We had the most magical time on our visit this past week and weekend! It was a last minute trip, thanks to my husband's generosity. I fulfilled so many bucket list items, and I will try to remember them all here. First off, I was lucky enough to find a 58th birthday Limited Edition pin. The CM who sold it to me said it was the very last one in the parks. Not sure if that is true or not, but it was definitely the last in his shop! I finally was able to take my girls into the Animation Academy in DCA, only to discover my own love of drawing! I had so much fun! I will definitely be going back on future visits! I got to enjoy a basket of pommes frites and an order of Mickey beignets out on the patio of Cafe Orleans, where we did some people watching. My mini and i found the four leaf clover in Bugsland. We also got to enjoy Mickey and the Magical Map in the Fantasyland Theatre. That was an awesome show, and I am so glad we got to see it! I also met some awesome MWers on this trip, including RadiatorSprings4ever and her two adorable boys; MrsSchnooks and her husband; MissAriel33 and FarelMickey, along with breathe_in_the_happiness And theRICEsStoryBookRomance. I also was able to meet both SPandEVlover and her mom IHEARTSIMBA52 before we left the parks. I am happy to report that all MWers I met were awesome! After a fun and funny ride through the jungle with CMJoshua, I am happy to say that i finally met CMBaloo for the first time. I was able to dazzle my family by bypassing an hour-long line at Nemo and experience the ride in the Observation Room. They all thought that was cool! I got to try the cheeseburger pie at Princess Fantasy Faire. 😂 Had my first Carsland root beer float. Picked up some awesome souvenirs, including my new favorite purse. I know I'm forgetting something, and we did not complete our bucket list, which is just fine because now we have an excuse to come back again! (Not that I needed one). We also enjoyed four nights at the HoJo on Harbor for the very first time. I must say that for people who have stayed at both the DL hotel and the Grand exclusively on our trips for the past several years, the HoJo met all the criteria we look for in a hotel stay, including comfortable bed and pillows, a/c that keeps us properly cooled, shower head that is high enough and water temp that stays steady while in the shower! Our room was very spacious, as well. The walk to the park was not any farther than from the DL hotel, either. I would definitely recommend this hotel without hesitation, and we will be staying here again! So many bonuses on this trip that we would never have known about if it weren't for MW! So, a big thank you to Admin and MrsPrinceCharming for making it all possible!

July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month. - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM
Unforecast for Tuesday July 29th, there appears to be a bit of Christmas in July coming to LaBrea about 8 pm with lots of snow ( I wish) to cool us down. But lots of cool drinks and desserts if UTDisneyfamily cannot bring the cold air with them! Hope to see you all there!!! - secretagentangel Jul 28, 2014 5:49PM
Trying to post the forecast right now but not letting me post up there. I stopped by for an hour before church to get a sandwich. The beauty of having an AP!!!very hot to walk around so people are already waiting for the parade so AnyOne on the way here, pack your patience and find the a seat in the shade, read Mousewait and stay cool! Yay!!! I think this is working!!! - secretagentangel Jul 27, 2014 6:02PM

So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA. - BaseballMickey_CM Jun 28, 2014 11:24PM
