I may do another installment later today. I have to wrap my brain around this a bit. I don't want to do it too quickly because once the trip report is done then the vacation is offically over.

Plus I'm lazy!!!

I guess I should get this moved over to the trip report board. Seems strange doing that. The pre-trip board has been "home" for so long.

I totally understand

But once it is done, time to plan the next trip and start this process all over again.

It is an endless cycle

Guess time is here for moving on up............to the Trip Reports

Yay! You got started!

I have to tell you ... I was secretly very worried you didn't have hotel ressies for Seattle! My DH would have a stroke if we left for somewhere without ressie's - I guess he's rubbed off on me!

Anyway... I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you got a little sleep, that the room didn't get any worse (i.e. crawly things ) and that you were soon on your way to see the mouse!

It was making me nervous too but HG only wanted to stay at "our" hotel and neither of us could remember the name of it and we couldn't find it on the internet - I guess because it was gone!

We've never had ressies before and have never had trouble finding a room - even on a weekend in the middle of summer.

Darn cruise ships!

I love Rob Thomas & Disney World equally. Is that a bad thing? I think not. :)

I used a whole can of lysol on our beds everywhere we stayed....not to mention on the door knobs, remotes, light switches, faucets etc Cant help it -- I get a little freaked out about sleeping where Thousands of other people have stayed

Oh Yeah Farrah! That makes me feel so much better to know we weren't the only ones with a yucky hotel room on our trip!

Sorry but YEAY!!!!!!

Just looking at your list of trips....6 years is a long time to wait...can't do that again.

I say pick a date and a year and run with it...

Waving hi to Annie!

I didn't blame them for not wanting to go either but they had to! It was either go there or in the parking lot!

I would love to go back next year but we'd have to go on a school holiday and the crowds scare me then.

6 years was a long time between Disneyworld trips but we had several to Disneyland in there. We have friends in LA and it is on the right side of the continent for us so makes it a lot easier to get there.

I am hoping for Hawaii next year but we'll have to see. We spent 3 weeks there a couple of years ago and loved it. Who knows.

That was some start. Sounds like a lovely hotel, I can't understand why you didn't take pictures.

Getting a little competitive about which side of the country is best are we Declansdad?

I was too horrified at the time to take pictures of the hotel but now I wish that I had. Makes for a great story but at the time I was just hoping I wouldn't catch something!

I love Disneyland. It is much smalled the Disneyworld but it has a cozy feeling to it. And I love that it is the original. But you certainly couldn't spend 7+ days there just at the park.

Hawaii was amazing. We actually cruised there from Vancouver and then island hopped in the ship. After we disembarked we had a week in Waikiki. Waikiki wasn't my favourite place but we rented a car and did lots of day trips out to the North Shore to see the waves and to the Dole Plantation, etc.

I hope to get there in a few years and maybe spend like 4 -5 days there at most since it is so small. Did you go to California adventure, too? What was that like?

Your trip to Hawaii sounds so cool...

So, you ready for your update??

California Adventure is nice but not as "Disney" as the other one. Completely California themed and the rides are like crazy mouse, giant swings, etc. More like typical amusement park type rides. We really like it but it doesn't scream "mickey mouse".

You can do both parks in 4-5 days easy. Then go to the beach!
