Well I had my pen and paper all ready to do some serious note taking until you mentioned a 5 hour flight! That's one tough pill to swallow. Maybe I can get over it though if you do a really good job of convincing me it is worth it through this TR. So no pressure...

I really am looking forward to learning all about DL. I'd love to go there at some point. Your sneak preview totally had me hooked! Can't wait to hear all about it!

I had forgotten to put the update to my title of my old TR at first, then posted it on a couple various DIS Facebook groups (and just realized, you should join our "Disney Mom's" group! Just sent a request for you to be added - fun conversation there!), so I think the Facebook folks got a jump start!

Is it just 1 park- the Magic Kingdom.. or is it called something else?
I knew they had at least one resort.. how many do they have and are they themed?
Can you do all of DL in 1 day? I've heard you don't need more than 1 day for DL.
Can wait to read all about DL!
I knew NOTHING about it before I became a TA, learned a lot being a TA, then even more researching it on my own...and now of course feel like I have a pretty good grasp on it! Of course there are hidden secrets to any park that you learn over time...

The Disneyland Resort is two theme parks: Disneyland and California Adventure. Disneyland is like the Magic Kingdom, with a few differences. They have New Orleans Square, WDW has Liberty Square. They also have a Toon Town (which is awesome!). The Castle is Sleeping Beauty's and all of Main Street and the Castle is smaller scale. California Adventure is unique...has a part that is similar to DHS, but the rest is all different.

There are three Disney owned resorts (Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel and the Grand Californian) with TONS of off-site hotels literally across the street.

And there is Downtown Disney. I will explain the great layout of whole resort in one of my first few updates. It's small and compact and so easy to get around in!

I think you can do Disneyland park in one day (or the majority of it anyway), but not both theme parks. You could get a LOT done in 2 days, but 3 or 4 is better. We did 3.

I was very, very nervous about our plane ride CLEAR across the entire country! That will be coming up soon...

You are not late, just on time!

And thanks about the hair! I forgot that in my last TR I still had pretty short hair, didn't I??? I decided to grow it out again. NYC haircuts are too expensive.

If you have not caught up yet- Iam going to DL in Late Sept.

I am eagerly and taking notes.

ETA: Henry is such a big guy. WOW
You are?! I had NO idea! I'm so far behind on your report! You are gonna LOOOOOOVE it! It's awesome, awesome. I can't wait to go back! Let me know if you have any questions, I'm happy to help!

And yes, Henry has SHOT up this past year. He's in size 5 now! My last TR he was size 3 in diapers.

Your name does look familiar...perhaps you posted once...or I'm just imagining it. Regardless, thanks for reading!!

I'm glad my pics helped! And I'm sure you saw several horrid pictures of random faces I make...Joe had the camera, so a lot more of my mug in this TR than normal.

I cannot wait to start sharing it. I DO understand why people love it more than WDW. I can't say I do...but, I completely get the DL love/passion that people have! I love them both!

The changes are going to be incredible. I can't wait to go back and see them!

Well, this trip report could be trouble for me. I am already desperate to go to Disneyland. I have a feeling that this isn't going to help!!

Bring it on!

Who hoo! I'm here!

We moved from Ontario to BC last summer so of course, this year's Disney trip is going to be a west coast trip!! We leave for a three week "tour" of like 8 states and our 4 days in Disneyland are smack dab in the middle. In fact, we're going to be eating with Ariel and her pals on the day my DD turns 9!!

Anyway, ya think you can have this TR wrapped up by July 14th? We leave the next day!

Looking forward to hearing ALL about what to do and what not to do on our trip!

Can't wait to learn about Disneyland! I want to do Lego Land and Hollywood and pretty much everything you guys did in a trip one day. I always thought it sounded really fun!
