With the money your trying to save, I'm suprised your not driving down and then fly to WI from Disneyland. I live in Tracy, it takes about six hours to drive and $60 roundtrip for gas (I drive a 2004 Grand AM) I know the drive is less than pretty. I figured we'ld only save a couple hours by flying after driving to the airport, going through security, and then transportation to the hotel.

Any-who, have a great trip, I'll have to live vicariously through you because your going when I want to go (my birthday). I had to settle for November.

I definitely considered driving to save money. Any future trips I will probably drive however since I am going to WI after either my friend had to drive back by herself or my car would have to stay at LAX for 10 days. My friend did not want to drive back alone and i imagine parking at LAX would cost me a whole lot more than I would save by driving.

Packing...

So I think I am going to start packing this week. So far I've thought of all the STUFF I need to bring but not the clothes!

I am NOT a typical girl. I think the last clothes I bought were for my WDW trip in May 09. I have some OLD clothes. I'm thinking a trip to ROSS may be in order but I tend to buy clothes there that are cute but then don't fit right. I HATE buying clothes. In fact my hubby buys more clothes for me than I buy for me!

I guess I will begin packing and see what I need to get to fill in some wardrobe blanks. I am hoping to get some DL shirts but not too many as this is still a budget trip

My clothes I take are the last of my concerns too.

So I have to change some of my plans.

The friend I am going with is trying to save money (even more than me!) and is therefore only going to purchase a 2-day Parkhopper plus the Halloween ticket.

This means we will spend all day in the park on Thursday, then Friday enter at 4:00pm with our Halloween ticket, spend all day in the park on Saturday.

Since Thursday and Saturday both have long park hours even if we take a break in the middle I think we will be able to fit a lot in.

Then whatever we missed that I want to do I can go back and do it on Sunday and Monday when I will still be there solo!

It looks good. What about ART passes? Or any priority seating for meals?

We are hoping we won't need ART. Hoping our feet hold up!

Not planning on any meal reservations. The first few days when I am there with my friend we will likely have CS meals.

When I am by myself I plan on a Monte Cristo from cafe Orleans. All other meals I am just going to play by ear. Even when I get the Monte Cristo I will play by ear.

Then it looks good. And you know if you end up needing ART you can usually get tickets at your hotel.

Changed my mind on the meals.

I decided to try and book the Minnie & Friends breakfast. My goal was to get empty park pics like I did at WDW.

I was able to get a Reservation at 8:20am on Monday. The park opens at 9am that day for regular admission and at 8am for MM.

I'm hoping not to many are taking advantage of the MM so I can get some pics of an empty park!

That's great and that bodes well for the park not being too terribly busy.
