    Barbaraan's Countdown to Disneyland Thread

    I am coming to the Disneyland Resort from March 31st until April the 4th. Since I live 1/2 way across the country in Chicago, a trip to Disneyland is a big event in my life. My last trip to Disneyland was last August. It was my 2nd trip, and my grandson's first. I have decided to come again. This time I am traveling with my grandson again, and his mom will be visiting for the first time.

    Sean really liked Disneyland. He has been to Disney World numerous times, and when I asked where he would like to go for a graduation present, he replied Disneyland. He asked, "Can Mom come too?"

    Well mom and I put our heads together, and decided to make this a birthday present instead. This way we could surprise Sean. He doesn't know that this trip is all booked. He won't find out until his birthday on March the 25th.

    Our trip is just 33 days away.

    66 days, May 3-8...I live in Indiana...going solo this time, for my birthday (May 5), but my brother will drive down from the bay area and meet stay for at least part of the time. Last trip in November (with my brother). Took my granddaughter in June and November 05...her busy schedule now makes it hard to plan a trip for the two of us...but sometime this year yet I hope!!

    Our trip is a bit farther out than yours at almost 3 months. We were just there in October though for my DD's sweet 16.

    Your Grandson will be so surprised!

    Enjoying the warmth and sunshine of Phoenix between Disney trips.

    Re: Barbaraan's Countdown to Disneyland Thread

    My grandson wanted to stay in the Grand Californian Hotel. I wanted to honor his request, but the pocketbook wouldn't allow it. So one day when I was talking to his mom, I told her how we could stay at the Candy Cane Inn for 2 nights for the cost of the Disney owned hotel. We decided to book it. I hope Sean is not too dissappointed. I booked one of their preferred rooms. I understand they have their own bus to and from the Disneyland Resort, and they are within walking distance. I can walk pretty well, so that is not a problem.

    32 days until my vacation.

    You won't be dissapointed with the Candy cane! It's great!
    And the free breakfast helps....
    Walking distance from the front gates...(and there is a bus).

    We ALWAYS stay at the Cane...and plan on doing so again in June.

    We are not going to say anything.Im hoping to keep them guessing all the way to LAX.They are 6 and 9 so I don't think they will figure it out.

    It will drive them nuts

    hahahah that's so awesome. i wish my parents did stuff like that for me when i was little. your kids will remember that forever! ~25 years into the future~ "One day, my mom and dad woke me and my sister up and we were still in our pj's and everything and they wouldn't tell us where we were going and then BAM! We were in Disneyland!! My parents were crazy."
