Star Wars photos from the past couple of years.
Gary and Nancy are the best! I love everything! These are my first ever Disney dollars, believe it or not! Lucky is unbelievably cute, too! Thank you so much!
Question: We have PS for two character meals and I had to give my credit card #. It says it will charge me if we fail to show up. Does anyone know how far ahead you would have to cancel to not be charged? I don't anticipate missing them, but would like to know. We are trying Tusker House and the Norway princess meal. Thanks!
We're waiting for our five grandchildren to arrive for the weekend. Yay, and we will be planning our next WDW trip.๐
I woke up this morning to snow in West Tx! It was really coming down and there were over 130 car wrecks this morning. Last weekend it was in the 90's. Pretty strange!
I happened to run across this pic from 1985. It's my daughter's first trip to DL ( she's got the cat shirt on). As you can see, she's really into it. This was taken at the Carnation Cafe. This is the same daughter who I will be driving 5 grandchildren (her kids) with to WDW this fall. :) we can't wait! Has anyone ever changed resorts in the middle of a stay? Is it a pain in the neck? Or worth it?
I guess I missed retro day, but this is one of my favorite photos at Disneyland about 20 years ago. They hadn't been having Magic Mornings for long and so not as many went in early. We went to Toon Town and for the first 45 minutes there was no one else back there but us. This is my nephew. We had the characters all to ourselves. I'll never forget it.๐
We are visiting Atlanta and just ate at a fabulous German restaurant. It made me think of Uppity and the Biergarten, which is also the name of this restaurant!
This is from DCA- I love Goofy's style. I finally downloaded this from my real camera. I have some photos from my DL trip on it.
WINNER: Congratulations, Tracsant by way of MrsIncredible! ๐๐๐Txt me your info and email address please! RAK from Disney's California Adventure! This is a 3-D magnet showing Walt and Mickey in the early CA years. Please enter by saying if you've ever been to DL and if not, do you ever think you will go? RAK ends Monday evening about 10 pm central time and winner will be randomly selected. I will mail it internationally.๐ Good luck!
Something interesting happened this last trip at DL. I was looking to replace a square Mickey watch that couldn't be fixed and unfortunately left it at home. I told the watch shop (the old one) on Main Street about the one I was trying to replace and why. They said if I brought it in, no matter if there was no receipt, or how old it was, I could leave it and see if they could fix it. If they couldn't, they would give me a new one. I bought one, but they said when I come back, to bring it and let them try and fix it. It just has to say Disney Parks or Disneyland on it. This seems so incredible to me, but I am going to try next time.
Our last attraction, the Tiki Room. For once, the dole whips sounded awful! We came prepared for highs of 68-70 degrees (which were the predictions). So we only had T's and light jackets. We were so cold in the mornings and evenings! I broke down and bought some gloves. We wore a couple of shirts, extra socks and tried our best to stay warm. This is why dole whips didn't sound good. However, I spent lots of time in the Disney Starbucks with hot coffee. It was usually in the high 30's when we went out in the mornings and in the low 40's once it was dark. Next January, I will bring my cold weather gear!

Windows in the Jolly Holiday bakery/lunch/coffee shop in DL.
This is where we ate lunch yesterday, before leaving DL for this trip. They have the BEST corn dogs!!
Silly Symphony Swings at DCA yesterday. This is a fun little ride in DCA.
Today, we are only able to go in tonight, so I hope it's not crowded!
Dinner at Trader Sam's last night. It's at the Disneyland Hotel and has a small menu and specialty drinks.
Yesterday, the Matterhorn. I couldn't seem to post from the park.
My sister-in-law and I got to eat lunch at Carthay Circle today. It was a great meal and very elegant.๐
