    Melanie (Disnygrl36), these reindeer have a thing about photographing their backsides, don't they??? :lmao:

    P.S. that is an inside joke as she has pics of their patoot's in her TR, too :scared:

    Just read the DLR portion of your report! Silly and brainless me didn't know you had gone, I thought you were just going to the Jonas Bros concert (and if you told me you were going then I'm even scarier with the brainfree part). :headache:

    I did not know that Chuy was short for Jesus. How did I not know this?

    Sorry you got so sick!

    LOL at those "myspace" type pictures of yours...you actually look like Robert's Korean relatives with your hand gestures...

    Hola Sherry!!!!!

    The camera we use is Jesus' brother's. It's a Casio? It's a point and shoot! I really like it because it takes good night pictures. I usually take my Mom's Canon P&S and I hate it because the night shots come out horrible. That's the camera I took to the JB concert and you can tell the quality is different.

    Yeah! We enjoy Naples a lot! It seems like a lot of the DTD restaurants people either love them or hate them. :confused3

    :lmao: I noticed that on Melanie's too!!!! They like showing off their boooties!!!! :banana: :rotfl:

    OMG. Thank you! :wizard: :hug: Everyone is always cute in front of the castle!!! :lmao: :thumbsup2

    :laughing: I had to copy and paste the menu because it's boring without picture!!!! I didn't want to fool you guys that I'm fluent in Italian!!!! lol. I WISH!

    Omg. Seriously? I have their CDs in my car, I'll check when I drive home! I never noticed that!!! :goodvibes

    Hi Molly!!!!

    Yah! Chuy! Jesus' family on his Dad side calls him Chuyito (little Chuy) since his Dad is Jesus too. I just call him Jesus, lol. When we were coming through the turnstiles the CM scanning our APs said Happy Birthday to Jesus. Looked at his AP, looked at his Button and said "Uh, I thought your name is Jesus?" Jesus said "It is, but Chuy is short for Jesus" and then CM just looked at him all confused. :rotfl: It was kind of funny!!

    :rotfl: Peace signs are so Asian. Jesus has smaller, slanted eyes and when we both do peace signs and squint our eyes we look like total Asian tourists...

    People think I'm Korean sometimes.... :hippie:

    Omg. An update! Hi everyone! :wave2: :goodvibes So today will be the day I FINALLY finish this TR! And you want to know why? 1) We already have another trip in February and 2) I royally am horrible at TRs and keeping them up. So this needs to be finished so I can start the PTR for my next trip!!!! :cheer2: ::yes:: (Uhh.. What happened to all the smileys? ---> They're all mixed up now! :confused3)

    Okay... Ready.. Here we goooooo.....


    Thursday, December 4 - DLR Day 4

    So today's plan was to eat lunch, do a little shopping and go to DCA and get some corndogs to take home. This is usually our plan on our last day before we head home, but the same thing always happens every single dang time. We get sidetracked and end up leaving when the sun is setting. That is a no no! Hello? Someone (me!!!) needs to go to work the next day! So we were on a mission to leave the park before 2. Did we do it?

    So we got up early and packed our things. This was checking out of the Hojo day. And while I was getting ready, making sure we didn't forget everything and running around like a mad woman, what do you think Jesus is doing?

    [​IMG]

    If anyone said watching football. You get 2 points. :thumbsup2 :rotfl2:

    Oh and I made these for the Housekeeping to leave their tip in. Cute, huh?

    [​IMG]

    One last shot of the Matterhorn out our wonderful view.

    [​IMG]

    So I call the front desk to check us out, Jesus takes everything down stairs and packs it in his car and we just drive to the parking structure.

    We got to DL first to grab some lunch and just check everything out. I wanted to take a trip to Fantasyland first so we made our way to the castle. But we were sidetracked (ha!) by this wonderful band.

    [​IMG]

    So after they were finished performing we made our way through Fantasyland and out the back towards Big Thunder Mountain. We then passed this very big headed cowboy. Jessie is there too, but you can't see her face.

    [​IMG]

    We passed the Mark Twain.

    [​IMG]

    Passed the Golden Horse Shoe.

    [​IMG]

    Pass the Rivers of America (anyone guess where we're going yet?).

    [​IMG]

    And we also passed (but I didn't take pictures of) Pirates, HMH and Splash and made it to our final destination....! Hungry Bear!

    [​IMG]

    Yes, we're hungry.

    I love how he's watching football...sounds like Jason! :rotfl:

    Can't wait to hear the rest!

    :cheer2: YAY for another trip in February!!

    So we ordered our food and tried to find a seat upstairs, but they had that section towards the back (and of course where we always sit) roped off, so we went downstairs to sit down there. While we were trying to get settled these guys were making a
    ruckus.

    [​IMG]

    I never knew Br'er Bear was a bad guy until like 2 weeks ago. I thought him and Br'er Rabbit were BFFs. :lmao: Duh. I guess I don't pay attention during the ride huh? :confused3

    [​IMG]

    I have no idea what the fox is doing right here.

    [​IMG]

    Okay! On with the food porn. Jesus ordered the bacon cheeseburger with fries and I got a regular cheeseburger with apple slices. We also ordered onion rings and funnel cake to share. I don't have pictures of our burgers, but here's our funnel cake and onion rings.

    [​IMG]

    After our meal we said goodbye to Disneyland. :sad1: :sad1: :sad1: And made our way to DCA. On our way out we saw the Goof.

    [​IMG]

    I like this weather for DLR the best. Overcast and cold. Snuggly! :goodvibes

    [​IMG]

    First we had to make a stop for me.

    [​IMG]

    We then walked to the castle in DCA... Duhh. Corn Dog Castle!

    [​IMG]

    The poor Sun Wheel.

    [​IMG]

    So I really REALLY wanted a pickle before we left. While Jesus was in line buying 12 corndogs, I walked alllll the way over on the other side by Bug's Land to go get myself a pickle. On the way I took a picture of TOT. I was briskly walking and trying to take a good picture, hence a little blurry.

    [​IMG]

    AT LAST! A pickle! Okay, we can go now!

    [​IMG]

    So we left.. :sad1: :sad1: Us on the tram back to the parking structure. I was really crying inside...

    [​IMG]

    I'm not sure what time it was when we got on the freeway. But there was loads of traffic. And it took us forever to get home (not an hour!).

    Here's Scary Teddy waiting for us to leave the parking structure.

    [​IMG]

    And this is the last picture. A picture of LA while we were stuck in traffic.

    [​IMG]

    I hope everyone enjoyed my TR!!! :sad: :flower3: :grouphug:

    I was just about to say NOooooooooooooo!!! It can't end yet! But then I remembered you are going to DLR in February so there will be another TR soon!:cool1: I had just replied to your post over in my TR, but then decided to stalk you over into this thread too!!

    I also noticed the smilies are all reorganized and nothing is in the place it was before.

    I agree with you - I love that cold and gloomy weather because it is fun to bundle up at DLR! I just love DLR during that whole December period of time. There is nothing like it!

    I chuckled at the picture of Woody and his giant head!! And Buzz lightyear had a small head and giant shoulders!

    I have never eaten at Hungry Bear - or if I have, I don't remember it because it was so long ago. I have heard mixed reviews on the food, but what you said you guys ordered sound so good right about now. A burger, some onion rings and funnel cake! Yum!

    Oh, and by the way, I think that the little envelopes you made for Housekeeping are adorable! I am sure they really appreciate when someone takes the time to make something a little special for them and personalize it. That is a really sweet and thoughtful thing to do! It's more personal than just leaving a five dollar bill on the table by itself!

    Anyway, hurry up with this February trip so we can get a new installment of the TR with new pictures!!

    :goodvibes Hi Karen!!

    You have to eat at the Hungry Bear! We really enjoy, but I've heard a lot of people don't really care for it... :confused3

    :cheer2: :cheer2: For February!!!

    Hi-ya Sherry! I know, I'm sad this TR is over. I think that's why I was lagging. :sad:

    I'm excited for February!! I need to call the Hojo and make reservations this weekend. So like today!! :hyper:

    I really like the Hungry Bear! So does Jesus. I'm a little weird when it comes to food though. I like everything and anything. I hardly get sick to my stomach, even when everyone else is because of food. So I pretty much like everything and am happy with anything. But Hungry Bear is goood! They just have burgers. But I have heard mixed reviews here about that place. You should go try it!!

    I made those envelopes a long time ago and for some reason we never used them. I'm glad because I know I would be so happy if I got one of those!

    Sherry! When's your next trip!!!

    I don't know yet. I have nothing in the works at the moment. But I figure as long as I have the AP, I will have to make a solo trip or two to DLR for the day at some point (that is, if I don't hop into the Ladies Only trip at the last minute). I'll try to go on my birthday, but not sure if I will be able to if I am working. And then, possibly another Halloweentime weekend trip - I have to see what DLR does with the HMH this year, or IF they do the overlay, since the HM 40th anniversary is this year and they may skip it. If they don't do the overlay, I may skip DLR for Halloweentime this year and just aim for a Holiday trip. I will have to play it by ear and see how things go with $$$. But I think I would like to try the Hungry Bear restaurant at some point!! That and Whitewater Snacks.

    It would be cool if DLR really decked itself out for ALL the fun holidays, like if they had fun Valentine's and Easter decorations everywhere, and a bunch of green stuff for St. Patrick's Day, etc. But those holidays are not important enough, I guess.

    Yay!! You finished the TR!

    I'm sooo jealous that you got the scary teddy! I SOOO want one. Not the small one you have though, I want the bigger one. I never seem to find them selling it at DLR :confused3

    Oh well! I love your pic of goofy with the little boy. TOo cute! Oh, and I'm so jealous you got to see the California with the candy cane stripes on 'em! When we went, it wasn't up! BLeh. OH WELL!

    Oh did those striped letters come down before January 4th? I assumed they stayed up until the rest of the decorations came down. I was glad I got some shots with them too, because I had ignored them in 12/07 and they will be gone soon enough!

    Anyway, Courtney, did you realize that this TR thread has had more than 20,500 views??? Way to go, girl! :thumbsup2 That makes it one of the most active (and I guess, popular) Trip Reports currently in circulation! You have surpassed a whole bunch of people....and to think, you kept us all waiting so long for the conclusion!! Meanwhile, you had all these people (many of them lurking, I suppose) waiting eagerly for you to come back!! Your February trip will likely bring in a whole new crop of readers!!

    This is a totally dumb question, but maybe someone can answer since I couldn't figure it out on the boards. I am sure it must be really easy and I am missing something. If I want to insert a link to my TR in my signature (and I already have the standard one) with a different name or title - like yours, Courtney - how do I do that? I only know to copy and paste the existing link, but how do I actually make a link that's called what I want it to be called, like even if just to call it "Trip Report"? I found instructions somewhere on DIS, but they didn't seem to make sense. Again, it must be really easy, but I have never had to do that before for any reason so am not sure of the steps!!:goodvibes

    We changed our next trip from February to May. So I totally know what you mean about the job issue depending if you take a trip. We were originally planning to go in February and May for my birthday, but Jesus AND me are in the process of finding new jobs. I have to take a test for one I applied for in 2 weeks and Jesus has a meeting thing for one next week. We both thought IF we get the jobs February wouldn't be the best time to ask for time off. So May it is! My birthday is on the 1st. So we're planning April 30th through the 3rd most likely. Plus that gives me money to save and to catch up on stuff.

    I totally think you should take a solo trip! I think it would be so much fun for you, Sherry!!

    Oh yeah, I really want to eat at White Water Snacks too!!!

    I know! Wooohoooo!!!!!! ::yes:: :cheer2:

    I didn't even see the big Scary Teddy! Or I would have gotten that one!!!!

    Jasmine! Are you guys going back for your birthday? Or the end of May? I remember hearing (seeing?) you say (type?) you were going Memorial Day weekend? We changed our days to May and it's just toooo far away!!!

    I know!! I have so many page views!!!! Thank you everyone!! :grouphug: :flower3: :upsidedow

    I bet that my title says JONAS BROTHERS CONCERT has A LOT to do with it though!! :joker:

    Okay! So let me see if I can explain it. Go to your User CP and to the part where you edit your siggie. And say you want to name your siggie "Sherry's totally awesome TR" (or whatever). Type whatever you want to name it and highlight it. Then you click up there the little globe with the link. Copy and paste the link of your TR into the little box. Viola! It should have the name of your link along with the link it self. Does that make sense?

    Great TR Courtney! I've really enjoyed reading along and seeing all your pics. I can't wait to be back at Disney. And I bet you can't either. Glad to hear you've already got another trip in the works. :thumbsup2

    You explained it perfectly! I tested it out and it worked! Of course, then I wasn't sure what I wanted to call the TR, so I left it as it originally was for the moment until I decide, but at least I know HOW to change the title now!!! I knew it had to be something simple, but the instructions I found somewhere were too complicated!! Thank you, Courtney!!:goodvibes :grouphug:
