Jul 17, 2013 9:45 AM  Disneyland Talk Land
On this most special day, I can't think of anything better to do than reminisce about our visits to this magical place. How about sharing a visit where you either surprised someone with a visit and/or was surprised by a visit to The Happiest Place On Earth? I will start! Even though I grew up about 15 miles from DL, I was only able to visit an amusement park every few years growing up. One year in the mid-70's, I was about 7/8/9, my mom said we were going to Knotts! Well as much as we were excited about going to an amusement park, my siblings and I were disappointed we weren't going to Disneyland. :-( So the fun day finally arrives and us kids jump into the back of the truck (covered with a shell, remember this was before seatbelt laws). Off we go. Now I was a nerdy kid who was obsessed with maps, I could give you directions to anywhere in the Western US. So I'm laying on the makeshift bed propped on my elbows, looking through the pass through glass towards the front of the truck. My stepfather, mom and aunt are in the cab. So we are cruising down the 91, I'm keeping track of the off ramps, yup getting closer to Beach Blvd. But wait, WE PASS Beach Blvd and get on the 5. So I start pounding on the window, try to telling them they passed the offramp and they are on the WRONG FREEWAY! I tell my siblings, now we are all freaking out! How am I going to give my stepfather directions back to Knotts if they can't hear me? Now we are all pounding on the glass. Finally my aunt turns around. Through sign language we are trying to tell her the dilemma. But she is not getting it!! Arg!! I notice we are slowing down, I look up and we are getting off at Harbor Blvd. What?!?! I start screaming to my siblings, "I think we are going to Disneyland! We are at Disneyland!!" All three of us are freaking out! Sure enough I go back to my post on the bed and Yes! we turn right into the Disneyland driveway. I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT!! We park, my mom comes around and unlocks us from the back. "Are you surprised?!" I swear that was the Happiest Day of my life to that point. The adults could stop laughing at me telling my story. This day was so great I even forgot about being upset at having to wear matching clothes with my sisters lol. I am so grateful that almost 40 years later I have this magical memory as clear a day in my heart. :-). Looking forward to reading your stories! (And thanks for reading my book lol)

GREAT story, PrincessDuckie!! I started going to Disneyland almost 20 years ago with my sister and her 5 girls (although it was only 4 at the time!) Well we hadn't gone for quiet a few years and she and her family decided to go right after school got out-a couple years ago. They begged me to come, but I couldn't get the time. Well I surprised them and was sitting on the connecting airplane when they boarded (we live in different cities). I was the obnoxious person in the row in front of them-putting my chair back and forth, etc. I finally turned around and we all squealed! It was a great surprise and a great trip! I only wish that before I turned around on the plane I would've sung, "It's a 'Little' World Afterall". Ha!! It would've made her crazy!! She would've had to correct me! - SmallWorldSister  11.0 #9248 2:22PM
Best story ever! You are a cool sister and aunt! How did you figure out what flight they were on? - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 6:14PM
That is awesome! - widowtallan  282.9 #950 7:59PM
Love this story. It got me through a statistics class today! Im in class now smiling! - april_december  299.7 #843 10:13AM
Yikes statistics... - missariel33  1943.1 #72 11:23AM
Oh good! :-). I loved Stats so you made me smile :-) - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 11:27AM
These are all awesome stories! My favorite surprise was when I surprised my sister when we were both teenagers. I was 17 and she was 15 when our Mom died and we went to live with our Godparents. We had to go to many therapy appointments and life was challenging then, so I decided we needed a break. One day I told her that the next day we had to go to a big therapy appointment in Orange County and I threw her sneakers and jacket in my trunk, making sure she didn't see. When we were on the freeway and passing the signs for DL, she kept saying how much she wished we could go that day and how sad it is to pass by DL and not be able to go. I waited until the very last offramp to turn off and I said, "Oh heck, lets just go to Disneyland instead!" She started crying because she was so happy to spend the day at our favorite place and not have to go to another difficult therapy appt. and I started crying because it made me so happy. Still one of my favorite memories of my life, Disneyland is pure medicine for whatever you are going through😊 - Nala  375.1 #554 4:14PM
You are such an amazing sister. I'm sorry for your loss. I'm glad you have each other. I'm sure your sister will never forget this day. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 10:47PM
That was so exciting to read! I remember being locked in the back of the "shell". We used to pound on the glass too. Thx for sharing your story :) - goofymom2boys  1451.7 #97 9:51AM
You are welcome. I think shells aren't as popular anymore cause you can't throw a bunch of people back there anymore lol - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 11:20AM
Yep, me too. Only it was my dad's El Camino. Laying down the whole way. - HalfCaff  426.7 #464 11:31AM
Lol my dad had an ElCamino with a shell too! Brings back memories of trips to Belmont Shores, my bicentennial kite and jogging skates! - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 1:42PM
That is such a cute and wonderful story!! I was smiling while reading through it! I first went to Disneyland when I was 18 now I am about to 25 in less than a month and I am just so in love with the place. I miss it so much (I live in Texas) and I cannot wait to go back and visit it again. I especially look forward to taking my mom and my siblings for their first time ever! - diduarte  6.6 #13270 9:55AM
How exciting, that will be an amazing trip for sure. Be sure to check into the Lounge as it gets close to your visit. We always have the inside scoop of what's going on at DLR. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 11:22AM
I surprised my Mom with a trip to DL in 2006. I was taking my sister and her 4 kids and my mom was visiting at the time. We all jumped in the car and drove 10 hrs. straight from UT to Anaheim. She as 76 at the time and we had a wonderful time. I am so glad we had that trip because we lost her 8 months later and the kids have such great memories of their Grandma! - widowtallan  282.9 #950 10:05AM
Neat!!! Where do you live in Utah? We are in Syracuse. - iteachdisney  192.4 #1992 10:18AM
:-) what a heartwarming story. Thanks for sharing. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 11:23AM
Salt Lake. Glad to meet you! - widowtallan  282.9 #950 1:12PM
What a nice story! My favorite memories of Disneyland are also from my childhood, when we drove there once a year in the summer. It was also about a 15-20 mile drive for us straight down Sepulveda, which turned into Willow then into Katella. It was pretty flat on the way there, no tall buildings back then, so when we got within a couple miles we could see Matterhorn! What a happy, happy sight! I will always remember Disneyland this way. - debbiev  967.7 #171 10:08AM
:-). I'm sad that the Disneyland sign of our childhood is gone. But we have TOT and Matterhorn as landmarks I guess. Thanks for sharing. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 11:24AM
I know, I miss that sign at the front gate too! I also miss the Skyway and other rides of our childhood. - debbiev  967.7 #171 1:26PM
Okay, me next. Some of you know that my family lost our home to a fire last summer. ( Many precious Disneyland souvenirs lost as well ) We were fortunate to be able to salvage a few items, but we truly lost everything. I began plotting a surprise Christmas trip, but never thought I could pull it off. I saved like crazy, bought plane tickets and Disney tickets, booked a hotel suite. Then I realized that my daughters would need time off from work. I personally went to their bosses homes to ask them to make phony schedules and give my girls time off. I began stealing everyone's clothes and secretly packing. Then I told my children that a friend would be taking our family portrait for Christmas, and the only time available was 8 a.m. That meant everyone must be up and cute no later than 6 a.m. on a Saturday. Everyone was so tired that no one realized we were traveling the wrong direction until we actually reached the airport shuttle. My girls were freaking out wanting to know what was going on. "What about work?" "I have a date!" Then right before we got on the plane, my daughter received a text from her Starbucks crew asking how "family pictures" were going. We called Grandma from the esplanade and texted her a picture. It was a great surprise and a small step toward building new memories as a family. We're still working on collections. My daughters and I will be in the parks in 11 days. We hope to meet some of you wonderful people! - iteachdisney  192.4 #1992 10:13AM
I didnt know ur story but WOW. What an amazing surprise u planned. - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  803.2 #204 10:26AM
Sorry for your loss, but what a great story. Im sure all the planning was worth it. How cool that you are still surprising your kids even as they are older. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 11:26AM
Nice story. I am sorry for your loss. - widowtallan  282.9 #950 1:20PM
LOVE THIS!! - SmallWorldSister  11.0 #9248 2:29PM
Great story--what a nice surprise you gave them! Have fun with your daughters at your next visit! - #1DisneyDad  238.4 #1401 7:57PM
Thanks for sharing that is a great story!!! And I so... Remember those trucks lol. - annamichelle  234.5 #1454 11:27AM
:-). It's a wonder our generation lived through the crazy driving while hanging out in the back of the truck. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 1:46PM
This brightened my day. I wish I can remember my first time. - sallyg  234.1 #1462 12:28PM
:-) Me too, I think I was around 4/5. I need to ask my mom to dig out some pics - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 1:46PM
This is a absolutely a true story, almost the exact opposite. I was about 10yrs old, staying over at my Best Friends house. His Dad was a funny man, a bit on the odd side, almost like a big kid. Out of the blue, he asks my friend and his 3 siblings and myself, "hey, do you want to go to Disneyland tomorrow?" Of course our answer was an excited "yes". He told us all to get ready for bed, get some rest. The next morning, he wakes us up real early and we all get into the car. We drive to Disneyland, excited to no end, and he pays for parking, we drive into the lot (when it was in front of Disneyland, pre-pre DCA) all excited. And he drives by the front and points to Disneyland and says, "There it is, Disneyland". And he proceeds to drive out of the parking lot and takes us back home. We were all torn, screaming, begging him to take us in, but he just laughed it off. Cruel, I know, but we all knew him to be that way, and shrugged it off. - KennyV  271.4 #1060 12:35PM
Omg this is horrible!!! :( - PrincessKaylee  249.9 #1263 12:36PM
I know, I know, it was especially cruel. But in hindsight, I've got a story to tell. I wonder if that's why I have been an AP holder for the past 11 years, some deep rooted resentment that someone kept me from going into the park. Hmmmm....? :) - KennyV  271.4 #1060 1:02PM

So cruel! Glad you are an AP and was able to move past such a horrible experience. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 1:48PM
I think because of the experience, I am an AP. - KennyV  271.4 #1060 2:18PM
So did his kids kill him in his sleep?? - SmallWorldSister  11.0 #9248 2:31PM
Wow what a story. I almost cried. Glad u enjoy disney now when u want 😊 - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  803.2 #204 2:44PM
SmallWorld Sister, no, he is still alive today as far as I know. But yes, it was a pretty rough day from there. He was a real jokster, so it was sort of par for the course and we all let it go. Unless my friend's younger siblings are in therapy, that I don't know for sure. - KennyV  271.4 #1060 2:53PM
What? I'm sorry that happened to you :-( - #1DisneyDad  238.4 #1401 8:02PM
Thanks VeganDisneyDad, but what doesn't kill you, makes you an AP holder. I'm pretty well (mal)adjusted :) - KennyV  271.4 #1060 2:02PM
My last trip was a surprise! I was on a college tour trip with my school and we were staying in Anaheim. They gave us about 3 hours to wander Downtown Disney and get dinner. Two of my friends that were with me had annual passes so we decided to grab dinner in the park! Turns out some of our teachers had the same idea and they ended up letting us stay til closing! - MelodyTime  297.7 #854 12:48PM
Sweet, DTD is so close but yet so far when you can't get in. Fun surprise! - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 1:49PM
Oh I loved your story! I felt excited for you! We have tried to surprise our kids several times. I think the best was our 2nd trip. They knew we were saving $ to go and thought we had much more to save. We went to SoCal to visit my gma and on the way home we told them we were tired and going to stop at a hotel for the night. (It was only early afternoon). We parked at the hotel but they didn't know where we were bc we went a back way. I captured on video the moment we let them in on the secret. They were so excited!!! My oldest was so happy but being practical she asked "do we have enough money?!?"and waited for the answer before she let herself get too excited. :) - BaronessVonShush  120.5 #3089 1:02PM
So cool! Lucky you have it on video. I actually remember asking my mom the same thing, I was so worried we didn't have enough money. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 1:51PM
Last year for my birthday, I opened the preset from my boyfriend and inside was a shirt that said "I'm going to the Disneyland Resort" and a copy of our trip itinerary. I was so excited I cried! Three weeks later he proposed under the fireworks on Main Street! - NEVERGR0WUP  128.4 #2947 1:27PM
Kudos to him for keeping the secret for three weeks! Congrats, what a sweet proposal. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 1:52PM
Love your story! I had a similar surprise when my sisters, cousins, and I were in elementary school. We were visiting SoCal and our parents told us we were going to Sea World for the day. So as we're on our way we notice we're driving by Disneyland.....our parents told us we had to pass by there to get to San Diego. Since we were young and not from the area, we didn't know any different. But all of a sudden we pulled into the Disneyland parking lot and our parents yelled "Surprise!". We were ecstatic....I think I even cried. Best surprise ever! - Ms.Disney  121.4 #3070 2:03PM
Yea! How fun that you were able to share your surprise visit with your cousins. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 6:17PM
Haha! Fun story. Thanks for sharing :) - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5186.2 #17 2:26PM
:-). De nada. - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 6:18PM
Lovely story I enjoyed reading it thank you for sharing :) I remember when I was little we couldn't go to DL often so when I was 9 or 10 my mom said she wanted to talk to us in our room. I was scared trying to remember what I did wrong and why am I getting in trouble lol that night she sat my sisters and I in my bed and she said "I want you guys to get up early tomorrow morning because we are going somewhere" I said "where?" I guess she couldn't hold the secret any longer and she said "Disneyland" I swear we all started crying, hugging and jumping of joy! My little sister was so excited to meet Minnie for the first time. That night I couldn't sleep at all! That was the first time I have ever gotten up at 4 am to get ready and made my bed without my mom telling me to πŸ˜‚ and then at 7 am we were off to the happiest place on earth! We got there and we were so excited. The best memory ever πŸ˜ƒ - KladiaDisneyNinja  266.8 #1117 3:07PM
Awwwww, love! I swear a DLR trip is the only reason I like for insomnia. (Although as a parent and a driver, it's kind of a bummer not getting any sleep) - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 6:20PM
That's a lot to do but i bet there's nothing better than seeing your children's smile and joy at the parks :) - KladiaDisneyNinja  266.8 #1117 12:47PM
Great story! I grew up walking distance from Disneyland but only was able to go once as a kid. Now I go with my hubby & kids every chance we get! - ocmama  38.1 #4950 6:59PM
Thank you. How fun that you get to visit a lot! - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 10:59PM
*tear* - #1DisneyDad  238.4 #1401 7:31PM
I hope it's a happy tear! :-) - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 10:59PM
Yes, it was. Great story! - #1DisneyDad  238.4 #1401 7:45AM
What a fun story! Riding in the back of our blue VW bus without seatbelts. Those were the days. I visited DL as a kid, but my connection has been the last two years. Somewhere deep down, it is my way to keep my kids young forever.*sniffs and grabs a tissue* - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1040.0 #158 11:55PM
Your kids, my kids, all of us are young when we enter the gates of DL! It's nice to be ageless there :-) - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 12:11AM
My nieces and nephew were surprised last night with their first trip to DL. My SIL got them worked up in the day by taking them to the Disney store, then later that night gave them Mickey shirts and told them about the trip. I can't wait to go with them tomorrow! - JenGwen323  1526.7 #93 12:19AM
You are going to have the best day ever! Where do you start?! - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 9:23AM
Aww...I love this post! Last year, I asked my Dad out to dinner. I was happy to hear that he didn't have plans. I told him that I was going to take him to a 50's themes place that I thought he would enjoy...little did he know that my family & I were taking him to DCA to hang out @ Carsland. It was his 1st visit to DCA & a day I will NEVER forget! I look forward to the day I can bring him back to enjoy Disneyland since he hasn't been there since I was young! :) - MissAmericaSings  381.0 #540 1:08AM
What a special day for your family! So cool you were able to do that for your dad. :-) - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 9:25AM
I love reading all of these stories! Mine was when I was like 6; my mom and stepdad picked me up from my dads house Christmas Eve and told me we were going somewhere (don't remember anymore) and next thing I know we show up at the Disneyland hotel! We had a nice dinner with Mickey, Minnie and the gang. It was great to wake up Christmas morning at the hotel. The bad thing about the trip was my stepdad had a hangover so no park and 9 months later I got a baby sister....... Lol still a fun story - MrsGrumpy2002  203.3 #1864 9:56AM
Wow, I didn't see that end coming as I was reading it. Well, a younger sibling is not a bad consolation....or was it? :) j/k - KennyV  271.4 #1060 2:05PM
Awwww, what a sweet story for your sis.... the surprise that kept on giving. A special Christmas for sure - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 3:45PM
I love my sister but we have never really gotten along...... - MrsGrumpy2002  203.3 #1864 6:09PM
LOL matching clothes!!!! - TeenMickey  388.6 #527 1:46AM
Yuk, right?! Ask your mom if she remembers this story! - PrincessDuckie  799.4 #207 8:51AM

CROWD PREDICTIONSpring Break is winding down as Disney reduces hours this week. The MouseWait Historical Crowd Index shows mid-70s for this week which seems about right. Crowds will be lighter than last week with Friday and Sunday being the busiest days. - Admin Apr 14, 2015 12:04PM



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  372.9 #559 5:39PM

any chance you will be welcoming dogs in your outside dining area anytime soon? - MelodyMouse  4019.8 #26 12:24PM
that would be nice - DisneyDavidEMT  2016.1 #66 12:34AM
I heard a law was passed this year that permitted dogs to be allowed in any outdoor dining patio area... someone should look into if this applies lol ... - TheRealJackandSally  73.3 #0 7:08PM
My dog was welcome there for the MW striker night meet up on Mar 31! - MelodyMouse  4019.8 #26 1:45PM
Scotchie has dined there with us...but he also had his vest on - BombFrogFormerCM  841.1 #195 4:53PM
http://cchealth.org/eh/retail-food/dog-law-faq.php Β  I know folks love theiri pets but I still do not think this is sanitary Β from a food perspective. See the url for CA law. Unless they provide a designated pet area outside, dogs cannot lick the plates/utensils, who cleans up after a dog accident......No pets in at a restaurant for now (service dogs are the exception). Disney is excellent with their food cleanliness in the parks per the Public health inspections. DTD does not fare as well per Retaurarant inspection. Check the Health Care Agency for the current restaurant inspections. As a Public health nurse I always check to see who is keeping clean in their kitchens. Diners beware! - Plumiegirl  8572.4 #3 10:42AM
i asked for MW meet up discount on 3/31 and nobody working knew what I was taLking about but they did give me an ap discount - MelodyMouse  4019.8 #26 4:22PM
