Booked valentine's dinner at Wine Country Trattoria! we've done the WOC dining package there a couple years ago but have never had regular dinner there. Does anyone have any suggestions? The braised beef ravioli sounds good, has anyone tried it? :-)

Hi everyone! I'm thinking about running my first Disney marathon this year and was wondering if AP holders get discounts on registration?

No discount but AP holders can sign up a few days before everyone else can  - disneyland4me  245.1 #1300 10:31AM

Question :-) I know the holiday season ends January 6 at Disneyland but is some of the Christmas decor still up that following weekend between the 9th-11th? hubby and I are hoping to make it to the parks again while the Christmas decor is still in tact. thanks!

I do believe that Haunted Mansion Holiday is still open until the 11th however, I do believe they take those decorations down nearly overnight. So while there may be christmas layover, I'm not so sure you'll see decorations. Maybe @BaseballMickey_CM @IDVandalSkipperCM or another CM might know - missmimi90  1584.9 #87 11:06AM

CM_Shadowgamer?  Do you know? - IDVandalSkipperCM  2277.9 #52 12:41PM
Everything gets taken down fast.vey little is left. The last of the holidays that's last until the last bit of Jan is small world which stays open as small world holiday,  one year it was still that till feb. - pikarich  3337.1 #31 11:35AM
Usually everything is taken down by the 7th or so. Basically what @pikarich said - BaseballMickey_CM  6482.1 #12 1:42PM

Has anyone gone to the parks the weekend right before Thanksgiving?? Trying to decide whether to go during the avengers marathon weekend or the following weekend which will be the weekend before thanksgiving. which weekend will be less crowded?? lol thanks in advance!

I know it's frustrating, but the crowd levels have shifted considerably in the last couple of years--so much so that it seems like even people who visit several times a week are caught off guard sometimes.  It will be crowded both weekends (run weekends are always busy and many schools take the whole week off for Thanksgiving).  I am not sure that there's any way to know exactly which one will be worse--I wish I had better answers for you!  We have started going into every trip with the mindset that it will just be crowded and we have worked out ways to circumvent the busiest times in the parks, in order to make the most of our days.  Arrive at rope drop, and go on all your "must-do attractions in the first few hours. Take a break midday, and come back to have dinner and watch a show, and maybe try to get a few fast passes.  When things feel awful, sit down and have a cup of tea/coffee or hop on the train and circle around to regroup.  Good luck!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  561.6 #315 3:40PM
Oh, also: take note of when parades and shows are going to be ending, and plan on avoiding those areas until things calm down.  Fireworks from IASW are lovely, and if you jet over to the Toontown train station as they end, it's a much less stressful situation than trying to walk through the Hub.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  561.6 #315 3:42PM
That was very helpful, thank you!  - LennaH  149.9 #2588 3:58PM
You're welcome!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  561.6 #315 4:17PM
And keep to the right, hang on yo each other and walk briskly with the crowds, using shortcuts whenever you can. And if it gets too crowded, sit away from the crowd and let one person be your runner for fast passes and food!  If all law fails, go to a show or dinner! - secretagentangel  1322.0 #104 10:45PM
Sorry I would edit but sometimes it seems like there aren't any laws in crowds!! - secretagentangel  1322.0 #104 10:46PM
Oh yes the keep to the right, walk single file, and pass on the left is so important!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  561.6 #315 10:48PM
I would think the weekend before would be better than the weekend of thanksgiving   Any weekend there is an event is packed - DeneciePie  327.5 #681 2:53PM
We went last year on Sunday during T- weekend. I remember how empty is seemed and we were surprised about no crowd. - Sleepingbeautysmom  298.3 #834 10:37PM
That's the great thing about going into a trip expecting crowds: it feels like such a treat if it ends up the crowds are light!  Win-win.  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  561.6 #315 10:50PM
Last year Saturday wasn't bad but Sunday and Monday got crazy - Disneyprincessvmk  46.9 #4526 10:57PM

Hi everyone! I have a quick Disney-related question. I was thinking of buying a bunch of disney gift cards to use as spending money in the parks for our upcoming trip. But can you use the gift cards for everything, including food? Has anyone done this before?

That's what we do, but we get them when we arrive at the parks. We buy two or three in large amounts to use for the trip, because it makes it easier than tracking 5,000 transactions on our debit card lol. Every place in the parks takes them, including the carts.  Not sure about parking, but I would assume they do.  For us, it is a great way to stay in budget and not come home to 3 pages of bank transactions. - Thumper13  427.1 #449 10:35AM
Also, every time you use it, the remaining balance will show at the bottom of your receipt. - Thumper13  427.1 #449 10:37AM
we have used them for food at the parks restaurants, not sure about the food carts. - snowgrey  5.6 #14940 10:16AM
I have seen posted on here that at SAMs Club there was a 3 pack of $50's for $142.98 - HatBox  5.2 #16017 12:10PM
We do the same. There are a few shops (like the magic shop, crystal shop, etc) that won't accept them because they are contracted shops and not Disney. - wannahockaloogie  157.3 #2483 1:41PM

#food: has anyone eaten the dinner buffet at Storytellers Cafe? how is it?

Yes! It is wonderful! ! - HauntedMansionDiva  282.4 #941 10:50AM
It's good, there's a chowder that everyone raves about, if I remember correctly.  You can get ice cream, but I think you have to ask for it.   - bluefairy  643.3 #263 10:50AM
Stay there ever time we go but have never eaten there.  On my bucket list!! - Luv-Mickey  25.9 #5741 11:08AM
