Disneyland IS a work of love! Hey there, hi there, ho there .you really are as as can be. I have been tossing the idea of a pre-trippie that will cocoon into a full trip report and finally decided to take the plunge. We have been going to Disneyland since the kids were wee infants (longer for DH and me). Last October we took a VERY spur of the moment trip to Disneyland/DCA. DH suggested we add Disneyland on to the tail end of a trip we took to AZ to visit friends. Who in their right Disney lovin mind would say no to that? Not I! We own DVC at SSR in WDW and DH literally mentioned this like 3 weeks before heading to AZ so of course there wasnt availability at the GCV so we stayed at the Anaheim Hilton Garden Inn. Never again. Having said that we bought 3 days park hoppers and upgraded one magical evening post fireworks. It was one of those magical moments when all is right with the world: warm fall breeze, amazing fireworks, and bam- DH agrees to APs. Here are some pics from that trip: DH and me on ART: Kids on ART: All dressed for Fall: The girls. Notice Chloes Yeti from EE at WDW: The five of us. My son had looong hair: Best layover ever! DH and me on my very favorite attraction, IASW: Fireworks: Never too old for Dumbo: My hearts: Ears!!!! I could go on and on with the photos. Really. The cast includes myself, DH, DD (13), DD (11), DS (8), and DD (13)'s BFF, along with 2 sets of friends and their children- so at times there will be 15 of us. We are caravanning with one set of friends and the other are our AZ friends who will meet us there. The plan for our family: GCV 2 bedroom from June 13-June 18, 2010. Next up: the tentative itineray and how in the heck can I plan without posted hours???
