So after all the hell of pushing our way to the front to get wristbands to meet the cast of Descendants our reward is Delilah is on national TV as part of their Descendants 2 after party that aired on 7 different channels nationwide! Pretty cool!! A very nice ending to a very stressful trip.

Cool costumes!!
Meeting Dove Cameron and the Descendants 2 cast!!! We were in a mob of people trying to get in line to see them and get a photo. They kept telling us there was no room to line up but people kept showing up. No one knew where the line was or where to stand. We waited from 10:30--2:00. It was so stressful. Delilah made friends with the people in line and they helped her get a wristband for the photo op. There was an angry mob that was swarming the cast members with wristbands. It was insane!!!! But we did it!!!
Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson signing the Descendants 2 new CD! Delilah was so excited. We had worked for hours on gifts and letters to give them and Delilah was able to!!
Finally inside. So many fun things to do.
Waiting to get in. Open open open!!!! We were inside this time and up against a wall. So nice
Thursday July 13. Delilah and I got our nails done at the very nice salon inside the Hilton. We tried to find out about the expo entrance policy but everyone gave us a different story. We went back to the condo and realized I didn't have our gold D23 membership card so we went back to the convention center to get a temporary one. We went to Target to buy bags for Delilah to put her gifts in to give to Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson and to buy more Diet Coke for me. While there we realized we only had the gold pass for 4 of our family of 5 so we spent 3 very frustrating hours trying to buy a single gold membership for Tim. We achieved success at 8:00 pm. Then Tim and Delilah walked back from the convention center and we had dinner in the condo and got ready for the Expo.
