Belmont Shore Stroll and Savor

On July 19th, Theresa, Rita and I joined Jacob down in Long Beach for the Belmont Shore Stroll and Savor.  We did this last year as well, and it just so happened that Rita was visiting then too.  
From the Stroll and Savor website:

A “taste of Belmont Shore”, Stroll & Savor is one of the most
popular events on 2nd St.  Savor delicious cuisine from over 30
restaurants and specialty food merchants.  

It’s a great way to try a lot of different kinds of food without ordering a whole meal.  
We just so happened to park right by one of my favorite spots from last year.  It’s a lemon gelato with balsamic vinegar on top of it.  Mmm.

Disneyland Dream Suite – Back at the Suite

We said goodnight to Michelle and Leandra and headed inside.  So the plan was to not go to sleep the whole night…
We’ll see how that works out.  Previously I had thoughts of just sitting out on the balcony and watching all the goings on of Disneyland at night.  Sadly though, the balcony is locked and won’t be opened until morning.  The windows have curtains across them that we probably could have pulled back and stared out, but that’s not exactly the same as standing on the balcony. 
We’ll have to just enjoy the inside of the suite, and of course we had to experience the amazing master bathroom.  Theresa and I drew a bubble bath and soaked in the hot water, enjoying the jets, and loving the ambiance of the room.  Just gazing up at the stars and listening to the calming music was wonderful.

Disneyland Dream Suite – Our After Dark Disneyland Tour

It was requested that we leave the room so they could turn down the beds.  We walked over to the Haunted Mansion and walked right on the ride.  It was here that I heard the first complaint from Theresa.

Theresa – My cheeks hurt from smiling so much!

Not that much of a complaint I guess.

Disneyland Dream Suite – Exploring the Rooms – Balcony and Patio

The Balcony is a fantastic place to not only people watch, but also to watch Fantasmic and Fireworks.
A New Orleans tradition is to include your initials in the railing.  You can see in gold that WD and RD are included on the rail here.

Disneyland Dream Suite – Exploring the Rooms – Master Bathroom

One of the most amazing parts of the Dream Suite was the Master Bathroom.
My favorite photo of this room is the scrollable panorama.  I used my tripod and wide angle lens to capture this in super high detail.  Just a couple comments on the panorama.  It’s big, ~100MB, so hopefully you’re viewing it on a fast connection.  Make sure you give it a minute or two to load.
It’s also high resolution, so the best way to view it is full screen.  Once it loads, hit the “F” key to change it to full screen.  You can also use the +/- buttons to zoom in and out as you scroll around.

Disneyland Dream Suite – Exploring the Rooms – Frontierland Bedroom

Just off the Parlor is the Frontierland bedroom.  It’s probably my favorite room in the whole suite.  There is just so much detail here, it’s amazing.
