Wow- what an amazing airfare deal! That's excellent

Each day I 'trawl' the boards for airfares.... I think we'll just have to bite the bullet and lock in our flights soon, especially since we leave on day 1 of the school hols.

Carousel looks great! Lots of recent refurbs and you can't beat that location!

So many exciting things to look forward to!

Jumping in a quick bit of info I just found!

I am going to surprise the DD with a night out at the Pirates dinner Adventure show. I have discovered that as of the 19th of April, the ART system now are running their shuttles out to Beuna Park!

Has anyone got any feedback on this particular show? We have been to the Medieval Tournament dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it and as the DD has a thing for all things pirtaes, I am sure we would enjoy this too. Another attraction is I can now get there on the cheap and the tickets are often buy one get one free!

I also noticed the ART now services Westfield Main Place mall at Santa Ana which I just adore! It has my 2 favourite stores with a Macy's and a Disney store!!!

Last time we were there I spent an absolute fortune on cabs to and from this mall! Now I can get a 3 day bus pass each for just $10.00

Did someone say more spending money???!!!

I loved reading your last trip report! Nothing better than Disney at Christmas time. We were in WDW this past December - it was great! We'll be in Disneyland mid-October. One day we plan to do a city bus tour. Question - is there another tour you wished you would have done that would have given you more time at each stop? Can you tell me which one you did? Right now I'm looking at the Gray Lines tour. Any help would be appreciated!

I'm here...

I just loooove reading your posts. One of these days I'll start my own PTR, but I keep changing my mind about our accommodation. Just heard about a great deal on GCH but need to work out whether it's worth more than double my original budget

In the meantime, I'll enjoy reading all about your planning. Hope you're feeling ok,

Liz

Hi Sue ... enjoyed your last TR so much that I have subbed to this one! Look forward to living vicariously through you ... no trips on the horizon at the moment as my eldest will be going to high school next year and we enter the wonderful world of school fees! Anyway, look forward to hearing about all the plans and I know you will do it in style!

Hi Tammie!

So glad you found me! I really can't wait for this trip.I didn't think I would be so excited, but it's all I talk about! Lucky I have the Disboards though otherwise I would drive my poor hubby crazy!!!

It's going to be fun to count down with everyone

Hi there

So glad you enjoyed reading the last report! It makes it all the more special when you can share your experiences with like minded folk ( especially those with an obsession for all things Disney!!! )

I am looking forward to getting to WDW one day and I am sure to see it at Christmas would be just spectacular. I bet you had a ball

In regards to the city bus tour, the one you are looking at sounds like it could be the one we did as it was a Gray Lines tour. We started out at a historical building in LA, then it was onto Hollywood. We only had an hour there and it just was not long enough. By the time we found the stars on the sidewalk that we wanted to see, we had time only to pop into the Disney Soda Fountain store and throw back a sundae
Then it was off to farmers market and The Grove for lunch. Again,only enough time to find something to eat and then it was back on the bus. We drove into Beverly Hills and down Rodeo Drive. I would have liked to have walked around, but alas, we were headed to Santa Monica so no time to stop.

Then it was off to Santa Monica pier. From memory, we had about 1 and a half hours here and it was the longest stop. Then it was into Venice beach. It was getting dark by then so we just popped out for a quick look and got back on the bus.

So, no, I would not do this tour again. If I had of known from the start that it was very go, go ,go, I never would have booked it.

Next time we will get a bus into LA and take our time to look around. DD and I desperately wanted to go to Madame Tussauds but there was no time. I also wanted to check out the theatres and there is a viewing area for the Hollywood sign that we didn't get to either.

At least we know for next time!

We are tossing up whether or not to venture into LA on the upcomimg trip. Just something we may throw in!!!

Feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to help out

Helloooooooooo

So glad you are here!!!

Oooooh, a deal at GCH, now that sounds grand ( ha ha ha!!!)

I was a bit the same re the accomodation. I desperatley want to stay on property at least once in my life, but when I can get a room at the Ho Jo for that $59.00 rate, I just can't justify the extra.

I am looking at changing the way I have our accomodation set up at the moment. I think I would rather stay at the Carousel Inn at the start of our trip rather than the last 4 nights. I have read mixed reports and I know the Ho Jo like the back of my hand, so am thinking I would rather finish the trip there as I know the laundry set up and the little shop.........it will keep me happy!!!

And, yes, feeling much better than I was a few weeks ago. I wish the damn thing would go back into remisson and give me some peace! I usually have a flare up this time of year, so nothing new!!! I will be fighting fit by October though

I actually said to DD yesterday at 2:40 ( that's our flight departure time ) " do you know where we will be in exactly 6 months..........on the plane" Not that I am excited or anything

It's going to be a fun count down to our trips!

Sue

I know what you mean about hotels. I absolutely love the Hojo ( and their $59 rate!), so we've decided to split our stay. We will stay the first 6 nights onsite and the last 5 in two interconnecting rooms at the good old Hojo.

I tossed and turned all night thinking about staying at the GCH, and how much $$$ it was going to cost, and DH said " if we don't book a room there will you kick yourself once you clap eyes on the place in September?" Well, the decison was made for me wasn't it? Oh well, it's only money

My girls are super-excited - it's going to be a long countdown!

Well a very big howdy hey and welcome

I must say I am glad to be counting down and sharing our plans! It makes it so much more enjoyable and I love hearing of others stories and tips too!

Ah school fees, they can be a killer can't they!?

And as for doing things in style...............is there any other way???

Liz,

Hmmmm - a good deal at the GCH.........maybe you might have to let me know about that. Like you say, it's only money

And have you thought about making a countdown calendar for the girls? They are lots of fun and you can include little treats, disney trivia questions, stickers etc?

We also watch an animated Disney movie once a week and take it in turns to pick!

I always make DD an airport bag too. I have started to get things already. I have found a really cool Halloween trick or treat bag and I am going to fill it with bits and pieces. I am always on the look out for Disney related items and have been known to buy pens, pins, stationary, Pez, gum............things like that! She also always gets a new pair of Minnie pj's to go too!!!

I am even fond of the odd colouring book myself for the plane trip!!!

Keeps me occupied and I find I don't spend too much asI buy things spread over time.

Just popped in to say... OMG super jealous!!! 16 nights at DLR over Halloween - I can't wait to hear all about this trip!

And I think you should do the Carousel at the beginning of the trip too. It's always nice to finish off with the things you know you're going to enjoy.
