    The "pretty lady" with the bow :cutie: reminds me of Lady Gaga, have you seen her HAIR bow? It's crazy.

    The guy on TOT is SOOOO funny! It's like he's not on a ride at all, weirdo! Ooh, and i really like your shirt you're wearing in that pic!

    Want. That. Cake. And I'll take the enchiladas too :) Is it lunch time yet? I can hear my Pizza Pops calling my name from the work fridge, heehee! Healthy Friday lunch, I know :lmao:

    Thank you. :goodvibes It took a good 2 days for my mouth to feel better.

    Oh man the chocolate cake was so good. We finished the whole thing. It was heavenly. :cloud9:

    Buy all of them!! I'm not a HUGE cake person, but at DL I want to try all the cakes they have! That chocolate one was soooo good!! The mile high one looks amazing. Sherry, get all of them!!!

    :rotfl: Jesus was like yelling wooo! or something. He was probably laughing because another guy was having fun and he probably felt left out he wasn't yelling at having fun too!!!

    No! We didn't even look at the wait time. Okay, maybe it was like 40 minutes? I don't remember though. I forget how fun that ride is.

    :lmao: My Mom was watching Lady Gaga on the Ellen Degeneres show the other day and she told me "I don't get her". She had some weird floating circle thing on her head. :laughing: :confused3

    All the food we had was sooo good...!! Hey, who needs to eat healthy! Ha! You're skinny anyways!! :yay:

    Thursday April 30th - DLR Day 3

    Hi everyone! Did you miss me!!?? I missed you guys. Let's get going on day 3 of my TR!! Woohoo!!

    This day was our Minnie and Friend's breakfast day. We originally had our PS for 9:10, but as soon as soon as Disney Dining opened I called and changed our PS for a 10:00. We slept in a little longer and got up and got ready for breakfast. This whole trip we just drove to the Mickey and Friend's parking structure. We were going to walk, but we never did. We saw a couple other people walking to and from our hotel, it didn't look too far. If we stay there again we may try walking.

    The park opened at 10 this day and we calculated our time wrong and got right to bag check at 10. So we were running late. We left the hotel at 9:30 and it took us 30 minutes to park and take the tram. I never realized it takes that long. Well we got to the Plaza Inn and the CM still had us down for our 9:10 PS. I told her I called and changed it and she said no problem. They let us in and a CM took us to the little cardboard thing and we took a picture. The same CM let us inside and we chatted with two other CMs for awhile. I was wearing my Cinderella shirt and she asked if Cinderella is my favorite princess. I told her not really, I just liked the shirt. If I had a list of my favorite princesses, Cinderella is probably last. But I didn't tell her that. ;) So then she asked if we ever been to the Plaza Inn, we told her no and she showed us around. I thought that was really neat. She then showed us to our seat, we were sitting in the corner next to the kitchen door where the characters come out. It was a nice seat because you could see that whole side of the restaurant from there.

    When we were being seating Minnie was near our table.

    [​IMG]

    So was Tigger.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We got up and got our food. I got biscuits and gravy, ham, sasuage, eggs, potatoes, and fresh fruit. Jesus got the same and he also got an omelet. I loved the choice of beverages there. I got a hot mocha coffee thing. It was sooo good.

    [​IMG]

    The first character to our table was the White Rabbit. He was darling.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    You'll notice, pretty much only I took pictures with the characters. The way our table was and how close it was to the other table, it was hard for both Jesus and I to get out (we sat next to each other), so just I did.. But he was a good sport and took the pictures. He was in some of them. Well, you'll see..

    This was our view from our table. I think the Plaza Inn is such a beautiful restaurant. I loved just looking around.

    [​IMG]

    Next came Dale.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I took a picture of his fuzzy butt.

    [​IMG]

    A CM came with a big thing of pretty balloons. She gave me a pink one.

    [​IMG]

    Next came Captain Hook. He was a crack up. He kissed my hand and then tried to steal the ring off my finger.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Rafiki came to our table next. He had really crazy hair.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    At some point we got up and got more food. I don't remember in between what character though.

    Minnie came next. She was really really really teeny tiny. I had tilt my head and bend my knees to be the same height as her.

    [​IMG]

    She wanted a picture with Jesus and I too. I look weird here because I was trying to be the same size as her, I just look hunchback.

    [​IMG]

    Br'er Fox!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Dale came by again too.

    [​IMG]

    And then Br'er Fox came back and took a picture.

    [​IMG]

    Eeyore was walking around with a balloon tied to his tail. He had the CM do it. It came undone a couple times and he kept having her re-tie it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He was big and fluffy.

    Next Tigger came and sat down at our table. We asked if he wanted any of our food, but he wanted to try on our sunglasses that were sitting on the table.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He then went to hang out with the Fairy Godmother.

    [​IMG]

    She was the last character to come see us.

    [​IMG]

    I have a dumb look on my face because she told us to say "pumpkin" on the count of 3 and I thought that was freaking soo funny.

    [​IMG]

    I thought the chandellier was pretty.

    [​IMG]

    That was such a wonderful and fun breakfast. We both just had a blast and we thought the food was fantastic. We would eat there again and we probably will!

    After that we walked around a bit. I popped my balloon and stuck it in my bag. Oh, we also bought the Photopass picture they took of us when we first walked into the restaurant. I'll take a picture of it for you all to see. After sitting down for awhile, we went on BTMRR. I think the wait was about 10 or 15 minutes.

    [​IMG]

    It was semi warm out, so we decided to walk to Critter Country and go on Splash. This was probably the only second time we went through the standby line. We usually always use FP for this. We waited about 15 minutes.

    [​IMG]

    Hidden Mickey?

    [​IMG]

    I like this statue.

    [​IMG]

    And this sign.

    [​IMG]

    The CM asked if we wanted to sit in the front or the back. I said the back and Jesus was like "Nooo! Let's sit in the front!!". But I won and we sat in the back. Good thing because the girls in the front were soaked! And Jesus and I barely got wet. His leg was wet and I got a little spot on my knee. Woohoo!! It's fun enjoying the ride when you're not drenched.

    [​IMG]

    These 2 were outside when we exited.

    [​IMG]

    We decided we were going to go check out DCA, so we made our way to the Esplanade. On our way out I took some pictures of neat things.

    Like Jasmine!

    [​IMG]

    I have about 100 pictures of this.

    [​IMG]

    We went straight to Hollywood Pictures Backlot because we wanted to see Aladdin. We were a little early so we stopped in Off the Page to look around. While we were looking around Mickey, Woody and Cinderella walked in...

    [​IMG]

    After that we went to the Animation Building. Cinderella, Mickey and Woody were doing a meet and greet in there. We went and looked at the zoetrope for awhile.

    [​IMG]

    After that we went to get our spot for Aladdin. We saw Goofy on the way.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We wanted to sit in the orchestra section because Jesus lost one of his contacts that morning and he didn't have his glasses (they were at the hotel), but it got full right when we got there. So we had to sit in the middle. We were in the front row, but I don't think he could see that well even though he didn't complain.

    Great pictures! Lots and lots of characters at Minnie and Friends, huh? Did you use the flash on your camera inside at Minnie's and inside at Off the Page? I am sure you didn't use it inside Aladdin, but I wondered. See, initially I assumed the only place we can't use the flash would be on the rides or inside of the shows/attractions, but now I am paranoid to even leave the flash on in the character meals or if I want to take a photo of something in a shop. The flash on my camera seems very bright, but I tried snapping some indoor stuff without it and the pictures were too dark for my liking. I just don't want anyone to kill me if whip out the flash at Goofy's - I used to use a 35 mm camera with a flash there, but this Canon digital flash seems brighter than that one was.

    I am glad Jesus was able to get in some pictures. I know what you mean about being in a bad spot at a table and not being able to get out easily. That is not good when it comes to getting character pictures and second helpings of food!

    Cinderella wouldn't be my favorite Princess either. I am not a big Princesses person, BUT I would have to say I like Ariel (yay for the girls with the pasty white skin:lmao::lmao::lmao:), I like Jasmine for her spunky and sassy attitude, and I like Belle for her independent personality and her love of books (not in that order)! Cinerella, Aurora and Snow White - eh - take 'em or leave 'em. We hardly ever see Mulan anywhere.

    Great update! You guys always get some cute interactions with the characters at breakfast. I also love how the plaza inn looks, so fancy schmancy! At least in pictures!

    I'm so excited to see Aladdin. Looks like you guys had pretty good seats for regular seeing people. I'm always so paranoid - I bring an extra set of contacts and my glasses on trips.

    Hola!!!! Now there's more pics for you to enjoy!!! :dance3::dance3:

    We saw a ton of characters. We were there for a long time. Probably the entire 90 minutes you're allowed. I had my camera on 'auto' during Minnie's. That's why some photos are dark and others are light. The flash went on sometimes and not other times. A lot of people had the flash on their cameras in there. Some of my pictures would have came out better if they all had flash on. I didn't have it on during Aladdin. They say like 15 times before the show not to use flash, so I made sure I had my flash off. There was enough light on stage that the pictures came out fine. I think you'll be okay with your super bright flash at Goofy's! It's not a ride!

    I have pasty white skin, :rotfl:. Ariel's my third favorite, then Jasmine. Aurora is number 2. Mulan I really like and Pocahontas. Cinderella bores me. :laughing:

    Plaza Inn was very fancy. I loved it. It was so pink inside. I love pink!! :cutie:

    That's how I am. I wear contacts and I am blind without them or glasses. So I always carry an extra set of contacts when we're on vacation. And my glasses. He hardly wears contacts and he didn't bring extras. Doh. :headache:

    Courtney, love the pictures I could see......most of the pics from Day 3 on the previous page are little squares with an "x" in them.....is that from my computer being stupid or did they not upload??

    I :lovestruc LOVED :lovestruc the picture of Tigger trying on the sunglasses!!!!!

    You two make the cutest couple!!!!!!!

    I would do (and even like) Splash Mtn if there was a way to do it & not get soaked. I rode it once & was drenched after the first little drop & every corner I got even wetter, by the time we were done I was hating life.....miserable. Haven't been on it since!

    You got some great shots from Aladdin.....we still haven't been able to get good pics of this show (or the fireworks & fantasmic)...I don't think we have the right kind of camera to capture the darker images.

    Can't wait to see more!

    I used to think, "Oh there is no way we would be at a character meal for the full 90 minutes," but last time we ate at Goofy's, I checked the time and sure enough, it was 90 minutes! The time goes by fast! Of course, I have never seen anyone come out and make anyone leave the table, but that would be funny! I muust try Minnie and Friends one of these days - but I do hope to not get stuck in a seat like where Jesus was, because I HAVE to get up and get some character lovin!:lmao::lmao:

    I think I have you (and Ariel!) SO beat in the pasty white skin department, Courtney! I am one of those 'gets-a-hideous-crippling-sunburn-in-5-minutes' types of people (I think my ancestors were from Irish peasant stock, probably boiling cabbage and potatoes indoors all year long, who never saw the sun!!:lmao::lmao:).

    I agree - Cinderella is boring. Snow White - eh.....Although her skin is pasty too - more like porcelain! I forgot about Pocahontas - she was a feisty gal too!

    I am another one who is blind as a bat without my glasses. I have prescription sunglasses too, or else I would not see two feet in front of me outside! I never went the contact lens route because I hate things in my eye - I can never get used to it. I just put on the glasses and let everyone think I am a dork or a bookworm or a librarian or whatever! I don't care - I need to be able to SEE! When one pair of glasses broke last year, it was a disaster! I was frantic! I like to always have at least one extra pair with me on trips because I am a klutz and you never know what will happen!

    Hi!!! I'm glad my TR is keeping you from going crazy!!! :lmao: :goodvibes

    Oh no! I wonder why you can't see some of the pics? :confused3 I can see them on my computer... My computer at work does that sometimes too though, I can't see some pictures. I hope you can see them soon because they're really cute!! :goodvibes

    Tigger was so funny. He kept kissing my hand and Jesus was like "Hey hey!" And Tigger kept doing it and hugging me, :rotfl: it was sooo funny.

    Aww, thank you! :lovestruc

    I love Splash, it's really one of my favorite rides, but seriously, when you're drenched, it makes it SO hard to enjoy the ride. Or because you're soooo worried about getting wet, you can't have fun!!!

    My camera is like that with indoor rides. I don't know what's going on, but I can't get good pics. I think it was just because so much lighting on stage helped with the pictures.

    I'm glad you're enjoying it, Laurie!! :thumbsup2 :hug:

    I've never seen anyone come to a table and tell people to leave either. At Minnie's there are no waiters or waitresses like there is at Goofy's and Lilo and Stitch's, so I don't think there really is anyone paying much attention. I'm sure if you're there 2 hours or something someone is bound to notice.

    I was just thinking I need to start tanning. My skin isn't real pretty white, it's more like a yellow-ish and it's weird. I think I look better with a tan though.

    I keep telling Jesus to get prescription sunglasses. He needs them. That boy loves his sunglasses and he can't see unless he wears contacts. But he has a hard time with contacts because he's like you, where he doesn't like touching his eyes. With me, I can put my contacts in without looking in the mirror. :rotfl: I wear my glasses at night when I take my contacts out, but I usually have them about 12 hours a day.

    "We normally bypass this, but it's really fun and quite terrifying. It seriously feels like you're going to fly off the track. I felt bad for the people sitting in front of us because I kept screaming."

    Except for the "really fun" part, I agree. Finally went on it. Hated it. Every single moment of it.

    Funny stuff about finding yourself in IASW...we have an eternal grumpiness about the Korean dolls...first off, in the main ride, the children are dressed in *wedding* costumes. Which is weird. And then in the ending scene where they're all in white, they are GONE. Japanese doll with an obi? check. Chinese dolls spinning plates? Check. Thai dolls? Check. Even another Japanese doll if memory serves? Check. Korean dolls? Nope, they've left the building. They used to be there, though...however, they were behind a huge ice dragon. Guess they just left b/c they were tired of being hidden? :rotfl:

    Yoo hoo! Courtney! Don't we have more Trip Report to get to, missy? Hmmm? You can't let things like work and Jesus and life get in the way of your TR!!:lmao::lmao::rotfl::rotfl: The fans are waiting!:laughing:

    It is pretty scary. I actually think the only fun part is after you get off the ride and you realize you're still alive and not on the floor! :eek:

    That is crazy about on IASW. Well crazy about the little Korean kids wearing wedding costumes. And that they're gone in the finale room!! Where did they put them? I don't even know if the only 1 little Filipina girl is still there after the refurb. I forgot to look. :confused3

    :rotfl: :rotfl: Oh Sherry I just love you!!! I'm working on my TR right now!! :woohoo:

    The show was fantastic. We always enjoy seeing it. After that we went back to DL.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The Astro Orbitor was taken apart.

    [​IMG]

    We were hungry, so went to Tomorrowland Terrace to get some food. I ordered the grilled veggie sandwich and Jesus had a spicy chicken sandwhich. He really liked his and mine was really really good. I ate the whole thing.

    [​IMG]

    While we were there, Jedi Training Academy was starting, so we watched it. I was having a grand time. I love Star Wars and this was just too much fun for me.

    I love LOVE Storm Troopers.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Darth Vader was just HUGE.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This Jedi helper girl was soo awesome. She was so into her character.

    [​IMG]

    They were going to shoot the little girl because they felt the force was strong with her. She kicked Darth Vader's butt.

    [​IMG]

    Darth Maul was terrifying. Just a scary guy.

    [​IMG]

    This poor little boy had his mouth open like that for a good 2 minutes until Darth Maul reached his hand out to him and he shook it.

    [​IMG]

    After the show was over, the Storm Troopers were walking to backstage....

    [​IMG]

    And they stopped because the little girl had a Yoda backpack.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was really funny.

    [​IMG]

    After that we stopped in the Star Trader store. And I found this awesome little guy.

    [​IMG]

    I decided to wait until the next day to get him with my Fun Card. I needed to buy that!

    After that we walked back to Main Street and parked it on a bench in front of the train station. We were getting tired. Sometime at this point we thought about getting popcorn or if we should get real food. My Mom called and I talked to her. And then the flag retreat ceremony started. We never really sat down and watched it. It was pretty neat.

    On our way down Main Street I saw these balloons. I love balloons like this.

    [​IMG]

    Disneyland Band.

    [​IMG]

    I loooove the Dapper Dans.

    [​IMG]

    We were sitting for quite awhile. I'm confused with my pictures. After that we walked to DCA, but I only have 2 pictures in DCA, so I'm guessing we didn't do much there and came back to DL.

    Train conductors watching from up ahead!

    [​IMG]

    I guess we walked to Paradise Pier.

    [​IMG]

    And rode the Maliboomer!

    [​IMG]

    By the time on my pictures, when the Maliboomer one was taken, DCA was almost about to close. I guess we decided to go back to DL and get the best dessert everrrr....

    Ice cream! We got it at the Cone Shop over by the lockers because Gibson Girl had a super long line like always. I don't remember what kind of ice cream we got, but it was good and messy!!

    [​IMG]

    After our ice cream we decided to go get a cupcake and go back to the hotel. This whole trip I was talking about how much I wanted a red velvet cupcake. So my darling Jesus bought me one. We got it at Marceline's in DTD. I kept that little Happy Birthday thing too.

    [​IMG]

    We were thinking how delicious red velvet is with ice cream so we walked across to Hagen Daas to get some vanilla ice cream. We drove back to the hotel and ordered room service. The food from the hotel was really good. Jesus ordered a gyro and I got fried calamari. Yum. After dinner we fell asleep!

    Next up, our last day and MY birthday!! Woohoooo!

    Woo hoo!:woohoo: More Trip Report!!!

    I have never gone in the Cone Shop, but I love ice cream so I may have to stop in there......

    The last time I was in Marceline's (and I love their sign and the logo on their bags, by the way - with the Hidden Mickey!) to get my gingerbread men with ears cookies, I noticed those big honkin' cupcakes! I didn't get one, but they looked big. Now, it seems like cupcakes at DLR don't get a really good reputation - either they are dry or too sweet or not sweet enough or there is too much frosting or not enough - did you like yours?

    Molly had said before that Darth Maul was very scary in person, and looking at your photos I can see what she meant! Yikes! He would scare ME! I LOVE that little mini Storm Trooper stuffed dude that you had in your sights. So cute! And I have seen those Yoda backpacks at DLR before and I LOVE them because Yoda is almost real Yoda-size! It literally looks like someone is carrying around Yoda on their backs! Do they still sell the stuffed Ewoks in that store in TL, or are those long gone! I loooooove me some Ewoks!

    The line for the Cone Shop wasn't very long. There was only one CM working, I don't know if that's regular, but he was pretty quick. There was just one family in front of us.

    The cupcake was really good, and big. Jesus and I didn't even finish it and I put it in the fridge and took it home the next day. It wasn't too dry for me. It was yummy!

    Darth Maul was scary. I was trying to figure out those horns on his head! They have Chewbaca backpacks too. They're cute!! I like how it looks like they're just sitting on your back getting a piggy back ride!! I think they still have the little Ewoks. I bought Jesus one on our Grad Night (but that was 2005!!), he has it in his room. I think I may ask for it so I can put it next to my Storm Trooper and they can be friends! :rotfl: They have this adorable Ewok shirt I saw at the Star Trader store and the Vault 28 in DTD or whatever it's called. And it has an Ewok on it and it says "Save the Trees". It's soooo cute. I was thinking of getting it.

    Oooh! Save the Trees! I have to see that shirt because that sounds too adorable! I have my old Ewok (bought waaaaay back in the early '90s, I think) sitting next to my Gizmo from "Gremlins" (love him), a California Raisin, a Smurf and Snuggle Bear (the annoying fabric softener bear), and they have all managed to cohabitate quite nicely - so I think your Ewok and the Storm Trooper should get along well! And I can't remember if you bought that Little Green Alien dude that you found in TL a while back - the one that moves and makes noise. If you did, he can sit right up there with the Trooper and the Ewok! Yes, I am a HUGE dork!:lmao::lmao:
