Ok Mouse Watier's, I have a dilemma. Hubby says that there is a small possiblity that we can go to Disneyland in October. My issue is we have to save as much money on this trip as possible, so DD can go to College this fall, and I don't know how. I went on the Disneyland site and I can get a hotel close, hopper pass & meal plan, for what I think is reasonable, but hubby can get the Holiday Inn & Suites for free. I want to get the Disney meal deal and he doesn't. I want to order tickets online, he want's to buy the 3 day hopper pass @ the local grocery store. I'm kind of at a road block and I need HELP...... Please respond or Email me @ [email protected]

Here is what I would do. Get the hotel for free. That is the biggest expence. Get the tickets on line. If you can find some where to get a discount, the better. Eat breakfast out othe park, sandwiches for lunch and the best place for dinner is th Plaza Inn in Dland. Chicken dinner. You can change a brest for two thighs and the drinks are refillable all for $13.00 a plate. Coffee is free refill at the Market House Cafe - PinTrader  262.7 #1298 11:19AM
the hotel deal is a big saver, that awesome!!! and theres really no difference buying tickets online or via grocery store if your planning to get the same park hopper deal, except the meal plan, just check and make sure your able to choose what places you'd like to eat there are so many great ones and a couple of new ones just opened up. (: - Gemflower  100.9 #3663 11:26AM
Do the hotel for free. Go to Cal Poly Pomona to get discounted tix (call ahead to see if they have any and if you need student id) and eat wherever it's cheap. Restaurants.com usually has deals like House of Blues. Or get tickets at local grocery - Elaine  411.4 #567 11:29AM
I like 2eyemike's idea. Hotel is the biggest expense. Snacks and maybe sandwiches and a dinner at plaza inn is the best deal! I'm sure one time on a budget won't hurt u and soon you'll have a chance to splurge again - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 11:33AM
Very good advice from 2eyedmike :o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1191.2 #159 11:39AM
Thank You for the input, but my issue with the hotel, is not the fact it's free, but it's 1/2 mile from the park, near the freeway and Anahiem transport is yuck, and so I would prefer to stay somewhere close and walk. Also we wouldn't get the special offers Disney gives you when you book with them, like the hour in Fantasyland before the park opens and the early entry to Toontown. Also we may want to stay an extra day, instead of the beach, so if we get the ticket pass from the grocery store, can we upgrade @ the park and how much will it cost us? I know he's trying, free hotel and air, but I just feel like he's not listening to me. - ColoradoMickey  548.5 #400 11:48AM
The shuttle to Disneyland is a great option. I stayed at the holiday inn, the fee for the shuttle is a few bucks a day per person, (great since you'll be gettin a free hotel) and you're the first to be picked up and the first to be dropped off in that route. - ansloth  819.0 #238 11:56AM
From what I have heard you have to purchase the meal plan along with the hotel.. And if you eat somewhere where the meal cost more than your voucher you pay the diff. You may want to research it a little more before you buy. - Pintraderswife  468.3 #491 11:58AM
the hotel if it is the one on Walnut I think is the road it is literally right behind the parking structure...it isnt that bad of a walk unless you have little ones -we walked from Holiday Inn on Walnut to the parking structure and got on the tram to go to the parks...food wise...I dont care for the "meal plans" so I just would suggest taking that money you are going to spend on those plans and get a Disney gift card from your local Disney store and use that for your food because then if you wanted to snack all day you can or if you want meals you can...the choice is yours and you are not limited on whether you can have 4 snacks or 4 meals plus anything left on that card you can spend in the parks...and also I have found that the early entrance isnt that big of a deal for us since we usually stay until the park closes and October isnt usually that busy..another option you can try is Costco Travel (if you have a Costco card) and take lots of snacks and there is a Food4Less grocery store on Katella if you want to buy your snacks when you get there..it is just about a 5-10 minute drive from the Holiday Inn. Lots of ways to save money and still enjoy yourself! - yellowtonka  244.7 #1481 12:06PM
If you have a costco card the might have a reasonabe pachage. With what you are looking for, you will need to stay at Paradice Pier (coniers lvl about $275 a night. That will save you on the food). CA Disny Hotell ($350 a night) or the Grand Califorian ($400 a night) this is an average. All hotells come with a fridge ana microwave. I suggest to bring your food. Staying at any other hotel will not allow you early access. - PinTrader  262.7 #1298 12:11PM
I say stay at the free suite and buy food to make it there since suites have a kitchen. I know that having the Disney meal is part of the Disney going experience but sometimes you do have to make sacrifices,especially if you have one of your kids heading to college. The important thing is that you will go to the park(s) so the other stuff can wait for the next trip. Of course, everyone can offer advice but ultimately it will be your choice and everything will be fine. Happy choosing =) - VivaHate88  154.0 #2727 12:26PM
I'd go with the free hotel because really, how much time will you be spending in your room? Then find your other deals elsewhere. Food is expensive in the parks, so buy food outside of the parks. The restaurants outside the parks honestly serve better food for a better price. - jazmin21  182.3 #2291 12:27PM
So, one more question. If we go, we will be spending 4 1/2 days in CA, Hubby wants to spend 3 days in the park, 1 day at the ocean and 1/2 day shopping @ Downtown Disney. We are planning to go to Disneyland, Wed & Thursday, but what day? Friday or Saturday is best to go to Disneyland? - ColoradoMickey  548.5 #400 2:37PM
in October go Friday. school is in session so very low wait times :) - SammyJo  348.7 #716 2:42PM
Remember, you give alittle, he gives alittle. Compromise! That way everyones happy :-) and enjoy that trip!! - DisneyDawn  419.2 #559 2:47PM
Try Discount Tickets online for a discount on Disney tickets. - queenovhearts  22.4 #7232 7:59PM
I would go with the free hotel. That is a big chunk of the vacation budget. Most of the hotels have a shuttle so you won't need to pay for parking. We did the Costco thing last august but it didn't save us much money and since we don't stay at the hotel much it seemed a bit over priced. We always drive so we don't have a rental car charge and we can hit the beach and other places like Hollywood on our down day. We also stock the hotel fridge and bring snacks and drinks to the park. The meal plan at DL is not as great as it is in WDW so I would skip that. Lots of rambling! Have a great trip! - minigirl1156  789.9 #251 8:13PM
Thank You Everyone who has responded to this post. If everything works out with DD college expenses. We are going with the plan of booking the free hotel, buying our park tickets @ the store and start buying Disney & Visa Gift cards for the next 2 months to cover food and shopping. We also plan to go to the park on Wed, Thur & Fri and the beach Sat. So we hope to meet a lot of Mouse Waiter while we are there. Wish us luck. :) - ColoradoMickey  548.5 #400 9:40AM
Glad to hear! Enjoy - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 9:42AM
Are you part of a credit union? I got my parents tickets through my credit union for over $15 cheaper than the store or park - pintsize  290.1 #1029 9:50AM
For me it's a no brainer. Paying for college is way more important than a trip to dl. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #206 10:01AM
If I were in that predicament my husband would have said here's your 2 options: 1) Go my way the way we CAN afford or 2) Stay home! *I would walk the 1/2 a mile, 10 minutes, eat at McD's, pack that early hour into the day, I wouldn't care as long as I was IN the park everything else is just crumbs. lol - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #273 10:06AM

Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  7412.0 #14 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2872.8 #52 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  771.7 #262 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  263.6 #1291 6:54PM

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 #333 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7518 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  446.1 #522 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  182.2 #2293 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.6 #1045 5:04PM
