Grew up in Southern California and going to Disneyland. Ended up moving to North Carolina when I was 11 and only been back twice since then. My favorite rides are POTC and Indiana Jones. I can't wait for my next trip!

Does Disneyland every stay open past the official closing time?  I'll be in the parks from July 21-23 and I was just curious if I would get lucky and the parks stayed open after midnight.

If I'm in line before midnight will I be able to get onto that ride or once the clock strikes midnight they shut down the ride?   - jlipstone  301.3 #842 1:12PM

There have been times when the parks closed at 10 or 11pm and they extended it an hour or so later while being there but I haven't heard of it staying open past midnight when closing at midnight.. But maybe it has :) - brodysmommy  406.1 #510 12:59PM

Has anyone done the Walk in Walt's Tour since Club 33 was redone?  I'm trying to decide if I should do it on my next trip which is July 22nd and 23rd.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Oh I have not. But that is a great idea! - MeridaFan  3549.7 #36 1:08PM

I'm visiting DL July 21-23, 2015 and I'm looking at hotel options. Β Normally I stay with family in Glendora, but the drive down the 57 each morning and back home at night gets a little old. Β I'm looking to stay at either the SpringHill Suites down Harbor Blvd or Fairfield Inn across the street from DL. Β I have Marriott points so either stay will be free. Β Has anyone stayed at either of these h  More...

Are any MW CMs one of the five infected with the measles?

I have a trip planned for jan. 31, but might have to cancel because I'm pregnant. It really sucks that people don't vaccinate their kids for "religious reasons" or "don't want them to get autism". I am up to date on my shots but I have to think about the baby in my belly. I was really looking forward to a last trip before baby is here in May, but now I don't know if I should take the risk. VACCINATE!!!!' I hope California learns from this and steps it up and passes a law to make vaccines mandatory!!!!!! Rant over.  - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1156.9 #137 8:40PM

Did the parks do anything to their rides and traffic areas to disinfect? When I worked a children's museum, it was customary to lisol handles and toys at the end of the shift. What is done at the disney parks along these lines?  - TheQuintanars  7.4 #0 9:42AM

My wife and I were debating which movie is more sad tonight. We are stuck between WALL-E and Up. Which one would you choose?

Wall-e! It has a beautiful love story. You could snuggle under a blanket, hold hands, and watch the movie - hippoluver  280.2 #986 5:14PM
More sad? Wall-E is sadder for a longer part of the movie but Up made everyone cry within the first 15 minutes so it's tough. I would probably say Up is sadder. - missmimi90  1985.1 #70 5:17PM
It's been a long time since we've seen both. WALL-E is on the Disney Channel right now, so I'll have a better idea once we finish watching both.  - jlipstone  301.3 #842 5:23PM

BTMRR question for the motion sick impaired. I'll be at Disneyland at the end of the month and my wife wants me to ride BTMRR with her. And trying to be a good husband I want to comply. However, I get motion sick very easily. I wanted to see if this ride really is hard for those of us who get motion sick or not. I've watched several YouTube videos, but I can't tell from them. Any and all advice is  More...

I can't ride the Tea Cups, Astro Orbiters or Star Tours but BTMRR is one of my favorite rides.  - kskating  612.0 #306 12:28PM
I am exactly this too. All three are no nos for me too but BTMRR doesn't bother me one bit. - MinnieTinker  528.0 #367 6:04PM
Me three. I get car sick so I can't ride those, along with the swings in DCA. But thunder is my favorite! And it's a lit smoother now and less jerky than before - brodysmommy  406.1 #510 9:07PM
the new improved Btmrr now makes me sick :( i'll still ride, but i don't enjoy it as much. if you get sick fairly easy, I'd ride at the end of night so your day isn't ruined by sickness.  - OhanaPhoto  3700.2 #34 8:59AM
Thanks everyone for the great advice. My apologies for the late reply and bumping this back to the top of the page, but it's been a crazy week at work and just got a chance to look at this.  - jlipstone  301.3 #842 8:51AM

I'll be at Disneyland the week of Memorial Day for 3 days and can't wait! I was wondering which parking deck people preferred to park in? I've always used Mickey & Friends, but didn't know if Toy Story or Pumba would be a better option? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Whichever gets me to the parks first! - JenGwen323  1684.0 #90 1:44PM
Less walking with the Toy Story lot, but M&F is more convienent for me from the freeway.  - JenGwen323  1684.0 #90 1:46PM
Unless you miss the last of the toy story lot busses going back to your car. Then you are walking a heck of a lot to get back LOL - missmimi90  1985.1 #70 1:49PM
We prefer the toy story lot - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5407.9 #17 2:51PM
M&F for the covered parking on a hot day!  The walk is nice, too if you don't feel like taking the tram :0) - zenderella  408.9 #506 4:04PM
