I know it would piss off the Star Wars purists but I want to see Batuu decorated for Xmas. Put baby Yoda in a Santa hat!

random thoughts -

United sucks - they changed our carefully selected seats pre-flight. I found out when printing boarding passes.

My first trip on a a 787-10 Dreamliner was fantastic. The flight was as smooth as silk. I slept about three hours and watched TS4 for the balance of the flight. Coming home was a little bumpy but we made the trip in 4 1/4 hours somehow and landed 1 hour early.

We didn't see any celebrities going, but coming home we saw Snooky from Jersey Shore and her assistant in the United Lounge. Snooky flew first class and her pal flew in the way back of the plane. Not much of a celebrity sighting.

Encountered numerous CMS in parks that were a bit surly and appeared bored and going through the motions.

I did not get the park view room at VGC that I wanted but that is never guaranteed.

Mousekeeping entered the room daily and emptied the garbage. I never saw them. Eight quarters disappeared off the TV stand. Either they swiped them or thought they were a tip.

Weather was too cold. Could not enjoy the pool. I missed the heat. Luckily, it did not rain our entire stay.

LAX Uber stand is far from terminal. We walked and wished we had taken the shuttle.

Parks were crowded but we couldn't make sense of it. Monday was more crowded than Sunday. Probably AP blackout dates had something to do with it.

Steakhouse 55 was OK. Nothing spectacular.

Carnation Cafe may be my favorite in-park restaurant.

The parks opened very early and stayed open late every day. That was nice.

It was nice to see characters just show up at random times and places. I miss that at WDW.

SWL was not overly crowded at DL either.

I didn't feel the magic this trip, but then again I haven't felt it for quite some time now. I think I've gone too much the last few years.
