We Must Head For Disneyland And Catal For Easter Dinner (Page Three)
We did some chores, a little gardening. and some treadmill before going to Disneyland.
We stopped at Catal on the way in and finalized reservations. Disneyland at 3:50!
Mandatory visit to see Walk and Mickey!
The park was not "bulging" with people today!
We must tell Donna that it was not bulging!
The flowers were as usual, magnificent
Easter colors everywhere
We decided to go to Downtown Disney via the Monorail
The Submarines were reconstruction?
Did You Know? - Finding Nemo: Submarine Voyage closed in January 2014 for what was announced as an extended refurbishment. Disneyland's submarine ride to the North Pole and the lost continent of Atlantis opened in June 1959 before closing in September 1998. The attraction reopened in June 2007 with a Finding Nemo overlay, inspired by the Pixar movie.
The submarine ride uses one of Disneyland's largest show building, as all elements needed to be duplicated, so that both sides of the submarine could see the same thing. That, coupled with a low capacity -- fewer than 1,000 guests per hour -- made the submarine ride one of the most cost-inefficient at Disneyland.
Disneyland states the 5 million gallon 'lagoon' will be drained allowing crews to preform the massive ride refurbishment. They state when (if) the ride reopens guests will see a more vibrate and colorful version of the ride, which will be painted with a special mixture created by Disney which involved recycled glass.
Looks bleak without the water
Loads of work underway
We hopped the monorail to Downtown Disney
Whooosh.... Five minutes later we are walking through Disneyland
Time for a teeny-weeny glass of vino before going to dinner
Handsome devil he is!
Did You Know? - The Billquists & Jettes joined us for Easter Dinner this year. We met them on Life Day 2010 when we arrange to have them go to Club 33 in Disneyland after a several month-long internet relationship! Bob and Robin joined us and we have seen them many times since! It was great that they were down for the Disneyland visit this week!
Donna and Jaycee really hit it off
Nick being Nick.... That is a good thing
Quotation To Remember: The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck
Donna tells a story and Jaycee is getting the giggles

Quotation To Remember: The informality of family life is a blessed condition that allows us to become our best while looking our worst. ~Marge Kennedy
