Me and the hubby (jungleVIP) are disney addicts! We only make it to the park a couple of times a year, but we take it by storm when we do get to go. I also have a blog about doing Disneyland on a budget:

๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป! So I need your help...we are planning a quick trip in February and are going to buy the 1 park per day tickets. Fireworks are not on the entertainment schedule any if the nights we are there, but since we will be there over Valentine's Day I keep hoping they'll be added! I need to make dining reservations for Valentine's Day, but not sure which park to make them in since we will do DCA t  More...

Fireworks only on Fridays through Sundays unless it's for a private event.  - BaseballMickey  9156.3 #14 1:32PM
It's not a holiday and will not be happening since it's during the week/school night for the kids in the surrounding area. Ps. Better make reservations fast. - Quiweez  1371.0 #158 1:18PM
Another option is to make a couple reservations. One for each park. **Make sure you cancel one with 24hours advance or you get charged $10 per person if no show. - DLKenCA  3635.4 #51 1:21PM

Hello one and all! I just have a quick question...does DL do fireworks on Valentine's Day? I know it's midweek during value season this year, but I wasn't sure if they make exception for the holiday?

Even though it's around value days, they might Up it to premium day since that's a big holiday there. Just a heads up. Maybe call but the tickets say subject to change๐Ÿ˜ณ - secretagentangel  14013.3 #8 12:17PM
We buy the so-cal select, and that's not a blackout day. That's not subject to change, right?๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ - LittleAprilShowers  588.9 #404 5:47PM
At the top of the pass it says this pass does ย not guarantee entry into Disneyland due to capacity or something i think.but they've never gone back on a blockout day๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. I think you'll be fine . I think most will probably do most of the celebrating on the weekend - secretagentangel  14013.3 #8 6:38PM

Just got home from a seriously awesome trip to Disneyland. One of the highlights was when a cm in the camera shop noticed my husband's t-shirt which had a hippo on it. He asked about it, and my husband explained that he had bought it for my son's first birthday party, which was a Jungle River Cruise theme. He said, "I got my start on jungle River cruise. Want to hear a story about hippos? Shortly   More...

I will be sure and more closely notice the hippos next time!   - teapotsandteacups  5653.3 #28 12:36AM

While home in Virginia this last week, I filled up my moms car for less than $20. I had to remind myself that i live within driving distance of this station, so as not to be tempted to sell everything and move into my parents spare bedroom.

I know, I know... We were back east and diesel was $1.99 gal. We will be moving when I retire.  - Sugarbuzz  335.8 #828 5:28AM
wow!  well,  last week in maui,  gas was $3.19/gal........  location location location!  it is really frustrating,  the price differences.  espec since i can see offshore oil rigs from my window in santa barbara.  shouldn't the gas be even cheaper here?! - MsTikiMermadam  2300.3 #83 2:52PM

I have a question for you all-knowing Disney Phenoms! Does anyone know what the Disney Hotel rates have been historically for CHOC walk?

I just booked a room at the Disneyland Hotel for the CHOC Walk. The rates are $219, and $299 for the Grand Californian. ๐Ÿ‘ - duckchub  557.8 #427 6:46AM

Thank you! Was hoping it would be a bit more like Dapper Day rates. Oh well.  - LittleAprilShowers  588.9 #404 10:19AM
its crazy  how much they charge for a room these days - cowboygoofy  219.7 #1892 11:23AM
I know! I had checked CHOC walks website, and they said they would have a limited number of rooms at a discount. I was hoping since that's our anniversary to score a group rate like Dapper Day. But $350 doesn't sound like much off of the rack rate :/ - LittleAprilShowers  588.9 #404 11:41AM

Just FYI for any fresno area MWers...the Disney Store at Fashion Fair mall is closing for a couple of months for a reno. But as of last night, everything is 40% off! All sales final. Happy Shopping!

It would be so magical if they make it alot bigger. This is my escape to disney when I can't afford the real happiest place on earth.  - Disney_Girl30  4.6 #22787 10:20AM

Hi everybody! ๐Ÿ‘‹ So I have a quick question...and I did try to search, but nothing came up, so if this is duplicate, please let me know and I'll delete. But my brother and SIL are coming to Cali for probably a once in a lifetime trip. He's not completely thrilled about doing DL, but she is. Unfortunately, they scheduled their trip for the week of may 11th with no flexibility. We were planning on  More...

I just bumped a post for you but it didn't say anything about WOC or fireworks. I believe they both start back May 15 but I wouldn't be surprised if they wait until the 22nd since they will both be new shows, I don't see them showing the old shows for 1 week & I doubt they will show the new ones 1 week early - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3289.3 #55 9:30AM
mist likely yes WOC will be dark. Maybe not the fireworks though I've heard the one they have for the interim is kind of lackluster @IDVandalSkipperCM or another CM may be able to better answer. Also, who doesn't love Carmel!!!! Lol - missariel33  2115.6 #94 9:33AM
Thank you for both! - LittleAprilShowers  588.9 #404 10:03AM
we are going the last week of Feb-the way I see it, its a trade off. Ive come to terms with the fact that WOC, critter country and some of my favorite rides will be closed for refurb. I was especially sad to see the castle will be under tarps :( HOWEVER...Im really looking forward to the lower crowds! I would much rather have fewer attractions, but ones that I can actually see and enjoy without masses of people clogging every nook and cranny! ;) But I honestly can't imagine a "bad" day at the parks-so Id go whenever you can! - KangaRoo  127.9 #3262 10:09AM

But a friend of mine agreed to come with me and is going to help with my boys. Hopefully JungleVIP will be able to make it for a day or two as well. So to celebrate I would like to do an RAK.
