    My life is a Disney commercial right now. I am too exctied to sleep. I feel asleep for an hour or so, then woke with a start and could not fall back to sleep. Ive been up since midnight. I have to get up in about 30 minsutes. I think I am gonna call it a lost cause and just stay up. Its not like I have not stayed up for over 30 hours before. I was up for 31 hours last tiem I went to WDW.

    Have fun and take lots of pictures and eat lots of good food and all that other fun stuff!!
    They have been going to Disneyland for many years. My second trip to WDW was with them. I was telling them about the trip I had been on the year before and they have a timeshare there and were going there a few months later. I got to go and I only had to pay for airfare and park tickets. My cousins are Disney nerds, not on my level, but pretty high. My youngest cousin in that family has eaten in Club 33. So they know where to sit and how to get around the park. However, I am a very sneaky person and I can find a needle in a haystack. If I can find out if, when, and who is going I can find them. I'd love to do something really crazy to surprise them, like be on the Jungle cruise boat as it arrives at the loading dock, but that would be hard. Even something simple might rock. I told one of the cousins, that I was going to be there (she is in Michigan so she will not be), and she has agreed to help gather info for me

    These realtives live in Northern California so I get to see them at best once a year. I just found out today they are coming for Thanksgiving. So even if they are not going to be there, I'll get to see them soon.

    I leave in 4 days. I'm starting to get like that kid in the WDW commercial who is too excited to sleep. I just found out that some relatives may be going to Disneyland next week. They have no idea that I am going. I would love to really surprise them there. First thing is first, I need to verify the intellegence and then gather some more. If they are going to be there then its "Operation: Surprise the Heck out of my Cousins"!

    Re: Melonballer's Disneyland Trip Planning Journal

    I just realized today that I only have 3 weeks until I go. I have been imagining the trip down, which in my mind will be on time, smooth, and constantly moving. In other words, no traffic, no delays. One cool thing about my trip is my friends from San Diego are going to come visit me and take me to San Diego for a day. It should be fun. I haven't decided if I am going to make any more PSs. Luckilly I have a lot to do between now and then to keep me busy.

    Ok, Well after reading Al's latest articel I'm going to make doubly sure taht I visit Tom Sawyer Island. While the changes may not happen, I want ot be sure I see it the way it is, in case they do occur. I've never gone out to TSI, so it is something I have to do.

    Well I went to the Tacoma Mall Build-a-Bear and saw what they have, so I should be able to tell what is exclusive to the Downtown Disney Location. Of course most items that are will probably be marked. Tomorrow I got to get a lunch PS for Blue Bayou for later in the week, like the 16th or 17th.

    Well I just made a PS arrangement for Ariel's Grotto on the 14th. So I will probably spend my morning over at DCA that day.

    Not sure what you are looking for at Build a Bear, but when we were there last we were able to get mouse ears, mickey glove hands and a mickey mouse club shirt. Also now they have Build-a-Bear Mickey and Minnie.

It was easier to spot him last November when I was there than the previous June...less people...

    Mark Twain...not many people riding it last November...so you might want to ask the CM, or knock on the cabin door and see if you can pilot it!!

    Build-A-Bear did not have any DL themed clothes when my granddaughter and I were there in June 2005, but perhaps that has changed. They do have a LOT of great stuff though!!
    Thanks for the info
