Looking for some advice on the best route to get to our character breakfast. We are staying at the tropicana hotel and have a character breakfast at the paradise pier hotel. What is the best, quickest least painful route with 3 small children. ( and cheapest)
Walking or Taxi.  - DisneylandMama87  17.0 #6791 7:15PM
You should be able to do ART I think. - MrsSchnooks  2703.4 #35 7:54PM
Thanks for the replies BTW - jimbojohn  6.4 #12512 10:30PM
Walking would be easy and fun because there are lots of sights along the way.  Go past the park main entrance into Downtown Disney.  Longer route is to walk all the way toward Disneyland Hotel but turn left at the path next to Earl of Sandwich which leads to Paradise Pier.  Shortcut is through Grand California Hotel's downtown Disney entrance, through the hotel lobby and out their front door.  Then just cross the street to Paradise Pier.  Both ways are fun but allow time for shopping & photo distractions along the way... - MabelMouse  101.9 #3349 10:50PM

Where is your favorite place for character breakfast? Going to take my daughter for her 1st birthday, with all the grandparents that have been to Disneyland in decades.
I haven't done a character breakfast yet but hear good things about the Minnie and friends in DL and at Goofy's Kitchen at the DL hotel.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2072.4 #55 3:37PM
I've never done a character breakfast but dinner at Goofy's Kitchen is great.  We go every trip.  I'm sure breakfast would be similar.  - Ldgsg  144.1 #2644 3:39PM
I love the Plaza Inn... It's so magical to be in Disneyland while having breakfast with the characters!! - DiamondInTheRough  345.2 #599 6:35PM
Minnie's won during our last trip (we did Goofys and Minnie). She saw way more characters at minnie. If you make reservations for an early entry day, you just to to gate 1 and tell them. You get in early too and don't have to use a magic morning. - warchanted  125.6 #2919 6:45PM

Question: photo pass plus! Does anyone know how much this cost at the park? We see that if we pre-order online, it's $169. Seems a bit high doesn't it? Thanks everyone!
I just preordered mine for upcoming October trip. I did this for the first time for our summer trip in June. It was worth it! Thanks to info. from folks on MW it was a great keepsake.  - BibbidiBobbidiBoo  43.9 #4520 8:49AM

Photopass Plus is 69.99 if ordered 14 days in advance.  I think the 169 price is for Disney World - kskating  578.5 #294 8:53PM
Thanks for the info!  - DCMAGurl  80.7 #3636 10:19PM
In Disneyland it's $100 so you save the $30 by preordering 14 days in advance. The $169 you're thinking of is the preorder price for Disneyworld  which I think in park there it's $200. It is well worth the $ because it includes all the pics the photographers take along with all the attraction pics & any character dining pics you may take. Also make sure to ask the photographers for "magic shots" they can add characters in the pics such as Tinkerbell, Stitch, Simba & others. We use one on every trip so I'm very familiar with them. - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1176.3 #112 6:56AM
It's been a while since I've been with my they still have the regular photopass option w/o the character dining and attraction pics?  Thanks. - MinnieMousewife  737.4 #212 8:04AM
MinnieMousewife yes they do. If you just get the regular photopass & then purchase the cd with all of the prints it's $60 so for $10 more you can preorder the plus - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1176.3 #112 8:19AM
That's a great deal to preorder it then!  Thanks for the info.  Now I have to remember to order it.  πŸ˜Š - MinnieMousewife  737.4 #212 8:42AM

At Haunted Mansion the other day, I ran into a fellow Mansioneer whom I'd met there before. He posts lots of HM pictures on his Instagram account, ROBY_999_. He was showing a CM three Coke cans. You see, Coke has some gimmick where each can says "Share a Coke with (random name)." Well, he had somehow managed to get three that had the hitchhiking ghosts' names on them, and he let me take a pic with  More...

Does anyone know when DL will be starting their Halloween decorating time?? I'll be there September 17-21, and I'm not sure if the parks will be closing early for the decoratings. I've been checking all kinds of websites but no official dates have been posted yet. If anyone has any info, please let me know!! Thanks!!
Your dates should work for seeing Halloween decorations.  Last year, the Mad T Party in DCA started their Halloween themed sets on Friday, Sept. 13th.  I'm assuming similar timing this year. - susieQzee  546.5 #312 6:42AM
P.S. Decorating occurs overnight, after guests leave.  They don't close early to do it.  The magic appears in the morning. - susieQzee  546.5 #312 6:44AM

Haunted Mansion typically closes late Aug to begin conversion to "Holiday" mode. I'm fairly sure the Parks will be in full "Halloween Time" atmosphere when you get here for your trip 9/17-9/21. - HARR_E  1602.0 #78 3:07PM

Disneys Fasspass program, read below
How to use Disney’s original Fasspass. Find the Fasspass distribution Center at select attractions. Insert your pass or ticket. Get a return time to return to the attraction. You must use it within the time frame , early or late will not be accommodated. The only time you can use your pass after the time frame is if the attraction is offline during your return time. You cannot hold more than one pass for the same attraction or another. Check you fp will let you see when you can get another pass usually within 2 hours or after you use your pass up whichever is sooner. RSR and world of color are not connected to the rest of the park so you can get additional passes at other locations. Fasspass is open for select times, dates and seasons. Fasspass work like this. Each ride can ride a certain capacity per hour example at full capacity lets say indy can ride 1,200 riders per hours –this is not the number ok, , so 1200 riders so say 10% of seats are reserved for fp so 120 seats are virtually held. When your ticket is issued a ticket you reserved one spot for that ride and keeps going until all passes are exchasted for the day, that is why as you look at the reserve board the time keeps moving up. And up unitl it reads-----, ------ meaning its all gone. I said original because we still use the original format in dl resort as newer versions of magic bands and fastpass + is in wdw although I personally like the version we have here. - pikarich  2689.0 #36 10:10AM
You can get one fast pass every two hours or the start time on your fast pass ticket, whichever is sooner. Always read all the info on the pass. If you're there in the morning and get a fast pass say for Indy. Return time is 9:30-10:30. The pass says next fast pass is available after 9:30am. I would go at 9:30, grab a fast pass for another attraction and then come back and ride Indy. Fast pass distribution is halted when the attraction is down since CMs don't know how long the attraction will be be closed. Distribution resumes with the opening of the attraction as long as there are fast passes left. The amount of fast passes available also depend on the ride capacity during the day (number of vehicles, etc).  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2072.4 #55 11:35AM
