today...hugs, my sweet friend!
