We had such a good time mid-week in July in 2008 that we are going in July again. I didn't find the crowds to be too bad and the weather wasn't even close to the heat we get here, so that isn't an issue for us. We are arriving at Hojo on a Saturday in July and will hang out by the pool; pirates cove; go to DTD and then Goofy's kitchen for lunch or dinner. We'll start our first DL Day on Sunday. Spend five days total at DL/DCA then one day at Universal Studios. We'll hang out at the beach on Saturday and the day of our evening trip back we'll go to American Girl Place. 8 days total in California! I'm so excited to get the dates settled so I can start reserving transportation and hotels. Now I'm just crossing my fingers for ENT rate at the Hojo and for a great find for park tickets in the next year. I'm so excited!
