Butterlina's Stroller Hack: You'll need a clear or slightly frosted plastic bag. A gallon ziploc® will do just fine. Or them bags that a scary bouffant cotton candy thingy comes in. Next a diaper. Now go find some root beer or a brownish tinted beverage. Put the diaper in the bag. Pour the beverage on the diaper. Now tie the bag to the stroller handle somehow. In a highly visibl  More...

We once had a stroller taken while at Disneyland. We went about our day and while waiting for the parade a family walked by with our stroller! Luckily I slipped my business card in the handle. When we approached the parents and told them they kindly explained they found it and didn't realize out belong to anyone. I told the CM about the card and the family promptly gave it back.  - fvbmermaid  235.5 #1482 3:08PM

For those of you in the parks today, please remember this #tip... Any quick service restaurant will give you free cups of water. Just ask for a cup or they might want to charge you for a bottle.

And if you ask nicely, they'll give you a large cup!  - thatgirljenn  1607.2 #98 8:34AM
Flo's always gives a 16 oz cup I've discovered. But you're right- asking nicely will get a bigger cup too. - LilSterner  5091.5 #21 8:52AM
If you go to Cocina Cucamonga, they'll give you the largest cup they have which is 32 oz I believe. That's my go to place when in DCA 👍 - thatgirljenn  1607.2 #98 9:11AM
That's awesome. Today Flo's has 8 oz cups ready to hand out! - LilSterner  5091.5 #21 11:51AM
Please be careful everyone--looks like it's going to be very hot!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  602.5 #322 8:46AM
And you can refill your water bottles anywhere they have fountain soda!  (Boardwalk Pasta and Pizza, Plaza Inn, and Rancho del Zocalo all come to mind.)  If you feel like water isn't enough, replenish your electrolytes with a powerade! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2412.0 #54 1:16PM

#BudgetTrip #WeCanDoIt #tips For those who already know that we attempted to go on this trip on a huge budget. I went with the family for three days and then I continued my journey with another MWer and her family. The husbands drove up north to the real world while we were stuck in Disneyland for another 4 days. We did our best not to spend any money. We did pretty good. So here is what worked  More...

Also make sure when you book a hotel that you have stayed there or someone has because it's the worst if you arrive and it's so gross you won't stay there. I lost $90.00 for canceling my room after I stepped in. I rebooked on Priceline for another awesome hotel.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1031.1 #170 1:29PM
Great advice.  We usually go on a budget too.  Going on a budget is better than not going at all.   - Hesatalkintome  29.0 #5788 1:36PM
Exactly👍 - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1031.1 #170 1:41PM
Great tips. Thanks.  - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  483.8 #415 3:53PM
From one MWer to another - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1031.1 #170 4:52PM
Gets tricky when you're flying from overseas though. We don't want to spend out first day there shopping for groceries but we do go get some pallets of water and drinks instead of buying it in the parks.  - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  483.8 #415 4:55PM
We also buy some boxes of cereal and plastic bowls and spoons.  - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  483.8 #415 4:56PM
Every time our family of 4 eats at a restaurant, it's around $100. So, I take donuts and pop tarts for breakfast, lots of snacks, and we eat one big meal at a restaurant a day. I also take the pb and j incrustables to eat around lunch time. - minniemonika  174.0 #0 7:00AM

#TIPS I'm posting this as a reminder since the next few days are going to be HOT! Quick service restaurants will give you a free cup of ice water if you ask. And if you ask nicely they will be more willing to give you a bigger cup, too. There's also a water spigot in the Rancho del Zocalo dining area (where they keep the hot sauces) that has cold filtered water if you need to fill up water bottl  More...

Thanks!  I did not know about the spigot! - AZDisney  610.4 #315 9:29AM
Baby Care Center also has cold filtered water fountain. You do NOT need to have a child to go in there and refill your water bottle. - DLKenCA  2492.8 #51 9:30AM
thats because they consider you to be a big baby - pikarich  4700.7 #24 9:52AM

The Christmas Fantasy Parade would be cancelled in favor of Mickey's Christmas Cavalcade. It is also possible that Fantasmic could be cancelled due to the rain and wet stage. Fireworks wouldn't be cancelled unless it's raining too  More...

I used to rarely visit Toontown; but now that I bring my nephew it is such a fun place to go. Here's a #tip- the best time to visit is when it first opens (1 hour after park opening) as it's not very busy at all. You can usually see Mickey and Minnie within a couple of minutes and the roller coaster is a walk-on or close to it.

I love the colors in the picture! - leopardditz2000  789.6 #222 11:21AM

It's a normal busy summer day. But seems busier than it was yesterday. I'm not sure what the security line looks like now as I walked out through the Grand. But lines to get in the parks were pretty long earlier. If check the wait times closer to when you want to go to gauge it and also look at fastpass return times as that will also give you an idea. - LilSterner  5091.5 #21 12:27PM
