I was born in 1972, which is also the year of the rat, so it was predestined that Remy would debut this year and that we would ride it a bazillion times.
DH ask-told me that I’m “not doing one of those trip report things for those people on the internet, right?” To honor his wishes, if I post mid-day, I’m in the bathroom.
Who: me (Diane), DH (Mike) and our BFF’s/cousins - Jim & Kim. hint: I’m the cute one with the pink flower ears.
When: Wed 9/15 - Sun 9/19
Our plans are more like guidelines because we keep changing them (yesterday we changed breakfast on day 3). If this trip is anything like our Jan 2020 trip, we will be pivoting on the fly. We tend to feed off each other and consider everything a challenge. In DS eating dinner in the Edison at 8pm, can we make it to EP for fireworks? Sure! As soon as fireworks end, can we hop to HS for their show? Of course! (no. the answer was no. skyliner shutdown mid-ride)
Wed 9/15: EP. We’re on the first flight of the morning. Heading straight to America for lunch because otherwise I’ll chew off my own arm having only eaten cheerios one at a time on the plane to prevent my ears from exploding. Remy preview at 1pm. Liner meet with @chloe173 at some point. nap. Le Cellier for dinner (we’ve never been)
Thu 9/16; HS. Trattora for breakfast, Oga’s at 4:40, 7:10 and 8:10. clearly we are undecided and will probably cancel two of those. or not. you never can tell with me. (ps: I didn’t know I was a hoarder until now.) Probably hop back to EP to eat around the world for dinner.
Fri 9/17: MK. Kona breakfast, Geyser Point lunch, hop to EP for Remy preview x2 at 3pm
Sat 9/18: AK, sacred spaces, hop to DS for Wine Bar George (new to us) for dinner
Sun 9/19: leave for home at a ridiculous hour (9am DME) because Southwest is a jerk.
I really will try to update this thread during the trip. I have a traveler’s notebook and mini printer with me to record on the fly. I’m just not sure if here will be my holding place for those stories until they make it into the book. Probably that would make sense, but again, you never can tell with me.
