The Absolutely Amazing, Magical Christmas Adventure!

We're baaack!

It was a an amazing eight days full of new experiences and shared joy. We connected with old friends and met new ones along the way. This was one of the best trips we've ever had to the magic kingdom, but not because of the rides or souvenirs. What made it magical was our appreciation of the time together in a place full of Christmas cheer.

Travel dates: December 6th - 13th, 2012
Travel method: Alaska Airlines, shuttles, and various cabs
Accommodations: Doubletree in Culver City (1 night), and Paradise Pier Hotel (6 nights)
Ages Represented in Group: 18-over 60
Disney Resort Experience Represented in Group: Novice to DLR Veteran
Cast of characters: Me (41), DD (18), DMOM(She asked me not to say), Various friends

As promised, I will be sharing our experience with you. The DIS has been a wonderful source of information as we planned for this trip. I figured I should contribute by providing our experiences.

I will be posting as much information as I can remember. This will likely be a photo-heavy report. I didn't take as many pictures as I usually would, but there are plenty to help tell the tale of an Ultimate Christmas Adventure! :-)

Here's how it'll be broken down:

  • The Day Before
  • Day One: Art in Los Angeles
  • Day Two: Thoughtful Tolerance
  • Day Three: We Made it to DLR!
  • Day Four: Mom Finally Arrived!
  • Day Five: Lunch at the Club
  • Day Six: Security, Tour, and New Friends
  • Day Seven: At Last, Time for Rides!
  • Day Eight: Our Final Day
  • Final Reflections
As some of you know, a lot of things changed over our 2 years of planning. If you don't know what I'm talking about and would like to view my Pre-Trip report, It's available here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3006849

We've been on many DL trips, and each time I vow to complete a trip report since many of your reports help me in the planning stages. Every year (until now) I dropped the ball. That won't happen this year! I will finish this trip report! I'll be including the many many good details as well as the few bad ones. I hope you enjoy!
