Yep. I really thought our trip last year would be a one and done but I was wrong. My heart definitely belongs to Disney World but I loved DLR as well. So the plan will be to take two weeks ... fly into San Diego to spend a few days with family & definitely go to Sea World, then drive up and spend about a week in Disney and then drive up to San Fran for the rest of the trip and fly out there. Course I have to figure out how to pay for all that!

Here's the plan for the motels we'll be staying at for our trip.

Sept 30, we'll stop in Sacramento/Roseville & stay at the Homewood Suites:




Oct 1 to 8, we'll stay at the Residence Inn-Maingate:




We'll spend one night in Torrance, staying at the Staybridge Suites:



Then our last night on the road will be in Red Bluff at the Hampton Inn & Suites:



Pics are different sizes, but they were "borrowed" from the motel's websites & google images.

The hotels all look great ... especially the Maingate.

And yes, winning the lottery would make things so much easier!

I just got Shyann's allergy testing results in the mail......holy cow......we're in for a wild ride!! We already knew she was allergic to eggs, but we also found out she's allergic to milk, wheat, peanuts & soy. She's also allergic to cat & dog dander, elm & walnut trees, ragweed & cockroaches.

Cutting eggs out was already a process, but to avoid wheat & soy is gonna be killer!! Soy-lechtin is a biggie in things right now & of course wheat is pretty widely used.....yikes!!!

Well you still have meat, potatos & other veges (except soy) and fruit but it is going to make it pretty hard to eat out anywhere but a salad bar or to eat anything that has been processed or convinience foods because they are loaded with that stuff!

It's a good thing she likes vegies!! I'm just concerned about getting her a healthy balance. She's not a meat eater (except for shawshish/sausage as she puts it) lol Requesting the dr refer us to a nutrionalist/dietician so we have all the facts & help in this area.

one of the assistant teachers in my labs schools little girl is allergic to a ton of things to on top of being a hugely picky eater she says a lot of the "health food stores" have things her daughter can eat. Sounds like shell need to go vegan though lots of fruit and vege! I hope you get a good nutritionalist that sounds like a challenge

Thanx Sid!! It will take some research & careful planning, but in time....we'll get this all figured out. It might be the way for me to go as well. I've not been tested, but I have lots of issues with food......so I think I may have allergies to milk & wheat myself. I'll be curious to see if I feel better by eating right along side Shy!!

It would be hard to go vegan without soy. My cousin is vegan and a vast majority of her protien is soy. Does shy like beans in general? You might be able to get some protien in her with homemede bean based soups/stews

Shy LOVES beans....you can give her beans (of any kind) in her bowl & she'll eat them all up.....that's a bonus for sure!!!!

Just picked up a couple items to try & couldn't believe the prices for allergy-free groceries....ridiculous!! I understand charging more for "organic" but sheesh, people with allergies don't chose to be.......in sticker shock!!

The AP site announced Mickey's Halloween Party Dates!!!!! The first party is Sept 30.....that is awesome news for me!!!! We were really hoping we'd miss the first party night.......heard it's crazy busy......so we'll attend twice during our trip: Monday (unusual night, but that's what they listed) Oct 3 & Friday Oct 7th!!!!! So excited to see the dates announced. Now, will I get money in time to purchase my AP, so I can get the discounted ticket price.........might just have to wait for general sales & pay full price......time will tell!!!
