I have recently returned from a very long hiatus to the Disneyland experience. I enjoy DCA, black pearls, the grand californian, Pirates and World of Color.

Hey Mousewaiters!! Anyone have an idea of cost for lunch at Club33 these days? Excluding tax, tip and alcohol?

Our lunch was the cost of an adult park hopper ticket, give or take. - tiggertwin  332.9 #853 12:20PM
Thanks for the info! Uncle has a lot of tickets to get in and I am trying to figure out if I can afford. Take care! - matthewgarcia5  143.8 #3001 12:26PM

HI mousewatiers..... I am REALLY sorry to ask this question but I just cannot figure out how to do a DM. Little Help??

When you go on a users profile next to their user name, you'll see the letters 'DM' click it, write, and send! - AndieHawkins  366.6 #729 7:29PM
Thanks sooooooo much. I feel like such an idiot for having to ask. - matthewgarcia5  143.8 #3001 7:35PM
You're welcome! Have a magical day! - AndieHawkins  366.6 #729 7:48PM
to set up DM go to, my mw, profile, then you can set up the DM feature. - CallMeFlower  424.0 #611 7:37PM

Took the plunge and went to DL on Labor Day with my son and wife. A wee bit crowded. The goats from big thunder ranch send their hellos.

Hey Mousewaiters! Just wondering about how bad the crowds are on Labor Day? Is it just super crazy or not so much. I was just there Thursday and the entire park was wide open.

I'm sure it will be packed. No block outs on APs + Holiday + 1/2 Marathon weekend= potentially lots of happy people. 😄 - joyfulmomma  266.2 #1347 9:46PM
hmmmmm... well i would be with my 1 1/2 year old son soooooooooo Im not so sure about mass crowds. - matthewgarcia5  143.8 #3001 9:49PM
I took my 2,4,&5 year olds (a couple years back) flying solo on crowded days. We still had a blast! It's Disneyland, afterall! - joyfulmomma  266.2 #1347 9:59PM
I'll be there tomorrow. Let's see how much trouble we can cause - ScooterMike  1963.0 #103 9:45PM
Wish we had a way to know exactly which way the crowd index is going to go. Hope the dice roll in favor of a Disney day for you and your little man! - makingmemories  311.9 #976 10:01PM

#Retro (sorry a little late) This picture was taken in 1982 with my grandmother and I (I was 6 or 7). It was taken at the Sunkist Hut directly across from the Jungle Ride. Sadly at the time of this photo (and unknown to me) my grandmother was dying from advanced lung cancer. She loved all things Disney and wanted one last trip with me before the end. I miss her to this day but I think of her whe  More...

I'm so glad you had time with her and at DL. What a sweet picture, thanks for sharing it with us. - adisneyfamily  1092.7 #211 9:16PM
I have always been extremely grateful to have this photo and memory. Don't want to make this a sad post, just trying to demonstrate its importance to me and how Disneyland is a part of that memory :) - matthewgarcia5  143.8 #3001 9:29PM
II wonder if Walt really knew what DL would mean to so many people. I know I can feel my Dad and Grandparents there with me. - adisneyfamily  1092.7 #211 9:50PM
This is a great photo, she looked happy and full of joy! I'm glad you have this picture to cherish that day! Thank you for sharing - MarshaMouse  5058.3 #35 9:12PM

So I just got my first annual pass in March and it has completely renewed my love of all things Disney (I have been dormant for 17 years). So between Mousewait and going to the parks and my pins I am totally into the swing of things. Then my wife drops a bombshell today.... "Can't you just not mention Disneyland for 1 day." **sigh** I was crushed :(

:( Tis a hard thing. I myself struggle with this. My other half loves Disney but it gets a little old for him when I talk about it 24/7 visa versa I get bored of him talking only video games at times. Tis merley diffrence in the joys of life. It is okay if you have diffrent ones:) Be there to support hers and make sure she supports your both on a equally healthy level and you shall be otttay :)  - BooEve123  800.9 #286 12:13PM

It was so wonderful to share the excitement of the Up vinyls on Maybie's post last night!! When I got to work I was trying to share my excitement with my co workers but they were like " a what?" what is a vinylmation? - Disneymomblessedx3  363.1 #745 11:16PM
I dare not speak the word "Disneyland" around my family unless someone else brings it up. So that's why I come here. DISNEYLAND! MICKEY MOUSE! WALT DISNEY! Whoop whoop! 😁 - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #292 12:18PM
How do you do this?! I try so hard but something Disney ALWAYS falls out. The are times I really just stay nothing. - 559MickeyLover  335.8 #838 11:46PM

I was just yelled at admit that the other day!! And it doesn't help that I think Disney follows me.... They even played, go the distance, from hercules at NY college graduation... O.O - dreadpiratebubbles  69.1 #4483 12:43AM
About* and my* gosh.. I hate Swype and predictive texts.. Its, almost as bad as autocorrect. - dreadpiratebubbles  69.1 #4483 12:45AM
I'm sorry about that!!! :(. My husband luckily shares my love of Disney and loves taking our daughter as much as I do! - lynniesue42  232.4 #1735 11:11PM
However I do have friends that dont share or understand our love of Disney and feel the need to criticize us for "wasting" money there...I just tell them that I consider money spent on our daughters Disneyland memories are better referred to as an investment! :) - lynniesue42  232.4 #1735 11:13PM
