Trader Sams looks like a lot of fun. I read that they are planning one for Poly.
I love that they have the Tangaroa Terrace- they used to have a restaurant by that name at the Poly and we ate at it on our honeymoon.
Happy 25th Anniversary to you and Dale!!!!!

Cars Land is amazing! I can't wait to tell you all about that!
That would be awesome if the Poly gets a Trader Sam's! I may never get Dale to the parks though

Thank you. Our anniversary isn't actually until Dec but due to his job we can never take a vacation at that time so we always celebrate early.

You know - normally I don't live or die for a room view, but that view really was worth it. Just amazing. How cool to see world of color from the room. That's pretty special.

The bar (I already forget its name) looks like a lot of fun. Cute picture of Dale & Caitlin. And cute picture of you hanging out in the teacup.

Nice offerings in the CL and how nice that they decorated the bed. Very cute.

I mean, the engineering that must go into something like that.
Pools are heavy!

In WDW they even have "adult beverages" throughout the day but at DL they are only available during Happy Hour.
Pretty sweet deal!

It was either that or Lucy Lawless.... but we don't have a Xena holiday.


We so should.


Where were we? Oh! Disneyland... Club Level... right.

Actually, I find it fascinating too. I didn't know they were still around.
I'd heard about it, but just assumed it was something that happened (and ended) in the 60s or 70s.

Honestly this place is a must do for adults visiting DL and Dale now tells anyone thinking of DL that they have to go here
Sounds like a blast!

(unbeknownst to me Caitlin posted video of this on Facebook and I was laughing so hard I looked 3 sheets to the wind and all I had was a Coke ) The pictures on the walls also get into the act and the volcano erupts!!
Cool!
Can you explain the "made it rain" part?

I'm usually the same way. At WDW I figure if we get a free upgrade to a view, awesome, but I don't see the point of spending the extra. For DL we had seen pics of the view and since we weren't sure if we'd ever be back we paid the extra and were so glad we did!

Thank you. It was a really fun night and the perfect5 ending to a wonderful day.

lawlessness.... Les Nessman...


Classic episode! "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!!!"

see?

It was either that or Lucy Lawless.... but we don't have a Xena holiday.


We so should.

Hmm I don't know about that one
Where were we? Oh! Disneyland... Club Level... right.

Nope they are still there. We saw them in the parks too.


Sounds like a blast!
It was!


You do?
I never expected that...


ahem...

Do I detect some sarcasm?

Cool!
Can you explain the "made it rain" part?

Ok so I was so into the moment I thought it was raining from the ceiling. Apparently the bartender had a squirt gun

Is the monorail the slide?
Yep!


Absolutely.
I couldn't agree more.

Oh, and the table and chairs are cute, too.

Aww thank you

That's really great.
Only at Disney...

Thanks for the chapter!
Yes I was but that was about the only time the time difference really bothered me.

Thanks for reading!

What a fun day! It sounds so cool for everything to be so close together. I'm glad Caitlin decided to stay up and take pictures from your window. They are awesome. I love theme parks all lit up.

We absolutely fell in love with DL! I think it gets a bad rap from people who try too hard to compare it to WDW rather than just seeing it for what it is. No it didn't
