Oh man, that's too bad you got sick. I'm sorry! Jesus sounds a lot like Ruben the way he took care of you. That's so sweet. It's nice to have such a good guy isn't it? He sounds like a keeper.

Love the characters in their holiday clothing. Very festive. And I love all the shots from the Small World Holiday. I miss it!

So many pretty pictures. I'm happy that the two of you were able to enjoy the parks a little. Jesus is a great guy to take care of you like that.

Ohhhh SICK! Doggone it! That stinks!

I hope you get better soon in this TR.

I just wanted to say that the chicken salad looks amazing!

Also, I thought the pic of Donald in his xmas gear was cute because it looks like he's looking passed everybody else and just waving at you.

Great update!

Being sick at DLR must be the worst! Especially when you only have a few good days in the park and have spent good money to be there and stay at HoJo's, you don't want to use up the time up being sick! I have never been sick myself there (knock on wood) in the traditional sense (I have had bad problems with pain in my back and legs, though), but my friend Shawn always seems to get sick in some way when she is there. I am surprised you even had an appetite for that big chicken salad, but it is probably good you got something healthy in your stomach. (DLR definitely does not skimp on their salads in any of their restaurants. Have you noticed? I don't know if you have ever eaten at Wine Country Trattoria, but my friend Jackie ordered a pizzetta salad from there the other night, and it was ENORMOUS! It was a tower o' salad! I couldn't believe that they would serve a salad that big to one person! She was hungry but she couldn't even eat a quarter of it, it was so huge! I mean, she barely made a dent in it. I wish I had snapped a picture!)

Anyway, I am glad to hear that Jesus takes care of you and makes sure you get your rest when you are sick, and then makes sure you still get to see the fireworks! He knows how much you love DLR, so he probably knows how bad you feel dealing with being sick while you are there and during his birthday trip, no less! He definitely does sound like a keeper! And to echo what everyone else has said, you guys are SO cute together. (And I STILL think you should go into modeling, Courtney - just in case you haven't already considered doing that!! You have great features!)

Sorry you got so sick at DL!!! That's no fun but I'm glad you started feeling better!

I love all of the Christmas decorations! IASW was closed when we were there so I never got to ride it! Bummer. Why is Paradise Pier empty with no water in it? It looks really funny that way!

Hi Jasmine! I know you're at DLR right now! I hope you're having a wonderful time!!

Thank you!

I know, isn't he sweet!? The chicken salad was SO good!! You have to try it! Same with the ice cream! I always get either the bubble gum flavor or the cotton candy flavor and those are way better than stinky orange!

Hi Sherry!!!!!

Yeah the salad was huge! I didn't even eat the bread part because I got full with the salad part. It was so yummy too!

I know, Jesus was really sweet on taking care of me that day. He's a wonderful guy.

Aw thank you, Sherry, you're so sweet! I always wanted to get into modeling, but I ended up competing in pageants, but it really wasn't the same!

Aren't the Christmas decorations wonderful? I love them!

Paradise Pier is empty because they're going to be adding a water type show, so they had to drain it to add all the stuff at the bottom of the lake. Doesn't it look funny? They should have put walls around!!

Disneyland - Day 3

Wednesday, December 3rd - DLR Day 3

Wow, it's been awhile since an update, huh? I'm sorry for taking forever and 6 days to do this TR! Thank you for hanging in there with me! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! Now on to the TR!

This was our thrid day at DLR and we woke up this morning bright and early. I was feeling wonderful and not a bit sick at all. From how I felt, it felt like my fever was gone. I took one Tylenol just in case though.

We wanted to get to the gates at rope drop (9:00AM) but of course that didn't happen. We weren't too late. We got there at 9:15. We hit Fantasyland first and got a heck of a lot done here. We hit Snow White and Pinnochio. We were going to do Peter Pan first (always first) but 15 minutes does make a huge difference. The line was already long for that, so we just skipped it. This is the day that EmmersistheMommy won the Dream Suite at PP around 9:30am, so if we would have gotten in line we would have been near her winning!! Not until we got onto Dumbo I started taking pictures.



I've never paid attention to this before.





I took a picture of our feather.





Next we went to the Mad Tea Party.

I really like Monstro!



Birthday Button Boy on the tea cups. That's a fake smile.



See what happens when he spins the cup too fast! Puke!





That was the first time ever in my life that I actually got a little sick on that ride. Probably from being sick the day before, but I was no feeling too hot after that ride. Bleh. Next we went on the carousel. I wanted to ride Jingles, but a little girl got there first. So we rode a couple horses in front.

Weirdo!!



This is me scared on the carousel. I DO NOT like horses at all. They're gross. Gross with big huge teeth. EW..!!!



Jingles! Oh man, I love Julie Andrews.





Then we got hungry so went to Riverbelle Terrace to grab some breakfast. We waited in line foreverrrr. There was only one side open, but the CM at the cash register was so so so slow. The CMs who were serving the food were even getting a little peeved. It was so frustrating because we were starving. Well, I ordered the Mark Twain and Jesus ordered the Steamboat. I really loved my potatoes and Jesus liked his pancakes. We left pretty happy full campers (besides having to wait so long).

Mark Twain.



Steamboat.



After that we walked past the Golden Horseshoe and saw the Laughing Stock Co. performing, so we stopped and watch. They're really, really funny.



They were arguing over which lady was their Mom, the young lady in the greenish shirt or the older lady in skirt, lol.







Then we saw everyone who was in line to go see the Billys was being allowed inside, so we hopped in the back of line and found a seat near the front. We've never watched Billy Hill and the Hillbillies before and we loved it. It was so funny and we plan on watching them every trip now!







After that we made a potty stop and headed over to Big Thunder Ranch.

Shadows!!

Disneyland - Day 3 Con't


BTMRR was down for refurb the week we were there. It was covered in tarps.



We made it to Big Thunder Ranch! Well, uh, Santa's Reindeer Roundup!



Look! Real reindeer. Who knew!?



Santa wrote this nice note so we don't feed or touch his reindeer.



Rudolph!?!







Mrs. Clause!!



Pluto with antlers.





After that we walked over to Fantasyland to get on the train. But we really wanted popcorn so we stopped and got some of that too!!

Little Harold making some popcorn.



Seriously, DLR popcorn is the best in the world.



Mickey water tower over by the Toon Town train station.



Us on the train!



Matterhorn from inside the train.



Giraffe!!



Now the train was acting really weird. After we boared, we were on the train just stuck for about 15 minutes. The train would start, then stop and jerk and then we were stuck. It did this twice. After 15 minutes, the conductor told us something was wrong with the train and that they didn't know how long it would take to fix it so if we wanted to get off we could. Well, we were happy eating our popcorn and just sitting there so we stayed. Right after more than half the people left, the conductor said nevermind, we fixed it!! So off we went!

The only good picture that came out inside the dioramas!



So we rode the train to Main Street station and hopped over to DCA. We then went to go see the Muppets!



I really like this!



I like this random little piggy spaceship too!



Then we walked out and saw that the Delta Daddy-Os were singing in front of the animation building. They were singing oldies music, so of course we had to stop and watch and clap along. After about 5 minutes they saw Jesus' birthday button and called the birthday boy out so they could sing happy birthday to him. He loved it!!! He talked about it for days afterwards, totally made his year!!! It was wonderful! These guys are really really outstanding if you ever get a chance to see them.

Disneyland - Day 3 Con't






So after this is where my pictures get a little screwy. We had to delete some because the memory card was getting full, so at this time I am now confused. But from what I remember after that we left DCA and went back to the hotel. We changed and got ready for the evening and came back.





We then had our picture taken in front of the wintery castle!



Then we got 2 hot chocolates and 2 churros and found a spot near IASW to watch the parade.



We didn't get any pictures of the parade because this is when our camera ran out of space. For some reason that night there were no fireworks. It wasn't due to wind or anything, I think it was on the times guide already. After the parade we walked around in NOS and I bought the BEST stuffed animal ever. Scary Teddy! I saw a little girl with him the day before and I knew I wanted it. I took this picture of him in the hotel.



After that we left the park and went to DTD to eat. If you didn't notice we didn't really eat much this day. I still wasn't feeling too well and Jesus was being a stubborn sweety and didn't want to eat if I didn't want to. So since we was the birthday boy he got to pick where to eat for dinner. He chose Naples. We ate there last year for his birthday and he loved it. Unfortunately, I have no pictures of our meal, but I will tell you what we ate! I ordered a strawberry Italian Soda to drink. Jesus ordered some sparkling wine. It was good I had some! Then to eat I ordered the Prosciutto e Melone. It was Proscuitto and fresh melon with burrata and lavender scented honey. I also ordered a cup of minestrone soup. Both were super yummy! Jesus ordered the Tagliatelle Dell'Aragosta which was tagliatelle pasta with lobster and roasted garlic in a rich lobster cream sauce. He ate the whole thing. Then we ordered a pizza to share. The pizza we got was the Salciccie which was italian sasuage, fresh mozzarella, roasted yellow and red peppers, onions and tomato sauce. Oh yeah, I copied all that from the menu online. Don't want to fool you that I'm all shnazzy in Italian!

After our wonderful dinner we headed back to the hotel. I wasn't feeling to well and we were tired!!!

Yay! More TR! It has been so long! You know, the first thing I noticed about the blonde lady in the green shirt/sweater with the Laughing Stock Co. is that she looks very much like Jenny McCarthy, with the way Jenny wears her hair these days and everything. For a second I thought it was, but Jenny has a son so unless she was toting around someone else's daughter (it appears to be a little girl next to her), then I guess it is not Jenny!

What kind of camera do you use, Courtney? The nighttime pictures do seem to come out pretty well. Is it a point and shoot, or what kind is it?

I noticed those Teacups were much faster two weeks ago - even with mild spinning - than they were the last time I had been on them in 2000. I used to be able to take some spinning but they have sped them up to the point where even a little is a lot!

I love the Scary Teddy! I also have JUST begun to notice the popcorn carts and the various critters and characters spinning the popcorn inside. See, that goes to show - no one person ever notices everything when they go to DLR. We all see new things (to us) every time, even if these things have been there for 50 years, and just 2 weeks ago was when I started to look inside the popcorn carts and saw the Oogie Boogie spinning and thought to look inside other ones! Mariezp got a picture of Santa spinning the popcorn for her TR. I didn't take any pictures of them, but NOW I know better for the next holiday trip!!!

As you know, I like Naples too - even though I ordered the same pizza on both visits and it was different each time! I find their food to be very flavorful and tasty - certainly the portion sizes are great - and the service has always been good for us. I have been surprised when I have read about other folks who have been there and hated Naples! Not even just mildy disliked it but HATED it! Isn't it amazing how different people can be in the same location and have a totally different experience and view it in such different ways?
