Hot diggity! Today is a pretty special day because as anyone knows who has ever counted down to a big trip when you hit the 200 day mark it is very exciting!..... BUT guess what? I missed the 200th day to start my pre-trip report . BUT today marks only 199 days until our annual family vacation at Disneyland!!! I have no idea why I decided to start a pre-TR . Lord knows I have enough trouble getting the real deal part of a trip report done but anyway, I guess I am thinking it will give me something useful to do to help pass the next 6 months, 4 weeks and 3 days. So climb aboard and help me pass some time and get to planning. So, heres what I do know so far Our trip for 2012 will be officially November 17 December 1. Thats right a full 2 week trip and will include Thanksgiving in the park! I cant wait! We already have our nice official reservations made for the full 2 weeks (no relocating mid trip like in our 2011 trip) at Dolphins Cove. We stayed with them one week last year for our very first time. The family loved it and is so looking forward to staying there again. My husband has told me several times already that he cant wait to get back there. My one and only issue with our new found lodging is the distance to the park. For the previous 10 years we had always stayed at the Anaheim Desert Inn which is practically across the street from the park. I have been so spoiled to popping right over to the park in a matter of minutes. It takes a bit more time to make the trek to the park but I am confident that I will adjust and be completely satisfied with our new lodging in no time at all even if it does require a little extra time getting around. So far the dates and our temporary home away from home are the only 2 things I have got lined out. I am, of course, currently keeping a close watch out for a great deal on airfare but so far the cost is still sky high. I caught a fantastic bargain last year in June and am hoping that I have the same sort of luck again this year. In the meantime, I will twiddle my thumbs, try to stay up to date with all the latest Disneyland info and spend many a day caught up in some serious daydreaming.
