    We're leaving today!!!

    And I am up far too early to be out as late as I am going to be tonight.....

    I JUST realized :rolleyes008: that while my flight ticket says we land in LAX at 10:30pm that it will really be 1:30am my time. Then apparently it's about an hour to Anaheim from there. Hopefully, I will get a nice nap on the plane :p015:

    I've borrowed my mom's fancy GPS and have been told to guard it with my life....PA had duly warned me of where not to be when it gets dark. I am packed and have all sorts of stuff printed, including all 40 pages of the walk of fame directory.

    I am off to work for awhile to pretend to work :lol: I think all that I may accomplish is putting my away message on my email and my phone ;)

    Did I mention that we leave TODAY???? :smiley4::sigs-cartoon-005::sigs-tv-010::sigs-tv-003:

    :207: :207: Johnie's leaving for Disneyland :smiley4: :smiley4: the day is finally here :D you are going to have a fantastic time :hug2:

    We landed just as the rush hour started so the drive to Anaheim wasn't very nice, all those lanes of traffic :shocked025: :lol: The time of night you will arrive it should be fairly quiet by LA standards :D

    You'll have no trouble finding your way.

    Hey Johnie - YOU'RE GOING TO DISNEYLAND TODAY !!!!!!!

    I KNOW!!!! I've been telling everyone I'm going to the Motherland :p

    I figure it'll be at least 2am before I am headed to the hotel so traffic shouldn't be too bad.

    405 to the 5 at 2amish...yea you should be fine...

    I gave her the best advise any southern californian could give anyone visiting the area...dont freak out with traffic...there isnt anything you can do about it so whats the point of getting upset?

    Use rush hour or sig alerts to star watch on the freeway!

    OH MY GOODNESS!! IT'S HERE!! IT'S FINALLY HERE!! You know, in some ways, I think you've been planning for this trip your whole life....for you, and your love of all things Walt...it truly *is* the Motherland.

    You are going to have a BRILLIANT time...I can NOT wait to see all the pictures!

    Take a nap on the plane if you can, hon, but if you don't I wouldn't worry about it too much...when you land that adrenaline is going to kick in and you'll be bouncing off the walls of that rental car....after all, YOU'LL BE IN DISNEYLAND!!!

    Remember to turn that GPS on *before* you need it :D

    And traffic? BAH!! You've sat through NYC and Green Witch Rush Hour!!! It'll be a piece of cake!!! (Just remember to keep your tank full :wink: )

    OMG. I'm just so excited FOR you I can hardly drink my coffee!

    You should be well at your hotel before rush hour begins again, Johnie. And it does begin early! You've driven in the DC area (one of the places I refuse to drive!), so you can handle LA. The GPS system will be terrific when you're planning freeway exits--give you sufficient time to work your way over. :thumbs_up:

    You're going to have a terrific time! Hope you can send the occasional live report. If not, we'll wait until you return! :lol:

    :wave:

    Ha, ha! I am at work.....just finishing up some last minute things.

    I have indeed driven in DC and lived to tell the tale so I am not worried.

    Turn GPS on BEFORE I need it...ok got it :p015:
