    my bday trip report march 3-4!

    we headed to DL for my bday trip march 3-4! my birthday isn't really until sunday, but i wanted to do the park early in the week hoping it would be less crowded. it was a little more crowded than i thought for a mon/tues...must be the nice weather! we had a room reserved at disney's grand californian hotel & spa. at check-in the CM gave me my bday pin and a b&w signed photo of minnie mouse in a white envelope with a happy birthday sticker on it! we spent most of the first day in our room (neil was sick).

    bed

    sink area

    standard view from balcony

    later in the afternoon we ate dinner at jazz kitchen express, grabbed a jamba juice and rode a few rides in DL. then back to the hotel for more rest (poor, sick neil)! later on we were hungry again so ordered room service...cheeseburger and apple cobbler off the late night menu. the cheeseburger is SO GOOD and served on a bed of fries...plenty enough for 2 people! i forgot to get a picture of the burger, but here's the cobbler (comes with vanilla ice cream) which was also very delicious!



    in the morning we did the chip & dale character breakfast at story teller's cafe which was EXCELLENT! great food, and all the characters came around (chip & dale, turk, brother bears and meeko)!

    breakfast buffet

    mickey waffles

    koda & noah

    our server, angelica, was so helpful and nice! the best server we've ever had...ever. then all the CMs came out and sang happy birthday to me with a cute cupcake!

    so cute!

    the rest of the day was spent in DCA and DL riding rides, exploring pirates lair, petting animals at big thunder ranch and taking character pics. and i got my free tortillas!

    this jack is a hottie!

    woody & jessie found coloring at big thunder ranch

    Thanks for the pics.

    Man, now I'm hungry.
    Yes, our world has indeed become a world of motion. We have engineered marvels that take us swiftly over land and sea, through the air, and into space itself. And still bolder and better ideas are yet to come. Ideas that will fulfill our age old dream to be free. Free in mind. Free in spirit. Free to follow the distant star of our ancestors to a brighter tomorrow. - World of Motion (1982-1996)

    Thanks for the report and happy birthday!

    I am going tomorrow for the weekend and was hoping the crowds might not be too bad but sounds like no such luck, eh?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Happy birthday! Sounds like you had a good time. Too bad Neil was sick, and now Noah is sick too.

    I can't wait for our trip in April!
