My son is rambunctious, energetic, talkative, extroverted, and fearless, but when Princess Tiana asked him "what's your name, handsome?" he got quiet and bashfully said "Adrian" ❀️one of my favorite memories of our trip this week

Well it was #live when I was trying to upload it from Paint the Night. We got a table at the Plaza Inn and had a great view, and as an added perk they had patio warmers turned on so we were nice and cozy with great food and a perfect (uncrowded) view!

#fbf ... My son Jalen and I were fortunate enough to tour the Pixar animation studios in Oakland a couple years ago. A childhood friend of mine is an animator there. It was such a cool place, and I thought maybe I'd share some pics and info with y'all if anyone is interested.

I would like to ask your guys' opinion about Paint the Night viewing, and whether dining packages are worth it..... I (solo) will be bringing my two boys ages 5&9 this April. I can't wait for them to see the parade, it looks spectacular! I have searched MW posts on viewing packages for BB & aladdins oasis... I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for or against getting a package. Is the v  More...

I like to sit back by Small World. The parade usually starts there and then you can stay and see the fireworks. The Alladin viewing area is back there. No chairs, sit on the ground. - Taunton  1848.6 #101 2:05PM
I will post update tonight I have the Aladdin package tonight  - excmdlgurl  502.1 #464 4:19PM
Oh thank you!  - jalensmommy  200.1 #2079 4:42PM
Haven't done a dining package. I like watching it by Small World. We have found pretty good spots close to showtime. I have a very active toddler, so I usually bring snacks to help keep him occupied while we wait. Works well for us 😊 - MARVELus  751.7 #284 6:11PM
To me, PTN differs greatly based on your seats. We watched it once from the curb (so fun!) and once a few rows back near IASW and I could see nothing from a few rows back since they force everyone to stand (except for curb people). I get really frustrated that we're all comfy and seated up until 15 minutes before when they make everyone stand up and squish in like sardines. I'm 5' so it becomes impossible to see unless I'm in the front.  Good luck! I take my kids alone often too so i understand! - brigeet  650.3 #342 2:34PM

I am wondering if y'all with more Disneyland experience than me have recommendations on the best kid-friendly restaurants at the parks, other than character meals? I have a 9 and 5 year old. I've been browsing Mousewait's menus and reviews and have a list of a few that could be good, but I also wanted to ask first-hand if any of the parents on here have places to recommend that your kids particula  More...

We love Tortilla Jo's in Downtown Disney! Tableside guacamole is a must! There is a kids menu and there is usually a "balloonologist" who comes around and will make balloon characters for the kiddos! My kiddos love that. 🎈 - EvilPrincess  407.3 #594 9:26AM
Oh that sounds awesome! I will add that to our list. Thanks very much! - jalensmommy  200.1 #2079 9:41AM

I have a picky 9 year old and his favorites are Hungry Bear, Carnation and Pizza Port. Of course he loves hamburgers so any place that has burgers is good for him. He loves to snack when we are at the parks, churros, popcorn, pretzels!  - CM_tamstirr  560.5 #400 11:02AM
My girls really love the pasta and chicken at plaza inn. They are 3 & 8. They also like paradise pasta & pizza in DCA.  - BibbidiBobbidiMe  301.8 #975 5:00PM
I second the Plaza for pasta and chicken. Plus if there's a parade going on you can see it. I have a5 and 7 y.o. my tip: you can ask for double apples instead of both carrots and apples on the side. Other tip: you get so much food. We ask for all white meat and get two breasts so my husband and i can share a plate. - brigeet  650.3 #342 5:25PM
We also do the chicken and pasta also we share an adult chicken between me and my wife we usually ca eat there for a family of four for 36.00 with our discount with the deluxe pass - Howards  128.9 #3157 7:50PM
I eat like a 5 & 9 yr old. In DL I like the hot dogs at coke corner, cheddar garlic twist by fantasy faire, & pretzels. In DCA I like award weiners, burgers from smokejumpers,sandwiches from the warf, mac n cheese from Flos, pretzel bites from the cones, pasta from paradise pasta, also the corn on the cob. @RadiatorSprings4Ever may also add in any I missed - UTDISNEYFAMILY  2055.7 #87 5:10PM
jalensmommy My kids are pretty picky. My youngest likes the spaghetti at Boardwalk Pizza but I have to get the sauce on the side.  Whitewater Snacks is a hit. The atmosphere is pretty laid back. They like the grilled cheese and the oldest will get the pizza with light sauce.  They will both eat burgers from Smokejumpers but it has to be plain(meat, cheese and bun). Over at DL, I know they will eat the chicken and mashed potatoes from Plaza Inn(gravy on the side). I am always good to go at The Stage Door Cafe or The Golden Horseshoe with their nuggets and fries. A lot of times we just pack Subway and snack at the parks. Have fun!πŸ˜€ - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2482.9 #65 5:48PM

I found someone's wallet by the shuttles and turned it in...they can track people down if AP holders right?

Well if the person is still there most likely they will be checking Lost and Found. Otherwise, they have been known to mail items back to guests. My day's cane was mailed back to him after they found it - KissDclown  1089.2 #186 2:12PM
