    Just remember that if you are doing a u-turn (to the left) to NOT throw your head over your left shoulder. Doing so results in smashing your forehead on the window :rotfl: A tip my husband wished he'd been told of before doing a u-turn!

    Dean I agree driving there scared me as well almost as much as the thought of going ToT.

    After 10 minutes I got used to it. If you have a GPS don't be too fussed with taking a wrong turn or exit, it will get you back on track. It may take a few turns but you get there.

    Biggest challenges I found was remembering I could turn right at any time when safe even against a red light and don't expect freeway exits all to be on the some side of the motorway like they are in Australia. Some are on the right, left and even in the middle.

    Myself and my friend Alicia will be at Disneyland from the 1st of November - 15th of November following on from our short Halloween adventure arriving in the states on the 28th of October. We are really looking foward to this trip and hope to catch as much of the two holiday overlays as possible. For us, getting photo's of the characters in their Holiday attire and catching the Christmas parade and fireworks will be icing on our magical Disneyland adventure cake!

    The hardest bit is getting out of the hire car parking lot. You'll be fine.

    Hi guys! Having just got back from a 2 week east coast trip to New York, Philadelphia and WDW (with a day and a half at DL on the way home), I've decided to start planning again for a California trip end of November/early December. No dates as yet but I'm thinking a week in SFC and a week at DL. This last trip was my second WDW visit and as much as I love it, I've realised I love Disneyland that little bit more.
    Looking forward to watching everyone else's plans progress.

    Not 100% sure yet. Maybe a little stop at DL and maybe Whistler :confused::confused::confused:

    It will be a whole extended family thing if it happens. I'm hoping for some serious pixiedust:pixiedust:pixiedust: that the trip comes off.

    I'm sending you some pixiedust: to WAMUMOF4 that yours comes off too pixiedust:

    I'm still squirrelling away money for our trip. ALthough I did win $30-odd in Tuesday's OzLotto the $30M I was hoping to win last night just didn't happen :worried:

    I'm still deliberating over the southern road trip or drive to Chicago and fly to Montana. After looking at what we want to do in Orlando after the cruise and the time we have left before getting to Montana for Christmas I'm worrying we won't have enough time. So we're wondering if we just have Christmas on the road and be in Montana for New Year's or severely cut the road trip part. Still waiting for flights to open up to see the prices yet though.

    But I also hope to find more work this year to pay for it all :thumbsup2
