Good versus Evil - Speechless Sundays

 

Lego Store

 

This was one of the new "sculptures" at the reopened Lego Store at Downtown Disney.  It's amazing to me and kids how incredible the things are that they can build with Legos.

We just had to stop and take a look at what they have created and enjoy the spectacle.

Sunday Photo-This is How Popcorn Should Look!

You probably guessed by now, with your keen observation skills, that this picture was taken in Disneyland. In the little shots they have these bags of popcorn from all different kinds of flavors like chocolate caramel, cookies and cream, and this very colorful confetti popcorn.. I like popcorn, just don't like how it gets stuck in my teeth, but if your popcorn looked like this you could not not enjoy it with a smile on your face!

Happy Sunday! :)

I am Activerain... Hanging With Activerain... In the Happiest Place on Earth!!!!
Stacey Smith, Your Orange County Beach Cities Realtor (Michael Plummer Group)

I am Activerain... Hanging With Activerain... In the Happiest Place on Earth!!!!

This weekend was the NAR Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.. So this year it was in my own backyard... And guess what???? I got to meet some of the Activerain staff.

I got to meet Kerrie Greenhalgh.. Who is just the sweetest person ever!!! Anthony van Vactor, Nick Beckley, who had me laughing so hard that my abs are sore today! Most hilarious guys ever!!! and Lauren Bernstein, she is such a sweetheart as well!!

Yesterday was an unusuallly rainy day in Orange County and it was a little chilly.. Not bad though... And we decided to go to Disneyland after the expo was over at 4pm. Anyone that lives in Orange County, that loves Disneyland, and doesn't have kids knows that once it is rainy and cool outside.. That is the best time to go!!! No long lines.. No crazy moms with strollers slamming into your calves, and not really any crowds at all, so it was perfect!!!

We got so many of the great rides in like Buzzlightyear Astro Blaster, Space Mountain, Indiana Jones, Big Thunder Mountain, The Matterhorn... We had tons of laughs.. Shrills of Joy, a little queizziness from the bumpy rides, but mostly laughs and shrills of joy...

Most of us already know Kerrie Greenhalgh, if you don't already get to know her.. She is the sweetest person part of the Activerain staff and you will love her!!!

But you also need to get to know Anthony van Vactor and Nick Beckley.. Two of the funniest guys.. There was never a dull moment with these two... We met up with Christine Donovan for dinner in downtown Disney at The House of Blues..Between Nick and Christine.. It was the funniest thing.. I won't tell you what happened but go to either one of them.. Say House of Blues, Pour Some Sugar on Me... What happened??? It was too funny... I don't know if the story will be as funny, but being there was the best ever!!

You definately what to get to know Lauren Berstein...She is another Activerain sweetheart that you will love!!!

It was such an honor being able to hang out with all these people that have such a huge part in running and managing this amazing community we all love!!! Below are the pictures that we managed to take in between all the fun we were having.. Some of the pics are blurry.. Camera phones still need some improvement on being able to take night pics but you still can see the fun we were having!! Hope you enjoy! :)

 

P.S. to Niki and Bob.... All four of them deserve a raise!! They represented AR this weekend and did a fantastic job!!! :)

Anthony, Kerrie, and myself on the tram on way way into the park!!! :)

I know it's a little dark an blurry but you can still see our smiling faces.. At the entrance of Disneyland in front of the Christmas tree.. From Left to Right.. Lauren, Anthony, Myself, Kerrie, and Nick... :)

Anthony and Nick  on big thunder mountain... Those are faces of pure happiness right there!!! :)

That is a shrill of joy, I promise you!!! :)

See... Totally happy.. Not afraid at all... Kerrie right behind him, looks like she is even wiping happy tears from her eyes.. :)

Even Nick wasn't afraid... :)

Corn cobs and turkey legs.... I don't know if to say mmmmmm... or not... But you can be sure THEY are enjoying the greasy, yummy, buttery goodness.. :)

One of the happiest people on earth eating devouring the happiest turkey on earth...:)

WE ARE ACTIVERAIN!!!! EVEN IN 3-D!!! :)

Friday Foto-Who You Callin Pumpkin????

Friday Foto-Who You Callin Pumpkin????

It's that time of year again! I love Disneyland this time of year. All the holiday decorations for Halloween are up, they are about to open two rides in the park that they have had shut down for a few weeks for holiday decorating.

The Haunted Mansion they transform into The Nightmare Before Christmas ride, which works out perfect because they are able to leave those decoration up all throughout the Christmas season as well. Also the add some cool and scarey effects to space mountain.. It is kinda scarey to see this flaming ghost like thing coming at you with it's mouth open...

You will also be able to enjoy other attractions during the Halloween season like the new Halloween Firework show, and also, on select nights, trick or treating through out the park.

This is the picture of the giant Mickey Pumpkin Head that is at the entrance of the park, greeting guests as they make their way to all the attractions during the holiday season. At night it is really neat because they have lights hitting it that turn the pumpkin different colors.

Halloween is just around the corner, have you thought about what your costume is going to be this year??? I am still thinking.. I am actually leaning towards being the Mad Hatter... What are you thinking about being this year??

Can You Hear the Thunder???
Stacey Smith, Your Orange County Beach Cities Realtor (Michael Plummer Group)

Can You Hear the Thunder???

As usual on the start of the weekend I went to Disneyland.. Well once you have an annual pass and you're not blacked out and live like only 20 minutes away, it's kinda the thing to do. Today was actually quite awesome though. My favorite day to go to Disneyland ever is TODAY!! The first Friday after Labor Day...

Though there were a few rides closed down for holiday decorating like The Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain, today the park was not crowded at all.. LOVED IT!!! It was only 10 minutes to get onto Indiana Jones.. Got to ride Star Tours, and not have to wait 75 minutes to get on it, the wait was only 25 minutes, and the refurbishments and changes they have done to the ride are AWESOME!!!!! The ride is now in 3-D, C3PO is your captain and their are around 50 differnt variations for planets you can go to, rather Corusant, Bespin, Naboo, Tatooine, etc.. (yeah i'm a Star Wars nerd!!) But this time once I rode it we went to Hoth!! It was awesome!! Lol... I got a picture of a Storm Trooper to that was at the beginning of the ride as we boarded our star ship!! :)

Seriously though the best time to go to Disneyland is the first Friday after Labor Day.. The weather is lovely, the crowds are way way wayyy down from the summer crowds, and the wait time on the rides is very little!!! Attached is a video of me riding on Big Thunder Mountain... You will probably hear me screaming like a silly girl but those are shrills of joy I can assure you! I had alot of fun today!!! Hope you enjoy the video!!!

Disney's California Adventure-Wonderful World of Color
Stacey Smith, Your Orange County Beach Cities Realtor (Michael Plummer Group)

Disney's California Adventure-Wonderful World of Color

The Wonderful World of Color is an AMAZING water and light (with a few flamethrowers) show in California Adventure.. They have this show everynight, in fact they shut down that section of the part specifically for that show! You have to have a ticket to be able to view it. You can use your tickets into the park or you annual passes to get tickets to the show, at certain times you can go to the Grizzly River fastpass dispencers and a cast member will distribute you and your guest tickets to the show.

 

The show itself is SPECTACULAR!!! It stays true to everything Walt Disney and you cannot help but watch this show as if you were once again a wide-eyed child!!! Almost any and every Disney Cartoon/Pixar Cartoon you can think of you will see clips of in this show. If you grew up on Disney movies like I did, this show is something you will find to be very endearing!!!

Below are two videos of scenes from the show.. The first one is Under The Sea from The Little Mermaid, and the second one is my personal favorite, a scene from Pirates of the Carribbean-On Stranger Tides.. I love the pirates one because not only do I love the music from the movies but they incorporated flame throwers in this segment and it is soooo awesome!!!!

I know the video quality isn't the greatest in the world.. The videos were taken from my phone but they are still pretty awesome!!! Hope you enjoy!!!
