Now that you've pointed that out, I can too! My friend put the Anne books on her Kobo (I think you can download them for free!) and I might be borrowing them during the trip. It's been a LONG time since I've read them.

Can you believe we will be at Disneyland in less then 2 months! So exciting. And this trip better have me and a healthier hip/leg. We are going to walk in Walt's footsteps. We really did decide in a quick change of mind, but I know I can't wait to go on this trip...but we will miss our third "Golden Girl" Rose. We promised her a special treat. hee hee hee
OOPS! I guess it's been a while since I've been on here!

Hi Blanche! I can't wait. One month from today and we'll be doing the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour! We will miss Rose, but we'll have fun! And we have SO much time!!! I can't wait!!!

Hi everyone! (If anyone is still there! )

We didn't get any Ellen tickets.

We have changed a few things around. The day we arrive, we are going to check in, and assuming that our room is not ready, we will head leave our luggage at the hotel and head to DTD for food. Either La Breagh Bakery or maybe Rainforest Cafe. We've never eaten there before and it looks like fun.

We will have to get our tickets too, our 8 day park hoppers are all good.

We'll do some shopping (and picture taking) and then head back to the hotel to put our things in our room. I can take my camera to DTD but I don't feel like taking it to the Outlet.

We'll head to the Disney Character Warehouse next to do some shopping there. Not at the other stores, just the Disney outlet. (Have you noticed anything yet?)

We may or may not (depending on how tired we are) head in to DL for a little bit. Otherwise, it will be supper at Mimi's and then bed... and fireworks from the balcony if we can manage to stay up.

On Sunday we have the Walk in Walt's footsteps tour. We will probably head back to the room to rest, because we're planning to hit DL for Fantasmic and some rides, trying to last as long as we can. It is a four hour time difference, so it might be hard to last until midnight.

As of today, the plan is to do the Tour of Hollywood on Monday, some other shopping at the Citadel Outlets (Any opinions?) on Friday morning, and to focus on the parks, DTD and the Disney hotels through the rest of the week.

We will do lots of rides, see as many shows as possible, and do tons of shopping. When we did a 3 day shopping trip to WDW (no parks, just shopping at an outlet mall, DTD and Disney hotels) I spent about $100. That was July 2009, and then in Aug 2009, I went to WDW to do the parks, and spent another $1000. My visa was a little worn in after that!!!

I plan on being pickier this trip, but still shopping!

And as far as taking pictures, I have a DSLR and I love to take pictures. I'm not the best, but I take TONS. Since I've gone digital, I have taken over 9000 pictures in Disney, and I've only been digital on my last three trips. I have a feeling I'll take more than 9000 pictures on this trip alone. I hope you all like pictures!

Latest plans

Here is our latest plans:

Saturday, March 17

Land at LAX, take Disneyland Express Bus to HOJO. (booked and pre-paid!)
Check in to HOJO, leave bags there (assuming room is not ready) and take camera, heading to DTD. Pick up park tickets. Maybe check to see if we can buy the coupon booklet thingy. Lunch at either Rainforest Cafe or La Breagh Bakery. Shop & pictures at DTD.

Head back to hotel, take things to room. Take ART to the Character Wharehouse store, either ART or taxi back depending on what we buy!

Supper at Mimi's (probably) and if we have energy we'll head to DL for a little visit. We probably won't because of the 4 hour time difference, so we'll watch fireworks and drink hot chocolate on the balcony before bed.

Sunday:

7:10 breakfast at Minnie and Friends! (booked)
9:30 Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour (booked)

We'll probably head back to rest after the tour, but we'll see. We hope to be in the park for the second showing of Fantasmic. I have ridemax, so we'll decide which area of the park we'll want to ride some rides in and plan it then. We've decided that since we have so much time, we'll visit the parks by sections. (And it helps Blanche since she has the whole hip/leg thing going on)

Monday:

Hollywood/LA bus tour. (booked)

Probably head to DL for fireworks

Tuesday:

Morning Madness - we'll focus on Fantasyland, because we do like to ride almost everything.

Stay in the park a while longer. Maybe head back to hotel for a break. We would love to see WOC Tuesday night, so I'll have to head over to get our fastpasses.

We may or may not head back to DL after WOC.

Wednesday:

We would like to eat breakfast at La Breagh Bakery and then head to DCA for a bit.

Thursday:

Plaza Inn for lunch at some point.

Friday:

Citadel outlets for the morning. We have a list of stores we want to hit and we're trying to keep it short. Without the third Golden Girl, we won't feel the shopping as much.

We will be in the parks in the evening for sure.

Saturday:

9:00 breakfast at Goofy and Friends

We'll visit the parks, see shows we haven't seen or want to see again, ride the attractions we want to re-ride etc.

Our flight home leaves at around 9:30 or 10:00pm so we'll see what time the Disneyland Express bus picks us up.

That's all for now. We do want to ride as many things as we can and see as many shows as we can, eat as much lovely snacks and food as we can and shop as much as we can.... and I'll take as many pictures as I can too!!!

Less than three weeks!!!
