Nov 20, 2011 7:12 PM  Disneyland Talk Land
Awhile back, I was posting about the sad story of my niece and nephew's parents stomping on their dreams of ever going to Disneyland. I had saved up the money before, and the kids were getting really excited. Then their parents decided they couldn't go, and we had to use the money for fixing the car. The kids were crushed and it made me feel awful. To make things worse, they started telling them My wife and I were never going to keep our promise, and that we were untrustworthy. We've worked extra hard, I've put in overtime, between school and work to make this work. Their parents are saying that they are thinking about it, and its starting to sound like a yes. But they are refusing to chip in at all, and they told the kids about our plan and how they think we're not going to make it happen again... I just needed to vent a little, I'm doing the best I can to make this work and they just like making things hard on me it seems. It just feels like they are punishing me for trying to make them happy, and I'm feeling the pressure to make this work so I don't disappoint them again. ((Edit: It sounds like I'm asking for a hand out, and that is not what I'm asking. Just wanted to make that clear, I appreciate all the support ^^))

Are you Canadian? Make sure you buy your park tickets from Flight Centre if you are. It's a great deal. Also, if you book Allegiant make sure you have trip insurance. I had to forfeit my flight on Sunday night because of the flooding and they won't help you at all. - Missshelly  698.3 #267 9:07PM
I had the same thought, this allegiant sounds shady. - bluefairy  643.3 #302 9:34PM

Grimghost, if you let me know exactly when you're going, I will give you a free photo-session so the kids can have some nice pics to take home with them. Come to my Facebook page and drop me a line if you want to take me up on it.  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Magical-Memories-Photography/151040008302146 - BrattyMickey  191.2 #2073 9:21PM

Grimghost I wish you the best disney trip ever! What you are doing will probably have a lifelong affect on these kids. I'm sure they will remember the trip and always be gracious to you for it. @disneypix that is a very nice gesture your offering :) - stevesdisneyprincess  141.0 #2841 9:39PM
Have a sit down with dates picked with all of them including the kids and book it right there in front of them!!!!! :) good luck I hope it works out this time!! Keeps us posted.. Sending fairy dust your way! - DLfan4life  9.4 #11062 7:17PM

I remember your story because it made me really mad. Sounds like you are trying to make it happen. Hang in there. - Dizkid  373.4 #586 7:18PM
I remember ur story :( well I really hope they let u take the kids after all...Good Luck :) - princessVanessa  384.3 #569 7:25PM
My suggestion would be to not bring it up again until you have all the money to pay for the trip...also rather than putting cash aside put the money on a Disney gift card..you can use the gift card to pay for your trip..you can load them up with I believe it is $1500 then you can't use it for anything but Disney...less tempting at least and make the Magic come true...saving on the gift cards works for me cause then what is left on the cards I use in the restaurants or gift shops but good luck - yellowtonka  244.7 #1395 7:32PM
That's a great idea! - BubbaLoo  870.6 #207 7:36PM
I shall definitely keep that in mind for spending money when we get there. Pity can't use that gift card to book through allegiant air though lol - grimghost  9.2 #11211 7:41PM
We saved up a lot of our spending $$ by buying gift cards. If you buy them at Safeway, you can also earn 4 times the rewards points to get $$ off your gas bar purchases! I figure we saved at least $75 on gas after buying about $600 in gift cards! Good luck with your planning! - AbbyDLfriend  233.2 #1545 8:37PM

If u r a Costco member u can book ether just a down payment and make payments like layaway. Just needs to be paid in full 30 days in advance. I also agree with buying Disney gift cards and even a gas gift card to ensure you can go. Also pre pay a hotel using kayak website. - tenilleg  201.2 #1951 9:33PM

Finally got all the money I needed together, I even sold my laptop on Craigslist to get the last amount to book, I log on today, and now I'm $500 short, prices doubled. I think I may cry out of frustration.

If you are selling your personal Belongings to prove your family members wrong than I think that's a pretty big sign that now isn't the time. Keep focused and work hard and you'll enjoy it more without the stress. Took us five years of hardship And faith and hard work but we got our AP 's again and are enjoying it. My trips To the park are my reward. I could've Pawned my guitars but who can enjoy a trip to Disneyland knowing they are too broke to be there? - WeMetAtDisneyLand  41.9 #5020 9:06AM

Well I appreciate all the sentiments, and I'm sure my posts are getting really annoying and aggravating lol So this will be the last you hear about this from me, since it's not right for me to use the lounge to whine, especially with all the trolls and arguments going around here lately.Β  thanks again everyone for making me feel better. :D - grimghost  9.2 #11211 10:51AM

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 week of Nov 23, 2015
It's going to be packed this week! The Disneyland Resort has doubled fireworks, Fantasmic!, parades, World of Color and more. EXPECT LARGE CROWDS throughout the weekend. Here's a guide that outlines early closures for attractions affected by double fireworks/parades. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 80s (approx 80% capacity). Important note when comparing last year's Crowd Index: we've seen larger crowds on average this year due to the 60th Celebration activities. 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 Nov 23, 2015 6:18PM

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  587.3 #336 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7410 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  415.4 #518 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  164.8 #2472 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  248.9 #1342 5:04PM
