Nice!

I love the pic of the Axiom standing in front of Goofy.. .but his hand is out and I expected to see Tinkerbell.

Also, the pic of you guys looking cold and wintery in front of the snowy castle is SO GREAT! How very festive!

Nice update!

Oh, that's great, blame it on the little guy. How original. He must've read the schedule wrong with his one eye.

Hey Wazowskilover,
Good trip reports! Thanks for posting them and the pictures. Your friends/family's expressions crack me up! You all are very expressive people; looks like you all have a real good time.
I was there last January during the same time frame and it was crazy rainy! My jeans were soaked up to the knees and our shoes were soaked too. It was freezing cold too! But every ride was a walk on so that was awesome. I can totally relate to the bummer part of the rain though, especially when only going for a short trip. I love your designs for your shirts and the blanket/hoodie. Awesome. You're very creative! You should consider selling some of those things online.

Thank you DSF !!!! Wasn't it crazy how it rained like that ? We were constantly checking disneyL0VE's phone to check & see what the weather would be like. It was nice to have little to no line at all though !

Update!

Hey guys !

So after about a couple of weeks on holding out and asking questions about Hojo's, I've finally booked our room for January 3rd - January 6th ! I booked for 3 nights and got the entertainment rate for 2 of them and then had the opportunity to use my AP discount for the first night. SOOO total for the 5 of us in the Deluxe Room with Queen beds for 3 nights its going to cost $300.38 ! So its about $60 per head for the whole weekend. That is totally a steal I'm completely stoked now

I think we have a set cast for this trip and it includes the DIS family quartet : me, Shyboy72, TheAXIOM, and disneyL0VE. Before she wasn't going to come buuuuuuuutttt of course she couldn't pass up another trip that ends on her birthday I think instead of leaving in the morning on her birthday, we should wait until lunch and have a celebratory lunch/drink since it will be her 21st! The 5th person to join our extravaganza is our cousin Jesse (he is the brother of the guy from our last January trip). Its so easy to get our family mixed up because we have so many people in our family. Its just easy to say yes and agree haha.

What is pretty exciting about him is he has lost the Disney magic and hasn't really experienced much except being present at a couple of family trips without an agenda and knowing what to look for. So I'm really excited to kind of open his eyes

One of the things that he has never done that I want to have him enjoy is a character meal. To keep the times rollin and to try new things, we have decided to go to Minnie & Friends. I'm pretty excited about it because we'll get to take pictures with different characters this time. I'm not really HUGE on breakfast, but since it is a buffet, we're gonna get our money's worth for sure !

So I guess this is the beginning of my Pre-Trip report since it is approximately 29 days until our amazing trip !

Meet the cast :

TheAXIOM



disneyL0VE



me, wazowskiLOVER: )



Shyboy72



cousin Jesse




Of course, I chose the most attractive pictures of our lovely family

Our first day is to leave here from San Jose at around 4 am. I know TheAXIOM is gonna fly over here and do the roadtrip with us, I'm not sure about disneyL0VE. Once we get to the hotel, we'll check in and deck it to those magical chiming turnstiles and head straight for Indie (its kind of a tradition )

Jasmine, you’re going to love the Hojo! Seriously. The walk is a breeze. The grounds are pretty and everything was so clean. I’m a picky girl when it comes to hotels and I was very happy. So was Jesus! He said this is going to be our regular hotel!

Yay! Your trip is almost here!!!!!

OooOOo !! How great I'm glad. I trust your judgement, so I'm sure I'll probably fall in love with the place.

For this past trip I bought the toddler size backpacks because I really wanted the Buzz Lightyear one that I have Unfortunately I think I'm going to have to retire it because it really isn't getting the job done right unfortunately. The reason I am saying this is because I have my tripod with me and that thing is NOT fitting in those baby backpacks. So I'm thinking its time to purchase a new one and this is what it looks like :



I'm picking grey so that just in case the guys will take their turn wearing the backpack they won't be as embarrassed as they would be if it was black and pink

Its on sale on Amazon for $22.99. I think I'm going to get it!

Hello All

Since we will be driving, I've already came to the idea that we will buy water and snacks so we can save some major $$$. I've been thinking about it as well, and I was thinking that we could also bring food so that we won't have to keep eating out. You think that will save on some money ?

I was thinking of bringing lunch items in our bags and just worry about dinner outside. Anyone have any ideas on good cheap meals I can make/bring to the park?

I really like that backpack, it's cute! But still neutral for the boys to wear if they need to. I say get it!

We brought breakfast food this past trip and didn't really eat it. We always bring bottled water and juices to take with us. We also take small snacks, granola bars and stuff like that.

The food for us at DLR is hard to resist! But also even though we're big eaters, we could each eat a pretzel and a coke and be full for a couple hours.
