The Anna and Elsa meet and greet does anyone know if we need to get fast pass for it? We never gone to it before.

They don't offer fast pass any longer. The line is shorter. Rather quick :) - PracticallyPerfectDisneyDuck  155.6 #0 7:50PM
Great thanks I was hoping it was shorter now - calme2  36.2 #128 1:41PM

Anyone uses Disney Photo Pass. I wanted to get lots of pics since it's my grand daughter first time going to character breakfast meet and greet going to do the princess makeover we wanted to probably purchase a cd of all the photos. Anyone know how much. Any info you can give me and opinions will be great.

Cd are no longer an option and where discontinued.  There redid the photopass now called photopass+. There is one option where you can buy all the pictures with download I think it's Disney any day it let's you get all the picture from any one day so if you do this I would load up as many pics as possible on to one card or pass if available  - pikarich  5903.7 #22 12:22PM
So for the photo pass plus I need to take all my pictures in that one day if not if I take pictures on the other days of my trip. I have to pay per a photo is that correct - calme2  36.2 #128 12:58PM
Load all the pictures onto one photopass if possible as you visit the cms can load up the pics to that card. Then you go to Disney disneyphotopass site or at the resort . You can buy pics a la cart or download , or the best value is Disney one day as mentioned. If you need additional days there is no specials as this price is per day  - pikarich  5903.7 #22 1:26PM
However it works and whatever it costs, get it or you will regret it. Those memories cannot be replaced or duplicated especially since you said the word ' grand daughter'. Use the photo pass photographers as much as you can. I bought some and they do add a cute little 2016 or Star Wars graphic at the photo shop. - Bobbierocha  84.6 #3934 5:24PM
it is $39.99 for one day worth of pix.  or if only one pix i think it is about $12.99 or so.  and cannot put borders and stuff on them anymore.  i liked the $79.99 month long photopass better.   - MsTikiMermadam  1252.2 #142 3:07PM
you can buy each day of pix for $39.99 each day.  downloads only. - MsTikiMermadam  1252.2 #142 3:08PM

We are staying at the paradise pier and enter normally through California grand hotel entrance to DCA my daughter I'd staying though at a good neighbor hotel can she use this entrance after the park is open to general public

It used to be open to anyone after 11 am or if she is with you they just check one room key so she can enter with you - UTDISNEYFAMILY  2009.0 #85 1:12PM
As far as I know anyone can use it during normal hours.  Just Disney hotels guests can go in for early entry.  - keepmovingforward  258.2 #1310 1:05PM
I believe it's 11am that anyone can enter. it is NOT open for everyone during park hours. I tried last weekend and had to wait 10 minutes. Typically it's 1-2 hours after park opens. Otherwise you need a Disney hotel key....or eat at Storytellers and they will let you in without a room key also. - DLKenCA  2755.7 #53 2:01PM
If you eat at whitewater snacks you can go in by showing your receipt.  one time this happened to us as they said we needed a room key. But we had entered from the park to go to whitewater for breakfast. They accepted our receipt and let us in, none of us were staying at the hotel. - snowgrey  7.9 #13316 2:14PM

For World of Color on fast pass distribution can I bring my daughter theme park ticket and insert it to also get her a fast pass with us for world of color or does she have to be in line with us to get the fast pass

She doesn't have to be in the line with you, she just has to be checked into the park. We check in and the my son and husband go do things I dont ride while I get fastpasses. - keepmovingforward  258.2 #1310 1:01PM
I agree. I do his with my mom all the time as it is easier for one person to navigate through congested fastpass areas (star tours). So long as the park ticket has been used for admission on that day, if is eligible for fastpasses. - TheRealAlice  234.3 #1600 1:57PM
She has to be IN the park (scanned at front gate), but doesn't need to be with you. You can take your entire party's tickets and get them while they wait in another ride line. - DLKenCA  2755.7 #53 2:02PM

How does child swapping work? This is the first time we are bringing my grand daughter and she may not meet the height on some rides. Do we just wait in line and let someone know closer to getting on?

If yours is misbehaving you trade with another family for a "keeper".....πŸ˜† - carminaire  844.5 #223 12:47PM

Wait in line, tell person at front door. They should ask to see the child. You will then be given a rider swap pass good for whoever is watching the child plus 2 extra to go through FP line. - CM_Shadowgamer  2577.0 #59 12:30PM

I was wondering the same thing about my son. Do my husband and I both need a fast pass or just 1? And so if my son is asleep in his stroller we will be able to tell a CM at the entrance and not have to both go through the line to tell one right? - hendrixfamily  1.8 #0 7:03PM
Child has to wait outside with an adult.  You can roll the child up in the stroller to the CM at the entrance to the attraction.  As for the FP, really just one of you needs it if it's just the 2 of you and the child. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2579.8 #58 7:59PM

World of color dessert package at Disneyland. Has anyone went to this and how is the viewing area. Trying to decide if I should do the dessert package or the dinner package. Does anyone know the difference. Thanks guys for any info you can give

My understanding is the dessert has tables you sit at and dessert while you watch.  And the dinner ticket is a standing area after you've eaten dinner at the restaurant. - Taunton  1401.3 #130 9:31PM
I haven't done the desert package I was wondering the same thing when we saw world of colour we saw the dessert area was kind of back towards the little mermaid attraction with high tables and chairs but we would like info also - disneychu  164.2 #2553 8:37PM
Wherever you end up, try to be the first people in the front part of the section on your tier. It's all standing so it's hard to see with people right in front of you. - Taunton  1401.3 #130 7:25AM

If you mean the band in DCA it's because of the return of the Food and Wine festival. There is currently no news on their status after the festival has ended. - Donaldfan_532  248.1 #1418 9:47AM

I live in Hawaii and thinking of getting the deluxe annual pass when we come in October. Does anyone have it and what kind of discounts do you get on the Disney hotels. We plan on coming this October for 9 nights and then again sometime in 2017 for 9 nights again. Any info greatly appreciated

sometimes they have AP sales in the disney hotels,  but very limited.  some neighbor hotels give ap disc,  some do not.  mostly we get food and merch discounts.  but some special ap only events happen,  which is fun. - MsTikiMermadam  1252.2 #142 4:20PM
Howsit!  I live on Maui and only go to the parks once a year. The APs are definitely the way to go if you're staying for any length of time.  As long as you go next year before they expire, you get 2 years for WAY less than the price of Park Hoppers for two visits (plus you get the discounts on all your food and souvenir purchases)!   We're going this year the first  two weeks of August (our passes expire the 3rd week). We'll now wait to buy new ones when we go next year (so we start the 2-yr cycle again). Which island do you live on? - msdizmaui  752.9 #263 4:10PM
Oahu in Wahiawa - calme2  36.2 #128 4:13PM
I have the Signature (fka Premium) and i get 20% off of merchandise, 15% off food, plus free parking and Photo Pass downloads. I buy my husband the Deluxe because my pass has the better discounts - he only gets 10% off of food and merch, and no free parking or Photo Pass DL's. The Signature is only blocked the last couple of weeks in December, whereas the Deluxe has blackout days throughout the year.  - DeadliestPassholder  346.4 #710 6:13AM

So excited to bring my grand daughter to Disneyland for the first time the end of October this year. I can't wait to see her reactions and excitement. Anyone have any suggestions on what to do she will be almost 5 when we go

Definitely get her a First Visit  button and some character Meet n' Greet if the lines aren't too long for you. Have  - DisneyMom13  311.8 #874 6:44PM
Bibbity Bobbity  Boutique.  We did it with my daughter when she was 6, she loved it.  We brought her own princess dress with us, which made it more affordable, she was Ariel.  Then, after that, we went to Ariel's Grotto for lunch with the princesses.  We have an adorable picture of her dressed as Ariel, with Ariel in her ballgown. - dianeburns1998  96.7 #3704 6:48PM

My kids love all of the shows at fantasy faire. They're very well done and perfect for her age group. After the show wait to see of the princess(es) will come out for a photo opp/autograph. Sitting and watching a show is good downtime for the kids too. I guess you have to get fast passes for the shows now but if there's extra room they let the standby line in. I recommend sitting on the floor to watch. Much better seats. - brigeet  601.9 #352 10:09PM

Any ideas on getting good viewing for world of color? Should I purchase a Dinning package or how else can I get good viewing

Okay so we are APs and we went this year and we went on Halloween. We had a plast and got a lot of candy since it is the last day they need to get rid of the candy which I posted on my MW .... The tickets were around 84 dollars and you get into the park 3 hours before the actual party time so for example if the party is at 7 you can get in at 4. We went all day since we are APs.  - AlyssaDisneyland  427.7 #531 4:01PM
