I got my ID after a trip to Disneyland where we drove through the night to get there. I was so sleepy that morning that I fell asleep on our second ride which was POTC. Thus Sleepy Pirate.

Should I feel guilty that we are having our 3 yr old wear some cowboy boots to give him that extra height boost to be able to ride Big Thunder Mtn RR?

No, I wear mine for the same reason, lol - Bullseye  6881.5 #18 5:05PM
I understand we have a 3 year old too. But the height requirements are for safety reasons. I hope you all have a fun time. - PrincessDuckie  931.2 #219 5:25PM

16 more days until we hit the park for our vacation. Can anyone tell me how bad the construction walls are right now? When we went in January I could not believe how many walls there were at DCA.

Ok, for anyone who has to drive more than 10 hours to make it to the park, when you get there do you maximize the experience by spending every last minute possible in the park or do you relax and just enjoy the fact you are there?

I'm 6 hours away, have an AP and still stay open to close! - Mermaid C.  109.6 #3562 6:00AM
I think I would too if I had an AP. There is so much magic there that I can hardly get myself to leave once I have entered the gates. - sleepypirate  5.7 #17680 6:03AM
Depends on how long your stay is. If it's short, then I would enjoy the parks as much as you could! - hollyberry  370.2 #663 6:05AM
Ahhh I know what u mean! I love how it makes me feel! - Mermaid C.  109.6 #3562 6:08AM

My youngest is 1/2 inch too short for Splash Mountain. I don't think he is going to make it before our trip in October... Nothing but healthy foods and lots of them between now and October! :)

How about a thick soled pair of shoes!!! LOL - Boundin  821.6 #252 8:48PM
Good can grow 1/2 inch pretty quickly!! - MinnieMousewife  923.7 #220 8:50PM
Yeah, get him some shape-ups! Lol - Disneykidds_HaveWeMet  181.9 #2326 8:53PM

We just got 7 free airline tickets for use before the end of October! This just saved me so much money for our trip to DL that I can hardly believe it is real. I have the best brother in law in the world!

Wow, how exciting.... Disney here you come!!! - SJCSharkie  315.5 #894 6:43AM

My favorite thing to do at night when at DL is to ride Pirates over and over and over when there is no line. :). What is your favorite thing to do when the park begins to clear out?

Same pirates is an awsome ride! - DisneyByMarco  1406.9 #135 7:35PM
we like to do that too for whatever line is short. . alot of the time its splash mountain at night. . one time we went on i think 7 times in a row - SugarBumpkins  25.1 #6907 7:36PM
CA Screamin'!!! Great at night!! Unfortunately with girls under 3 yrs old I haven't been on it for a few years - Boodad12  77.1 #4179 8:08PM
^^^^yup, i love CS at night but looks like it will never happen again with WoC going on. - Kevinsidethegrid  358.3 #705 8:09PM

Planning the trip for October and just saw that Pirates will be closed for refurbishment... :( That is my favorite ride. Do we still go or wait for next spring? The answer of course is go both times but the bank account disagrees.

My sister and family will be at DL all week long. I am so excited for them but a little jealous too!

I'm jealous too! - dray115  209.8 #1971 6:33AM
I'd be jealous. - MikeyMouse  156.8 #2717 6:38AM

Does anyone have any idea how to get the webcam of the Matterhorn to work. My phone has always told me that the media is not supported and just shows me a blank screen. Using iPhone 3G.

Wish I knew. I have the same problem. OS is most current version and still won't work. Bumping this to see if someone can help. - streetsweeper  529.7 #437 9:39AM
same on my ipod - Ashbunn  49.9 #5029 9:41AM
I've been having problems too. Sometimes I get it to show up on my PC but the camera doesn't rotate like it used to :( - JessicaRabbit33  670.3 #334 9:45AM
I am sad to hear that others are having the same problem. But happy to hear nothing is wrong with my phone. - sleepypirate  5.7 #17680 8:28PM

Greatest Disneyland trip... Drove 11hours through the night, arrived as the gates opened and never left the park until midnight. Then crazy us drove most of the way back before stopping for sleep. Very sleepy but the best time we've ever had! Anyone else have a favorite adventure?

Wow. That seems a bit dangerous! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  669.2 #335 8:33AM
What a great adventure. But don't think I could handle it. - MinnieCarman  303.2 #967 8:35AM
glad you had a great time... But this was definitely not a smart choice. I losta very good friend in a car accident two years ago when they tried to do the same thing down and back from san diego. Someone fell asleep at the wheel. Disneyland is worth anything.. Except your life. Sometimes its ok to rest, or leave early. Dont push yourself. Sorry... This is just a really really sensitive subject for me. - michelledork  696.2 #316 9:54AM
Thanks for the posts! We decided to never do it again (because it was highly dangerous and not very responsible) after we made it back. Young and foolish... We need to simply move closer. - sleepypirate  5.7 #17680 5:24PM

Wondering if anyone has any voice talents to imitate Disney characters. I can do Mickey and Goofy. The kids love to play Disneyland and I play those two characters.

I do a pretty good silent film Mickey Mouse. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #182 8:49AM
:) Just read the reply, very good humor! - sleepypirate  5.7 #17680 7:26PM
My homeboy can do stitch hellla good. - CruellaDeJuicy  9.1 #12499 8:10PM
I do a pretty good Mickey Mouse. We once called a friend who had just been hired by Disney and pretended to be Mickey welcoming her to the company. She was so excited when she got the message that we almost felt bad telling her it wasn't real. Almost  - ghosthost  339.8 #765 8:47PM
