Me, DH, DS5 and DS4 (birthday boy) went to DL on 10/11-10/12/13. We arrived on Thursday night in good time...got up early Friday, although we were hoping the boys would sleep in a little bit. Then my DH got called from work and spent the next 3 hours working. (Which put him in a lovey mood). Then we were finally off to DTD. We had planned to eat at ESPN zone, then my DH wanted to try Trader Sams. We went in and it took forever for someone to acknowledge us and give us menus. Then we realized there wasn't anything our kids would really want to eat, and our DS4 was scared and thought the volcano was real so we went to go try Rainforest Café. (which also scared DS4, but he finally got over it after receiving his food). We had a great server and ok food...DS4 loved his dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets and ate ALL of them! So we were happy. DS5 liked his noodles with butter too LOL. DS4 was quite scared of the gorilla, so I had to keep explaining that he wasn't real and he stays in the same spot all day and night, and he doesn't eat or drink. So no more Rainforest Café for us for awhile, haha. Then we headed to ESPN zone to play some games...a favorite was the bowling game, and we were shocked how good the boys were! They also liked air hockey and the motorcycle games. We had fun, then headed back to the hotel for some quiet time and to get ready for the Halloween party...our plan was to enter at 4. We all relaxed and enjoyed some quiet time. Then I started getting ready. I had to do my hair and make-up for the party. It didn't take me as long as I anticipated. And I was happy how it all turned out. Then we had to get on our costumes. After a couple minor repairs, we were on our way. A little after 4! Success. We had a 5:30 ADR at the Carnation. The lines were long to get in, but moved fast and we made friends with the nice people behind us. DS5 started to not feel well. We thought it was nerves, as he was excited and nervous for the party. We got in, got our paper ticket and wrist band, the CM told us if we didn't get enough candy we would be derezzed, so that was awesome! LOL. DS5 thought that was cool! We stopped at the little souvenir stand at the right tunnel and bought DS5 a water (because I totally forgot to bring our cooler! Duh!) and the nice CM there gave us an empty bag to store our candy in. So nice!! Then we headed to the Carnation after checking out the awesome decorations on MSUSA. We were early for our reservation, but they took us in right away. It was nice. I was still full from lunch, so I just got a side salad. DH got the soup. DS4 got mac n cheese and DS5 got the fried chicken. We all ate pretty well. Then we proceeded to get our costumes all set up and turned on. The CMs in the Carnation were so nice and loving our costumes. Then we headed over to ToonTown. Along the way, we heard so many people saying, Its TRON! saw a CM that said, Greetings Programs! It was awesome! I felt so happy for my DH who put countless hours of work into our costumes. The boys were SO excited. We dumped the stroller off at IASW, then got in line for ToonTown. We thought the line moved fast, and they were checking wristbands along the way. The first line we got in was a bit chaotic at first, because no one knew where to go, but the rest of the lines were fast and easy to navigate. We got A TON of candy in TT. More to come!
