Oh, that's great, blame it on the little guy. How original. He must've read the schedule wrong with his one eye.

UPDATE:

So, I haven't registered for my birthday fun card. Anyone have any directions I can do to make sure I get one?

For the second May trip, there might be a chance that we're not going with some of my cousin's co-workers because the one with timeshare had a heart attack last weekend (and he's only 24 ! its crazy.). So I asked my cousin's wife to talk to them to see if its a good idea for him to be going to DL just a month after the incident. So, if that doesn't work out, we need to find another place to stay. If that happens, the number of people will go from 9 to 5. I don't really mind because it will pretty much just be family and we get along soo well

I was looking and at the Tropicana Inn, we can get a rate of $119 a night and its right across the street! Right now we're just aiming for a good rate. that means it will be $59 for the weekend per person We need to find out though as soon as possible so we can better prepare.

Yikes! A heart attack at 24, that's really scary!

I put the link on my TR for you to register. You really don't need to, but I guess it's a good idea? Maybe because you're already an AP'er they have all your info in the "system" already? Just go to City Hall and tell them it's your birthday and you want your dang fun card!!

I know, thats really scary for him being almost the same age as me. We're thinking about it or either the Paradise Pier because my cousin has a coupon from the military for a special going through July on getting the hotel rate there for $119 a night (same price as the Tropicana Inn) so we might go for that as well.

So I don't have to go to guest services to get my fun card? Just go to City Hall for it when I get into the park??

Yep! That's what I'm going to do, so I'll tell you. But I think that's what Kerri did when it was Micah's birthday.

You know the PP would be fun because you are onsite and therefor have the extra excitement. But you know the Tropicana is closer I've heard.

Good to know ! I'm not sure on the rates for the other onsite hotels so we're going to call asap to get more info because it would be fantastic to stay at a resort hotel.

We stayed at the Tropicana in March & it was fine. We stayed the first 2 nights at the DL Hotel & then moved over to the Trop for the rest of the trip. The rooms are standard sized & our only complaint was the pillows......suggest you bring your own!!
We loved staying "on property".....but I can tell you the walk to & from the Trop is WAY closer than the DLH & PP....... so it's what you're looking for.

I really hurt my heel a couple of nights ago and I'm not exactly sure whether or not it will affect me in the future. I'm hoping that it isn't something serious. So distance is a big thing for me right now. When it comes down to it, we might go with the Tropicana just because of the distance. We'll see though!!!!

"All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you. " - Walt Disney

I've been going through a tough time this semester in one of my design courses. Its been very trying and a little bit like being a fish out of water and its surprised me because I usually pick things up really fast and breeze by the semester. This quote really hit home and when it happened to me this semester, it really opened my eyes. When I read it today it made me smile to think that Walt went through it too =)

This has nothing to do with my Pre-TR but it made my day!

Thanks for sharing that. Mr. Walt was always a profound man and very wise. I read one biography of him recently and honestly didn't realize that adversity he went through. You assume that everything went smoothly because of his accomplishments but truth be told he had to go on a hard journey to get to where he was.

Chin up girl, higher education can be tough but it only makes you stronger!!! Work hard so you can play hard.....in Disneyland!!!

I just read this whole report over the past three days (*coughatworkcough*). And they're so great! I love seeing all your old photos too and you guys are such a cute couple. So excited you have more trips planned.

And don't worry too much about school, everyone totally goes through those moments in certain classes and I think they usually turn out ok (as in, "I just want to pass!") in the end.

Over the summer I think I'm going to read a biography on Walt, but first I'm going to finish my Encyclopedia that my fiancee got me for my birthday. Thanks for the encouragement! I really love that Walt quote though. Its fantastic

Thanks for taking the time to read my TRs. They are kind of lengthy and they'll never end! Its so nice of you to take the time to look through everything haha

I'm an over achiever and if I don't get an A, I get upset! Its silly. I'll live with a B though, but definitely a C. I can't take it! Thanks for the encouragement though!!!

Poor thing. There is nothing worse than a course or a professor that bedevils you. Keep your chin up and continue to attack it and all will be okay. Goodness I sound like the Mom that I am.
