    You and Brooklynn would get along just dandy! She has seen Little Mermaid about a thousand times. Considering she's not even three yet, that could be a record. She is the cutest thing singing along with all of the songs.

    I always think about poor Triton, too. He loved his little girl so much that he gave her up for what he knew she wanted. :love:

    Alone time resting in the room with some good eats sounds good. :thumbsup2

    Seeing the updated bedspread made me wish Pop was ready to update. Music and Sports seem so clean and bright now in comparison. I guess Movies will be next, though, and then they'll start on Pop. Who knows?

    Keep those pictures coming! It's getting me more and more ready to go!

    Great solo time! I'm glad you got into your solo groove and we able to enjoy yourself before the downpour.

    I can imagine you eating that cheesecake and it gave me a laugh. :laughing:

    Nice update. I never noticed the sign that said that the Jolly Holiday dress at One Man's Dream was a replica! I thought it was the real thing. Now I feel a little crushed.

    Sounds like a fun day. Too bad it had to end with rain. Looking forward to another fantastic day.

    Ooo I'm sorry about the rain but it seems like you had a nice night and it was probably good for you feet too! I hope you don't have feet problems on your next trip. I love the Little Mermaid Show, it was my absolute favorite movie when I was little too. I used to watch it all the time!! I love the Muppet Show too, I used to watch the Muppet Show on tv when I was younger!!

    I used to watch the Muppet Babies! We LOVED that show. You never did get to see the Mom did you? Just her legs and her nifty tights.

    That is a really neat factoid about Mary Poppins and the costume designer. I had no idea! I think he did a GREAT job. :goodvibes

    Another awesome bit of trivia! Wow! I wish they wouldn't have destroyed it. Very clever.


    LL, sounds like you had a GREAT evening being solo! All the way from enjoying to DHS to "me time" in the hotel. :thumbsup2 I hope your feet start to feel much better for when your Mom arrives...

    Man how I adore Disney trivia and your update was full of it!!!! Thanks for sharing!!!!

    I'm so glad you were able to do a lot of exploring and just enjoy DHS before the rains came. Even better you were able to just have some time to relax and rest those poor feet of yours!!

    I cannot wait for our DHS day...the 4 of us are going to have a blast hitting up certain places and areas and I think One Man's Dream should be one of them!!!!!

    Great update LL!

    Great updates LL! I'm glad you had a good time at DHS both with Jen and by yourself. I know the rain might be a bummer but it forced you to give your feet just what they need. :thumbsup2 Sounds like a relaxing evening at your resort-something I need to do more of!!

    I really need to do One Man's Dream. I think I did it 15 years ago but not since then-if it was even open then. As you saw from the sign, not much was there back then!

    Sigh...I just love One Man's Dream-I'm a big fan of all that early Disney history/trivia...sigh

    I'm starting DS out early reading him a kid's bio of Disney-he was really so visionary and I particularly love his early short cartoons from the 30s and of course Snow White-beautiful...:cloud9: and the 50s-Peter Pan and Sleeping Beauty and Alice of course...

    I was really interested in your report of the Hollywood Brown Derby-sounds great-I enjoyed living vicariously through your experience-I started having a meal there once...but dd started to feel ill so I took her outside and let DH & DS finish...:confused3...I'll have to get back there some day...

    (I got sick on a different trip and missed my meal at Jiko...:confused3-perhaps my family is cursed...and it's never the Counter Service we miss-its the Table Service that I was really looking forward to...(DS got sick when we were in Disneyland and we missed Napa Rose at the Grand Californian)-ok... so we've had three strikes-NO MORE ALLOWED-As God as my witness-it will never happen again...:headache:

    I love that your having a good time solo and can't wait till your mom shows up...:surfweb:

    (I am sorry about your feet and hope they feel better-that can be such a miserable feeling...:sad1:)

    Great updates :thumbsup2. It looks like you had a great meal at Hollywood Brown Derby. That is one I have not tried yet but maybe next May when my DH & I go for our anniv trip. Sounds like you did the right thing by going back to the resort & resting your feet.

    I think you made GREAT use of your solo time that day!!! I think it was a really good idea to get out of that rain and to give your feet some much needed rest!!! I hope it really helped ease their pain! Can't wait to see what is in store for the next day!

    Your afternoon sounds lovely. HS was a good choice to start off your solo adventure. I actually just saw Spectromagic for the first time on our last trip. I loved it! :love: The music and all the lights were just wonderful! I made sure we went back so I could see it again before we left. I am looking forward to your pictures.

    That is awesome! I had heard that there was a hidden Mickey but was never able to find a map that showed it. Thanks for sharing!

    I love the pics from MGM (it will always be MGM to me). I went there for the first time in 1992 and it was my favorite immediately. There weren't alot of rides/attractions, but what they had took longer to see. I remember the Backlot tour took a few hours I think. It started with the tram tour right next door to the Animation area, and then it eventually brought you up to where the Backlot area is now. You got off the tram, had the chance to use the restrooms (shop the Roger Rabbit themed gift shop), and then you started at the water special effects for the rest of the tour. It was very cool. You actually walked through all the buildings where Toy Story Mania/One Man's Dream ect. is now. I remember they used to do the bee scene from Honey I Shrunk the Kids and they'd show you a Bette Midler film and show how they filmed it. You'd eventually end up back where you started. The Animation tour used to be alot longer and more fun too. Back when they had animators working on real films there.

    I miss the old park. I like it now, but it's not the same for me anymore. Of course I feel the same way about Epcot too. :rotfl:

    Glad you got to have a nice restful night.

    Thanks for another great update! One Man's Dream is such a wonderful exhibit! I stumbled upon it in 2008 - I really had not known that it was there and enjoyed it soo much! I hope they will keep the MGM exhibit around for a while, I would like to see it in January.

    I definitely share your love of The Little Mermaid!!! I was only 4 y/o I think when the movie came out, and I'm pretty sure my Mom said she took me twice to see it in the theatre :eek: I STILL CRY AT THE END OF THE MOVIE!!! Actually I get teary eyed throughout the movie, as it brings back a lot of childhood memories. I'd like to read the Haans Christian Novel someday.
    Too bad about the rain- but I always say a "night in" at Disney is better than a night out in regular life! :rotfl:
    Can't wait to hear all about your next day at MK :goodvibes

    I'm here, and I'm caught up.

    I feel so sorry for you with your feet. Oh my goodness. There is nothing worse than hurting feet when you're at a place where you walk so much! :confused3 I've had experiences like that, but I don't think they were quite so painful.

    What a wonderful time you and Jen had together! I love reading about it! :goodvibes

    That is the coolest! Thanks for pointing that out Heidi! :goodvibes

    They are very very yummy. I can't wait to eat them again. :laughing:

    You really do!

    I really adore TSM! I really want to get there at rope drop so I can walk through the line without waiting for hours. I want to see all of the details.

    I don't think I've ever seen the net full of jello. Hmm. I wonder if I just didn't realize what it is.

    I really do think the rain made my blisters worse. :headache:

    Yes I did give them a lot of rest which was very nice.

    I bet Brooklynn is the cutest little thing ever watching Ariel and the gang. :cutie: It would be nice for Pop to be updated, I am sure they have it scheduled for soon.


    Hehehe, yes it was quite the picture. I contemplated going back for a fork or spoon but then I thought of the rain and my feet and I just went with it. :rotfl:

    I thought so too. It was exciting to think it was the original! Sigh. Oh well.

    I did have a nice night, sometimes it's nice just to relax!
