A Couple of Questions XXXX

I feel like we have thoroughly hit nearly every nook and crannie of Disneyland and California Adventure - including shows. The funniest moment of the day was Brayden, who was among the chosen to learn how to be a Jedi Knight in the Jedi Training Academy, did not pay attention to the sequence of moves that he was supposed to do against Darth Vader - and instead just tried to take him out. We have the whole thing on video, but I was hysterically laughing at the commentary by the "Master Jedi" in assessment of Brayden's performance. - Too stinkin' funny.

Due to the bad cold/cough - I no longer have the ability to scream in excitement - I'm a week behind Michele in this little virus, so she can't scream either - it's this nasty little croak... oh well. I'll be walking to Target in the morning for some serious cough drops to help with our final day.

As you might expect, we're on a theme this week, so the questions aren't any different - when answering, feel free to answer for what you think right now, or what you liked a long time ago - or simply a generic answer to rides in general.

1. What amusement park ride (Disneyland or otherwise) could you repeat endlessly?

2. What park ride would you absolutely never do - or, perhaps, never do again after having suffered through it the first time?

I am so glad you are having such a great time! I know that Lisa is taping your shows for you while you are gone, but I did TIVO Veronica Mars just in case you wanted to watch it with me before the next episode. Which, by the way, we will have to TIVO and probably watch on Wednesday since Tuesday is Halloween. Anyway, sorry to hear that you guys have the little throaty voice, bummer!

1. I am really not that sure because I was five when I last went to Disneyland. I am deathly afraid of heights and a fraidy cat when it comes to rides, so I would have to say either Dumbo or the Tea Cups. (My husband would be so disappointed in me!)

2. Anything that goes up high, throws you around, and basically would scare the living daylights out of you. Faris Wheel.... Nope, don't want to do that one; too high; it would make me cry; I would have to keep my eyes closed the whole time. (Once again, my husband would be very disappointed in me.)

Have a great last day, tell everyone we said hi and that we love them all and miss them all!

1. All aspects of Disney World: we sometimes just go Lobby Looking and take the monorail to the different hotels just to check 'em out, so we can be even minimally amused at Disney.
2. I will never do Mission Space in Epcot!!! Pete, who doesn't get sick or anything on any ride came off of it pale/white!!

1. Maybe Soarin' Over California, maybe Splash Mountain, maybe Storybook Land, maybe Peter Pan's Magic Flight...

2. Texas Giant at Great Flags in Texas (shook my brains to smitherines) and California Screamin' (last time and only time I went on it I had a corn dog & coke before boarding. I hadn't had any food like that in about year. Yeah, not good)

I already commented once - don't know what happened to that one.....

1. For the sheer fun of family bonding and smiles - Splash Mountain. Smiles all the way through, by far the most rode-on ride.... For the thrill of sensation - Tower of Terror. The feeling of my backend becoming weightless and floating is spectacular in and of itself! (Thank you for riding it a second time with me today, Chele!)

2. Mulholland Madness - or any roller coaster with jerks and stops that makes you think you will for sure go right off the tracks. I don't trust the tracks - especially when they are suspended very high in the air.....

There is a Tower of Terror in Disneyland???? yea! That is Molly's favorite.
Amy, California Screamin'? I was pregnant when we went to Disneyland, so I didn't even pay attention to the scary rides. And Storybook Land?
And Mullholland Madness...again, probably one I just didn't pay attention to?
Journal about the whole week, Steph, so I can live vicariously through you.
I love that Brayden was picked to be the Star Wars guy!

California Adventure has California Screamin', Tower of Terror and Mulholland Madness - all fast pass features.

Storybook Land is a boat ride in Fantasyland that is slow moving and takes you through a canal of miniature storybook lands. Actually, it's one of the few rides I've never been on, although Michele took the kids on it last year. You can see all of the stuff if you go on the Casey Junior Train.

I think I'll avoid boring everyone of all of our details, Hollie, but feel free to ask any and all questions via email - I feel like we covered almost every nook and crannie of both parks this week.
