HalloweenTime DIS Diva Style, Oct 23-25 2009. Trip Report Has Begun!


Hello and welcome to my fantabulous Disneyland Pre-Trip Report!

I'm really super excited for this trip, mainly because I'M GOING TO DISNEYLAND!

About me:

Name: Wendy
Age: 24
Miles From Disneyland: 430 (About a 7 hr. drive)
Admission Type: Premium Annual Passport
Reason For Trip: It's Disneyland, is a reason necessary? It doesn't hurt that most of my DIS friends will be there.
Lodging: HoJo's (thanks to stacielee!), and I'll be sharing a room with Cristabel (disney-inspired)

Me:

That's my niece with me.

I have three days and two nights to pack in as much as possible, and I plan on doing just that.

Things I will not get to enjoy:
Casey Jr. Circus Trains
Storybook Land Canal Boats
Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years
Gadget's Go Coaster
Steam Trains
Orange Stinger

The only one I'm disappointed about is the Steam Trains, they are such a great place to take a break in the Disneyland Park.


My Plans, thus far:

Friday, October 23rd
Make people believe in the monkey bride
Ms. Sally's Surprise Luncheon at Storyteller's Cafe 12:30PM (*squee* I'm so excited for this)
Mickey's Trick-or-Treat Party at DCA 7:30pm (thanks to toocherie, tinkermell, fairykin and her mom for making this possible!)


Saturday, October 24th
Make people believe in the monkey bride
Magic Morning (Hopefully)
Breakfast in the Park with Minnie and Friends (My first time!)
Billy Hill & The Hillbillies
Dinner at Plaza Inn (I'm thinking about trying their famous chicken for the first time)
Fireworks
Fantasmic


Sunday, October 25th
Make people believe in the monkey bride
The day I go home



My trip report from last October: HERE


I promise I will have plenty of pictures to share!

Looking forward to reading your PTR, and hopefully to meeting you and the other Diva's! I agree about missing the trains, it was a nice way to take a bit of a break. This week is the first I've heard of the Monkey Bride so hopefully I'll be a believer by the end of the trip.

Woo-hoo! I can't wait to see you and your boyfriend again!

Another cool kid confirming the existence of the monkey bride.

I'm glad you're here Dawnikins! I don't remember the last time I had fried chicken, so it will be a kinda new experience for me. I hope you like Billy Hill!

Yay, my roomie is here! I'm getting sneaked into MM, well not really sneaked in but kinda blending in. I wish I could sneak you in, but I don't have that kind of power.

That would be great if you can meet up for a little while. If not, there's always February!

I hope you see the monkey bride, I promise you she's there.

Seester! I'm so glad to be seeing you again. I can't believe the last time I saw you was in Vegas, it's been too long!

We can try fried chicken together, and watch Billy Hill and then I can show you where the monkey bride is!

Disney Crafts!

I'm sitting here watching Aladdin on Disney Channel, getting super excited for Disneyland! I love the Aladdin show over in DCA, the Genie is the best!

Friday at work it was super slow, so I finally made my LGMHs. I don't know why I never made them before, it seems to me I've had the paint samples forever. There's a laminator at work so I was able to laminate them. I didn't hurt myself too badly making them, only snipped my finger a little with the scissors.
LGMH:



Earlier this evening, Steph (21yankees) posted this link over on Facebook: Disney Halloween Printables.
I knew I had to make the Tomb Sweet Tomb Candy Box, so I did. No injuries to report, I just have super glue covered fingers.

Tomb Sweet Tomb Candy Box:


I can't believe how close the trip is getting.

Maybe I'll just sneak in with a random group of strangers who are coming from one of the hotels. I think they can bring in five people per room, right? They'll never know

No one will ever now what you're doing. It seems like a lot of people are staying on Disney property this trip.

I'm so excited for Minnie's! I'm even more excited that I'm going with you!!!

I got the crown on this last Girls Trip. Someone brought them and someone else had an extra so I grabbed it. For the life of me I can't remember who had them. I'm planning on going to Michael's for some crafty supplies, so if I see some I'll bring them with me next week.
