I wish the queue at Soarin in WDW was less boring. The street performers look pretty awesome too. I never get to see them, not sure if it's because of bad timing or because no one else wants to stay and watch! Maybe I'll get a chance in September.

Hmmm we booked WCC for our WOC package over Carthay I will be looking for your next installment, but it sounds like it was fantastic!

Love all the photos of the scenery. I Need to do more of that. My TR's are 99% pics of my DD.

So, you didn't ride the Fun Wheel?

I do too! In Florida it just looks like an airport terminal and they definitely put more work in to the DCA Q!

I hope you get to see some! We don't always stop but try to catch them on our way to and from rides

I don't think you will be disappointed however you book! My mom can be picky eater and thought Carthay sounded the best to her.

I am usually the one behind the camera and I take pictures of anything and everything!

I did! It did make me feel a bit sick though! My motto was Idk if I will come back so I better try it!

I just joined in a few days ago and finally got all caught up! I love your report so far! It is fun to see DLR through a WDW vet's perspective. You guys have me hooked on staying at the PPH one day! That view....

Caitlyn, congrats on being accepted into the college program! Back when I was first starting college I went through the interviews to get in the program myself, but I backed out for a few different reasons. I am so excited for you though! I will have to check out your other thread you started about it.

Looking forward to reading more!

Princess Caitlin, I love your photos. I have walked by these places many times and have not really seen them. Your photos are showing me what I have missed. You have a photographer's eye!

It always amazes me how much territory people cover at DL. It seems that you can go from one attraction to the next fairly quickly. It's pretty cool. Soarin looks really cute.

OMG - that picture of your dad wrapped up in the Boa is TOO funny!

Love the picture of your two on the coaster.

Bakery tour? That sounds interesting.

Bring on lunch!

Everything is much closer here than it is at the other parks due to the lack of space.

It is!

We were cracking up!

Thank you!

Yeah they have a tour of it and the tour mainly consists of a video with Rosie O' Donnell and seeing where they make it. They then give you a free piece of sourdough bread at the end!

It blends in very well!

Whoever else you rode with won.
It's a known fact that on the disboards, if you can't remember who won...

I think I may have rode solo

I like to look at the expressions of other people on the rides.

I never noticed that before!

That bun looks to die for. Sucks that you couldn't have one.

Agreed!

Best picture ever!

No unfortunately. My mom knows better than to get in to a fight with Disney and risk being banned!

It was a neat experience and worth the wait!

When we last left off we were headed to our lunch ADR! We were all excited to try out Carthay Circle!



It was so pretty inside! The first level of the restaurant was the bar area/waiting room.



The pictures were all from different premieres that had happened at Carthay Circle





All of the different memorabilia was really cool!



We took this for my grandma who has always been a big fan of Shirley Temple!

After a while we were escorted upstairs and saw this beautiful ceiling



The entire restaurant was very fancy!



We had gotten the World of Color package for that night which is very similar to the Fantasmic packages at DHS. You get an app, an entrée and a dessert.



I am going to guess this was what dad had Pumpkin Tortilla Broth - with Cilantro Grilled Chicken, Crisp Tortillas, Cream Fraiche.

Although I think it may have been something else It was good though!


The best part of this restaurant though?



The gluten free bread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so amazing!! Compare this to this



Yeah no contest

Even dad liked it! He usually tries the gluten free then instantly regrets it and this time he didn't!



Mom had Carthay Green Salad - Jicama, Cucumber, Cilantro, and Orange White Balsamic Vinaigrette.

For my meal I had



Skuna Bay Salmon -on Fresh Golden Tomato Salsa, Avocado and Cucumber Relish

Which was very good!

Dad had




Sauteed Short Rib Raviolis - Portobello Mushrooms, Red Pepper and Cabernet Jus.


Which he also enjoyed!

Mom had




Rigatoni Pasta with Roasted Chicken - Pancetta, Wilted Spinach, and Pinot Jus

We all enjoyed our food and it just looked so pretty!

For dessert Mom had



None of the descriptions fit what she got but I think it was good!

Dad had



Cordillera Chocolate Decadent Layer Cake - with Raspberry Sauce.


and I had




I definitely got stiffed on the dessert but oh well..


We enjoyed our lunch and were happy we chose Carthay as our big sit down meal for the World of Color package!

Once we were done we headed out and ran in to some Newsies!



Again DCA rocks with the shows!



It was a very cute show and after we got some pics around the new partners statue!



It's supposed to represent what Mickey and Walt looked like when they first got to California! This area was still fairly new when we went and I had been so anxious to see this!

After a picture we continued wandering around DCA

And found our way to Wonderland





This is a very cool area! They have dance parties back here and change it according to the movies that come out! Before Alice in Wonderland they had, had a Tron theme.

Our next stop fit our clothing choice for the day





I have to say I kind of like that they have a ride instead of the Laugh Floor..






The area and the theming were again spot on!

No hanky panky on the rides they are watching...Always watching







So I guess Monstropolis hasn't made it to the "cell phone age" yet!





They also have this in the Laugh Floor!



I'm glad they don't actually sell this soda







Finally it was our turn!



It so looks like Mike is putting the moves on Celia!




It was so colorful in here



There were tvs on your ride vehicle which showed different newscasts about the child on the loose.





This one turned out especially well



Harry Hausen's



Someone is not happy!





Sorry Celia!

When you exit the ride Roz interacts with you. She told my dad she liked his hair and laughed

We all loved this ride!!!

Up next: The parade I took way too many pictures of!

Even before reading your description, I immediately thought, "I bet that's supposed to be Walt and Mickey when they first got to California."
