I'm now kicking myself for not getting a NBC pirate t-shirt for Josh's FE, I completely forgot how much you guys like the ride let alone the movie. It was on clearance and would have been perfect

Chloe's pictures are great

Heck no, you spoiled him rotten! He loved every bit of it. Me too.


Thanks. I love her photos. She's got a unique eye and she's patient.

I couldn't remember if you had finished this report, but then I didnt remember you posting that we met and no one took pictures, so there you go!

Chloe takes great pictures. Next time we ride things like POTC or HM I need to bring the good camera and not my P&S. I sort of wish I had a staff photographer!

I didn't finish. lesson learned. I waited so long and I can't find my notes. I'm going off photos and the kids' memories.


I think her pics are nice too, thank you. She's so patient and will take the same one over and over to get the best one possible.

The holidays at the DLR are amazing. Is like Disney magic on crack. It's got the intimate Disneyland feel with the extra bonus of Disney holiday cheer. It's my all time favorite time to go.

I just love seeing your DL pictures. POC looks way cool. Is there more light in there for pictures because your turned out great and you can see them (unlike WDW POC pictures which require tons and tons of editing )

Also - NBC looks super cute.

I really can't wait to go to DL. The more I see, the more I want to go.

You will adore Disneyland. It's really something special. WDW is fun, a good time, but Disneyland is meaningful to me. Maybe because its the one I know, maybe because its Walt's park, I don't know but seeing his candle lit in the window is just so touching. Do you have plans to go?

Disneyland's POTC is much longer, way more scenes and has two drops. It's really spectacular. WDW and Disneyland each have rides that are better at each park. MK's Peter Pan is better, I think. Splash too. Disneyland's POTC and Space are better. BTMRR had been closed for our last trips but I don't recall any glaring differences. IASW at Disneyland is amazing. MK has CoP and CBJ but DL had Toad and the Matterhorn. Sorry for the tangent.

I can tell you that DLs BTMRR is better. It just reopened and they added such awesome new technology that it Kicks A$$. You will love it when you ride it. It is awesome!

It is? We haven't been on BTMRR for years. Literally. It was closed in WDW in 2013 and during all of our day trips to Disneyland in 2013 as well. I can't wait to ride it.

The track is sooo much smoother and the explosion scene at the end is completely reimagined. Sit in the back so you can experience the whole "show."

The back it is. This is one of our collective favorites. I see us blowing all our FPs on this.

I can't wait for it! Kids are stoked too. Our friends will be on their own that day. We're excited to see you and spend some non rushed time together. Once I make my reservations at the GCV, we can plan which day works best for you.
