    I feel the same way about the Sorcerer's Hat! There's nothing wrong with it by itself, but it would be so much better in another location. Blocking the view of the Chinese Theatre detracts from the authenticity of Hollywood Boulevard (one of the best-themed parts of DHS, IMO). It's interesting to me that DHS at one point had two special icons (the Earful Tower and the Chinese Theatre), and both of them have gotten lost in the shuffle. :sad2:

    It's nice to see a positive review of ABC Commissary. I've never been there, but it's one of the most panned establishments in WDW and I always wonder why. That burger definitely looks up to par with the other CS burgers on-property (maybe even better due to the shrimp :thumbsup2).

    Have a great frump reunion! I'm so excited to see your and Jess's pics on Instagram. :goodvibes

    I completely agree! It would be great if they moved it. It's just so sad.

    I know! It gets some really bad reviews, but I honestly do not understand why. Our burger was quite good! The fried shrimp was a nice bonus. :thumbsup2

    Thank you! There will be plenty! :wizard:

    I'm going to avoid the controversial topic of the Disney icon (yay hat!) and refrain from interjecting my personal opinon (love the hat) and just comment on your wonderful update (don't ditch the hat or move it.) :lmao:

    That is a great photo of your family. I'm sure your mom was thrilled to have that. (I can't get away from the mom thing. I try really! ;))

    ABC Commissary - never tried it but I'm open to a good burger. Do they offer those without the fried shrimp? I'm a shrimp lover but I just don't think a bottom feeder needs to be served with my beef! :) But I will totally take your word for it that this was a great lunch!

    ENJOY YOUR TRIP!!! ::yes:::banana:

    I guess at this point I've gotten used to it so it's okay. :)

    Thank you! Hahaha it's totally okay. Embrace the mom thing!

    Yes they do! Definitely a great place if you're looking for some A/C and a good Disney burger. :thumbsup2

    THANK YOU!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!! :banana::banana::banana:

    Thanks for the update. I always stop in front of the Mary Poppins horse and just stare for a minute. I admire Julie Andrews so much.

    Enjoy your trip! :goodvibes

    FRIED SHRIMP ON A BURGER?! Holy crap. I need to try that.

    The Writer’s Stop! UGH PERFECTION. I just want to sit in there for a while and read a book. That’s all. And eat some yummy food OF COURSE.

    The real DHS icon = :thumbsup2

    P.S. Hope you are having a magical time in WDW right now!!! pixiedust:

    I hope you're having a great time in WDW right now! Also, it just occurred to me that you're going to be in DL really soon as well! I just started a DL dining review (with lots of bonus pics!) if you're interested when you get back. :goodvibes

    All caught up. First I have to say that you always take the most amazing pictures of the castle. The angles are great and the colors are so vibrant. Do you do a lot of editing or do you have an amazing camera? (or you can just say you are a fabulous photographer. ;) )

    We eat at the ABC Commissary a lot because we always seem to find ourselves in that area when we get hungry. I wouldn't say it's the best CS ever, but it's not bad at all. I get the Chicken Blue sandwich and it is consistently good.

    I've never been to the Writer's Stop, but apparently it has amazing treats!

    Hope you are having a wonderful trip w/ your friends! I was looking at your tickers and noticed that we will be at Disneyland at the same time. AND we are going to Vegas first too! It would be fun to run into you somewhere. I think we will be at Disneyland on June 24 - 26.

    It was very good!

    I love it so much in there.

    Teheheh :thumbsup2

    I had a great time!​


    I had so much fun, thank you! Ah yes I definitely want to check that out!​


    Yay! Thanks for joining in! Thanks! I had a lot of fun! I'm glad you're enjoying it!​


    Thank you very much! Anything you've seen up till now is actually from my Sony point-and-shoot, but I recently got a DSLR so starting from the trip I just got back from, the pictures will be much better! Thank you! I do use iPhoto, but mainly just for red-eye and cropping.

    I would agree. Once you find a consistent item, it becomes a great go-to place!

    It definitely does! I love it there!

    Thanks! I will be in Disneyland on those dates too! Feel free to say hello if you see me!​

    How did I not know that you had a new TR going!?
    Ontario section on LC!! Woot woot! Being from Ontario myself I always love to hear about how people were seated in our lovely trillium section.

    That Jafar wanted poster pin is the last one I need to complete that set! How jealous am I that you found it. I'm keeping my fingers crosse that I find it during my trip this August.
