Definitely a sweater for at night and inside buildings. I'm always freezing. One summer trip I wasn't thinking about it and had to buy a blanket.... Which ended up being a snuggy I was so cold I just grabbed the first "blanket" I saw haha πŸ˜‚

I always have a sweater just in case. I freeze indoors. When is your trip?  - JenGwen323  1677.9 #89 9:54AM
I see now. This week! πŸŽ‰ It's hot now. I don't need the sweater at night now, but still like it indoors.  The heat we socals complain about will feel great to you. πŸ˜‚ sunny, high 80's cool breeze, no humidity.  - JenGwen323  1677.9 #89 9:57AM

Checked the Weather Channel app and next week should be mid 80's all week. Californians do not know REAL humid. We are so spoiled with great weather. But I always tie a light sweatshirt around my waist or jam one in a backpack for cooler nights, and inside buildings. Ariel's ride in DCA is deliciously cool πŸ’¨on a hot dayπŸ”₯, but can feel freezing after a few minutes!  - MommyandBash  92.2 #3585 11:04PM

I know it's hard to shrug off the negative comments. I posted info from an article once thinking the information was new, but the date on the article was from last year.

My 5 year old has an AP and won't go on most of the rides mentioned. Parent swaps are great. I think it's Normal for a child that age to not like those. My 7 and 9 year old just started liking them. We never force them on anything they don't want to do. Besides pirates πŸ˜‚

Buy her a pass to Knott's....she'll be begging to come back to Disneyland!  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - DisneyDavidEMT  2280.1 #56 9:20AM
Maybe she'd enjoy DL more if she were allowed to pick the attractions? Sounds like she's being coerced into riding what the adults want to go on. You mentioned several attractions that she does like, why not make those the focus?  - Atora  2668.6 #42 7:38AM
Honestly, I feel like these trips should be about her. If you want to go on specific attractions, perhaps solo trips, or trips with friends, sans kids, may be more appropriate. I feel like you are setting yourself up for disappointment when you are trying to weight the trip in your favor, rather than in your granddaughter's. I know this sounds harsh...but you might find more pleasure in these trips if you focus on creating magic for her. - Atora  2668.6 #42 9:28AM
I agree with this. She's still a young child. Not every young kid wants to ride Star Tours and Soarin all the time. Heck I know adults that won't go near either. Maybe she has a fear of darkness? Heights? Loud sounds? If you bring young ones the focus will and should be on what they want to do. You can come without the kid, the kid can't experience any of it without the adult, if that makes any sense. - missmimi90  1974.3 #70 9:42AM
missmimi90 Brings up a good point--she might have a bit of a fear or even be getting a touch of motion sickness, but not know how to communicate it.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  592.3 #320 9:46AM
Great points missmimi90 and Spoonful_O_Sugar! I'm an adult who loves thrill rides, but can not handle Star Tours. 😷 - Atora  2668.6 #42 10:23AM
She does pick. She's never been coerced into anything.  - FairyGrandmother  292.0 #902 5:09PM
I think there are some people who don't like a lot of rides. A friend of mine took her daughter when she was around age 3 and she wanted to meet all the characters, so that is mostly what they did. My kids have been a few times and we try to introduce them to a new thing or two each time. They still have never been on Alice or the dark rides in fantasyland. Haunted Mansion is one of my favs but they won't do it yet. They have been on jungle cruise but can't appreciate the awesome jokes yet. We don't have a pass so only get to go once a year ish, so maybe what helps us is talking about what we all want to do and see and what we might try that is new on our next trip. Even with a pass and going more frequently, maybe that would help her? - LookSomethingShiny  16.0 #7643 12:46PM
Thank you all for your input. I think a few people didn't understand what my post was about. I don't always express myself very well in writing. So it might be my fault. I have my own pass. I go alone and I participate in meetups. I've never not had a good time. This isn't grandma trying to get a four year old to do only what grandma wants. My mini seems to have fallen into a rut. Rides she has enjoyed, like Pirates, she doesn't want to go on anymore. She's not interested in jungle cruise any more either. She loves haunted mansion and wants to go on it all the time. I just think she'd have more fun sometimes if we had others to go with. We mix things up too. Parades, rides, shows...  We throughly enjoy our visits, they are very special for both of us.  - FairyGrandmother  292.0 #902 5:45PM
