Butterlina's Stroller Hack: You'll need a clear or slightly frosted plastic bag. A gallon ziplocยฎ will do just fine. Or them bags that a scary bouffant cotton candy thingy comes in. Next a diaper.

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.ย  - fvbmermaid  237.8 #1590 3:08PM

Hey kids! This is how you do NOT enter wait times. DO walk up to the actual attraction, see the wait time there, enter the time. Or, wait in queue and time it, then enter the time. You can help out the app and gain points for being a good lil MWer. #tipsfromchurro

#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}  1195.9 #163 1:29PM

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  539.1 #425 4:55PM
We also buy some boxes of cereal and plastic bowls and spoons.  - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  539.1 #425 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  238.1 #0 7:00AM

#TIPS- If you have a Disney Visa card, everyday in DCA there is a private character meet 'n' greet. The line is relatively short so the characters have time to play around a bit.

Each day the time is a bit different but it starts soon after opening and is located to the right of Monster's Inc by the Mad T Party air hockey   More...

I was explicity told that I could only get my Chase pic printed last week (all my pics were on the same Photopass).

The wording on the back of the photo voucher has changed--it used to be good for any photo with a character, but the wording now says that it's for a photo from the meet and greet; the CM let me pick another picture a couple of weeks ago though, because my niece was crying in the Chase photos. - fletheartsdisney  1113.7 #181 11:04PM
