Just found your trip report. So many heading down in June. Looking forward to the feedback before we head out in July.

I am right there with you on all the things we want to see and do - as well as finding down time for the pool and such!

Enjoy the trip and look forward to hearing all about it.

It is hard! We were just there in February 2009, so first things are those we didn't do last time.

Thanks! Hope to get the full report done next weekend after we return and before I head back to work!

2 SLEEPS!!!!

We did more packing last night and DD was bouncing off the walls!! She is getting very excited!!!

I am working long days this week in an effort to get things done and not feel anything is hanging over my head all week. I want to relax!! This is our first real family vacation. We frequently drive to Spokane to see family, but this is different. It should be a lot of fun!!

Oh, and DH is happy, we found a liquor store within walking distance! Now we can have a night cap after DD is in bed and not spend a ton!

2 sleeps for me too!

Hopefully I can sleep these last 2 nights. I can feel my stomach twisting up in knots, I'm so anxious.

So close now.

Definitely hitting what we missed first. And as to DH being happy for the bottle shop - totally with him. Plan on bringing my mini bottles with me. Though still may try the WoC drink It sounds yummy!

Have a great trip!!

DD woke up about 5:30am this morning crying. I met her in the hall way and this is what she had to say between sobs

"I had a bad dream that our Disneyland trip was canceled".

I had to bite my tongue to not laugh! What a sweetheart! Mommy would wake up crying from that one too.

Oh, how sad! I would've had a hard time not smiling if DD had done that. One more day and she can stop worrying.

Day 1, June 12

Today was travel day! Started out with a stupid decision on DH's part, but oh well!

I had a coupon for MasterPark at the airport. It was $59.95 for 5 days, and $12 for each day after that. Pretty good deal, if you ask me! DH decided to just check on how much it was to park at the airport. He went through, got a ticket, kind of hard to turn around now, and I saw the sign, $130 for 5-7 days. YIKES!!

Oh well! FIL had put us on the guest list at the Alaska Air Board Room, so we were able to relax in there before heading to our gate. DD and I sat together and DH was the row in front of us. DD was difficult to keep occupied, but she was very well behaved! We arrived and rushed through the airport with 5 minutes until the Disneyland Express left and we would have to wait another hour. Perfect timing! Thank goodness we did all carry ons!

We stayed at the Anabella Hotel. Great hotel. Only issue is next time if we stayed there we would ask for a second floor room. The people above us were loud and probably anyone would have made the same amout of noise. I was a bit surprised when we checked in and I had an envelope with a voucher for 2 classic breakfasts for each morning!! I had recently become the hotels friend on FB, and wonder if that is why I was treated! We only used it once, we had brought our own oatmeal for breakfasts, and found that to be quicker when we were trying to get out the door.

After getting checked in DH walked down Katella to the Liquor store and got some stuff so we could have night caps each evening. It ended up being a perfect way to unwind while waiting for DD to fall asleep.

For dinner we walked down to GardenWalk and met my cousin at the California Pizza Kitchen for dinner. When we first got there we walked around a bit. There seemed to be a lot of empty stores and it was not very busy. Not sure if the place is just slow to get going or what, but I was a little surprised. CPK was great! DH and I shared a Club Pizza, loved it! DD had a kids pizza and only ate half, so DH got the other half! DH and DD walked back and my cousin took me to Target to get some items we did not pack since we carried on our luggage.

We were in bed by 9, and laid in better at 9:30 listening to the fireworks from DL! Never actually went outside to see if you could see them, but they were sure loud!

Could not wait to get to the parks the next day!

Two pictures from around the Garden Walk, I loved the second one:
