When do you think (if at all) Disneyland will use the Memory Maker system like Walt Disney World? I have this exact pose on my good camera but I kid you not, the Photopass/memory maker pics are way better! It was soo worth it! #WDW

Hopefully never. I just got back from WDW and they're still looking for missing, very expensive, pictures.  I heard, over there, in a year.  Due to a "technical problem", my video can't be restored. - Winnie111286  2978.1 #39 5:20PM
Oh no! I'm sorry! I didn't have any problems with my pictures or the videos. I hope you get it sorted out.  - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 5:22PM
I won't ever use it for reasons  like this. I have heard a lot of similar complaints about the system. - Lelundrial  507.0 #373 8:00PM
I have no idea what that is. Could you explain to those of us who have never been to WDW what Memory Maker is? 😊thanks - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5013.1 #18 5:24PM
Haha! Oops! We prepaid 150$ to be able to download all of our fast pass photos and videos. We took full advantage of it and ended up with over 100 pictures! Ride photos too!  - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 5:29PM
It's 169 now. The Mine Train and TOT have videos. Every picture taken by a PhotoPass is yours to keep. They scan your Magic Band except for the rides. You have to touch the band to a Ball thingy. The Magic Band is your lifeline at WDW. Everything is attached to it. It's on you all the time. - Winnie111286  2978.1 #39 7:57PM
It's also waterproof so you people can wear them to the water parks also. Everyone staying on property gets one.  - Winnie111286  2978.1 #39 8:05PM
The band looks too wide to have to wear on my wrist and would make a big tan line! No thanks. - debbiev  948.6 #170 8:38PM

Serious question. Would you take this bag to Disney World for a week? It's the most expensive purse I've ever owned, it could get dirty or ruined, BUT it's a Disney bag! Told you it was serious. 😊

Oh just take it!! - sawman911  669.1 #257 2:04PM
Take it...nothing will happen to it. Just don't put it on the floor or wet counter tops (bathrooms). I highly doubt you'll go on daredevil adventures where it will suffer a dreadful accident. Just take minor caution of where you put it and just think you're there to have fun πŸ˜ƒ - LaBelleParis  1175.1 #127 2:35PM
I know what you mean by serious lol I collect designer bags, disney and non disney. When I went last month, I didn't take any of my bags to the parks with me. I'm way too paranoid and OCD for that. If you are going to worry then don't take it. - luxkitty  2338.7 #51 3:15AM
I take mine to every Disney trip I make. It is yet to get dirty. So I vote TAKE IT! ☺️ - PixiePirateMaid  312.9 #752 7:58AM

We are heading to Disney World in less than 2 months and I am indecisive on what I should do about a camera! I have a mediocre camera and a mediocre camcorder. Both old and not fantastic. We have the Disney Memory Maker which gives us unlimited downloads on any Photopass photos so what would you do? Any recommendations? What about a GoPro? We are an active family, travel, ride motorcycles, and off  More...

I just got the new GoPro 4 Silver and it's awesome for those occasions when you have people in front of you and you don't want head shots in your way. It also takes movies and you don't need to worry about it getting out of focus. It comes with a few attachments, but I recommend buying the "selfie-stick", so there's no need to ask anyone to take your picture. πŸ˜ƒ - LaBelleParis  1175.1 #127 6:26PM
I think the combination of a GoPro and Photopass would be stellar! - MJmouse  273.6 #1030 6:46PM
Thanks, you guys! You definitely got me leaning towards a GoPro! I've seen mixed opinions on picture quality. Are the pictures similar to a point and shoot camera's quality? Thanks again for your help! - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 7:24PM
Look at Hendizl 's posts. I think you'll go with a go pro after seeing those! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  646.8 #272 7:31PM
Being an amateur photographer who shoots with a DSLR, the GoPro is good, but it only shoots in a wide angle, fish eye. If I were you, I would go with a more advanced point and shoot that does record good video also.  - BaseballMickey_CM  6787.5 #9 8:28PM

I think I left my snow white dress and socks at your place. Feel free to wear them as long as you wash it - philliprocks  1051.1 #152 11:34PM
We have folded them up in her suitcase without an issue in the past.  Not sure about the Elsa dress though, it's pretty big.   - MermaidHunter  116.6 #3165 6:04PM
Did you have a problem with the glitter? Disney glitter goes everywhere!  - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 6:20PM
That's true, EVERYWHERE. Forgot to mention we do put them in plastic bags.  It only takes once to learn that trick.  And when we drive, we hang them, but was assuming you meant you were flying to WDW - MermaidHunter  116.6 #3165 6:56PM
Yep, flying. And our luggage is going to have to be just the necessities since it's so darn expensive! Trying to figure this all out. - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 11:13PM
Items wrinkle less if you roll them. Place in a bag if your worried about glitter. When you get there just hang in the bathroom and the steam from the shower should take care of any wrinkles. Enjoy.  - sewedna  406.0 #497 10:47PM
Thanks everyone! I'll be bagging and rolling those dresses right on in! Can't wait! πŸ˜† - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 11:18PM

I saw that Christmas time at Disneyland begins November 13th and we are planning a visit November 11th and 12th. Figures. What I am curious about is what happens on the days just before the big changeover. Are the decorations up but the Christmas parade hasn't started? Will IASM be closed until the 13th? Please help! Thanks so much!

In my experience, the fireworks were Xmas already but the parade doesn't start Until the official date. IASW has been open prior to the start date also but there may be times it isn't. I would wait to see what the calendar on Disney says for it to be official - brodysmommy  398.9 #512 3:15PM
And yes pretty much all the decorations are up since they have to do it every night. There may be new ones the night before hit for the most part they are all up. They usually tape the parade for Xmas day the weekend or 2 before so most of then need to be up for that - brodysmommy  398.9 #512 3:16PM
In not sure about IASW or the parade, but I'm pretty sure most of the decor is up a few days before (maybe just a few last minute touches missing), so you'll have the Christmassy feel.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 3:18PM
The transformation for Xmas time at the. Parks begins very early. The parks start being decorated for Xmas time starting in mid October...the back portions of the parks are decorated first and make their way towards the will see snow on the castle before October is over and holiday merchandise in stores...after Halloween Time ends its a mad dash to place the final decor for the holidays in the front portions of the will see most holiday decor up before the official start of the holidays and the Xmas tree is put up too :-) IASM holiday version opens up as Xmas time in the parks officially begins :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7274.6 #7 3:21PM
Thanks everyone! I will be so sad if we don't get to go on IASM. :/ - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 3:40PM

Parents: Disney is magical at any and every age, but at what age would you say would be or have been the MOST magical for your kids? I'm writing something and looking into the argument over the golden age to take kids to Disneyland. Thank you!

I think that the "golden" age is different for every kid.  In my opinion, the best time is when they are old enough to ride most rides without being too scared, yet young enough to still believe in all of the magical experiences that make Disney so special. - angelaprkns  10.3 #9596 4:53PM
By the way, at 34, I am still young enough to buy into, and believe in the magic! - angelaprkns  10.3 #9596 4:54PM
I can't wait until my kids can ride all the rides without fear! That will be a huge milestone! Right now they're 4 & 2 so we miss the big rides!  - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 4:56PM
We're taking ours in the spring.  She will be 7 and probably will still be too scared for the big stuff!!!   - angelaprkns  10.3 #9596 5:02PM
Fingers crossed!! I got my 4 year old to go on Radiator Springs Racers and Soarin by watching YouTube videos! She realized they weren't scary! Now Splash, that won't happen for a while!  - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 5:11PM
I don't have kids of my own but when I saw my friends 5 year old  at the parks... It seemed to me like that is the golden age. - missmimi90  1708.2 #81 4:56PM
See, I also feel 5 is an awesome age. At around 6, children start distinguishing real from pretend. That has to be a sad day when you take your kids to disneyland and they have decided that characters aren't real. That will be worse for me than when they stop believing in Santa!  - MamalovesMinnie  15.7 #7506 5:00PM
My daughter is 9 and still believes!! - PrincessAuroraMomma  524.0 #353 6:24PM
I don't know if there truly is a magical age. I think every kid and every adult is different.  I think it all depends on the situation and the trip. I'm sure taking my granddaughter for her first trip will be very magical for me and my kids. But for her will probably be later on in life - grumpyinphx  357.8 #591 8:19AM
My boyfriend and I go a lot to Disneyland. We are over 28 and still believe the magic! We always say "that's Disney magic for you!" When something awesome happens while there. I know my parents took me to Walt disney world when I was 5 and I don't remember it at all! - PrincessDaisy  307.7 #794 9:06AM

Good afternoon! Last time we were at DL, I saw a man drawing characters as letters on name plaques near the Matterhorn. Each letter was either a princess or a pirate, etc. Can anyone tell me the name of the company and if they are still there? I'd love to get one for my daughter. I should have just bought it when I saw it. Now I'm kicking myself! πŸ˜’

Don't know the name of the company but I believe that person is there all the time  - bobster56  230.3 #1511 2:45PM

About an hour ago, Frozen merchandise was completely stocked on the Disney Store website. I added an Elsa dress to my shopping cart and then it disappeared. Now they are completely sold out! Anna dresses are still in at the moment. This Frozen craze is insane!

The $20 off coupon is valid today, so the dresses are $30. I'm not surprised. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  646.8 #272 11:06AM

Mother's Day is one of my favorite days at the park. Like others said, they give out carnations to all of the moms and the main entrance. Also, there are many places that offer special menus for this day. If you check our News section, I posted a some info about these special food selections, along with the full menu from the Disney Parks Blog.
