Hello. This is my first PTR. "Cars didn't drive on it to make great time. They drove on it to have a great time.". - Sally McQueen. I am super excited about planning our roadtrip !. We have been wanting to come back to DLR since our January 2012 trip. Carsland was just being completed. So we have been wanting to come back to see Carsland ever since. But with the dollar value ( Canadian) and the price of tickets etc, we could not justify it. Fast forward to this summer. very good friends of ours moved to Seatle. Then DL announced the Canadian deal on disneyland tickets. So we decided to do a roadtrip. Drive to California and do Disneyland for a few days, then up to northern california for a few days to visit my cousin and family, then up to Seatle for a few days with friends. then head back home. It will be me, DH and DD14 and DD14. My cousins family for part of the trip. DCS- cousin, DCA - cousins wife, and their kids DN12 and DN8 our friends for part of the trip. DFL - friend, DFG - friends husband, and their kids DF12 and DF10. Christmas eve is our big holiday day. lots going on with family. For the past few years Christmas day has been rather low key and quiet, with family members going to their in-laws, or having to work on christmas or they were away on trips . So we decided we would start our trip on Christmas morning!
