What was more fascinating was the fact that the actual fireworks just stopped but the music and projections continued and most people weren't looking around thinking "shouldn't there have been some sort of finale?"

If it gets too windy at elevation, the fireworks must not launch, even if that occurs mid-show. And yes, this is the massive smoke ring produced by the World of Color flame blast.  - Melody_CM  23026.8 #2 8:00AM
It's been a while since these pics have surfaced!  I think it has to do with the fire in the WOC show, but I myself have never actually seen it.  I can see where it would be pretty eerie! - AngiMouse  151.2 #2777 6:00AM

Please add me. While waiting for Soundsational, my 5 year old daughter got a bloody nose. Her shirt was completely ruined. A nurse came to attend her so that we wouldn't lose our parade spot. At the same time, another Cast Member presented my daughter with a new Minnie Mouse shirt to change into. My daughter was in tears scared from her bloody nose and they turned those tears into smilies...from a  More...

A CM experience that I observed aboard the Disneyland Railroad. A teenage girl and her parents boarded and something caught my eye. It was her white cane. She was visually impaired. She sat in the row closest to the entrance. It was the train car with only two long rows. A conductor called, "All aboard!" And we were off! This conductor stayed on the running boards and made small talk with the family. Being observant, he started verbally describing the scenery in detail and mentioning unique things. You could see her visualizing his words in her mind. As soon as I reached Main Street station, I hopped off and went straight to City Hall. I noted the CM's name and reported his exemplary behavior to a supervisor. I just thought he'd get a "gold star" in his file. No. She informed me he would be presented with a certificate in front of his coworkers in a ceremony. Wow! I had no idea.  He so deserved it!  - Saldogmom  4.2 #23369 7:18PM
Btw, pls do not enter me in the RAK. I just love to read the stories!  - Saldogmom  4.2 #23369 10:11PM
Back in the original DCA, my son and I were eating faces into our tortillas and then went to the bread factory. My son was a very young autistic boy and he was trying real hard to tell the employees it was his birthday. One of the CMs came out and gave him a mini Mickey sourdough bread. No one could touch nor eat of this special loaf. He ate it all at home and I don't think he was hungry the rest of the day. It was just really nice and special.  - Plumiegirl  10382.5 #9 5:55PM

On days when the FP machine is broken, the remaining shows of the day are standby. Β This happened this past Saturday. It never hurts to ask a CM at the Theatre.

Go to DCA first thing in your morning. Weekends, they could be gone by 11am. The earlier you get the FP, the earlier the show time you get. If you want a later show, the CM can tell you about when it will change. I recommend showing up at the beginning of your return time. You can sit and eat a snack while you wait. - Quiweez  908.7 #218 11:39AM

My experience was slightly different. We got the end of the fast time for the performance so we had balcony. After standing for 50 minutes we had to climb many sets of stairs to the balcony. While I have a bad hip I can usually handle it but the combination of standing so long then going up the stairs irritated my hip. When I went to use the elevator to go down I was told it was only for guests in wheel chairs. Going down the stairs is easier on my hip so I just took my time going down. A CM asked me when we were waiting for the show if Disney could contact me by email about the show. I haven't seen the email yet.  - Dizkid  503.8 #457 5:04PM

The Disneyland 'Parks and Tickets' sites has been down since before midnight.  Prior to that you could have bought $99 tickets that would be good through the end of the year.

Based on my calculations, Disney would bring in roughly $285,000,000 more dollars a year based on the new price scheme.  Hard to figure single ticket sales vs. people with passes, but this is sort of how it pans out.

Does this mean that the peak days will be blocked days for the signature pass along with the Christmas holiday? The Disney website says this pass will be blocked Christmas and "other peak days". - cinderelli  426.5 #553 6:22PM
As of right now, the Signature pass is still showing the same block out dates from 12/19 - 01/01.  I think they just mean those other peak days, for example 12/19, which is not a Holiday but is still considered a peak day for Disney.  - MariFICENT  195.2 #2132 7:29PM

The reserved area by IASW isn't bad and there's more room to spread out. It's also pretty good for the fireworks which usually come right after. They have similar castle projections on Small World. But the better showing of PTN is when it originates from Small World. From Main Street, it's a pretty sharp turn and the sight lines are not as good.

Good to know. It would be a good idea to share your feedback with City Hall. They might do something for you, but more importantly...that's the only way they know what the guests opinions are and if things are working or not. They might change the reserved area or at least expand it. - DLKenCA  2940.7 #50 10:33PM

We had a great spots for the PTN picnic meal. Right in front of small world entrance, a big area. We did sit o. The ground, but the area went up the stairs and behind there. There are walls to sit on. Fireworks were good too from there. We made sure to get the 1st parade so it started at Small World. Only complaint was the floats were close to us. But easily solved by sitting back a little. They didn't make everyone stand up so it was nice!  - emnldsmom  370.1 #655 6:43PM
