Well, I just got back from Disneyland, where my daughter and I had an amazing time at Mickey's Halloween Party! (Trip Report) I can't believe I'm actually planning my next trips, but something amazing happened recently, and I won a set of Disney gift cards from a local grocery store sweepstakes. So, so, so awesome! Is there any better prize than money that has to be spent at Disney? Soooo that prize will pave the way for a little tiny family trip I was already hoping to pull off in May (2 months before my youngest turns 3) and ALSO I decided that my sister and I should do a quick trip with just the two of us. She is my best friend, but we live 3.5 hours apart, and have 9-kids-under-12 between the two of us, so quality time doesn't happen too often. After MUCH deliberation, I have picked Saturday, December 1st as the day, and we are planning with that in mind! (Even though we know Saturdays can be really crazy, especially in December, and also know the Candlelight Processional is happening that day...) But guys, we are over 30. (Me, significantly so, hahaha!) And the parks are open from 8 to midnight. And those Saturday single-day tickets are kinda expensive. And this is a possibly-one-time trip for the two of us. We will be spending a large part of the day at CA, since my sister hasn't been there since 2005. (And it's almost a new park since then...) But I'm pretty sure we're going to add park hoppers, and spend some time in DL too, if we can avoid the crazy crowds on Main St. What I'm saying, is I don't see us wanting to go home before the park closes, but we're old enough that I don't know if we can hang! I guess we'll see!
