We have only stayed in 4 different hotels while in Anaheim. The Camelot is right across the main gate, nothing fancy just average. The carrousel inn and suites is right across the main gate too and I like it better than the Camelot and my favorite because is just across the street.  Sheraton and the grand Californian. I liked the carousel cause of its walking distance and it's always clean an  More...

Check Howard Johnson's - HoJo. Whenever we spend the night, that's where we stay.  It's walking distance to the parks and nice.   - Winnie111286  6229.8 #16 10:30PM
There are a few things I have to consider when I book a hotel. 1) Husband has a bad back so I need a really comfy bed. 2) two small children with a stroller and I hate taking shuttles due to taking things off and on. 3) I'm very particular that the room is super clean because my kids are on the floor touching things. I always book on priceline and only book 3 1/2 and up. I normally get The Hilton by the convention center which I love and it's my favorite. The trick with the Hilton if you see it cheap book it cause if you wait it increase from $125.00 to $200.00 right away. I've stayed at Marriot Suites and they are also awesome. Book early cause you can get a good deal. The Royal Crown is decent though they changed their name. All have to pay a parking fee but seems like everywhere is charging for parking. Good luck on your booking. Always read the reviews before you book. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1031.1 #170 12:57PM

My 2-cents: we love DL hotel.  It is magical.  Yes expensive, but those early entrances into the parks during holiday time are worth their weight in gold.  My daughter would be heartbroken if we went to DL and didnt stay in her room with lights on the headboard that sing her to sleep.   - PixiePrincessPolly  66.2 #4144 6:45PM
We love Embassy Suites! Beautiful place, a nice breakfast every morning. Happy hour & snacks if you want to come back later in the evening for a break...and the shuttle runs constantly and drops you right at the gate.  - azcoolmom  251.9 #1285 10:51PM

I used to work in Lost and Found. Yes, try. We get many sunglasses, hats, cell phones, name it. Although I would check tomorrow. Sometimes we get things brought in that day like wallets but other items if lost on a ride we don't get until the next morning after the ride has closed and the CM do the walk through.  - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1035.8 #169 1:57PM

I would love to see at least one AP holder line πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ 4 weeks ago a cm pulled over to the side this family of five, I believe they were " ticket renters" in kinda felt bad for them they looked surprised and bummed . The lil kids broke my heart cause It looked like they were about to walk out.

I would rather have a slower line and assuring that every ticket is real than a quick line and allow those illegal tickets to get through - BaseballMickey_CM  7257.2 #9 7:18PM
Me too. A line is just an opportunity to talk to other guests :) - MrsMears  217.1 #1730 11:13PM
Exactly!! It's worth the wait! - adisneyfamily  920.5 #187 8:02AM
I'd actually love it if they had one or two lines dedicated for APs. By the time I get to Disneyland, I'm in a hurry to get inside and start the day!!! - MarathonMinnie  138.6 #2850 8:26PM
With the amount of AP's that come into the park in a daily basis those lines would be longer than the regular lines. - lostgirl7988  697.8 #262 11:30AM
I agree there should be a seperate line for annual passes and people like our family that come from another country gets stuck in lines that are taken up buy disney cheats. I hope their annual passes are cancelled if its not theres and cant be reissued for 2 years. - puddy77  225.0 #1622 1:22AM
these companies only rent out the multi day tix, hoping the photo won't be as good. I have not heard of people renting ap's though it says somewhere if you allow another to use it you are not allowed to get one again. - secretagentangel  2422.0 #53 1:47AM
My daughter's friend (14 year old) wanted to go with us on a recent visit. When she invites a friend they usually buy a tix at Ralphs so we can avoid lines. Well she said this friend wanted to know if we could make a stop to get a discount tix before we hit DLR. I told her no way and to explain to her friend that it was an illegal tix he was going to buy, not a "discounted" tix. He didn't end up going. But my point is that some people think if it's on the Internet it must be true and legal. I feel bad for all the kids that have been turned away because their parents were unknowingly duped. Hopefully these jerks will be out of business soon so no one will get duped again. - PrincessDuckie  862.7 #206 8:26AM

It sucks for those who won't be able to renew. Disneyland holds a very special place in our hearts. The way I look at it is, the happiness , memories, smiles, all the fun my lil fam gets when we visit. To me it's worth every penny . We are a family of 5 but every other place we go we don't enjoy as much as DL. Plus all the merchandise and food discounts we get. We live an hour away. And try to go   More...

Tagged in: NEWS  
A long time ago in a Galaxy far far away was a theme park called Disneyland. In the 1990s Disneyland had a major drop in regualr attendance to Disneyland and only offered one type of pass, a premium pass that was 150 then raised to 200 for only ONE park. Because of the declining attendance and lack of Annual Passholders flocking to the parks, mind you these were the days where the was no Rancho Santa Margarita, Irvine was still pretty much fields, no irvine spectrum, everything north of the 15, 91 was cows and no homes, you get what I'm saying they started to do promos and new pass levels to incite people to get to the parks more and even did such things as nighttime shopping passes during Christmas, then the famous 2fer tickets. Well Disney really thought that opening a second park would really boost attendance and be a big smash hit and we all know how that went for 10 years. They did everything they could to get people to come to the parks and created 99 dollar passes, get in free on your bday, give a day get a day, they had promos all year around esp for the locals to just get people in the door for a mediocre experience. From the time frame of 2000 to 2011 Disneyland opened two new attractions buzzlight year and Nemo which pretty much was a refurb of an old attraction. They actually had closed down restaurants in the parks, there were no major of any of the lands, two new parades no new stage shows, reduction in characters in the park and a new firework show for the 50th that they still use. Then you have DCA over that time frame..What happened over there, nothing at all for the most part, it was the same park that lacked in every possible category and the only entertainment they had was the Aladdin show and some street performers and the only thing that could draw locals was brining back ELP but as soon as that was over they left. .These were the final years for Eisner...Since 2010 here is what we have been given...Carsland, 3 attractions, two shows 5 characters. Buena Vista Street featuring two shows, street characters and the fab 5 and a 4 star dining experience, World of color, The Little Mermaid attraction, 3 atmosphere shows, daily live music at the paradise gardens, a refrub off all the entire area, Redwood creek also got a nice redo and updated to get rid of that Brother Bear movie that nobody has seen and replaced it with a Pixar hit of UP with a stage show....Then lets go over to Disneyland....Since 2010 we have a brand new Star Tours experience, new summer time firework show, Princess Fantasy fair, 6 daily character shows, a new parade that is actually very good, a brand new wonderful stage show Mickeys map, diferent celebrations each month for such things as Greek, Valentines, etc etc (BTW those wont be limited time magic next year they will be part of new traditions). Now that DCA is finally where they want it your going to start hearing about more new things unveiled this summer for Disneyland like the new Tomorowland and other things as well....Pretty much everyone was conditioned to pay a lower price for sub-par product and now you are getting 300% more band for your buck with all of the new things the parks have to offer Well now the parks are at a place where the demand to get in is at an all time high and its both parks. Not only are you locals wanting to come at record numbers but people are traveling from all over the world again to visit the parks because there is something here again that makes people want to visit. For fun and games, go look on the AP website and take the number of visits you have made in a year and divide it by the total price of your Annual pass, its pretty low for a lot of us who go a lot. For instance if I go 100 times a year its about 6.79 dollars a visit., not bad!! I know its not easy for a lot of us continue to get passes as it keeps increasing but you have to take a look at some of what I said. The demand out weighs the supply and increasing prices is the only way to cut back attendance and make your visits more enjoyable while at the same time they can keep coming up with new exciting shows and attractions that keep us coming back year after year and not leaving us with a stale product. I guess we should all be grateful that we live in Southern California and are surrounded by so many other things to do such as enjoy the beaches, the parks we have, the mountains, Knots, Magic Mountain, Sea World, the zoo the banana stand,...Ok I have writer cramp - Dave  13313.0 #2 10:54AM

We don't live in SoCal but if APs were cheaper we would have them every year. But they're not, which is a bummer on one hand but I feel lucky to be able to go to DL at all...I really do. Of course I wish APs were cheaper but it really is Supply/Demand just like you explained earlier. So to me it makes sense even though I'm not excited about it. I am impressed with this write up BTW, very thorough. 😊 - MinnieMousewife  895.9 #193 11:07AM
THISπŸ‘†!!!! Perfectly stated! Yes, increases are tough, but you get what you pay for. It is unfortunate that it will cause a strain for some...but remember that there are people who have NEVER experienced DL. Gas prices go up, food prices go up, car prices go's life! And yes to figure out your # of visits in one year. Then ask yourself "is it worth it". Consider how much you spend on movies, Starbucks, per year...when you add it all up, was it worth it? - Gia  802.0 #219 11:10AM

Very well stated. I'm okay with the price increase. It's still a great value for the amount of enjoyment we get from our passes. - vernswifevickie  400.5 #535 11:24AM
Exactly what I've been thinking. I know the high price is a bummer but there have also been so many special AP offerings- previews of new attractions, movie screenings, etc. it comes down to a decision of value to the indiviual person. Plus, if DL was not having fantastic attendance than the price wouldn't be what it is. It's supply and demand. Rather than complain just decide if it's worth it. If not, don't buy a pass. If it is, find a way to save the extra money from other places in your budget. Think of how much some people spend on Starbucks (or other coffee places) in a month and then a year. Cut out a couple trips there a week and you could pay for any pass you wanted. - LilSterner  5091.5 #21 11:42AM
"Like" x 1000. Hopefully this will keep the price increase from turning into a crab fest on here. - Linzee  1141.2 #148 11:56AM
I understand what you are saying. But not all of us live in Southern California. When I go, I have to pay for a hotel. I have to pay for food. We like to have a good time on vacation, so we have stayed at the DLR exclusively for every visit over the past 10 years. Carsland and all those other changes are wonderful, of course, but since we do not go every week like many of you locals, we don't get tired of things the way many of you might. I was never aware there were different fireworks shows, for example. It's all just fireworks to me. And we enjoy them. Same with parades. We like the parade, even if we aren't aware of what it is called. I think it's definitely a different park experience for those who go frequently and those of us who do not. Of course, a $20 or $30 increase isn't going to break us, it just would Have been nice if they had waited another year, especially after last year's huge increases. We had a good time this year. It was fun seeing all the new stuff, as well as all our old favorites. And Disney will certainly not go bankrupt without those of us who don't go back for a long while. There are always people there waiting to take our place. Supply and demand, as you say. I just miss the more affordable pass prices, as most of us do. - MeridaFan  3626.4 #37 12:02PM
I agree with these comments. As long as the price increases help with the crowds, I think it makes sense. I do think the experience and in particular the AP experience has really improved over the years (it seems everyone else feels the same - hence the off the charts attendance levels). I feel very lucky and privileged to live in So. Cal. We will only take a hiatus for awhile as our little man turns 3 next year and it is tough to start paying for 4 passports vs. 3 passports! They're so little I feel like we can take a break for awhile and come back with renewed/increased excitement. Although I may go through withdrawal and change my mind. :) On another note, how do I edit the post - it appears my So Cal Select price was wrong and it went up by only $10 vs. $30, to $279 - sorry about that folks! - QueenMiranda  400.7 #534 12:08PM
and Dave - toph  2418.2 #54 12:10PM
I completely agree! Yeah, it's a mighty large chunk of change to get Premium Passes for our family of 5 but they are worth it and we always find a way to come up with the money every year. - Autoalice  161.4 #2493 12:24PM
I think also what a lot of people fail to understand is how a big company works like this. Disney as you know is spread out all over the place from Theme Parks,to cruise lines and to T.V, Movies, Music, Stores, it goes on and on. Well each of those some may say Departments are ran as their own companies and responsible for their own profits and losses within the umbrella of the entire company.It even goes a step further as each department within Disneyland is managed that way as well and has their own budgets and even though the attractions themselves dont have tickets or a cash register, there is a number that is associated per guest that visits that attraction in a day, how many guests go on within a day, so on and so.So for instance when a movie like John Carter which had a budget of 300 million tanks at the box office yes its going to affect the over all company but what is going to get hit hardest is that division of the company. Now that the parks are brining in more revenue it enables them to provide more and more for us as consumers for years to come. If they were just willy nilly raising prices and taking more and more away than you wouldnt see myself or a lot of others renewing. I think its a shame but what this is going to turn into is Disneyland being more of a once or twice a year event instead of a weekly thing but I think we will all be ok and find other fun things to do - Dave   13313.0 #2 12:29PM
Well said. I think the price is well worth it and we come from NorCal! So we make to the parks about 10 times a year (sometimes more). - PrincessLeia  306.8 #834 12:36PM

@SpiritOfAdventure Not really, Dave's words are well thought out and cover a lot about Disney and passes. - friendlymouse  727.9 #254 1:27PM
Hahaha. Awesome Dave. Now I'm mad our post and conversation got removed last night. Haha. People.... Prices change, things get better. Disneyland is a luxury, NOT an entitlement! It is a company to make money. Yes they make out dreams come true, but the reason they cost so much is because they are the best! If it wasn't the best, you wouldn't pay those prices! (ie, knotts, sea world, long beach aquarium, magic mountain, universal studios). If you want cheaper go to those places. - sunshinegates  745.7 #244 2:05PM

Interesting how you put it in the past not so many people went and now they do as far as I can remember ride lines have been over an hour wait time. Till this day it is still the same or worst so how can you say less people are going. Confused - Enome  9.4 #10802 11:01PM

Premium AP holder, and shareholder. The latter takes some of the sting out of it. I would encourage every Disney fan to own a piece of the company - Melody_CM  7607.7 #8 12:27PM
After finishing my business class, I have seriously been thinking about doing that. - Lelundrial  591.3 #329 2:26PM
Well it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who thinks the payment plan should be discontinued. Like others have said Disneyland is a luxury, not a right. Plain and simple: you can either afford it or you can't. It shouldn't be up to Disney to bend over backwards to make things cheaper just because you live nearby and have a big family and want visit every couple of weeks. If you can't afford the upfront cost of a pass, do what everyone else does...visit once a year. And make a nice big trip of it. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #980 2:01PM
Seriously? Disney has a brain and knows that the local ppl will come more often. Why not make it a way that makes it easier for them. So you're telling me that if you lived close, you wouldn't take advantage of the payment option? I can pay upfront if I wanted, but if I'm given this option, why not take advantage of it?! - caramiapoohAKAface  3910.6 #34 2:12PM
Disney DOES make it easy, it's called the payment plan. Lol! I live 20 minutes away, I have a Premier Pass and I visit about once every two weeks, sometimes more, and I pay for it upfront. I do that because I can AFFORD it. Why would I want to spend a year of my life being in debt to Disney? To me, one payment once a year = hassle free. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #980 2:21PM
Paying a few bucks a month is just an easier deal for most people. And with no interest charged, who wouldn't want to do it that way? I think it's a great option and hopefully they keep it! - MeridaFan  3626.4 #37 2:30PM
I think you're assuming Disney wants the parks to be less crowded, which they might if there was no payment plan. If they did do away with payment plans, you can pretty much count on much larger increases to fill the void. - Gia  802.0 #219 2:34PM
I guess I better remember this when purchasing my next car or house...only get it if I can AFFORD it and pay it all upfront!!! 😜😜😜 - caramiapoohAKAface  3910.6 #34 2:37PM
@gia; I (as I said above) would be happy to pay more (a lot more) for an improved product. - georgieporgie  183.9 #2155 2:41PM
You're right Kansas! They should also cancel payment plans on cars, mortgages, year long apartment leases. All of them should be gone. Can't afford it up front, find something cheaper. 😏 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.3 #177 5:13PM

I am loving your WW posts! I am coming out I'm a week. I've lost 60 lbs since February and am nervous for our trip. Any and all advice is awesome! Keep it coming. There is so little info out there that I'd love a blog or some kind of other online resource. - joshwikler  47.5 #4704 7:55AM
Congrats on your weight loss :) - TiggerBelle  515.4 #390 8:07AM
Congratulations on your weight loss!! I've lost 40 pounds over the last couple of years. It was 50 but I sort of lost my mojo for a while. It takes willpower to stay in plan in the parks but it can be done. One thing I do is bring a cooler with lots of fresh fruit and munchie veggies, like snap peas and carrots. I use the lockers the are outside the entrance just to the left of lost and found. I pack everything in single serve baggies so I can grab it and stick it in my bag as we go back and forth between the parks. I splurge on fruits that I don't buy every day like blackberries and cherries, so it feels like a treat. You can do it!! - vernswifevickie  400.5 #535 8:14AM
