Since my mom is getting over being sick I thought I would post an update! Send good vibes and pixie dust her way so she can get better faster!

When I last left off we had an early night because today we were going to be exploring Carsland!!! I, of course, got up early and headed to the gym! While I was working out mom and dad were watching the sunrise over Radiator Springs



Yeah everyone proceed to drool over our room placement!



I got back from the gym and hurried to get ready. I ended up eating breakfast on the go because we had a park to get to people!!!



We used the secret special entrance through the Grand Californian and before we knew it we were here!



Now mom had read somewhere that the racing cars weren't open first thing in the morning so we decided to try out the other rides that were open in this area.





This area is so well themed!



and empty!





We got on and mom automatically wanted to get off the ride! She didn't realize it went around in circles and jerked you back and forth! For those of you that don't know she gets horrible motion sickness which is why dad and I always do the tougher rides together!



A couple of shots around the area








It was a lot of fun but needless to say mom did not want to ride again!

So we headed to our next destination



Passed by the petting zoo





It was amazing! It was like we walked right in to the movie!



We were all rocking our Monsters t shirts today!



This was our destination








It's so cool to see the rest of the shop!



You could tell where Luigi came from!

Dad sat on his own tire while mom and I shared a tire. These things are really hard to operate!





You're supposed to lean which way you want it to go so for the left you lean left for the right you lean right and so on. Well these are really heavy and if you don't lean properly your tire will hit the ground and not move!

Dad was really good on his tire so he spent most of the time laughing at mom and I!

After our ride we checked out Radiator Springs some more!





The second blink of the yellow light really was longer!

There's Stanley!



Once we got to the back we were surprised and a little upset to see that the racers were open! We had spent all of that time on the little rides when we could have been on the major one!



We quickly jumped in line!



We found this sign funny and I sent a pic to my grandma (Ursula) so that she could show my grandpa Stan!

Now you can marvel at this amazing line!










It's just amazing how they brought this to life!



Now you can laugh at Butte Gas





That's a big Butte!



Finally we were up there! It took a while in line and we amused ourselves by playing charades! I suggest downloading it for your next disney trip! It's a phone app that tells you different characters and you have to get the person to guess the characters or movies. They have disney specific ones so we stuck to those! It was a lot of fun!



I was so excited to ride this!



You start off with a ride through the city






Of course you have to stop by Luigi's and get some new tires!






Then you are cleared to go!



and Luigi is there to cheer you on!

Those pictures are really great. You really took a lot of time to get the right number of pictures with the right detail. Carsland looks so amazing. I can't wait to see it someday. And the racers ride looks like too much fun. Your dad looks pretty laid back but you and your mom look like you are having a blast.

Once again that view from your room is amazing. I think you need to start every update with it just so we can all see it again and again!

I am WAY late to this game, but at least I'm caught up now! I have to say, reading through your TR and seeing all those pictures is making me really want to take a trip to DL.

I hope all is well with your family. Tell Dale we're thinking about him and we hope everything works out ok.
