We finally found the new Big Al sculpture, with the help of friends. We'd gone looking for him last week but I'd thought he was in a different place, and we apparently walked right past him without seeing him because we were focused on something else.

He's situated in the Disney Vacation Club space just across the #GrandCalifornianHotel entrance into #DisneyCaliforniaAdventure . The lockers have been moved further up the path, and they're free for 2 hours while you go on Grizzly River Run. 1/2

Dinner last night was at inside the .

We found out that they've had a new bread that's been available since last Thanksgiving - sweet potato bread, with apricot butter and cranberry relish. Gorgeous and delicious. Both accompaniments were so good. A much better offering than the prior focaccia bread.

Washington Apple martini with yet a different garnish - I've never gotten a dried slice of apple before. 1/4

They were kind enough to add a little extra on my dessert, which was the chocolate mousse cake with chocolate ice cream.

We didn't finish our bread so took the rest home. I don't remember the pretty logoed bag but we rarely have leftovers from there.

Lots of fun interaction with the staff and other diners. Such a terrific evening. 4/4

I always love the in the lobby of the , but they've absolutely outdone themselves this year. The first pictures were from around 11am yesterday.

The first thing that caught my eye were the giant used as decorations. And then, the super popular cookies. /1

And then I noticed all the sweet treats being used to build and decorate the house - scones and candies and candy canes and waffle ice cream cone material and croissants and cinnamon rolls and donuts. So pretty and craving-inducing. /2

But as the sign said, they were still creating. More than 12 hours later, I was back and there were indeed some very prominent additions - a chocolate chip cookie rug in front of the fireplace, 2 cupcakes as trees with their own adorable confection ornaments, and of course, !
