does anyone know if they sell pet supplies in the parks? like collars or tags?

I think I some some pet stuff in Downtown Disney last I was there? - potatohead25  862.9 #263 7:08PM
I know they sell collars at World Of Disney at DTD. Also bowls, little food mats and other pet accessories. Not sure about tags though! - Nyghtngale  572.3 #417 7:10PM
You can make leather collars at the store that sells leather bracelets in frontierland. I can't think of the name though, it's right across from the shooting gallery. They're really nice and prices range based on collar size and charms you add to it. - Nicole  380.2 #694 7:12PM
I don't know why, but at first glance I thought it said "does anyone know if they sell puppies in the parks." - Alicewhoareyou  2819.0 #63 7:18PM

starting June 18th hotel guests will get to get in to the parks an hour earlier than other guests. does anyone know if they will still be letting people in to California adventure a half hour early through the Grand Californian hotel entrance?

i believe that the cm told me that guests of DLR will be able to get in an hour early. if you stay 3 days, you can get a in a second day early. And if you have an AP and made an RSVP to get in early , on selected days per park, BONUS - misschurro  10082.2 #12 10:24PM

has anyone been able to experiance the power walk through california adventure available through the paradise pier hotel? sound like fun, but not sure how it exactly works.

I've watched them do it from my balcony at the Grand while I sit and had coffee. Does that count? Lol - SueBayou  2019.2 #99 12:26AM

question about woc fast passes. does everyone in your party need to be present to get the fastpasses or can 1 person go get them? I have 7 people going. also if I go through the grand californian entrance where do I find where to get the fast passes? thanks :)

They don't have to be present, but the tickets must be activated (used for entry) that day. So say you are going to breakfast at storytellers, have everyone walk through the entrance, take their tickets, and they can leave. The fp distribution is right across the grand entrance, at the grizzly fp machines. - bluefairy  643.8 #372 2:03PM
You need to have everyone's Tickets/APs, and all tickets have to have been activated/scanned in that day to be able to generate a fast pass. I dont think they have to be right next to you to get them, but they have to be at the park at the time you get the FPs. Hope that helps! πŸ˜ƒ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4410.2 #43 2:04PM
In order to get the FP, you have to have scanned your pass at the entry booth. You can't take people's tickets who haven't yet entered the park and get a FP for them. The WOC fastpass distribution is located at Grizzly River Run. - Mimmy  1442.4 #150 2:05PM

I have not tried it, but that's what I was told when we stayed at the Grand :)

good morning! I have a question about Tom sawyer island ( which I think might be a different name now) I have always wanted to go on it but never seem to get the chance. is the only way to get there on the canoes? and how much does it cost to rent them? thanks!

There is a raft that you can take across also. And none of the attractions in Disneyland cost to ride. - Mrsblue  693.1 #348 7:02AM
u beat me - Irisheyes  272.7 #1296 7:04AM
you get there by raft, the canoes are free but don't go to the island. the raft is just before the canoes. - Irisheyes  272.7 #1296 7:03AM

with a WC you can get from the dock to the old fort, but not much else. mind you, it is most just dirt and quite hilly/bumpy. not really fun to push someone around. - FantasmicFan82  195.0 #2228 11:33AM

has anyone ever had the "dream makers" make up a gift basket and have in your hotel room when you arrive? I want an idea of how much it costs and if it's worth it πŸŽ‰ thanks!

We have done several, the most expensive was around $400 but we got a lot, we have also done some smaller packages which were nice, you can call the dream makers and they'll email you the amenities list. - DisneyTrueLove  8.1 #14371 8:52AM
Oh fun! I didn't know this! Next week I will be there.. And I wanted to do something special for my friends! So I'm making... The cutest goodie bags! And I hope I can arrange a way to have them set up before they get into the room!! If you can not afford the dream makers magic! Make your own! Once you have a idea everything should come together!!! - UrsulasTwin  323.7 #906 8:55AM
I'm going to call today and see what they say. I wanted to get some graduation Mickey ears and maybe some balloons. I'll post on here what I found out 😊 - shellbelle  28.6 #6744 11:14AM
That would be awesome if you fill us in on what you find out! I may call sometime soon as well to look into anniversary basket pricings. If it's too much I'll find another way to do something cool for them. - PiecesOf8  610.8 #392 11:45AM

Hi everyone! i have a question about portraits that you can have done in disneyland. I think they Are chalk drawings in new Orleans square. I would like to have this done with my kids when we go this year. can anyone let me know where it's located? and how much they cost or if they even still have this :) thank you!

There are several locations. There are a few in front of the Blue Bayou/Club 33 area (like said above) and there's also one down the street by the NOS restrooms. Also, there are some in DTD by the Lego store.  - BaseballMickey  9257.8 #14 2:33PM
It's in the same row as Blue Bayou... Sometimes right across and sometimes further down by the bathrooms. I don't know how much it is now. - OwlAndTigger  30.2 #6563 12:15PM

hi everyone. this my first post! my family and I are taking a road trip from Washington to Disneyland in june for my daughters graduation. when you go to Disneyland do you Go with a plan or do you just "wing it" ? I am a planner but I want to enjoy myself...any advise??

both are great ideas. have a plan/list of must do's but also be willing to do things spur of the moment like...hop on the Mark Twain bc it's about to take off, grab a Dole whip in the Tiki Room queue area (not the long line outside of it) and maybe Maynard will be working- get a pic! - misschurro  10082.2 #12 7:51PM
oh, and welcome ! :) - misschurro  10082.2 #12 7:51PM
I totally agree, have your list of things you don't want to miss, but be prepared to be flexible depending on what is happening while you're there. Have fun! - Duchess73  347.3 #791 7:59PM
great advise! but whos Maynard? :) - shellbelle  28.6 #6744 8:48PM
