Questions re: you prefer Orchestra or Mezzanine; and can you specify one or the other with the FastPass or do you just take what you get?

You don't get to specify. I believe that for FP it starts with Show #1 Orchestra, then to Mezzanine and then to Balcony. Then it goes to Show #2 in the same order. I would prefer Orchestra with Frozen to be closer to the performers to see their faces. There is only one major scene where the Mezzanine maybe better.  - NotReallyGrumpyBill  450.7 #513 4:01PM
Thank you SO much I was thinking Orchestra too since there's isn't the props like Aladdin had. One more ? If I the machines say what they're dispensing (like the times with regular machines)?  If it was Balcony I wouldn't want to bother.  - msdizmaui  759.6 #264 4:38PM
ok so I can express my thoughts on mezzanine and orchestra, since I sat in orchestra today; I thought the sound was off, compared to sitting in mezzanine. If there is a next time for me, I will opt, if I can, to sit in the mezz.  - FrankenweenieVelinee  3518.6 #44 5:06PM
Curious, if the sound wasn't an issue which one would you prefer? - NotReallyGrumpyBill  450.7 #513 8:21PM
Mezz center. NotReallyGrumpyBill - FrankenweenieVelinee  3518.6 #44 8:23PM
Thanks for this info. I'll be ready for when I try for the FPs 😊 - encinitasrunner  55.8 #4694 5:51PM
Big Mahalo for the info!  Such a help. I'm still hoping that they'll come out with a dining package.....fingers crossed! - msdizmaui  759.6 #264 9:46PM
FrankenweenieVelinee tell msdizmaui what you told me today on Frozen packages - Quiweez  785.5 #250 10:13PM
oh yes, msdizmaui I happen to come across the new Frozen packages this weekend...there are 3 different packages: one is a $49 "treat" package, the second is a 3-course meal w/priority seating $99 & the other is an ultimate VIP package at $299. here is the link to all packages: - FrankenweenieVelinee  3518.6 #44 6:18AM
FrankenweenieVelinee you are my new hero!!!!  Thank you so much for tagging me! Booking now! And mahalo Quiweez for thinking of me!  I'm so happy! - msdizmaui  759.6 #264 1:40PM

If you're not in a hurry, make sure to stay until the end of the credits of Finding Dory. Super cute movie!

Awesome movie! :)  - tnkrbell82  5.5 #17769 6:29PM

I thought so  really interesting story. lots of twists and turns. Loved the new characters too - msdizmaui  759.6 #264 8:05PM
I always stay until the last credit goes by. Too many people never thank the people who made the film you just saw.  - BaseballMickey  7958.2 #11 7:43PM

There are also backpacks and shoulder bags that are more subtle (solid leather with just a little Mickey). They come out in stores and online in June 17th! - msdizmaui  759.6 #264 1:53AM

OMG...does anyone have the inside track and know what this is going to be? @luxkitty?

Yes!  I just googled--there are Vogue and Harper's Bazaar articles confirming a Disney line.  From the pics, it looks like the line will be much more subtle and than the Dooneys (which are cute, but just not my style). - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.7 #339 3:31PM
I'll have to Google it!  I have Dooneys but really only use the crossbodys in the parks. I could totally go for subtle, everyday Disney....especially in Coach! - msdizmaui  759.6 #264 3:41PM

Help! I'm having issues with one of my sons and its making me sad and all I want to do is eat. I'm so mad at myself. I worked so hard to lose the weight (and vacation is in August). Why do I let emotions control me (and why do cookies make it all better). Sorry...needed to vent.

It's so easy to stuff our faces when we're sad, mad, frustrated. I do the same thing. Try praying, exercising, or talking to a friend. It helps me. Also, tell yourself you have to drink 8 oz of water before you can snack. You may become so waterlogged, you eat less. Hang in there. They do grow up. Really! - disneyforme  496.1 #456 9:40AM
When?  He's in his 30's!  He had a baby in March but apparently only his wife's mother is good enough to be with it (she from Thailand and doesn't speak English). I've held my grandson  3 x's since he was born!  I'm trying the water trick!  Thank you ! - msdizmaui  759.6 #264 6:19PM
I'm so sorry. No wonder you're hurting. Maybe try doing something with all three of them to start with?  - disneyforme  496.1 #456 10:22PM
Hi MDM!  Sorry to hear you're feeling blue.  That must be a tough situation--no wonder you are wanting to eat.  The water trick sounds good to me. I always try to paint my nails or brush my teeth or something.  If I brush my teeth, then food tastes gross afterward, so I stop snacking.  Hope things get resolved soon!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  632.7 #339 8:17PM
I'm so sorry, it's so hard!!!!! I wish I had so uplifting words of wisdom for you. My only suggestion is go on a walk. I usually don't want to do it but feel better after. Hang in there!!! 😘 - varela2892  64.2 #4429 8:06PM

Look at all those donor stickers! Thank you. Wish they'd bring it back too.  - jacdanfan  12152.6 #6 5:56PM

The HoJo FB page has a link to a great Mouse Chat article on all the proposed changes to DCA...all of which make me sad. Hate the way the new management is thinking. Where's Lassiter figure in all this!?!

I won't believe anything til I hear something official by Disney. - SorcererD91  4007.4 #41 3:09PM
The article seems credible. Talks a lot about the deal Disney has with Anaheim and how much $$$ they need to spend in development to keep the tax credits. It's actually very interesting. I just hate to see Disney themes replaced with Marvel and other themes (they think are necessary to compete with Universal).  - msdizmaui  759.6 #264 3:23PM
Arnt these the same people who said star wars land was going where toon town is?it seems most of the "facts" they have told ends up being false. I agree I don't believe anything till it comes from Disney - MrsGrumpy2002  209.2 #1943 4:27PM
Sounds like a rehash of the OCREGISTER article in I think February or before? Go to or I think I made a post on it. Might have been back when they raised AP prices. They explained the whole tax/ticket break thing and DCA expansion. Plus they covered the city council meetings on it. It was supposed to start before starwarsland  (maybe the planning did) , has to finish by 2023 or they're  penalized . msdizmaui - secretagentangel  6915.6 #17 5:53PM
Logistically and logically, it doesn't make sense. There's already a store that is heavily themed to the attraction and two, almost every other Disney park had a ToT attraction and with the popularity of it wouldn't make sense to change it. These are probably the same people who said the submarines were going away, there was going to be a Marvel attraction in Innoventions, Autopia was going away and Star Wars area was going to be in ToonTown.  - BaseballMickey  7958.2 #11 7:19PM
