D23, Disneyland and L.A. in Pictures

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.
It’s been a week since D23 and we have had time to settle back down into our normal lives. I’ve also finally had time to put up some pictures of our trip. No breaking news here at this point, but just a photo tour of our trip. Once again, thank you to everyone who we meet at D23 and to those who gave us tips for DLR. It was an amazing trip we will never forget.

  • Amazing, Just Amazing. Im really sad I was not able to hang out with you guys when you were in the parks. Glad you had a good time, next time you guys are out here would gladly take you two to dinner.

    ps. Thanks for the shout out. : )

  • So, my first question is… what, no love for Boomer and the rest of the cast? I know that was Mason’s arm. Second question… Pair of Kings signing, guys? Really? ;-)

    • OK, in my defense, I wanted to see the Good Luck Charlie panel, but we didn’t get to Expo until Saturday. I also would have been up there for the cast of So Random. Oh, and I can’t believe we left Sunday before the Step It Up crew took the stage… um, I’m not really defending myself here am I?

      • I’m not going to be the one to admit that a Pair of Kings panel gives me hope that there will be more episodes available on InstaQueue. Not publicly, at least. And certainly not that I enjoy watching that show even *if* my kid isn’t around. That’s just embarrassing. I prefer high-brow things like, um, The Power Of Myth and… uh…. yeah, I’ve got nothing. I really like that show.

  • Awesome pics, guys! Won’t MC let you hold the camera, Nick? You are in a lot of pics, but MC is not. Common MC, let Nick hold the camera for a few shots next time! You guys really got around on your trip. Always lots to do and see in CA!

    One question, how can that picture of Mickey be the NEW talking Mickey? He has a nose but no chipmunk cheeks. I think some did a switcharoo in the backroom. LOL

  • Awesome pictures!! Loved seeing the sight through a tourists eyes…This is my own backyard ;) and I love it! Right down to the ‘In and Out’ burgers!
