Got lunch reservations for Cathay Circle Theater for my fiance's birthday on 8/1.  Any recommendations for food there?  We read the menu and everything looks tasty!

my fave is the ceviche appetizer. YUM! - MarVelinee  5290.2 #31 9:55AM
Cheddar JalapeΓ±o Biscuits with Apricot Butter Appetizer & whatever Lamb dish is on the menu; the ingredients have changed since my visit last summer... Last year the dish featured Gnocchi with Grilled Lemon and the best Basil Pesto ever!!! This season is Moroccan inspired with currants, chickpeas and lemon yogurt; I've seen pics of the plating - looks amazing. For any vegetarians, I tasted the Roasted Vegetable Risotto from a member at our table. It was so good.! And Chocolate Creme BrΓ»lΓ©e for dessert was amazing. Last summer's Lamb dish was so great, I ordered it twice over a 5 day trip when I had the chance to share Carthay Circle with my immediate family and then family members who we spent the day with us to have a day in the parks. If you have the chance or desire, try the WOC Dining menu. It was delicious and a great VIP spot designated just for Carthay Circle for the show. Enjoy! 😁 - Catski23  34.5 #6136 10:11AM
Thank you!  We are most tempted by the lamb, so glad to hear it's a good option! - Sarafina  491.7 #512 11:20AM
Can you see well from that area if you are short? I always try to go to the very front since as soon as someone is in front of me I can't see  - disneychu  486.6 #518 12:08PM
disneychu: I'm also short and also ride an electric scooter to get around the parks, so I end up sitting even shorter tan usual. To fully enjoy the meal give yourself 1 1/2 - 2 hours for the meal and then head to the designated area with as much lead time as possible. Ask reservations, but I think that you can enter the WOC Dinner VIP sections 1 hour before the show. The more time the better! Better chance to get up close with an uninstructed view; check with the cast members directing you to the standing area best for you! Have fun! 😁😁😁 - Catski23  34.5 #6136 1:07PM
Whoops! disneychu: unobstructed view; darn that Autocorrect! 😻😻😻 - Catski23  34.5 #6136 1:12PM

When did they stop giving physical readmittance passes? Indy went down earlier when I was on the stairs right before loading and when they had us leave, they just scanned your ticket or ap. Cool!

Last November they did the same thing for us. It was great - palomine96  20.6 #8042 2:44PM
Side note: I saw @IDVandalSkipperCM and was about to day hi, but she was busy evacuating guests from the transports - Sarafina  491.7 #512 3:23PM
They started a couple weeks ago!  I'm not sure who you saw evacing guests. I was on lunch! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2761.4 #64 3:34PM
It must have been IDVandalSkipperCM's doppelganger. I've seen her a few times. Also someone impersonating you with the same name sometimes. - DLKenCA  3779.0 #50 4:07PM

Cool news though I still see a lot of paper readmission passes so is it only select attractions that scan? - missmimi90  2086.9 #96 3:40PM
good question!  I saw it at Indy and Soarin (which apparently lost it's scanner so the CM at the line break had no way to verify and just let a family of three in) - Sarafina  491.7 #512 3:54PM
Paper ones are out there still since technology isn't that reliable. We're trying to do mostly electronic though.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2761.4 #64 4:21PM

So I saw a pic on Instagram of a 3D Castle Puzzle that looks like crystal/diamond. Can someone post a clearer pic and tell me how much?  I think it was in one of the stores on Main Street.

Hi there! : ) I just saw it in the WOD yesterday. It's 19.95 before AP discount, I believe. : ) - jennyangel25  21.5 #7859 2:30PM

Hi All, I'm thinking of visiting the parks this Saturday and was wondering what the day after the 24 hour party is like?  I would plan to be there are rope drop and my hope is that all the 24hr people will be sleeping in.  What do you all think?

Sounds good in theory... thats probably what i would plan also. Good luck, only time will tell if it works. Regardless of the outcome it is still Disneyland and you are sure to enjoy. - kimdis  65.0 #4630 2:18PM
