Hello everyone! My husband and I are looking to do the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour and are looking for a bit more information. We do not know his work schedule until 9pm the day prior. Does anyone know if they do same day reservations if you arrive early enough? Does the tour often fill up and not have availability for same day? Thanks in advance!

Call them, 714.781.4636, they have all the answers. Usually a 30 day reservation. - Quiweez  857.3 #229 11:58AM
They usually fill up. Weekends are definitely harder to get in. Calling the number posted, they often can tell you how many spots are left and give you an idea. I don't think you can cancel, so make sure you can go. - DLKenCA  2916.1 #50 1:09PM
They do  fill up quick especially now that it's more busy!  - secretagentangel  7416.4 #14 12:48PM

Hello everyone! I'm attempting a trip with my 7 year old and now 5 month old, but in the evening to see Paint the Night parade. how early to people start lining the sidewalks to a view of the parade before the 8:50 showing??

I've seen people start saving seats as early as 5pm.  If you can, getting a seat for the 11pm showing is a lot easier since a lot of people leave after fireworks.  - SorcererD91  4097.8 #40 3:29PM
I kicked around the idea of the late ahowing, but am unsure how the kiddos would hold up that late...could be disater!! Haha how early do you suggest getting a spot for the late show?  - ktkakes  331.6 #775 3:38PM
For the usual parade I know it's around  8:15ish. For Paint the Night, since it's so new, I'd imagine at least 7:30-50 ish - KingdomKeeper1210  51.1 #0 3:15PM
I'm thinking the same. Just trying to plan appropriately so I'm not rushing and overwhelmed to get a decent spot. Thank you! - ktkakes  331.6 #775 3:26PM
Ive seen the early show 3 times, each time right across from its a small world. Yesterday I got there around 630 and got a front row seat. At that time there were still open spots available. I love seeing it there because you can see the parade gates open... I guess it's nostalgic for us because we would sit close to the parade gates too when the Electrical Parade was at California Adventure 😊 - Madgesty  773.6 #261 10:15AM
I'm now a fan of the Small World area for parades. Main Street is just too crazy.  - ktkakes  331.6 #775 11:51AM
So we did the late show last night. Got there early enough to see how crazy the early showing was and avoid Main street after dinner a Carnation.  Did end up getting to see Fantastic with my kiddo on my shoulders. Then walked toward Fantasy land by way of the backside of Big Thunder. In the process got to to watch the fireworks. We ended up sitting in front of Storybook Canal boats at 1015pm and it filled up shortly after. They apparently moved the 11pm show to 1045pm so it wasn't too bad of a wait. Thanks to everyone for input. The only downside to this spot is the Monorail beeps it's horn every 8 minutes or so and that kept startling the baby awake. She ended up staying awake for the parade and loved the colors so it worked out well! - ktkakes  331.6 #775 11:50AM

I am so glad you were there! I can't wait to spend more time with you and Emma! - Deltachiq  1244.3 #149 10:35AM

So the hubby and I are planning our daughter's 4th birthday in August. Last year we stayed at GCH and had them decorate the room. We do not have that kind of money this year and are thinking of staying at Paradise Pier since we have never stayed there. My husband mentioned HoJo and I am struggling with the idea of staying off property since I'm used to the constant Disney magic. The HoJo is half t  More...

Hojo is nice and a quick walk to the park. Great pool area for kids and nice rooms. You wouldn't miss out on any magic. - Zooter  1405.8 #131 10:57PM
I really think the pool is the huge selling point. Our daughter is a water baby so I don't think she would care where we stayed as long as water was near! - ktkakes  331.6 #775 11:13PM
I dont really know how to talk about this. We have trips where we spoil ourselves and trips where we don't. All of them are fun. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  641.8 #335 10:58PM
Ya last year was definitely a splurge! I guess I just have to tell myself to not compare the two events because they will be different. Thank you for the positive perspective! - ktkakes  331.6 #775 11:12PM
Yeah. It's definitely worth it to stay in the "Disney bubble," but it is a lot of money, and we can't do that more than once or twice a year. I love the Grand, but we have fun no matter where we stay :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  641.8 #335 11:14PM
The Grand is by far our favorite, but it's super pricey. I looked into AP rates for Paradise Pier, but the calendar only extends out through July so I think I'm going to give the reservation line a call to see what they can do. I'm hoping there will be a discount then just not yet updated online. We've been at the Disneyland Hotel as well and that's awesome too. But I would love to see WOC from our room. - ktkakes  331.6 #775 11:18PM
Staying on property is really nice and you can do some very sweet things for your kids. But as someone that has taken his daughter for her birthday for the last 5 years, there are so many other things you can do to make it special. Last year I planned a MW meetup for her. She still talks about filling a Jungle Cruise boat and all the other things we did. The people here are good people and you will find that this group can help you make memories you never thought possible. - Jaimz  651.4 #328 12:01AM
We love staying at the HoJo! Your daughter will LOVE their fun pool!! It's truly such a nice place to stay and a hop, skip, and a jump from the front gates! - MrsPrinceCharming 12:04AM

First time RAK! I got this photo album last year and never ended up using it. To be entered please tell me your favorite picture location in the resort. I will pick a random winner on 2/17. Good luck and hope I did this right! **i want to clarify that this is a photo album that hold 300 4x6 photos with an area to jot a few lines about each photo**

Please add me. My favorite picture location is in front of the castle moat, but slightly off to the right. ZeeAlice and I take a picture there every trip, so when we get really old, we can look back and see how we have changed over the years. - Slotherini  1079.8 #180 10:11AM

Got this CD set today from the music shop on Main ST and highly recommend it! Check out the song list...amazing! They also have other CDs with many other song choices that I was unaware of.
