You can have Edward Cullen...We'll take Mickey Mouse, and the trip begins on page 101
 
Hello Disfriends!!

Once again I am starting a pretrip report. This time had better end in the trip or I think I may actually cry!! It seems that every time I start a pretrip report something happens so cross your fingers and toes with me that this doesn't fall through!!

First the cast of characters, myself Michele(kids are thinking of nickname so I am waiting), my dh and their dad Scott who is going to be known as Weird Bikeguy, my mom Beverly that I am not sure about a nickname, my oldest daughter Kacy 16, who shall be known as Berht, my other daughter Kody 15, who shall be known as the Nicknamer until I can think of a better nickname, and our son Loren 13, who shall be known as Loho.

Joining us on this trip is Loren's best friend Vincent 14, to be known as Bawb, his grandma and my friend Belen, and his little sister Cheyenne 4 at the time of the trip, who also needs a nickname. Oh Ms Nicknamer???? I think like my mom, Belen wouldn't really want a nickname.

We are going June 14 thru June 18 or 19. And oh boy I am so excited, this is a long overdue trip. Our last trip was in March of 2007 and I was so sick I just didn't enjoy myself as much as I could or for that matter should.

We are going to be staying at the Best Western Stovall Inn, this is the first time in a long time that we are not staying onsite. I am kind of sad about that, but my budget isn't. There are so many benefits to staying at Stovall's including being able to walk to the park if we so choose. Or ride the shuttle.

This is a trip for the ages.:rotfl: We have them all 2 seniors, 2 adults, 4 teenagers and one little one. Join us on our little journey, and forget Edward Cullen, we are gonna have Mickey Mouse!!

The title is for Bawb, the big Edward Cullen fan!!

Why thank you I am sure Bawb will be thrilled. I expect that all four teenagers will visit the thread at one time or another.

Cheyenne has a nickname now. She is now going to be called Boo, from the nicknamer. She is named after Boo from Monsters Inc. because she so looks like Boo!!

And the Nicknamer will be called Nerdy Cookies for at least the near future.

:rotfl:

Jazz, I've been thinking about you everytime I hear a Shark score. I am so glad to see you.

Oh yeah, it should be quite interesting to say the least. And I am looking forward to the added dynamics of having so many ages along. And I am glad to see you here!!

Well, we are going to drive as it is only 424 miles from our driveway to Disneyland according to Google maps. Now honestly I am not sure how the groups willl be split but I will tell you that we will be taking to vehicles.

Normally we would leave as soon as Weird Bike Guy gets off work on Sunday night, but, because Belen cannot drive at night we are going to leave Sunday the 13th in the early morning. Now I rather like the idea because coming Sunday afternoon is a lot better than on a busy Monday morning. All that commute traffic and such.

I think maybe Weird Bike Guy (who I may begin to refer to as WBG for brevity), Mama(my nickname because according to Kody my name is Mommy, and all these years I thought it was Michele), Berht, Nerdy Cookies (who may become NC), Loho, and Bawb may walk over to Downtown Disney and all the fun to be had in that area. Especially since Bawb has never been to DTD. That will give the two grandma's a chance to rest before the frivolity of Disneyland on Monday.

Now, I realize that DTD is like a mall, and is just a money trap but I still love it tremendously. And I think that it will be fun to share it with someone who has never spent time there. And because we are going to be with the teenagers maybe WBG and I will go over to the Disneyland Hotel and visit the Lost Bar and have a grown up beverage. Ah the pleasure of the kids growing up. Now this is on the contingent that we do not end up with Boo.

Ahh. I love the sound of a Sharks goal. Yes, yes I do. :goodvibes And it's been quite awhile, huh? I've missed this place, but it looks like I have good timing.

And as far as the title of your TR is concerned ... why can't we have both?!?! I know I sure as heck will.

I was going for catchy and Bawb is a major Edward Cullen fan and he kind of came up with the title. And I will take Mickey for sure, Mickey, Mickey, he's my guy.:goodvibes

What?? Say it isn't so...:rotfl2::lmao:

I swear I can never leave {WDW} DTD without spending $50 ... more like $100+. From World of Disney to Once Upon a Toy to the Art of Disney and now Goofy's Candy Company ... then there's Ghiradellis, too.

I assume DL DTD is similar.

I'm so glad you guys are planning a trip! It sounds like tons of fun and will be my first DL trip report so I can live vicariously through you on all the rides, etc.

Marshay 01-17-2010 07:51 PM

OH, I love the nicknames!!

I know shocking huh? Disney doing something commercial and for money? No way! :rotfl:

In DTD here the candy shop is Marceline's Confectionery and oh my. I want some fudge this trip. Ghiradellis is not the biggest deal to me, I just need to drive 45 miles to go to Ghiradelli Square in San Francisco.

I love the World of Disney, I look forward to going there and The Emporium on Main Street.

I am thrilled to see you here. Thanks for joining in.:goodvibes

Oh thank you, it adds to the fun. Nerdy Cookies loves giving nicknames. She is a kick (sometimes).:rotfl:
