CONFIRMED!!!

We are going to be there on Monday the 18th, and leave on Friday the 22nd.
Staying at Ramada Maingate (got a super deal - air & hotel for 3 for under $1000!).

Our goal is to do 2 half-days at Disneyland, a half-day at Knotts Berry Farm, and a full day at Universal Studios.

Soooooo excited! And soooooo tempted to keep this a secret from DS. He has intermission (no school) for the week, and knows how much we want to go to DL but don't know if we can make it.

I highly recommend the "Unofficial Guide to Disneyland".
I haven't been to DLR since 2004 or so, and am planning to get the new version. Waiting for it to come out on ibooks later this month (sadly, no kindle version yet).

My Unofficial Guide arrived today (ordered it on Tuesday - quick shipping from Amazon) and I told DH I was gonna highlight the heck out of it!

We watched the Disney Vacation planning video and DH was shocked at all of the new things. We may just skip Knotts and do a full 2 1/2 days at Disney, and the day at Universal.

We are also hoping to keep this a surprise for DS. We plan on telling him that we are going to see FIL in Idaho when our DL trip gets closer. He will be not be happy. And all of the looking at Disneyland stuff will be because we are hoping to do a summer trip.

My husband and I are going February 10th-15th staying at the Paradise Pier on DVC points. My inlaws were very generous and had us use points to help them out. We've never stayed on property before. This will be our second trip to Disneyland in February. Last time they had Mardi Gras activities and it was relaxing and the line wait times were not bad at all. We already have our flights booked and are looking forward to it.

Where did you find the closures/refurb for Feb? I've been looking and haven't seen anything for 2013 yet.

We're there for a Jan/Feb visit. Our flight lands SNA 1-28-12 and we depart 2-2-12.
I will be accompanied by one daughter-in-law and four grandkids. It's another Birthday trip for me, I celebrate my 60th during the trip.
We hope to either stay at BWPPI or the Desert Inn and Suites. I'm leaning towards the Desert Inn and suites because of the C-2 suite that accommodates 10.

See you there!

I'm going February 5-7, I think it's right around the time Fat Tuesday rolls around. What kind of Mardis Gras stuff do they do? New Orleans Square was always my favorite land and I'm so curious to see what they do for Mardis Gras.

Mardi Gras

Well the last time we went they had pictures with Mickey and Minnie dressed in their Mardi Gras best. As well as a band and a little parade thru New Orleans square with Mickey and Minnie. They also had a little show with Princess Tiana. Goofy and Pluto were also out in their Mardi Gras wear but not in a set location just wandering. It was a lot of fun.

I want to order the new Unofficial Guide, but I have a question first. Does the new version contain the new info. about Carsland? Counting the days until February!

The wife and I have decided, all that's left to do now is book... we will be going the last week of February! Meeting with our AAA travel agent this week sometime to get some details down. So far we are thinking we will be leaving 2/21, 2/22, or 2/23, and returning 2/28, 3/1, or 3/2 depending on when we leave and such. I'm quite excited.

Are the pools heated at all, or are they outright closed at that time of year? We are planning to stay at PPH.

Surprising DS! Chances are he won't even realize where we are until we land in Anaheim. He is always plugged in to his ipod!! He thinks we are going to Idaho to visit FIL.

I am looking forward to forgetting where I am! Disneyland is like it's own little planet, where worries are left at the gate.

I am looking forward to spending 5 days alone with my husband and son, being a family, having a fun family trip!

Looking forward to seeing the new rides and areas of the parks : Little Mermaid ride, Cars Land, **Starbucks**!

And since we are skipping Knotts, we will have a full 2 1/2 days of Disney!

I have my 2013 Unofficial Guide, which is already bookmarked and highlighted a bunch! This may be our last trip for a while, and I want to make sure we see a lot of things we didn't see on our last 3 trips.

Oh - and I am looking forward to seeing Universal Studios again! And going on the Transformers ride, and the Simpsons ride at least twice!! And the Universal CityWalk shops!
