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!

Thank you!

A lot of the pictures I took are from my iPhone and I am now in love with it!

It is!

It was a great ride!

My dad tends to be the laid back one out of the three of us

It was such a great view!

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

You should go!

Thank you we appreciate that!

I can't get over how many people don't go to the gym on vacation!

See? Your folks know how to treat a holiday.







And she's still sick!



Thanks for taking all the pics!

That's my job!

There are more choices than left or right?

Front and back





What a cool idea for a bouquet!


The whole area was very clever!
How was the line by this time?

It was about an hour or so

Pretty impressive.



Is it just me, or does the logo look like a toilet?

A little

That all looks pretty cool!



Hmmmm.... not sure. You guys are very subtle.

:

My mom and I wear our excitement on our sleeve

Don't you wish you could stay in one?

Idk I think it might be a bit small space wise

I dunno if I'd pick those people up. They look like they're up to something.

That is true we usually are

Can't wait! As always, great pics Caitlin! And thanks for the update!
Thank you! You're welcome! Thank you for reading!

Princess Caitlin, Disney is missing the mark by assigning you to attractions. You look like Anna from Frozen! Love your trip report. Hope your mom feels better soon.

Cars Land looks absolutely amazing!!! I cannot believe the detail they put into it. So were you able to get in early by staying where you did or was that a regular opening?

It is! Disney does it best!

Yep it was an Extra Magic Hour morning. They work the same way as WDW does with only hotel guests getting in early.

Once we hitched a ride out of Carsland it was time to check out the rest of the park!




I just love this ferris wheel! ( I know it's named like a fun wheel or something but for all intents and purposes it's a ferris wheel with cars that could possibly move back and forth and cause people to throw up)

Our first ride over here was



It was so weird how fast this line moved! Compared to DHS this was nothing!

It also feels a lot more like a carnival game here too



I am not sure who won but the ride is essentially the same.

After we got our arm work out dad and I headed to ride California Screamin



Which was awesome! I love this ride!!

We then continued our strolling



It's amazing how they designed this park! You can go from the Boardwalk to



The Wilderness Lodge in just a couple minutes

I also love how the did the old Hollywood theme!





It is so cool looking at the California scene Walt would have been greeted with!

Our lunch was here



You don't go to DCA and not eat here!!

The whole area is just amazing





Plus they have a very cute Starbucks!



We of course had to stop!



Aw look mom and dad get a cinnamon bun and I get grapes! #glutenfreeproblems

Dad and I thought we would check out Soarin' so we headed over to that part of the park



This also gives you an idea just how close the Grand Californian is to the park! That log cabin place is the hotel!

On our way we got stopped by some musicians



DCA has the best bands!!

Plus who doesn't like a snazzy Goofy?!



During the one of numbers dad ended up finding his next wife



His face in this picture is priceless



You can tell he is in love!




But then mom punched the woman in the face and started this huge bloody cat fight in the middle of the park what can I say my mom is territorial..


Just kidding!




The music was great and we had a ton of fun!

We also saw this streetmosphere actress



Who had a dog puppet with her No judgement..



I just feel like they took DHS and was like "Let's make this epic" and we ended up with DCA



I mean everything is just immaculate I love it soo much!







Plus their TOT is awesome!



so Dad and I headed over to Soarin' at some point and mom headed to the bakery to go on the tour of it.






Their Soarin' is very cute and the entire area is airplane themed





and their line is way better



Lining the walls they have pictures of famous fliers and what they accomplished. It was pretty cool and we got to read a lot about them because we were stuck in line for over 40 minutes due to the ride breaking down

Once we were done mom was happy to see us and also happy we ran in to the show she wanted to see!




For those who don't know these are Minnie's Fly Girls!








The show was adorable!



and then we headed to lunch!

Next up eating at Carthay Circle!
