Ok. So it's Saturday today. Tomorrow I hit the road for Anaheim. All I can say is that it's about time I get a vacation. I plan to take my laptop so A)I still have the internet, B)I have a crapload of videos and music from Disney parks (I know, where Dreams Come-something or other), and C)I can officially do a trip report. Even T.R.I.P. is an acronym for Trip Report In Progress.
All I have left is to pack. Our park tickets arrived 2 weeks ago (my company goes through Working Advantage, so at least we got some kind of discount). I also stayed up late the other night burning CDs for the drive from Phoenix to Anaheim. I memorial-ized the 6 disc Musical History of Disneyland and the Pirates of the Caribbean CD and Haunted Mansion CD I have onto 5 discs (which I added Phantom Manor ride through I downloaded from another site).
I also burned 2 CDs for the Disney Eurobeat CD that AVEX produced for Tokyo Disneyland back around 2000. For those who don't know, AVEX got the rights to remix Disney music into eurobeat music which was used for the Club Disney promotion at TDL at that time. AVEX also teamed up with video game company Konami to make Dance Dance Revolution: Disney's Rave/Disney Mix. Mickey Mouse March~Eurobeat Version was also used for the dance game Para Para Paradise. Those of you who are eurobeat fans might recognize the names Dave Rodgers and Domino.
(Kimura Takuya, Mickey, Minnie, and others dance to Night of Fire and Mickey Mouse March.)
I really can't wait to leave tomorrow. All I have to do go to my parents' house and we'll pack up the 2 cars we're using. There'll be 10 of us! My parents, me, my younger brother, my older sister, my bother in law, my two nieces (one of which is about 15 months), my nephew, and my aunt.
I will have lots of fun. I'll update as my trip progresses.
