Fri, 3 Apr 2015 22:27:52 EST Hi everyone! I am new to Sparkpeople. :-) I am trying to lose 30lbs or so, I have already lost 40 lbs so far. I am a huge a Disney fan and my boyfriend and I are headed to Disney world in November. No one understands my obsession with Disney, so maybe the members of this team will understand my passion for Disney! <em>30</em> Thu, 19 Mar 2015 14:28:29 EST &#128157; February Birthdays &#128157; <em>383</em> <em>26</em> <em>409</em> <em>144</em> <em>44</em> <em>144</em> <em>383</em> <em>26</em> <em>409</em> <em>144</em> <em>44</em> <em>144</em> <BR> <BR> CRAZYFORFOOD 4-Feb <BR> BECKI.2032 12-Feb <BR> CLANG18 12-Feb <BR> KBASNETT 17 Feb <BR> TINKERBELL200 18-Feb <BR> SHELLYBABE2 22-Feb <BR> GINGERWISH 23-Feb <BR> <BR> <em>383</em> <em>26</em> <em>409</em> <em>144</em> <em>44</em> <em>144</em> <em>383</em> <em>26</em> ...

The challenge is simple starting on Oct 1 thru to Oct 31 we are to track daily our amount of walking we have done each day, then they will total all the people here at our VA against other VA's. <BR> <BR> So I thought why not see if anyone is interested in posting daily how many MINUTES you walked and then total at the end of the month to see...

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 16:27:41 EST Not new to SP, but starting again Hello Disney fans!! <BR> <BR> My name is Kristina and I am starting over again. I lost 60 lbs, from diet alone back in 2008 when my husband did his last deployment for the Navy. Since then, I've gained almost all of it back, but I have also had two more kids (twins) that were born Dec 2009. My oldest is 11 yrs old and was diagnosed with autism back in 2006. I am a stay-at-home mom, but I was prior service in the Navy for 8.5 yrs, which is where I met my husband. We are currently stationed in...

I don't know who was more excited, my 9 year old daughter or me! Of course, we had to photograph the opening of the box. And then we had to try the bands on. They are really comfortable on your wrist. They are now safely ensconced in their box until the time arrives on Aug. 5th to put them on for our trip.

We've been to WDW 3 times so far and I realize that I need to be in better shape to be able to enjoy myself more and keep up with my son. I hate to say it, but while being "Pooh" sized sounds cute it makes it more difficult to get in and out of some rides like RNRC. <BR> <BR> I hope I can pick up some of your tips for eating healthier while at the World....

I look forward to starting my weight loss journey with fellow Disney lovers. I am 23 and I have been a fan of all things disney my whole life. I was born and raised in California and priviledged enough to bi-annually visit Disneyland throughout my childhood. As an adult, the trips have become less frequent, but I am planning a trip next month! <BR> <BR> Wed, 23 Oct 2013 12:07:17 EST &#9758;Happy Birthday to Yoouuuu&#9756; <em>383</em> <em>236</em> <em>44</em> <em>422</em> <em>410</em> <em>423</em> <em>409</em> <em>431</em> <em>144</em> <em>383</em> <em>236</em> <em>44</em> <em>422</em> <em>410</em> <em>423</em> <em>409</em> <em>431</em> <em>144</em> <BR> <BR> ANGEL31DOLPHIN 6-Oct <BR> BATTLESTUDENT 6-Oct <BR> MOMMYFOSTEJ 6-Oct <BR> KMREIN 7-Oct <BR> VIOLETTE1 8-Oct <BR> GONNABEHALFOFME 10-Oct <BR> HOLLY17036 11-Oct <BR> CLOUDYWING 11-Oct <BR> MCINTYR...

Sun, 1 Sep 2013 14:40:07 EST Disney Bahama Cruise Count down - Sept 11 I'm on the count down to our WDW and Disney Cruise vacation. I am very excited about this vacation. This is my first vacation with my boyfriend. He has never been to WDW or even FL. I am so excited that he can see why I love it so much. We are only spending 1 day at WDW. Then taking a 3 day Bahama Cruise. After the cruise we are spending 1 day in Orlando. He may have to force me on the plane to get me to come home. Wed, 28 Aug 2013 19:09:10 EST I'm New (to the team, not to Disney) Hey all! <BR> I just joined this team because I’m planning a trip to Disney World in October with my sister. This will be our 4th trip to Disney World (we’ve also been to Disneyland twice, most recently in December 2012). <BR> <BR> We’re going for 3 days, 3 nights the second week of October, staying at Art of Animation resort.

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 21:57:52 EST Getting ready for a trip Hi all, <BR> I am getting ready for a trip to WDW and I'm wondering if there are walking maps on Spark anywhere for tracking fitness in the parks or at the resorts. If there isn't then I will probably just track a slow walk for everything but it would be great if I could actually get the mileage somewhere. <BR> <BR> Does anyone have a "Hollywood Studios" walk saved in the fitness maps etc? <BR> <BR> Thanks!

Thu, 8 Aug 2013 08:17:20 EST Disappointment I just seen the schedule for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween. They are having it basically 2 days a week in Sept. We will be there Sept 11. They are having it Sept 10th. We missed Mickey's Very Merry Christmas in 2011 because the person who booked our trip talked me out of purchasing the tickets and told me I could purchase them when I arrived. Alas one day I will get to attend a special event. I'm still going to have fun next month when we are there. Sun, 4 Aug 2013 10:03:13 EST WDW hotels I was pricing hotels online last week for our September trip. I found priceline and expedia offers WDW resort hotels for significantly less than WDW's site. I called WDW and they verified this. If you're just looking for a hotel (and not a package deal), check out priceline or expedia before purchasing through WDW's website. Sun, 21 Jul 2013 17:30:03 EST Hi, I'm new and planning a trip to DL in Dec. I'm so psyched to have found Disney here on SP. I've planned our first trip to Disneyland for December and can't wait. We go to WDW all the time and feel like I know it like the back of my hand but this will be brand new, I'm so excited. If anyone has any pointers, favorite restaurants or any other info I'd appreciate it. We're staying at Paradise Pier. <BR> <BR> Thanks a bunch, <BR> Sharon in NC Sat, 20 Jul 2013 22:59:31 EST Disney Bahama Cruise I am very excited to share that my BF and I are going on Disney Bahama Cruise in September. I am hoping that since it is mid September that there won't be tons of children since they should be back in school. We are also going to Atlantis while on our cruise. And I also booked a snorkelling excursion. This is our first cruise so we just planned for 3 days. We are also spending one day at Disney World before the cruise and one day in Orlando after the cruise. I want my BF to see why I love FL ... Fri, 19 Jul 2013 13:45:12 EST Hello!

He's from New Jersey, I'm from Wisconsin and most of my family is either in Wisconsin or in Missouri. So either way a lot of people are goingt o be forced to travel.

Tue, 3 Jul 2012 19:24:15 EST July 2012 Challenge Hi All <BR> <BR> I've been really bad about logging food and actually losing weight over the past few months. I guess I lost my umpf or something. I haven't done too badly even though I haven't been recording everything when I should and I now weigh more than I did this time last year. My husband has gone to work overseas, again, and has been gone 4 weeks and has another 4 to go before he gets back so I thought I'd put together a 4 week challenge for July. <BR> <BR> It is a "Baby Steps" cha...

My new job takes me out to San Fran, and I was thinking with the Cars additions to California Adventure, I'd like to take the kids out there. I have only been there twice in my life. Once when I was 3, and again about 7 years ago as a solo day trip. <BR> <BR> What is their busy season(s)? IE, if I could get the kids out there June 17th-ish, would it be waaaaay too crowded? <BR> <BR> Thoughts? <BR> <BR> Jess Tue, 5 Jun 2012 22:24:38 EST Honeymoon to Disney help Okay, my son and his fiancee are now planning on Disney as their honeymoon? do any of you get advance notice of specials coming up? They plan on getting married Jan. 5 so it should not be hard to get reservations but would love for them to do the meal plan, etc while there is they can get a great deal. Also, please let me know what websites they should visit to get ideas or info for this. Tue, 5 Jun 2012 09:59:14 EST NEWBIE Hi my name is Katie <BR> <BR> I love anything to do with Disney.

At 40, I still love it as much as I did when I was a child and love seeing the magic through the eyes of my two children. I have been on SP for a few years now and reached my goal last year. My new goal is to keep getting stronger through running--I really need to add weight training to my routine this year as well. My goal is to run the Disney half marathon in January of 2013 with my husband and we are hoping ... Mon, 30 Jan 2012 10:21:43 EST Disney MOTIVATES me!!! I don't know why planning a trip to WDW always motivates me to really focus on my health, but it does!! Guess I need to always have a trip planned so that I stick with it!! (If only I could do that). Planning on going to WDW in May. Began really watching my food intake, logging in to SP every day, tracking all my food and liquid (specifically WATER) intake, and doing my measurements!! I am doing well. Since January 1 I have lost 13 pounds and 2 inches from my hips (waist remains the sam...

So, I had a couple of friends and my 17 yo daughter coming to visit for New Year ’s Eve. Since none of them had ever been to Disney I thought it would be a great idea to put together the New Year’s Eve celebration and the happiest place on earth. Well, it was not. <BR> We spent the 30th at Magic Kingdom and the 31st at Epcot. They clearly seriously overbooked the parks. There was no space AT All.

Well, we just got back from Disney World and this game is so accurate to the parks, characters, rides, and disney movies that it's unbelievable!

Thu, 1 Dec 2011 23:02:38 EST Reflections I know we haven't reached the end of the year yet but I thought it might be a good idea to look back at our goals from the beginning of the year and see if we have done as badly, or as good, as we think. The reason I put "badly" first is that so many of the blogs that we write through the year are about the goals that we didn't meet. What about the ones that we did? <BR> <BR> Having done so badly in the first 3 weeks of the November/December challenge (which I set!), I decided to have a loo...

Now I am almost there and I am trying to come up with a new Disney goal. Just wondering if anyone else has any goals related to Disney?

We were at the parks earlier this year, and although we had a good time I would like to have had more energy and stamina. Sun, 17 Jul 2011 18:01:43 EST Getting ready for Disney I love Disney. I try to go once a year, but February was the first time I was able to get back in 2 years. It was rough! 4 whirlwind days and I was exhausted and I think I actually gained weight.

My husband and I have been to WDW 21 times and we've also enjoyed the parks in California and Paris.

Hello everyone! My name is Stephanie and I'm a huge Disney World fan! I'm starting my journey to lose 150 pounds and return to Disney World in December 2012 a happier, healthier version of myself. Our last trip there (a couple of years ago) was wonderful and magical, but it could have been SO much better without having to carry this weight around. I can't wait to go back and do the things I wasn't able to do because of my weight (like squeezing into the smaller rides). <BR> <BR> I look for... Thu, 30 Jun 2011 00:45:33 EST Saying Hello I am new to this and very happy to find other Disney lovers here. Our next trip to the World is in 2 months and I'm hoping to be in better shape for walking the parks by then. <em>41</em> Wed, 22 Jun 2011 07:56:56 EST Hello :D Love Disney, just got back actually from our annual trip!

I haven't bought tickets for that yet. <BR> <BR> We will be going to all four parks. I've already paid for the Backstage Magic tour which I am really looking forward to. I've wanted to see those Utilidors since I saw "Wonderful World of Disney" and they showed the underground corridors. We are also taking the Segway tour of Epcot, and i...

Tue, 7 Jun 2011 09:44:12 EST Strange question - mobile phones This may seem like a strange question but I'm going to ask it anyway. When we go to WDW I used to take a pay as you go mobile phone which I use in the UK and load it with about £20 before we left so that I could text my DH if we got separated. This time, however, I have a contract phone and don't really want to add the cost of texting in the US to my usual contract payments. <BR> <BR> So, my question is this: is it possible to buy a pay as you go phone in the US without being a resident? ... Thu, 2 Jun 2011 05:11:03 EST Hello from NJ! Hi all, <BR> <BR> I'm relatively new to Spark People and am a Disney freak. My family and I drive down from Jersey every other year.

I've been back for a brief stint a few times but nothing to speak of. Now I'm back hopefully for good. I had joined this team back when I first joined SP, but was never active.

My name is Judy and I am definitely a Disney fan! My very first time to Disneyland was with my then boyfriend, now my husband in August of 1994.

He had tried to get them to allow him to wear a Goofy costume (his fave character at the time) but unfortunately they had to say no due to crowd control. We have had season passes several times, including now and we try to get down there as often...

I haven't been to Disney World since August 2005 (I worked there at the time) and boy do I miss it. <BR> My trip is planned for 9/30-10-6, I've never been down there during that time of year.

My SparkPeople page says I've been a member since (I think)2007, however, I have not been around at all lately. But I'm back! I have a Disney World trip planned for May 2011 and my goal is simple. I want my arms to look better in my tank tops and I want to be able to tag myself in photos that I want to share on Facebook. (LOL) I'm looking forward to you motivating me.

Hi, my name is Shelli. I'm a total Disney fan, but in need of a body overhaul. I have a Land/Cruise trip planned for May 2011. Wed, 25 Aug 2010 09:36:21 EST Hi from the Philly burbs Hi!!! I am a HUGE Disney fan...movies, parks, music, you name it. I have to admit, my biggest concern that last two trips is how my being out of shape (read - nice way to say fat) would effect the trips. It hasn't, but with only 3 years until the big 4-0 I would really like to work on celebrating that birthday in the bubble with my health in check. Fri, 20 Aug 2010 21:40:31 EST Booked! So excited. Booked for next year. We've started a Disney only savings account to pay for the trip and we already got a nice chunk o change in it. We'll be staying at French Quarter and since we'll be going in December, we'll get to see all the resorts & parks as they gear up for the holiday. I'm so excited! Let the countdown begin. Will be in Disney in exactly 472 days. Sun, 15 Aug 2010 11:33:33 EST Get me to something Disney! Quick! Here's a game I saw on's forums that I thought would be fun. It is a word association game with a Disney twist. <BR> <BR> I will start off with a word and then the next poster will link it to another word like we do in the Chain Reaction game. The idea is to get it to "something Disney"...whether it be a Disney ride, attraction, resort, restaurant, movie or whatever Disney you can link it to! The "something Disney" connection must include the last word posted by the previou... Wed, 11 Aug 2010 22:43:51 EST Hello! I have been on SP for a little over a week and thanks to someone commenting on my blog, I found this page. I LOVE Disney and am happy to meet others who love the house of mouse. I spent part of my childhood around Disneyland so think that is where my love came from. And now I have introduced my family to everything Disney. It really IS the happiest place! Look forward to talking with you all. TTFN! <BR> <BR> Mary Mon, 9 Aug 2010 18:57:54 EST Reservations made My reservations are made for May 2011. Now comes the hard part, the wait. Of course I still have to finish saving the money to pay for the trip, so here I am hoping nothing goes wrong this time. <BR> <BR> Mon, 9 Aug 2010 16:25:32 EST Birthday at Disney! <em>44</em> <BR> <em>236</em> <BR> <BR> We are taking our two grand daughters to Disney in a couple of weeks and one of them has a birthday while we <BR> are there.

Wed, 30 Jun 2010 22:10:03 EST Fitness Log As I (and I'm sure others of you are too) am training for a 10km run, I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where we can post our intended and actual training. As I know that not everyone will be training for a specific event, I thought I would call it the "Fitness Log" so that we can all put in what exercise we plan to do during the week and then log what we actually did. This is more specific than the exercise minute goal which we have in the challenges. <BR> <BR> For example...

I am 60 years old, have a 40 year old daughter and 10 year old twin granddaughters. My first trip to Disneyland was when my daughter was 2 ½ years old. I fell in love with it immediately. Since I live in Washington State I don’t get to visit Mickey as often as I would like. I do go at least once a year, at first with my daughter and now with my daughter and granddaughters. Every once in awhile we take Papa and Dad but most of... Fri, 18 Jun 2010 03:33:07 EST How do you save???

Sat, 12 Jun 2010 10:34:06 EST Coupon Codes? Last week, I received a flier from Disney with a code on it. It said that if I called them with the code, I can receive 40% off all WDW room rates for most of 2010. <BR> <BR> Is this one of the elusive coupon codes that I've heard about? Has anyone else ever received a coupon code from Disney? If I can't use it this year, will I get another code someday, or will Disney give up on me completely?

I have decided to get back to reading labels more closely and not getting anything with high fructose corn syrup in it. Seems I have gotten lax on keeping that out of our diet and I remember I lose better when HFCS is less in our daily consumption. <BR> <BR> A long way to ask, do...

I have put together another "back to basics" challenge similar to a 10 week one I did before Christmas to start on Sunday 2 May and finish on Saturday 26 June. As there aren't many steps there are new challenges up to and including week 6 to be continued to week 8. Weeks 7 and 8 will be "one off" challenges which you can accept, or not.

Wed, 21 Apr 2010 08:39:20 EST Introducing.... myself to this team. My name is Ilene and I'm a disneyholic. I have been trying to get back on track. I've been a member of spark people for some time but just found this group. Since disney is my greatest motivator I guess it just made sense to join this group. Currently I'm having a disney withdrawal as my husband is unemployed and we have no existing ressies for the first time since I can't remember when. We are DVC members since 2002 and have many land and sea trips under out belt includi... Sun, 18 Apr 2010 17:37:33 EST Question...... I just finished a weight loss challenge at work and am going to do my own personal challenge. Now the thing is that the scale we used in the challenge always weighed me 2 lbs lighter than my scale at home. Both are digital to. My question is Do I from now on weigh in 2 lbs heavier and have an extra to lbs to lose in my personal challenge? Because My weight at the end of the work challenge was 192 but at home I'm 194 Help please LOL. Wed, 7 Apr 2010 08:59:50 EST April Challenge I know I'm late setting a challenge for April but as there are 30 days, starting today will mean that we can complete 4 weeks. So, here we go: <BR> <BR> Fitness - 20/20 challenge - try to get in at least 20 workouts of at least 20 minutes. This will average out at 5 workouts per week and includes cardio and strength training workouts. <BR> <BR> Nutrition - log all your food intake every day <BR> <BR> April Showers - Drink at least 8 cups of water every day. <BR> <BR> Sat, 3 Apr 2010 05:46:18 EST ~~Disney April Birthdays...No Foolin'!~~ <em>409</em> <em>410</em> <em>144</em> <em>44</em> <BR> <BR> NOSMOHT 5-Apr <BR> ASHLEY41084 10-Apr <BR> GINA7249 11-Apr <BR> MARTIAN767 11-Apr <BR> CMULL328 13-Apr <BR> BKMNURSING 14-Apr <BR> LORI777 14-Apr <BR> THOMSON08 20-Apr <BR> VIRTUALREBA02 23-Apr <BR> SCRAPBOOKER4U 28-Apr <BR> THEWINEDIVA 30-Apr <BR> <BR> <em>409</em> <em>410</em> <em>144</em> <em>44</em> Fri, 2 Apr 2010 20:46:39 EST New Challenge?

I'm looking to set up a new challenge to start after Easter (probably Monday) but would like some feedback about what you would like before I set it. <BR> <BR> Would you like a Baby Steps Challenge as I have done previously where you add a new "change" each week or would you like a challenge which sets out what you need to aim for for the whole month? <BR> <BR> Any ideas of what you want to track or aim for would be good too. Thu, 1 Apr 2010 05:27:36 EST Hey Heyo guys, I'm new to spark teams! Wel lto sparkpeople in general but still, any help would be greatly appreciated. Tue, 30 Mar 2010 14:07:48 EST New to this group.... Hi i'm new to this group and am a disney lover well that and LOVE LOVE Eeyore. I am here to lose weight and get in shape. I saw this group and was happy. I am going to be going to Disney in early May. I'm 41 yrs old and a kid at heart. I am so excited about my trip and want to lose a bit more before my trip. Fri, 26 Mar 2010 13:26:45 EST Is this a realistic goal (5k) Hi <BR> I know it's a total newbie question but I thought if anyone would know, someone here would :) <BR> <BR> When I decided to re-lose the weight I've re-gained (over and over), I thought having a big goal might keep me more motivated and more eager to stay on track, and I thought trying to get in good enough shape and training to run a 5k at WDW might be the thing to keep me going. <BR> <BR> But then after mentioning it to a couple of family members and getting not all too enthusiastic ... Thu, 25 Mar 2010 08:09:18 EST New to spark and team Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Gayle I am a 34 SAHM to to wonderful kids. Also we are a big time Disney Family. We go at least once a year and my husband and myself got married in WDW. I have joined spark people because I want to make a change in how I feel about myself and my health. I am currently 236 and looking to lose 91 lbs So it will be a journey. However I am staying positive and this site seems to be a great thing. Tue, 23 Mar 2010 13:10:28 EST New to team and Spark Hi :) <BR> <BR> I am new to Spark People, and was thrilled when I came across this group to join ~ I love Disney :) I was wondering if I'd be able to stick to a diet/exercise plan, esp. going it alone, so seeing those with a common interest was a huge pick-me-up :) <BR> <BR> My goal is to lose 22-25 pounds, and actually keep it off this time. I've lost the same weight over and over, my downfall is keeping it off and getting re-motivated once I begin to re-lose the weight again. Fri, 19 Mar 2010 16:38:23 EST Disneyland trip tomorrow! I am heading up to Disneyland tomorrow for the first time in a year! I have missed it so much! But I got my tax refund and was able to get the So Cal annual pass for this year so I'll be able to get my Disney fix on a regular basis again. <em>334</em> Its the one thing I had to give up since I was laid off that I've really missed! <BR> <BR> Mon, 8 Mar 2010 20:23:42 EST New to the team Hello Disney Lovers! <BR> <BR> Greatings from a Disney nut from Colorado.

Mon, 22 Feb 2010 16:39:07 EST Give a Day get a Day So I had to post this because I'm sure all of you have seen the commercials for Disney's Give a Day Get a Day here in the US. Outsiders can actually participate too but you have to give a day in the US. Anyway you go the Disney website and pretty much find a place to volunteer in your area. You have to sign up.

Fri, 19 Feb 2010 12:34:24 EST Walking Goal Yesterday I set a goal of walking 5,000 steps and strapped on the old pedometer for the first time in a long time. I met my goal and more with a total of 5,665 steps. Today I am increasing my goal to 6,000 steps. With so much snow outside, it is only inside walking for me for now. <BR> <BR> However, once we thaw, I will be at a local park with a new pedometer, it does not seem to work in the house, but works outside just fine.

I'm so sorry I made an introduction a couple of weeks ago and then disappeared. I fell off the wagon pretty bad, but I'm working very hard at getting back on track now. I've been busy writing and promoting the past couple of weeks, and I kind of 'zone out', as my husband would call it. LOL When I do that, I don't pay as much attention to what I'm eating. *hangs head in shame* <BR> <BR> I hope you'll have me back in the group. I'm still planning on going back to Disney in the spring of 2011,... Thu, 4 Feb 2010 23:29:33 EST Have a magical day! Hello All: <BR> <BR> I love Disney, I'm overweight, I need to lead a healthier lifestyle. I think I am in the right place. I am recently back on SP and have been doing well. I need to change things so that I can be a healthy dad for my two girls (3 & 10). We try to get to DisneyWorld every year if we can and when I am in shape the trip is much more fun. I look forward to chatting with everyone on this team. Thu, 4 Feb 2010 19:39:05 EST Disney by the Week - 2/3/10 Disney is always fun when the temperatures are warm and it is dry. What happens when it is cold and rainy? How do you spend you time in Disney when that happens? Wed, 3 Feb 2010 10:29:12 EST Going to Disneyworld in September. My current goal is to get down to my lightest weight in 20 years before my trip to Disney. Secondarily this should make all the walking a little easier. I stay in the tree houses this trip. <BR> <BR> Is anyone else going in September ? <BR> <BR> Also what do you do in preparation for a trip to Disney ? <BR> <BR> I like to listen to Disney podcasts my favorite is "Inside the Magic".

I love to get off and roam the shops and see the views from the common areas. Once I went with friends and we stopped at each hotel and had a drink before moving on. It was so much fun and very relaxing! Wed, 27 Jan 2010 07:00:14 EST Of course there is a Disney Team! I'm new to Spark and am loving all of the food related teams I've joined. Today I thought, "Hey!

Sun, 24 Jan 2010 02:43:55 EST Fish Wish I am looking to add more lean protein sources to my diet and want to add fish once a week as one of my February goals. The problem is I'm not a big fish fan. What are some of your favorites? I'm looking for ones with a milder (less fishy) taste. Also what are your favorite cooking methods (not recipes so much)? I tend to grill or bake most of my stuff. I already love most shell fish and eat shrimp regularly. <BR> <BR> Thanks! Sat, 23 Jan 2010 18:47:55 EST Disney by the week - 1/20/10 What is your favorite season to visit WDW and why? <BR> <BR> My favorite would have to be winter.

I haven't been since I was in college and was looking for some advice. <BR> <BR> Is it possible to do Disneyland and California Adventure in two days? It would just be my DH and I.
