    "Some Dumbo ride":rotfl2::rotfl:

    That's pretty neat that you found that journal, it had to be really fun for you to read it and take that journey down memory lane. And it sounds like you were having fun airplane adventures long before a kid came into the picture.:lmao:

    It was wild to hear about your rides on attractions that aren't in the parks anymore. World of Motion, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, etc.

    I hope you have a great time on your upcoming trip and enjoy AoA. That's pretty impressive, having a Cast Member call you to ask about specific requests. :thumbsup2

    Jumping right on in from your last update if you don't mind!

    Oooh never heard of this but will have to remember this for next time!



    Wow she looks so little here. Time is flying for sure!
    I'm pretty sure this is the best window display in all of the Disneyland Resort!

    Ugh i'm so, so, so, SO upset they got rid of the Paint the Night parade! The best parade! And the song was so catchy. Waaaah!

    Right? I totally agree. This ride for me, is just not an 'every trip' ride.

    I've seen so many people get right back in line after they have exited in this queue, it's so easy to do, especially if there's a gap in the line.

    Now Indy is an 'every trip' ride for me for sure!

    Seriously! Best solo night ever! Pirates would be the best ride to go on by yourself for sure, wow!

    Yay you left today, have so much fun!

    Uhhh whaaa??

    NO way?!? Dang, this is pretty darn awesome that you got a free stay from this!
    I was alive! Not walking probably, but I was fully alive!

    I have been following along and just caught up on the most recent post, of your 7-year old self report, which is a great memory!

    Amazingact21 mentioned it above, but I too also giggled, when reading "some Dumbo ride".

    Just a quick mention on one of your previous updates, that I didn't comment on when reading, was, I love love love the fact you had some "alone" time at Disneyland.

    (Although I don't have kids) I am almost coming up with ways to get my own time in Disneyland without my DH on our upcoming trip hehe.

    But truly, your time looked epic, especially your picture on Splash!

    Enjoy on your current trip!

    I know it's because all I see of Izzy are your trip report photos, but how is she tall enough to ride Space Mountain!?!? Isn't it great when you can all ride the rides together. It's like a whole new experience!.

    My DS19 wouldn’t ride it until he was 12. Good for her. ( mine was scared of any dark rides when he was little )

    Ahh, great photos! I know it's already been said, but my mind is blown that Izzy can ride the coasters now. I just can't wrap my head around that fact...

    This certainly sounds like a case of the customer recovery being far greater than the customer inconvenience. I hope you have an awesome trip!!!

    Well, I'm used to writing 7 year old writing and I have to say your 7 year old writing is easier to read than DS's. :rotfl2: Awesome trip report! The good old days! My first Disney trip was that same year. :thumbsup2

    Pro tip: If you're going to lean down to talk to your kid at the same time they randomly decide to jump in the air, be sure to wait until your last Disney day.

    Yep, that's my eye right now.

    Anyway, got home late last night and glad to have this "recovery day" today. My step-mom just brought Bailey home and I'll unpack, grocery shop, etc. My to-do list also includes making trip notes before I forget everything (since I'm back logged on writing my reports). We had a great time!!

    Oh no!! That's terrible! I'm sure it doesn't feel too great. But hopefully it'll heal quickly. And you're right, the timing could have been much worse. On a positive note: welcome home!
