    Thank you for reading and I hope you have a magical trip! You definitely have the planning down!

    Thank you for reading!!

    Hi Karin! It's been a while! Hope you are well. We definitely did a lot at DLR but I still feel that we could have done more. We didn't even make it into Mickey's Toon Town and I'm sure there were a bunch of rides we missed too. So looks like we'll have to make another trip out there too!
    See you on my TR!

    That looks like a great way to end your DLR vacation. I'll have to try that out when I go in August. You are lucky! I look forward to reading more in your other TRs.

    LOVED this trip report! It was fun to see that there was so much to do for more than just a couple of days (which is how long DH wants to Disneyland when we go next May-- I want longer haha) Can't wait to read about your first runDisney experience on your WDW TR!

    Thank you so much!! We had such an amazing time at DLR! There were lots to do and see and I still felt like we could have done more, if that is possible!
    Tell you DH that you will need more time, LOL!
    Our first run Disney experience was fun! We had a few bumps in the road, but overall, it was a great race! We're doing the Fall Feast 5k in November too! :)

    I don't think I ever got back to this TR to see this. Thank you for clarifying about the length. The model was probably tall. I'm about 5'5.5" and I would most likely wear a L (I'm a 12/14) so I will probably give those a try. And I am all about spending less money, so I am with you on that aspect of it. I "saved them for later" in my Amazon cart. I do like the prints but I will need to see which ones would match my Disney tanks! :)

    Now, on to finish reading this report.

    That is a cool shirt!

    I just want to say that I love your necklace! Where did you get it?

    Love that movie! Great girl power flick and Brad Pitt...um, yes.

    Haha. Too funny. I was looking at the DLR map last night - I was watching SeeYaReelSoon vlogs and they go to both WDW and DLR so I was watching one of their DLR ones last night, so my curiosity got the better of me, and I had to look up the map. So anyway, I saw that when you hover over Space Mtn, it lists Space Mtn, Hyperspace Mtn, and Ghost Galaxy!

    I love all those rides!

    Yep, I could go with either one and would probably prefer the Millennium Falcon! I want the Lego MF!

    AJ loves the WDW Pooh ride, and he really wants to try this one (we watch DL youtube videos a lot).

    Very nice!

    I noticed that! I tell you...EMH and rope drop is tip #1 (my previous TR title...lol). This year at WDW, we are taking advantage (no dad on this trip!).

    So I just wanted to go back to what I was saying about watching the DL videos on youtube. My youngest is obsessed with Cars so we watch RSR and Paint the Night over and over again. So there is no doubt that I have to get them to DLR in the near future. I told them that we have to wait a year or so though because Will has to tall enough for RSR when we go and he is only like 38" right now. But your report and those videos have gotten me so excited! We are planning to rent an RV and do a road trip but if that doesn't work, I might look into renting points for VGC! Bet that is expensive, though! I think we could get away with doing just 3 days at the parks though...so maybe only 2 nights of renting points.

    Anyway, onto reading the rest. I'm in a meeting where I'm just here to be a signature on a piece of paper, so that has allowed me to catch up this morning!

    I always prefer windows and natural light. Looks very nice!

    This both sounds and looks delicious!

    Like you, I am not a pea fan so because of that, this does not appeal to me (I enjoy some good beef and I like ravioli). But opposite of you, I have no problems with peas in fried rice! LOL

    She is serious about her characters!!

    I know I saw ITTBAB there...but I am not sure if the other rides were there when I went in 2002, but I don't think I rode those rides.

    My boys would love this area! And we just re-watched Bug's Life a couple of weekends ago!

    That is definitely a pro for DLR!

    Oh my...it is super popular with the overlay, huh?

    Basically I've heard it's because it has to be down so long. At DLR, the guests are mostly local, so a ride being down for awhile isn't a huge problem, and to have the overlays are more necessary bc of the repeat guests.

    So nice!

    HAHA...I love the Matterhorn. But it is probably a lot more rickety now than in 2002!

    I can't even take him seriously...whiny brat! LOL

    :rotfl2:

    That is awesome!

    Yum!

    That is a huge portion!

    Oh my. That looks so good. I usually don't run into things that are "too sweet" for me...lol, so I would totally chow down on this.

    I have definitely ridden this and enjoyed it. And I'm with you on Dinosaur. Just no interest at all.

    Boo!

    Wow, looks amazing!

    Boo hoo! Though not too much crying because we all know that you have had two WDW trips since then, with several more on the way. ;)

    This is extremely funny to me.

    Reminds me of Chef Mickeys but with, apparently, much better food!

    On our last WDW trip, I noticed at SSR the gift shop was so tiny and kind of yucky but when we stopped at AoA, it was like a mini World of Disney! Not saying that DL Hotel is a value by any means, but in WDW it seems like the deluxes have tiny gift shops for some reason!

    Oh wow.

    Yay! I finished...finally! I truly enjoyed the report, even though it took me forever to finish, and for the second TR in a row, I am so behind that I am commenting after the report is done. What a faux pas. But it is very hard to read your reports and NOT comment. There are several I can read and refrain from commenting but yours, along with a few others, I am just compelled to do so! And while it may be annoying because it's after you are done and finished, it truly is meant as a compliment...lol.

    Looking forward to reading about your most recent trip!

    In my never ending quest to catch up, I finally finished reading this report! :thumbsup2 Loved it, as usual - your reports are always fun to follow! :goodvibes

    I have to be careful of reading too many Disneyland reports, though - I REALLY want to go back now that Izzy's over 40", but we can't work it into our travel plans/budget at this point unless we cancel some other trip. :sad2: So much fun, though, I just love it and enjoyed hearing about your adventures.

    Thanks for a great report! If you could only do one, would you recommend WOC dessert party or the Storytellers Café Character Breakfast. We are going for just a super quick trip and really can only fit in one.

    Well, I'm not Chunkymonkey but we did both in March. I would totally recommend WOC dessert party. Food aside, WOC was awesome. The kids get a drink in a giant light up cup, the adults get a bit of alcohol, sweets for everyone and a great show. Not that we didn't enjoy Storytellers, but WOC is so much more.

    I hope this doesn’t sound weird, but I’m going on a mother and daughter trip to Disneyland for the very first time this December and don’t know much about the California parks just yet, so I enjoyed reading your TR! Now I have a better sense of what to expect, even if it’s about two years after you posted it... thank you!
