  • Trip Report Trip Report 10/24/09 - Thanks for all the help!

    Thank you to all of you who advised us and quelled my panic! My husband and I had a fantastic trip to the DLR this past weekend, and we wouldn't have been able to do it without all of your wonderful suggestions and guidance.

    We have never done a one day trip before, but I was so excited by all the Halloween stuff (me and everybody else I guess) that my wonderful husband and I decided to fly down for a crazy trip. I had to work on Saturday, so we took a quick Southwest flight from San Jose to the John Wayne Airport after work.

    I liked the quick flight to John Wayne, it was our first time flying and it sure was quicker and less tiring than the usual drive. For $45 each way, it was a good deal too.

    We rented a car and drove to the Motel 6 at 100 Disney Drive. It took about fifteen minutes, and we were quite happy with our clean, newly remodeled room, even thought the beds were not great.






    We stopped at 7/11 for water and breakfast stuff arrived in our room at around 9pm. We were too tired to go to the Garden Walk Mall, which would have only been a short walk from the hotel so we ordered pizza from Marris, Marris Pizza Restaurant

                Snacks, we had lunch at the Carnation Cafe, our first time eating there for lunch as we always go for breakfast. The soup was awesome! And the sandwich must have been good too, because I asked my husband for a bite, but he finished it before "remembering" to give me one. : )

                  Here's a link to a video of the fireworks; you can see what a great view we had of the globe and of Zero flying.

                            You sure did a lot during your one day visit. Great pictures.

                            MiceChatters indeed know their stuff about Disneyland.

                                That Steam coming from Behind Rainbow Ridge was probably the Rancho Del Zocalo kitchens

                                  AdvFroGuy, thanks!

                                  That makes sense, I guess; it certainly was in the right location I think. It was pretty early in the morning, about 9am, I wonder what they were doing that made all that steam? Maybe it was a heavy duty dishwasher or something. : )

                                    I think it's pretty funny too! I'm planning on emailing that photo to customer service for the App to see what they say, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
