Hi! Still here - enjoying your plans and your excitement! DS just got back from the Cars opening - he didn't get to ride anything, but said it looks amazing, and ST is great!

Well hello there everyone!!!

I am happy to announce that in this update, the itinerary is finished!!! YAY Now that the party dates have been released for the Halloween parties, I was able to put the finishing touches on what is going to be a most magical time! It turns out there are only 2 days that we will be affected, so have planned other things for those days.

Oh, we went to Disney On Ice on the weekend and a fun time was had by all! It is a tradition now and has been since DD was just 3 that my mum, myself and DD all catch the show when it comes to town. This time round it was "Let's Celebrate" and covered all the big holidays like birthdays, Halloween and Christmas etc. I must say, I think this was my favourite one!!! Mickey and Minnie were out on the ice for nearly the whole show unlike when the big full story shows come and they usually only come out to announce the first and second halves. I did have a little teary moment thinking of the upcoming trip.........I really am a big softie!!!

We picked up a couple of things.......



And, I was an extremely lucky lady this week when hubby presented me with an eraly Christmas/Birthday present. I have been wanting to invest in a DSLR camera for quite some time now, but at over $1000.00 it has really been a bit of a dream. So imagine my absolute delight when I came home from work to find a brand new shiny Canon 60D with twin lenses waiting for me. I am feeling so lucky right now............ He also wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to practice so gave it to me early........what a sweetie!!!
Of course I will be taking the camera with me, so the next trip report will be loaded with what I hope will be some amazing pics. I used to work as a photographer a long time ago, so I am hoping it will all come back to me!
The weather has been just lousy here at the moment, but the forecast is for clear skies this weekend so I will be taking the camera out for it's first run! I will post some pics as you never know what I will find to photograph!!!


Ok, so onto the itinerary!!!!

DAY 1 - Depart Sydney 2:40pm Wednesday 24th October
Arrive LAX 10:25am Wednesday 24th October
After we have collected bags and got through customs etc we will ride shuttle to the fabulous Ho Jo. Hoping to arrive some time between 1 -2pm give or take with traffic. I am hoping our room will be ready so will unpack what we need to freshen up and then head straight to DISNEYLAND
We will then proceed to exchange paper for Annual Passes and of course will be heading right for the Troubador Tavern for a DD special...............a big loaded baked potato
Will then just take it all in and go until we run out of puff!!!!

DAY 2 - Thursday 25th October - Sleep in!!! We will have had a big flight with not much sleep so I want to make sure we get our energy back for our big days ahead! So it will be Mimi's for breakfast and back to the park for a whatever we want to do day!!!

DAY 3 - Friday 26th October - Be at DCA for rope drop. We will be spending all day in DCA today as this is a party day at DL. Will be our first visit to Cars Land!!!!

DAY 4 - Saturday 27th October - Rope drop DL. Another all day/night in the parks!

DAY 5 - Sunday 28th October - A bit of a sleep in today. Off to Main Place shopping centre in Santa Ana for a much needed visit to Macy's Dinner at the Cheesecake Factory on return to Anaheim.

DAY 6 - Monday 29th October - Knotts berry farm today with a surprise for DD as we will be doing the Pirates Adventure dinner tonight. I found a trip with Grays buses that run a tour that takes you to Knotts and then to the dinner with a pick up and drop off at your front door!!!

DAY 7 - Tuesday 30th October - The first of our "mother/daughter" days today! So, it's my day at DCA. Definitely doing the World of Color show.Will also do the Ariels Grotto dinner or pick up a picnic, not too sure but we will be amking sure we have those WOC tickets!!!

DAY 8 - Wednesday 31st October - Happy Halloween! The big Halloween party at Disneyland for us tonight. Can't wait to trick or treat with Pocahontas!!!

DAY 9 - Thursday 1st November - DD day at DCA today!!! ( I can see me getting very, very wet today as she loves those rapids!!! )

DAY 10 - Friday 2nd November - Rope drop and DL all day

DAY 11 - Saturday 3rd November - Character breakfast at Story Tellers Cafe and then DCA/DL - Park hopping today...............just taking it as it comes! May duck out for a trip down to the Disney outlet store or have a nap???!!!

DAY 12 - Sunday 4th November - Free day. Downtown Disney, maybe a movie and dinner at the Rainforest Cafe.

DAY 13 - Monday 5th November - Change hotels to Carousel Inn ...........or............maybe another surprise fro DD, you will just have to wait and see!!! My day at DL. Character breakfast first with Minnie and Friends, Haunted Mansion, Haunted Mansion, Haunted Mansion...... Hope DD can keep up

DAY 14 - Tuesday 6th November - Universal Studios

DAY 15 - Wednesday 7th November - DL day for the DD........maybe I should start singing "Yo Ho Yo Ho" now to get in the practice!!!

DAY 16 - Thursday 8th November - Disneyland day with dinner at the Blue Bayou

DAY 17 - Friday 9th November - As much time as we can spend in Disneyland as we fly home at 8:25pm and will arrive home at 6:25am on Sunday 11th November.

So, that's it. I am sure there will be a few changes between now and then, but this is pretty much how we want it to go!!! And of course, there shall be food, oh yeah, lots of new places in DCA to try and back to some old favourites!!!

Oh...........118 sleeps to go

I love reading about other peoples planning It gets me so excited for my own trip!!!

At the moment we'll both be watching the World of Colour on the same day!! Tuesday the 30th of October! We're doing a DL day (to see the Halloween decorations in their full glory!) but will be watching WOC that night not sure how we're going to run this in terms of grabbing fast passes or not

And then we'll both be in DL on Wednesday the 7th of November!

I'm guessing your flying with VA?? We have the same departure time the Thursday prior to you flying out

Hi everyone...............well, I think there are still a couple of you out there???

Now we all know I do love to take photos. Lots and lots of photos!

So, I have been out today with the new camera and I would like some opinions please from my Dis friends!

I am extremely pleased with the results and if this is what I can expect on a regular basis, I will be thrilled to bits. The camera has sooooooo many cool, things and I have only just scratched the surface!!!

Without further ado.........











And my favourite for the day.......




Just imagine what the Disneyland pics are going to look like!!!

I am so excited............let me know what you think

Hi - I'm still here! So excited for you now you have you're itinerary all set up. Halloween will be wonderful at DL! Your photos are beautiful, what a lovely present for you from your hubby.

one question - will you be making pre bookings for your disney meals? I think we are going to do the Minnie breakfast too, but just wonder how you go about booking, is it 60 days in advance?
