    My father was stationed there twice. It's a real desert. I've seen my fair share of road runners, coyotes, and tumbleweeds.

    Yes. I would NOT say it's the prettiest place I've ever been.

    You will have a brilliant time Johnie :D DTD is completely different to the one in Orlando, I preferred it and the parks are smaller.

    If you plan a trip to Hollywood to Grauman's Chinese Theatre and to walk the Walk of Fame it's not what you expect :( we thought it was quite dirty and there were some strange people around :lol: the further we walked the worse it got :lol:

    yea those strange Californians....

    while in hollywood...you can do...

    See the REAL Grauman's Chinese Theatre .. see the real forecourt...awesome!!

    Hollywood Museum at the Max Factor Building....I think it is the best place for hollywood memorabila

    The Kodak Theater...where the oscars are held..

    If you have an evening do a Haunted Hollywood tour!
    This is the only tour in Hollywood that visits famous sites of celebrity murder, mystery, scandal, and death.

    Come join the many spirits that bedevil tinsel town on a star studded history tour of actual HAUNTED places. See where blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe, breathed her last breath, and then pay your respects to this Hollywood Icon at her final resting place. Other attractions of unearthly curiosity are the crime scenes where Sharon Tate was brutally murdered, where River Pheonix overdosed only blocks from the Chateau Marmont where John Belushi was found dead in his room. Do you know of the Black Dahlia? She was the victim of the most notorious unsolved murder in Hollywierd's seedy past, and you can swing by the eerie apartment building where she lived. Perhaps you'll have a supernatural experience of your own at Hollywood's Most Haunted building, the Hotel Roosevelt, some of this hotel's celebrity guest have never checked out. Hollywood has a haunted history all its own, not even the best of screen writers could conjure up such a diabolical script, and yet, the true biography of this town is more chilling than any fiction known.

    The Haunted Hollywood Tour is full of SPINE TINGLING FUN and will take you to ACTIVELY HAUNTED places of interest in and around the Hollywood area.

    Ooooooh! You're going to have fun, Johnie!

    Just remember, it's going to be hot. Minimal humidity compared to Orlando, but more heat! :)

    One suggestion for a meal at DL/CA is the Storyteller Cafe at the Grand Californian. Prices weren't too outrageous when we were there in 2006. Not cheap, just not too outrageous! :)

    Johnie watch out for the long CA flights. I did the red-eye once and got so discombobulated that I ended up leaving my Disneyland souvenirs on the plane along with my 4 day old portable DVD player. I ended up having to re-buy my souvies on E-Bay!

    Also, if you want to make Jordan happy you can always visit Lucille Ball's grave/town and come see me too. It's only 40 mins from where I live!

    Have fun!
