everyone has 2-day park hoppers and face passes. extra magic hour is at disneyland on tuesday and california adventure on wednesday. do this anyway you want. strider and i will definitely be setting up shop in disneyland on tuesday. come see dia de los muertos and villains square with us.
come hang out during mickey's halloween party. we will be dressing up and trick-or-treating through out the park, first hitting toon town and then seeing how long before strider passes out. make your bets now, the pool is up to $50.
if we can't meet up to go trick-or-treating, let's try to at least get good seats together for the parade and fireworks!
we plan to spend most of wednesday at california adventure. catch us around Cars-Land and Coco's Plaza De La Familia.
casual dining, italian cuisine and a great view of the paint the night parade beginning at 8:50!
our last morning all together will include a farewell brunch at the Grand Calfornian. And for those that are able to stay an additional night, my parents are going to take Strider for some much needed down time while we hit up
Brunch service at the Grand California Hotel & Spa. We will all be meeting up around 10:45 before heading over.
check out is at 11:00AM.
This is a trip for the whole family so please do not feel obligated to spend all your time with Strider and myself. I know a 3 year old's amusement park pace is a much slower than most. However, there are a few pitstops along the way that I would really love for all of us to be together.
