The Trip Is On!!! Trip report starts on pg. 39

Hi guys and gals!! Boys and girls!! Cats and dogs……well you get it!!

I am off and planning another fun filled trip to all of favorite fun place the Disneyland Resort!! Yay!! Woohoo!! Party time!! Only this is a bit different I am leaving WBG(my husband Scotty, otherwise known as Weird Bike Guy) and our army of three teenagers home. Yes, I am leaving them can you believe it? I am going with my closest friend who is gonna be nameless until I can think of a good nickname for her because she is not a disser. And she is leaving her husband, teenage daughter and stress filled job behind.

We decided last year we were making this trip and we are. I having been a busy planner and started these plans. Now we lead busy lives and email is sometimes the only communication we have. So mind you these plans have been made through emails shot back and forth to each other. I think we have done amazingly well. Mind you we have dubbed this a stress-free not overly planned trip, mind you at this point I have made plans.

One plan we had to have is the when, we are going February 21- February 24. I was really hoping for four nights but that is not to be. I am hoping to have 4 days though. We have reservations at Ayre’s Hotel on Katella Ave.http://www.ayreshotels.com/anaheim/
,now mind you during our non-planning I researched all of the hotels across the street from the resort and the resort hotels. We were fully intending to park within walking distance but, then I got to thinking why are we doing that? I have a premium AP with free parking. Silly me.

I had originally planned for the 4 night stay so I called today to change it to three nights and spoke to the manager Marcus and they have wonderful customer service. That is plus for me. I looked at tripadvisor.com and they are ranked number 1 in Anaheim among the users so that kind of excites me.

There are a few other things but this is enough plans for my no plan trip!!

For this post that is!!

Yay Kelly.

I know that you do.

I have more plans that I will be revealing later. I think that for my WDW friends I will add links to the pages on the DLR website for the meals that I reserved.

Aw mans. I wanted to be first, lol.

But you know I'm super thrilled you're going! Even if I wish it could be 2 weeks later I'm subbing.

My friend who may remain nameless until I can think of one was only able to get this time off. To coin a game show "she works for a major corporation."

We will get a chance to see each other again. Don't worry.

There will be more I promise!!

How about some more non-plans my peep’s? First thing D is gonna have to be her nickname at least for now. Maybe something better will come to me. We are going to rent an Impala to drive down, we are getting her corporate discount on it so that is cool. We decided to leave at like 5 am so that we can make it down in time to stop by the hotel and see if we can leave our luggage, and if Disneyland isn’t too terribly busy because it is President’s day we are gonna hit the park.

Oh the hope that the parks aren’t too busy I made a 1pm reservation for the Big Thunder Bbq!! This was one place that D and I both really want to try out. And I can almost taste it. And I am so tempted by some of the food there. And those of you that know me know that I have the app to check on ride waits so we will have an idea of if we are going to the park or hanging out else where. That is the great thing about the area there is so much to do!! This is the first on D’s and my non-plans.

Thank you Brett!! I am really looking forward to it. This trip is a little bit off beat for me. We are going to eat at places I don't normally because there are normally six of us.
