I need opinions on which days to go to Disneyland/DCA when it comes to crowds: Sunday, Sept 1st- Weds, Sept 4... or Thursday, Sept 5- Sunday, Sept 8? I have a class on that Thursday morning I have to get to and was looking at the AP discount. Thank you! :)
Hey all, I posted this originally without logging in, oops. Anyway, we are going to the parks Sat-Monday! Anything we MUST do while we are there this time of year? Also, is it worth it to get to that sandwich place in DTD? Hope to see some of you around the parks and say hi! :)
Our trip is being postponed from Dec 21-24 due to money issues now boo :( but we're going Feb 1 and Grand Cali is the same price that paradise pier would have been for us in Dec! Anyone know how the crowds may be at that time? Anything closed? Thanks! Love you all xoxo
Found these cute eos brand chap sticks at Walgreens today, Alice in Wonderland theme with hidden Mickey. Not sure if all eos are Disney but I'd seen people with them and thought they were pretty cool then saw Disney brand and had to have! Anyone else have these in other themes?
Hey all! Looking forward to being at Disney this weekend and also checking out a school for a PsyD program.. It's in West LA (Pepperine) does anyone know of any safe and decent living areas around West LA that are below the $2000 a month? I figured I'd get my Cali MWers perspective on options for living for me, the hubby and our 3 kitties! Any info would be greatly appreciated!!
This is going to be a big first trip for me! First time staying at Candy Cane Inn, First Disney trip over Halloween time/in October. Anything special I should do or watch out for? Come from Sat-Monday Oct 13-15
If I buy an annual pass online how long do you think it would take to ship to AZ, or is there a pick up at park option? Also, if I buy it online and do not receive it in time to book a DLR hotel with an AP discount, do I have a code I would get immediately when buying it online that I could use for the resort discount?
Sorry kind of complicated question, thank you!!
NO availability at the Disneyland Resort hotels for
Labor day weekend? I know it is an EXTREMELY popular weekend, but we booked last year about 4 days before and were able to get in at the Grand Californian for Labor Day Wknd. I just tried it online, haven't called... not serious about going that weekend but have it in mind since it's my birthday. Is the system just down or do you think they're More...
I am going on the Disney Cruise to the Eastern Carribean on July 27 (St. Marteen, St. John/St. Thomas, and Castaway Cay). I was just wondering if anyone else has gone on this cruise or a Disney cruise and if there is anything I MUST do or try and any tips (Just 4 adults going for my wedding ceremony on board :)). Thank you all, and I have to say I love reading all of your posts. Have a w More...
I've never been to Disneyland around Halloween time and was thinking of doing an October trip. Can anyone explain what the Mickey's Halloween Party is like or what makes it different than a regular night in the park? I'm sure this question had been answered but I'm on my phone and don't have a lot of time to research right now! Thanks and have a great night :)
Mr. Disney was one of five children, four boys and a girl. He was the fourth born Disney son. He was named after his parents pastor and friend Walter Parr, a preacher at St. Paul Congregational Church. The pastor, in turn, will later name his son Elias, after Walt's father.
Most of Walt's childhood was spent on a farm in Marceline, Missouri, where he began drawing, painting and selling pictures to neighbors and family friends. In 1911, the family moved to Kansas City, where his love for trains really developed. His Uncle, Mike Martin, was a train Engineer who worked on the route between Fort Madison, Iowa, and Marceline. Walt would later work a summer job with the railroad, selling newspapers and snacks to the travelers. To read more about Walts love for trains

Walt Disney in my opinion, is a wonderful example of the American dream! He represents: imagination, optimism, creation, and self-made success in the American tradition. He brought us closer to the future, while telling us of the past, it is certain, Walt Disney was a great man! He and his brother Roy co-founded Walt Disney Productions, which became one of the best-known motion-picture production companies in the world! Disney was an innovative animator and created the cartoon characters we all love to watch today. :) He won 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime, and was the founder of the magical playgrounds that ties us all together, Disneyland and Disney World. Had he been alive today he would be 112 years old! Happy birthday Walt! Thank you so much for believing in your dreams! You are a true inspiration.
In honor of today, it would be fun if we all mentioned our favorite quote from Mr. Disney. I'll go first, I have many, but this one always sticks out:
"I've always been interested in the past and history and I think it's vital."
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!
