I think I'm FINALLY going to make it to CA this summer (or fall)! YIPPPEEEE! That will be 3 parks under my belt (so to speak). I don't see Tokyo or Hong Kong in the near future Anyway since I've never been to the LA area I need some hints and tips! Areas to stay (thinking about DL hotel but not sure yet). Areas to avoid? Recommended things to do besides DL? (we'll have a 3.5 yr old with us) We'd probably be there about 5 non flying days. One thing I do want to do is see the Pacific. Any particular beach area to go to? Car? For people who drive in fairly normal places is this a good idea? We like our freedom when we go places but would we be nuts to try it the first time there? (then again we drove in England but never ever ever again)!!!! Anything else you can think of? THANKS!!!!
