For the past few years my husband and I have given our daughters a trip as a Christmas gift. I wrap up clues and, as they open them, they try and figure out where they might be going. Our post-Christmas trip in 2010 was to San Diego where the only theme parks that I had planned on visiting were the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, and Legoland. Within about a half an hour of unwrapping their present, however, it occurred to my very excited kids that Disneyland was in California. I had always harboured a secret desire to see Disney at Christmas time so it didn't take long for them to get me on side and we were soon discussing the possibility of taking a road trip to Disneyland.
