So the itinerary is set but a small update and an addition!!!

We leave this Friday and drive as far as Sacramento. We're meeting up with a friend I graduated from high school with and her sister (and families) and 4 ladies from the DIS (3 I've met in person & 1 new one & their families) for dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory!! I'm really excited to catch up with friends and meet new ones!!

We're staying in Hollywood on Saturday night but instead of heading straight to Anaheim Sunday morning......we're driving to Torrance to surprise my brother & sister in law!!! My big brother is a minister and we're going to show up for church!! Derek's girlfriend will be picking him up from the airport and we'll all meet up at the Paradise Pier Hotel early afternoon.

On Tuesday, I'm meeting up with Escape2Disney (Carrie) at Trader Sam's at 9pm. So if any of you Disers that are following along and happen to be in town......feel free to join us!!!

I know there are other Dis Diva's coming to the park that week for the Candlelight Processional (lucky winners).....so I'm hoping to catch up with a few of them.....even if just for a few minutes!!

On Saturday, I'm meeting up with 6Smiles (Kris) to meet in person and she's graciously donating clothes to my family!! I'll also see one of the Divas when she gets into town that evening.

Of course I'll be hunting Sherry down on her solo trip as well!! So much fun and a lot of Dis meets will just add to our magical family time!!

Had to go back and figure out when he left.......he left June 9th and we will see him Dec. 9th......EXACTLY 6 months!! He has posted he was missing his family on FB and it made me cry. It will be wonderful to have that time with him (and then know he's coming home a few weeks later)

Yes, I believe he'll come home for a short time but will be working on moving south and working at Disneyland (not thru the College Program). When he goes.....I think Tyler will be going with him and doing the same!!

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!! I'm a sucker for meet ups!! To me it's what makes Disney trips special......sharing a love and a friendship with others that "get it"!!!

Oh wow! That will be awesome for them. And for you too, cause then you have more reason to go and visit DLR! Hope it works out for them.

It's exciting and sad all at the same time. I've had the boys home and they've been wonderful helpers with the kids. It's also given Mike & I the chance to go out on Friday evenings for karaoke (which is how I recharge)....but if they both go, I won't have child care (nor will I be able to afford it with having 2 special needs kids).....but it's time.......I would never hold them back or ask them to stay. I'm darn lucky to have had their help this long!!

On the plus side.......awesome room rates and discounts.....access to Company D (CM store) and yes.......a VALID reason to go to Disneyland more often!!

Hm, I never thought about that aspect. That would be tough getting used to. I hope you can find some help with them gone.

All those bonuses sound so nice. Company D sounds exciting! I hope we get to go on the Diva trip!
