June 4th - 9th here....to make up for our last trip which was this past November 25 - 28th, but I managed to come down with a horrible stomach flu/virus and could not leave our hotel room for any of the three days! Needless to say, that left us with a ticket we HAVE to use, so June it is!

Got a GREAT rate ($165/night) for the Disneyland Hotel...stayed at Paradise Pier once, but am really looking forward to DLH!!!!

Taking our first family trip to DL June 1-7. Staying at Carousel Inn. WDW was about too much for my dh in 2006 with all the bus rides do hoping this will feel more relaxing for him. The countdown is on....

In case some of you come into this thread and bypass the first posts, just wanted to let you know I did a major overhaul to the intro.

I'll keep adding to it with additional resources and of course as more people join our group.

I was hoping to see a June planning thread....we will be there from 6/6-6/14 staying at VGC. This is our first ever trip to DLR and first ever to the West Coast (we are WDW Vets). My family is beyond excited about going to DLR; the kids are very excited about seeing Carsland and riding California Screamin, while DH and I are really excited about being in the park that Walt Built (of course we are excited to see everything else too). DH and I are all about the nostalgic of Disney and can't wait to see DL and ride the original rides that he had a first hand in creating .

Hi there.
We'll be there May 18- June 2 staying at the Hojo in a kids suite for 6 nights, then in a vacation rental for the remaining 9 nights.
Flying all the way from Australia for our second trip to Disneyland. I so wish I lived closer and could always say 'If we miss it this time, we can do it next time'. Thats why we're staying so long. Hopefully we won't miss anything!
We will have a 10 day Disney pass, hope to do Universal, Knotts Berry, beach day, Hollywood/LA etc, and whatever else we can fit in.
Last year (well August 2011) we did Disneyland, San Diego (Legoland), Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. My view for anyone who might be interested is that Grand Canyon is not worth making a special trip to, especially with kids. It's a long drive and wonderful to see, but pretty boring after an hour or so. My 8 year old still says how bored he was!!
Legoland might be an ok day trip, but after Disneyland is a real letdown. Our mistake was planning our whole visit to San Diego around Legoland. Maybe if we had just a day trip there it would have been better. Although when you ask the boys (8 and 10 at the time) what they thought of Legoland, they'll still say it was 'Awesome'!
Great to have others to be excited with. Our trips really aren't that far away

I'm excited to see that too. I keep thinking there will be a whole different "feel" to the park because Walt was so involved.

Holy Moly - That's a big trip. How fun!!! I just said to my DH tonight that someday I want to go to Australia. I imagine that will be a big trip for us too! lol

The Grand Californian! How lovely!! We'll be in the park at the exact same time.

Count me in! We will be at Disneyland on 5/28 & 5/29.

We live in Arizona. Will be driving out to San Diego on 5/24 to spend Memorial Day weekend with some relatives, then on Memorial Day, will drive up to Anaheim to check into our hotel, followed by 2 days at the parks! It is our kids' first trip. Wanted to go last year, but some health issues of mine prevented that.
