    Loved the intermission so far!!! Your DL weekend looked to be so much fun. I love Space Mtn in DL!! Not so much at WDW. However, Tower of Terror is much better at DHS.

    We had those guest anywhere/anytime FPs in 2011. They are so great!!! And I loved the option of entering California Adventure early through the hotel.

    Your dinner sounded good. And your breakfast looked good, too! Happy Birthday again to Em!! Fun morning at DL. So nice to be able to head over to the parks for the weekend when you feel a little need for Disney. We have friends that lived in LaHabra and we would stay with them and spend time at the parks. They moved to Reno this past year, though. :sad1:

    Hi Brenda! I'm sorry I got behind, but I'm all caught up now!!
    That suite is just absolutely breathtaking. The bathroom may just be my favourite part -- I'm a tub person. When we build our house, my #1 priority was a special tub. But THAT tub?? Enough to make this tub lover swoon. Stars on the ceiling??? I wonder if I could make my bathroom do that... :rotfl:
    Love the pics of your group by the fireplace!
    How incredible that you guys got to tour the DS. I can't imagine ever being so lucky! Thanks for sharing your tour with us!

    Love the Disney's Grand Californian Hotel weekend intermission. I always love the DL segments, it really makes me want to go there. Your dinner at Napa Rose looks lovely! And what a view from your room!

    What a great birthday!! I love everything, napa rose, the view from your room, Em's horse sweater... :) That cake looked delicious!

    I like your shots from Indiana jones! I miss Disneyland.

    Sounds relaxing to chill out on Route 66 and watch the lights go on. And that animation room...I could sit in there forever. One of my favorite places on disney property ever. If they wanted to bring a copy of anything over to wdw, I would certainly accept a room like that in the animation section of mgm/hollywood studios.

    Hey Brenda. :wave2:

    Y'all look like you had such a great time at DL. I'm sure it's not as thrilling as WDW, but still! :goodvibes

    I'm glad we got to talk that night, we talked right before you went and watched the lighting ceremony for the Carsland. ::yes::
    It was the highlight of my day. :lovestruc

    Y'all look beautiful as always, I love your cute little dress and sweater combo, so stinkin cute. And of course Em looked gorgeous in her dress, such a pretty dress on her. ::yes::

    And that cake! Did Michael get that for her or did the restaurant make them? I think I remember you telling me Michael may have gone to get it that day with all his other errands. ;) :laughing:

    Thank you for sharing Em's special day with us. :woohoo:

    I love the view from your room, it's so cool!

    Your meal looks and sounds wonderful, Em is a very lucky lady :goodvibes We're celebrating my eldest DD's 18th in WDW but unfortunately for her the actual day is our departure day so most of it will be spent travelling. The only good side is she can have her first legal drink courtesy of BA at 30 thousand feet :rotfl:

    Hi Brenda! We're back home now unfortunately, but we had a lovely time at the BC! On check in day, it was in the mid 80's so we did get some SAB time. The last couple days were cold and rainy, but we made the best of it of course. Talking Mickey made my 2 year old's week when he sang and danced the "hot dog song" with her. It brought tears to my eyes, it was so amazing. And now I'm sad because we don't have another trip planned... Good thing I can live vicariously through your reports!

    Em's birthday weekend looks great! You're so lucky to have a Disney park so close to you.

    OOOOKKKAAAYY!!!

    So....first off, I'm getting all caught up on the TR.

    NEXT......it's a bit away, but we're planning on a Disneyland trip next year! Just my parents and I and all the grandkids. I figured the one adult per child ratio will be good. But I'll be in your neck of the woods. :thumbsup2

    If someone told me I was seeing the Dream Suite, I would have leapt up and hugged him too!

    Good choice on your Dooney! I've agonized on Dooney's forever!

    Nice on having it included in your movie contract. I'll have to remember to have them include it in my next one. :lmao:

    The only thing we ever won during the Year of a Million Dreams was magic fast passes. Whomp whomp. My Mom really wanted another DVC contract. LOL.

    Just wow. I don't even have words for the suite. :faint: That is all. Haha.

    Yay, I'm glad you're doing a DL intermission!

    Em looked so pretty at her birthday dinner! The dress is so great.

    I can't wait to go back to Disneyland!!!!

    Thank you for sharing your tour of the dream suite! I'm amazed how many details you were able to capture - including the "botched" photo that shows the detail of the carpet. What a fantastic and magical place - I'm thrilled you and Em were able to experience it! :cloud9:

    Not sure if I missed it, but did you bring that cake with you to the restaurant? Looks delicious and pretty!

    Okay, i'm such a weirdo, but Em's hair on the Matterhorn...did she do that herself?! LOVE IT! Is that like a french braid? Need to learn how to do this if she did it herself!

    Hi Brenda,

    Now I am catching up on this trip report. Happy Belated Birthday to Emily. She is a very lucky girl to have so many wonderful family memories. I would love to stay at the Grand Californian. It must be really hard to get a reservation there. Em looked very pretty on her birthday. I love her crown and necklace. :)

    FWIW: Route 66 begins a few blocks from where I work in downtown Chicago and goes past our suburb. I know we are 2,000 miles away, but it somehow makes me feel connected whenever I see the Route 66 sign.

    Ha - just my luck. I had originally booked a trip from April 30th to May 6th, then I decided to change it to March because I didn't want to wait that long. I'm sorry I'll miss you again. :sad1: We went to WDW that same time period in 2011 and it is a great time to visit - low crowds and great weather.

    I loved your Dream Suite Tour. You were really lucky to get to see it. I did a little exploring when we were at MK in January, looking for the door to the suite and checking out the windows. Just knowing where that suite is makes the castle a little more interesting to look at. :goodvibes

    I so want to go to DLR! What a nice intermission, and it looks like such a lovely stay for Em's birthday. I've spent my past few birthdays at WDW, but I think when it comes time to renew our passes in April, we're going to go with the seasonal passes. Since my birthday's in July, it'll be a black out date :( Since my nephew is almost three though, my sister will have to buy him a pass too, and it's hard to justify the more expensive one, especially with all the changes still being implemented at Disney World and the future being so uncertain.

    Now that I'm finished with that tangent, loved Em's necklace at Napa Rose, so pretty. Looking forward to the second part of the mini-Disneyland TR :)

    - Juanita

    Yes, my best friend that I've never met but will in September, needs a time out in our -25 below windchill filled evenings. :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    I am loving your intermission of Em's birthday. I know I said it on FB, but she looks beautiful.

    It sounds like a great time thus far and can't wait to hear more.

    You do know that Mark and I are planning to come to Disneyland next year, don't you? We may need a tour guide as we have never been.

    Em looks just lovely in her birthday pictures! What a fun way to celebrate.

    Nice view from your room! Love it!

    And, of course, I am enjoying all the pictures from the park because its a completely new experience for me. I can't wait to see it for myself - next year! :thumbsup2

    Grand Californian looks AWESOME.
