Been a while since I was on this side of the boards....but the Disney fever has hit & so the planning begins!!!! We had a wonderful-magical trip last March when we celebrated our 25th anniversary & I was amazed at all the comments I received on my report & pics....so I figured I'd go at it again! I'll try to keep it fun to read...... So here are the characters involved on this years trip: Betty (my mother-in-law), myself (Laurie), Derek (who will turn 21 on our 1st disney day), Tyler (our 23 yr old), Anthony (who will be 9), Nicholas (our 24 yr old that won't be able to go) & Mike (my hubby) Added to the family since that picture was taken (2005 trip) This is Adaleah, she will turn 5 right before our trip! The twins, Shyann above & Michayla below will be 3 at the time of the trip! As you can see, we're a big family!! There will be a total of 9 of us on this trip, ranging from 3 yrs old to grandma. THE PLAN: The plan is to rent a 12 passenger van to haul all of us in & our luggage from Salem Oregon to Anaheim California. We will leave Saturday, July 24th & staying in Stockton overnight then continuing on to Anaheim on Sunday the 25th. Derek's 21st birthday is Monday the 26th & we will be at Disneyland all day for this!! We're planning on Disneyland again on Tues the 27th & Weds the 28th. We tend to just do DL when we go, but we've added extra days so we could explore some other parks, attractions, etc. We're looking at going to Knott's Berry Farm on Thurs the 29th. The San Diego Zoo on Fri the 30th & checking out the beaches. On Sat the 31st, we want to go find "Pinks" (the famous hot dog stand), the El Capitan Theater & Disney Soda Fountain, followed by the Farmer's Market in LA. Sun, August 1st we are going to surprise my brother at the church he is the pastor for in Torrance & then spend some time at Long Beach. On Mon, Aug 2nd we're going to Universal Studios & the CityWalk. These are all new things for our family, so should be fun to explore!! So at this point, you're probably going.....only 3 days at DL???? But don't fret.........we're ending our time in Anaheim the way we started them.....at our favorite place on earth!!!! Tues, Weds & Thurs (3rd, 4th, 5th) will all be at DL!!! As you can see we went with all weekdays at DL....we're hoping this will help with the large summer crowds. We will pack up & leave Anaheim on Friday, Aug 6th driving to Redding to stop for the night & then back to Salem & home on Saturday, August 7th. Wow, that was a lot of info for one post, so will stop for now!! Keep in mind, this is our dream plan but changes can & most likely will make happen before we get to July......so sit down, fasten those seatbelts & get ready for a wild ride!!!
