TheBearandtheBow's MouseWait
TheBearandtheBow 67.5 #4113 

I'm a mother of 2 from NM who loves anything and everything Disney. I would love to visit the parks more but being so far away makes it close to impossible. MouseWait is my Disney escape from the comfort of my home.

My husband is also the grumpy one. It's always too hot and never enough benches. We are going in November this year and I'm hoping he will be at least a tiny less grouchy while there. 

Send him over here to Alberta, we are getting frost tonight. He will start appreciating the heat ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ - bearlove  135.8 #2890 9:49PM

We went a couple Saturdays ago and it was in the low 100's...   the lifesaver for that trip was the Frogg Toggs we took and it's so easy to reactivate the cooling since all you need to do is to run it under water at the drinking fountains. We stayed cool all day long and it was totally manageable. I hope you all get to go and have fun! - Nala  375.6 #574 5:15PM

That is very special. To think your family has been enjoying the park for 60 years. I can't wait until my children get to share similar memories. This is why we should value our elderly!  

This is spectacular. ย This memory, all of the cherished memories with her, her life, and her dedication to her country is far more meaningful than anything I've seen bombarded on here the last couple of days. ย As I said to you before, you are so blessed to still have this wonderful lady in your life. ย What an absolute treasure she is and what an absolute treasure her legacy is for you and your family. ย Thank you for sharing this with us all. ย โค๏ธโค๏ธ - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 4:23PM
Thank you DisneyFanZoe๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’“ yes, it's a blessing she is still with us to share so many memories. One of the many things she said this week, as we were learning about her travels, military service, various jobs in the 1930's, the Great Depression, etc: "I'm not very well versed or educated, but I had an education of life. That's what I've had. Education of life."๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’“ - Alicewhoareyou  2221.7 #64 7:33PM
That's lovely and sometimes an education in life is far more valuable.  ๐Ÿ’• - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 8:23PM
Wow, you're so blessed! My mom was in the army air corps! She was a nurse in the flying unit. She's in Heaven, but so proud of her and your grandma! I have all my moms medals. I hope your grandma tells you any stories, I had my mom tell me a few. Great photo! - secretagentangel  2421.7 #53 11:34AM
So secretagentangel- it's possible they knew each other?!๐Ÿ˜ฑbecause she said she used to do some type of positioning of planes in an operations control room of the "Central Air Defense region". Where was your mom stationed? - Alicewhoareyou  2221.7 #64 9:30PM
It cod be, she would have been in a unit out if rothschester??(spelling) ny or back east I'll look it up when I'm home and dm you. She went on some scary missions but she had fun!  - secretagentangel  2421.7 #53 9:42PM
secretagentangel - my grandma was stationed in Philadelphia, and Florida for sure. Then settled in Ridgecrest at China Lake. - Alicewhoareyou  2221.7 #64 3:13PM
What a wonderful week you have had!  Happy birthday to your beautiful grandma! What a great life she has had. I can only imagine the stories. I love this picture. What a treasure. ๐Ÿ˜Š - MeridaFan  3626.4 #37 8:16PM

Pack some snacks for waits in lines. Especially if with kids. And don't forget the water. Disney gives free water but it's always a good idea to pack some. And be patient and respectful. 

Pack patience, visit City Hall and get a first visit button, drink lots of water, have so much fun! - ThinkTink23  44.0 #4840 10:52PM
Have fun! Get there early, use the fast pass system,  celebrating something? Ask for a free button at city hall! Stay hydrated. But most of all enjoy!  - anaggarciam  371.1 #583 11:08PM
Look for good food options ahead of time, since food is expensive, you'll want to spend money on something that tastes great and you really enjoy, rather than settling for something you dont like just because you cant find anything else. The instagram account "foodsofdisneyland" has great pictures of some of the best food. - QueenKayleen  0.3 #86422 11:16PM

4 and 5 year olds need strollers. They get tired quick and because they ate closer to the ground they tent to get stepped on or run over on busy nights. Like someone said before, I would choose whatever was most comfortable for u and ur kids. It doesn't matter the size, strollers can be hard to navigate on crowded nights. You will have to park the stroller to board trains though. Just tag it with   More...

Awesome! Love to see the kids perform. - carminaire  756.4 #237 11:56AM
They perform at 9:45 am. Potlatch Logger Band.  - Momof4girls1boy  4.0 #23408 2:55PM
Potlatch is going to be there?!  Wow!  That's awesome that a group from such a small town made the trip! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2412.0 #55 9:46PM
We have a double Bob and take it with us each time. Pushing a stroller through crowds doesn't matter what size it is can be hard at times but it's easier to push than  regular one so we don't mind. Whichever has the best storage and most comfortable for the kids and easy to push, I say pick that one.  - brodysmommy  414.8 #509 9:49PM
What about getting on the train or the monorail, is that a big pain?? - Momof4girls1boy  4.0 #23408 10:31PM
We don't ride the monorail except when we ride from inside the park and all the way around (we stay at a hotel across the street). So we always park it by autopia and leave it. For the train we just fold it up. We tend to put loose things in bags so it's easier for someone else to grab a bag while we fold the stroller up in the case we ride the train. Any type of stroller is a pain (in my opinion) to fold up for the train or monorail.  - brodysmommy  414.8 #509 2:16PM
Also, don't forget to bring all your own snacks and drinks. You can bring anything you want into the parks as long as it's Non-alcoholic and not in glass containers.  - Disneyfreak111  644.7 #294 10:56AM
I was under the impression no outside food was allowed so I was just going to bring empty water bottles. It would be a lot nicer to bring some snacks as well. Thanks - Momof4girls1boy  4.0 #23408 12:05PM
Yes we always bring our own water and soda and snacks for the kids! Saves tons of $ that way!!  - brodysmommy  414.8 #509 2:27PM
I used to bring a Bob revolution when my kids were still babies but then ended up bringing an umbrella stroller with shade and a little storage for my 3-4 year old. I preferred smaller. Remember not to leave anything valuable in your stroller storage. We like to park it and go on all the rides on the area, then grab the stroller to get to the next land. Once my principal/boss who is vegan had his Family's lunches stolen from their stroller. Just be careful with what you leave in there. - brigeet  449.6 #461 6:38AM
