We checked with family - they're looking forward to our visit - Scott talked to his aunt, who thought his uncle had already emailed us back.... oh well! Not sure what we might do with them - probably some general sight seeing. Last time they took us to Balboa Island, then one of Scott's cousins took us on a whirlwind tour of the Hollywood area (Graumans, the Walk of Fame) then up (and down and left and right!) Muholland Drive & thru Griffith Park.
So, earlier today, DH was looking around the Star Wars boards & found that some folk were planning on seeing PotC3: At World's End
at the El Capitan Theater during the Star Wars Celebration convention. Quite a few were planning on the midnight showing on Friday, but that would make an awfully late night for us. He got to thinking.... could we push our flight forward to Monday so we could spend more time at the convention and see the movie Sun night? Our budget is in good enough shape to add an extra day, so we decided to see what we could do...
Turns out since NorthWest changed our original flight's departure time by more than an hour - we could reschedule our flight with no additional charge!
So we're now flying out of LAX on Monday, 5/28 at 9:45am. We added an extra day to our hotel ressie & car rental & DH is going to try to score VIP tickets from the El Capitan website later today. Our hotel is right near a Red Line Metro station, which we can take almost to the theater door - so that will save some driving stress & parking $$.
It's not an extra day at Disney, but I still think we'll enjoy our extra vacation time!
