Anyway, tomorrow we leave for LA.....it's been an awesome trip so far, the cruise was brill, the last few days at wdw have been awesome, although the weather is wet and humid.......I have a tan, and we just got an email to say we have been upgraded to business class on the way home, so collecting frequent flyer points and scheming helps big time......I was worried we would be over our baggage limit, but now I get to bring home 6 suitcases of 32 kg each...oh the humanity
Anyway, just checking in, have 1000's of photos/ food porn to share.....be home next tuesday so stay tuned.....
Congrats on the upgrade! Enjoy the trip home.

Awesome news re your upgrade, you lucky duck!!

You're a doll to offer to get us into the NZ lounge but I think it would be a stretch for all 3 of us? Actually, my DH has now remembered that his Amex card gets us into one of the lounges in the Tom Bradley terminal so we might chill out in there before the flight. If we don't see you before hand I'll keep an eye out for the tanned, relaxed gal with the scary carryon as I make my way (jealously) through business class en route to the cattle section....

Hope you have fun for your last couple of days, it's pretty sad that the trip is coming to an end....

My DH got pulled over for speeding on the Interstate in New Mexico today so I'm just pleased we weren't deported on the spot!

Hello all, we arrived home from our 2 week DL trip yesterday morning. All up bright and early today after a really early bedtime yesterday! All good on the trip, we really liked Virgin Australia and would definitely fly them over Qantas again. Loved the Paradise Pier and would stay there again over DL hotel or Grand Californian. Only downers were the weather - very hot (early to mid 30's, I hate hot weather!) and quite humid for California, plus bigger crowds than expected (I think lots of people have delayed their summer trips until now, due to Carsland and wanting to beat the crowds then). Will do my TR eventually, too much unpacking and washing to do first - back to reality!

We are flying Virgin and staying at PPH concierge level. After loving GCH on our last trip I'm glad to hear you really loved PPH. Looking forward to hearing about your holiday.

Hi ya
Hope you are having a great time, and I can totally understand how easy it is to speed over here, the DH was quite happy sitting on 115 all the way to port canaveral from Orlando.....which was great in the suv going there, not so good in the hyundi clown car coming back ( yep, another clown car story)

We pick up a car today to do Columbus day shopping at Macy's and then see LA galaxy soccer game in Carson, so exciting day planed.

Woke up at 11 last nit with hotel smoke detector beeping flat battery, DH had in ear plugs, didn't hear a thing, so off I toddle down to front desk.....

Looking forward tO our flight home, have had to arrange for my dad to pick us up in my sons fair lane, as our bags just won't all fit in his clown car....

Andona, will see you on the plane, we are 6 j, 6 k.....so come say hi.....you can tell my DH , he'll be the one pushing everyone out of the way to board early...elbows out ladies

Off to shower and prepare for shopping marathon.....wish me luck

I found her, or at least I found that carryon! they both look very tanned and relaxed....especially as they're heading into business class with unlimited free bubbly. My DH andDS are both laughing at me, excited to meet my imaginary DIS friend.

They're calling boarding now. Home soon...

We're all winding up
The upside? We've started planning the next
I may try and coincide it with my sisters trip to Vegas (DH wants to head back there for golfing) so we can share babysitting, but who knows...

We're looking at Disneyland, Vegas, San Fran and Honolulu, who knows when though...
