After breakfast, we’ll set out to spend the day our way as we choose one of the following options:
1. See the finishing touches being put on the parade floats followed by lunch and a self-guided tour at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens.
2. Spend the day at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library with a docent led tour and a sit-down served White House luncheon in the Air Force One Pavilion.
The evening is at our leisure. Free evening shuttle service to Downtown Disney! (B,L)
We start our day with a buffet breakfast before heading off to our choice of one of these attractions:
1. Spend the morning on the VIP tram tour at Warner Bros. Studios, then head off on a Hollywood’s Past and Present City Tour.
2. Enjoy a full day on Catalina Island.
The evening is filled with elegant dining, dancing to a live band, and the fun of a live “Monte Carlo” style casino. There will be hats and party favors, a drawing for exciting prizes, and a champagne toast to ring in 2019! (B,D)
Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before heading to Pasadena, where reserved premium grandstand seats await us as we watch the Rose Parade make its way down Colorado Boulevard. A souvenir program and seat cushion are included. View the animated floats, the precision of the marching bands and the equestrian teams as we become part of an event that is seen by millions around the world. After the parade, we’ll return to the hotel for a special Southern California Backyard BBQ. The remainder of the afternoon is free. In the evening, a special movie night “under the stars” is planned.
