    It's a great thing! I think that picture has a lot of life. Pluto looks so happy.

    I know he jumped into the shot. He's a ham.

    The last batch of shots are from the land of Tomorrow. Tomorrowland is in need of some love, I agree, however, I did have fun there, especially when I ran into a pair of storm troopers.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    I left the park early that day. I guess almost a week of days at Disneyland/DCA was finally too much for this old body. The next day, I would be changing hotels. My roommate would be picking me up and we would be checking into the Quality Inn together. Join me tomorrow, as the 7th day's worth of pictures are presented.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    Before I go ahead with my 7th day, let me just say that I wish that I had taken more photos of the 2 hotels that I stayed with on this trip. I started my vacation at Dolphin's Cove, which is located on Orangewood, just off of Harbor Blvd. That is a timeshare hotel, and I had a one bedroom unit. Very nice. Nice, and comfy. It's nice having timeshare points in Wyndham, when I can use them for a Disney Vacation.

















    On the Thursday of my trip, Jody picked me up from Dolphin's Cove around 10 a.m., and she drove us to The Quality Inn, which is located, on Manchester, near the Howard Johnson. I wish that I had thought to take more pictures during my 4 day stay there. I guess we had other things on our mind. Like the Anniversary activities, and the parks.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    I use my camera to document my trip. However the last four days, I didn't do such a great job in that department. Hanging out with friends, and the way I like to talk, means my camera stayed in the camera way too much, and picture opportunities were missed.

    Jody and I did get this great picture in Carthay Circle due to the placement of the Photopass photographer.



    The next pictures on my memory card for that day are of the cars racing in the Cars Land ride, Radiator Spring Racers. It is a fun pastime of park guests to try and get this shot.





    Mater came by while we were taking those pictures. He's definitely a fan favorite, both in the movie, and in the park.



    I never tired of getting this shot, or seeing this cool scene.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    We made our way to the Zephyr. One of my favorite rides in DCA. I can't remember whether we rode the ride, and then saw "The Green Army Men", or the other way around. All I know is that I loved the ride, and the show, which stopped right in front of the Zephyr. That seems to be a favorite place for shows to stop.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    I think it was as we were getting off the Zephyr that the Green Army Men showed up. Good timing on their part!

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    Looks like you had a couple of great rooms- I have very little experience with hotels in the area so it's nice to tuck those bits of info away for future use, when I may need a room.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    A nice place to take a break is on a bench behind the Ferris Wheel. I still want to call it the Sun Wheel. I have taken a lot of pictures of that wheel. Pictures back as far as 2005, when there was a sun on the wheel. The Mickey face is only on one side. I am scratching my head, trying to remember, if the sun was on both sides.

    I love palm trees, and the ones behind the wheel are beautiful. I'm from the Midwest, and we don't have any palm trees, so when I first saw the California ones back in 2005, I immediately fell in love with them.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    I remember that we rode Toy Story Mania together, and Jody beat me pretty good. I never do well on that ride, but it is always a whole lot of fun.

    When a body get's old, and you can't climb upon a carousel animal anymore, it's nice having a friend along, who will sit on the bench with you and take your picture.







    Jody also took these other pictures of me as we visited the characters, and enjoyed the Pier.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    We decided that we wanted to catch the next Aladdin Show, and the fastest way over there, was through Bugs Land. We passed by the creatures that live there, as well as the beautiful flowers. I absolutely love daisies of every size and color. Bugs, on the other hand creep me out. You won't catch me too close to the real thing.





    This was my 2nd time seeing the Aladdin show this trip, and Jody's first. We sat up pretty high, and I didn't even try and take any pictures. The show was very enjoyable. Whoever writes the Genie's material is really a clever individual.

    Re: Barbaraann's Anniversary Tale

    I can remember at least one player you beat at Toy Story Mania. Soundly.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I do remember that, and the wait was 40+ minutes back then. Now the wait on that ride has been cut in half thanks to Cars Land.
