Still getting caught up, but your family is adorable! Glad you guys had a fun time.
Welcome to the report! Hope you are enjoying it so farStill getting caught up, but your family is adorable! Glad you guys had a fun time.
It did hurt a little. DD15 got the worst of it and needed tylenol to sleep that night. It healed up pretty quickly though. I think the kids, especially the younger ones, would say whatever it was we were doing most recently. The older two I think were just a bit done with the parks by that point, and wanting to be left alone. They can only take so much family time instead of being with friends.Sounds like a great beach day! That sunburn looked really painful. That is very interesting about everyone saying the beach, and why they said the beach.
Me too! Currently fighting the after park blues, but doing the trip report has helped! For the first time since 2010 I don't have a trip I am actively planning with firm timeframe in mind. I have 3 that are wishlists though!I'm getting sad that the park days are coming to a close.
I do too! We also have some video of the interaction, and it is even better - she's very shy at first, and Tiana just welcomes her and makes her feel special.I'll admit I got a little teary-eyed seeing the picture of your DD with Tiana. So sweet!
I love the theming, but kind of wish there were some more signs!After three visits to Galaxy's Edge, I still get lost all the time.
It was so magical, really special moments. Pretty much all CMs seemed into the magic this trip and it really makes the experience and really is the Disney differenceOMG, I got teary eyed too for your daughter’s moment w/ Tiana. As a former CM, that’s what Disneyland is all about to me. Magical moments, especially for kids. Love it!
I definitely recommend trying it, especially the Mon Cala Swirl, if anyone in your group likes sour candies. It is worth trying at least once just to say you've done it!Such a cute interaction! I love that your daughter got to have the chance to meet Tiana! We've never tried the blue milk or green milk at GE, maybe we'll have to try it on our next trip.
These moments really made the trip for DH and I, and in some ways I think we found them even more special than the kids! It is incredible how a few kind words from someone admired can just make a moment memorable. Wouldn't trade it for anything!I love those magical moments had by DS10 and DD8! My DD (5 at the time) still talks about meeting Tiana back in January. Tiana called her "Sug" and she still laughs about that. (1st syllable of Sugar. )
There seems to be several PP photogs in the area - I wish we'd also done the photo op in front of Millenium Falcon but that didn't quite work out this trip.Love those magic shots with the X-wings and TIE fighters. We've never done any Photo Pass opps in Galaxy's Edge.
I always forget about Carnation Cafe and have never been there. Sounds like it is worth checking out!
It really was magical, and somehow, even though I don't know how or when, I know we'll all be back there again!Sounds like you had some great final moments with the 4 kids! It's so hard to say that final goodbye as you walk out.
She slept through the entire night, and had a surprise the next morning!I am wondering if DD5 woke up and was surprised/sad that she was no longer at Disneyland!
Thank you! I'm glad it was entertaining and not too wordy - I tend to write a lot.Such a fun trip report! You are a great writer and I feel like I'm right there experiencing things along with you!
It really is great - I'd recommend requesting an inside table if you are looking for a cool break, or an outside table if you are wanting to people watch. Either way, it seems pretty great - at least for lunch! No idea if breakfast and dinner are as great, but I hope to try next trip.We may have to try Carnation Cafe. That is probably the only restaurant we have yet to try, at least in Disneyland.
The ironic thing is, this was a dry heat for us. We came in from Dallas, which is much more humid than SoCal. It was interesting to me how the different people handled the head differently. DH says it wasn't so much the heat as just being kind of done with the whole theme park thing. Makes me wonder if he'd be up for a WDW vacation, which imo involves even more time in parks and dealing with transportation. I think he might like that better though because I wouldn't be pushing for early starts, and instead focus on late nights.I totally understand getting worn down by the heat. I can handle dry heat, but once humidity gets involved I start feeling miserable. Glad you were able to push through and still have a great time!
