My maiden name is Wirtanen (it's Finnish) and as a kid no one could pronounce it correctly so we always said 'Wirtanen, like we're tannin' at the beach' but as an adult - I would rather tan at Disneyland lol  - WirTANenAtDisney  131.6 #2988 4:49PM
Do you mind if I asked what that sounds like phonetically?   I'm guessing Vurtannin? - Butterlina  1565.1 #103 4:52PM
Sorry I'm nosy and like sounds.   - Butterlina  1565.1 #103 4:53PM
In Finland yes the W makes. v sound, but in America we use the W as a W. So it's pronounced just like 'were tannin' at Disney :) - WirTANenAtDisney  131.6 #2988 4:53PM
Wheertehnon? - Butterlina  1565.1 #103 4:54PM
Ah.  Thank you.  I m odd and line the sounds of voice.  - Butterlina  1565.1 #103 4:55PM
Also I'm just odd.   - Butterlina  1565.1 #103 4:55PM
Nkt weird at all! I like to know how things sound as well. It's easier then it seems. That's why we came up with the phrase 'were tannin' at the beach' as kids to help people say it correctly.  - WirTANenAtDisney  131.6 #2988 5:11PM
I love your story!  WirTANenAtDisney  And I have often wondered about it, too. So, thanks to HandMeAChurroImmaFaint For asking! - MeridaFan  4176.4 #33 5:19PM

It's always hot at Disneyland, hence the tan - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1859.8 #89 5:46PM

It's just a play on words from my childhood basically. Thanks everyone! And I do always love a good Disney tan haha - WirTANenAtDisney  131.6 #2988 6:51AM

So we bought 4 tickets to the Halloween Party on Halloween this year and now are in need of a 5th, but the party is sold out for that night. What are the chances one of you lovely MWrs has an extra I could buy from you?? I would love you forever and ever and ever and ever!!!

I was just informed by my mother in law at my mini was chosen as Citizen of the Day today in Disneyland and had a special spot in the parade! I crying because I was not there to see this amazingly cool thing!

How special! I bet your mini is thrilled. I know it's hard to miss our kids doing special things but think of it in a different way. Because you are not there your mini is able to tell you all about it. You will get to hear the excitement in his/her voice and learn exactly what it was that made it special to your mini. The best part is that you will be there to listen and your mini will learn that his/her mom is truly interested in what your mini has to say. What a great way to keep building a relationship of communication with your mini. Have fun with you mommy/mini time.ย  - Bassplayerswife  446.1 #476 11:13AM
Thank you, I needed that pep talk! I just feel so sad I missed such a special thing. And I wish I had a picture or something, my MIL isn't a good picture taker lol but you're right, it will be special when he tells me about it! - WirTANenAtDisney  131.6 #2988 11:18AM

Hi! So what is everyone's opinion on the Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party? We changed our trip from Nov to Oct and we are wondering if it will be worth it to spend another $75-80 a piece to go to the halloween party one night. Any insight you can give would be helpful!! Thanks!

I went for my birthday last year (it was my first). I would say GO! It was fun to see all of the adults dressed up too, and be able to be part of a different kind of Disney. It was quite busy the night we went, and the character greets were REALLY long๐Ÿ™€, but I enjoyed the experience! It's actually a forever happy memory in my mind because it was just me and my hubby. My hubby is a big Grumpy guy (6'4", 280lbs) and the went trick or treating to each station just for me for my brithday without even a grumble...this is how I know that he loves me more (don't ever tell him I said that)๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1340.3 #126 10:08AM
I've been 4 years in a row, and my husband says the party is the best (and he's not a dl fan). Definitely go! - tipytoz  5.5 #16686 3:24PM
I think it's worth the money. Besides the fun of trick or treating you get alot of photo opportunities with the characters. And the Halloween light show is cool. - makeitbluesaysmerriwether  59.5 #4364 9:09AM
I took my family last year and it was AWESOME!!!  So Awesome we are going again this year!! - st8countyfire  44.8 #4884 10:17PM
IT IS SOOOOOOO WORTH IT!!!!!  So much fun!!!!!!  And all of the really great Villians come out during the party that are hard to find (if ever) during the regular park hours!!! - valj84DisneyDeppAddict  250.1 #1326 3:30PM
