Geo: 25.7207, -113.994We had a one hour time change during the night last night and we slept in. I was up around 8:00 and read on the verandah until everyone else woke up around 9:00. We got ready and Kelsie went to meet her friend at Ocean Quest at 10:00. Nikki and I had a 10:30 Palo Brunch reservation and Regan walked up with us to grab breakfast. Brunch was delicious! Our favorite was the Grape and Blue Cheese Pizza. While we were eating we saw a school of dolphins just outside the window jumping out of the water. We had arranged to meet the girls at our room at noon so that we could go to the Family Craft activity. After picking the girls up at the room we went to the Promenade Lounge for ... read more

Geo: 33.7664, -118.192We had breakfast at PCH Grill at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel today. Then back to the Disneyland Hotel to make sure that Bell Services had picked up our luggage to take to the ship. We had arranged for a shuttle service to take us to the cruise terminal because Disney Cruise Transportation didn't leave the Disneyland Resort Area until after noon and I wanted to be at the Cruise Terminal Earlier than that. Karmel Shuttle picked us up right on time and we took the 40 minute ride to the Los Angeles Cruise Terminal.Since we had checked in at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel we didn't have to check in at the Terminal and we had boarding group number 2. Kelsie and I got in line to check in for the kids programming and Nikki ... read more

Geo: 33.8083, -117.925Today our trip began. My parents were picking us up around 6:45 am so we had to be up early. Not only did we have to make sure that everything was in the luggage but, since we are having our master bath and bedroom remodeled while we are gone we had to get that all cleared out as well.My parents were right on time at 6:45 and we were off to the airport by 7:00. We arrived at the airport, dropped off our bags (Nikki's weighed 68 lbs) and headed off to the gate. As we were boarding, we were notified that we had been upgraded to First Class so that was a nice little treat. The flight was uneventful and we arrived at LAX on time.Our bags took forever to arrive and, due ... read more

Geo: 33.8327, -117.916After a short drive from the airport, we checked in at the Tropicana Inn and Suites in Anaheim. Our room was not ready so we grabbed the items we were going to need for our day in the parks. We decided to go into Disney's California Adventure first. The girls first wanted to ride Monster's Inc. Mike and Sulley to the Rescue. The sign said that there was a 10 minutes wait but, it turned out to be just a few minute wait and we were on the ride. After that we decided to walk back to see how long the wait was for Toy Story Midway Mania. On the way by, I grabbed FastPasses for California Screamin. The wait said 60 minutes and, since we had heard horror stories of four hour waits, ... read more

Geo: 40.6938, -111.958We were up bright and early so we could be at the airport for our 8:30 am flight on Delta. My mom and dad picked us up at 6:45 am. The ride to the airport was uneventful and we made it through security with no problems. Originally I thought we would be in the E Terminal since we were flying on a commuter plane but we were actually in the B Terminal so we headed over to the correct gate to wait for our flight.We flew to Long Beach, CA and were in our rental car by 9:35 am. Then off to our hotel in Anaheim... read more
