Anyone Game? 2 Castles and a Road Trip TR! Last Day and TR Wrap Up! #2796; 10/01

Anyone Game? Two Castles and a Road Trip TR!

Anyone Game? G’day.
And welcome to my Two Castles and a Road Trip TR.

And yes, you read it right. TWO Castles (and a road trip in between).
I don’t mean any combination of the 3 castles that seems to exist in Magic Kingdom right now….I mean the Sleeping Beauty castle at Disneyland.....

.....and the Cinderella castle at Magic Kingdom.

This TR will cover the 27 days that I was on vacay for and it will probably be picture heavy.

If a picture paints a thousand words. Just like in the song, I started this vacay when my love for life was running dry. It had been a pretty hard year at work and with real life; so I was in need of a battery recharge real bad. I found my love for life in spades......


......and sunsets during the road trip.

If a picture paints a thousand words; and if you can find a dozen words to describe something, I’ll be the one managing to do it in a hundred. Or more. Feel free to count up and let me know the final tally at the end.

If a picture paints a thousand words and I use about 100 words to describe each picture, then we’re all gonna be here for a TR bigger than Tolstoy’s War and Peace. By my current rough count, I’ve come home with somewhere between 9,000 and 10,000 pictures. You can do the maths.

If you’ve made it this far and still plan to stick with me, I thank you for coming along on the ride. I really appreciate your feedback and hope that you'll end up posting; rather than just lurking along.

Should you feel the burning desire, my itinerary for this trip and the PTR can be found here. But before you click on the link, you should know that the PTR is more of a blog and there are over a year of posts there.

Which means we’ve come to the DISClaimers section that I tend to stick up in any of my TRs.

  • I hereby absolve all responsibility for any therapy that you might want to claim as a result of reading through this TR. Just remember….we are in an open forum and it is your choice to read along......right? And who knows? We might end up being 2D friends in a box along the journey.
  • I openly acknowledge that this TR will cover more than the standard WDW content on this section of the boards. If any mod feels like it doesn’t strictly meet the guidelines of DisContent, well….please PM me. But it just doesn’t seem to make sense to me to break this report up into at least four sections (Disneyland, California and beyond, where-the-heck-do-I-stick-the-roadtrip-component-because-I-sure-ain’t-posting-it-on-the-Community-Board-section, WDW and Universal Orlando). I would hope that the mods will just turn a blind eye until about Day 16 or 17; when I finally get to WDW.
  • Despite the road trip through Arizona, the itinerary did not include hitting the “games” board in Vegas. Anything that did not happen in Vegas, does not stay in Vegas.
  • Despite the road trip, I sadly did not literally take the left fork at Alburquerque. I did try hard to include it in; but it just didn’t fit. Happily, I will guarantee that I will figuratively take the left fork at most possible turns during this TR.
  • Food porn is usually a feature in my posts. Anyone who feels strongly about food should be eaten and not photographed…please be aware that no correspondence will be entered into on this matter.
  • As always, deviations and deviants off-topic are usually another feature. Don’t worry…it’s not you, it’s me (although if you stick around, you could discover that it is you too….we just don’t know for sure yet).
  • Above all else….lurk if you must…but I would appreciate you posting and providing input and feedback into ‘our’ blog! Afterall…How else is this going to be am I going to get deviations and deviants? NOTE: I really do mean FUN!! FUN!! I mean FUN!!

Who am I?

In any TR, one of the done things to do is to introduce oneself so that one does not seem to be so much of a stranger to the readers. I guess I had better do that.

This is me......

.......and I have been lurking on the boards since 2004 and a member since 2010. You'll find me hanging out with the Games, Photographers and the Aussie section of the Boards and lurking about on the CB. Contrary to popular belief, I'm really the shy and retiring kind.

My fingers, on the other hand.....well......on both hands......my fingers; they're the really sociable and chatty type. My post count has taken a complete hit during my time away as I try hard to go near a screen of any description when on holiday. Afterall, I spend enough time in front of one when working that when it comes to holiday time, I really feel the need to disconnect as much as possible.

And it also seems to be the done thing to introduce my travel companions and other cast members that may feature along the way. Pictures of my travel companions and cast members will be posted along the way; and I may come back and update this section at a later date.

My travel companions include my DS. He is 13 and he shows every sign of being a Disnophile, providing rollercoaster thrill rides are included. Currently, he's playing the new Pokemon game and is intent on re-naming all his Pokemon captures based on a Disney character. Yes, my job as a mom is done.

I'm also travelling with my DH. He is not 13 and he understands my love of Disney and happy to let me plan Disney vacays providing we pepper it with other activities. Having said that, I suspect that our next vacation destination will need to be somewhere where he can chill-ax a lot more than I allowed him to do on this one. He definitely isn't 13 anymore.

Other Cast Members include a whole bunch of Dis-sers. Afterall, this trip was planned based around a week long DisMeet with a couple of Gamers from that section of the board. The DisMeets turned out to be a heap of fun and it was great cementing the 2D friends in a box relationships in 3D.

The Dis-sers include:
  • franandaj. Her TR of the meets can be found here.
  • twofeathers
  • mvf-m11, His TR can be found here. If you're interested in our DLR meets, start on page 207.
  • BringingUpDisney
  • 5ofUs
  • meriweather
  • dhorner
  • goopysolelady
  • Bobbiwoz
  • SunDial
  • TiffanyD
  • luvchefmic. Her references for the DisMeets can be found here, here and here.
  • leshaface
  • Jade+3
  • WanderlustNZ. Her TR can be found here.
  • GrazingGoat1966

To the best of my knowledge, no one wore cement boots to any of the meets.

I guess that's the intro's done. Here's to the TR posts.....and pictures loading up quick!
