    24 hours in Anaheim...a Mini Trip Report by PB

    Hi Folks!


    Since Ken and I have been working non stop on our house and yard lately, we decided to take a day off and go play in DL.

    Our adventure began at 5:30 am when my hubby grabbed my knee to wake me up.....this was my left knee which still hurts from falling on the last trip to DL so in my half awake state , I said "Don't ever touch my left knee! LOL We had packed very very light in our carry on suitcases, but my pink carry on bag was stuffed with all kinds of princess and pirate things! Everything went right as scheduled for the traveling part of the trip. Our Southwest flight down there was so uncrowded that we could sit wherever we wanted so we chose the back. Because the plane was uncrowded , it was also very light so we kind of bounced up and down a few times on the landing! Whee!!When we entered the terminal I noticed these shirts in one of the gift shops......



    What woman in the right mind would buy these shirts with the zeros placed right where they are?! The least they could have done was make the zeros more circular since the oval shape of them would probably make a woman's boobs look really droopy!!




    Now this little section of the same store had some really cute shirts and other items. We didn't buy anything, but it was fun to look.


    We caught the Disneyland Express bus to our hotel and the driver was very nice and funny. We'd always thought that bus only went to the DLR hotels , but it turns out it goes to many of the hotels on the main strip. We stayed at the Carousel Inn and Suites on this trip and we thought it was a very good place, especially for the price we paid....$84 for a room with a queen bed.. The bedroom and bathroom both looked like they had been remodeled recently and they did a really good job. The bed was even really comfy. And the continental breakfast was included in the price and we liked the view of the park from the breakfast room. Someone told us you could also see the fireworks at night from the pool on the roof which makes sense since the hotel is right near the crosswalk to the main entrance going into DL.


    By 9:30 am , we were walking down Main Street in DL, but we were still half asleep so we decided to stop and sit in the chairs on the porch. We looked over and saw David from Micechat sitting there too so we visited with him for a few minutes. Then we were on our way again. We stopped for a diet coke and then got on Jungle Cruise . Our CM MARTIN was great!!















    There were some kids on our boat who screamed so loud at the piranhas...that totally cracked me up!!

    We went on POTC next so we could spend some more time sitting and resting. I never noticed till this trip that they've changed the silhouette of the two guys fighting so that it looks like one of them is Johnny Depp!

    When we came off of POTC, we decided to stop and take some pictures at the Tushie Spot.





    Next, we went over to Jewel of Orleans because I've had a surprise for my husband on layaway there. I was ready to pay it off on this trip but needed to see if it needed to be sized or not so I had him come in the store and the CM covered his eyes with her hand while I tried the surprise on his finger. It fit perfectly and it looked great.....but he doesn't get to have it till our 20 year wedding anniversary on August 15th!

    It was almost noon so we headed over to the hub. My hubby took some of these pictures and I took the ones where people are posing so you can actually see their faces.



    I was passing out the POTC magnets that Miceky Maxx and Rixter made. Everyone loved them as you can see from the expressions on their faces!!


    Look carefully at the back of Batman's (not his real name or even his username) shirt..the white eyes on the faces glowed on just about every ride we went on during the day...it was creepy and cool at the same time!


    Disney 1978..I love this gal and I found out on this trip tyhat she is a GREAT dancer!


    JJ misbehaving as usual...






    These two in the foreground are the cutest married couple! Now if finally got this straight, her username is Mary Ann in Wondrlnd. I hope that's right! We had a great time hanging out with them all day! And I love the way the Micechatter on the right looks like he's sticking out his tongue at them! LOL



    Aww! Doesn't my hubby look swell holding my pink bag?


    The Band of Gypsies family. Sorry I could not remember your name at first Band of Gypsies mom!


    TikiRoom Liz and Disney I Presume


    Judimouse and the cute married couple!


    David and the White Rabbit!



    Snow_White_Raven and her aunt




    Sam, of course


    Darkbeer


    A mini Band of Gypsies....isn't she darling?!




    I love this picture of this trio , but I am pulling a blank on their names right now. I'm so sorry!



    The congress of cons!



    But wait, we initally forgot a couple pairs!


    Deogge's mom and Darkbeer who were taking off to go to Knotts.


    Westely and Coheteboy



    Trader Rick and Ranger Rick and Doh! I can't think of his name right now.


    This is my favorite hub meet shot of the day!



    Wanda Woman and her son Jordan . It was his birthday and they were on their way to Ariel's to see the princesses for his birthday lunch.




    Spidergirrrl and her husband...I think we all scared him...especially me when I started dancing with Spiderguirrl later on in the line for POTC!



    More trip report later.........

    Re: 24 hours in Anaheim...a Mini Trip Report by PB

    ^ Aww! Thanks you two. I think I look tired and puffy and my weird shorts were a size too big and falling off all day!!!


    When we were at dinner and ordering salty pommes frites and salty french onion soup, I asked the waiter if they sold salt water retention pills anywhere in DL and he said they did at the pharmacy on Main Street. Of course , he also said that they sold frogs' legs and escargot at Cafe Orleans too!


    But I swear, I relly do puff up instantly the minute I set foot in Anaheim which is why I was wearing shorts that were a size too big in the first place!!! They were really falling off once they got soaking wet on Splash Mountain...it's a really good thing they had a drawstring I could cinch tighter to hold them up on me!!!

    Scooby...is the Carousel Inn called that because it used to have a carousel in the circular part of the buidling?


    My son would have liked staying there because of the Qiznos next door.
