Day 3 - nightime - In the parks til they closed So its been about a year since I stumbled upon the greatness that is the DISboards and I'm proud to say that I am a pro at clicking the minimize button as my boss walks in at work and many late nights where DH wonders if I'll ever get off my laptop. And this brings me to my second pre-trip report for DISNEYLAND! I couldn't be more excited for this trip since it will be the beginning of a great year filled with many random weekend trips that will sometimes be surprises to DH or his surprises to me. I can see it now..coming home from work on Friday and DH sitting there on the couch and as I walk in, "Hey, wanna go to Disney?" OOhhh, the joys I can already come to expect from these trips... Anyway, here are the details: CAST: Me - 23 - Graphic Designer - Lover of Disney and Pirates Favorite Ride - Splash Mountain Most hated ride - Winnie the Pooh (went on with my parents when I was a teen and we all made fun of it the whole time, sure I'll love it when I have kids) DH - 25 - Insurance Broker FT, Spring Training Coordinator for the Milwaukee Brewers PT - Loves me and therefore loves Disney Favorite Ride - Toy Story Mania Most hated ride - Tower of Terror (or anything that drops) Dates: May 7-10 Hotel: Marriott Suites, Garden Grove Transportation: Driving, and also driving to park each day Coming up next: More about us, our wedding and honeymoon last May and our APs!
