No ADRs at DL.

Activities
Carlsbad planned for Legoland (across from GPPR) for several days, Sea World, Maritime Museum, Midway. Not sure about SD Zoo as we are probably going to Sydney Zoo next month. Tossing up on Julian.

Anaheim - 4 day flexi pass for DL/DCA. LA County Museum and OC County Parks. Venice Beach and Malibu (just so I can say I was there).

Booked our own things on cruise apart from adult brunch at Palo. Alcatraz and SF Fire Truck tours in San Fran. Plan on visiting Lefties for son and DH in SF. Doing our own thing in San Diego and Ensenada.

Think that's it.
