Ickey Mouse!

It's official!
I booked our Disneyland trip today for March and I am so excited! We got such a great deal so that makes it even better.

Almost a year ago Anthony was going to Denver for a work thing. We decided it'd be fun if Sydney and I went also so I bought us airline tickets. Well the business trip was cancelled and we were given a credit for the airline tickets that expire in one year, which is April 17th of this year. Basically if we don't use these tickets by April we lose out, almost $700 worth. Yikes. (for future reference the refundable tickets are a very good option.)

Anyway, Anthony and I have been talking the past couple of months on whether we can afford to take a trip, should we just lose out on the money, etc. I started researching where Delta goes non-stop because really, when you have a toddler you don't want to be flying for 6 hours with numerous connecting flights to get to a destination that normally takes two. (San Fran is my example.) Basically we could do L.A. or Salt Lake City. Hmm, no brainer.
I started researching this whole priceline.com thing and although I have done it before, I didn't really get it. I read online that people were paying under $50 a night for Anaheim 3 star hotels. Long story short we are staying in a very nice hotel down the road from Disney for $46 a night. Compared to the $133 a night I was prepared to shell out, this is amazing! Our airfare is only $75 after the credit, and Disneyland is offering a 5 day pass for the price of 3. These people are practically giving us this stuff for free!

I am so excited, I think Anthony is starting to get excited, and Sydney keeps talking about Ickey Mouse. I know, I know...she probably won't remember the trip when she gets older, she will probably be afraid of some of the rides but we'll have a blast. They have a ton of toddler things there, and our hotel has an indoor pool so I am sure we'll spend a lot of time there too. I haven't been to Disneyland since I was 9 so I can't even imagine how different it is now.

Ickey Mouse here we come...in March!
