    Re: Barbaraann's Countdown to Disneyland Thread

    The older that I get, the more I begin to wonder if my next trip to Disneyland just might be my last. Now I don't want to sound morbid, but I am approaching the ripe old age of 65 on my next birthday. Money is tight, and I get more and more concerned about traveling alone. Even though I don't mind doing things alone at all. I have always been a loner by choice.

    So, I am really looking forward to squeezing as much fun out of this next vacation as I possibly can. My late brother had a philosophy about living each day as if it was your last. Spending time with people and telling them exactly how you feel because it may be the last time that you see them. My brother died way too young in 1994, at the age of 48.

    Now I might live to be 100, but I don't know that for sure. I do leave the park on my very last day with the thought in my head that I will return. I never glance back. I just leave with the visions of all the goodness of the place in my heart, and on my camera's memory card.

    Hey, I'M 48! At least that's my age "outside the berm". Once I'm inside, I'm a solid 11.

    Re: Barbaraann's Countdown to Disneyland Thread

    I wish that I was in better shape for my age. I know that I find it difficult to last an entire day in the themepark without resting somewhere along the way. Chances are if I sat down on a bench, I might take an unexpected nap. It appears that the park has some long hours on the days that I will be there. That means that I really do need to make a point of going back to the hotel for a nap, or at least a rest period. I might even soak in the hot tub, or sit in the hotel pool. I hope the weather will accomodate that.

    I am looking forward to my 4 days, but I do need to be sensible about it. I have my walking shoes, and my ART pass, and my mind is set on not trying to be Super Woman.

    Re: Barbaraann's Countdown to Disneyland Thread

    I watched Cars, and the sequel the other day. They were being shown back to back on one of my U-verse channels. It made me think about how it is going to look at Carsland in DCA, even though I won't get to see it this trip. I guess what I will see will be a lot of Construction Walls.

    I have this thing about Construction Walls. I really don't like having them in any of the photographs that I take. I guess that will probably be a real challenge. I am sure there will be plenty of new and wonderful things to photograph. I am sure that I can add to my collection of sign pictures, with all the new offerings springing up.

    I will be enjoying the parks in just three week's time.

    There are a few vantage points where you can see behind the walls. You will leave the parks with a renewed appetite for returning ASAP. I was walking through the parks Tuesday and I just can't get enough of seeing what's lying just beyond the construction walls. As someone who is detail oriented, I can only imagine some of the eye candy I'll find once the walls come tumbling down. I will do my best to meet you when you're here. I hope the events leading up to your trip, as well as the trip itself, are safe and fun beyond words.

    Barbaraann's Noon Meet Marathon

    I have started a Meet Thread. See exactly what I will be up to, each day at noon, on the four days of my vacation.

    Re: Barbaraann's Countdown to Disneyland Thread

    My vacation is just 8 days away. I am presently deciding just how I will get from the airport to my hotel. I think that I am going to treat myself to a taxi, rather than try and figure out a cheaper way. The cheaper way will definitely not be the fastest way, and I am arriving late at 5:32 p.m. That's late for me, since I have always had morning flights before.

    Once I get settled into my hotel, I'm not really sure what I will feel like doing. I am sure Disneyland will "be calling my name", and I will want to head over there. Not to enter the park, but perhaps to take a lot of photographs. I only have a 4 day parkhopper, and the next day I will be doing Early Entry at 7 a.m.

    I have lots to do before my flight takes off.

    I will take notes. That's for sure. It's definitely a given that I will be taking a lot of photographs. I certainly understand that it's a possibility that my noon time visits to The Hub might be solo endeavors. I will be pleasantly surprised if I get a few visitors. Not too many people can get away from their daily routines to spend a weekday at Disneyland. In the meantime, I will say hello to all my Disney pals immortalized there. Especially Pinocchio, and Jiminy.

    Thanks. I always have a whole lot of fun at Disneyland. I sure wish that I lived closer, so I could visit more often.
