First a big thank you to everyone on this thread who helped share my excitement and listen to my ramblings about trip preparation and all the other details. It is great to be able to share your excitement with other people who are in the same position.

We had such a wonderful holiday! 11 days at the Disneyland resort is definitely not too many....except maybe for my wallet

There is not much that we missed. We ticked the attractions and entertainment off on the maps as we did them and other than the things that were under refurb we only missed 2 and they were no big deal to us.

We loved our cabana day at the Grand Californian on Superbowl sunday.That was true luxury. DD swam all day and DH and I watched the game in the cabana with a picnic lunch.

The Villas at the Grand are awesome and the convienience was definitely worth the cost. It was so great to be able to walk back and pick up a coat and grab a quick drink and have a bit of a break and be back in the park in 5 minutes.

As I left the park for the final time on sunday evening....I walked through the tunnel....turned and looked at the bronze plaque above me and said my thank you to Mr.Disney. However,unlike last time,I did not cry,but smiled all the way back to my hotel. I truly felt happy and fullfilled.

We are now annual passholders and I thought we would go back in September for my 50th bday..but I think I am good for at least a year now....
but we will see
Susie,
Glad to hear you had a wonderful time! Now that you all are AP holders it's never really "goodbye.." BUT " Til next time.."
The Viilas are awesome aren't they?! Can't get any closer than that!

Almost time

We leave in less than 36 hours. DH flies into Atlanta from Philadelphia Friday afternoon. Then we (me, DH, DS7) fly out to Anaheim at 6:00am Saturday morning. Not thrilled with the early flight but looking forward to the Disney magic that awaits us.

Finally started packing some stuff last night.

Got our suitcases out of the guest room and into our bedroom.

Figured out which snacks I had purchased over the past couple months, and opened them and put them into a packing cube.

I am not packing clothes until Sunday morning.

DS still has no clue.
