From the top of my head:

DH, me and the twin boys going to celebrate their 5th birthdays in November (but no cruises in Nov, which is how the trip evolved).

Flights
8 Sept - PPQ/AKL/LAX
30 Sept LAX/AKL/PPQ

Beds
8 Hyatt House
9 - 16 Grand Pacific Pallisade Resorts, Carlsbad
16 - 23 Mickeys Hollow, Anaheim
23 - 30 Disney Wonder Pacific Coastal Cruise

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.
