Great reports of the California parks! I know how you feel about the original Haunted Mansion. I either hit it for Haunted Mansion Holiday or when it's under rehab to be converted back to the original.

Was not expecting to see a WCB TR in this, but am glad nonetheless! One of the things I miss about living in Arizona was how easy it was to fly to California for the weekend and do a WCB (one year I went just for the Knott's day because they are full of so much fun). WCB 2013 was my first TPR event and a few of the people I met that weekend are the reason I ended up doing the Mini New Hotness/East Coast trip the next year, so I will consider it as my gateway drug!

I think this may have been my last trip to SoCal?!!? I honestly don't remember. I know KT and I are past due though for a big triumphant return!

Europe 2016

Most of the group started in Paris Disneyland (or just in Paris), but I couldn't meet them until they hit Amsterdam.

And that's where they found me--at the hotel, struggling against jet lag until the TPR bus arrived. I'm not sure how many times I dropped off, but I think the book I was reading hit the floor a few times that morning. But it was all worth it. Elissa arranged a great tour of some art museums, as well as the city, that day. Yes, there was a fair amount of culture among the Van Goghs and Rembrandts, with a touch of the Red Light District (well, it does have historical value, being in the oldest part of the city and all). That night, Derek took Dan, John, and I on a cultural tour of another sort, in which a number of fermented hoppy beverages were swigged down.

Yes, it was a great first day and night in Amsterdam, followed by plenty of parks from the Netherlands to Sweden.

This hurts a little more than normal as we were supposed to be at Europa right now.

Aw, I'm sorry. I understand your feelings, as I wish I was at Europa, too. :(
