I'm FINALLY going to DLR!
With just less than a week to go until we leave for the US, I NEED to share my exciting plans with someone, and my family and friends are all sick of hearing about it! BF doesn't mind hearing about it, but most of the time he has no idea what I'm going on about
Now I have never done a trip report or pre-trip report before and really have no idea what the 'rules' are, so please let me know if I do anything wrong!
So in a nutshell, here's our plans thus far:
Saturday 26th Feb
Leave Melbourne airport at 1:15pm Sat 26th Feb, get into LAX 14 hours later at 8:45am Sat 26th Feb Take a shuttle down to Anaheim and check in at HOJO. Spend the afternoon/evening finding our bearings and trying to combat jetlag. Neither of us have flown overseas before so not sure what we'll be dealing with! Watch the fireworks from our balcony that night.
Sunday 27th Feb - Saturday 5th March
Week in the DLR area, staying at Peacock Suites (will swap hotels before our brunch).
Sunday - 11am brunch at House of Blues, watch Fantasmic!
Monday - 9:40am brekky with Minnie & Friends, watch Magic, Memories & You
Tuesday - MM, 11:30am lunch at Blue Bayou
Wednesday - Universal Studios
Thursday - free day
Friday - 7:30pm WOC dining at Ariel's
Saturday - nothing booked yet, watch fireworks
Sunday 6th March - Wednesday 9th March
Fly up to San Francisco from LAX (lunch time flight), staying at Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf. All we have planned so far is an Alcatraz night tour on Monday
Wednesday 9th March
Early morning flight to Vegas, pick up hire car and drive to the Grand Canyon. Probably stop at Hoover Dam on the way through. Staying at Bright Angel Lodge.
Thursday 10th March - Friday 11th March
Overnight mule ride.
Saturday 12th March
Drive back to Vegas, drop off hire car. Check into Paris Las Vegas. See The Lion King at 8pm (best seats ever!).
Sunday 13th March
Mid morning flight back to LA. Fill in some time until our flight back to Melbourne at 10:30pm. Arrive back in Melbourne at 8:30am Tuesday morning Go back to work Wednesday...
It's going to be an action-packed 2 weeks lol!
