Here is a Disneyland historical video that I really wanted to post last week but did not have the time. This one is one of my favorites. It was a reel of footage found from the construction of Disneyland called Walts Reel that they found in the archives in which most of it had never been seen.

I collect many things, like buttons, unused FPs, and park maps. Sadly, I live in NorCal, am on college budget, and can't get there often - haven't been there for about 1 yr cuz participated in Disneyland College Program Fall 2014. If anyone can grab any, is appreciate it XD

Considering many of you are locals, I thought this would be a good place to ask what my family should do in the three days that we have during our vacation where we will not be in Disneyland. We have already experienced Universal Studios and gone to a Conan show, as well as visited Santa Monica Pier but we're looking for something new. We will probably make a trip down to San Diego for one of the   More...

Definitely the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Safari Park, Coronado is beautiful, Gaslamp, Mt. Soledad, Seaport Village, and Balboa Park to name our favorites 😊 - OhanaPhoto  4121.9 #30 3:52PM
I love Balboa Park and Old Town San Diego is a good place to catch a quick bite. - nicealex77  711.1 #256 6:22PM
San Diego is gorgeous city - MarshaMouse  4913.8 #22 3:01PM
I am not local, but we were just down there and we really enjoyed the CA Science Centre.  It is free to get in but you do have to pay for the special exhibits/IMAX.  They have a Dead Sea Scroll exhibit right now, which does sell out, and it was interesting with a lot of ancient artifacts.  They also have the Endeavour there, which is fascinating to see also.  We also did SeaWorld in San Diego.  I understand there is a lot of controversy surrounding it, but we did enjoy it.  If you go to SeaWorld, check online about the All Day Dining pass..... $30 for unlimited meals in 4 restaurants all day long....we were piggies but loved it. - dianeburns1998  76.1 #3916 8:51PM

So I want to buy a new lens for my camera to capture our upcoming Disney trip especially dark rides I'm looking at a cannon 50mm 1.4 but not sure if that do it. Does anyone have any tips of best lens for low light?

50mm is good for portraits at about Β 5 ft away. With my t5i I use a tamron 17-55 2.8 with my ISO set at 12800, that is my all around lens & does great In dark & light but it depends on your camera as much as the lens - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1732.4 #92 7:27PM
@JollyRoger5 - pikarich  4744.7 #24 7:24PM

So I'm planning our August trip, but I'm having a hard time figuring out where to stay. We normally stay at one of the resort hotels, but the prices right now are crazy. I know a lot of people like the Howard Johnsons, but our kids are preteens. It seems to cater to the younger kids. Any thoughts?

What kind of price range and will you want to walk, park, or take a hotel shuttle?  We love staying on property, but it is very expensive--can only do it once every few years.  We stayed at Embassy Suites a few times when we first started visiting DL (2005, I think).  We loved it--free breakfast and free happy hour (wine, beer, and a few simple drinks for adults, sodas and Shirley temples for kids, and popcorn for everyone).  I stayed there as a teen with my parents and thought it was fun.  But, it is not walking distance.  We have used Priceline in recent years and been placed at Marriott Suites (on Harbor, not walking distance), Holiday Inn (by M&F parking, walking distance) and Red Lion (on Harbor, walking distance).  All were clean and easy, but nothing special in terms of ambiance/experience.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  602.7 #322 2:44PM
you say free happy hour?!?!?! Wow!! I need to check that out!! - brodysmommy  414.8 #509 2:57PM
I love the free happy hour thing too. You just need to be there to enjoy it! - Yeti_Ing  63.9 #4200 3:01PM
πŸ˜‚ it's pretty fun-nothing fancy, but we found it to be a nice little treat before we headed over to the parks in the evening for dinner - Spoonful_O_Sugar  602.7 #322 3:30PM
We LOVE Embassy Suites, we have not stayed at one in Anaheim but we have stayed at them in Portland, Seattle San Fran etc and they are always fabulous. - dianeburns1998  76.1 #3916 5:22PM
you will not mess up with embassy suites! ooh i love that brand... coz of FREE BFAST and HAPPY HOUR!!! Too bad, their hotel is way far of a walk to the parks - otilegna  2374.8 #59 6:12PM
Our favorites are the Anabella and Marriott and Sheraton. - 1Princess3Princes  558.8 #346 4:02PM
We just got back and stayed at Springhill Suites on Ball Rd.  Walked everyday, about a 15 minute walk.  We loved this hotel and free breakfast. - dsnylvrlv  5.2 #17355 5:38PM
We usually stay at Red Lion about a mile away, but easy walking.  Breakfast buffet included with really good bacon.  We've also stayed at Carousel Inn and Suites for convenience of being across from main gate. Have found both for less than $150 a night - duckymomo  44.5 #4818 5:43PM
