Thanks fellow chatters for all the nice comments! It is so great to have a place to share all the left over Disneyland excitement with folks who really appreciate it!

I try to make sure to write down anything that I might want to do later and take a list with me on our trip. (since my memory is shot!) I pick items from the list each day and highlight them off the list as we go. I can't even begin to tell how valuable Micechat has been in gathering such info!

Unfortunately, the only time we ever made it to the beach on one of our vacations there were warning signs on the beach about human biohazards. Wasn't very encouraging but we are not really beach people anyway. Hey, we'd rather be at Disneyland!

My knowledge of alcoholic beverages dates back some 20 odd years ago but I am thinking it resembled a Jack Daniels bottle. Of course, I have no way of knowing for sure but it was a clear liquid of some sort not in your average water bottle. The actors seemed pretty shocked but seized the opportunity to play off of it a bit.

I would love to see photographs of the guys' trip when you all split at Toon Town!
I do try to make sure to do something special each day, be it simply reservations or something big like a tour.
I too would love to see and hear what the guys are doing. I am sure thier trip report would in no way resemble ours!

1. how do you get set up for the cookie making?
2. Would you say the walking on the Discover Magic Tour would be to much for a 4 year old? We have a 7, 6, and 4!
3. Where did you get that great picture on the seahorse? that is wonderful.
4. Where did you stay that you went in and out so much and did not become dead tired?
Well it looks like you had a great time! Again what a wonderful family!
You are absolutely right! Family is what it's all about, at least in our house.
A couple of years ago my son would not have looked like he was having as much fun. Thankfully, this year he was in much better humor and did enjoy himself. It certainly helped that he had a couple of Jiu-Jitsu classes planned to look forward to.
1. The cookie making was held daily starting at 11:00, I think every hour but you should check their schedule that is posted out front of the Plaza Pavilion on the left side of Main Street. I have heard at times it is very busy and more difficult to get a spot but when we were there it was not crowded.
2. I would imagine your 4 year old is pretty used to keeping up with your 2 older ones! They do allow strollers if you think the walking might be too much. There were some younger ones in our group that didn't seem to have any problem keeping up.
3. The seahorse photo is from King Triton's Carousel in CA. I love the horses on King Arthur's in DL but I honestly love the ocean creatures on KT even more. They are so bright and beautiful! Plus it is often not busy so you can stay on for another go round!
4. We have stayed for the past 7 years at the Anaheim Desert Inn. It is nothing fancy but it is clean, affordable and just a few steps from the main entry crosswalk. IMHO being able to come and go with ease is an absolute must! I don't want to sound like a salesman here so PM me if you want more details.
