Well I got the news
tonight that we will be cancelling our Christmas trip to Disneyland. It is sad to get this news just days before
our October trip to Disneyland because if I
had a choice I would prefer to go in December.
Instead I am going to Disneyland in six days with a bum knee and a need for an
Electronic Convenience Vehicle (ECV) which I am not looking forward to
doing. There is no way I can cancel the
ECV because I won't be able to even make it from our hotel to the Parks. But we can't cancel our airline tickets
without penalties when we do use them, and our hotel is prepaid and non
refundable. If we decided not to go, we
would not get the money back so we are still going in October, and will be
attending Mickey's Halloween Party. I
wasn't paying attention so missed out on an opportunity to go to a pass holder
event only at Disneyland so that too is a
No, this is not a happy
Dose of Disney. In fact, as I write it I
Disneyland is my second home and I love being there. Especially at Christmas and I have been
looking so forward to that trip. We were
unable to go for Christmas last year, so to skip it two years in a row is
No 'its a small world
holiday' or Small World shows on the facade.
No Carolers on Main Street,
or fancy decorations in New
No Santa's Reindeer Roundup or candy cane fudge. No special Disney Magic that you can only
find at Christmas.
So I will make this trip
count. In six days I will not be upset
to be in an ECV. I will not complain
that I can't walk. I will enjoy what we
do have. We are doing the Happiest
Haunts Tour on our first day. We come in
on a Saturday afternoon. Normally this
would be a very hard time to ride the E-ticket attractions like Space Mountain
Ghost Galaxy or Tower
of Terror. Instead we are doing the tour and it
guarantees us six rides! One of them is
Haunted Mansion Holiday, a family favorite.
We are going to the
Halloween Party. I get to see Halloween
Screams, my favorite fireworks display during the party. I get to actually trick or treat at Disneyland. The last
time we did the party at the Disneyland Resort it was at Disney's California Adventure.
This year the party is actually at Disneyland and I can't wait!
Because of my knee this will
be a slower trip, but it should not be any less fun. As usual, when I go under the tunnel for the last
time I will cry. It is tradition after all.
Our Christmas trip may be cancelled,
but we will be back to Disneyland some time soon,
of that I am confident. But I am still bummed!v
