Hey mouse waiters! Thought I would post a picture of my 2 girls from today's kids races. 2 years ago at this race, I posted pictures of them together. A week later was when my husband, their sweet daddy died in a car accident. After that, with the help of @sweet_irish_cream, you all rallied together and sent us wonderful gifts and donations. Thank you all for your continued support.

Your girls are still beautiful.  I hope you have more joy and happiness in your lives with each passing day. 😘 - MeridaFan  4244.2 #39 10:00PM

NEWS! #news They just opened up these coke/soda fountains across from smokejumpers, next to the rambler old 50s car! It is one of those 7,000+ choice machines, with the different flavor shots and all the different types of soda!!! They said they just opened it up 3 hours ago!

I need some help.... I'm in search of a new antenna ball, and was wondering if anyone has ever seen an Indiana jones hat at the parks? I saw darth vader last week, but I want to know all my options before I choose. Haha. So tell me what you have seen out there lately. I want to make sure I'm not missing any. Thanks!!!

There is a new topper that is 60th Anniversary. It's a Mickey glove (hand) that is all sparkly. This info from memory, saw it about 2 weeks ago. - jacdanfan  13084.6 #6 10:35AM

Ok all! If you are missing your dole whips, and you can't make it to the parks, Yogurtland has a pretty good substitute right now! It's their special "pineapple sorbet"! Obviously it's not the real thing, but it's still really tasty!

In Huntington Beach there is a location that simple calls it "Dole Whip" and it tastes the same. - dizneedude  1806.4 #102 11:05PM

Starting to be unveiled! Can't wait for the 60th celebration!

Ok! I'm on it! Haha. I'm back in toon town Cuz I was racing back to gadgets go coaster with my 3 yr old. Haha. I don't get here early in the morning that often. I couldn't see anything different, but I'll go back later and check it out. :) my guess is that they put like tons of embedded crystal lights or something for it to look like shining diamonds. Maybe? Haha.  - sunshinegates  747.0 #280 11:11AM
My guess still is that they just did a nice thorough repainting job. And they will decorate later. We'll see. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.9 #35 11:22AM
I would think they could do the decor overnight. Like the Christmas theming. And from the Artist renderings, it doesn't even look like as much decor as Christmas time.  - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.9 #35 1:36PM

Ok, who can tell me why DCA said it closed at 6 tonight, but stayed open till 8 for those in the park?? Awesome surprise, but just wondering.

Okay so California adventure was supposed to close at six tonight. So I'm in the park at like 6 o'clock when it supposed to be closing, and it's totally still open. Apparently there was supposed to be a private party tonight but the event canceled and so if you are inside the park already, you can stay in the park till eight but they aren't letting people in the park if you're not if you were in here by 6! so it's totally empty we totally walked in and saw Anna and Elsa With no line!! I'm totally cold but I don't want to leave because there's nobody here.  - sunshinegates  747.0 #280 7:12PM

Oh! And I saw Sean Austin minutes before our half marathon race! He was all by himself actually, and waiting for a rundisney employee to bring him his bib. I went and talked to him and asked if he was going to be at Star Wars next week. I already knew his answer would be yes, but a good conversation starter. πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ anyways, he said "you bet!"
