For our family gift this year we went to Disneyland. It was Luca's first time and it was a day to remember. We did the whole trip in one day. We got to the Salt Lake Airport at 5:00am and flew standby to LAX. Luca is an awesome flyer, sleeping most of the way there and then looking out the window when he was awake. We had a bit of a blip when we got to LA; I reserved a car for us with a car seat and the company had our flight information and I verified the night before. Well when we got to LA the shuttle wasn't there when they did pick us up there wasn't a car seat, everything smelled of smoke and the driver didn't shut the doors completely. This was looking good. We got to the rental place and they didn't have a car ready for us, they were out of car seats and we waited 30 minutes and then finally Nick got a little upset and we got the answer that no car, no seat. They didn't even offer to drive us back to the airport so we started walking. Unbeknownst to us you can't walk all the way to the airport drop off. We found a pay to park lot and hitched a ride back with them. During all of this I made reservations with a reputable rental company. Finally making it back to the airport and onto the shuttle, we got the car and were on our way only an hour late.
  We didn't buy our tickets online because our printer was out of ink so we had to wait in line to buy tickets (by this point Nick was not a very happy customer) We got our tickets and Luca's little badge stating it was his first time. We rode tons of rides and had a great time. We left Disneyland after getting Luca mouse ears with his name stitched on them and drove to the airport. Boarded our flight and got home about 1:30 am the next day.  It was AWESOME!!! We will so do it again!
