LOL I did a bit of googling too, I didn't think Hawaii was the most isolated chain of islands in the world? Random. Hope you're having fun!

Ha! Cheater!

I had never been and had no idea that they were supposedly the most isolated island chain on the planet. It was in the guide book and I still had to confirm it with a google myself. Who'd a thunk it? Found it confirmed a bunch of places online, though. Aloha!

Hmmm...considering that he's made quite a few accomplishments, the guy should also have a beach named after him.

Really cool!

Well I cheated and Googled it. I won't spoil it but I don't get the "most isolated"

HA! Sadly, I HAVE seen that film. I much prefer the Simpson's Halloween Special based on it.

While I was voted off the island and returned home late last night, same problem....the Island of Dr. Moreau wasn't a chain. Also, at least to my knowledge, Val Kilmer was never known as "The Duke." May God have mercy on anyplace that would make a statue of him as well. lol

Are you on The Island of Dr. Moreau?

Well, while I'd certainly be well-suited for the Island of Misfit Toys, it has the same problem as Easter Isle. It is only one island. Plus, like Easter Island and the Isles of Tierra del Fuego, they are all close to something. How long did it take Rudolph to get there? Two clicks from the North Pole.

While JJ had the most creative answer (never saw that show. Why were there no people of color on that "world boat?" Hell, there was even a yellow Power Ranger!) Becks, while not 100%, was actually the closest.

Hint? I could walk down to the beach each day and be welcomed by a statue of "The Duke."

after we entered they did stop the entrances to the park.  and shut the fireworks down due to crowds.  from there it took us one hour to leave the park.  sigh

Oh man, feeling a bit stink that we're not going to Universal Studios in May now that I know they have a Simpsons ride!

You went to Disneyland on the Fourth of July. Yeah, that's a really bad idea. At least it wasn't during December, though.

Tip #539: NEVER go to Disneyland during the Winter Holiday Season, or THIS will most likely happen. No joke.

And yeah, Universal Studios is a good amusement park. The Simpsons Ride, anyone?

Strat, Easter Island is just that, one island. He said a group of islands, although he didn't say it was tropical, could be anywhere up to and including and isolated grouping of islands in a large lake, or sea? Too many places to guess from such a vague hint.

Flora was what every traveling parent would pray for on both the flight there and the flight back. Slept the whole way mostly, only woke up one time on the way there and as soon as she had her bottle, she went right back to sleep. She was such a good baby that people actually congratualted us on how good she was the whole plane trip. I don't usually give Olympic much credit but for this I will. They had these little baby basinettes that locked into the wall of the partician in front of our seats, and I put her in her little crib and she went right off to sleep.

I don't blame you for sleeping at the airport, had I been alone I would have done the same as I would have been sound asleep on the floor long before the time we reached our hotel.
