Hi Everyone! My little brother is attending grad night this year. I have never been and know Disney tends to change how they handle the event. Could you please tell me how they handle security checks? Also, are the students able to transfer between the Parks and Down Town Disney during normal buisness hours or are they restricted to a certain area? Any other advice or tips are welcomed. Thank you   More...

I went the last year that it was in Disneyland. Although I enjoyed myself, it was a little weird. The whole nightclub atmosphere almost didn't feel disney to me. I also had little tolerance for everyone my age. So being in a park with exclusively high schoolers gave it a different atmosphere, too. During normal park hours, we were allowed to hop back and forth between the parks and downtown Disney. At the time that Grad Night was advertised to start is when we could stay in disneyland only.  From what I remember, security was the same they just looked a little more thoroughly than usual. And it just depends on the school and their rules on what time they leave the park and all that. DO THE SPECIAL GRAD NIGHT EVENTS. including the private show(ours was Fantasmic so I assume it's world of color now) and the grad night fireworks. (Or world of color? Haha) meet other people from different schools! I hope it's fun this year! I couldn't hang on my trip. I fell asleep on Main Street bench πŸ˜‚  - PracticallyPerfectKaila  33.8 #5400 7:25AM
I like you. I never went to my gradnight for the same reasons.  - philliprocks  1208.0 #138 8:29AM
Hi! So the grads are allowed to park hop and go into DTD during normal business hours. Once that time comes around for Grad Nite to officially start (either 10 or 11pm), they have to go over to DCA for the remainder of their night/morning. Not sure if the security checks are different, but there's defiantly a security precense throughout the whole night.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7257.3 #9 12:25PM
I went in 1976 I'm sure it's changed ALOT since then!  Lol Great memories!   - happygma2  57.7 #98 6:23AM

As Christmastime comes to a close at the resort, I cant help but wondering, what happens to the gingerbread houses. Does Disney bring in heavy machinery to lift them to a location and then smash them? Does anyone have an idea?

I used to work in Lost and Found. Yes, try. We get many sunglasses, hats, cell phones, clothes...you name it. Although I would check tomorrow. Sometimes we get things brought in that day like wallets but other items if lost on a ride we don't get until the next morning after the ride has closed and the CM do the walk through.  - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1035.8 #169 1:57PM

***UPDATE*** I just called the ticket office and they told me that as soon as you sign the contract, you will be billed 2 days later. Whether the pass is active at the time or not. The only way to not pay before you can use the renewed pass, it to renew it on the day it expires. Mystery solved. Thank you all for the help! Hi everyone. I have an AP question for you all. I recently upgraded and r  More...

So your new upgraded pass will be 1/2/2015-1/2/2016?? Β Maybe they're charging you to upgrade until 1/2 then...have you figured out the math on it and does that work out? - MinnieMousewife  895.9 #193 11:44AM
You should be able to use your upgraded pass now I did the same thing a few years ago the upgraded pass cancelled out the old one expiration dates are still the same  - piecesofeight  48.9 #4662 12:12PM
They told me that the upgrade for the renewal will go into effect Jan 2nd. - GodOfWine  488.2 #412 1:09PM
Whatever date you renew/upgrade becomes your new billing cycle date regardless of when your pass expires. I just did the same thing and my billing cycle changed to the date I renewed instead of what it was when I last renewed - thatgirljenn  1617.6 #98 12:27PM
This πŸ‘† - Melody_CM  7608.1 #8 12:35PM
So as long as you renew before it expires, you will always have your first payment before you actually have access to the pass? - GodOfWine  488.2 #412 1:13PM
You have access to your pass as soon as you receive the confirmation email of your new contract but yes they take the payment first. - thatgirljenn  1617.6 #98 3:59PM
I paid for the pass at the ticket booths, so I don't think I get a confiration email. I did sign the monthly contract form though. - GodOfWine  488.2 #412 11:21PM
I would call to verify, as others have mentioned. I started paying for my Premium pass back in December of 2013, and first used it on June 22 of this year, but of course we're talking about two different things... - CVDisneyland  406.1 #525 12:15PM
I went to upgrade mine on Dec 14 and mine didn't expire until Dec 21st. If I did it then, they would debit out the first payment the next day. Essentially I paid off my current pass in November so they are charging the first month payment the day I renew, if it's before or on my actual expiration date. If I didn't renew, there would be no December payment withdrawn because I had paid it off at that point  - wickedale  421.7 #496 1:10PM

Hi everyone! Are there any Android users out there that have/had issues with posting pictures in the lounge? Every time I attempt, I get sent back to the dashboard. Has anyone been able to fix this? I am running on the latest app update.

Un install and reload mw, or go back to the dashboard and reenter the app, what is are you running, i know some version are having issues - pikarich  4747.1 #24 7:31PM
I uninstalled and re downloaded and re-signed in. It still jumps from a posting page to the annual passport page. I am running it on the s4. II'm not sure the os number - GodOfWine  488.2 #412 8:23PM
If you can get to the main page and click on the three ba r s on the top left to go to the main menu scroll all the way to the bottom and click the support button to report the issue, be detail and let them know the phone model, fyi they get tons of emails and may take a while to ge t back to y ou or it gets fixed in the process, so don't take it personally if they don't respond back, in the mean time you can also follow mw on the pic or if allowed on your phone until then, hope this helps - pikarich  4747.1 #24 8:39PM
I didn't want to bother admin, I know he is very busy.  But it sounds like I might have to.  Thank you so much for the help!  - GodOfWine  488.2 #412 8:51PM
Your welcome and it not a bother, the email is sent to admin and a support staff for the app that helps resolve issues, I learned that a while ago, I thought it was all him but he has support for this and if issues aren't reported they are not able to fix it and it might be affecting multiple people - pikarich  4747.1 #24 8:55PM
Unfortunately, the samsung galaxy phones are built with a code or skin around the phone's code.  so admin has to build code to pierce through this skin which slows down the phone and robs battery as it processes. and the phone gets stuck a lot because of this skin too.  I have tried doing everything to use mw on the droid, but the best for me has been uninstall it from the play store, then download the amazon ap store ap and then download mw from that ap.  it is the older version but it does help me better right now.  hope that helps, I have a lot of problems with aps on the galaxy so I won't be getting another one. hope that helps. - secretagentangel  2424.1 #53 12:45AM

I've been having this problem for oh, 2 years. I think I've been able to successfully post 1 pic out of about 50 attempts in Disneyland Real-Time land. I do have better luck posting in Disneyland Talk land for some reason, though.Β  Like 1 pic every 4 attempts get through there. - Grindcore  538.3 #368 12:03AM

Hi Everyone! Happy Sunday. As I am job searching, I keep thinking how terrible it would be to live further than driving distance from Disneyland. So it got me thinking. If Disney were to build another park in the US, where would you vote for it to be? Assuming there was a voting option.

As much as I want one in my back yard, the weather is too hot most of the year.  (Could do a water park though). But I don't think there is any other place in the US that would work.  The weather in SoCal is perfect year round.  (And it's only 5 hours for me!πŸ˜‰) - AZDisney  610.4 #316 5:36PM

I saw this during my last visit while in line for the Matterhorn. Does anyone know what thr VR stands for and what exactly this animal might be?

I tried a couple quick google searchers yesterday and couldn't find anything T_T   I'm going to try to remember to ask my CM friend (she loves random Disney trivia!) - dethrizu  301.1 #864 9:29AM
I googled it, and it has to do with Switzerland flags and Coat of Arms. Here is a summary of this shield: The flag is based on that of the Abbot of St. Gallen, who was the feudal lord of Appenzell until 1403. The flag of the abbey showed a bear on a yellow field, and the independent territory Appenzell changed the field to white for its own flag. Before its independence, Appenzell had a flag of a bear marchant (on all fours) on a honeycombed field, attested from 1377.Appenzell split into its two half-cantons as a result of the Swiss Reformation, in 1597. The "VR" in the Ausserrhoden flag stands for Vssere Rhoden. - Sugarbuzz  227.7 #1592 10:13AM

@Beatlemike...ummm yah, a lot of red in some strategic places. ;D - Sugarbuzz  227.7 #1592 1:41PM
It's by the Matterhorn? This same crest was on the Skyway station in Fantasyland. I figured the VR stands for Von Roll, the Skyway's manufacturer from Switzerland. - BeatleMike  635.3 #301 10:31AM
Yeah it's in line on the left station right before you get on. I'll have too keep a look out for the one on the Skyway Station. Thanks for the info! - GodOfWine  488.2 #412 2:14PM
