If it wasn't for bad luck we would have no luck!
Oh no! Can they do that? I've never seen them take one plane for another route. Are you going to try to do the other plane then? What time will you get in to Disneyland?

They took our plane that was for phoenix and sent it to St. Louis. IDK if they can, but they did. It now adds another connection and we get in about 5 hours later ...

Do they give you some kind of comp for the troubles?

How was the night before? Did you get to the movies or Marceline?

We have arrived. We are up and getting ready to go.

The airline gave us $100 per person for the inconvenience, trust me traveling with a 4 and 5 year old, we would have rather not spent 11hours at the airport and on planes yesterday. Overall they did pretty good all things considered.

Glad to hear you made it. Hope you all have a great time!

Just wondering though. On the $100 per person was it a refund per person or credit for future flights? Just wondering in case it ever happened to us.

Hope you are there now and enjoying your trip.

We made it home!

Tonight will be the first night in our own bed in about 9 days...

I will start the TR tomorrow, but will leave a few pics tonight, I have a lot of pics, and haven't had time to make any adjustments to them...

Yes, I am doing fine. Life just took a detour the last couple of weeks. I was driving and was rear ended by a semi. The damage was pretty minimal, but I was working at the time and in a Fleet Vehicle. So, drug test, reports, phone calls, more reports, car to the shop, more reports, well you get the idea.

Anyway, on to the TR.

Day 1 - Saturday November 3, 2012

We arrived later in the evening than we were expecting. We had our plan taken from us by Southwest. So, after a 3 hour delay, a stop in Phoenix, then a stop in Las Vegas, we arrived in Orange County.

No, issues with the rental car. No issues with traffic, but we were tired. We headed straight to the Fairfield Inn on South Harbour. The location was pretty awesome.

I have some family in the Riverside area, so they were planning on meeting us for dinner on Saturday Night. With the flight delay, we were tempted to call them and postpone our dinner for another night. But, we barely had made it into the room and the phone rang, they were in the parking lot ready to see us.

So, we invited them up, visited for an hour or so then headed off to dinner. We went out to Benihana's. It isn't anything that we have around here, so it was really a fun and unique experience that was new to us. We had the Steak and Chicken dinner. The steak was very good, but the chicken was just average. The show was not as good as I was expecting. The table next to us, seemed to have a better Chef, so I watched there show a bit.

After dinner, we went our separate ways and agreed to meet them another night. It was close to 11pm local time, so it was close to 1am by our bodies. And with a 5 and 4 year old, that was a long time with no nap!

I promise that I will get this trip report and pictures going at a better speed coming up. I will do the Sunday update tonight. I promise!!!

We did not make it to Marceline, in fact, we left a little later then we hoped, so we found a BBQ place in KC close to the airport. I don't recall the name, but it was not a franchise. We just enjoyed our meal and did not make it to the movie before our trip.

That being said, we did make it to see Wreck-It Ralph. We enjoyed the movie. I was hoping for a little bit more. We are gamers and movie lovers and a movie that crossed those genres was right up our alley. The kids loved the movie, especially Vanillape. There were a lot of parts that I chuckled and we had a fun couple of hours, but I wouldn't consider the movie fantastic.

We received a voucher for $100 off a future flight that has to be used within one year. It hardly was worth it for the major inconvenience with 2 small children, but the did pretty good all things considered. DW made out like a bandit on the deal. She received a complimentary adult beverage on each leg of the flight.
