It was the longest lunch mission ever but it was so much fun!Love the pics with Chewie!
Sounds like you got up to a lot of good stuff on your mission to lunch!
Yay for princess meets!
Oh dear home learning sounds like quite the adventureMy quoting was interrupted by the 5th grader attempting to do remote learning behind me. It took me about a half hour to read that update with his incessant interruptions for literature homework help.
Please, Lord, I want this quarantine to be over!!!!!
In any case, your update was clearly a welcome distraction to THIS life I am living at the moment.
Love the selfies with Chewie And your amazing timing on the Jungle Cruise. I love Mobile Order more and more, and this is just another win for that!!
I'm holding onto it for the purpose of trading hahaha
Oh, him.Back row, 2nd from the left with darker fur really looks like one who would get on my nerves.
Yep. That totally sounds like him.He would probably try to explain to me how girls really shouldn't be trying to rule the galaxy.
I am not familiar with Wookie taxonomy.Well technically there are female Wookies....
Seems to fit.My senior quote in my high school yearbook did warn everyone about my intentions. It was from a Kesha song- "We are taking over, get used to it."
I think that sounds like a solid plan and something that should definitely be included in salary negotiations.Joining in! In my next life I am only taking jobs that send me to Disneyland for free.
Oh cool! My degree is in chemical engineering. My first job was as a process engineer and now I'm a project engineer, both in the same manufacturing facility. If she has any questions about engineering I would be more than happy to talk with her.My 16 year old DD is seriously considering majoring in Engineering. What type are you?
I definitely recommend doing the ABD at some point if you can, but I also think it's better to go to DL on your own first (I actually just wrote an article about this and I hope they publish it)! Even though WDW is home for me, I love Disneyland!!I would really love to do the Backstage Magic ABD you did, but I think we're going to have to been more of a budget. Someday though!
Oo that's fun. I've never seen them do anything like that but I'd like to.e and the CM would take turns picking one up and looking at the bottom for a sticker that said winner. If I picked it up first, I got the chance to do a pin trade. If the CM picked it up first then I was out of luck. But luck was with me and I picked up the winner first!
That's sad.I was actually surprised by how few character experiences had PhotoPass on this trip.
This is on my list of QS to try in DL! What exactly was the Tiger Tail?I like Bengal BBQ because you can get small portions of different things.
Sheesh if anyone gets paparazzi, you'd think it'd be the royalty.he hall didn’t have PhotoPass (I thought surely the princesses would have PhotoPass, but no)
It was the first time I've seen it to! Very fun and low key. I hope I run into more events like that.Oo that's fun. I've never seen them do anything like that but I'd like to.
It's like a baked cheesy breadstick. Sooo good. Not my picture (thanks google!) but this is what they look like:This is on my list of QS to try in DL! What exactly was the Tiger Tail?
You would think!!Sheesh if anyone gets paparazzi, you'd think it'd be the royalty.
Will do!That's awesome, good luck! Let us know here if they do!
Yeah it was super weird. I know in general that DL has less PP just randomly hanging out than at WDW, but I was surprised by the lack in the big character meets.I find it so weird that none of those characters had PP? I never realized they were more prevalent in WDW. But so far looks like a fun morning!
Really! Amazing what they'll put on apps these days. But then again, these are much more liberal times.I saw on the app that she was coming out in a bit.
Talk about perfect timing.I was worried I would miss Redd, but she was right at the exit when I got off!
[I look like such a fangirl here and she's just exuding cool confidence]
She asked if I was a mermaid and I said heck yes.
Next time take a selfie in the water.We talked about what color my fins are when I have them. I don’t remember what I said, but then we took a selfie
she said she had seen a lot of these magic mirrors around and that she must invest in one.
Diana Ross was there too?It was a supreme highlight.
I wonder if this place's popularity will increase or decrease over time.I got placed in the second row of the bar and couldn’t get the bartender’s attention, but after about 5 minutes a space opened up and I squeezed my way in.
Okay, might have to try that one.On my last journey to Oga’s I went for the Fuzzy Tauntaun, but this time I decided to go for the Spice Runner spiced cider (which I now realize is a Rise of Skywalker reference). It’s dyed bright red and very sweet, but definitely has some spices to it. That combination made me consider it an accidental Christmas drink.
I can't relate either... but it sounds plausible!they were talking about the numbing foam on the Fuzzy Tauntaun and someone said, “You feel it coming on, like an edible.” I can’t say I know the feeling, but I thought it was a funny comparison nonetheless.
Nah. It's all good. You're on vacation.I certainly never felt anyone else looking at me like it was weird that I was a grown woman drinking alone at a Star Wars bar in Disneyland.
No one??? What in the heck?This time when I got to the merge point there was no one there. At all. Not even in the standby line. It was just me and the CM.
Woot!After a couple of minutes one other person came up the single rider line but still no standby guests. The CM said it was weird because the ride was still running. But no one came and he let the two of us ride by ourselves.
Ah! A downside. Still... I'd rather get to try pilot and do poorly, than not try it at all.So not only did I escape being an engineer, but I got to pilot for the first time! It was so much fun, but since we didn’t have engineers we did pretty bad because no one could fix anything.
I actually have a printout of this photo tacked up at my desk.
I haven't had one either...That’s right, before November 6, 2020 I had never had a Disneyland churro.
I'm so annoyed with myself for not having one...Holy sugar Batman, these things are incredible. The perfect combination of a crispy outside and a doughy inside. Perfectly sweet and satisfying.
<sigh> I've heard this a few times now...Now, I’ve had a churro at WDW world before and I can certainly say without question that the DL ones are indeed better.
Nor have I. Interesting.this set was the flag retreat ceremony, something I’ve never actually seen.
What a great idea! Did they like it?Then I booked my behind over to the Disneyland Hotel for a meetup with my coworkers at Trader Sams. They didn’t have park tickets and I thought it would be a fun place to introduce them to Disneyland.
Pretty!I settled on the Krakatoa and pretty soon this little beauty was in front of me:
Nope! I like Trader Sam's, but can't drink 90% of the stuff they serve.Wow, such a good drink! And so, so much rum.
I would too. I like that mug.I use the mug all the time, too. It’s my go-to Coke Zero vessel at home.
Nooo… You're supposed to shoot with it!
It was so awesome to really take my time and play with settings and just generally hang out.
While eating I realized I had let a Haunted Mansion FP expire and I also remembered I had let a BTMRR FP expire earlier on. But I was fine with it, because I was going with the flow and doing what I wanted in the moment, which was incredible.
Oh, sure. But try going to another country here on Earth...(isn’t it crazy how you can go off planet so fast these days??)
Like this one the best.
That's exactly what I like to do when I'm in any bar It drives Rob crazy because he'll be asking me something, and I'm like, "hold on a second, I'm listening to what they're saying over there..."I spent some time sipping and looking around and bopping to the music (and eavesdropping).
Ah, yes, THE LOOK. I've been on the receiving end of that, too. When I was in WDW in December, I took a stroll through World of Disney without the two boys, and got myself a nice $40 pillow I even had it shipped to home, so I walked out with nothing in my hands!I decided that this was the trip I would splurge for a souvenir mug (usually Jon is with me and gives me the look when I want to do something like this).
But then again, these are much more liberal times.
Truly! I walked out and BOOM there she was!Talk about perfect timing.
But that would require in getting in the pirates water...Next time take a selfie in the water.
I did not have to look that up, thank you very muchDiana Ross was there too?
I see it staying pretty steady, just because of the drink offerings. Even though it's annoying to try to get in I see myself making a stop every trip to try something new. It's a fun vibe!I wonder if this place's popularity will increase or decrease over time.
It was good! Exceptionally sweet for a cider, though (and that's coming from someone who loves a sweet cider)Okay, might have to try that one.
You're on vacation.
I wouldn't say I quite hate being an engineer but it certainly isn't the most fun job of the 3I hated being an engineer.
I'm so annoyed with myself for not having one...
YES you do!I need to try one, next time. Assuming there's a next time, some time.
They did! It was a pretty calm evening so there wasn't as much of the typical Trader Sam's shenanigans but it was nice and the drinks were great!What a great idea! Did they like it?
I think I've started a dangerously expensive habit here.I would too. I like that mug.
For real, it's one of my new favorites.Best feeling in the world!
But try going to another country here on Earth...
Thanks! I took & edited soooo many. Those red lights were tricky to get right.Like this one the best.
Yes! If I'm going to be squeezed in next to strangers you better believe I'm going to listen to what they're saying.and I'm like, "hold on a second, I'm listening to what they're saying over there..."
What a splurge! I realized on one of our recent trips that I can suggest to Jon to go take a break at the resort so I can 'take photos' and once he leaves I just go shopping (but I also take some photos). It works out for both of us hahahaWhen I was in WDW in December, I took a stroll through World of Disney without the two boys, and got myself a nice $40 pillow I even had it shipped to home, so I walked out with nothing in my hands!
