Advice needed (couldn't find it in Search): We are driving to Disneyland on a Monday from Nicolaus, CA. What would possibly be our best route traffic-wise? We are from WA state so we will rely on the GPS and advice. Thank you for your help!

Best use interstate 5 and go past hollywood after 7:30pm or morning after commute - E-Ticket  1651.9 #122 9:14AM
Thank you! - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 9:15AM
You're welcome. Garmin GPS with traffic worked for us a month ago.  There was still traffic arrival time around 9 pm - E-Ticket  1651.9 #122 9:18AM
Also move post to Disneyland talk as the hub doesn't reach everyone - E-Ticket  1651.9 #122 9:15AM
Weird, I logged onto the computer to move this and it is not on MyFeed. Technology is not being my friend today while I trip plan! - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 9:36AM
Yep, use the 5, carpool through LA and OC will really help no matter what time of day, and I'd  recommend parking in Toy Story Parking, which conveniently will appear as a destination on Google and Apple maps 😊) - SassafrasDavis  925.0 #239 9:21AM

I am finally getting around to sharing and sorry for the long post: For those who are looking for a great hotel to stay, we stayed at the HOJO Anaheim for our first time over New Year's. I had researched for about 2 months trying to decide on where to stay. We were in Building 1, facing the park. It was a little noisy due to the balcony door (not from the window) but everything else made up f  More...

Glad your stay was so wonderful. Thanks for taking the time to write this review.  - sewedna  579.0 #405 11:30PM
You had me at arranging the stuffed animals on the bed. 😍 that's so sweet! Thank you for the fabulous review! - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #24 1:31AM
It was super sweet and the kids loved it! Even my husband thought it was sweet. - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 4:13PM

Advice- I know that on super busy days Dland (like New Year's Eve) may stop selling tickets at the booths for crowd control. What about if you have ticket vouchers? Any thoughts/experience with this? Thanks!

Just make sure you get to the parks before they stop letting people in the parks. - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  367.5 #711 8:13AM
Thank you! I figured that this is all that we needed to do. :) - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 8:18AM
Make sure your voucher doesn't have a blackout date on there. Many of them have restrictions. I've seen people get turned away after spending all that time getting to the parks. - DLKenCA  3566.0 #50 9:22AM
they may issue a refund or you can upgrade to an ap (may be possible) or reissued for a later date. no admission is guaranteed even premium ap can be denied park admission if a park is to capacity,but usaully dca is always avaiable it has never reached capacity only dl side.arrive early as possible and get a handstamp -if the park closes for capacity the ones with handstamp are formed on a sepearate line as they will get in first only if they reopen the park - pikaplaid  7865.3 #17 9:56AM
I also believe if you are already in the park and decided to leave to go to either DCA or DTD then come back they may not even let you back in when at capacity. I've heard that if you have a handstamp, they maybe will let you back in, but I'm not sure. Been a while since I was a local! - disneymommy0910  234.4 #1688 9:59AM

Has anyone seen Disneyland park hopper tickets at Costco yet this year? In the past they have been out by now but haven't heard anything. We live in WA state.

I've been waitng for the oregon costco's to do something like they did last year but so far it's a no go. Last year they included a $50 gift card with a purchase which was pretty cool. - madsdad  1868.2 #109 9:35AM
We had these last year locally too. They sold out in about 1 month. I was hoping for this deal to come back since we are headed that way soon! - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 6:31AM
My mom who is a front end manager in Monterey CA said she was just informed that they would not be selling them.  Not sure if that's just for CA or all Costco in the western region. 😒. Bummed because that's how I normally convince friends to go - DisneyPrincessT  328.0 #864 9:34AM

Feeling a little nervous about our LAX to HOJO transfer due to reviews I have now found..didn't find before although I looked :(. I booked a private van through Prime Time Shuttles for our family. Thoughts???

Hi @ChurroChomper!  Each one of those vans are independent, so service varies greatly.  A taxi can cost you around $85-100 each way, so depending on the size of your party, that might be a better option. - djbreakdown  573.2 #406 7:03PM
Thank you! It is our family of 5 and will look into it. I appreciate your thoughts. I know I ask for a lot of advice on here but we only get to go once every 1-2 years. Wanting to make to special! Thanks again! - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 6:11AM

We have options to upgrade our booked HOJO trip. Building 1 with balcony facing disney or building 2 facing garden pool. What should we choose???

I'm gonna have to say balcony with view of Disney, of course! - BriHizzle  374.8 #693 2:21PM
Bldg 1 with the view of Disney! It is nice to wake up in the morning with Disney view (they gave me a nice spot before, i have the matterhorn view) - otilegna  2863.2 #59 2:27PM

It looks like we can possibly suprise our kids with a Dland trip about Dec 14-18. Nervous about the crowds/weather but origionally thought only later in Christmas break would be a possibility due to my teaching schedule. Advice on where to find cheap Disney stuff for our kids to open when giving them tickets. We are in WA state. Thanks for your thoughts!

The $1 section at Target! - Ldgsg  215.9 #1935 3:35PM
They are gonna love it! A Disney Store, JC Penney, Dollar tree or 99cent store, you just have to keep your eye out, inexpensive stuff is out there. - BeatleMike  635.6 #371 3:33PM
Thanks! Inexpensive is key as we are saving as much as we can for the trip. :-) - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 3:41PM
I kept checking the Disney store online, got lucky a few times with great things for my mini's.  Target and Michaels have some great deals too. - BelleLuvr  364.8 #719 9:13PM
Maybe someone can mail you a map after the cover changes to holiday.  - Dizkid  505.8 #476 9:20PM

We only get to go to Disneyland once a year, if we are lucky. I am a teacher so unfortunately only the busiest times of the year are an option for us. In your opinion, which would be better to visit the parks this year: January 1-4 (Christmas Break) or March 24-27 (Spring Break)?

Can I just say "Thank you for being a Teacher"? - Butterlina  1653.3 #121 6:10PM

Thank you for being a teacher. I appreciate the educators and staff who go the extra mile for my children! - BombFrogFormerCM  1187.6 #181 7:17PM
After Jan 2 the park isn't too bad, so i would say christmas break. As a parent thanks for all you do for kids! - dizneedude  1889.7 #107 5:52PM
Thank you so much! It means a lot to all of us teachers when parents show their support. Also, I thank all parents for all they do for our kiddos as a parent is a child's first and most important teacher! - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 7:05PM
My fiancΓ©e and I are both teachers and have visited several times on weekdays during spring break....the crowds always seems to be manageable. I will tell you that each time I have run into at least one student of never fails! :-) - Ms.Disney  121.4 #3379 7:53PM
We went our first year a few years ago when our spring break was a week earlier. We saw a TON of families from our small town! It is fun to see so many familiar faces so far from home. - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 8:01PM

What is the typical weather like in early December at Dland? Trying to plan our next trip. I have searched FAQs and would love your help!

As far as my body is concerned it's cold. But then again I've lived in So Cal my whole life and anything under 60 is cold. - aidensmama  340.3 #802 5:37PM
Thanks for your input everyone! Winter where we live is hard to predict too although you can usually count on many days below freezing, chilly wind and snow. :-) Rainy or not it would definitely be happier at Dland! - ChurroChomper  148.5 #2903 5:55PM
Weather here is a little hard to predict. We have some winters that are wetter than others and then some winters where you can go swimming on Christmas Day! - Prettynpink1023  285.0 #1156 6:20PM

Thank you so much PinkElephants for the RAK! My Lil Guy kept saying WOW is all this for ME??!!! Couldn't have come at a better time. Our area has been ravaged by a Wild Fire burning over 20,000 acres, 70+ homes, etc all within 2 days and it is still burning. We needed a pick-me-up! So thank you a million times for your generosity! You made his day and then some!

When is the best time to visit Disneyland? I teach September-Mid June so it is very difficult to go during the average school year. Also, what are some must see sights near Disneyland that can be reached by a short drive (i.e. beaches, etc.). Planning our next trip!
