Anyone know if they sell the tsum tsum plushes in the parks?

the what? - Lelundrial  571.4 #334 6:03PM
I haven't seen them in the parks.  I think you can only get them through the Disney Store.  I saw them online.  - susieQzee  555.7 #345 6:06PM
Thanks, I bought some from the website, I was just wondering if they were in the parks yet. If you see them, let me know! - arieldonald  22.0 #6525 6:17PM
I haven't seen them in parks. Looked a bit today. South Coast Plaza Disney Store had a lot on Tues last week. I would try there. I think they were $4.75 for little ones. - DLKenCA  2320.8 #55 11:01PM
They sell Jack in Japan, but I haven't seen them in the US, hopefully they pop up! My cousin just ordered the tiny Stitch, looks like a little Stitch hamster! - gothicchic21  154.0 #2580 11:19PM
I'm hoping they bring the Oswald one out over here, he's so cute! - arieldonald  22.0 #6525 8:34AM

Anyone know why the disneyland website is showing no early entry for California adventure for May? We're staying at the disneyland hotel for the first and probably only time and were really looking forward to this! With all the refurbishments and cancelled shows, it seems we picked the worst time to go!

I would call the Disneyland Hotel. Let us know what you find out. :) - DeadliestPassholder  241.5 #1395 9:47AM
Ok I phoned and they said the website is having technical difficulties and the early entry is still on for Wednesday and Friday! Phew!  - arieldonald  22.0 #6525 9:59AM

Love this puzzle! Mine is sitting on our front room table because I haven't figured out how to frame it and I don't have the heart to take it apart :-) - AZDisneyfam  190.6 #2036 5:47PM
Modge podge over the top of it. It dries clear and you can't tell. Then frame it. We have done this with a ton of puzzles to decorate the kids playroom.  - disneymama1  144.5 #2732 7:45PM

I read this morning that the Lilly Belle is now a Club 33 exclusive- can anyone in the parks today confirm if this true? So disappointing, we were looking forward to riding it in May!

It always was kinda Club 33 exclusive. I haven't heard about doing away with the limited reservations for regular guests.  - JenGwen323  1728.5 #90 7:44AM

Several sites are saying plaza inn will be closed from April 20-May 15th, can anyone tell me if this true? Hoping not, we were looking forward to the character breakfast for our trip!

Oh I hope not! - Dopeygirl78  138.9 #2828 8:17PM
I went over to Disneyland Dining and tried to make a reservation for those dates and there was nothing available so I think that is correct. - kskating  612.1 #309 8:54PM
A cast member recently posted a heads up about this.  A Plaza Inn search may help find the post! - dethrizu  301.0 #850 10:37PM

I know I saw some fore little kids, didn't get the Price though.  Check online - potatohead25  646.5 #288 7:21AM

Found something interesting today, if you go on the Disneyland site, and go to maps, zoom in, and then click the stars next to the attractions, it will show you when they are closed. Right now, it says that Thunder Mountain will be down until March 31st. Indiana Jones has been pushed back to March 17th - May 8th and Space Mountain has been pushed back to May12th - June 26th.

indy will be down again? waaah! wasn't it just refurbed? - OhanaPhoto  3714.5 #34 10:32AM
Fortunately, if this is correct, it will be open during our visit March 10-14th!!!! I'm super stoked! - apesandmonkeys  6521.7 #13 10:54AM
unless it turns into another btmrr  refurb ;) - OhanaPhoto  3714.5 #34 11:44AM
I'm gonna check this out!  Thank you! - MeridaFan  3578.0 #36 9:17PM
Hallelujah Indy has been pushed back just in time for us to visit! We are there the week before and I seriously always coordinate our visit with this ride open. It's my favorite! - apesandmonkeys  6521.7 #13 10:56AM
Love this ride!  Love the stickers! - potatohead25  646.5 #288 5:49PM

When staying at the Disneyland hotel, what is the best/fastest way to enter the park for early entry-main gates or at the monorail station? And for DCA, the grand Californian entrance or the main gate? Thanks!

I don't recommend the Grand's gate for early entry unless you plan on lining up early. They often only have two people to do bag checks and then two turnstiles. The line can be all the way around the pool. The front gate is faster for DCA. We don't tend to do early entry to DL (my kids like Fantasyland late at night), but I'd say front gate too.  - mommalostone  59.9 #4252 5:17PM
plus the front gate is nearer to RSR - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5470.0 #17 5:24PM
I think they should have some entrances that are pass holders only. Would be so much easier. - Mommadisneyfan  40.6 #4925 8:49PM
I must be the only one who thinks there shouldn't be. There should be separate lines for multiday ticket holders. There's too many AP holders for it to be beneficial to have lines dedicated to them... They'd end up being the longest lines to stand in. I do think there should be lines for those without bags at security check points. - missmimi90  2002.4 #69 9:08PM

Agree completely! It is super frustrating to stand and wait like that as an AP. - abmickey  64.0 #4143 8:52PM
It's not about the AP so much as when I hand you my ticket I'm done. Single day tickets are just as easy to get in. I've seen some of the embarrassed looks on multi day ticket holders faces when the line is held up. I'd never get a multi day ticket again. - BeatleMike  635.3 #293 9:14PM

Any tips for a first timer staying at the Disneyland hotel? Any hidden treasures to be found??!!

For a serious post though, go check out the Big Thunder miniature model in the Frontier Tower, enjoy Trader Sam's, see the geyser in front of Frontier Tower and enjoy the rose garden. - CM_Shadowgamer  2467.9 #49 9:21PM
Make sure to get your Mickey wake up call! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  676.8 #270 7:08PM
It was Olaf during the holidays. It was so cute! - PixiePirateMaid  331.6 #692 9:14PM
Go check out The Dancing Waters show, The Wonder Building waterfalls, Monorail Cafe, the under water arcade and the paddle boats at the marina! Oh...wait.. *kicks rocks over the refurbishment removing all the old goodies* - CM_Shadowgamer  2467.9 #49 9:19PM
i was gonna say--i did not notice any of that. then again, we have not stayed there yet😂😂 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5470.0 #17 9:24PM
You got me thinking the waters were back!!!! Boo! - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:25PM
I have some wonderful pictures of my girls with the waterfalls from a few years ago. 😍 - MeridaFan  3578.0 #36 9:35PM
okay, first of all I have had a lot of head injuries and have a lot or memory problems and cannot remember a lot of things but the paddle boats really makes sense because I was in a wedding there, and of course we stayed out all night and all I remember is great rooms and hanging out in like a marina and some great restaurants.  now I will have to look up their history and if there was that there  WHY!!!!!!  did they take that out???????? - secretagentangel  1951.1 #75 11:49PM
They took everything I mentioned out to make the E-Ticket Pool, Trader Sam's and Tangaroa Terrace. Monorail Cafe was removed when they made Downtown Disney. - CM_Shadowgamer  2467.9 #49 2:51AM
They still have the dancing water show? Where can I find schedule?? Thanks - Disneyjen  49.4 #4576 9:21PM
It was a sarcastic/sad comment about everything they have removed since installing the E-ticket pool. - CM_Shadowgamer  2467.9 #49 9:23PM
But you could always go watch World of Color :) - CM_Shadowgamer  2467.9 #49 9:24PM
