Good afternoon, all! I missed the Jolly Holiday sticker night, as I've been on the east coast this week, and it got way too late for me. I would love to trade any of my current stickers for one of the penquins from last night. Please DM me of which sticker you would like! Thanks so much!

I have an extra penguin, I'll send it over! No trade needed 😊 - PracticallyPerfectKaila  33.8 #5396 10:53AM

Buena Vista Street trolley fun fact - the numbers 717 and 623 are two important Disney days. I imagine you know the 717, but can you guess the 623? Let's show those stickers!

Tour #7: And here is the conclusion of my tour experience. The Tour came full circle, ending as Buena Vista Street does, at the majestic Carthay Circle Theatre. We got to listen to Walt talk about the night of the December 21,1937, Snow White premiere & got a feel for just how important and special that night was for him & those attending. One of those teary eye moments! Afterwards, our guide  More...

Thank you for the great review, looking forward to doing this tour. - jacdanfan  9585.3 #3 5:43AM

Fun fact - John once took his large family on a Route 66 road trip in an RV where he got lots of ideas and inspiration for the wonders of Carsland! Can you imagine a road trip with five kids?!

Tour #5: After going in the 1901 lounge, the tour went through the other parts of DCA. We started in Condor Flats (named for the birds that fly near Edwards Air Force base) through Grizzly Peak to Paradise Pier. Did you know the elevation of Grizzy Peak, 1401 feet, is a nod to the address of a certain animation studio? Along the way, we got to experience 3 attractions - the plaid escorted way!  More...

Sorry, to be more clear. I was asking about when you said "its kinda like the shadow of figures on that one window in the load of space on Star tours."  I was wondering where on there is the window. - keepmovingforward  210.6 #1823 5:22AM
It's in the load area with all the luggage & old droids.  Sorry! - poppinspenguin  249.5 #1311 4:11AM
Oh yeah - and notice that 1901 doesn't follow the address convention I mentioned in yesterday's post.  1901 is, of course, an homage to Walt's year of birth! - poppinspenguin  249.5 #1311 5:48AM
