3 Siths and a Tigger- First Trip Report (Indiana Jones video is up!)

Hi everybody. I'm brand new disboards member. My name is Jessica. I'm a big Tigger fan as you can see by my avatar. My boyfriend (DmaxHawk) and I are Disney obsessed. I have decided that for our upcoming trip I will be taking photos for this trip report. Well everyone, here goes.


3 Siths and a Tigger
My DBF and I are taking my second trip to Disneyland. I say my second trip because he used to live in the beautiful city of Los Angeles. My first trip was in March of 2009 for Spring Break. It was great! Disneyland is spectacular! Well, this year we are taking 2 of our friends lovingly dubbed for this report- Levon (DBFF #1) will be Lord Chaos, Andrew (DBFF #2) will be Lord Magnus. My boyfriend Sal will be Lord Bennu and I'm Tigger. The reason for these names is that all three of them (LC, LM, LB) are HUGE Star Wars freaks. And I mean HUGE!!!
March 19th we plan to leave at 3 am. Yep. I said it. 3 am. That particular detail I'm not too thrilled with. I am sooo not a morning person. Lots of espresso is needed to get me going. lol.
Last year we stay at the Glendale Hilton. Well guess what ladies and gentleman. That's right. This year we are staying at the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa with a park view. I am so stoked. Our agenda for the trip is pretty laid back. Well do swimming, eating, and riding every ride we can possibly can. Rides were gonna be riding a million times will be Tower of Terror (Much to my chagrin, I will have no voice after each time we ride it.), Star Tours, Pirates of the Caribbean ( ), Indiana Jones ( ), Splash Mountain, and last but not least the Haunted Mansion. We will also be shopping around the park as well as doing things off-site. Those things include the Natural History Museum, Observatory, Universal Studios (Possibly) and Hollywood (Again. Possibly). After 8 wonderful Disney packed days and nights we will pack up on March 27th and head back to dry, hot New Mexico.

Hopefully, you guys will enjoy my photo documentation and "blog" I will keep everybody updated while we are planning the trip (the next 34 days anyways), our road trip out, our days in Disney, and our trip back. Well guys. thanks for the look and the read. I will be posting again soon.

Our trips overlap by a couple of days. lol

I would so not be thrilled about 3 am either, but I'd gladly do it if I could convince the kids.

Why not? You and Magnus will be knocked out. You slept most of the way even before you got

I probably won't sleep the whole time unlike last trip. I'll probably sleep for a while and then be up and ready to party.

Well guys. Time for a quick update. Today Lord Magnus and Lord Chaos bought their 6 day PH tickets. They arrive in 10 days. Talk about quick service. They will be joining us in the GCH. Cool tip- if you are planning a stay at the GCH and your package comes with the tickets/ lanyard/ trading pin, you can add other people to your hotel room for free provided they don't want the tickets and lanyard/ pin. In other news, Lord Bennu and I are having our tickets shipped to us. They will be here next week- 21 days ( )before the date we arrive. LB also managed to order a new video camera. I am hoping to include links to videos along with pictures. We'll see what we come up with when we are back to our home town and have time to edit. Well guys. I'm off to finish homework and continue planning our first day game plan. I'll share more on our game plan at a later date. Thanks for reading!

Ugh, homework. That's one more reason I am so looking forward to this trip. It means the class that gives me uber amounts of homework will be o-v-e-r.

There is no chance of my catching any Z's in the car. I am the one driving. Not only does it save my sanity, but there's no chance I could handle driving that fast down the highway with one of the girlsl behind the wheel. Makes me cringe just thinkin' about it. haha

Stitch, I'm glad you looking forward to reading my report. Hopefully it'll be a good one. Homework is never fun. I got mine done for the week which is nice. I never want to drive in LA. lol. A drive from here in Las Cruces to Albuquerque (4 hour drive) is about all I can handle. I can't imagine a 10 hour drive. Kudos to those of you that take long road trips and do all the driving.

Talking

Directions and a GPS always help. If I'm the one driving, I always have directions. Ok. Now for a quick update.


Back in January, my apartment was broken into. DBF had left his video camera at my house. Well......... it got stolen along with my laptop. Good news tho. He has ordered a new one and it will be here in time for our trip!!!! I am hoping to add videos to youtube so I can include them in my report. In other news Lord Chaos and Lord Magnus have already received their tickets. DBF and I will be receiving ours this week. I'll post up a picture once we have them in hand.

Hi all,

DBF here to Hijack the DGFs thread . Just updating things on my end and writing what has to get done before the trip.

First up..
Transportation:
I have the truly awesome job of driving the 11 hours to DLR from NM. I look forward to it every year. The things I have to get done before we leave are repairs, updates, tuning, general maintenance.

The Vehicle:
2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic 2500HD "Uziel"



Repairs

Under repairs I've got a cracked windshield from a rock launched from the tire of a RV and a folded-in bed I got from jack-knifing a trailer blocking nut-pickers during harvest.


This is the windshield



The bed..




Updates:

I've got this little thing that connects to the internet so you can google stuff and it will take you directly to it. Pretty cool. Need to renew the internet subscription on that..




Tuning:

From there I need to figure out how I'm going to get my +8000lb. (cargo/passengers included) truck to get 20+mpg.




Anyone want to help with my tuning?



Finally, General Maintenance:

Before we leave, I gotta change the oil and replace some filters, and also get an alignment.

Heres what Uziel drinks.



I'll be back later to keep you guys updated, hope you enjoy the read.
