Arrived back last week from 4 days and nights at my favorite place. Of course because it was the week before Christmas, it was very crowded. But this time everything "clicked". We got checked into our Villa at 11:30 am, that is a record! We were in California Adventure by noon having a nice lunch at the Wharf.
The highlight of our trip was having lunch with my husband, his sister and her husband at Club 33 on Monday. We got there early for our reservation and when I told the hostess that it was our first time, she made us all buttons with our names on them that said "First Time." We took the small elevator up to the second floor and were seated in a beautiful dining room. The whole place was bigger than I expected. It was pretty crowded and probably sat around 50 people in the room we were in. Our waitress Terrie Jo was exceptional. She has worked at Club 33 for 29 years. Wow! The meal consisted of a salad/seafood bar, the main course and a delicious dessert bar. Kyle and Renee had Filet Mignon and Hardy and I had the "free range" chicken. Everything was fabulous. I can't even describe how good the chocolate creme brule was. I had two, there were small :) We went out on the balcony after lunch and took some pictures and video. We were able to look out at New Orleans Square. I purchased a Club 33 Holiday collector pin for myself. I can't thank the friends that made this happen for us enough. It was truly a magical experience.
There is something about going to Disneyland with small kids......they say the darndest things. It was late and we were heading back to the hotel. The kids decided to go on the Grizzly River Run since the hotel entrance is right there. They got soaked. My 7 yr old niece said " I am having a terrible time." She was so tired and wet. She was much better after a hot shower and dry pajamas.
We had a wonderful time with our family. We are so Blessed!
Wishing you all a magical day and a happy, healthy, prosperous 2012!
