We decided to stay at a motel outside of Anaheim (yes Motel = cheaper) so that we will be closer to the park Saturday morning and maximize our time, since its such a quick trip and Im sure over the top crowded! Im so excited to see Carsland! Ive seen tons and tons of pictures and You tube videos already and we watched Cars on DVD last night. Im so impressed with all the detail already!!
First family Christmas @ Disneyland
23 days I got an email from SW saying your trip is geting close got me so excited. I haven't flown on SW in years but we are all flying in and out of different places to meet up for our combo trip. I have a one way flight from SNA into Oakland to meet up with hubby. I really don't care where I sit what does the $10 early check in get me?
On other airlines, the overhead bin space can fill up as well, but because of Southwest's free checked bag policy, it's usually not a big deal there. (If it's a heavy-business commute flight, the bins fill up faster.)
Thank you Drince88 I think I'll just try and check in 24 hrs in advance. It will be a short flight and like I said I'm flying alone and really don't mind where I sit.
Three weeks from yesterday! (it was my son's BD yesterday - no time for updates!) STILL nervous about our one day senario and how we are going to see what we want to see, but we've been before, we'll be back again - it's just hard not to want to do it all! LOL! My hubby has a much more laid-back point of view about this visit to DLR. So, just about two weeks until we actually leave for the trip. Lots to do! Can't wait!
USBurchs, we accomplished a lot. We technically had 2 days and no lines in DCA (private party day), but we still got a lot done. Take a deep breath and knowing we would be back was really helpful to relaxing and enjoying. You know how to maximize your FP uses and are a pro, you got this.
I did have to put my foot down at one point with the girls as they wanted to crisscross the parks like we tend to do when we have 5 days, but I pointed out to them that is a poor use of time when we only had one day in Disneyland. They started clustering their choices better at that point.
Have Fun and don't sweat the details.
Agree with candles71. Use your DLR skills and enjoy the day! Whenever we have limited time somewhere (at DLR or anywhere we have high expectations), I just tell myself that however limited our time may be, it is "reconnaissance" time for a future trip. That way I don't hyperventilate if we don't cover every single thing on my list -- I'll just have a much better idea of how to spend our time and what I want to see next time.
thanks, tea4two and candles! It's always good to have a pep talk from fellow Mousepadders before we go. You MousePlanet peeps are always SO awesome!!! <3
So, lets see . . . 15 days! WOOHOO!
11 days until we head out for DL!
12 days until the rest of our party will be there!
So excited for this trip, not just because it will be for my birthday but because I get to hang out with some of my favorite people for a few days. We are going to have a good time!

First family Christmas @ Disneyland
No matter what the slider below says, 6 days from today (next Thursday) I'll be hangin' with the Mouse!!! I've already got my reservations in for both a DL and a DCA AP early entry morning. I'm not gonna get much sleep this trip, but hopefully a good time will be had!
