The snow looks beautiful! Wish we'd get some like that here. It never seems to stick around long.

Your trips are getting close. Woo Hoo I am so excited for you all!

We are thinking of planning a trip for April. Yeah...I know, not far off...I got to get going. My idea is a special trip for the 55 anniveresary of Disneyland this year. My DH met Walt Disney when he was a child. Has a picture of himself with his twin and older brother with Walt sitting talking to them with his arms around the three little boys. What could be more perfect then The Walk with Walt tour. How much is the tour and when can I make a reservation? TIA Have a magical wonderful love filled time.

That is so cool! I'm jealous

The Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour is I think $64/pp, but they have discounts available...I used my Disney Visa and paid $104.20 for 2. You can make a reservation for it 1 month prior. Exactly 1 month. Not 4 weeks, not 30 days, 1 month.

My Mom had asked me if they were one and the same...I guess that answers that one! I'm really excited about that now!

I haven't read further than this but we love brunch @ Storyteller's ~ I always order from the menu *and share with DD* I also prefer having food brought to me. Be prepared for no face characters just furs @ Storyteller's. If you're still going to STC ~ I suggest the Banana Stuffed French Toast or the Buttermilk Griddle Cakes ~ YUM!

Have you ever had Tonga Toast at Kona (WDW)? If the Banana Stuffed French Toast is similar, my boyfriend will flip (he loves Tonga Toast!)

Here's a picture of it:

Here's a picture of it:
Hmmm, just might have to try the DL version. Great picture, makes me hungry for it. I do know what you mean about it being heavy, especially the Polynesian's room service. They gave us two big pieces, DH was going to share along with his Big Kahona breakfest. He is the king of french toast. Guess what...he didn't like it all! I was stuffed!

I'll be sure to take a picture of the banana stuffed toast at Storyteller's if we get it! I can't believe they give you TWO with room service!

And from what I can remember of that dream, you got tear off tickets for a fast pass. But we were in line for Small World (except it was more like Splash Mountain...a thrill ride) and they wouldn't take the fast pass because it was a short line. I remember in my dream thinking, "this isn't right, it's supposed to go outside." The next thing the boat went outside and I went, "oh good, I was right." Totally normal right??



And goofycathy: have a great trip!!!

Just stumbled onto this Thread

Kelly,
I listen to the Podcasts and check out the boards but NEVER post. Well that just changed when I stumbled across this thread. We are in the exact same situation. Been going to WDW since 75 almost every year, DVC members, and listen to just about every worthy podcast for stress release. Never been to the Land and that changes on the 17th! I have ben trying to do my homework like all WDW fan does and the more I dive into it the more I get the feeling your supposed to take a bit more SoCAL laid back appraoch. We are fired up! Who knows we may cross paths while there. Glad you posted, there is some good advice from some Vets on here. If you can tell me how to post "rookie" a photo, I will send one just in case we end up in the trun sites at the same time.

I feel so honored!

I can't even describe how excited I am to go to the original! It's so neat we'll be there at the same time, it'll be a first timer's convention.

You need 10 posts to send messages, and I think also to post pictures. I load all of mine into photobucket, then if you hover over the thumbnail of the picture on photobucket, you'll see a drop down of links and one of them is an "IMG" code. Just copy and paste that code and it should post!
