We need a Disney fix, and are using our Disney Vacation Club points at the Disneyland Hotel for 3 nites. I had planned on bringing groceries, and cooking in room some fabulous dinners, but because we booked late, we couldn't get a one bedroom, with full kitchen, or even a studio at a DVC villa at the Grand California. I purposely have not looked at the holiday decorations online at Disneyland so we can experience that in person. This is meant as a relaxing trip, so, we are not taking the freeway to get there.
On our last trip to Anaheim, we took the back roads, and side streets for something different. What a difference! As check in is after 4 PM, we took our time to see California. We passed dairy farms, horse ranches etc., all the stuff you miss taking the freeway. And the drive time was almost the same.
Because we are driving, and have no weight restrictions on luggage, we might opt to pack our set of vintage metal Halliburton luggage, and... get ready for this, our vintage beverage luggage.
Yep, we have a Poly Perk coffeemaker w/ cups, spoons, and canisters for coffee grounds, and sugar.
I tend to dislike the one cup coffeemakers all the hotels now use, plus I like to control the strength of my morning brew. And while banned in New York, I still love my Coffeemate, and real sugar.
Of course we have an evening beverage piece of luggage....The Executain 707.
It holds a semi complete bar set, and 3 bottles of hootch, 4 cups, can opener, cocktail stirrer, and jiggers.
And yes, we will ask bell services to unload our luggage at the portico, just for the looks on their faces to see what we are unloading. It will be worth tipping.
