Well, it is decided. Disneyland it is in December 2012 for me. I haven't been there since the early eighties (long before DCA) so I'm excited. I'll miss my WDW fix this year, but I want to save up more for Florida in 2013 - plus Fantasyland should be done by then and Cars will be open for this trip. This trip will have a lot of nostalgia.
Any thoughts on my trip would be welcome.
8 days (depending on flight times some days will not really count)
6 day park hopper (longest I could get)
1 day at Knotts Berry Farm (Loved their mine train ride as a kid)
VIP tour at Universal Studios Hollywood. Only one day for it, and I love tours so I'm splurging on the tour.
Candy Cane Inn - Great reviews especially on Trip Advisor. The Disney hotels don't seem to offer the same perks as do their Florida cousins. It's just me, so I don't need a big room. (Sarah's blog is very helpful when looking at these choices).
No dining plan this year. I want to be more carefree - although I have to do the Blue Bayou. Gift cards here I come.
I will probably want to do several of the Disney tours. I like to do the ones in Florida and I like collecting those pins.
I'm sure I've forgotten a lot but I'm looking forward to everyone's help.
The Segway tour (Cruzin' California) and World of Color dining package are my must-do activities for semi-solo visits (my husband has a symposium at the Grand Californian we've made several times). Cruzin' California has a one-of-a-kind pin, so you'll like that part, too.
Don't miss ToonTown! I skipped it many years, not realizing how excellent it is...great theming and totally different from (what used to be at) WDW.
Other DCA/DLA-only rides: Indiana Jones and Monsters Inc. (not the Scare Floor like Florida). The Buzz Lightyear ride is slightly different, and you get to e-mail your photo for free at the end of the ride. I'm sure there's more, but those are my faves.
