Well I will have a colorful TR for sure - starting with a medical emergency landing in SAC for a passenger that passed out and was unresponsive. The rain hasn't been too bad but I have been fighting a cold and Roxy is starting to come down with one, so we are tag-teaming taking the kids to the parks. The good news is that starting tomorrow the weather will be nice and SUNNY!!!! Just in time for the Trick or Treat party

How awful with the flight. I hope that person was okay. That sucks that you and Roxy are both sick. I hope you both feel better before the trip is over, the last time we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel I was sick as a dog. It is a nice place to be when you are sick, all Disneyland TV all the time. I am glad the weather is clearing up, and I hope the rest of your trip is wonderful.

Yeah, it made for a colorful flight out for sure. DLH was a good place to be sick and was also a good jumping off place for DL. The weather was pretty wacky, but pretty good overall.

Yes, the person came back to and was given a bag of IV saline (didn't even know they carried that on planes) and there was a nurse on board who kept up with his vitals and such. Interesting side note, the flight attendant said that she has never flown and had an emergency where there wasn't a doctor/nurse/emt on board. Go figure.

The sunny weather was nice in a way, but it was also humid as all get out. Almost felt like WDW - lol

We made it back Saturday evening but have been unpacking and decompressing and such. Post trip tiredness and blues and all that. Just now getting it together

Day 1 Part 1 - An Eventful First Day

We woke up on Day 1 - Monday, October 12th, at 4am after 1 1/2hrs sleep. We had stayed up late doing all of that last minute stuff that you think you'll have plenty of time to do, but somehow ends up more complicated and time consuming - lol

Here's the Ts that we did up for the trip:









We made it to airport by 5:30am for 7am flight - check-in was easy with no lines. When we got to the gate we found out the flight had been delayed by 30 minutes due to icing on the wings trying to leave their first hop. I was trying to keep focused but was very tired and was developing a cough.

We took off for LAX around 7:30am with a flight time of just under 2hrs. But about an hour in we had an in-flight medical emergency. A 24 year old guy passed out and was unresponsive. A call went out for medical professionals and a nurse sitting a couple of rows behind us volunteered. She worked with him while we diverted to SAC.

It was a fast decent but the pilots did good. The paramedics were waiting when we landed and took him off pretty quicky, but we still ended up being grounded for about 1 1/2 hours due to the paperwork. We were back in air just before 10am and landed at LAX around 11am.

It was an easy trip to baggage claim and the on to the "green island" to wait for our bus. Of course Bean managed to find an animal friend


We had to wear DW and my pirate hats on the flight since they couldn't keep their shape if we tried to pack them. And I can tell you we got some looks here and there. Here's a shot of Pumpkin Girl giving me a "look" of her own while wearing Roxy's


It was only a 20 min wait for ME bus and the fam kept busy with a spirited game of "patty-cake" - lol


And then came our magical chariot!




Bean wanted to sit up front behind the driver, so I sat up there too. He was a nice guy and we had a good conversation. Unfortunately my throat was starting to get worse. But I perked up when my eye caught this!




And then were were on the grounds:









We made a quick stop at the Grand Californian:


Then back on the road


Thar she blows!






We got ourselves together and picked up our bags, tipped our driver and we on our way in :D







On to check-in with no line at all - whoohoo!

We were given a free upgrade to a premium pool/park view in Wonder tower - Double WhooHoo!!!!!!

I think I'm at the pic limit, so I'll jump right back in to continue Day 1 ;-]

Very nice! With some differences, your arrival was very much like ours. Except I only wished we'd stopped at GCH first; we went to DLH, they did the ticket/money taking there, then we moved over to GCH. Strange little differences....

Loving the pix you took along the way...wishing I'd taken some of those...
