Any one not within a 3 hour radius of DL ever just get up and take a trip to DL on a whim? By this I mean decide randomly the night before or that day and just go for the day? I really wanna do this. Just go just because and drop anything I had to do that day.

The Goldbergs have done it from Vegas a couple of times! We are about 3 1/2 hours a way and have done it on a rare occasion! - Dreamseeker  527.3 #395 7:16PM
Yeah, we did this years ago, around Christmas time. We had nothing to do one Sunday afternoon, so we drove from San Diego to DL! - BaseballMickey_CM  7562.5 #11 7:19PM
I did this once. It was an eight hour drive 1 way. Never again. I will always stay at least one night - MTLott  88.8 #3767 7:20PM
We're 70 miles south and we've done it several times. I think JayJay walks over to DL just to use their bathrooms when she's outta TP.  - Zooter  1402.8 #126 7:25PM

We were going to do it next weekend. Just decided last night and then the boy got laid off today. So no more trip. :-( we are about 8 hrs away - Miranda  269.9 #1165 7:31PM
Haha, did this last night! I had school today but decided not to go & head to DL instead! I just HAD to visit the park. All these pictures of HalloweenTime looked sooooo cool! I needed to see it for myself! Lol! Btwn: I live 20 min away from the park. - kyoto_sparkle  150.2 #2712 8:39PM
In Feb 2008 I came home from work, grabbed everyones lanyards and told them to pack some clothes, we are leaving for DL in a hour! We live six hours away. - connielu  686.5 #289 8:47PM
We stayed two days, to far away for a day trip - connielu  686.5 #289 9:10PM
When we had our APs we used to decide on a Wed or Thurs to go to DL for the weekend. Good times!! - MarieC  265.5 #1203 9:14PM
Oh! And we're 5 hours away! - MarieC  265.5 #1203 9:14PM
In April 2008, our friends called us and asked if we wanted to go, of course I begged my hubby and he said ok, we left Utah 3 hours later at 8:30 pm and drove thru the night, we were all so tired but it was worth it then, I prefer to fly, my daughter gets car sick and puked next to our friends in our car - dizzylandjunky  224.9 #1672 9:16PM
Hahah we do this and we're 5 hours away!! - michelledork  696.2 #280 9:17PM
The last time I tried to do something like that it turned in to a 4 day trip. - Jaimz  651.4 #308 9:19PM
just did it today - JayPeeBee  135.7 #2955 9:20PM
Oh goodness, yes. As much as possible. Although, our next trip on Nov 2 has been scheduled for months, we have already snuck in a couple of random visits. - HiddenMickeys  220.1 #1730 10:38PM
Hmmm...you all are inspiring me to do this as soon as possible! - K_hungie  41.9 #5125 11:01PM
Yeah! My friend and I had just settled into our dorms at SFSU and decided we needed one last trip to Disneyland before school started-we hopped on a plane from SFO to John Wayne within the hour. Great adventure :) - kayrassaCM  25.7 #6436 6:37AM
I live 30 minutes from Dland there is not a lot of planning involved. Sometimes I think - I have nothing to do I am going to go right now - LittleLady23  5.7 #16848 6:42AM
Do it! - Disneybird  172.9 #2357 6:44AM
My friends and I used to do it constantly years ago....just wake up and say....I wanna to to Disneyland....make some calls and within an hour we would be on our way....we still do that, just not as often as we used to....were the DL Dashers lol - AuzRoxUrSox  975.3 #193 6:49AM
We live in Vegas too and for the last weekend of the ELP decided as we were driving down Blue Diamond at 10 am to head home pack up and go to DL to see it before it left. We were there by 2.  - JGoldy  234.1 #1553 6:57AM
