hi MWers! It's been a while since i've posted buuut I wanted to drop a line and see if anyone has any tips, tricks or must sees for DGCH? Just booked for my Min's big 1-0 and I know HOJO is the official hotel of MW, and we stayed there last January and it was wonderful, i just wanted to go big for the bday! Ok so whatcha got for DGCH?

Hi! Welcome back! Maybe others know, but I don't know what DGCH is? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€” - misschurro  9883.7 #12 10:31AM
Disneyland Grand California Hotel?  I have never had the pleasure of staying there.  Let me know how you like it.  - PalousePrincess  27.8 #6800 10:37AM
Ahh! Thanks!! I do know that part of it is under refurbishment but that's about it. - misschurro  9883.7 #12 10:58AM
I don't really have any tips but I've stayed there many times and love the convenient location. When will you be there? There is a lot of construction going on now through the fall.  - PeppersGhost  428.8 #597 11:06AM
Have a great time!  So exciting  - LaPearleNoir  3139.3 #56 7:04AM
We prefer Disneyland Hotel. It's where we always stay. My sister prefers DGCH. But I think Disneyland Hotel is nicer. We love the fireworks/musical headboard. As a matter of fact we're there now!! - Ears2ya  28.6 #6715 7:11AM

Anyone ever done Dapper Day before? Thoughts? Tips? It's on my daughter big 1-0 this year, thinking we need to check it out

Definitely lots of fun. Dressing up really helps. It's so much fun to dress up. Done it for many years. It's crowded and more fun to people watch and socialize. If you book early enough through the Dapper Days website you can get rates I think around 50% off...so check that out.  It's grown from a few hundred people years ago to I heard around 17k people dressed up. Also a neat free convention with vendors and photo ops.  I have friends that bring kids around 10. My son is 8 and has been going for 3 years...loves dressing up for it. - DLKenCA  3613.1 #51 2:00PM
@JenGwen323 @grapesoda have, and many more.,They can probably help ya!  - misschurro  9883.7 #12 12:56PM

We made that are MW meet up weekend last year so we probably will be sure to and have things going on all weekend. We had fun some people just up some people didn't but it's fun looking at all the clothes and exhibits at the DLH!  - secretagentangel  13592.0 #9 2:03PM

hey mousewaiters! what's the foot traffic been like out there? thinking about taking a long weekend at DLR in August!

I am sure August will be busy as the Diamond Celebration comes to a close. Still a great place to visit if you have the opportunity. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  3659.9 #50 11:03PM

Not currently at the parks, but based on the crowd index and wait times the crowds seem quite manageable, especially compared to the last few months. This probably has to do with so many people showing up yesterday because of the closures of so many rides and attractions. Have you already surprised your mini with the good news? - NotReallyGrumpyBill  1060.8 #215 6:42PM

our tickets were delivered on Friday! We're going in January and my daughter has no clue..I'm busting at the seams but I refuse to tell her until we're in the airport!

It doesn't get better than a Disney trip surprise, have a wonderful time!πŸ˜ƒ - Nala  389.1 #669 9:32AM

hey mousewait fam! I just heard/read something kinda sad that i can't let myself believe; someone said costumes are no longer allowed to be worn in the parks? With BBboutique i can't imagine its true but i am wondering if anyone else heard this?

Unless it's issued BY Disney, I don't believe that's true. It would take so much ✨magic✨ away. - misschurro  9883.7 #12 6:56AM
Maybe they meant adults? The rule has been costumes are for guests 12 and under. But I have seen quite a few adults slip through. It's bc DLR doesn't want guests confusing those dressed up with the real characters πŸ˜‰ - misschurro  9883.7 #12 6:58AM

Hey mwers! Just booked our next trip to dlr staying on property for the first time ever! I was wondering what the difference is between Magic Morning amd Extra Magic Hour is? They seem the same to me 

They are the same. - DLKenCA  3613.1 #51 5:36PM
They are the same, but as far as I know the only way to get into California Adventure early is to stay on property - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3277.7 #55 5:39PM
Lol that's what I thought. We were there im December and hotel guests were crawling all over the place before the rest of ua could get in. I was hoping to be one of those lucky ones. Thank you @DLKenCA - lorelaismom  15.8 #9247 5:41PM

Has anyone gotten the kids power pack? Is offered a lot around the park? Is it worth it or should I just bring snacks?

I get it for my kid and just break it up into snacks throughout the day. - madsdad  1868.2 #109 12:36PM
I have eaten it--it's perfect for when I'm hungry, but don't want a huge meal or a sugary /fatty snack.  Your own snacks are probably more cost effective, but if you will have to pay for a locker to store them, then it's a wash.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  713.6 #333 12:48PM
Oh and if I remember right, it's available at quite a few counter service places in both parks - Spoonful_O_Sugar  713.6 #333 12:50PM
yes we buy it for my daughter melyssa since she is allergic to almost all food offerings at the park this is perfect for her, a fruit, fish crackers, a yogurt , milk/juice/water your choice, carrots and apples. its a healthy snacks for the kids and not bad on its price and you cn get an ap discount on it - pikaplaid  8121.7 #16 1:58PM

I can't figure out how to post a photo! The mini and I received the first 5 day park hoppers for our slowly but surely up coming trip and I wanted to show em off but I can't. What do I do? Message support? This will realy get in the way of posting live pics soon :(

Are you trying it from a computer? You can't post from computers only mobile - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3277.7 #55 3:23PM
I can post from iPhoto if I move pictures to my desktop.  - Midasgold  633.3 #376 4:16PM
