Question time! We are taking our son on a surprise Disneyland trip in 15 days (it's killing me to keep the secret)! But...question is, he loves both the Goofy Kitchen Character Breakfast and the Character Breakfast inside DL park as well. Which one do you prefer and why? I want to get one booked but am torn on which one to go with for this trip. Thanks!!

I would do it at Plaza Inn since you are there for a short time. Get in the park with your Magic Morning, and book breakfast for maybe 90 minutes or two hours after you get into the park. Have a little something to hold you until then. Get a lot of rides in during those early hours, then you can relax and enjoy breakfast. Be ready with your camera and have an autograph book, as well. Have fun! I'm glad you decided to go for it! - MeridaFan  3585.2 #37 10:24PM
😍😍😍😍 miss you my friend ,hiiiii πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹ - pikarich  4454.1 #25 10:27PM
Great suggestions, thank you! I am glad we decided to go for it too. Keeping this secret has been so hard but I know it will make the excitement to go even more by us waiting to tell him. We've even have it all planned out with how we are telling him 😍 - DisneyDreamer18  184.5 #2132 10:27PM
I totally agree with MeridaFan !  Every minute in the park is magical!!!!! - DisneyPrincessT  98.7 #3519 10:31PM
I would make the reservation now to make sure they have space. Especially since that weekend will probably be busy. Nice thing is the Magic Morning or Early Entry, is a little later due to the race, I believe. But you won't be able to get in that day without a res in advance. You will have an awesome time!  And since you're at the awesome Grand, when it's hot in The afternoon, you can go back for a swim and regroup before coming back to the park in the evening and catching that new parade and fireworks show!  πŸ˜ - MeridaFan  3585.2 #37 11:27PM
It's changed a bit now, goofy kitchen gives you the most as far as food selection but the character here are now mostly of the fab five, inside at the plaza inn the food is limited but you get a bit more of variety of characters  - pikarich  4454.1 #25 10:08PM
What about the Grand Californian character breakfast? We haven't done that one before.  - DisneyDreamer18  184.5 #2132 10:09PM
They have more of the vegetarian options there and more fruit you can look at their menu on the website but there characters are more of the forest variety from pocahontas, brother bear, lion king and sometimes jungle book - pikarich  4454.1 #25 10:18PM

We have done Goofy's Twice and love it.  We get 7 am reservstions and then we can be in the park by 8.  Their food is fantastic and we pig out.  I want to feel full and satisfied after a meal, especially since they aren't cheap. - dianeburns1998  68.6 #4059 10:37PM

Okay need people's thoughts: I have a crazy idea of booking a last minute trip over Labor Day weekend for my husband, son and I for a surprise get away for our son before school starts. We are from Oregon so airfare, etc would happen....what would you do? We do also have a bigger 7 day Disneyland vacation booked 115 days from now but I am getting my first bonus from work and just feel like doing   More...

Lol - Hendizl  2768.0 #43 11:50PM
I hate to be on the opposing team but if it were me, I'd wait and save the and spend it on something fun and spontaneous on your next trip (115 days from now!) For me, hot weather and huge, last days of summer crowds wouldn't make for a fun vacation. I'd take the time to research some really fun and exciting activities and surprises... Plus, you'd probably have some money left over by not having to book new, last minute plane and hotel reservations. You can also spend the money on the new 60th merchandise and treats plus anything for the winter holidays. Congratulations on your bonus! 😻😻😻 - Catski23  9.3 #0 2:49PM
Ya gotta pointπŸ‘ - DarthFairy  179.9 #2189 4:26PM
Go the week before Labor Day we are smaller crowds much more enjoyable  - Shawnalynne  11.5 #0 4:56AM
i wish we could but based on time off work it's the only weekend we can do. We are going to go for it, we go again for 8 days beginning of December so at least whatever we can't do this trip we can do on the next one.  - DisneyDreamer18  184.5 #2132 10:15PM
for me, it would depend on how much i miss Disneyland. i'll take the crowds and heat if i miss it really bad, like now. :'( - OhanaPhoto  3821.7 #33 11:57AM

Our next Disney trip is in 389 days (seems like forevee) for a big family trip to celebrate my big 3-0...cannot wait. Well anyways, just thought I would say hi and introduce myself back in the community. I look forward to getting to know all of you!

I know I don't post here a lot, but I've been on Mousewait for a while. I'm asking for mounds of pixie dust for my family. My husband, son and I were just delivered news that our Labrador has Addison's Disease. It's a rare disease and not typically seen in labs. Almost two weeks ago we got the scare of our life waking up to him tremmoring and extreme lethargy. 2 days later of being on constant IV   More...

Thank you! He has responded very well to treatment so far. He will have to have an injection every 25 days for the remainder of his life plus a half dose of an oral steroid. Expensive, yes but he's family and no matter the price we will do whatever it takes to make him healthy and with us for 8-10 more years. - DisneyDreamer18  184.5 #2132 8:49PM

Alright so we have finally hit only 83 days left until we leave to Disney for a week! I'm always interested to hear others favorite food places, fun things to do, etc. So please share your little secrets of fun things you and your family do while at Disneyland! And....go!

Personally, besides the attractions and food, I love to wander the shops, especially on Main Street. I never get to do that as much as I want, but hopefully this trip will give me a little more time, since it's a mom & dad only trip!  - BaronessVonShush  120.6 #3147 10:28AM
I love to try and look for disney secrets while I am in the park, like hidden mickeys or other hidden surprises. Look up some books like Hidden Mickey and Lots of things to do in line. I read both of those and it was great to find while waiting and walking around.😊 - Disneypirategirl  192.2 #2025 10:35AM

Very much missing Disneyland right now. This trip brought on a lot of memories as a child for me, brought back memories of taking our son for the first time at 6 months old and creating new memories on this trip. I will admit I cried on our last night, but if it wasn't for Walt and his dream I wouldn't be able to have and create the memories that my family and I can. So until next year Disneyland,  More...

I always feel so bad for all the people I meet who have to go home and not come back for a long time, I always tell them to join MouseWait to help them through the withdrawls! - secretagentangel  2201.4 #64 10:19PM
