That's right. You're eyes aren't playing tricks on you. Koutesu is actually giving a trip report. While I have to be at stupid work at 7 am every morning (sorry, vacation hangover), I will be posting my trip report here in a combination of select photos, commentary, and YouTube slide shows.
We originally intended to go in August, but a few complications pushed it back to October. We went this last weekend, attending the parks on Friday and Sunday.
Those of you not in the know should know one thing. I really needed this vacation. You have probably seen what's happened in the national news or on certain shows (Inside Edition I know has run a story on this). In June, My friend/roommate, Travis Alexander, was murdered in the house we were living in at the time. Me and the other roommate didn't know if for several days since it was 3 single guys living in a 4500 sq ft house (the media keeps saying it was an apartment). With the everything going on and such a tragic event in the lives of many of us being aired on national tv, I really needed this get away.
It was me and my family on this trip. It was cheaper to drive from Mesa, Az. We stayed at the Best Western Cypress off of Katella and Knott Ave in Stanton (it was about $71/night). We drove and parked at Mickey and Friends (I love the experience of parking there for some reason).
Below is the overture of my vacation slide show. Please watch until I post some more commentary, pics, and slideshows.
