Hey! I made it before you got to page 3!!

I'm so glad this trip is on and can't wait to see/hear about it. I think a trip w/o kids and hubbies is exactly what Prof Von Drake would order!

I read that the ART buses will stop running after one hour the park closes. I would say the same thing that it would not be fun if you can't get on the last bus and your hotel is at the Ayres. Your welcome and hope u and D like the hotel next month.
Either they don't have the most updated rooms but they tend to show you their best which doesn't represent every room.

Hotels also use funky angles to make rooms look way bigger, etc etc.


Congrats on the upcoming trip! I'm excited for you.

When last I left in the non-planning pre trip report we were going to go to lunch at the Bbq. We have left any ride plans to the fact we have a few must rides and one definite we donít want to ride and that is ToT. Neither of us are really interested in it. Ironically we are laid back and want this to be a relaxing trip. I am so for that.

We had considered doing the Walk in Waltís Footsteps tour but have since decided that it is a block of time that we just donít want to use this way. I know that I would like to see Aladdin while we are there because I have never seen it but that remains to be seen.

Our next not plan is dinner on Tuesday the 22nd of February. We want to see WoC so we decided to do a dinner for it. We are going to eat at Wine Country Trattoria, now this not something I could do with WBG. He is a picky sort of eater, I am really looking forward to it. I didnít see the WoC when I was there in June because it was the week it opened and I was so not going to deal with those crowds. Big excitement!!

I donít know that we are going to spend the whole day in DCA, because it is a Tuesday I know that it is actually a prime day to play in Disneyland. So I think we might do the earl part of the day there and go over to DCA in the late afternoon. Our dinner is at 6:30 so I figure that we can have dinner and not have much time to wait for WoC. We may play this by ear. Further on this later.

I was playing online as I like to on the Disneyland website and the AP rates for the DLR hotels have gone down so plans maybe changing. More on this later.

You'll LVE the World of Color show!!! I really enjoyed our dinner at Ariel's.....I didn't find anything on the Wine Country menu that caught my fancy....besides it used to be a little more expensive....not sure it still is or not?? You'll be glad you went that route....the area you watch from is fantastic!! If you don't get on the railing in the front....I would suggest staying back (even back on the stairs) so your view won't be blocked by taller people.

I want a bit more grown up meal. And the fact that it is just D and I, and we are sharing expenses it will be cheaper. When I looked at the menu online I saw some pasta dishes, and I see that they have maybe changed their menu.

Wednesday is the day I just went crazy planning meals. :rofl: I had given D a link to the different places to eat and their menus wanting her input. So these are the places that I reserved. There will be other meals but these were the sit-down served meals. Although there is talk of another one in DTD but, I have one preference and she has another so that will have to be up for debate and probably Monday night or Tuesday lunch. Our breakfasts are taken care of by the hotel. Yay for the Ayreís Hotel!!

On Wednesday if there is anymore that we want to do at DCA that might be the time. Or maybe we will want to go to DTD for part of the day. I do know that at one point or another I want to go to the Uva Bar. Weather please cooperate on this one. I so want to have a Pineapple Upside Cake or another of their fun shooters. For any of you that havenít had a chance to sit out there and enjoy a drink I really recommend it. WBG and I had a ball there back in June.

Lunch will be at the Storytellerís Cafť. I think I may have to try the spaghetti because after reading Sherryís trip report it sounds so very good to me. Who knows though? I have wanted to try there for a while too and not doing the character breakfast is actually better for me. This trip is my grown up trip.

Now remember this is the no-plan plan so I will not even begin to guess on what we will do at this point so I am going to skip ahead to our dinner plans. We have reservations for the Cafť Orleans. Now anyone who knows me knows that this is my favorite part of the park. I can spend hours in that area just looking at everything and of course riding my two favorite rides. And I can say without a doubt I want to try the Pommes Frites, after that who knows? Letís throw caution to the winds!!! :rofl:
