    FoundMyHappyPlace Trip Report

    Without being too long and drawn out (not to mention about a week late already) here goes:

    We arrived early Sunday morning, Father's Day and waited for my Dad, brother and nephew to arrive. My Dad hadn't been in 14 years and it was time for him to enjoy Disneyland with the Grandkids. So, we waited.



    So we headed to Adventurland (in the opposite direction of the Nemo hunters) and took the first boat of the day through the Jungle Crouse. The kids took G-Pa on Indy while my brother and I caught up with eachother. Next on to POTC and then to Haunted Mansion. While waiting for the Splash riders, we took a photo op with Pooh.

    Let's see if I can do the rest of this without posting on accident!

    We decided that it was time for lunch and stopped at Cafe' Orleans where they told us the wait would be 15 minutes, so we used our time wisely and posed with pirates.


    An hour later we finally go in to eat. It was tasty and the manager made it up to us with Pommes Frites, Mickey Beignets and ride passes. We took a ride on the Columbia:


    Some of our party went to BTMRR and then on to the Parade of Dreams! This is FMHP making use of the sunglasses because parades make her teary eyed...




    We enjoyed Its a Small World (the Princess always does):


    We tried to visit with the Princesses but the line was too long and in the sun but look who spotted us and stopped to say hi!



    A few more attractions and part of the family was ready to leave so one group picture:


    That night we enjoyed Fantasmic. As a sidenote, my daughter brought a friend who had never been to DLR in her life and it was so fun to enjoy it with her!

    Day two in my next post....

    Great TR!
    Nice that the manager made up for your extra long wait!
    And I love the Snow White picture!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    From one that's been known to post a long and drawn out TR upon occasion...

    Very well done so far...I'm looking forward to the rest!

    Re: FoundMyHappyPlace Trip Report

    Thanks for the kind comments!

    Monday was our non-park day so we thought we'd do Goofy's Kitchen. Its sort of a tradition with us. We use to call it our "poor man's Disneyland" because when we came to town, we would go there for a brunch to get a little Disney fix when we couldn't afford the whole enchilada. We have had a few problems there (this trip was no exception) but there is no need to dive in to that, I want to stay positive.

    Chip always seems to have time to visit the Princess and she is in love with him!


    The big girls didn't want Dale to feel left out.


    Of course Alice stopped by for a chat and perhaps some tea.



    We spent the rest of the day with my Dad, at my Mom's care home and having dinner with my brother's family. Next, Tuesday in the park!

    I think I saw you guys in the park during this trip... In City Hall actually... I think it was you I gave the Princess button too... I could be wrong but I really think it was you guys that I saw... If any of this sounds familiar than yay... Nice to have unofficially met you.. If not then ignore the crazy girl...

    lol... I thought it was you when I was handing the button to you but I didn't want to ask if it was you and then look like an idiot if it wasn't... So I just ignored it... That is so funny...
