    I'm so late to the party, considering it's almost the end of 2017! But I just wanted to say that I absolutely LOVED your trip report! Thank you for all your insight! My family and I are going in June of next year, so I've been trying to do as much research as possible on the days...and the crowds...and the heat! (We come from the Seattle area)

    Your report answered so many questions and your writing "voice" was really enjoyable. Thanks! I hope you have another trip planned. ;)

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the report. We don't have a specific plan for our next trip, yet. We do quite a bit of travel, seeing our kids. In fact we're on our way back from Vegas again as I'm typing this, after visiting our daughter and her fiancee for Christmas. We will get back to Disneyland at some point, and are tossing around dates for WDW as well.

    Good luck on your trip. I'm not sure if you read through our pre-trip report, but that has a few details as well in regards to our planning. The link to that should be in my signature below.

    Thank you! Yes, I've been flipping through your PTR too. I've been many times, but it's always been just myself and my husband. This year we're adding a toddler and a Kindergartner. :scared1:

    Plus, I've never been in June. It looks like the crowds were really manageable! I'm hoping that's the case. We went in October and I feel like those crowds were the worst I've seen so far.

    Congratulations to your daughter and new soon-to-be son-in-law! They look very happy together. I hope your family had a wonderful Christmas!! (And a safe trip back from Vegas!)

    I loved your TR! We are going to DLR in July. We have been do WDW dozens of times with our daughter (15 yo). She has been asking to go to CA to see some other things as well as DLR. after reading your TR we are trying to add one more night to our reservation. We are using our DVC points to stay at the Grand Californian-we we’re lucky enough to get our reservation at the 7 month mark But now have to waitlist the add on night. But after hearing about your experience at the BW we will gladly stay there if the waitlist doesn’t some through.

    I picked up a lot of great tips from your TR and we were so happy to see they have the animation academy. That was always a favorite of ours at HS!

    Thank you for the great TR and congrats to your daughter!!

    Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed our TR. I'm sure you'll love the Grand Californian. The BW will be a step down, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Have a great trip!
