    Re: Joe's 2nd trip to Cars Land - with photos of course

    what day of the week was this trip on? And I remember seeing that hat at Walt Disney World, at the Boardwalk hotel gift shop on the Boardwalk. It was clearanced and I remember trying it on and almost buying it but thought... no one would wear it and why would someone wear it... but now that Carsland is here you wearing it in Carsland just makes sense.




    And I can't believe the ride operators put the little girl in the backseat in the middle. Wonder if she was able to see anything! PLUS super handsome guys in the front row!

    Now is definitely the time to visit Disneyland. The crowds are the best I've seen it in recent memory. I'm not sure how it is during the week, but the two Saturdays that we've visited were great. We were walking through Adventureland, a place known for always being crowded, and it was empty during the middle of the day! A line only 2 people deep for Dole Whips!

    This was on Saturday, June 23rd.
    I remember when I bought it, they sold it near Autopia at WDW. I also saw it a couple years ago in the stores at DL, but it didn't last very long. I'm glad I finally have a land I can wear it in and not get crazy looks.

    I didn't even notice that poor girl in the back row in the middle. That's unfortunate.

    I've been asking for light ice on all of these new drinks though. My first time trying the Grape Tonic and Natural Lemonade, I was finished with the drink, but the cup was still over 1/2 full of ice.
    Did it really taste like pear? Pear, to me, has such a mild flavor, I worry that the syrup content to make it taste like anything will make it out of control sweet. I love actual pears, and Juicy Pear Jelly Bellys, so I may need to just give in and try it! I think a round of "Drinking around the Springs!" is in order.

    Also, I ask for "no ice" everywhere I go. McDonald's, Starbucks, Flo's. I'm NOT paying $4 for ice.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

    Hmm, did it taste like pear? It's hard to say since, you're right, pear is a mild flavor. It tasted like Sprite with sweetness added to it and maybe a little bit of pear. Either way though, I thought it was tasty. My favorite so far though has been Doc Hudson's Grape Tonic.
    I think the "Drinking around the Springs" is a great idea! So far I've tried the Pair of Dice Soda, Filmore's Natural Lemonade, Red's Apple Freeze, and Doc Hudson's Grape Tonic. I'll be adding to that when I go back this Friday!

    There is also a pear related drink at the Mad T Party, which I suspect might be the same thing with a different name...cause how many pear based drinks does one theme park need?
