We are planning to go to Disneyland this summer…matter of fact; we arrive in California on June 13th around 1 pm. It was our plan to just visit Disneyland for two days (the 14th and 15th), but everyone tells us we must do California Adventure too. I had no idea that when I booked our trip, it would end up to be such a busy weekend (opening of Cars). My goal with scheduling in early June was to avoid the heat as much as possible. Now, I am terrified that is going to be a mad crush. I am hoping some of you might have advice to help make it go as smoothly as possible. I can’t re-schedule the trip…non-refundable tickets and all that jazz.
Here are a few details about us:
Ages: (2) parents and (3) kids…ages 9,6, and 3 (but will be turning 4 on the 17th…so we are celebrating his birthday early.
Hotel: Staying 4 nights at the Park Vue Inn
Other plans: We are hoping to see a bit of the Hollywood sights…just planning a few hours for all of that. We are planning to rent a car and drive down to San Diego on the 17th. While in San Diego, we plan to visit SeaWorld. We are returning home on the 21st.
If you have any suggestions on websites, books or blogs, please let me know. UGH, I am a planner to the extreme and this has thrown me off so badly that I am almost dreading going. This will honestly probaby be the last time we visit Disney until our kids are much older…it’s that once in a lifetime type visit and I really wanted to make it special. Now, I just feel overwhelmed.
We are newbies at Disneyland, only have been there once…but it was just for a day. I just ordered The Unofficial Guide Disneyland 2012 and Lots to Do Inline from Amazon today.
Thanks so much!
