Just makes it seem more real. Desert Inn & Suites just emailed me a "welcome." Our plane leaves Seattle at 8:15 AM Sat. morning. Should be in Long Beach around 10:45. Prepaid for Super Shuttle van to take the 9 of us to the hotel then it's off to DCA to get our hands stamped. The younger ones of our group will stay & collect some FP from both parks while we older ones hoof it down to Anaheim Plaza to get the 12 passenger van we rented for the week and head for the grocery store. Then we'll join the kids and our vacation will officially begin.
