Another awesome bit of trivia! Wow! I wish they wouldn't have destroyed it. Very clever.

LL, sounds like you had a GREAT evening being solo! All the way from enjoying to DHS to "me time" in the hotel. I hope your feet start to feel much better for when your Mom arrives...
Oh yes, I remember her tights too! It was a great evening despite the rain and feet.

I'm so glad you were able to do a lot of exploring and just enjoy DHS before the rains came. Even better you were able to just have some time to relax and rest those poor feet of yours!!

I cannot wait for our DHS day...the 4 of us are going to have a blast hitting up certain places and areas and I think One Man's Dream should be one of them!!!!!

Great update LL!
I really can't wait for DHS again, it's so much fun. I am just super happy while I am there.

I really need to do One Man's Dream. I think I did it 15 years ago but not since then-if it was even open then. As you saw from the sign, not much was there back then!
There seemed to be a lot of changes to One Man's Dream even from when I was there last September. It's a great tribute to Walt.

I'm starting DS out early reading him a kid's bio of Disney-he was really so visionary and I particularly love his early short cartoons from the 30s and of course Snow White-beautiful... and the 50s-Peter Pan and Sleeping Beauty and Alice of course...

I was really interested in your report of the Hollywood Brown Derby-sounds great-I enjoyed living vicariously through your experience-I started having a meal there once...but dd started to feel ill so I took her outside and let DH & DS finish......I'll have to get back there some day...

(I got sick on a different trip and missed my meal at Jiko...-perhaps my family is cursed...and it's never the Counter Service we miss-its the Table Service that I was really looking forward to...(DS got sick when we were in Disneyland and we missed Napa Rose at the Grand Californian)-ok... so we've had three strikes-NO MORE ALLOWED-As God as my witness-it will never happen again...

I love that your having a good time solo and can't wait till your mom shows up...

(I am sorry about your feet and hope they feel better-that can be such a miserable feeling...)
Wow! No more strikes for you! I can't recommend Brown Derby enough, it's my favorite at Disney...well so far.

I love that picture. Where is that? It is so pretty.

I am really worried about the rain in August. We went one year in June and it rained alot and from the things I have looked at August has a higher average of rain fall than June.

I can tell you from what I remember from when we used to go in August it did rain just about every day but it was usually between 3 and 6 and it was usually done by 6, I think if I remember correctly. So not too much time and it was usually when we were back at the hotel eating. Usually it wasn't 3 hours though, like maybe an hour to an hour and a half so it shouldn't ruin your plans too much. I guess we'll both find out though very soon!!

I wouldn't worry too much. I think with the rain you never know. I went in late September 2 years ago, and it rained every day we were there. Even the CM's we talked to kept commenting on how crazy the weather was. My parents went about a week or two later and had one short rainfall the entire trip.

I went the last week of August last year and we had no problems with the rain. It rained a bit, but nothing out of the ordinary and certainly not continously.

That picture is near the statues in Hollywood Studios, on the side where Indiana Jones is. Does that make sense? It's really a pretty background.

Oh...Harry Potter was EXCELLENT! I really loved it. They did a great job with it I think. I was only a little disappointed that they left out one part or...they didn't do it like it was in the book but overall AWESOME.
