Me! Me! Me! My family plus my mom, my sister, and brother in law will arrive on 6/8 and leave 6/16. We will have two rooms at Sheraton Park with SoCal City Pass. We plan on sightseeing in Hollywood one day, spending one day at Universal Studios, 5 days at Disney, and we will work in one pool/rest day. I have the package booked through Disney, and I am officially on plane ticket and rental car watch.

We are really starting to get excited. We have been to WDW multiple times, but we have been lured to sunny California by Carsland!

I'm right there with you - Cars is the only reason we're doing DLR over a cruise! My DS will be in heaven!

Are you doing any character meals? We're thinking of the Surf's Up Breakfast as Mickey is the fave around here.

As far as other restaurants, I haven't put much thought into it yet. Blue Bayou maybe just because it sounds like a cool experience. I think the majority of our meals will be just be quick and casual anyway.

We are going to go more casual on dining this trip as well. I paid for one character meal and one premium character meal when I booked. We have all agreed to do dinner at Goofy's one night and do Surf's Up w/Mickey breakfast on our pool day. We were spoiled to free dining at WDW so this will be different, but I hear counter service at DL is really good so I think we will enjoy it. I know we will eat at Earl of Sandwich at least once since we always enjoy that so much. I also plan to do Golden Horseshoe one evening for dinner in hopes of catching Billy Hill & the Hillbillies. We are really used to planning farrrr in advance so we can't help but start the process of thinking about meals and touring plans.

count us in!

1st family trip to CA, June 8-18, planning 4 days at parks, 2 for Hollywood/LA, 1 beach day and ?? can't decide on rest of trip or which days for the parks. Grad nights during our trip too, so not sure if to go to parks those days or not? Feel like we are planning backwards, as we found plane tix we could live with, but figuring out the itinerary is surprisingly hard.:

I know - the lower level of planning with DLR is both nice and frustrating. I feel like I should be doing more!!

I can't wait to hear what you think of the Carousel. We were thinking about that one, but decided on HOJO for their water park.

With that much time you could head down to San Diego and go to Sea World. We went there a few years ago and it was one of the funnest trips we've ever had. We went in mid-July and there was hardly anyone there. My DD just LOVED the Shamu show. I cannot even explain just how wet we got from that show. I think I'm still soaked!

We thought about HoJo, but my travel agent said this was cheaper and closer, so we went with Carousel because a water park doesn't matter to a baby!

We'll be there!! June 23-29th. My DH's birthday is the 28th, and my DD's 6th birthday is July 10th, but we're celebrating it as well. This will be my third trip to DL, but my family's first time, and we are so excited!! My 13 yr. old DD can't wait to ride the Matterhorn and Indiana Jones, and of course we're all geared up for Carsland!
I just read that the Future Business Leaders of America will be having their convention during this time (26-30) with 8000 kids in attendance. I hope it doesn't affect us too much!

Me too!

My family of 4 will be at Disneyland June 22-26. My DH has a conference in San Diego after that, so we're making a family vacation out of it. We've never been to Southern California, but definitely couldn't go without seeing where the magic began!

We'll be staying at the Disneyland Hotel. We actually have enough Disney Visa Reward points to pay for our 4 nights' hotel and 4 day park hoppers!

I look forward to experiencing the attractions unique to DLR, as well as the differences in those that are at both DLR and WDW.

Thanks ColoradoLime! We have been looking around for "daytrips" because so much is within driving distance. San Diego does seem a good choice. We are also considering San Francisco, Yosemite, or even the grand canyon (it's only 5 hrs away from LA!), but, I don't want us to spend all our time in the car!

I have a question. We are thinking of flying home on the 17th since the 16th is Father's Day, and airfare is sky high coming home. Is the water warm enough to get in at the beaches? I thought we could throw in a beach day. I would love to spend a third day in CA, but couldn't stand to buy a whole new ticket for one day. We could also just about make a day out of downtown disney.

Whether the beach is warm enough or the water really depends on you and where you are from. It is next to NEVER warm enough for me to get in the water- even in July...however some might find it pleasant... just know it isn't like Florida or Hawaii...

We will be there June 21-July 5. We will start in San Diego for three nights, then the rest in Anaheim. Can hardly wait. This is our daughter's grad trip. We are hoping to do some side trips that we have never done before such as Rodeo Drive maybe, etc.
