Me too!

I have some questions for you - 1) Do you know if they have an HA suites and 2) Have you ever asked for an upgrade when checking in? How does that work?

I'm thinking I understand the 1st question: Here is a link from Disney~~
http://disneyland.disney.go.com/plan...accessibility/

I have no idea if that includes the suites??

As for the 2nd, I've never relied on an upgrade and never asked. I've heard of it happening (quite often) but it really depends on the time of year and whether the hotels are busy. When I've booked the Disney Hotels, I've reserved the type of room/view I wanted.......otherwise I'd be disappointed if we got there and had a view of the parking lot because we were hoping for an upgrade.

I can't tell either. I'll just give them a call tomorrow. I'm not really worried about an upgrade - just curious about how it works. We're fine with what we have. No disapointment here!

I'll be unbelievably happy just to be there! There are so many wonderful things scheduled for our time there that an upgrade would be icing on the cake.

FIVE DAYS UNTIL WE LEAVE!!
SIX DAYS UNTIL DISNEYLAND!!!!!!

This week will be very busy, so we decided to start packing today. It's been a while since I've flown anywhere - I forgot how hard it was to fit all of our stuff into one suitcase and one carry-on. (Since I'll be in my wheelchair and DD will be handling the baggage in LAX, we're trying to keep the bag count to a minimum.)

I ended up pulling out the dual-use space saver bags. I highly recommend these things! I'm not able to roll the air out, but if you have someone with you who has a lot of hand strength, it saves a TON of room! We're about 3/4 finished, with room to spare! Thank goodness for the washers/dryers at the resort!

I've made a backpack for the back of the scooter (to hold water and other random things), and a backpack for DD to carry things in the parks. They are lightweight and easy to flatten if we need to put them in the suitcase. I didn't quite finish the hats I wanted to make, but that's okay. According to AccuWeather, it will be BEAUTIFUL! We'll be happy to get out of the dreary, rainy weather of Southern Oregon.

On Monday I'll call DLE to arrange for our shuttle. We need to reserve because of the wheelchair.

Only one more thing....Why can't we leave NOW??

I know the feeling!! We're not packed but we're ready to go too!! Unfortunately I don't have enough clothes for everyone to pack now.....I'll be doing laundry Wednesday and hopefully packing almost everything that evening. Thursday will be playing Tetrus and trying to figure out how to get everyone and all our stuff into our mini van and not feel like this~~

In approximately 36 hours, we will be waking up to head for the airport! Everyone is officially jump-out-of-our-skin excited - even Mom!!

Unfortunately I have hit a little bump that I'm hoping won't get in the way of me getting on the plane. Yesterday was a very long day. It started with my last PT session of the year, then shopping, then laundry and house cleaning, and going over all of the details of the trip with Mom. By last night, I was really sick to my stomach. I spent half of the night dealing with that, and woke up to the first horrendous migrane I've had in years. I'm still pretty shaky, but hopefully the worst is behind me this time. I'm so glad we have already packed most everything so I can lay low until we leave. Tomorrow I have to go in to get my port flushed, but that's it. My entire focus is on being healthy enough to travel!

SO, my only priority for the rest of today and most of tomorrow is to sleep as much as I can and hope this shaky feeling will pass. With so many wonderful things planned, I REALLY don't want to cancel or postpone. Wish me luck!!

Much better! I'm up later than I wanted finishing up (we're leaving the house at 4am), but that's alright. WE'RE GOING TO DISNEYLAND!!

Drive safe!

Just cleared security! We are exhausted and can't wait to board and sleep for a couple of hours. Fifteen minutes and we will be on the plane. I can't believe we are actually going!

We're back! It was a wonderful trip! We had a few challenges, but they didn't stop us from having a memory filled trip. I was going to start the TR tonight, but I'm still pretty worn out. I should start tomorrow if I get my camera back from mom (it ended up in the wrong suitcase). Stay tuned...
