I taught summer school an just had a wOoping 1.5 weeks off. I start this Thursday, but already had trainings and have been planning on my time off. But when my students ask me what I did this summer, I'll say "One word: Disneyland." haha! Off to change some lives! 
Well as a mom who dislikes being in a classroom of other people's unruly children I am grateful for every unpaid minute and all the patience you wonderful teachers have. Blessings to an awesome new school year to you MW teachers! - 559MickeyLover  296.9 #805 12:57AM

Can't be picky when ur on a budget. I worked my butt off to graduate HS, college, and get a teaching job. One of my motivations was to one day have the priviledge of being AP holders. I survived not going to DL for YEARS AN YEARS. but it was sOOOO worth it! It is even more fun when u work hard for it- trust me. Good luck! And if u don't get to go, don't forget- its not the end of the world..I'm su  More...
The four major expenses: tickets, hotel, food, and souvenirs. To save on tickets, opt for one park per day in lieu of park hopper. Then make sure you're in dl for a fantastic day and dca for a WOC day. No need to jump around. Hotel, just remember you're only going to sleep and shower there, so all you need is a bed and a bath. Make sure there aren't parking and resort fees, and stay within walking distance to avoid parking/transit expenses. Food: plan ahead and budget. Patinagroup.com has an awesome deal. If anyone in your party has a bday within 60 days before you go you can get a $30 gift certificate. Pack sandwich supplies, share chicken dinners, and eat breakfast (a big one) at your hotel. Finally, souvenirs. Tell your dad that you'll each try to find a pressed penny that is meaningful to you. They can be made into awesome necklaces, bracelets and earrings. At $0.51 apiece, I believe they are the cheapest keepsakes in the park. Except maps, of course. Hope this helps! - LittleAprilShowers  549.6 #306 9:38PM
Sid this right here is a perfect Disney trip plan! LAS this is great and thoughtful advice! You can have careless fun without stressing over a budget this way 👏 great job LAS! - gigibunny2  242.8 #1296 10:14PM
By the way, I have a zillion other little tips like this. If you want to dm me, u can give you some more. I just didn't want to write an entire book right here. - LittleAprilShowers  549.6 #306 10:18PM
LAS if you wrote a book I'd buy it in a second! Those are great tips. I only know how to curb appetite and resist the tempting DL goodness on a budget. - gigibunny2  242.8 #1296 10:29PM
Thanks Gigi! I've thought about writing a blog or an article many times. Not sure if i could fill a book, but at least a pamphlet. Should get around to it one of these days. - LittleAprilShowers  549.6 #306 11:04PM
We also have a jar we all put our change in. Adds up quicker than you think. We are going next week and most of the hotel cost is from the change jar. Good luck. - sewedna  313.5 #719 7:33PM
^^ This - SueBayou  2019.4 #54 7:43PM
you are very creative, why not ask your parents if you can sell some graphics on ebay and etsy.  or some of your old stuff you don't want. take the babysitter course or find a once a week family that needs some kind of help.  maybe your parents are just trying to see if you are motivated to earn some yourself too?  hope this helps.    i was 15 and worked a couple of hours a week in my friends' parent's store.  gave me enough funds to play with. - secretagentangel  1223.5 #100 11:38PM
try the Hojo hotel they have pretty good deals or Priceline a room, we've had really good luck with that. usually getting a marriot or double tree for under $50. - LolatheSlush  231.4 #1434 8:38AM

Just yesterday, Tom Fitzgerald gave a very thorough presentation on how the new star tours came to be. Starting in 1998, and opening this year. They are totally random, to sum it up for you. He said even he has no idea what he would be getting when he rides. He specifically said, he kept both the people that would ride only once on their vacation as well as the APs that visit the parks very often.  More...
Sorry I prefaced it with "CM". I just assumed they'd have a somewhat better idea of the technical specifics. As for my my cats... of course they wouldn't know the answer. They just want to make babies and eat food. No interest in computers. - kingofthecatsinsidedisneyland  5.2 #14914 7:19PM
I beg to differ. Have you seen "Gamer Kitteh!" on Youtube? lol - Alicewhoareyou  922.5 #154 7:24PM
*dont know how to edit on phone* by "seen all the sequences", I meant I've read all the possible sections on Wikipedia, not on the actual ride. - kingofthecatsinsidedisneyland  5.2 #14914 6:40PM
I heard the Starspeeder 1000 is equipped with the Infinite Probability Drive and that's how it comes up with the wild and crazy trips you take. - CM_Shadowgamer  2313.4 #46 12:17AM
