Super Deluxe Mega Trip Reportinator! Now featuring 8/12 San Diego/Disneyland report!

Last year I wrote up a nice big pre-trip report for our DLR trip. I had every intention of following up with a post-trip report, really, I did! But when we came back I was so sad, so very sad, and I just couldn't write it! What can I say, I get post-DLR depression.

So now I'm back. From outer space. I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face...

Oh wait, sorry. Disco moment. And now you're all singing it, aren't you. It's OK, I am too.

Originally I didn't want to go to Disneyland this year. Say WHAT??? No wait, hear me out. This summer I turn 39, which means next year I turn 40, and I thought it would be good to turn 40 in the Happiest Place on Earth. I figured the Carsland Hype would be gone, and there would be some other new and impressive thing, and we could splurge and stay at the DLH again, AND tack on a trip to San Diego with a stay at a nice hotel there, and that would be lovely and expensive and I'd need time to save for that. So that meant this year would be low key, or something different.

But I couldn't think of anything that didn't involve lots of driving, or even more money. And DD started talking about "When we go to Disneyland this summer..." and it just sort of made sense to go back. And to tack on a few days in San Diego in the beginning, because really, could we possibly have dragged ourselves to San Diego after being in Disneyland? No. We would have stayed put in Disneyland and canceled our San Diego trip for sure.

So let's get down to business!

Cast of Characters:

Me: Divorced mom of 2, teacher. I have always enjoyed Disney, but I really fell in love when I took DD on her first Disney trip when she was 15 months old, and I was pregnant with my son. It was just the 2 of us, and seeing the magic through her eyes was amazing. We've been to a Disney park every year since then.

DD: Happy, creative, dreamer. She is a feeler, LOVES Disney, and can be cautious about rides. She has always loved the characters though, and will talk their ears off.

DS: Adventurous, practical, logical. DS is a thinker, and he also loves Disney. He wants to try all the rides, but is a little shy around characters.
