    From the top of my head:

    DH, me and the twin boys going to celebrate their 5th birthdays in November (but no cruises in Nov, which is how the trip evolved).

    Flights
    8 Sept - PPQ/AKL/LAX
    30 Sept LAX/AKL/PPQ

    Beds
    8 Hyatt House
    9 - 16 Grand Pacific Pallisade Resorts, Carlsbad
    16 - 23 Mickeys Hollow, Anaheim
    23 - 30 Disney Wonder Pacific Coastal Cruise

    No ADRs at DL.

    Activities
    Carlsbad planned for Legoland (across from GPPR) for several days, Sea World, Maritime Museum, Midway. Not sure about SD Zoo as we are probably going to Sydney Zoo next month. Tossing up on Julian.

    Anaheim - 4 day flexi pass for DL/DCA. LA County Museum and OC County Parks. Venice Beach and Malibu (just so I can say I was there).

    Booked our own things on cruise apart from adult brunch at Palo. Alcatraz and SF Fire Truck tours in San Fran. Plan on visiting Lefties for son and DH in SF. Doing our own thing in San Diego and Ensenada.

    Think that's it.

    make sure you take heaps of notes, and heaps of pics......get a photopass for dL then you can get some great shots of yourself rather than asking others to take your pic:thumbsup2 we love our photopass, and on my solo wdw segment I got some great shots of me:wave2:

    disneyAussiemum, that is an awesome trip!! I love Disney but I have to say I love the great American National Parks even more!

    You probably already know, but with that many parks on your itinerary you definitely want to get the "America the Beautiful" annual National Parks pass, its about $80 but with you visiting 9 national parks it will save you a packet :)

    I think Bryce Canyon at sunrise was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen and Monument Valley is amazing. I envy your visit to Death Valley, it's the only one on your list that we haven't visited yet, it's on my " one day" agenda !

    Hope you're planning to do a trip report?
