Oh my god! You're so lucky!!!! I love Anaheim, it was incredible!

Aimshna, am I allowed to bring thi kind of thing at board? I don't think so but if we are, perhaps could we bring you a french baguette and and a croissant for Victoria's son.

On the other side, in San Francisco, you have Ghirrardelli, you're so lucky! (if you like chocolate of course! I tasted it last october in dowtown Disney and it was delicious! :D)

I was kidding about the baquette - I had just saw on the Today show yesterday about how many baquettes the French eat each year. Breakfast of choice they said. If you like the Ghirrardelli choc you will love part of my FE gift. I like to bring something for part of it from our area! We visit Anaheim often - have season passes to Disneyland. Just took my grandson for a surprise 8th birthday and stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. We were family of the day and got upgraded to a suite. First time that has happened. I said I wished they would upgrade us to the Roy Disney suite on the Wonder but doubt that would ever happen. Can wish though right?

Oh my God! You sure had a blast! I was in Paradise Pier last october and loved every second of my trip. I hope thant in a few yers (at the end of my studies) I will be lucky enough to return!

Oh yes, I love Ghirardelli :D I'm looking forward for you FE gift :D

The funniest thing with the bread is that I don't eat it often. Just in sandwiches or when I'm very very hungry ^^ But the rest of my familly loves it. I was more interested by the DCL's bread with different tastes.

Where I live (in Provence in fact), we have a few specialities like honey candies or something called "nougat". Have you ever tasted it?

I hope you will be upgraded!

Bon Voyage!

We are leaving on Friday, so I just wanted to wish everyone safe travels! We fly from Tampa to Seattle on Friday night, then drive (rental car) from Seattle to Vancouver on Saturday where we will meet our friends and spend Saturday and Sunday with them. We are counting the days to board the Wonder! I am having to pack a whole extra suitcase for my FE's (much to my husband's dismay!

Safe travels everyone!

Safe travels to you and your family also. If you can post let me know how the drive up to Vancouver is - we are also driving from Seattle to Vancouver with rental cars - curious about border crossing.

Crossing the Border

We are also a little concerned about the time it could take crossing the border. I have heard it is a beautiful drive, but a friend of mine crossedd last month and said they were "bumper to bumper" for two hours trying to cross the border. I have heard it is "hit or miss", so we will take our chances. I will do my best to post and let you know how it goes (and any tips I can offer), but I will warn you that I haven't logged in yet from my iPad (which is all I will have with me), but hopefully it will work. Safe travels to you as well!

We are nearly packed and ready to go! We are driving to Vancouver and making a couple of stops along the way. White water rafting in Jasper tomorrow! So looking forward to some relaxation and pampering.

Safe travels everyone and we will see you on the WONDER on Monday!

Everything is sitting by the front door waiting to be loaded into the car at 7 AM for the trip to the airport. I think between the 12 of us we have 10 suitcases and 12 carryons. I have no idea what all we have but I am sure we will be missing something. Can't wait to get on the Wonder and relax. Getting ready for vacation is a lot of work.

We're flying out tomorrow afternoon from DC -- we have so many bags but I feel better hearing we're not the only ones! Wishing everyone safe travels and we'll see you in Vancouver!

We are in Vancouver now. Our GPS led us on a merry chase all over Washington! Border crossing wasn't bad, about 20-25 minutes....but it was at 12:30 at night!
Today we did the Vancouver aquarium. It was nice, but a little unorganized as far as the shows go. Tomorrow Grouse mtn and the suspension bridge.
Can't wait for Monday!!

Nancy, it looks as though your cabin is right across from ours. Hopefuly Ainsley and Kaitlyn can meet up.

Hi everyone! We are en route (sitting in Atlanta Airport) but our flight to Seattle was canceled last night due to weather, so they got us on a flight to Vancouver today (we were going to drive to Vancouver today). So, we will actually get to Vancouver ahead of schedule! So, in the end, all is well. Unfortunately I won't be able to share any advice about crossing the border. Good luck to all in your trek to the Wonder!
