    February Trip Report

    Trip #2 - 2 days/2 nights

    For this trip, we stayed at Abbys Anaheimer on Katella. The people there were very nice. We found a great deal, reserved online, and had no problems with check-in. The room wasn’t terrific. There was no clock, no bathroom vent (mold), and the coffee maker and phone were broken. We asked for two wake up calls (no clock), and received one late call and one completely missed. Those things aside, we did get a good deal, and it was about a half hour walk to the California Grand Hotel. Good enough for me! I had never been inside the California Grand, so this was a great opportunity for me to check it out. Add a night there (for half the price) to my Disney Bucket List. And White Water Snacks is my new favorite place for breakfast.

    As soon as we entered the park, I went to City Hall to take some pictures of the bookcase. A CM asked if Id like to see a really cool book, and led me into a back room where she showed me Disneyland’s personal guest book. So cool!!

    Another CM who went above & beyond was this Transformers fan. My daughter likes to take tourist pics of a Bumblebee action figure throughout the park. He saw us doing this, and jumped into the picture with his own fandom. My daughter got to talk Transformers in Disneyland, and that made her trip. It got me thinking how it really is these people who make the Disney experience so special. I think Im going to choose three (or more) cast members each time I visit, and write Disney about the things they do for us. I have my list for this trip.

    Valentines Week and Lunar New Year were in full swing. And while pieces of Mardi Gras remained, we watched it gradually come down.

    One of the perks of having a Disney cc is a free 5x7 photo with a character. We went back to an area behind the Mad T Party, and took pictures with Stitch. They let us choose from tons of pictures. It was a great experience.

    I finally tried the corndog from the red cart on Main Street. Absolutely the best corndog ever. And I discovered my newest favorite thing, Ghirardelli’s Midnight Reverie



    We closed down Star Tours, and I was the Rebel Spy. On the way out, my daughter noticed that the porch bench on Main Street was empty. We finally got to sit there and watch the people spill out of the park. It was just as fun as I always imagined.

    IASW looked so bare, but the tea cups looked so pretty, even under refurbishment. The moon looked like a Cheshire smile. And my favorite ride this trip was Soaring.

    Last week we were there for our family vacation. My son rode star tours with his daddy (he is five) about 5 times over the week. He was the rebel spy the last time. MADE HIS LIFE!! I am sure he will never forget that. And of course we had to get the tee shirt that says "i am the rebel spy"

    Haha I think they choose unflattering ones on purpose. I was super annoyed by an obnoxious group shouting out "Sorry, folks! I'm still getting used to my programming" over and over, so they got a shot of me glaring!

    I know EXACTLY how your son feels!! I was so sad they didn't have a women's version of that shirt. It was like a milestone in my life!! Haha
