    Well, that last update sure was popular.

    Next up is Club 33.

    So after Trader Sam's we went and rode a couple more rides, then headed back to our hotel to change into our formal attire for our dinner reservations at Club 33. We started hanging around the Club 33 area at about 5:15 because we were anxious, so we took a few photos by the sign.



    As we approached 5:30, a group had gathered out front. We thought maybe it was tourists checking out the door and sign, like we've done in the past, but soon found out it was people waiting to get in. We were disappointed with the attire most were wearing - shorts, t-shirts, etc. We were by far the most dressed up.

    At about 5:45 I pressed the button. During this picture, I realized I had to actually lift the flap, THEN push a button. Go me.



    We waited a few minutes for our party to be called, then walked into the lobby.



    I had tears in my eyes.

    I of course had to take a picture in the lift/elevator, which is much smaller than I had imagined!



    I was excited by anything with the 33 emblem on it



    We were sat in the trophy room, which made me even more excited as this is the room I've heard most about!! My husband and I took turns walking around and taking random photos. I apologize they're not as good quality as others have posted here.



















    All of this excitement and we haven't even started our meal...

    PLUS the amazing bathroom!! )

    Now we start Saturday. Almost to the good stuff!

    We started our morning out with Soarin'.





    I have to give my friend credit for this fantastic photo bomb. Thanks, Matt. Butthead.

    Then we took another ride on Junkyard Jamboree. I made the boys sit together for my own amusement.



    See how amused I am?



    Next we decided it was time for breakfast, and since we were in the area we checked out Flo's.



    We got the french toast and tamale, then split our meals half and half so we could each try it. Have I mentioned we like food? We like it. A lot.





    As for these particular dishes, I preferred the tamale. The French toast is MASSIVE, and pretty good, but I thought the salted caramel sauce was overly salty.

    After getting full stomachs, we headed to California Screamin'. Note: I do not recommend this ride on a full stomach.



    Then to Toy Story Midway Mania, where I am reminded of how very unconditioned my arm muscles are (and every other muscle I have, except maybe whatever I use for chewing):




    After this we took a spin on Sky School then headed back to the area by Monsters, Inc where I wanted to do our Disney VISA Meet n' Greet, which I've never done despite having this credit card for at least a couple years. To my complete and utter delight, we got to meet STITCH!!



    He slimed me. Jealous?

    I took a quick break at the seating area by House of Cards



    And learned to not sit in plastic furniture without first checking for puddles of water on said furniture.

    With a soaked bottom, I decided it was time for another round on ToT



    My pose was lame so I didn't bother snapping a photo of it. Sorry to disappoint, but I'll make up for it later!

    We then went on Indiana Jones (15 minute wait), grabbed a fast pass for it, then went to Jungle Cruise.





    Thanks to MiceChat, I learned that you can ask for a map of Jungle Cruise. This baby is getting FRAMED!



    At this point our Fastpasses were up for Indiana Jones, so we took another trip on there. I never tire of that ride.

    On the way out of Adventureland, I stopped to take a picture with Jasmine whom I have never met!



    We then hopped on the Monorail (my first ride since I can remember) to get to Trade Sam's



    We hung out with our two favorite bartenders, and enjoyed some adult beverages for a couple hours.



    I also got to meet up with a fellow MiceChatter, but I won't post her picture here unless she approves.

    Next up is Club 33. Yay!! :yea:

    Alright, let's finish up Friday night real quick:

    After ToT we headed over to Mad Tea Party (since Miss Poisonedapples insisted we check it out).





    We didn't stay very long, just kind of passed through a couple times. I enjoyed the music the DJ played, I wasn't such a fan of the Alice band. Still a fun atmosphere, though!

    Next we checked out the Oz preview:





    I am a huge Wizard of Oz fan, but I was unsure about this movie. I really disliked Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland, and I was worried this movie would be similar. I have to say, after seeing the preview and seeing that the actors do not have giant heads or neon face paint, I am SUPER EXCITED to see it!!

    We made a quick stop in the Animation building and did the voice over thing where Ursula steals your voice. We did the scene with Simba and Scar. It was really fun!! Sorry for the horrible picture, I couldn't get a decent one.



    When we passed by this quote on the wall, I demanded a picture!



    Awwwww.

    *gag* right? Moving on.

    We made our way over to Disneyland and took a ride on Pirates. I have found that I'm loving this ride more and more, and I'm not sure why. I have always enjoyed it but never really HAD to ride it. Now it's a must do!



    Then we finished our night up with a spin on Haunted Mansion, which I can never get a decent picture on so I didn't bother trying.

    Next up will be the beginning of Saturday, which I'll try to get to in the next couple days.

    Thank you to those of you who have followed along so far!

    Keep the report coming!

    we will have to peer pressure Poisonedapples onto ToT one day.
    Right?! I even charged him admission to be near me!

    Yes, we will get her to ride ToT, and then she and I will get you to eat a corn dog. So many things to achieve!

    Looking forward to today's trip report installment.
    There are some times where I am okay with being ignorant, and the black light in the hotel thing is one of them! Hahaha I'm sure that room would have lit up. *shudder*

    Cool that Lance Armstrong rode Tower Of Terror and sat right behind you.

    Yeah it definitely improved! It wasn't really all that bad, just sleeping in a bed that I was certain was unclean was the worst. I can deal with out of date decor and a bad location, but the dirt... No! Haha

    Oh my gosh!!! That totally looks like him!! Hahaha how funny

    Yeah I agree on Junkyard Jamboree. We rode is a couple weeks ago for the first time just because it was a walk up and we loved it! It's such a fun little ride.
