    I know I shouldn't, but I can't help but keep an eye on the extended forecast for our week in California and it is looking perfect for us moss covered north westerners! So far no a chance of rain in sight and about 70 and sunny most days!!!!!

    I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!

    I literally took a screen cap on my phone yesterday of Grants Pass and another one of Anaheim for the days we are there and showed them to my kids. Nothing like 30-40 degrees warmer and no rain forecasted! :smooth::cool1::thumbsup2

    Part 15 - One Week To Go!!!!

    [​IMG]


    Okay, this is going to be a short one as pretty much everything is done!

    • Double Queen Suite room at Hotel with indoor pool/water slide next to airport with shuttle to airport SET!
    • Flights to LAX and back SET!
    • Transportation via 2 private cars to and from the Hotel SET!
    • Reservations for a Deluxe Queen room at Desert Palms Hotel and Suites including full breakfasts and rooftop viewing of the fireworks SET!
    • 5 Day Park Hopper passes for Sunday the 26th thru Thursday the 30th SET!
    • MaxPass for all 5 days SET!
    • Fantasmic! Dining Package at Blue Bayou and 1st showing of Fantasmic! front and center followed by 9:30pm fireworks viewing from there SET!
    • Plan for the Adult Beverage Walkabout on Thursday set for our 21yr old daughter ending with World of Color SET!
    • General idea on meals balancing getting the "goodies" and some more paleo-style meals in the parks SET!
    • Weather - 82/58 on Sunday, 80/57 on Monday, 78/54 on Tuesday, 67/47 on Wednesday, 80/48 on Thursday, and fly home on a 73 degree afternoon CHECKED!
    • Crowd levels are pretty cool - "Yup, its Packed" for Sunday as you would expect followed by 4 straight days of "Hey, its Allright" per isitpacked.com CHECKED!

    As far as daily itineraries we're keeping things pretty relaxed, just knowing generally what park we will start with each day and letting MaxPass help guide us :thumbsup2

    We are waning to do a DISMeet of some sort, which right now is looking like it will happen sometime on Wednesday the 29th - maybe late morning or early afternoon?

    So now with all of that set I'm just watching all of the Disneyland Holiday YouTube vids and gearing up for Thanksgiving.

    And I'm looking to you DISBoarders to throw out suggestions for what you think is cool to do and see in the parks during this magical time of year. We have done the holiday season at WDW but this is our first time experiencing it at DLR. I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts, stories, and even those little things that you love about the season. Have a DisneyTastic Day! :goodvibes

    Mike

    We will be in the Blue Bayou reserved area up front and center, do you know where your area is in relation to it?

    On Sunday we will be at the RBT reserved seating. So we will be on the terrace with a table and chairs for Fantasmic Sunday.

    Then Thursday we are doing the dessert party for World Of Color!

    Hey Mike! Hope you got home safe and sound from your trip! Sorry we missed each other!

    We had a great time, and I kept my eye open for you and your family, but never saw you all.

    Can't wait to enjoy your trip report and hear all about how your week went!

    Well, I missed your send off, and by now your back in the daily grind. I hope your trip was fantastic beyond all measure and the birthday celebration was fun and responsible. ;)
