I've noticed a lot of NorCal and bay area MWers go to Disneyland really frequently, like more than once a month. Even if you have APs there is still the expense of a place to stay and fuel. Do you all just make it a priority in your budget? I would love to go that often too but seems like there are always other expenses that get in the way.

I'm with you Dlcrazy. We go about once a year...if I'm lucky twice! It's not a small expense for a family of four with ticket prices, hotel, food, gas. And it's hard to convince my hubs to go more often. He doesn't share my affinity for going to DL and is always saying we should show our kids more of the world than just DL when we have the chance to go on a vacation. I would love to show my kids everything, but maybe when they're a bit older and can appreciate seeing a historical site, etc. Right now (at ages 4 and almost 2) DL is the perfect trip. My inlaws are moving to LA this summer though, so maybe going won't be such a battle with the hubs since we'll already be down there to visit Grandma and Grandpa several times a year! I feel you though! - jedimommy  162.1 #2608 5:38AM
Dlcrazy I live up near Pismo Beach(about 3 and a half hours from Anaheim) We are AP holders and go about every 6 weeks. Saving for a trip is in my budget each and every week. There are also ways to save while we are down there too. - MissyluvsDisneyland  362.0 #677 5:42AM
Hi Dlcrazy! We live in NorCal and are APs! We go about every other month and are ALL about budgeting! Couple ways to save $$$ is if you don't really care what hotel you stay in Priceline is a great option. If you search it in the Lounge Jaimz has some great tips! Also the Hojo has great prices for AP members that rum as low as $59. Also another way we save $$$ is we bring a TON of snacks to eat at the park! That way we aren't constant eating at the park, or leave the park for lunch but stay for dinner! My girls only get about $10 ea for spending money (usually for a pin or a vinyl). A lot of MW have other great tips again just search it in the lounge! Hope this helps a little! - WickedWench  579.9 #379 5:48AM
I'd love to go Monthly. I just save what I can and try to go every 3 months if possible. - NingyMouse  378.4 #636 5:57AM
I go about every 3-4 months. My family thinks we are crazy. Se do similar thing to WW - we usually stay 3 days and will only eat in the park once a day. We bring lots of snacks and some stuff for breakfast and lunch. You can get hotels pretty cheap and with a family of 4 we only need one room. Our car is pretty good on gas and it takes less than 1 tank ($55 with current prices) to get there. - SnowW13  222.6 #1774 6:04AM
I live up north 3 1/2 hours away in death valley and we go once a month, sometimes we don't go out and eat out as much so we can save enough for DL, while at the parks we take snaks and bottle water and we stay at mothel 6 . - MrBlue  232.3 #1650 6:08AM
I bring snacks and bottled water. I also budget for my trips. I try to go as often as I can (about 5 times a year). - MinnieJ  281.9 #1112 6:16AM
You all are inspiring me to find ways to save! I really want to go this October but I know it will be a tough sell. But if I can save bit each month, then I bet it won't be as tough. Besides, we're probably going to be working on little Jedi #3 in the near future, so it'd be fun to do one last trip as a family of four!  - jedimommy  162.1 #2608 6:30AM
It's an expensive hobby but we gotta make sacrifices.... - AuzRoxUrSox  975.3 #208 6:39AM
We live about 6 hrs away and go every 3 months or so we take snacks and waters and have a Disneyland jar we put money in to save!! It adds up fast :) - banneygirl  123.6 #3239 10:48AM
When we had our pass we went once a month if not twice we live in tulare - Duckfan  13.9 #9456 3:20PM
We go 4-6 times a year, and we're about 5.5 hours away. We just decided to cut back on day-to-day non-essentials (movies, eating at expensive restaurants, going out for drinks, etc). Our secret is Priceline--we stayed at the Hilton for $30 per night in October. Our Golden Retriever, George, even got to come! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  648.2 #332 4:49PM
Thanks guys. You've inspired me to try harder & find ways to save. After all, going to Disneyland is a bigger priority than all the little things we waste money on every month. - Hesatalkintome  31.3 #6138 5:15PM
omg I would love to visit more frequently and I do have a cm friend that I can stay with out there but I don't have reliable transportation out there and saving up for a flight is costly when I have other bills to take care of first. sigh, this is why I need to be in so cal :/ - mochamistie  273.2 #1204 6:17PM
to save take a certain amount of your paycheck and go put it on a Disney card at the Disney store...then you can only spend that money at Disneyland or the store...not for lunch or groceries and the card is accepted almost anywhere in the parks...most of the carts didnt take them when I went in April of last year but some did when I went back in October....just an idea for you! Mochamistie...look into Amtrack...heard it is pretty cheap - yellowtonka  244.7 #1487 6:27PM
Get on Motels rewards programs. I travel a lot with my job and I usually will stay at a choice hotel (Quality Inn, Comfort Suites etc..) and only paid for a hotel room once last year during our Dland visits. - sparkplug  250.3 #1416 6:37PM
We live in Sacramento. I'm lucky with my job that I get mileage reimbursement. My whole job is about driving around. We use that "extra cash" for hotels. We eat cheap. When possible we try to stay with our family in Cerritos. That's the only way for us to be able to go once a month. - lockshockbarrel  245.4 #1478 6:44PM
We are Deluxe AP members and live in norcal. We go about 3-4 times a yr. We usually stay at the Best Western Park Place inn directly across the street. We get a AAA discount and breakfast is provided. There is a fridge and microwave so we actually bring food from home. We pack snacks and sandwiches to the park and then eat dinner in DL. You save a lot by bringing your own food and drinks. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #645 6:50PM
How do you get sandwiches and such into the parks? I've taken jerky, granola bars, peanuts ect. - connielu  1044.2 #193 7:01PM
@ MWaddict , still here? - connielu  1044.2 #193 7:11PM
@connielu I've brought pb&j sandwiches into the parks. Just put them in baggies or the gladware containers so they don't get squished. - MinnieJ  281.9 #1112 7:19PM
yellowtonka, we should just ride up together and bring the rest of the nor cal mw'ers with us! - mochamistie  273.2 #1204 7:32PM
Security usually doesn't bother with you bringing in food (although I got questioned about a lunch box I brought in for a rak). If you're worried about it, there is a picnic area to the left of the Disneyland park entrance and I believe you can rent a locker there as well. - bluefairy  643.8 #334 7:43PM
Thanks for all of the great ideas! Do they allow you to take in reusable water bottles? - chelle1318  436.8 #534 7:47PM
Mochamistie im trying to get back down there myself maybe sometime.soon - yellowtonka  244.7 #1487 8:59PM

I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1022 7:03PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.7 #335 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7586 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #521 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  183.5 #2290 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1022 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD Β  ice cream Β store till midnight.Β  - secretagentangel  8053.7 #11 1:41PM
