    A Brit-Chick Goes Solo in Disneyland I've Arrived in California!

    So, it's official! I'm in Anaheim! Arrived yesterday after a loooonnnnggggg journey from London (ended up being awake for just over 25 hours by the time I finally got my head down in hotel). Jet-lag woke me up this morning (23rd September) at 4am (whhhattt!!! ) so have spent the last couple of hours preparing for my first day in the parks and emailing my hubby who's still in England.

    Today, I am going to be scouting the parks, meeting Jaxum for lunch at Blue Bayou and attending Lou's meet at World Color which includes a yummy dessert party! Sounds like a fun day.

    I will try and post some photos when I get back to my room tonight - but now, I'm off to explore - woohoo!!

    Hi everybody - had good intentions to do my trip report 'on-the-spot' but time totally ran away with me and never got an opportunity to type anything up whilst I was actually in Anaheim - got back to the UK yesterday and plan on uploading my trip report and some photos over the next few days, so stay tuned.

    Just in summary though, had a wonderful 4 days in California - Destination D was AWESOME, the parks were amazing and I made some new friends on my travels... can't believe I'm back home already, but still buzzing from what has been one of my favourite Disney trips ever.

    I hope everybody else who attended Destination D had as wonderful time as I did.

    I was at Destination D as well, I wish I had known you'd be there, I would have looked for you! Where did you sit? We spent most of our time on the left side of the stage in front of the giant screen. ONE time we were able to sit in the middle towards the front, but we just didn't want to wait in line that long to be able to sit there every time. It was fun searching for Lou too! lol We weren't able to attend the dessert party but we met up with him a few times and chatted.

    I'm so excited that the event is coming to WDW in the spring, I will definitely be going to that one and participating in the scavenger hunt this time too!
