  • Sat, 12:23: Just strolling...don't think I need to ride Soarin again enough to either wait in line or pull a FastPass.
  • Sat, 12:24: Wandering in Hollywoodland: replica Dumbo animation art in concrete at the Off The Page store entrance
  • Sat, 13:17: Ride Mike and Sulley to the rescue--ride rumored on way out to build Marvel-based land. Roz in last scene was doing live guest interaction
  • Sat, 15:31: Morning coolth is gone, had enough sun and pavement in DCA for now. Retreated to room with iced tea and pumpkin twi…
  • Sat, 20:44: Spent the afternoon on a nap, then work--prep for next week. Will probably do the same tomorrow PM. Off to find dinner.
  • Sat, 21:03: Found a table at GC Hearthstone Lounge, not inside where it's hopping with pre-dinner drinking parties, but at a terrace table just outside
  • Sat, 21:05: One other party eating out here, still quieter than inside. Traffic from pool and occasional cast/maintenance folks is quite tolerable.
  • Sat, 21:12: Wagyu beef sliders with prepared and arugula, subbed cheddar for the bleu cheese. Glass of Shiraz
  • Sat, 21:59: That was a lovely dinner, despite a few bugs and the passing foot traffic. Lots of Pokemon activity, too--2 new species at one meal!
  • Sat, 22:00: Off to Disneyland to catch the regular fireworks.
  • Sat, 22:28: Arrived just as the SoundSensational parade ended. Main St is a solid mass of people headed into the park. Might be the usual weekend DL..
  • Sat, 22:50: Swing band playing in Royal Theatre, currently playing "Sway", which I know from the GaFilk house band's repertoire. Good number of dancers.
  • Sun, 00:26: I wandered a bit but it's crowded so not pleasant. Found a curb spot on Main St and sat to wait. About 9:05 they made everyone stand
  • Sun, 00:28: So am now in the horde of people waiting for Fantasy in the Sky to start. Probably would have been better to get into the Hub, oh well
  • Sun, 00:28: Am spending time guessing if all of the adults in front will have a shoulder kid once the fireworks start...
  • Sun, 10:43: Guess I didn't post after fireworks, as I shuffled out with the crowd. Nice show, not as themed as many but still links music and fireworks
  • Sun, 10:44: In front of the closed DCA gates. at7:40 for 8 am early opening.
  • Sun, 10:47: 7:45 the gates open, they pick a family to open the park, start checking the rest of us for early credentials (room key, etc).
  • Sun, 10:51: Very quickly they did a countdown, then started letting people thru turnstiles. Crowd moves to ropes at the Carthay Circle area until 8
  • Sun, 10:52: I'm headed to Radiator Springs Racers, am trying the route thru Hollywoodland/Bugsland instead of the main drag.
  • Sun, 11:10: In line for RSR at 8:07. The first folks who took the main route were ahead of us, so this is not faster.
  • Sun, 11:25: Pokemon Go tells me I was going too fast. It's OK, I was in the back seat...
  • Sun, 11:45: Flo's Cafe for the very average American breakfast Disney serves on both coasts. But it's convenient and Flo's theming is fantastic
  • Sun, 11:47: I'm in the Motorama Girls room, great view of RSR and the balancing rock. Cool light fixture too.
  • Sun, 11:51: I have to check in for another tour in DL at 9:30, will stroll in that direction, hopefully the entry lines for 9 am opening will be gone
