Going to be staying at the GC for the first time in November for 5 days!!!! Soooo excited!! Does anyone have any tips or must do's for my stay with my two daughters? Again.... Soooo excited!!!

Tips for Staying at the Grand; Do not chase your friend in a domo costume around the lobby in your banana costume when its nowhere close to Haloween.2)When waking up, open the window and TAAAAAKAAAAA as loud as you can 10 times until somebody opens their window and stares at you.3)Estaban is a great bartender at Heathsone and makes me happy4)Dont annoy the lifeguards by jumping down the waterslide headfirst....You will get a shout out5) if you pass out in the loby and are not staying at the hotel. they will wake you up and leave by 2am6)Napa rose is open from 5to107) There are three hidden lounges but dont ask me about that, its kinda late8) The loby echos so they actually encourage you to yell as loud as you can or make animal noises9)Joe is a good bartender10) I like Dick at the Grand Entrance, he is a jolly old guy11)If its cold get corn chowder from Hearthstone but dont drink a lot of milk with it 12) There is a gift shop but its lame13) Nachos are good at white water and you can feed the baby honey badgers from that point14) The statues and vases in the lobby are all nailed to the ground15) You can valet..one time my friend left her car there for 3 days and wasnt staying there16) Dont talk to the piano player while he is playing or he might stab you with his eyes17)They have odd characters at brekfast from a movie I have never seen18) no bottles in the water19)Its always like 65 in the lobby..I think they do that because they dont want people hanging out and sleeping or making out on the couches20) They dont have pay per view21) There is a terrible movie short about duffy and it makes me puke - Dave  12078.5 #2 11:07PM

Purple potato wedges from carnation cafe so goooooood

I had some of those in SF at the Weston. It was a dinner for my hubby's work, and let's say most of them don't get out much. A lot of the guys thought their potato had gone bad because it was purple. I was quite entertained while eating my "rotten" potato.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  635.7 #269 2:57PM

**Castle photo tips** Here is the setting CM Jim told us to use for night photos in front of the castle (as explained in my previous post). This is on our Canon DSLR, on Manual. I am a level 0 photographer, so I was grateful for the tip! It worked great for us, but maybe others would tweak it a bit. He said that this is best because they project blue on the castle....something like that πŸ˜„

**Possible helpful photo tip** On Monday night my husband and I went to get a photo in front of the castle before the fireworks started (maybe 30mins or so before?). The castle was already roped off, which is great because no one else gets in the photo...but the BEST part was CM Jim! He had a little portable studio light that he used to help light people up enough to take a nice photo with your ph  More...

#News- Starting August 5th, the Carthay Circle Restaurant will start a new tour that will give guests the chance to learn about the history of the theater and its connections with the Company. This tour will only be offered once a day, starting at 10:30am, and the meeting point will be in front of the restaurant.

Went on the tour today. It was pretty cool. Just show up before 10:30 in the front of Carthay Circle. You'll see a sign for the tour. It is free and lasts about 15 minutes. If you get a chance to go, you'll enjoy it and learn neat stuff. I'll post pics in a bit. - JediKitty  715.1 #228 7:52PM

#News. Save the date: Who wants to be in the new Soarin video shown during the attraction?!? On the evening of March 12th, 2014, Imagineering will fly an HD Omnimax camera in a helicopter over and around the resort area for several hours capturing the best nighttime shots for the attraction’s new finale. The re-launched Soarin’ The World would then debut in 2015 as part of DL's 60th Anniver  More...

I am so glad that this is no longer a rumor anymore I have been telling people for 3 years that it was going to be redone as Sorain the World and was beginning to lose faith...This just goes to show you how long things at WDI can sit without being done but it makes sense to me now. Why take an E ticket attraction out of a park with only 3 at that time during the redo of DCA...all about timing and TDA is planning this perfectly. As you all know during the 60th most of the attention will be at Disneyland but they are doing quite a bit to make sure that the crowds balance out well and this is just one of the first things we are to hear about on how they are playing a crucial balancing act for that year...I expect record crowds that summer above and beyond anything we have all seen at both parks...quote me on that - Dave  12078.5 #2 11:59PM
