    Keith's PRE-trip report 2010

    This trip literally came out of nowhere just today. I got tickets to go to the D23 Day at the Disney Studios & Archives Tour , so I now have a trip planned to my favorite place on earth, Disneyland, with my brother for August 14th.

    The Studios are about 2 hours away from the park, so we're considering Universal between the Tour and the park. From what I see of Universal so far, it's easily just a one-day park with a handful of attractions.

    I plan on taking hundreds of pictures both of the Tour and of all the parks that we visit with lots of the construction in DCA. If anyone would like any pictures in specific or anything sent back, please let me know now if you would like anything. I'm more than happy to help out my Disney buds.

    It's not known where we're staying at or even our final itinerary, but I'll keep everyone posted up until then and I'll give you all a debrief in my trip report when I return.

    Re: Keith's PRE-trip report 2010

    If you're from the eastern seaboard, I'd strongly suggest waiting until after 2012 to visit Disneyland. That way California Adventure will no longer be under renovation and Cars Land will be finished as well.

    Just as a little tidbit of information, my goal for this trip is to take 2,000 pictures!

    Re: Keith's PRE-trip report 2010

    Okay all, here's the schedule:

    11 Aug: I fly into Burbank, CA where my older brother will pick me up in a rental car. We'll do non-park stuff like Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and I want to go to Kingswell Avenue.

    12 Aug: Universal Studios Hollywood theme park and we're going to take a VIP tour of the actual Universal Studios. With the VIP Tour package we get front-of-the-line privileges for the rest of the day at the park.

    13 Aug: Universal Studios Hollywood again

    14 Aug: Walt Disney Studios & Archives Tour and non-park stuff

    15 Aug: Checkout of Burbank hotel and drive to SNA to turn car in and go to Disneyland; DL & DCA for rest of day

    16 Aug: DL/DCA

    17 Aug: DL/DCA

    18 Aug: DL/DCA; fly home to BOI from SNA at 6pm

    Grand total: A little over $1200 excluding food/souvenirs/gas

    Does anyone have any ideas on what I could have Dave Smith autograph for me? If he's present that is

    Re: Keith's PRE-trip report 2010

    UPDATE:

    All previous dates are still applicable with just one change, but we've decided what we'd like to do while at parks

    11: My brother is taking me to Van Nuys to show me a TV show set after I arrive at LAX

    14: Archives Tour and Kingswell Avenue along with other Hollywood sightseeing (i.e. movie stars homes, etc.)

    While at Disneyland we decided to do a character breakfast at Plaza Inn down Main Street. For Universal we're going to do an unlimited food pass for a day. Something like $48 for the entire day. Pretty good I think if you utilize it.

    I've decided on what I'm going to have Dave Smith sign for me. I have two copies of the premier issue of D23 Magazine so I'll have him sign one for me.

    Grand total for the trip dropped by a few hundred down to around $800. So either more money pocketed or more souvenirs bought. I'm thinking of buying a Sleeping Beauty Castle Olszewski piece and maybe a few pins.

    Nighttime entertainment for DL: Fireworks at DL one night, World of Color the other two nights

    24 days and counting!!!
