hello all! Need some help. wondering what to pack as don't know socal weather this time of year. Coming down from up north (Calgary, Canada). Also any suggestions on a good outlet mall near Anaheim or LA? Thank you!

We see many people coming from Canada and wearing shorts and no jackets. They laugh at us when we are bundled up with ski parkas when it's 55 degrees at night.  It's around 70 degrees in the day and 55 at night right now. Probably pretty warm for you. Probably be more concerned that it might rain. But you can buy cheap ponchos.  What are you looking for from an outlet mall? There aren't any good "outlet" malls around here. There is "The Citadel" in City of Industry. It's about as close to an "outlet" that's close to the parks. The Outlets at Orange is a mall that isn't really an outlet...even though they call it that. - DLKenCA  3016.0 #51 4:15PM
Orange isn't a true "Outlet" but you can still get great deals there. - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4485.5 #34 4:25PM
I don't understand why they call the Orange one an outlet mall, I haven't gone there in 4 years or so, but last time I was there, it just had the regular mall stores.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  659.1 #335 4:26PM
Thank you so much. - bearlove  154.4 #2747 4:47PM
Looking for designer outlet s - bearlove  154.4 #2747 4:51PM
There is actually an outlet mall in Orange very close to Disneyland (formally called the block). And there are multiple outlets within 30-40 miles from there as well: Citadel, Lake Elsinore, Carlsbad outlets. But remember taking traffic into consideration they're quite some distance away. The ones in Orange would be closest about 15 mins out. Enjoy your trip! - JCfreak949  2.9 #57868 1:59PM
Thanks a lot. - bearlove  154.4 #2747 4:48PM
I am from upstate NY, not quite as cold as Calgary but I'm more used to seasons lol. Jeans, close toed shoes, and tshirts are great for the day. The thing different about here is how FAST it drops in temp so a sweatshirt is good for at night. It rarely rains here but have ponchos or umbrellas just in case. If it rains, you are GOLDEN because most locals don't like it and scatter like ants and you'll be left with a fairly empty park lol - missmimi90  2050.7 #88 4:56PM
You will be fine in shorts and a tee shirt. Maybe a jacket in the morning and at night. Jeans are fine too. The weather will be like a nice summer day in Calgary during this time.  - quote  168.5 #0 6:23PM

Has anyone stayed at Quality Inn Placentia or know of the area. We are planning on coming down end of nov and just wanted to know how the hotel or that area is. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Depends on part of placentia. is it near the 57? - secretagentangel  8513.1 #11 2:08PM
Yes i believe its right off of 57 - bearlove  154.4 #2747 10:17PM
Yes, we stayed there once.  2, maybe 3 years ago, I think. It's right by CSU Fullerton, and was easy to access the freeway.  It took a bit longer to get to DL than we would have preferred (10-15 mins).  Hotel was clean and they had a pretty good breakfast for the price of the room.  What we always remember was that there was a super-friendly and enthusiastic lady who set up the breakfast: she was a hoot!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  659.1 #335 10:27PM
Thank you so much  - bearlove  154.4 #2747 11:50AM
I have stayed there several times and found that I like it better than the Quality Inns that are closer to the parks.  It is clean, the rooms are spacious and the breakfast had something for everyone.  No parking fee, free wifi and helpful staff.  It is in an industrial area but I have never felt unsafe there.  If you don't mind staying a couple of miles away it is a good place to stay!   - verolly  1146.2 #174 12:06PM

Help please! Has anyone stayed at the Quality Inn Maingate on harbor Blvd across from Disneyland? any reviews will be helpful... Thank you! Comment

Yes. Great location,  a lot of the rooms have been remodeled. Ask for a ground floor room in the back and you can park right at your door. Basic breakfast service in the morning (toast, muffins, yogurt, waffles). Rooms are very small but worth it for the price and location.  - ShariRenee  12071.5 #8 9:24AM

My daughter is so excited for our upcoming trip that she asks me how many days we have left every morning. 27 days to go!!

Make her a Disney Trip countdown chain, using rings made out of construction paper.  Hang it from a wall or doorknob, and every day she can tear one off.   - Alicewhoareyou  2739.3 #55 7:30PM
Great idea! Thank you :) - bearlove  154.4 #2747 9:11PM
Thats what we did.  It started in December and now we are down to 16 days as of today.  It went from our dining room to all around the ceiling of the living room. - PrincessSassy  278.5 #1157 9:48PM

What is your favourite quote from a Disney movie? Mine is "I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it." –Alice (Alice in Wonderland)

If you can't say something nice, don't say nuthin' at all - Bo22  394.4 #614 8:21PM
I thought I had commented but it isn't showing! It's a song 'quote' from Pocahontas. "What I Love most about rivers is you can't step in the same river twice; the water's always changing, always flowing." - BibbidiBobbidiBooya  8.4 #13176 8:26PM

Question- how crowded is it usually in DL and California adventure last two weeks of June. Will four days be enough? We will have two seniors and two small kids with us.

Well since carsland will have just opened, it should be more crowded than usual. But summer is usually pretty crowded but managable. - katiesarahmommy  266.5 #1275 2:55PM
Usually, that's when the crowds pick up because most schools are out by then. And with the new additions opening this summer, its going to be extra crowded. I think four days is good.
- BaseballMickey  8086.7 #13 2:56PM
It's very crowded at that time.  Also consider that the opening of Carsland and Buena Busta Street will probably draw even larger crowds to the resort.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  659.1 #335 2:58PM
Hello! Many California kids get out of school by then but I've never been to the parks on a late June. I've heard its crowded though since its summer. Oh and a tip of advice! Get the guest assistance pass for the seniors, especially if they have a cane or wheelchair. It'll be easier that way and 4 days is more than enough for both parks :) have a great trip! - MissAlice  343.5 #746 2:58PM
