Hi and welcome!

We stay at hotels that offer complementary breakfast. I tend to favor Springhill Suites. They offer eggs, waffles, bacon , biscuits/gravy. Changes everyday. Plus the rooms are larger. They have a couch area that has a hideabed. You can look online for details. They are Marriot, so earn rewards for future stays.  - Sugarbuzz  193.1 #1990 9:37AM

Awesome !!! We have five kiddos and we have done AP with our kids for almost 10 years. Welcome Β°oΒ°Stay somewhere like Embassy Suites and have a full breakfast there. Waking up early is worth it and you will save $$$.If you plan to stay for two or more days stock up on food before hand and have pool time at the hotel.This will help with food costs and give any little ones you have a chance to nap without the older ones feeling like they are waiting.You can bring any food or drink into the park that you can walk and eat so take advantage of that and the cooler sized lockers just outside of guest services on the DL side to store those items.Don't forget ponchos for water rides who wants to take a big group back to the hotel ;) Sandals with a back strap that are comfy and will dry.With out group of 7 we take lots of photos and have the kids collect buttons from shops around the park it's fun and free. Pressed coins are a great scavenger hunt and another great way to have collectors items for them to keep as well.Jus some things we have done over the years with our kids making magical memories.

Don't pay for water most restaurants will give you a cup for free, with or without purchase.  There is also a pass for parents with small children for switching places to get on rides.  - bbboldgirl1  6.4 #13770 7:31PM

Hi everybody! Long work day but wanted to say hi!!! Thanks for hosting!

This will be my 2nd year working the 24 hour party I have a pretty easy shift 18:30-22:30 but CMs are being routed to Angel stadium so guests can park in our lot. It's not so bad...I can't wait to see the new WOC! Have fun everyone, pack your patience and above all else, be polite! Thanks!Β  - CM_Tamstirr  553.2 #337 10:39PM
Have you seen the new parking lot on ball and harbor? Does anyone know what it's for? I thought it might be new CM lot?? Hopefully! - secretagentangel  1555.5 #95 10:44PM
Patience and politeness are key!  πŸ˜Š - DisneyFanZoe  1208.1 #129 11:13PM
Hello! No line for me tonight. I can't handle the 24 hour crowds but I can't wait to see all of the pics. I'm excited for those that are going. I hope it doesn't rain on the people in line. Pack patience this weekend, be safe, and have fun! - luxkitty  2506.4 #48 10:47PM
The crowds will be extra crowded.  πŸ˜¬ - DisneyFanZoe  1208.1 #129 11:16PM
Some of the people who lined up will be pushing 36+ hours, that's insane.  - BeatleMike  609.0 #301 11:19PM
I couldn't do that.  I'm old.  And tired.  And sane.  πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚ - DisneyFanZoe  1208.1 #129 11:21PM
BeatleMike 36 hours of dealing with crowds and no sleep = I cannot handle that. - luxkitty  2506.4 #48 11:22PM
People need to be cautious, 24 hours is already pushing your body. If they don't rest and go further, their judgement will become impaired, hand eye coordination goes out the window so I hope they aren't driving, hormones go out of whack and emotions will be all over the place, the heart actually starts to stress and blood pressure will likely go crazy, some people after 24 hours actually get the affect of dehydration or even schizophrenia. These early birds best keep this in mind and take naps when they can for their own safety and that of others. - BeatleMike  609.0 #301 11:37PM
And DL is just sensory overload anyway--being in that for 24 hours straight can be overwhelming, then you add crowds to it.  Then, you consider that a lot of people will have been eating junk food, drinking coffee/energy drinks, eating sugar, and maybe some alcohol.  If you're haven't ever done something like this before and aren't aware of the signals your body sends you, it could be bad.  Panic attacks, high blood pressure, dehydration--those are all very real concerns.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  585.6 #317 11:50PM
Again...why take kids to that? So wrong imo. 😏 - Darlingwendi  1189.2 #132 12:25AM
It is...  Seeing exhausted children at 3am is not pretty and it's mind boggling the parents that insist they continue on.   - DisneyFanZoe  1208.1 #129 12:29AM
My son wanted to go and I flat out told him, 13 is too young to be up that longΒ running around all day at the parks. Today was his last day of school, so that wouldn't have been the issue. - BeatleMike  609.0 #301 12:43AM
We are checked in at the HOJO and getting ready for the mayhem! Too excited to sleep - leafs17  124.2 #3022 1:06AM

Bring your own food and drinks. Rent a locker to store your items and all quick service restaurants will give free water and/or ice. Save money for a special treat like ice cream.

Bengal bbq is fairly cheap, and yummy.  Matterhorn Macaroons at Jolly Holiday are only 1.99--great price for a treat.  Dole Whips are pretty inexpensive (3.50 I think).  Plaza inn chicken is a really good deal if you share.  We actually share pretty much every meal (portions are huge, anyway), and don't order sodas, and doing those two things helps with the food cost A LOT.  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  585.6 #317 10:59AM
We like to share. Portion sizes are large sodas are expensive if you're trying to save money. Freeze water bottles if it's hot out  DCA New Orleans.  - suzieq65  29.3 #5597 11:36AM
Food (soup/salad) in bread bowls is always a good option for us, filling and cheap (@$10).  Corndogs/apples for lunch (@$7).  Stick with counter service, not sit down places.  Bring in your own snacks and beverages (no glass).  Eat breakfast in your room (cereal, fruit etc) or find a hotel that offers breakfast stuff.  There are menus on here with prices to give you an idea of what you're looking at. 😁.   - Linzee  1045.9 #162 11:25AM
Bring your own food and drinks into the parks. It is allowed. And makes things so much nicer. We bring snacks, sandwiches, water, tea, Gatorade. We have an entire bag full of that stuff. Then when we feel like splurging we get a churro or popcorn and share it.  - Disneyfreak111  589.6 #315 4:54PM
I like to walk across the street to mcdonalds. Not always the healthiest choice but cheapest for sure. There is also a Dennys across as well - awind1984  3.3 #32012 6:21PM

its a combination of both. My dad, Fantasmic Fan1, has this Camera that has blue tooth and connects with his phone. So he can post on Mousewait after taking a very cool shot. :)  - Disneypirategirl  170.4 #2312 12:15AM
If your camera doesn't have that built in, most can take an eyefi card to talk to your phone, Nikon has a card/plug just for their cameras too. A lot of people are using phones too, but the cameras are so much  fun!  - secretagentangel  1555.5 #95 12:27AM
i’ve done both but a phone camera is the easiet but DSLR’s are beautiful.  - Plumiegirl  8842.9 #3 11:43AM
My two tips are don't over saturate picture using apps on your phone and don't use flash! With a good eye and some creative angles you can make great pictures without super fancy edits or cameras (though I do have a DSLR and have taken it to the park but carrying it around all day can get cumbersome... Especially if it's really hot. - missmimi90  1864.9 #76 11:47AM
