In which certain explanations are made, and pre-DL things are shared
Welcome, Gentle Readers. By way of introduction (and for those of you who hadn’t seen previous posts), last month I learned that my dad has been ill. As information kept coming in, the potential severity of the situation became clear: major surgery was going to be performed and prudence dictated that I had best make a trip back to the States. A date had been scheduled for the end of August, so I planned accordingly.
Knowing that this had the potential to be a very stressful trip and that some Disney R&R could thus be good for body and soul, we decided to build in a small handful of DL days on my way back to the island. Bookings were made :wub: …and then suddenly, one day Hawaiian Airlines changed its flight schedule (surprise! :ohmy: :pinch:) and my four-night stay turned into a week :eek:.
Plans got adjusted. Conversations were had. A fateful breakfast was consumed…and 6-2-6 decided to join me in L.A. for that week.
WE WERE GOING TO DISNEYLAND. :mickey:
For a variety of reasons, we hadn’t been planning on making a DL trip until next year (possibly the year after), but things changed and we’re going to make the most of it. It’s going to be a short trip – only 4 days at the parks, with some actual business-related stuff bracketing those days – but even a short stay at DL is better than none at all.
I’m now on my way to Tennessee to join my family, and will be meeting up with 6-2-6 back in L.A. on the 9th of September; that’s when the fun starts, and I’ll post live updates here as time and access allow. :happy: In the meantime, I wanted to share a couple of things to get the ball rolling.
