I realize that seems a little bit long, so DH and DD3 are flying to Los Angeles on Thursday. So it is just my Big 4 and me for some quality time to relax and recover from all the packing insanity! Tuesday, August 12, 2008 Still on the train! Wednesday, August 13, 2008 Arrive Los Angeles train station about 8:30am. We are up in the air about our transfers to Disneyland hotel, I am not sure if we will take the Amtrak to the Anaheim station, call Super Shuttle or just grab a taxi. We will have to see. Thursday, August 14, 2008 Disneyland and DH and DD3 fly in late this evening. It will be great to have the family whole again! Friday, August 15, 2008 and Saturday, August 16th Disneyland and California Adventure fun, some friends from the LA area will be joining us as well. Sunday, August 17th, 2008 We are going to attempt Early Entry at Disneyland to get in some last minute rides. Then our Shuttle from the hotel to the Port is scheduled to pick us up at 10:30am. THE FUN WILL REALLY BEGIN NOW!
