Part 2 of my grand adventure !

Here's a few more pictures of the trip...the more I go through the pictures the more I want to go back! This is the Mission: Space ride in Epcot. This ride isn't for whimps, or for someone that just ate. Never in all my Disney years have I gone on a ride with air sick bags on hand! Even my big 6'5" husband was weak in the knees after this one!
Hope you enjoy the pictures...and happy Fathers day to all the Dads ( and fur dads) out there!



One day we ate at La Cellier in Canada. This is a really hard place to get into. Some people have made reservations up to 3 years in advance! We really lucked out and were able to get in on short notice...part of the advantage of being a party of 2.
The food was excellent! Our favorite was the Cheddar Cheese Soup!!!!! Looks like we're in a food coma in this picture!
One day we went to The Disney Speedway...I did a ride along in a brand spanking new Lamborghini ! The really weird part of this is I'm forever telling my husband to slow down! My young driver from Georgia  got this car up to 120 and I asked if it could go faster?!  I was so shocked that I loved this so much...when we accelerated my checks went to the back of my head. Seriously.
The only thing I didn't like were those ugly shoes they made me wear...ick!
Walt Disney never wanted Disneyland to be finished, and the same goes for Walt Disney World. A huge re-do of Fantasyland is underway. I can't wait to see this when it's done! The castle in the top left hand side is going to be the Beauty and the Beast area!!! LOVE this!

The back lot tour in Hollywood Studios

Part of the back lot tour included the chance to wander around a real prop department. It was so amazing...everything was carefully marked. This was a pickers dream!

The costume department

This is from the back lot tour in Hollywood Studios. I wanted to jump off the tram and rummage around !!
There were bolts and bolts of beautiful fabrics, trims and boxes and boxes of jewels!!! This is where they design and make costumes.

I'm back !

Here I am...back in the real world! My husband and I had an early 30th anniversary DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!  I've wanted to go there for as long as I could remember! It was beyond anything I could of imagined.
The words of the trip became "wow" and "Oh my gosh". We were like a couple of parrots!
Growing up in Southern California the Disneyland has always been a big part of my life, still is.
Walt Disney World is a totally different experience. I feel so lucky we were able to celebrate our anniversary was perfect!!!!

Epcot was everything I had hoped for...when we walked up to the gigantic ball I got chills!

Paris in Epcots World Showcase

We would always try yo make it to Paris for a pastry ( or two) to have with our coffee in the morning. Everything we had was so fabulous! 
That's all for part 1 !
