Impressive that you persevered to find the sign, what a total UGH of an experience. I hope getting to the pier was relatively painless after all that.

Can't wait to meet you next week!
It was so fun meeting you!!!!!!

And when you get so far as planning your trip to Europe, head this way with questions about coming to the UK
I have TRs on deck...I really want to write about my cruise experiences from this year too, but we'll see...I always think I can do a "quick" TR, but that never happens.

Joe and I were talking about Europe the other night, we want to do an ABD for sure (open to location), Disneyland Paris and Germany. We are thinking maybe doing London for a few days, and possibly the ABD in Italy (Joe's first pick). I have no idea yet...BUT, when we do figure it out, I'll let you know!

I was soooo nervous about LA traffic! It wasn't that bad, but ANNOYING. Oh Lord - just wait for my next update.

You found the sign!!!!

So glad you ventured off property, I wasn't so brave.

Summer trip in my siggie and hopefully soon the DL trip.
It was awesome seeing you again!!!! It was so fun seeing everyone, I kept forgetting who I had already met in real life because it just felt like I knew everyone already.

Glad you finally made it!
I am SURE you are right! He did NOT get it at all!

I loved your updates. So glad you got to see the Chinese Theater and you found the Hollywood sign. We've only been to San Francisco (and that was actually sitting at the airport waiting for our connecting flight to Las Vegas after flying home from Hawaii), but I would love to go to LA/Anaheim some time.

I'm not up to that part in my TR yet (I actually just got it started), but I hope your check-in at OKW goes a lot better than us...very disappointed in that experience last month.
Oh Kathy, I understand getting behind-and I haven't even had the battles that you have of late.

I really want to get to San Francisco sometime, it's always been on my "list" of places to visit. Maybe a California Coastal cruise is somewhere in my future.

I read about that in your TR since! VERY frustrating. Ours, thankfully, went very smoothly.

Your little boy is so handsome. I love his hair!

I have a question for you. Which Disney do you prefer? DL or WDW?
Whenever I do planners for Disneyland, or even look at my own pictures, I want to be there NOW too!

Thank you for the kind words about my little man. We were surprised with the red head, but it's recessive on both sides, so it makes sense!

That is a TOUGH question. In many ways we like WDW better, but in other ways we like DL better. I will say Disneyland has better entertainment, better upkeep on rides, and many of the rides are just better in general. WDW is better in being it has Epcot and Animal Kingdom - two very unique things you just don't find even a glimpse of at Disneyland. Disneyland is EASY. Oh my gosh, so easy. Walk to the park, walk to your resort. Park hopping doesn't require a mode of transportation and another bag check! With little kids, Disneyland rules. But, WDW is better for a longer stay - you get immersed into the "bubble" and you don't as much in Disneyland because once you step outside the park area you are hit with real life instantly. Harbor Blvd is a BUSY road...real life is just outside...WDW is a complete escape with no need to ever leave property.

I think I lean toward Disneyland a bit more at this point in my life. My kid is 5, so DL is easier...plus it still holds the novelty factor with that we've only been there once, know what I mean?
