ALL Aboard a WONDERful TR! FEB 2010 - 3/29 Final Ramblings & a PTR!
 
All Aboard! Are you ready?

SO this truly IS a first for me, everybody! A TR I am writing, but, can you believe it?! This is a CRUISE TR! :goodvibes Foreign territory for me! :laughing:
I decided to start it over on the DIS Cruise Board because, well, I figured this is where it really belongs! :p

Before I begin this cruise extravaganza, however, I want to give you a quick shot of our one day stop at Hilton Head -- where we spent the night on our way home... I will tell you all about HH when I get to that point in the TR, but there is something I want you to see…:magnify:

This is a mileage sign post. It lists all the Disney resorts and the mileage to get to them from the Hilton Head Resort! Only 307 to the Beach Club Villas, WigD and Christine!! :beach: I thought it was very charming… Here is another view of it…. and of course you can see the HH inlet.

Here is another … a little closer …

And a little closer...

There. Now that is nice and clear. SO I am sure you can see it is 2,459 miles from Hilton Head to the Grand Californian in Disneyland. Isn’t that interesting? :scratchin I don’t know that I would have thought it was very interesting a month ago. But, things change, don’t they? :rolleyes: Well, they change, when plans get made… and some plans have been made …


"Boys and girls of every age, wouldn’t you like to see something strange? Come with us and you will see, this our town of Halloween..."

And if you don’t want to see something "strange" you can wait until my PTR for our...

Halloween Trip to Disneyland

Coming this October 2010.
:teeth:


NOW back to your regularly scheduled CRUISE TRIP REPORT.

My DH and I sailed the Disney Wonder February 25th - 27th, 2010. We had a great time together, and I can't wait to share it with you! :goodvibes

Hope you will sail along! :sail:

Now that I have read, I think it is super cool that you are headed to Disneyland for Halloween! How fun will that be??? Hilton Head looks great, and I am already excited about the cruise report just from the picture of the stacks!

wigdoutdismom 03-06-2010 06:42 PM

Here! Love the way you started!
So cool that you are going to Disneyland for Halloween! That's going to be an awesome adventure!
Can't wait to get started on this cruise, I'll be taking notes!

Then, your TR!

Then, another PTR!!

I love your TR, in case you can't tell :rotfl:.

I don't know if you're helping me count down the days to my delux birthday trip, or if you're inciting me to do one-day non-park trips (mostly to see different resorts, shop, and EAT :drinking1.

rgrutland 03-06-2010 07:32 PM

I'm subbing!! Followed you over from your other TR's, I love them all! :thumbsup2

I have actually used your story to try to entice my husband to drive to Disney (we are also from MD) "HappyDog drives to Disney all the time!" My hope is to get him to give in sometime this Summer...we'll see. :rolleyes1

Lookin' forward to reading along...

Thank you Christine!!! YES, Halloween in Disneyland! Well I am going to keep that fun for the end of this TR, and I will add it to my new PTR for the summer!!! I can't say I have too much Disney fun planned, but it is making my head spin!!!! We have a plan for a split stay at Disney and in San Diego -- to go to Lego Land the zoo, and visit some family friends. We have a week with two days off the first week of Nov. So it worked! More will come on this!

YOU should so watch it!! That dang special had been a catalyst for us!!! We had so much fun on this short excursion -- even though we had been on a Disney Cruise before. It was when we were 27 or so, I think, ten years ago basically!

The sign post is really charming, as is all of HH!

I know! Total fun! I am really jazzed. We are only in Disneyland for a few days, we are adding this or splitting this with a week in San Diego. We have a resort stay in San Diego so we can go to Lego Land and a few other places, and visit friends! It was easy to convince DH once I reminded him about the Jack Skellington overlay at the HM!!! A Disneyland special!

HH is really pretty! I will give a good report of it as well. I am going to start the real TR probably tomorrow, though, we'll see if I can get at least one entry tonight! BUT that photo was one of my favorites :goodvibes

It was fun! I had to think of something to tell everyone but I had to keep it in order! And finally I was just bursting at the seams with trips I couldn't tell you about, so I just said "Ah Fooey" and put the tickers up! :laughing: I hope to give you great tips for the cruise you and Marc and Baylor are on this summer!

I'll share all about Disneyland soon, I promise! ;)

You know, when you put it that way... :lmao: Good grief. I am going to run out of room for links!!!! :laughing: NEVER fear. That is what size "1" font is for!!! :laughing:

Oh, there are more than enough activities and resorts to explore and restaurants to sample, that you can TOTALLY make a non-park day! I'd go for it!!!!

Oh gee! I am so glad you are enjoying the read so thank you! Well, we just tried that driving out this year, and I have to say it has worked to our advantage -- especially at Christmas and then over February. We got some great rates for air fare in Feb but since we had already committed to HH for a night, it made sense to just stick with our plan. I have to say my DH has often driven the bulk of the time... BUT I say you gotta at least try it once! It isn't awful, so long as you have things to do in the car for kids, and can drive mostly at night.

Thanks for coming over again!
