So I want to buy a new lens for my camera to capture our upcoming Disney trip especially dark rides I'm looking at a cannon 50mm 1.4 but not sure if that do it. Does anyone have any tips of best lens for low light?

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  1623.7 #96 7:27PM

For low light buy the largest aperture size you can find.Β Mine is 1.2 and works good. - JimmythePooh  422.6 #482 3:11AM

Love my new phone case and yes I love it so much I MADE my iPhone 6+ fit whether it wanted to or not!

@Plumiegirl @debbiev I saw this case at The World of Disney. I bought another 60th anniversary case. The cheaper one for $19.99 and no lights πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1138.6 #144 11:46PM

So this sounds silly BUT if anyone has any special tips on how to make the Matterhorn a little bit of a smoother ride please share!

you just lean forward thats all you wont feel anything. hold on to the railing front and just lean forward  - Hendizl  2654.9 #43 1:37PM
This. - LuvsTigger  1464.5 #103 2:17PM
I find that if I just let go it is smoother- same with Indiana Jones.  I don't hold on, I just relax.  It helps avoid the strain.   - Thumper13  486.9 #403 1:40PM
Yes! Pretend you're a piece of spaghetti! Only way I can ride Indy!  - secretagentangel  1705.0 #87 1:47PM
Spaghetti is the best way to describe it! - Thumper13  486.9 #403 2:27PM
Yep, my Indy riding strategy. And front right of jeep for some reason.  - MrsSchnooks  3112.3 #40 3:03PM
I don't sit with my back against the seat. I sit more forward and place my hands on the rest of the seat in front of me. I don't get that bone jarrying nearly as much when I sit that way. - Lelundrial  569.4 #335 3:25PM
I sit Indian style (I'm Cherokee so I can say it lol) And I have no trouble with the bumps sitting comfy - FoolishMortal138  356.6 #606 3:33PM
And as I was reading all the other answers, I'm noticing the key is to not lean back. I'm leaning forward when sitting Indian style  - FoolishMortal138  356.6 #606 3:34PM

So honestly I'm thinking of bringing cushions in a backpack for riding the Matterhorn. I had back surgery and am super tall. I could maybe do without but not smart. Do you think cms would let you put a cushion behind your back before you put on your seatbelt?

I don't think if I had back surgery I would even consider going on it. Its never going to be a smooth ride. I wouldn't risk it.  - ocmommy  341.6 #651 2:04PM

We will be there thanksgiving week and I'm so hoping to get a good mash of both holiday and 60th decor! We've never been other than the summer so we have no idea what to expect. It's both exciting and scary. - TheBearandtheBow  65.4 #4107 2:40AM

So excited the hatbox ghost is back! The big question do you guys think he will stay during the holiday months???? Or with the holiday haunted mansion will he disappear?!

oh..... I had not thought of that. We are going down for late October. I was really looking forward to seeing him but now I'm worried. - disneychef  7.6 #0 11:10AM
See!!! I just thought that too we are planning a trip in November and were so excited to see him! But who knows what they will do... - excmdlgurl  294.7 #878 11:12AM
good point about the holiday nbc overlay.  and future trip planners remember,  the haunted mansion CLOSES for refurb in the end of AUG! - MsTikiMermadam  337.0 #669 2:00PM
No one volunteered, so he came back for good! - MadameLeota  2896.5 #41 2:50PM
When does the mansion usually reopen after the holidays maybe that would be a better time to see him instead of the summer craziness - excmdlgurl  294.7 #878 12:19PM

So advice! I NEED a Disneyland trip ASAP unfortunately I gotta save a little. Do I go ahead and book our trip at the grand now? Or wait until the fall deals come out and book then? I'm thinking October or November trip :)

Book now, if deals come out they will adjust the price. - richiii3  667.7 #276 2:59PM
Agree, book it now that way you get the dates and room you want.  - CoachDisney  79.0 #3817 9:24PM
book soon. We just booked for middle of October with ourDVC membership and there were no availabilities for Grand or Disneyland and very few for paradise pier. With the 60 year going on and normal stuff as well don't be surprised if you might have problems getting the rooms you want. - disneychef  7.6 #0 10:35PM
Just be sure to stay on top of it...they won't tell you if the price goes down.  Just periodically check the website for promo rates and call when you see one.  They're very cool about adjusting...but I agree...book now for the best room you can afford and hope for the best (I do this every year!). - msdizmaui  644.9 #288 12:41AM
I always book when I know I'm going. Then I just check the site daily to see if any offers come up.  If they do, I call and the cast member adjusts pricing.   If you wait, the room might not be available  - fab5  149.9 #2631 5:41AM

Ok totally agonizing! Both Peter Pan and pirates are a favorite ride which tote would u get if both were your favorite but you could only afford one? Thanks in advance!

I like the color scheme of the Peter Pan one the best. I also agree with whoever said there isn't much Peter Pan stuff to buy. But, honestly?  I would buy them both. In fact, what are those other ones there?  πŸ˜‚. (And I know you said you could get just one. That's why you probably shouldn't go shopping with me. Bad influence. 😬) - MeridaFan  3551.4 #36 6:05PM

Omg that's nearly impossible.. Out of your two choices I love the Peter Pan tote,, but for some reason im digging the dumbo or even haunted!  - therealJackandSally  99.8 #0 11:21PM
is the peter pan one black or navy?  it looks like it would go with more stuff than the pirates one. - MsTikiMermadam  337.0 #669 6:06AM

Ok I hope this isn't breaking any rules but I am wondering if Thursday someone can pick up a diamond pin for me I think it's turquoise. Please let me know eBay just wants crazy prices

Hope someone can help you. A lot of MWers are asking for assistance with diamond pins and with them changing to wristband events it will be difficult to get more than 2 pins to help others out. - missmimi90  2001.1 #69 1:07PM
How is the wristband given out?  - secretagentangel  1705.0 #87 10:31PM
@secretagentangel wristbands will be given out beginning @ 7am near pin traders in DTD. I'll probably get there around 5 am (not looking forward to it but I NEED to complete this set). - luxkitty  2649.5 #44 12:02AM
Wow luxkitty you go! I would but ended up having back surgery scheduled for Wednesday so doc says no running to get pins the next morning :-/  - excmdlgurl  294.7 #878 12:04AM
Yes...and bad enough I already struggle with insomnia so I probably won't sleep at all. These pins are giving me anxiety.  - luxkitty  2649.5 #44 12:06AM
@luxkitty you got this!  - LaPearleNoir  1593.3 #97 10:09AM
I share your anxiety luxkitty. Getting pins shouldn't be this stressful - missmimi90  2001.1 #69 11:15AM
I know we really want one too for my son. They go so fast though and they are limiting it. I was going to get one on Ebay and they are way to much. I even know a personal shopper and they arent sure if they can get me one. Good luck! - keepmovingforward  202.3 #1886 10:27AM
No problem just thought I would ask :)  - excmdlgurl  294.7 #878 9:47PM
I hope someone is able to help you out. - luxkitty  2649.5 #44 12:03AM
Wait, is it this Thursday? I just might be there but not until later in the day if at all.... Close but no dice.  - LaPearleNoir  1593.3 #97 10:08AM
I think it is the 19th - keepmovingforward  202.3 #1886 10:21AM
