Yay! Found your TR! As my 5 year old DD would say, those pictures of Sean “make my heart smile.” : It reminded me of the saying “God gives special children to special people.” Even though I know what’s in that box, I’m looking forward to finding out like everyone else. The suspense is killing me.

I bet it is! I just finished 100 updates on the DISmom TR, and now I have to take Tyler out, so you will have to hold your suspense a little longer- I sincerely hope it does not really kill you, Tricia.

And I love that expression- those pictures make my heart smile, too.

You lived in SF? What a wonderful place. When? For how long? What part did you live in?

You are right, size matters!! And concierge at this particular hotel means a LOT- it is thought of as one of Hyatt's BEST Regency Clubs- it was excellent.
Yep! Probably my favorite place I have ever lived (and I have lived in a LOT of places ) except for the expense. Let's see, I moved there summer of 2001 - I can remember that because I moved from DC, so 9/11 was horrifying to me having left all of my friends in DC and NY (went to law school in NY State). I left summer of 2007 when I knew my adoption of my daughter was going to go through and that I would no longer be willing to work 7 days a week and 12-hour days. But, man, I still miss it - such a great town.

Size DOES matter! Let no one tell you otherwise.

I am getting so many great tips from you! I will definitely look into Hyatt Regency when we take our trip to SF! Can't wait to see pictures from teh club level.

I mentioned this in a pm but wondering if you priced out Virgin America. They have a great main cabin select category and closer to your trip you can upgrade. However, I know you said you used miles so of course if you had that many United miles you are going to use them to save $$!

Podsnel,


You are my favorite trip writer on these boards, and that is saying a lot since I read almost every one. I am really excited to read your latest since I am from California and Disneyland is my home park. I was wondering if at some point you could add links in your signature as others have done to your past trip reports.

behind as usual. Can't wait to see your photos of San Fran. When we were out there two years ago it was such a blur. I barely remember any of it. Loved that you got to see so many Diser can't wait to hear all about the special surprises.

Don't forget you were going to send me some breadcrumbs so that I could find your DISmom's TR.

Thanks for coming over to my thread!

Hi Ellen! I am here and looking forward to read about your adventures!!

My first trip to the US was in 1986 to visit my aunt who lives close to San Francisco. When she was showing me around the city one place we visited was the Hyatt because of the spectacular lobby and ever since then have I wanted to stay at this hotel! So I am very envious that you got to stay at my childhood (or more teenage) dream hotel!

Woo hoo! I am in! I want to be you in my next life so I can have fantastic travel experiences all year round! Seriously though, I bet your TA IS in mourning. Now you get to plan all your own adventures and benefit from that. Smart move girlfriend!

You got to meet Jenny. That's so awesome! I forgot you were in DL at the same time. I hope I get to meet her in May, but I'm afraid its up in the air now that her Jan cruise was canceled.

I am also dying to go to DL. I am thinking 2015 in the spring. I like what you planned. San Fran to Yosemite to DL. I will be following along closely to see your exact itinerary.

Your view in San Fran is amazing. How cool!

I also love all the pictures of Sean! He looks so so happy during your vacation in Florida. You vacations sound wonderfully successful.
