It is now about two weeks before I head off to Disneyland, so I figured I would finally start a PTR, that will morph into my TR. And this is my first, so please be kind! (Catchy title will be updated after I return. Who knows what will happen while there? ) My mini trip is planned from Dec. 2-4, and we will be staying in a king suite at La Quinta. This hotel is not super close to the parks, and that's okay. We know the area well enough not to get lost, and the price for 2 nights there is less than half of that of a single night at a resort hotel. Let's start some introductions, shall we? DSD, DM, Me, taken 2 years ago in line to Indiana Jones (none from last year, as my camera had issues) My mother, Pam (DM) and stepdad, Norm (DSD) will be with me this time around, as they always are. None of us have been to Disneyland since last year on my birthday, so it will be exactly a year. DM: An accountant. She is probably the reason why I have been so obsessed with Disney my entire life. We've lived in CA since I was born, my first visit being when I was 9 months old, and we've gone 1-2 times per year since. She's not too Disney obsessed, but does enjoy it. DSD: Works for US Postal Service. He is a recent convert to Disney, since joining the family about 5 years ago. I don't think he fully "gets it", but goes to see everyone happy anyway. Me: A pharmacy technician. All of my free time is spent heading to local areas to find places and things to photograph. You'll see in later updates that most of my planning for this trip has revolved around my camera. This trip has been planned for a long time. Pretty much since March. But as I update, you'll quickly see that despite it being planned early, nothing gets done until the last moment. The perfect example is me switching hotels last minute just yesterday. Let's hope everything manages to fall into place in the next 2 weeks!
