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:

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 #354 6:46AM

I would say between $350-400 a night  - jabs  284.7 #992 10:07AM
Thank you! Was hoping it would be a bit more like Dapper Day rates. Oh well.  - LittleAprilShowers  565.3 #348 10:19AM
its crazy  how much they charge for a room these days - cowboygoofy  219.0 #1719 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  565.3 #348 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!

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 - Santa  1852.6 #88 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  2115.5 #70 9:33AM
Thank you for both! - LittleAprilShowers  565.3 #348 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 #3035 10:09AM

RAK so I thought we had to cancel our family trip because my husbands boss (who I hope steps on a Lego) would not let him take vacation. 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.

Hey everybody! As you all probably know by now, I love to save money. So I thought I'd throw this trip out there for anybody else who might care to use it. This Black Friday, if you spend $75 at Target, you get a 20% off coupon good for any purchase made December 1-7. As far as I know, this will apply to gift cards as well. In addition to the 5% red card discount, this is a pretty cool little chun  More...

Do you know if it applies to online purchases too? We are going to be in the middle of nowhere that day with the nearest Target 200 miles away ๐Ÿ˜ - Geekery  409.4 #526 11:23AM
I can't even imagine being 200 miles from a target! Lol. But yes, I believe it does apply to online purchases. You will be emailed a coupon which would them have to be used in store, though. But you have a full week :) hope this helps! - LittleAprilShowers  565.3 #348 11:27AM
We are only like 6 miles from Target normally, but I'll be at the in-laws for Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for the info! I hope it does work on gift cards, I've been saving all of my money from my part time job to go towards our next trip. Looks like I'll be purchasing LOTS of Disney gift cards!  - Geekery  409.4 #526 11:41AM
Do you know if you can use it with the additional 5% prescription coupon? I just got one of those in the mail...hmmm. - goofymom2boys  1471.4 #107 11:24AM
It said prescriptions do not apply :( - LittleAprilShowers  565.3 #348 11:29AM
Sorry, I misunderstood your question. From what I understand it can't be combined with the 5% pharmacy coupon. However, I believe te pharmacy coupon does work on disney cards and can be combined with the red card discount. Hope that wasn't too confusing... - LittleAprilShowers  565.3 #348 9:47AM
No problem! I actually used the pharmacy 5% + the red card 5% to buy Disney Gift cards which I used to renew our passes. Just didn't know about the promo you posted about. Thx! - goofymom2boys  1471.4 #107 1:13PM

Just wondering, has anybody ever gotten an early check in at the grand?

You can check in as early as you want & if the room is ready they'll let you know. Sometimes mine are ready when I get there at 9am other times not. Just go as soon as you get there & they'll give you a room key even if it's not ready so you can enjoy early park entry, when the room is ready they'll call or text you but it doesn't always work - Santa  1852.6 #88 9:54PM
