I'm NEVER staying home for March Break again! FINISHED 07/17 Just in time!

Last year I didn't go anywhere during March break, and I hated it. The four previous breaks I'd been to Washington DC, a little trip within the Maritimes and Walt Disney World Twice.

Hearing all the other teachers talk about their trips... eugh!

So my friend (who has been to WDW with me twice, one shopping no parks trip and one park trip - see my TR) and I decided we could go somewhere together.

I am a teacher . Currently I teach French Immersion kindergarten, but I've taught almost every grade out there between my pre-service teaching and my contracts.

My friend, who we'll call Blanche for this TR, is a pediatric nurse.

We talked and debated doing WDW, DL, Disneyland Paris or a Disney cruise. We hmmmed and hawed and discussed and e-mailed for weeks. One day we had completely decided on DLP and I was so excited, having never been to France. The next day we changed our minds and picked DL. That evening, our hotel was booked.

We leave on Saturday March 17th arriving around noon. We leave the next Saturday around 10pm! We'll have an extra day!

We're staying in a Disney view room at the Hojo.

You will really like the DL view rooms at HOJO. Make sure you ask for a high room to get full view. When I stayed there the room was very clean, front desk staff very friendly, and housekeeping staff was friendly along with being very efficient with room needs. I will be taking a spring break trip via your report-- I am looking forward to haing lots of fun

Thanks! I am really excited to be staying at the Hojo in a Disney view room. We won't be in the rooms much, but when we are, we'll be looking out that balcony or sleeping!

Our main focus will be Disneyland, but we have some other ideas too.

We are thinking of doing one or maybe two character meals. I was thinking maybe Goofy's Kitchen on the day we leave, and probably Minnie and Friends at the Plaza Inn. We like to do breakfast buffets. Has anyone eaten there? Do you enjoy them? We both love breakfast foods, and we know that buffets are not the greatest, but we haven't had any complaints with food at the buffets at WDW.

We are planning to shop at Downtown Disney on arrival day, and probably later in the week. We like to shop. We'll also take some time to go shopping at the Orangefair Marketplace because they have a Disney's Character Warehouse.

We keep going back and fourth between taking a day to go to Universal Studios. If I had more time, for sure, but our main reason for this trip is DL, not other things....

We will be taking a tour of Hollywood. We're not interested in the ones that do the celebrity homes, but more like the tours that do the city. We haven't decided completely on which tour yet, but we're researching. Does anyone have any experience with this?

We're thinking about doing a TV show recording while we're there. If possible one of these: Dancing with the Stars, America's Funniest Home Videos, Mike and Molly or the Price is Right.

We'll be doing both Disney parks and I love to take pictures, so there will be many on here for my TR. We'll be doing World of Color, Fantasmic and anything else! We are not sure if or when we'll ever get back to DL, so we want to experience as much as possible. I'm a little worried though, because before we left on our last trip, Blanche had gotten injured, and couldn't walk much or ride anything that jerked her around much. This was very upsetting for her as she loves the thrill rides, but had to sit them out while I rode. She is still not better, but she insists that she will be doing everything on this trip. Hopefully she will be able to! If not, we'll plan around that and take more breaks.

Feel free to make suggestions for us, give us tips and things not to miss. We are DL newbies after all!!!

Blanche is coming over to plan today! I am getting more and more excited about this trip. Don't tell her, but I'm going to try to convince her to change hotels for one that is closer to the gates. If you read my 2010 TR, you'll see that there are times when she just can't walk at all. She physically cannot move. I'm thinking it will be a little easier if we're just outside the gates. It is not fun because we both really wanted to stay at the HOJO and we were very excited about it and the Disney view room. We'll see!

I may have some more information for you today, if we make any decisions at all!

Patty, thanks for the suggestion of the high room. As you know, we got top floor. And we LOVED it!

Still taking steps with Walt

March 18,2012 Part 10: Still taking steps with Walt

After escaping the head hunters and seeing some bathing animals, in trunks, we headed towards Frontierland.

It is not advised that you use these mailboxes to actually send mail. It will not be stamped Disneyland, it will be stamped Anaheim, and it takes well, longer than snail mail. What's slower than a snail?

There were some very funny people out front here putting on a little show. It was hilarious. I wish we'd have remembered to go back and watch some more. I think I need to be making a better list next time and following it!


Funny Guys by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

By this point, Christine is teasing me that I like to take pictures.... actually, I think she was teasing me long before this, because she made sure to take our pictures on Jungle Cruise.

I started to get even more excited because we were now heading into the unknown, where no Dorothy has ever traveled before! Into New Orleans Square! Seeing as I'd never been to DL, I'd never been in New Orleans Square, so I was excited to see something that looked different from WDW.


New Orleans 1 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I was excited to see this!


Club 33 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Christine had to leave us for a bit, and she walked in front of my camera, stuck her hand out like a celebrity and kept on going. It is one of my favorite pictures, but sadly, not on flickr. Maybe one day I'll post a blurry picture of her hand that I've titled "No photographs, please".

Christine borrowed my camera again. (Boy, I think I really look like one of my sisters in this one! Rose and Blanche, can you tell which one?)


Club 33B by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Club 33B 2 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


Club 33B3 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

To be perfectly honest, it was an unquestionably special feeling to be where Walt had planned to entertain guests. It means that it was to be a very special place to him. I don't "idolize" him, but I do appreciate that he is the reason I have my love of all things Disney! So he's pretty special to me.

Any guesses on how many more updates it will take before I finish the tour?

I love New Orleans Square. I could sit there for hours and listen to the music and watch the world go by.

Daily Purchases for Day 1

March 18, 2012

1. A Cinch Sack similar to this one except it says Disneyland. I wanted to have it to use the following day on the tour. I used it a few times through the trip when I didn't want to take my whole camera bag. I could keep the cameras and one extra lens in that and I felt okay with that.
2. Some Disneyland Yoga pants! I was so excited to see these.
3. A Blue castle throw. I have it on my couch in the basement to use when I'm cold. It's the one you get for cheaper if you spend a certain amount of money. I think I posted a picture of it earlier.

food pictures are so much fun, you may have told us your real name, but didn't say what was in the plastic container

While the three hotels are close to DL it is a bit of a walk to go on the hotel tour. Hope is warms up for the rest of your trip.

Hi Blanche! I can't wait. One month from today and we'll be doing the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour! We will miss Rose, but we'll have fun! And we have SO much time!!! I can't wait!!!

Hi everyone! (If anyone is still there! )

We didn't get any Ellen tickets.

We have changed a few things around. The day we arrive, we are going to check in, and assuming that our room is not ready, we will head leave our luggage at the hotel and head to DTD for food. Either La Breagh Bakery or maybe Rainforest Cafe. We've never eaten there before and it looks like fun.

We will have to get our tickets too, our 8 day park hoppers are all good.

We'll do some shopping (and picture taking) and then head back to the hotel to put our things in our room. I can take my camera to DTD but I don't feel like taking it to the Outlet.

We'll head to the Disney Character Warehouse next to do some shopping there. Not at the other stores, just the Disney outlet. (Have you noticed anything yet?)

We may or may not (depending on how tired we are) head in to DL for a little bit. Otherwise, it will be supper at Mimi's and then bed... and fireworks from the balcony if we can manage to stay up.

On Sunday we have the Walk in Walt's footsteps tour. We will probably head back to the room to rest, because we're planning to hit DL for Fantasmic and some rides, trying to last as long as we can. It is a four hour time difference, so it might be hard to last until midnight.

As of today, the plan is to do the Tour of Hollywood on Monday, some other shopping at the Citadel Outlets (Any opinions?) on Friday morning, and to focus on the parks, DTD and the Disney hotels through the rest of the week.

We will do lots of rides, see as many shows as possible, and do tons of shopping. When we did a 3 day shopping trip to WDW (no parks, just shopping at an outlet mall, DTD and Disney hotels) I spent about $100. That was July 2009, and then in Aug 2009, I went to WDW to do the parks, and spent another $1000. My visa was a little worn in after that!!!

I plan on being pickier this trip, but still shopping!

And as far as taking pictures, I have a DSLR and I love to take pictures. I'm not the best, but I take TONS. Since I've gone digital, I have taken over 9000 pictures in Disney, and I've only been digital on my last three trips. I have a feeling I'll take more than 9000 pictures on this trip alone. I hope you all like pictures!

This is going to be a busy week! My report cards are due next Monday, but I have a busy week ahead, 3 fit camps (as usual) Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and Tuesday night is a big Church event (Catholic Women's League 50th anniversary at my parish) that I'm going to-being a Catholic Woman that belongs to my church! ) And Saturday evening is a huge benefit for one of the owners of my gym who was in a car crash a month ago. So basically, school and report cards have to come first! I might not get on here to update, so I blessed you with a few updates today to keep you covered! Hopefully you'll still want to read when I come back. Now watch me decide to procrastinate a whole bunch and do my trip report instead! Have a great week everyone!
