Really? Tape? That's crazy! I guess I could see it being a concern about tape ending up in unwanted places around the park, but they actively ban selfie sticks and even publish that and I still see them in the parks. But they made a big deal about tape?
Evidently any kind of tape is not allowed. I just checked their prohibited items list and they have changed it. The list used to be exhaustive and even said "cremated remains" on the prohibited items. Now they just have a blanket statement of something like "anything we deem unsafe".

Good luck! I'm glad it at least got you through the day and didn't make you really have to miss out on any plans. Hopefully you can get it figured out and fixed!
It's been two and a half months and we still haven't had time to ride it around the neighborhood and get it to malfunction. :headache:

Looks like a pretty awesome day, thus far. Anything else is just going to be icing on the cake.
It really was!

Ya, we're still on sale for sure - come visit 😀
I would love to, but our dance card is filling up, 2020 is pretty much booked now!

Oooh, this looks yummy! All the foods look good!
It was very good. I think I need to go back!

That's a pretty sweet deal!
Works out nicely as long as the Accountant can spin it.

I dunno, he looks more like a Guido to me.
:lmao: If you say so.... what movie is Guido from?

:thumbsup2

Always a great choice.
::yes:: I see a visit there in the nearish future when an International Super Couple come to visit.

That's good to know.
Evidently others do not share my view.

:sad2: Corporate Disney is annoying.
Disney for uber profit is annoying.

Um...no thanks. Hopefully the new ride will be as awesome as they say it is.
I hope so!

And you can make endless pupu platter jokes!
Well, I guess you can....

But I thought there wasn't much to do...:scratchin
But that doesn't mean the two things there are to do aren't fun! I mean, it's cool to take newbies to the Cantina. I'm doing that twice next month.

My theory is that everyone was so worried about the crowds that no one actually went.
My theory is they just overestimated how many people wanted to lose their shirts on over price merch vs actual ride experiences.

Really? Tape? That one baffles me.
I know. Me too :confused3

So, the good version, then. :rolleyes1
Yes. ::yes::

I like that touch. Neat.
On subsequent trips a few more were pointed out to me!

Time off for bad behavior!
And I still have to take it for a scrape around the neighborhood to make it error.

Ooh, those look really good.

:worship: Even better! That sounds amazing!
They are! Which means that they will take them off the menu soon. :sad2:

    Yeah! Familiar faces in a familiar place.
    You need to come and join in with those faces!

    I remember that!
    Yes, I do have them somewhat often!

    Looks good! I could do with the fries right now!
    I could probably use some too!

    Or better have this one. That looks DELISH!!!
    This is delish! I've had it quite a few times since then as well!

    You need to make a return trip!

    Loving the updates! Great pics!
    Thanks! :thumbsup2

    And I am sorry about sweet Alto. :(
    :sad1:

    Ugh... ongoing...
    It never ends.....

    YAY!!! I'm one of the lucky ones! Always love hanging with you two!!
    And you get to again!

    I love to stand for a bit and just watch her!
    Yeah, my parents weren't at all interested.

    One of my very favorite places to sit!
    Don't you get wet?

    WHOA!! Exceptional!
    Yeah, I've only had that happen one other time!

    It was a perfect room for us! Thank you again for all the work and care you put out for us!
    I'm glad that you liked it.

    This is a truism.
    And sadly it's becoming the park with the most headliners in rides....

    LOL!!! I've done that a few times.... "Where has this been all my life?!"
    I keep doing that at the Disney food festivals! :lmao:

    I think that's the choice I'd have gone with too. Looks so yummy!
    Perhaps I'll have to try that one someday.

    They were only kinda checking. Our tablemates had been there an hour and still hadn't gotten their bill.
    Interesting how they do the checks so different on the two Batuus

    And I saw she did. Still miffed. I wanted the Rancor Mug more than anything and they were gone. Both parks.
    Well, we are going the day you fly down and if they don't have them then, we are going about 10 days later.

    I see that they were back in stock. I wanted a Nautilus SOOOOo bad. Every. Single. Mug. was sold out. #peeved
    Wow! That sucks! Just about every mug was in stock when we were there.

    Come to me, My Little Beauts! Love those suckers.
    Best way to eat veggies ever!

    As it SHOULD be done!
    :laughing:

    Preach it, Sis.
    :lmao:

    Ya think...?! :rolleyes:
    Pretty much everyone that I've sat with at a table has said that.

    Crap, shoulda got that one too!
    There's always November!

    Oh to be sitting at that table!
    Yeah.....about that.....but you were there in September!

    Heaven in a bowl!
    She enjoyed it!

    Caught back up again! Can't wait to DL with you again in 2 months!

    Jill in CO
    Yeah, we need to figure out how that "weekend" is going to work....probably not on a public forum.....

    So you are going to DL at Christmastime? Ah ...... must be AWESOME to be able to go back so often. You are one lucky lady, dearest Jill! :flower3: Still keeping my fingers crossed for DLRP with you next year. :goodvibes
    A quick trip for too much eating and drinking......

    Yusss!!!

    Love pie.
    Well we need to make a list of places to go when you come down for your "annual" visit! :laughing:

    Rub a dub dub, Alison in a tub.
    And my walkin is still not fixed. :sad2: I got so desperate that we cleaned all the boxes and storage stuff out of the jacuzzi tub in the hall bathroom.

    No. Just a spin on "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak."

    Which I had not idea was a quote from the bible!
    I would not have known that either, being the heathen that I am.

    Nah. She's just fast. Indy 500.
    :lmao:

    Actually... not nearly as well as I'd like.
    I haven't talked to her enough yet.
    But would like to.
    Well somewhere in these threads i saw you saying something about being overdue for your annual visit. :rolleyes1

    Ah! Okay, got it. :)
    I even took pictures on this last trip for you!

    Which is maybe not so great... if you wound
    up being on it when it went down and people
    wound up being stuck on it.
    Funny you should mention something like that.

    What happened?
    Lot C (where I have parked my car longer than I've known Fran) has been turned into a satellite rental car location. I believe that you even mentioned something about a cluster$*@% when picking up or returning a rental car from LAX. They are streamlining everything so that there is only one bus for rental cars, and all the companies are in a centralized location. That way instead of 10 companies with shuttles driving around the terminals there will be one central one. And they're going to put in a fake-o-rail eventually.

    Nice! Hope you're happy with it. :)
    I like it! Both our new cars are nice. I'm trying to keep Fran from trashing them like our old car, and it's a losing battle. :sad2:

    Question. How do you feel about not being able to use resale at future DVC resorts like the Riviera? Has that changed anything for you?
    Well they actually made a similar rule about 7-8 years ago, and I purchased my BCV and BRV (used to be WLV) just before the restrictions kicked in. I've got 888 points that I CAN use for the Riviera, because the rules are moving forward from a set date and not retroactive. If they are retroactive, i still have 290 points that were purchased direct from Disney that I could use there. Besides I haven't seen anything about the Riviera that makes me overly excited to stay there. I want to stay in the Copper Creek cabins more.

    I like it.
    I thought I quoted about the print you wanted... and I'm completely not surprised you did! It's perfect!
    We need to play museum curator, and rotate our collection so it is on display!

    Yum! Yes please!
    I can't wait to have it again in just a few weeks when we stay out there with some DIS friends!

    I enjoyed doing that. Something I've yet to do in Florida.
    You know I haven't either!

    This place was on my list, but... chicken dinner!
    It's best as a snack option, for when you just want something little.

    Interesting. I had a different take on it.
    I'll be curious to hear yours, although I vaguely remember reading something in more detail about your experience.

    Yes. Not cheap at all!
    Maybe instead of Batuu it should have been called Buxtoo!

    Would I like it?
    Possibly. It wasn't sweet though.

    Yum! That looks good.
    It was one of my favorites until they had a menu change about a month ago. It's still on the menu, but theybadded some better stuff. Coming soon in an update near you.

    Hmmm... interesting toppings. Not sure if I approve or not.
    Only one way to be sure, of course. :)
    Mark says pineapple on a burger is awesome.

    How was that?
    Which? Tortilla Jo's or Salt and Straw?

    Really! I didn't know this. And am surprised!
    So was everyone else!

    Sounds wonderful! :)
    It was! :)

    1. Weird. Why can't you bring in some tape? :confused3
    2. Did she win?
    I have no idea. On both counts.

    So she had or didn't have the tape?
    I plead the fifth. (If you know what that means).

    Still want to go to the wagon for one. Some day. :)
    I had one just two months ago. It was basically identical to the Corn Dog Palace except there was no cheese dog option.

    Not sure about the Kefta but the Kebab sure looks good. :)
    I really like the kefta. Could be that in my old age I like things that are easier to chew. Ground meat vs. Steak chunks.

    You ride two by two! I didn't know that!
    Did we not ride it when you were here?

    Nice group and nice shot of said group. :)
    Thanks! :blush:

    Those look amazing! And with that sauce????
    Yeah, they are pretty good. I'm afraid they might take them off the menu.

    something I could see myself doing.
    Another thing for the list when you come back!

    I've been kinda MIA, still working on the pictures for the new trip.

    Ohh replies!

    This means an update is coming yay! popcorn::
    Hopefully. At least over here. I'm not quite ready for the new TR yet.

    Huh.
    tbh, I don't remember if it was a mess or not... I do remember being stuck in traffic going to the terminal.

    They did? (the rule 7-8 years ago) I didn't know that.
    I did a DVC tour of WL while I was there last trip.
    Thought briefly about re-sale, but...

    Still pondering. But leaning towards "no"... I see myself doing other things than Disney a bit more in the future.
    I can't wait to have it again in just a few weeks when we stay out there with some DIS friends!
    Is that with Liesa? I saw just up above that you mentioned November?
    It's best as a snack option, for when you just want something little.
    No! I wants ALL THE CHICKEN!!!!!
    I'll be curious to hear yours, although I vaguely remember reading something in more detail about your experience.
    It'll probably be in my second chapter of the new TR... which I've got the first chapter about half written.
    Maybe instead of Batuu it should have been called Buxtoo!
    :laughing: Perfect!
    Mark says pineapple on a burger is awesome.
    Well, Mark is an authority on burgers, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
    But so am I, and will just have to see for myself. ;)
    Which? Tortilla Jo's or Salt and Straw?
    Salt and Straw.
    I have no idea. On both counts.
    Ask her and tell her pkondz wants to know. :)
    I plead the fifth. (If you know what that means).
    I do.
    (From memory, no Googling)
    Basically it's your right to not say anything so as not to incriminate yourself.

    Right?
    Did we not ride it when you were here?
    I don't think so.
    Another thing for the list when you come back!
    :laughing: I hope you're keeping track!
    You're right it does. I'm oddly OK with that! :laughing:

    Well they were supposed to come out the week we got back from WDW, but the part they had was broken. Now they're scheduled for next week. But this week I broke down and cleaned all the boxes and stuff out of the jacuzzi tub in the hall bathroom. It's not a walk in tub, but it is a tub nonetheless. I've been in there every night since I cleaned it out.

    And fire and brimstone shall rain down upon thee!!!!

    Which sounds pretty good if it's cold out.
    Which it IS NOT here. :sad2:

    Semi-annual?
    More like bi-annual....

    Huh.
    tbh, I don't remember if it was a mess or not... I do remember being stuck in traffic going to the terminal.
    There's always traffic somewhere here!

    They did? (the rule 7-8 years ago) I didn't know that.
    I did a DVC tour of WL while I was there last trip.
    Thought briefly about re-sale, but...

    Still pondering. But leaning towards "no"... I see myself doing other things than Disney a bit more in the future.
    The rule from 7-8 years ago was that you couldn't use resale points to trade out for hotel stays (at non DVC hotels) or towards Disney Cruises. I generally don't do that anyways. I rent out my points and make twice as much as you would get towards a cruise.

    Is that with Liesa? I saw just up above that you mentioned November?
    Well Liesa is tagging along, but it's actually with @Flossbolna and her husband.

    It'll probably be in my second chapter of the new TR... which I've got the first chapter about half written.
    I've got just about my whole TR written, minus some little tweaks in the verbage and to accommodate certain pictures. It's getting the pictures resized, in order and such that takes all the time!

    Well, Mark is an authority on burgers, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
    But so am I, and will just have to see for myself. ;)
    Personally I'm not a huge fan of pineapple on burgers, but a lot of people seem to like it.

    Salt and Straw.
    The ice cream was of very high quality. I enjoyed my flavor which I believe was salted caramel something. They had a lot of really weird flavors there though....I'm more of a traditionalist when it comes to Ice Cream.

    Ask her and tell her pkondz wants to know. :)

    I do.
    (From memory, no Googling)
    Basically it's your right to not say anything so as not to incriminate yourself.

    Right?
    So guess what? I'm not going to tell you on a public forum. You can wait until your bi-annual visit! :laughing:

    I don't think so.
    Huh. I could have sworn that I convinced you to do it because it was way smoother than WDW's version.

    :laughing: I hope you're keeping track!
    Sort of....I'll remember the places I want to go! :laughing:

    Since my last bonus feature update I've been to the world and back. I’ll be starting that TR pretty soon. I think I’ve caught up on everyone’s TRs and I’ve got this update taken care of so that one will be next on the agenda. It’s been a wild time since we got back. We had a Masquerade Ball, two band performances, and in the process of the performances I put my back out. I have not felt pain like this in any other time in my life that I can remember. Every day I wake up thinking today is the day I feel better. And then I get out of bed.


    No real IRL updates. The 3 bedroom unit is still vacant and last Tuesday the tenant in Apartment 2 turned in her keys. It's a lousy time of year to have vacancies, but what can we do? Just hope that some good tenants come along soon!


    Oh well back to the bonus features!


    Two weeks after my last Bonus Feature update, @skier_pete and his family were in town. I knew that I wouldn't have the oomph for another long day like we did with Jill and the Jenny fam, so instead I met them out at the parks around 2 o'clock. They had just returned to the park after their midday break and were having lunch at the Cucamonga Cucina. After lunch, while his wife and daughter waited in the shade, Pete and I rode the Incredicoaster.



    All of us went to ride RSR.



    He convinced his family to ride guardians but they were one and done.



    He and I rode it again. It was very hot out and I needed a break. Everyone else agreed and we stopped for a drink and some AC.



    Then we rode Soarin which was still over CA. So much better than the new one.

    We hopped over to DL and went for a spin on Buzz lightyear, and I think we rode one other thing somewhere in there, but I can't remember. We grabbed seats for the Electrical parade and Pete picked us up some corn dogs to eat while we waited.

    The parade was great, but since I took pictures just a couple weeks before, I just sat back and relaxed. From our vantage point we also had a good view of the fireworks. I’ll show you some of the pics I took two weeks ago now since this update has been light on pictures.





































    After the parade we got to see the fireworks too! By the time it was all over, I was all tuckered out. Even with starting around 2PM it had been a long day filled with rides and fun. I said good night to Pete and his family. They had a fun week ahead of them with more park time and the D23 Expo too!

    OMG! DO YOU NEED US TO CALL THE EMTS TO GET YOU OUT???????
    Which it IS NOT here. :sad2:
    I took a quick peek.

    You're high this week is mid 80s. Nice.
    Ours is slightly lower with a high on Thursday of 39!! Oh boy!


    :sad:
    More like bi-annual....

    It's your State Sport!
    Well Liesa is tagging along, but it's actually with @Flossbolna and her husband.
    Ah!
    I've got just about my whole TR written, minus some little tweaks in the verbage and to accommodate certain pictures. It's getting the pictures resized, in order and such that takes all the time!
    Yeah, the photos take a lot of time. Some more than others.
    Interesting how our writing styles differ so much, though.
    I never write until I've gotten all the photos for an update edited, uploaded to photobucket and downloaded to the DIS.
    Well... most of them. Sometimes I am in the middle of writing and decide I need another photo for some reason or other.
    The ice cream was of very high quality. I enjoyed my flavor which I believe was salted caramel something. They had a lot of really weird flavors there though....I'm more of a traditionalist when it comes to Ice Cream.
    Add it to the list!
    So guess what? I'm not going to tell you on a public forum. You can wait until your bi-annual visit! :laughing:
    You really want me to come down, don't you?
    (The feeling is mutual. :))
    Huh. I could have sworn that I convinced you to do it because it was way smoother than WDW's version.
    I really don't remember? I'll have to ask K. Her memory is better than mine.
    Sort of....I'll remember the places I want to go! :laughing:
    :laughing: Good enough!
    We had a Masquerade Ball, two band performances, and in the process of the performances I put my back out. I have not felt pain like this in any other time in my life that I can remember. Every day I wake up thinking today is the day I feel better. And then I get out of bed.
    Oh, no!!!!
    I'm so sorry to hear that.
    Throwing your back out is never fun. I haven't done it (well, not to the point where I couldn't move, anyways... some tweaks though) in a couple years and I really don't want to again.
    The 3 bedroom unit is still vacant and last Tuesday the tenant in Apartment 2 turned in her keys. It's a lousy time of year to have vacancies, but what can we do? Just hope that some good tenants come along soon!
    Good luck with that.
    :laughing:
    Yep. Driving in the dessert is thirsty work. :)
    He convinced his family to ride guardians but they were one and done.
    Not a fan of drops, I take it.
    Then we rode Soarin which was still over CA. So much better than the new one.
    ::yes::
    I’ll show you some of the pics I took two weeks ago now since this update has been light on pictures.
    Got some good ones. Although they spelled "honour" wrong again.

    And sadly it's becoming the park with the most headliners in rides....
    Then they'd better up their game. However, here are the winners:

    HBD- Cobb Salad
    Ronto Roaster Hot Dog (yes, I'd get it again)
    Prime Time Chicken Dinner (you can get food at the Tune-In as well)
    Woody's- not tried it yet, but the Tochos are getting great reviews as is the cheese sammie and tomato soup
    Baseline has that nice pretzel

    Well, we are going the day you fly down and if they don't have them then, we are going about 10 days later.
    here's crossing my fingers!

    Wow! That sucks! Just about every mug was in stock when we were there.
    Of course they were.

    Yeah.....about that.....but you were there in September!
    But not with those great peeps!

    Well technically you aren't drinking and drinking as you aren't anywhere near the drivers seat :)

    He convinced his family to ride guardians but they were one and done.

    Mine is wondering if they can manage to get all of the songs 😀

    We grabbed seats for the Electrical parade and Pete picked us up some corn dogs to eat while we waited.
    Yumm! They are generally pretty darn good!

    Some of my earliest Disneyland memories are these two fellows!

I knew that I wouldn't have the oomph for another long day like we did with Jill and the Jenny fam, so instead I met them out at the parks around 2 o'clock. They had just returned to the park after their midday break and were having lunch at the Cucamonga Cucina. After lunch, while his wife and daughter waited in the shade, Pete and I rode the Incredicoaster.



    All of us went to ride RSR.



    He convinced his family to ride guardians but they were one and done.



    He and I rode it again. It was very hot out and I needed a break. Everyone else agreed and we stopped for a drink and some AC.



    Then we rode Soarin which was still over CA. So much better than the new one.

    We hopped over to DL and went for a spin on Buzz lightyear, and I think we rode one other thing somewhere in there, but I can't remember. We grabbed seats for the Electrical parade and Pete picked us up some corn dogs to eat while we waited.

    The parade was great, but since I took pictures just a couple weeks before, I just sat back and relaxed. From our vantage point we also had a good view of the fireworks. I’ll show you some of the pics I took two weeks ago now since this update has been light on pictures.





































    After the parade we got to see the fireworks too! By the time it was all over, I was all tuckered out. Even with starting around 2PM it had been a long day filled with rides and fun. I said good night to Pete and his family. They had a fun week ahead of them with more park time and the D23 Expo too!
    That was such a fun afternoon. We really got a lot done that day even where we had a 3 hour break and then spending the afternoon with you. DW and DD still talk about how much they HATED Guardians of the Galaxy. Poor DD16 was practically shivering from fright on the ride. I thought it was great though - the ride not them being afraid. So glad we got to ride twice and got two different show scenes. It was definitely a warm one but the break in the afternoon made it tolerable.

    I also agree that Soarin' over CA is better than World of Soarin' - mostly for me all the CGI stuff distracts me from the "real" of some scenes. That and the wonky Eiffel Tower when seen from the edges.

    The ride you missed was we also rode Star Tours after Buzz Lightyear but before the parade. We really got a lot of rides in that day! It was great fun to spend that time with you.

    OMG! DO YOU NEED US TO CALL THE EMTS TO GET YOU OUT???????
    Funny. Funny. Funny.

    I took a quick peek.

    You're high this week is mid 80s. Nice.
    Ours is slightly lower with a high on Thursday of 39!! Oh boy!
    We're still in the 80s. Hoping we get down into the 70s later this week when I'm back at the parks.

    It's your State Sport!
    :sad2:

    Yeah, the photos take a lot of time. Some more than others.
    Interesting how our writing styles differ so much, though.
    I never write until I've gotten all the photos for an update edited, uploaded to photobucket and downloaded to the DIS.
    Well... most of them. Sometimes I am in the middle of writing and decide I need another photo for some reason or other.
    Well with my advanced age, I can't remember little nuances about the trip when I go to write it up any more. About four years ago I started taking notes, at first I used WordPad or Notes or something on the phone. Then I discovered Google Docs, and since then I just write about what happened in the document. Then when I add in the pictures, I can expand upon what I was thinking about when I get to that point at home on my computer (or more often than not on my phone :sad2:)

    I'm not as witty as you or Liesa and I don't come up with little back stories behind my visits. I'm more of a "tell it like it was" person, with some sarcasm and cynicism thrown in for good measure.

    You really want me to come down, don't you?
    (The feeling is mutual. :))
    I always enjoy having my DIS friends visit! Especially the fun ones who come bearing exotic chocolate!

    Oh, no!!!!
    I'm so sorry to hear that.
    Throwing your back out is never fun. I haven't done it (well, not to the point where I couldn't move, anyways... some tweaks though) in a couple years and I really don't want to again.
    Oh. My. God. I don't think I've had that much pain at any point in my adult life that I can remember. Probably in my entire life. It was just a few minutes of improper posture that screwed me up for nearly 10 days. I don't handle pain well, and I was quite unhappy and unproductive in that time period.

    Good luck with that.
    Still waiting. :rolleyes2

    Yep. Driving in the dessert is thirsty work. :)
    Must be all that chocolate.... :rolleyes1

    Not a fan of drops, I take it.
    I guess not. They didn't want to ride Incredicoaster either.

    Got some good ones. Although they spelled "honour" wrong again.


    :rolleyes:
    Silly Canadian. :laughing:

    I just asked Kay and she said we didn't ride Space Mountain in DL. She remembers when we rode it (previously) in WDW, but didn't even know there was one in DL.
    Interesting. Well there's something else we need to add to that list. So far I have pies from Polly's, Burgers and milkshakes at Dales, and now Space Mountain.

    Then they'd better up their game. However, here are the winners:

    HBD- Cobb Salad
    Yes, this is definitely good and you can get it in the lounge, no?

    Ronto Roaster Hot Dog (yes, I'd get it again)
    I didn't find it to be all that....

    Prime Time Chicken Dinner (you can get food at the Tune-In as well)
    Yes! This I love!

    Woody's- not tried it yet, but the Tochos are getting great reviews as is the cheese sammie and tomato soup
    I would be anxious to try both of these too! Next trip we are not making a ton of reservations and doing more QS or walk ups at less popular restaurants, plus the Festival of the Arts booths.

    Baseline has that nice pretzel
    I'm not a huge pretzel fan....

    here's crossing my fingers!
    I'm sure we'll get it for you.

    Of course they were.
    :sad2:

    But not with those great peeps!
    True!

    Sooo jealous! Looks like you guys had a ball.
    We had a very fun time!

    Well technically you aren't drinking and drinking as you aren't anywhere near the drivers seat :)
    Exactly!

    Mine is wondering if they can manage to get all of the songs 😀
    I'm willing to try for that!

    Yumm! They are generally pretty darn good!
    So many great things to eat there!

    Some of my earliest Disneyland memories are these two fellows!
    Funny my earliest memories of DL were running away from this parade to ride the rides while everyone was on Main Street! :laughing:

    We did get a lot done. I was exhausted when Fran picked me up that night! The mid day break was definitely good for our stamina!

    I also agree that Soarin' over CA is better than World of Soarin' - mostly for me all the CGI stuff distracts me from the "real" of some scenes. That and the wonky Eiffel Tower when seen from the edges.
    I totally agree. I will generally wait to get the upper middle row rather than have to see that.

    The ride you missed was we also rode Star Tours after Buzz Lightyear but before the parade. We really got a lot of rides in that day! It was great fun to spend that time with you.
    Ah, thanks for filling in that gap in my memory! And I didn't really even have that much to drink!
