    I'm so very sorry about your pain and getting so far behind again. I'm beyond happy everything is seemingly all better and don't be surprised to find a smallish person in one of your bags:oops: I need a vacation and yours sounds perfect

    Max has spoken! No Cars 2!

    M&G?? Meet a car?? Is that a thing??

    Guess I really have to see Cars 3 so I can understand who I'm looking it here!

    Wow, it must be good then! How did he like being a CM?

    Thank you! I'm actually amazed at how quickly I've gotten back to normal, when even light pressure on the crown was excruciating before.

    Welcome back and you are welcome anytime, behind or otherwise! Southwest does allow two checked bags per passenger! :p

    Bee he loved his time as a CM in epcot UK pavilion and he will possibly return. He visited a few other places during his stay. It was such a great experience for him and we got to visit him twice :)

    It's getting real!!!

    We are 37 days from California and 43 days from Disneyland!!!

    Last night we made an impromptu Target run and purchased $300 in gift cards for food and incidentals in the parks.

    Today my final Disney Vacation Account contribution was taken! We have enough in the account to cover our ticket/hotel package!

    I have twelve days until I leave for my opera gig. I've booked my bus ticket and will be meeting another singer who lives near NYC so we can ride together. It's a good thing I'll be busy for those three weeks or I'd be going crazy in Disney anticipation! :p

    ONE MONTH DANCE!!!

    [​IMG]

    We've been fine-tuning our California plans since we leave IN ONE MONTH!! We've booked our Muir Woods/Sausalito tour and decided to upgrade to include the Golden Gate cruise, because who knows when we'll get the chance to see San Francisco again?

    We're looking at the Sights and Bites Hollywood tour through Tourific Escapes. We're also planning some time at Santa Monica Beach. We know all the tourist stuff will be crowded in August but we're prepared to take things slow and not kill ourselves trying to see everything.

    I also booked the World of Color Dessert Party for our DCA day. I've been going back and forth on this one but I think that having seating for what may be our one and only time seeing WOC will be worth the price. Reviews indicate that it's a lot of food as well so I've moved Wine Country Trattoria to lunch and WOC will serve as dinner, dessert, drinks, and entertainment for the night.

    I also have great tooth news! I had my follow-up with the endodontist and he said my tooth is healing even more quickly than he expected! I also don't have to go back to the regular dentist for the restoration because the endo was able to use my old crown.

    [​IMG]

    Quick poll for those will read my TR: will you want to read about our non-Disney days?

    PS Happy Fourth to my fellow Americans. We're making Portobello burgers with goat cheese on pretzel buns!

    First off I would like to hear about the entire trip
    As I mentioned early in the report we did a San Fran - Muir Woods- Jelly Belly Factory- Monterey - DLR - San Diego trip in 2012
    So I am really looking forward to travel back vicariously through the two of you to recapture/remember/relive those great memories.

    I did a Golden Gate cruise one time on a business trip (think it was 2002) and really enjoyed it.
    We went to Alcatraz in 2012 - cannot remember if that is on your agenda.
    San Fran is one of my favorite cities to visit - hope to return someday

    Feel free to ask any last minute questions - we are all here to help if we can.

    Glad to hear the tooth issues are going well and that it will/should not impact your singing (?)

    And Happy 4th of July to my friends south of the border - make good choices today ;)

    If you guys do a M&G with the Cars I highly recommend Mater (too funny) and Red (he's awful cute for a firetruck...hehe)!

    Definitely want to hear about the WHOLE trip, and I would love to hear you sing too!

    M and I are so excited for our trip!! We bought some new leggings for the parks AND some Star Wars tshirts at Target, which was having a 20% off clothing sale!

    For M:

    Thanks, Max! We won't be visiting Alcatraz but the cruise goes by it (part of the reason we booked it!) so we'll at least get to see it. I know I'll think of questions as we get closer. :D

    I'm so happy the tooth stuff hasn't been worse and I'm pretty much back to normal singing-wise. The main singing issue I had during the first week or so was I couldn't open my jaw as large as I needed to sing high notes, due to the general soreness of the area. The other thing is, while vocal fold hemorrhage is rare, the risk increases with NSAID use, and I was taking quite a lot of ibuprofen the first few days so I was just very cautious with singing. If I wasn't being paid to sing I kept my mouth shut. :) (Of course, I did-and continue to do-as much mental language/memorization work as possible in preparation for the opera. The good news is lots of singing prep work can be done without singing at all!) But now I'm back to normal, singing-wise!

    @figmentfan423 you got it!

    So glad you are going to post the non Disney parts of your trip. I was too late to chime in on the poll, lol!
    Glad to hear your recovery from your tooth procedure is going so well! It must be a huge relief!
    Grilled portobello burgers with goat cheese on pretzel buns sound delicious! Hope you and M enjoyed the 4th!

    Glad to hear your voice is back to its normal exceptional level

    The boat will give you good view of Alcatraz IF it is a clear day

    Fingers crossed!!!
