Can someone tell me about the Disneyland Halloween party? Do they close Disneyland early for the party? Why should I spend the extra $$$ to go? If I am already visiting that day will they kick us out if we don't have a party pass?
Tons of candy, safe trick or treating for kids, Cadaver Dans singing, and you can wear costumes. Yes worth it. Yes, park closes early for non- wristbanded guests. - Alicewhoareyou  954.2 #150 12:54PM
Yes they close DL early and if you do not have a wristband for the Hallowern party, you have to leave. You can enter the party 3 hours before it starts, so if it's from 7-12, you can go in at 4. It's extra money but it's worth it. You get candy, get to dress up, fun food and the line rides are not long. There is also a Hallowern parade, awesome fireworks, characters dressed up differently and great entertainment. It's worth the money. - SquirtFromTheEAC  6.7 #11924 12:56PM

What the heck is going on the weekend of October 17th thru 19th? All my usual hotels are booked solid. I even asked for the most expensive suite (not that we could afford it, but if my parents stay with us we could) and all suites are booked too. So, what is happening that weekend? Should we beg off and go a week earlier?
We will be there the same time & booked our room & flight months ago. That time of year there are the Halloween parties. Also in Utah our kids have a 4 day weekend then so lots of us come to play - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1160.0 #113 3:35PM

I haven't read that there's anything special going on, but it just seems like that time of the year has gone from low season to high season with all the Halloween parties and local AP holders. ย I like the fall festivities, but I do kinda miss our fall trips to DL without super crowds. ย  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  518.7 #335 4:21PM
I think right now the two weeks  in the fall that are the slowest seem to be two weeks after Halloween. But then you miss out on Some Halloween and I don't think that Christmas is up yet either. But if you're looking for low crowds I think that's  about the best time I can think of. Or figure out how to know the weather and go only on rainy days!!!!!! - secretagentangel  1235.6 #101 5:06PM

I wish I could wiggle my nose and be at DL. Instead I have to get on a plane Tuesday morning and I HATE FLYING. I made sure I had enough Xanax to make the flight less awful. But after a short 1-1/2 hour flight and we will be in LA.
Just think of the good things waiting at the end of the flight! - redsoxcarlos  960.8 #149 9:26PM

My husband and I are going to celebrate our 11th anniversary at Disneyland...without our kids! I am looking forward to trying out some of the nicer restaurants and not having to worry about bathroom breaks or needing to bring a stroller and half a ton of snacks.
Happy anniversary! Have a wonderful kidless day at the parks! - WhatTiggersDoBest  247.8 #1238 7:16PM
My husband and I are planning to do the same thing next month for our 18 th anniversary. Of course, our kids will be upset with us. - minniemonika  72.1 #0 7:25PM
It sure is a different feeling but you do miss the storage space you have in the stroller - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1160.0 #113 7:54PM

Day 4 of 5 in the parks in the books. The kids are having a blast and behaving so well, especially considering they usually go to bed by 7:30pm every night and this week they have been up until 10pm on average.

Ssssshhhhhh....we decided to book a room at Paradise Pier for our upcoming DL trip and the kids have NO CLUE! This will be our first, and possibly last, onsite stay because I am cheap. But I cannot wait to surprise them next week! And we booked a room with a view of DCA too.
Have fun! - BombFrogCM  682.8 #228 7:39AM

I hope posting this is ok, technically it is Disney related. A really good friend of mine, who is a CM at Epcot for Test Track, was diagnosed with an extremely rare cancer last week. Like 100 cases per year for adults. She is the mom to two little boys and married. She is the sole moneymaker in her house and her oldest has Autism and seizures. She is the sweetest woman and loves making magic for   More...
Prayers for her and her family.  - bks4lou  103.7 #3307 7:24PM

What are some best places to eat at both parks? I told my husband I want us to try some different places this time. We never deviate from our usually.
We like to have lunch at the Harbor Galley. They gave great baked potatoes and bread bowl soups.  Across from HM. - AZDisney  598.0 #283 7:30AM
Yes! I love the baked potatoes. - JenGwen323  1098.5 #128 8:46AM

I miss the broccoli and cheese baked potato. I don't even go there since they took it away - Tom  6408.4 #9 11:32AM
Bengal Barbecue is my favorite, but hopefully some foodie people will chime in here! - zenderella  408.7 #461 9:14PM
Paradise Garden Grille if you want something that doesn't feel very theme-parky food.  They have yummy skewers and gyros there, mostly a Mediterranean feel to the food.  Very yummy. - Sarafina  425.7 #438 12:02PM
Thanks for all the recs! Two weeks from tomorrow we hit the road at O-dark-thirty for the 8 hour drive down from NorCal, I plan to use that time to plan out our new eating destinations. - jnshenry01  10.5 #8701 1:09PM

20 days until we return to DL!!! This time we are not surprising the kids, like our December trip, and it will be our first ever trip without other family/friends going with us. I am so excited for just the 5 of us to spend 4-5 days at the parks. We may also spend a day at magic mountain on our way down since we have Six Flag AP's too.
Let the countdown begin - MinnieMyLove  132.3 #2815 9:49PM

Less then 2 months until we are back at DL. I told the boys that Space mountain and Indy will be closed when we are there. They are sad but said at least Pirates and Ca Screaming will be open. Love their mindset.

Looking for feedback on a hotel. I booked us in to the Ramada Maingate. Yay or Nay on this hotel? I have two other hotels held incase this one is a dud.
If it is the one that I am thinking of, Nay. - Lelundrial  458.1 #399 1:55PM

We stayed there about 8 years ago. I thought it was good. The only reason we haven't been back is we get the double rooms, which they don't have, and the single rooms are always more than at desert inn so we stay there instead. But really, you're just looking for something to sleeps and shower in right?! So it'll be fine. It's not a 5 star hotel but it was nice I thought  - brodysmommy  332.1 #636 2:07PM

I wore flip flops last week since I was walking around for 4 days 36 weeks prego! My feet were too swollen for shoes and hurt too. And I just walked slow behind the family and double stroller we had. So you can do it! - brodysmommy  332.1 #636 8:40AM

We are planning to buy APs for our trip, since we plan to go at least two more times in the next 10 months!!! Anyway, can I just buy them at one of the ticket kiosks the night we arrive, so the day before we go into the parks? Or would I be better off to buy them online?
Purchasing them in person is better in my opinion.  - DisneyDork95  206.2 #1770 4:51PM
I agree, it also eliminates the worry that the passes might not arrive on time for your trip.  - Donaldfan_532  230.3 #1455 6:43PM
Either way works. - sawman911  657.3 #246 5:57PM
Kiosk, definitely!!! Renewing and purchasing online has always posed problems for me. Even the CMs at the kiosks recommend going there instead of online. Have fun!!! โœจ - sarahnimal  223.6 #1532 6:57PM
