Dole Whip (2,500 miles from the Enchanted Tiki Room).

My son picked this up at WonderGround gallery as a surprise birthday gift for me (due to my new obsession with the macarons from the kiosk in front of WoD!)

Happy Birthday, MDM!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  713.5 #333 10:08AM
. I just one thing on the shop disney app , it was an apron.  Is this a t-shirt?   - itsmyglassslipper  856.9 #261 4:22PM
- itsmyglassslipper  856.9 #261 4:23PM
itsmyglassslipper it's actually a suitable for framing print. Not sure if they have other products with the picture (he masterfully steered me away from the section) - msdizmaui  1102.3 #204 6:08PM
msdizmaui so simple but very pretty.  Hahaha that he steered you away from that section. That reminds of when my sister wanted to buy  a Donald tsum tsum. My daughter and i kept telling her, "no don't buy that one, it's not the original." Since Donald has a special meaning for her, we had already bought her the one from the parks. It was one of her Christmas gifts and when she saw it, she said, "no wonder you never let me buy it. Sorry for the long story but you comment reminded me. 😊  - itsmyglassslipper  856.9 #261 6:20PM

Does anyone have any clue when the summer (late) hours end this year? Planning our August trip and don't want to make the mistake of booking when the parks close early (did that one year). In the old days it was after Labor Day, but it's gotten earlier and I'm wondering about this year with the parade ending the 20th (unfortunately contacting Guest Service doesn't help).

My best estimate is August 20th or at the latest august 27th. You are correct that it has scaled back but they close at 12am and then they go down to 11pm for a few weeks.  But sadly you can only check 60 days out in the Disney site  - pikaplaid  8109.8 #16 2:07PM
Mahalo!  Once I messed up and most nights the park closed at like 9pm!  We saw a lot of movies that trip! - msdizmaui  1102.3 #204 3:16PM
Don't they usually stay open until 12:00 Fri, Sat and Sun most weekends? I would think they would at least through Labor Day. Or will your trip be during the week? - mommyduchess  648.5 #367 2:13PM
We'll probably stay a week. If the hotel offers any specials it's usually only food Sun-Thurs, but we're used to that.  - msdizmaui  1102.3 #204 3:15PM
What dates are you looking at to come, if I may ask? - mommyduchess   648.5 #367 3:42PM
mommyduchess that's the $64,000 question. I want to make sure the park is open late every day but there's all these variables (hotels usually offer discounts later in the month; it'll be super crowded the last week of the parade; could be super crowded when Fantasmic starts up again).  - msdizmaui  1102.3 #204 12:21PM
Make sure you aren't blocked - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3268.6 #55 2:30PM
Hahaha.  That's the first thing that I'll check!  Mahalo for the reminder! - msdizmaui  1102.3 #204 3:14PM
It depends too on the entertainment and crowds. Last year they went down to early's for a little bit and then within a week they went back up to normal late hours without any announcement. So keep an eye on the entertainment schedule.πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  13583.2 #9 12:34PM
Interesting. I keep chatting with different CMs in the DL web site.  The last one said "usually after Labor Day" and the one before that sent me a link to a page that said typically the parks are open late the month of August. I may just go for the week after the parade. Better chance for hotel discounts that week too  - msdizmaui  1102.3 #204 6:10PM

Β This was just a big rectangle hole in the ground. There was a hot tub in the corner and during the summer they set up a temp bar at one end and had cocktail servers. It was nothing special but I have such great memories there! Β  - msdizmaui  1102.3 #204 11:03PM

Back home (and totally depressed). What's the first thing I did after unpacking.....checked hotel rates and flights for August!

Hope you enjoyed your trip to the parks. Sorry I missed you, but hope to see you when you come back again. Glad to hear you made it home safely 😊 - DisneyDiane316  3418.1 #53 9:03PM
I hope to see you too one of these trips!   - msdizmaui  1102.3 #204 12:21AM
When in August? You double checked block out dates for then, right? πŸ˜‰ Last week of August the past few years has proven to be a pretty nice, less crowded time to go. (It'll definitely be hot at that time! 😬) - mommyduchess  648.5 #367 11:03PM

Things I learned on this trip: 1) black leggings are the new official uniform for women; 2) if I don't do good in the first game on TSMM, I don't stand a chance of beating my son; 3) you CAN still get "double surf" at Blue Bayou, but it's costs $15 extra. A hui hou Disneyland...

Proud black capri legging wearer βœ‹πŸΌπŸ˜‚.  Rarely will I stray from my park uniform and yes, without a doubt, some women do need to do a chonie check, cause not all leggings are created equal or opaque.   - Linzee  2136.7 #92 10:46PM
