Off topic but I am asking for pixie dust and prayers for my brother and all the other firefighters up there. I just heard from him and he is having a rough time seeing friends and coworkers hurt and has been out over 44 days trying to keep our community safe so please send thoughts prayers or pixie dust to those fighting

Lord, please protect the firefighters, police, and first responders and all the families involved as they fight all the fires around our country. Please put the fires out and protect everyone and everything. We thank You in advance. In Jesus's name, Amen. 😘 - secretagentangel  2434.9 #53 7:25PM

Does anyone get this when trying to access their e-tickets? Does it ever get fixed my MIL bought us the tickets on her card and figured e-tickets were fine but now it says the name of the card holder has to be there to pick them up and she won't be with us :(

I believe someone else said they called and asked and you did not have to have the person present.  - MellieKay  263.7 #1185 1:12PM

I purchased mine online. I didn't receive a confirmation nor the tickets. However, the charge posted to my account. I called and was advised that there was a glitch, and I'll have to go to the ticket booth to receive the tickets. They instructed me to have my ID and the credit card used to purchase the tickets. What a bummer! I was hoping for convenience, but it is what it is. The party should be a lot of fun!  - BibbidiBobbidiBoo  83.7 #3778 1:19PM

Yikes I dunno how I will handle this since it was my MIL card and she won't be present  - excmdlgurl  305.2 #842 1:23PM
I had to give them my credit card number over the phone to receive verification of the purchase. In all my years purchasing e-tickets nothing like this ever happened. After I spoke with someone, I also sent an email so that I had a response for my records.  Since I received nothing via email. I was advised that this glitch affected a lot of folks. I would think that there are others in a similar situation as you are. I'm certain they'll work with you.  - BibbidiBobbidiBoo  83.7 #3778 1:32PM

Yay I got my mickeys Halloween party tickets for not just one but two nights that we are there!!!! So excited! Does anyone know how late the park is open for the party and if there is a showing of fantasmic?

I don't think there's going to be fantasmic because one of the candy lines goes through that area. Also the cadaver dans do several performances there and they add fog to the river.  - secretagentangel  2434.9 #53 10:33PM
In previous years, there were the halloween screams fireworks but no Fantasmic. This year I believe they will have the same fireworks along with the Paint the Night parade. Not sure if there will be one or two shows for each party.  - Madgesty  125.7 #3052 10:28AM

Does anyone know if the park does extended hours durning October? We just booked our trip and hoping to have some late nights in the park :)

Oct is considerd fall hours. So the parks will close early Mon thru Fri. Usually by 9pm.  They also open later at 10. On the weekends they will open at 9 and usually close at 11.  Remember there are Halloween parties so Disneyland will close early for guest without tickets.  DCA during the week will keep it's early hours but close a little later on Fri. Hope that helps.  - PrincessAuroraMomma  587.2 #332 8:10AM
Last time we went (which was several years ago now), the parks were open late on the weekends, but closed earlier during the week.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  602.8 #326 8:50AM

My sweet 8 year old brother in law just got diagnosed with type one diabetes to cheer him up we are planning a trip for him in October is there a way to get nutrition facts for foods inside Disneyland so he can still eat some of the foods in the park? How do those that have diabetes manage it while in the park besides the obvious of packing snacks ect

I was diagnosed at four. If they haven't already, his parents should talk to his doctor about an insulin pump. But that's a whooole other topic. With him being so young, he may or may not be on a ratio insulin regimen. If he's not, talk to the dr before the trip and see if they can give him a rate for correcting for carbs/blood sugars. This way he doesn't haven't to be the only one not eating a churro. Myfitnesspal.com has nutrition info including carb counts for lots of the items found at Disneyland, and a quick google search will usually find the rest. Also keep in mind that there are lots of low/non-carb goodies at dl: pickles, bacon-wrapped asparagus and turkey legs are a few of my favorites. Make sure you take a glucagon kit. All that walking can do a number on blood sugars! Hopefully you won't need to use it, but if you do, it might be a good idea to head to first aid afterwards since they can cause nausea for up to an hour after. Remember that first aid will store anything (like insulin) that needs to be kept cold, though honestly most brands are fine for 24-48 hours without refrigeration. If he's going to be with a large group of kids, I'd say that for me the biggest thing at this age is to make sure he still feels like a normal kid. A little tact and sneakiness goes a long way!Finally, especially if you're going for multiple days, remember that the preparedness needs to extend past the park. Almost every trip, I have a low blood sugar in the middle of the night, so I keep apple juice and fruit snacks right next to my bed. And I always make sure I have my insurance cards and doctors phone numbers, just in case. I'm sorry for the super long post...but I know how lonely this disease can feel. People lump it together with type 2 but it's entirely different! So please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions.  - LittleAprilShowers  563.4 #345 2:08PM
Yikes! That was long-winded. 😳 Sorry. - LittleAprilShowers  563.4 #345 2:12PM

Is it true that if you do the dining package at river bell terrace you can watch fantasmic from the chairs and tables outside? I have a back injury and was going to pay for blue bayou but sitting on the ground(even padded) won't work with my new disability so the chairs would be fantastic

My husband and I did the desert and fantasmic last year so idk if it's still the same but when you reserve the preferred viewing for fantasmic you get to sit in chairs and they give you desert and whatever you want to drink like hot chocolate then you watch fantasmic right there - hendrixfamily  1.2 #0 8:33PM

it would be great to sit at river belle,  total drag.  with your back issue,  get a wheelchair,  and use it as needed.  like during a show.  and park it for the minutes or hours when you can walk.  i have not had to use a cane in over a year,  but any day the pain can come back.  I have not had to use a cane at the park.  but have gone to fenway park with a cane, crutches and a cast on my foot!  make use of anything that will make your trip easier to deal with. - MsTikiMermadam  614.5 #316 9:54PM

Do you guys think they will have fall hotel room discounts this year? My extended family has received some news concerning my 8 year old brother in law and to turn a sad situation into happy we want to take him to Disneyland in October for Halloween since he's never been. Hotel prices at the Disney resort hotels are giant right now

Yes, they post the discounted rates by quarter, or so I was told by a hotel CM. This is what I did, based on her recommendation: I booked my room at the Grand Californian for November several months early. The rate is insanely high, but she said when the discounted rates are posted, to call the reservation hotline again and have the discount applied to my existing reservation. I believe you have 5 days before your reservation date, to cancel - just in case.  - DeadliestPassholder  289.6 #935 10:07AM

50mm is good for portraits at about Β 5 ft away. With my t5i I use a tamron 17-55 2.8 with my ISO set at 12800, that is my all around lens & does great In dark & light but it depends on your camera as much as the lens - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1823.2 #86 7:27PM
