Just got to the parks, not sure why but Anaheim PD is closing off the parking structure.

When this happens, turn right on Magic Way, then right on Walnut, go thru Ball Rd, turn right on South, thru the residential to Manchester turn right and catch the bridge into the structure. This is the shortest way back and in.. - Quiweez  1371.0 #158 10:24AM
This happened to us when we were with  people who knew they did this. We went to a gas, snack shop close by and when we returned 15 min later the structure was open again. I would have never known except for the people we were with. I'm glad to have this confirmed. I guess it is widely known by those who always use Mickey and Friends. We are usually at a hotel and don't need parking. - snowgrey  11.9 #11041 3:43PM
The disneyland resort and Anaheim pd have a great relation and helps out especially with street control.this is actually one of the duties is close and open the structureย  - pikaplaid  8119.4 #16 12:52PM

I know it would be a logistical challenge but I would love to see a monorail stop at DCA!

I wish it went to laguna Beach - Dave  13913.3 #8 10:08AM
And make a stop in hermosa beach too please!  - secretagentangel  13591.5 #9 12:31AM
It goes right by grizzly peak area. I think a platform over there would be nice! - MellieKay  316.2 #940 9:19AM
I wish it went to NorCal.  - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #168 11:48PM
i agree.  or putting a monorail 'highspeed rail'  around dca and stopping at the maingate and where monument valley meets pacific wharf.  could put the monorail thru a tunnel behind carsland so it does not ruin the scale of monument valley.  with a diorama of calif history or something.  i think of that a lot when i am going back and forth on sore feet! - MsTikiMermadam  2297.2 #83 11:55PM

Hey fellow MW'ers- is it strange to go to DL alone? The grandson is busy and the wife has other things going on tomorrow, and I wanted to go to the parks to hang out, look at decorations and ride a few attractions. Is that weird? What say ye?

not at all...lots of people take solo days in the parks! go and enjoy yourself!  - luxkitty  5790.3 #27 1:34PM

We made the decision to allow our passes to expire last February and have been going to the parks far less (only when a close friend/CM signs us in. We tried not to use that much, because we felt like we were using out friend. Yesterday we went and made the decision that we could once again afford the premium passes, so we bought them. Expensive, but worth it. Now if I could just find a way into c  More...

Had the opportunity to shop at Company D this afternoon thanks to a CM friend of mine and it was pretty cool. The wife and I picked up some pretty nice jackets and a pair of new watches as well as a few other things. It was pretty awesome, and was one more thing I can check off my "things to do at Disney" list!

Sounds like you aren't broke from going there like I would be! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  367.6 #718 11:59PM

The wife and I happened to be in OC today, so decided to "pop-in" for an hour or so. As long as we have been coming to DL, I have not been in the Tiki Room for over 25 years (and she's never seen it); we usually just walk right by it. Today I said-"Hey, lets go in the Tiki Room!" (I actually remembered the Tiki song) I also detest pineapple, so I've never tried a Dole Whip. Tod  More...
