    Flat Stanley's Trip to Disneyland Oct 29th & 30th (Warning: LOTS of pictures!)

    Here is Flat Stanley's TR for his Disneyland trip! I'll be doing my own TR later. I hope you enjoy!

    The "owner" of this Flat Stanley loves Donald, so we made sure to get a picture with his pumpkin version:


    At the entrance


    Have to get the sign!


    Halloween at Disneyland


    Probably one of the most photographed "items" in the park:


    Besides this:


    And, of course, THIS:


    He got his own row in POTC:


    HMH


    Jack was the first character to meet Flat Stanley. He was a lot of fun! He was saying how they're old friends and it had been a while since he had seen him. I love how "expressive" he is... Yes I know it's a mask, but he still looks inquisitive to me in the first picture!




    Gotta have a churro! My trip feels incomplete if I don't have at least one while I'm there.


    Down in front!


    Also to DCA






    Chip and Dale always come up with cute poses:


    MUST have a picture with the main mouse!


    This actually was great timing since Stanley was supposed to be visiting us in Arizona... so it's a two-fer in that it has to do with Southwest culture! (Educational, right?)


    Being a horselover myself, I of course had to get a picture of him with the horse on Main Street. It got even better when the CMs saw me and had their own ideas:




    Good thing he's already flat!!


    Wreck-It Ralph. We had to hold Stanley for him, because he's pretty much like the Hulk!


    I don't know this character, but I guess she's in Wreck-It Ralph and drives racecars. I'll learn, eventually, since I plan to see the movie. :-)


    Stanley chose to just take a picture with a sub rather than ride one, seeing as how he's made of paper and not a big fan of water.


    He fits right in!


    Good ol' Goofy


    Personally, I adore the new dress.


    Cutest Snow White EVER! Her voice even matched the character perfectly!


    I have a great picture with a CM posing with Stanley on this ride, but I'm not sure the legalities of posting pictures of someone else? Anyway, ToT!


    DCA



    As you can see, Stanley had a pretty fun trip!! Thanks for all of your suggestions for picture ideas. The characters and CMs were all very willing to participate, and most were familiar with Flat Stanley. It was really fun for us!

    Clara - Yeah that was one of my favorites, too! It was unique, fun, and I got to talk about horses. A win-win-win for me. Having this "mission" on our trip gave it a whole different spin and new things to explore. I'd recommend some kind of treasure hunt thing on every trip to those who have been there more than a couple times. Very exciting, plus learn and see new things. I can't WAIT for my newbies to see all of this in December!!

    Speaking of treasure hunts I think there are geocaches in DLR.

    I wonder if they're legal. I heard rumor there was a bomb scare that turned out to just be a geocache.

    I'd like to do that.

    It's not a rumor. I was there that day. It wasn't fun. I got to Toy Story lot at 9 and wasn't allowed to leave the lot until around 10:45.

    As to whether or they are legal I don't know. But when you put something that looks like a pipe bomb in a tree near the entrance of California's top tourist attraction I am sure you will not get away with just a slap on the wrist.

    My husband and I have talked about trying geocaching around AZ, but I hadn't considered it in Disney. It would be really fun (assuming its legal)!

    Haha he definitely fits in! Flat Stanley is such a fun program. I can't wait until he sees all the pictures we took!

    People will probably need to be a little more particular on what they hide for geocaches, or perhaps keep them just off property. That would be scary and, like you said, NOT fun!

    Brittany, I loved the Smallworld shot too!

    Maybe I'll ask before I geocache in DLR even though I'm pretty sure there are some set up there. Technically you're supposed to ask permission prior to setting one up but who knows if they did!
