Cool PTR Gus Gus, Doug, King Fergus, Archimedes, and Kuzco go to visit Mickey!

Hey there! Im Genee and I am a Disney Pro! Meaning I love all things Disney, like a lot, a ridiculous amount for a 24 year old in fact. I love being in Disney and the feeling in your heart when you and everyone around you is having fun and making memories. I have started a few TR on here but I have been bad about finishing them because I never kept up with notes, and we used to not take enough pictures to just go off of that. However now I know what I am doing and how to do it. I am also currently working on my TR for our trip to Disney World that we took in January. So if you would like to read about that you can go here. http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2902944
So let me introduce my partners in Disney craziness for this trip.
First there’s me:





as I already said my name is Genee and I am 24. I LOVE DISNEY! I listen to Disney music more than anything and I have a Disney movie on in the background pretty much all the time, partly because I am one of those crazy people who never gets tired of watching them and partly because I am a nanny. I watch two kids 4 days a week and I love them so much. They are funny quirky adorable little kids and they make me laugh and smile every day. I love my job!
My favorite character is Gus Gus from Cinderella.



Just look at him he’s is so fat and cute and everything he says makes me crack up.

My favorite park of all Disney parks is Disneyland of course! I love them all but I just really feel like Walt Disney’s heart went into Disneyland; there is just something about it being the original park and the one I grew up going to. It is most definitely the happiest place on earth to me. So that about sums me up.


Next is my Husband Martin:



We have been together since I was 15 and he was 16, and we have been married for 6 ½ years now. I love him so much! He is funny, and fun and smart and he works hard so we can go to Disney as much as we want. He is a general manager at an industrial and construction supply store. He sells power tools, nuts, and bolts… that kinda stuff. He loves Disney, he especially likes to keep up with all the changes in the parks and the behind the scenes secrets.

His favorite character is Doug from up, and his favorite park is also Disneyland. He likes that all the big rides are in one park, where as in Disneyworld there is more to look at but less rides per park.

Then there is my older brother Lonnie





Notice the ride hasn’t even started yet….. Heres a normal picture of him




He is 27 and other than my husband, he is my favorite person! He is so goofy, and we just have so much fun together in Disney. We have made many memories growing up in Disney so I love going back with him and feeling like kids again.





Arnt we so cute!



He went with us in August a couple years ago and it is my favorite trip we have taken so far. Here are a couple pictures from that trip. I have lost 60 pounds since then so ignore the fact that I look a little different than I do in the picture I posted as my introduction.













We had a blast!

Also joining us on this trip are our friends Nick and Crystal:







They are twins; they are 19 and two of the nicest people I have ever met! They also love Disney and this will be their first trip with just friends, no parents. So they are super excited and I think we will all have so much fun together!!!!!

Nick is going to school at a Christian College here in northern California to be a Worship Pastor, and Crystal is finishing up her general ed at the community college and then will be transferring in a year or so to a school in southern California for art. She is a amazing artist! Martin and I have this piece proudly displayed in our house.



She hopes to work for Disney when she is finished with school.

Since she is such an amazing artist she was so kind to make us all shirts for our trip. I will post pictures as soon as they are done, but they are amazing! They are each different colors and will have our favorite characters on them and then say Disneyland across the top. I chose Gus Gus from Cinderella, Martin chose Doug from up, Lonnie chose King Fergus from Brave, Nick chose Kuzco from Emperor’s New Groove, and Crystal chose Archimedes the owl from the Sword and the Stone. “Who Who what what?” So that explains the title of my PTR.

Next update where are we staying and when are we going?
Hope you come along with me for the PTR and eventually the TR. I love comments, so I know you are out there reading!

I am glad you are enjoying the trip report so far! We are definitely a quirky little bunch so hopefully that makes for a entertaining TR! 3 weeks and 4 days, I have countdaowns every where I have a app on my phone doing the countdown, my ticker on here, and of course the one running through my head!!

I could not be more exciting I think this will be the best trip we have ever taken!

When we goin? Where we Stayin?

Hello again guys thanks for reading along, I am usually not a big fan of PTR but I had to put all my excitement somewhere!!!

So in preparation for our upcoming trip we have been getting together with Nick and crystal at least once a week to do something Disney. Usually dinner, a Disney movie or a round or two of Disney-scene-it or Disney Apple to Apples. Of course on opeing night we went to see Brave.



Yes I know we really need a tan, and I caught the people behind us at what might be their worst moment ever We had fun, and we LOVED the movie! Her hair is amazing! Of course I am partial to red hair.

Anyway back to the PTR so our official dates are August 22-26th
Originally we were going to go mid September but Martin realized Space Mountain and Haunted Mansion would be closed for holiday refurbishments, and we really didn't want two main rides to be closed while we are there so we switched to August 22-26th.

I feel like our vacation will really start the night before though. Everyone is staying at our house Tuesday night so that we are all together and ready to leave at 4am Wednesday morning. Yep you read that correct folks 4 AM. It is a 8-9 hour drive from our house to Anaheim, without traffic, so it gets pretty miserable if we do hit traffic. A couple trips ago when it was just Martin and I and we had annual passports, we wanted to leave super early so we got to Disneyland in time to spend half the day at the parks. Well what we discovered was if we leave at 4 am we hit like 0 traffic and it makes the drive so much shorter and more pleasant! So that has become our tradition getting up at 4 am and getting to Anaheim between noon and 1pm.

So the plan for Tuesday night is for us all to have dinner together and hang out playing Disney games and watching Disney movies. I always paint my nails with some sort of Disney designs the night before I go to Disneyland so I am going to do that on mine and Crystals nails. I am sure we will try to sleep at some point, but it is always so hard to sleep the night before DISNEY!!!!
After that night of fun, we will all squish in the carand drive to Huntington Beach.
Our plan is to spend the day at the beach and have dinner on the beach at Sandys restaurant in Huntington Beach and then check into our hotel get cleaned up and walk around DTD and enjoy the live music and shops, and probably get dessert somewhere.
We will be staying at the Anaheim Plaza hotel. We have stayed here a few times, its nothing super special, but it is withing walking distance and usually pretty cheap. So we always end up going back. The rooms are pretty big too if you get a first floor room, so hopefully we do because we will be squishing 5 people into 1 room.
Then we will go to the parks Thursday, Friday and Saturday, then make the sad sad trek home on Sunday.
Well that's all I got for now, I will post more pictures as we do more stuff in preparation for our trip.
