This is great, thanks for setting up.

DH and I will be on the October 14th Backstage Magic tour and cannot wait. We'll be heading to Aulani after that.

We're actually celebrating our anniversary on this trip.

Yes, thanks for setting up these Threads.

My DD are taking our first ABD trip in 10 days--Backstage Magic. We are so excited. She is more excited about Hollywood (typical 12 year old girl) and I am more excited about the days in Disneyland. The last time I was there I was about Margaret's age and went with my grandparents.

Us Too

My and my DW leave in 9 days (we are going a day early, I just don't trust the airlines to get us there on time so we always try to get to where we want to be a day early, when time and budgets allow). Have had some annoyingly bad airline experiences!

Either way, look for a fun couple (no kiddies) taking our first ABD tour. Okay, truth time, we are (just) over 50, but so very much 20 at heart. We love to travel together and both enjoy much about Disney.

I'm looking forward to the Muppet Studios the most.

However, that being said, also looking forward to the theme parks:
Indy
Star Tours (I still need Hoth and the Boba Fett sequences)
Fireworks
World of Color

Well, I could go on (and my DW will attest to that), so I'll see everyone on this trip in just few more short days.

Oh wait, I just read on the Once Upon a Time Facebook page, we are big fans, btw, that costumes from the show are going to be displayed somewhere at the CA park. Will be cool to see those too.

My husband and I are going on the Backstage Magic tour October 14 through 19th this year. This will be both of our first trip to Disneyland and LA. We're pretty excited!

Totally recommend it, and your 13 year old will love it. I had a "trip review" not really a trip report all set and ready to post but I hit the wrong button and deleted it

But if you are even remotely a lover of all things Disney you will enjoy this trip immensly.

I am a huge Disney fan!! My NY state license plate actually says DISNEY!! My daughter however LOVES Hollywood, so this is the perfect tour for us. I am so excited thinking about it I was almost in tears as I imagined actually being there and going to the Archives!! I had started a trip report and then stopped didnt finish it because I hit a wrong button too and lost it all, so its only half done LOL

We are heading there in a week! (February 17-22, 2013)

We are so excited about seeing all of the backstage places. We haven't been to Disneyland since the mid-1990s, so it will be great to see all the new additions!
