This is my new pre trip report. Or, as Apple's spellcheck wants to call it, my "pretty pie". I am a "victim" of happy circumstance. Ms Sherry happened to have a great rate, she happened to have spare room in her PPH room, and we happened to have spare frequent flier miles! It is all coming together as my first trip back to Disneyland since late 2009! That trip was at the end of two heavy-Disneyland years, so the Anaheim drought was hard on me. The drought was done for strategic WDW purposes, but it turns out I still yearn pretty badly for the 'land, even while I'm in the 'world! My son and I were supposed to have a day at DLR last March, but he got extremely ill in the middle of the night after we had already bought e-tickets, and the day was most definitely not spent anywhere but a hotel room, being miserable. So this trip has been, relatively, a long time coming. I've done solo trips before, and they really help. I'm far more Disney crazy than my family is (though they are getting there!), and getting the running around out of my system helps with the family trips. And OH yes I hope we can get a family trip in soon! Our WDW APs are almost up, our DVC well is dry until 2013 ( and we wouldn't use those in Anaheim anyway as I am not the hugest fan of the Grand Cal), so hope springs eternal. I'm not at all sure what my strategy will be for this short trip that goes from early on December 6th to the evening of December 8th, but I'm sure I'll think of something! Even more fun, there's another roomie during the stay, so Laurie come say hi here! I should mention that this pre-trip and trip report for December has turned into a pre-trip report for a Disneyland and Universal Orlando trip in February! I know, I know, odd combo, but of all the dreaming and thinking and pricing things out that we did, it ended up making the most sense! Trip report from February 2012 starts around here!
