Vegas, Disneyland & Alaska May 2016

Wow when did that happen?!?!

What started out as a nice simple cruise to see the Northern Lights with some friends, turned into an epic adventure!

So, what's going to be happening?

Well!

We plan to fly out on 14th May, 2016, from a random London airport to Las Vegas, stay three nights on the strip, fly from Vegas to LA 17th May straight to Disneyland for 3/4 nights. Flying from LA to Vancouver, with at least a one night overnight stay in Vancouver before embarking on the Celebrity Infinity in a concierge cabin with my best friend and her husband to sail for 7 nights through Alaska!

Sorry for the lack of pictures need to get photobucket up and running again.

So far I've tentatively decided on the Hilton Aneheim for us to stay if we can't find DVC points for VGC, and we have started looking at Vegas hotels but man thats a confusing pasttime!

Will update when I know more...

DID I MENTION I'M EXCITED?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Yay for mini updates!

So I think I may have found a DVC renter for our 4 nights in a studio at Villas Grand Californian! I feel I'm paying slightly over the odds at $17 a night, but she has a great reputation, amazing references, and I can pay in installments which suits me down to the ground!

We are having a photoshoot with a lovely photographer at Disneyland Park on Thursday 20th May, and will be following that with dinner at the Napa Rose Chefs Counter!

We are no closer to a hotel decision for Vegas - we want to stay in one of the big name ones as we feel this will be our one and only trip... I don't know why I'm struggling with this normally I'm quick and easy for choices but this one is killing me!

Flights will be released in June so excited to get those booked, will have a lot of pricing up to do as currently we have a return flight from London to Vancouver included with our cruise price, but they are charging us 1400 each... um no thank you! I'm hoping to to get all our flights for 1k each, so that would be from:
London - Vegas
Vegas - LA
LA - Vancouver
Vancouver - London

Based on 2015 pricing that I started at the beginning of the year this seems achievable!

Next up, I need to start planning our Disney days in LA, decide on food and which parks on which day, whilst waiting to find out what shore excursions will be offered on our cruise
