So exciting to start reading your TR! We originally were planning to go to DL this year, but opted for WDW instead (not that it's a bad thing!)...headed out tomorrow in fact!

Can't wait to learn all about DL and hopefully plan my own trip there someday!

Thank you
You can't beat a Disney vacation whether its DL or WDW. I hope your trip is filled with pixie dust

Yay! I'm indeed ready to get the party started.

How did you guys like LAX? When we go to Disneyland, we always try to fly into Santa Ana instead. The last time I was in LAX it was kinda icky, so I don't know if it's different at all.

The walking distance factor is one of the best things in Disneyland.

I always fly SWA and I have always been able to sit with Denny. I never pre pay. Even when I'm in the end of the B group its never an issue. I actually like the way SWA boards. Everyone just finds an empty seat and sits. I think its faster than looking for a seat.


Glad your flight was uneventful. Nice view from the plane.

Yay for arriving! I love how everything is so close at DL.

I haven't eaten at the RFC for years. Glad you guys enjoyed your meals. Everything looks relish.

Your trip is off to a smooth start!

Thank you There are a lot of similarities between DL and WDW and sometimes that would cause us to forget we didn't know our way around DL.

We saw very little of LAX but it seemed fine.

Yes it is. My biggest complaint about WDW is all the time spent on overcrowded buses so I loved the close proximity!

That's good to know. Once we became familiar with their boarding procedure it wasn't an issue and I agree that it seems to go faster.

Glad your flight was uneventful. Nice view from the plane.

Wish we could have said the same thing about the flight home

Yay for arriving! I love how everything is so close at DL.

I do too.

The trip was off to a great start and it just got better from there!

Yayyy! You've started! We have never flown Southwest either just because of the seating - I am a bit of a control freak
So what made you choose Paradise Pier over the other two places? I don't know much about any of the DL resorts.
Rainforest is always a fun spot!
Can't wait to hear more!!!!

I can relate to the control thing. I like to know just what to expect

Good question. What made us go with Paradise Pier is that Caitlin had seen pics from a "theme park view" room and wanted to wake up to that sight every morning.

Thanks

I am SO excited to hear about this trip! Sounds like it off to a great start. I would love to go to DL one day. I agree with you that the buses are the worst part of DW, I am not a patient person.

I can't even wrap my mind around the fact that you just WALKED to DTD! I imagine that going to DLR would be more relaxing not having to rush to try to catch buses or see them just pass by.
