    I should be changing the laundry, but it's much more fun to sit here, and read your trip report. Your children are adorable. The parents aren't bad either. How nice for you that you got to rub elbows with all those famous celebs.

    Re: The Adventures of the Gonzo Family and the Temple of the Defaulted Loan

    Soon, Mrs Gonzo and Vash went on Big Thunder while I returned with Atticus to the Carousel, then, we hit up It's a Small World. Fun times were had by all the puppets.

    Hey, It's my Band (Searchlight-Needles) Shameless!

    Is that you PenguinSoda?

    Is that...Is that Cactus a Hidden something or other?

    Atticus had been talking about Tinkerbell for a lot of the trip, so, I thought I'd take him over to meet her while I waited for the coaster duo. Huge mistake...This made me really happy that I have boys and not girls. That line sucks and there is very little return for your wait. By the time we got up to her, Atticus wasn't in the mood for pictures...Luckily, I'll never have to do that again.

    Angry lady is angry. Tinkerbell had best be gettin' my photo!

    He was like "You're not tinkerbell...leave me alone"

    Hey, there baby...Whatcha doin' later? Oh, you're taking more pictures with kids...fair enough.

    We topped off the day with some more fantasy land rides....

    Are you ready to see the Churros and Popcorn again?

    HHHHHRRRRRNNNNNGGGG!!!

    We're the all american family...or, a bunch of psychos!

    Okay, It was time for some dinner...Onward Ho!

    More to come.

    LOVE the captions! I'm dyin' here. Great TR!

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Re: The Adventures of the Gonzo Family and the Temple of the Defaulted Loan

    We made a stop at Ridemakerz, so, that I could drop a ton of money on toy cars...Weeeeee.

    only three more payments and it's mine

    We then headed to Rainforest Cafe for some dinner...and that's really about it...Hmmm...End of Tuesday...

    Lemonade! The Nectar of the Gods!

    I too enjoy Lemonade

    Forget the Lemonade. Get me a Beer!

    It was back to the Hotel for us, and some much needed Sleep. Disneyland should really think about replacing all those benches with beds. It would be much easier then...I guess all the snoring would get annoying...Okay, Disneyland, you win this round.

    More to come.

    Re: The Adventures of the Gonzo Family and the Temple of the Defaulted Loan

    Wednesday Morning, we actually got to sleep in a little before we headed To Plaza Inn for Breakfast with Minnie and Friends. On our way inside, who should we see? Well, none other than Fred McMurray!

    We thought you were dead!

    We hastened our way to Plaza Inn and began feasting. Food is good.

    Dustin Hoffman was there

    Emo Horse Showed up. He's so sad.

    Larry King stopped by

    Oh, wow! Tom Cruise! What an honor!

    Lindsay Lohan has really let herself go, but, she was really nice.

    Of course, Bjork was there...She was such a gracious Host.

    Then, amidst our wonderful breakfast feast, I look up to find....OUR STALKERS!!!

    What do you want? Why are you following us?

    This can't just be happenstance that we'd find you here too...

    I'm scared...I'm really worried they'll show up to my house...Why? Why C & D? Did I offend you? I know I said Duck Tales was better than Rescue Rangers, but, I'll take it back...I swear I will!!

    Re: The Adventures of the Gonzo Family and the Temple of the Defaulted Loan

    After Breakfast, we headed out to Main Street with a quick stop to pay money to destroy Money. Crushed Penny time. Then Suddenly, who should appear, but, SkyBlueFusion with snacks in the rear...of her backpack that is. We all decided to head to DCA to get our World of Color Fastpasses and enjoy the parks, so, off we went. We hit the Fire station on our way over.

    It reminds of the Jungle Cruise scene where the Apes have taken over the camp.

    We headed through Condor flats and ran into Charles Lindbergh himself!

    If you're looking for your baby, you should check out Chip and Dale, they're fishy.

    Vash decided he wanted to soak me again, so, we hopped on Grizzly River Run while SBF and Mrs. Gonzo got our fastpasses.

    This area reminds me so Much of the Gila Forest.

    Not getting soaked...I went through all my pants....Okay, so, I'm a guy and only brought two pairs with me, but, they were both soaked!

    We then decided to go Hit Toy Story Midway Mania, with a few detours on the way.

    This was a strawberry Jellyfish...Get it? Strawberry...Jelly...Fish...HAHAHAHAHA...I'm so imaginative and haven't stolen all my Jokes from Fozzie Bear

    These symphony swings...well, to be quite frank, they're silly.

    This whale has a serious acne problem

    We finally made it to TSMM, and SBF will tell you that I scored the all time highest score ever reported on that ride and, in fact, did not have only 2900 points. This is indisputable. I took a picture of it, but, the picture disappeared. Um...I wouldn't lie to you...Would I?

    Is that The SkyBlueFusion in stylish 3D Glasses with the Gonzo Clan? Worlds Collide!

    We then hit ITTBAB and enjoyed that. Atticus only freaked out when it went dark and, surprisingly, calmed down when the Spiders appeared above him. My kids are strange.

    Disney should just issue 3D glasses to everyone as they walk in the park.

    It was now time to head back into Disneyland and Hunt Down Farley the Fiddler! He had a bounty on his head and we were aiming to claim it. Or, we were going to enjoy some first class fiddlin'. Win/Win in my book.

    More to come.

    Re: The Adventures of the Gonzo Family and the Temple of the Defaulted Loan

    We made our way out to Frontierland and realized we had a little time to wait for Farley, and realized that, according to the clock, it was Ice Cream time! A couple of Ice Cream Sandwiches and fruit bars later, Farley Arrived!

    I don't play musical instruments much, but, when I do, I play the fiddle

    Farley was awesome! He was really getting the kids into it and told some great horrible jokes (What do you call a cow that just gave birth? Decaffeinated!) Suddenly, the Mayor showed up!

    Yeah, I voted for him, but, he's done a lot to clean up the streets of Frontierland...Or was that the custodial staff? Hmmm... I may need to rethink my position

    Farley asked us where we were from, and lit up when we said, "El Paso" He then jumped right into Marty Robbins' El Paso..."Out in the west texas town of El Paso..." He paraphrased the song for us, so, everyone got the gist of it. We thanked him and said goodbye. It was time to go nuts on Tom Sawyer Island.

    I really should have taken more pictures of SBF...And Farley for that Matter...oh well.

    Now, I never considered Walt Disney an Evil Man...That is until we took the kids to TSI. In my heart of hearts, I believe he looked into the future and saw me and wanted to punish me. Yes, dear readers, Walt Disney himself looked into the future with the time glasses his imagineers built (it's all in his biography...at least the one I found online) and he said to himself, "That Reverend Gonzo needs to be driven to madness and i'm just the man to do it. Get me the plans to Tom Sawyer Island! I need to make some Changes!"

    So, after about an hour and a half of searching for my kids...Really, i'd find one, and the other would scurry off...then I'd find him, and the other one had disappeared and those caves are not built for the portly fellow...anyway, after an hour and a half of searching for my kids We made our way back to the mainland.

    oh, yeah, you're cute now......you little such and such

    where they were trying to put me

    I can't stay mad at you...but, Walt has some answerin' to do...where's his office?!

    A few more rides and it was time to wait for World of Color. I was excited...kinda...

    More to come.

    You are right. Chip and Dale are rather sketchy. When my Doc was 6 months old we couldn't shake Chip at Goofy's Kitchen! He just wouldn't leave us alone. Quite suspicious....
