Umm, I have to admit to having a little collection of Trader Sam's glasses

You are going to have a blast in there!

Cars Land is really wonderful and I defy you not to grin from ear to ear all the time you are on RSR

Oh and Flo's V8 Cafe is yummy!! - grab a table by the windows that overlook the cars racing around

I never thought I would get the Disneyland bug as much as I did - I totally fell in love with the place, I hope you do to!

I have recieved our confirmation of dining reservations!!!

I just have to wait til the 19th March to book Fantasmic Dessert Party - like you say Linda - it's overpriced but then again worth it for the reduction of hassle getting a spot!!

Great news
I'm sure that they will tell you this when you book your Fantasmic Dessert Party but you have to go to guest services and collect your tickets before you go and check in (I picked mine up in the morning)
They check people in for the first show and the second show at the same time, check in was around 8pm when I did it
My tickets were for the second show but once I was checked in and had my seat assigned I headed off to enjoy the park and then came back just a short while before the show started to start eating!
There are only three rows of seats. The view is great in all seats, but if you can't get the front row, opt for the back as that's the only row you can stand up in (just in case there is someone in front of you wearing a top hat )

Just an update on to our plans - months of planning and 19 days to go until we leave and some big changes

BUT! The changes are being made for a potentially amazing reason!!! *Insert Imaginary Kermit Yay / Flailing Emotion Here*

We are now checking in to the Fairfield at Disneyland on the Sunday 14th April, one day before we were going to originally.

The reason being we managed to score some standby tickets for the taping of Big Bang Theory. The website goes crazy when these tickets go on sale! So glad we managed to get them, although it is not a guaranteed ticket we plan to be there early so we should have a good chance to get in - fingers crossed! This is our favourite tv show and to see it live would just be amazing!

Now we just have to think of fun things to do in the queue all day!

Also - this might mean we have a chance to get on the Matterhorn. The website says that it will be down Tuesday - Friday that week for testing , but as of just now it will still be open on the Monday - so we get to ride that!!

Can't believe only 19 days to go - still have to buy all our toiletries and quite a lot of holiday clothes - eeek!

Fingers Crossed!!! It would be good not to miss out on it, especially as Big Thunder is under refurb.

It's all feeling sooo close now - realised today I have so much still to do at work and only two full weeks left til I'm off! It will definately make the time pass quicker though

Sounds a lovely trip.

We did Vegas last year for a week and loved it. Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan is a must, also go up the Stratrosphere for some great views.

The Warner Brothers Tour is right next door to our US office so I managed to slope off and visit when I was over there for work a couple of years ago - you'll love it

Not sure if you are a fan of Friends but if so you are in for a real treat
