Thanks Jenny, it's so sad that Disney have outpriced us nowadays, my friend is getting off the Disney Fantasy today and I've had twinges of jealousy while looking at her photos all weekMy goodness!! You weren't kidding that you were on a roll! There's just so much to take in here that I'll have to go back and read it a couple of times at least. What an amazing holiday and how lovely to spend it with your girls and enjoy it as a family as well as having time to yourselves. I'm completely jealous and now want to go to Hawaii and to Disneyland. I went to Disneyland back in the 80's but it's changed so much since then. We love DCL but the cost combined with the limited itineraries are something that you just can't overlook - I'm glad that Paul has now tested the waters and decided he can live without DCL. Just so fabulous and you did so much! Scott wants to read it too, he was just waiting for it to be finished.
Thanks hunWell it's been an enjoyable read catching up after work tonight. I really like the sunset pictures at Santa Monica and the pictures of Cars land. We went to Disneyland before the 2nd park was built and TBH I can't really remember that much, so it was lovely to see all your pictures and read your reports. I couldn't remember the castle being that small either, must be old age setting in!
Thanks for sharing your trip Mandy
Thanks RachWow what a fantastic adventure Mandy, thanks for Sharing its Given Pete and I some ideas for the future
Thanks Claire, and congrats again on the birth of TheoCheers for sharing Mandy your report kept me entertained while I rested.
You're going to love Hawaii Robin, it's beautiful The crowds at Disneyland weren't too bad at all, nothing like WDW and the Fastpass times weren't usually to long to wait for, except for Radiator Springs Racers which was always busy Happy planningThanks for the trip report Mandy, I'm very happy that I found it.
We are sailing next fall to Hawaii by way of Vancouver on a Royal Caribbean Ship. Disney will always be our favourite but we don't sail with them very much anymore. We do more Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruises now.
We were booked on the Disney Westbound Panama Canal cruise for April/May of next year but we have our second grandchild due at exactly that time, so we have cancelled it and decided to go with the Hawaii cruise in the fall instead.
A question about Disneyland. How did you find the crowds at that time of the year? I've been thinking about maybe adding a few extra days to our trip to visit Disney while we are out that way.
Hey Kev, I hope you had a great holiday and will be doing a trip report or blog again You'll love HawaiiThanks Mandy, that was really interesting. We recently got back from holiday ourselves, so just read your report.
Nice to know you enjoyed Hawaii so much, it's one place I would like to go.
Thanks TheresaWhat a wonderful holiday, Mandy. I've really enjoyed reading your report -fab, as usual. All of the places you visited are on our list so hopefully we'll get to do them all one day. In the meantime it's lovely reading about other people's adventures.
