I just wanted to share a story of Disney magic with you. My BF and I were at the parks a few weeks ago, and I introduced him to Dole Whips and got him an "I'm Celebrating My First Dole Whip" button. I made him wear it all day. lol. The next day, he left the pin at the hotel. We were on our way to the Haunted Mansion and saw Jack Skellington. When it was our turn to visit with him, Jack wagged his   More...

I'm helping my mom move, and came across this pic of my daughter and Merlin after she pulled the sword from the stone in about 2002. Awww, she was so little!

This isn't a great pic, but I'm hoping someone can help. My daughter traded for this pin last month because she liked the way it looked, but we have no idea what character it is. The back says Disney/Pixar, and the year is 2008. Any ideas? Thx!

It is one of the prizes from tsmm - Pixarprincess  544.5 #417 9:47PM

This was taken May 19 at our first ever Disney parade. My daughter LOVES Tink and said this was obviously the real Tink since she's the only one we've ever seen that had the hair and wings right. DD is a HUGE stickler for accurate Tink wings. (Much to my frustration when making them for five consecutive Halloweens. Lol)

Our trip this last weekend was full of firsts: a ride on the Monorail, watching a parade (something I've never done in all the times I've gone to DL), watching Fantasmic, and going in the bridge of the Mark Twain. We would have liked to have met some MWers while we were there (I even brought stuff to RAK!), but I was having phone issues, and wasn't able to access MW very much at all. :( Maybe nex  More...

We did a lot of firsts on our last trip too! Sorry you didn't get to meet any MWers but it sounds like you had a great time! Next trip, hit the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail or eat somewhere at the Grand, you can hook up to the wi-fi and do a RAK from there while you take a nice cool break! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #165 9:08AM
That's a great idea (going to the Grand). I'll keep that one in mind.  :)    - jmgphx  323.1 #848 9:10AM

This is from our trip last weekend. Thanks to all the MWers who posted about being able to go to the bridge of the Mark Twain. I think it was the highlight of my daughter's trip! When she was told she had the wheel and all she had to do was keep the ship in the water, she reached over, grabbed my hand, and put it on the wheel, too. She told me it was so I was responsible if it ran into something.   More...

What a magical memory! - Song  2242.4 #77 9:01AM
Oh hey its Captain Kenny! He's really nice.. He told us a lot about what happens with the Mark Twain during Fantasmic - MEHlanie_Mouse  1117.3 #178 10:49AM
That's odd, TeaJack. She signed the guest book, and while she was steering, he filled it out. She wants to get it framed. lol. She thought steering was cool, and loved that she got to blow the whistle and ring the bell, too. Captain Kenny was awesome - super nice guy.  - jmgphx  323.1 #848 11:37AM
I need to find him next time. Me and my sis went 2 weeks ago and the CM wasn't friendly at all. - iamdugsmaster  878.8 #228 3:35PM

Does anyone (CMs?) know what is going on with the Disney ticket website? I'm trying to purchase a ticket for a friend, and keep getting an error message at checkout that says, "We're sorry, our system is currently unavailable. Please try again later." It's been unavailable for about four hours now . . . .

Bump.  :) - jmgphx  323.1 #848 1:04PM
I cannot even get ahold of a person at the AP phone number. It says system is down on the recording??? - Zipitydoodahdad  270.0 #1245 1:16PM
I'm gonna bet they are getting a ton of angry callers. I hope not, the CM's answering the phones have nothing to do with price increases and I hate it when I see people jump all over a woerker for something they didn't do. Ot it could be tons of people calling to renew their pass to get it at the old price. - madsdad  1868.2 #100 1:28PM
I finally called and was told they are working on the system and to wait a bit. We're leaving Thursday, and I was hoping to have the ticket for our guest printed and ready to go by then (we have APs but he doesn't). I really don't want to wait and purchase at the ticket window since we get slightly discounted tix through my work. I guess I'll try again tomorrow!  - jmgphx  323.1 #848 3:41PM

What is the oddest Disney-related present you've ever given or received? Last year, I gave my daughter a jar of dirt for her 17th birthday (as a gag - she got other gifts, too), and she danced around all day singing Jack's line. It turned out to be her absolute favorite gift. lol

My dad gave me a tinkerbell stocking on christmas. I don't like tinkerbell. Ha. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #203 9:34AM
Oops. At least he tried, right? Sometimes that's all you can ask of a dad. lol - jmgphx  323.1 #848 9:38AM

First - I did a search ('cause it's my friend!) but didn't see the exact info I need. If I have a friend who lives in Cali purchase tickets for members of our group at the Cali resident price, does that Cali resident have to be at the park with the users of the discounted ticket? Basically, does the resident's ID only have to be shown to purchase the tickets, not at the turnstile?

I'm pretty sure she won't have to be there with you. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #203 3:42PM
Thanks, Jen. :) Does anyone know for sure? It would not be a good start to our girls' weekend to have to buy a second set of tickets once we got to the gates! - jmgphx  323.1 #848 4:07PM

I have a silly (aka stupid) question re the search feature. If I search for a specific word or phrase, the results show me the comments/original posts where the word appears. How can I see the whole conversation that that post appears in? (You'd think I'd have figured it out by now, but this has me stumped.) Thanks!

If you click reply or comment below... it should pull up the whole convo:)  - BooEve123  800.9 #259 11:49AM

When we were at DL last month, there were only 2 or 3 fireflies in the bayou area & no "cannonball splashes" in the ship/fort battle area. Does anyone know if these are permanent changes or if it was just a fluke & has been fixed? I missed both of those things . . . .

You sure you were at Disneyland? - Mouse4life  1681.4 #111 3:28PM
lol. Yep. We even went rode POTC three times! The first time, we noticed it, and made a point of really looking the other two times. We mentioned the missing fireflies to the CM, who said something about Maintenance and light bulbs. *shrug* - jmgphx  323.1 #848 3:44PM
My bf and I totally noticed this too when we were there at the end of febuary! We found it odd that there was no cannon splashes! But when we rode it later in the weekend there were back! Not sure! - CourtyAstroBlisters  808.0 #255 3:47PM
Well, at least I know it wasn't just us! lol. POTC is still awesome, but I hope they fix the fireflies and splashes before we get there at the end of May. Maybe it's silly, but the bayou and firefly area is my favorite part of the ride.  - jmgphx  323.1 #848 3:53PM
They are still there and if you look up in the sky you'll also see shooting stars. - shodge12  313.8 #898 4:31PM

I've invited one of my bff's on our next DL visit, but she is very VERY gluten intolerant. Any suggestions on dining in the park? Is it do-able (and affordable)? Thanks!

Thanks, everyone! I'll definitely look at the vegetarian book. And the info about talking to the chefs at the sit-down restaurants is good to know. I haven't had to deal with restrictions while reveling and had no idea they'd do this! :) - jmgphx  323.1 #848 10:31AM

Aw, thanks! I'm thinking about making a few more - I think if I can find fabric with Mickey/Minnie in the classic red/black/white color scheme, I can make one with some solid red and black squares. I think that would look really nice, too. (And I'll try to make sure there's no more "pooh on the corner." lol) - jmgphx  323.1 #848 2:01PM

Hello MouseWaiters! I recently found the MW app/site while prepping for our long-awaited DL trip (ten more days!!!). There should be a huge disclaimer on the dashboard saying "Caution - MW may be addictive." lol
