My son doing some pin trading. The retainers on the pins drive me crazy. My kids keep losing them. Anyone have any tips.

Invest in locking pin backs. - missmimi90  2059.1 #91 7:58PM
This! I was forced to but these last month when one of my Kermit pins fell off my lanyard. Luckily I heard it fall on the ground and was able to find it.  - KermitFan13  658.1 #350 8:12PM
We bought some and they're great. - ima-pirateswife  847.5 #253 8:13PM
Locking backs are the best option, but in a pinch you can push the pin in a new spot along the thicker part and it will hold much better (hope that makes sense, hard to explain through type)! - Geekery  409.4 #605 8:13PM
Yeah I definitely agree the locking pins have been great for my wife am I.  We almost lost a pin and decided to make the investment right after.  A pack is about 8-9 dollars but you get like 10 backs so it easily pays for itself. - okmikeguy  140.1 #3031 8:26PM
It was suggested to us to go to Michaels/craft stores and buy screw on earring backs...cheaper and secure! - yellowtonka  244.7 #1528 8:56PM

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  17.4 #8579 7:15PM
You should be able to do ART I think. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.2 #49 7:54PM
Thanks for the replies BTW - jimbojohn  6.4 #16487 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  450.0 #542 10:50PM

When do the Halloween decorations start going up in Disneyland and is it all at once or does it take a while? Trip booked for end of September, hope to see some spookiness

Thanks for the info, that makes me happy but recently found out that the big thunder railroad won't be open by the time I get there. This makes me very sad:( - jimbojohn  6.4 #16487 10:04PM

Surprised to find that the jokes on the jungle cruise haven't changed in 26 years but that I also found them funny and enjoyed them all over again

Jokes never really change but never get old. - CxD_CM  518.6 #454 2:20PM
I always laugh at them! It's surprising how many don't tho :-) - msparrow  144.7 #2947 2:30PM

It's been 17 years since my last Disney visit. And my wife and 2 kids just got back last week and They absolutely loved it. This is my fourth visit and very nostalgic for me. I was excited to see all they same things I remember from my last visit as a kid and to now share them with my kids. I wish I could go every year. I was wondering how many on MW actually lives close enough to go on a regula  More...

There are a lot of MWers that go multiple times a week - BaseballMickey  8624.6 #14 1:40PM
Wow that would be like heaven . I live in Alberta, Canada. So that would cost me a small fortune. - jimbojohn  6.4 #16487 1:47PM
We try to go at least once a month except in the hot months of summer cause I don't like to melt..and to answer your question about the passes, they can be expensive but we are on the monthly payment plan and that helps make it more manageable for a family of 5.. Oh and very pretty princess you got there! - sallylovestwojacks  24.1 #7180 3:08PM
Thankyou, the bippity boppity boutique does a great job. - jimbojohn  6.4 #16487 3:31PM
