Yep, we will be in DL then but it's a matter of if we are on a ride or not. Knowing our luck we'll be on an 'inside ride' and miss the whole thing. DH will be gutted too if he misses it. It's supposed to go over at 9.30AM.

The kids have hit a homesick wall halfway into the holiday. We had a rest day yesterday and it gave them time to miss things I guess. Today it's Magic Morning (although having been up since 0330 I'm not feeling magical myself - it's a little after 5AM here now) and then home for lunch, rest, swim before going back to DL. Friday we'll do the same program and then Sat we're visiting friends we are cruising with and returning the rental. It's been so hot here, all my SoCal friends are over this ultra hot autumn, the kids have been doing really well with it but I think they just miss the cooler weather and running around their own house making as much noise as they like.

Four days at Disneyland completed. We saw and rode everything bar two rides we wanted to do, a lot multiple times. Kids are happy and shattered.

We saw the Space Shuttle from the Boardwalk area of DCA, along with a lot of other people clapping and cheering it. It was around 12.30 and one kid was too hot and very upset, but we saw it.

Tomorrow we board the Disney Wonder for seven nights. Can't wait for our cruise meet and FE to kick off. We spent the day with a fellow Disboarder who lives in SoCal, so cool to meet her after chatting for half a year.
