Thread: Today I wish I was

    Oh I know that feeling. Staring through that large gate in the middle of the entrance to Disneyland. When I first started with the company, and still living in the Sacramento area, they sent me down to Anaheim for training class. It was on the other side Harbor Blvd, over the bridge. So I actually flew in a day early for the training and went to DL. The next day was my training class. It was over around 4pm. My flight back home wasn't until 9pm or so. So I went over to Downtown Disney to have dinner and walk around. I kept going over to the big gate and just watching people walk around front, take pics in front of the big Mickey head/flowers and watch the DL Railroad go by. And this was not too long after I let my AP expire and kept telling my wife that I should have held on to the AP just a little bit longer.
    Disneyland will always be home, but WDW is starting to win me over.

    Disney should just know by now that they should ALWAYS LET ME IN, whether I have a ticket or not . . .

    I thought that was policy after you've had an AP for so many years...

    Today I wish I was able to book FPP for our whole short trip instead of just the first day!

    I like the Treehouse tour.

    Spending the afternoon at the pool, with a couple drinks and relaxing. Because that's what I need today.

    Okay, she (Trisha Daab, author of The Not So Evil Stepmom In The...) replied and posted the link on a Facebook thread. They are like steamed buns with cheeseburger filling. With pickles! So not egg rolls but still definitely in the Chinese/Asian category. Sort of.

    Check out her book, it's good! About several family trips over the years. She just released a new one in good at WDW too.

    Oops, almost forgot. Today I wish I was getting ready to leave tomorrow, instead of next Thursday...
