I apologize in advance if this is redundant --I did search the lounge using different key words first but didn't find the info--I have in the past seen reserved seating for the fireworks and parade --can anyone tell me what I have to purchase to get those seats? I'm taking my nieces and nephew for the first time and I want to make sure they can see. Thank you

I believe they are club 33 members that are having that reserved. However I do not know. Maybe just calling Disney and asking will get you a free pass to the reserved section on a special night. Disney is full of magic! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  367.5 #697 6:13AM
Not sure of your time of year you are talking about going, but the holiday tour includes seats in the afternoon for the Holiday Parade. Β $68 per person, with an AP discount. $80 with no discount. Three-hour tour, includes three rides (I'm guessing it is still HMH, IASW, and the Jingle Cruise. Β No seats for the fireworks though, unless you hire a plaid. $400, or she might have said $400-500 per hour. 6-hour minimum, up to 10 people.Β  - MeridaFan  4254.9 #43 10:42AM
It's per hour. 😱  - JenGwen323  2193.6 #86 4:23PM
That's what I said. πŸ˜‚. Either $400 per hour or $400-500 per hour. I guess it wasn't very clear. So, minimum of $2400-3000. Split among 10 people, not so bad. - MeridaFan  4254.9 #43 4:30PM
Last year it was $300 per hour non peak times but peak times $360 per hour - UTDISNEYFAMILY  3035.6 #55 5:42PM
Wow. That's a nice jump!  UTDISNEYFAMILY - MeridaFan  4254.9 #43 7:39PM

So question for the all knowing mouse wait community. I know people do engagement photo shoots at Disney. I was wanting to do a wedding photo shoot (why no, I don't have a ring yet but a girl can dream) do you think Disneyland would object if we showed up in wedding attire? I'm thinking tea length dress not some over the top ball gown. Thanks in advance.

Hi. Congratulations and may you both live "happily ever after". I'm not a spokesperson so I encourage you to review the Disneyland Resort attire guidelines by visiting Disneyland dot com. Also, for additional questions (and fun) visit fairytaleweddings dot com. Best wishes.  - MickeyLumboCM  1367.6 #151 6:32AM
You need to have a Disneyland wedding booked to take a shoot there in wedding outfits. You could do honeymoon outfits!  - secretagentangel  11073.3 #9 11:00PM
Sadly I saw someone try to do this the other day and they were stopped at the gates .. Not sure if they were ever allowed in. I have looked into wedding/photos at DLR and there are rules as to what attire is allowed in the parks.. I believe no formal attire such as bridal dress. Being a bridal stylist, i think you may be able to find a tea length gown you could sneak in as "not" a bridal gown.. I've also thought about what you are suggesting, coming to the parks dressed for wedding type photos, but park in the downtown Disney parking lot then walk into the gazebo at the rose court garden on the way to downtown & sneak some shots inthere! That's my best idea so far lol .. & congrats on your upcoming nuptials whenever they may be πŸ‘° - therealJackandSally  359.8 #0 10:20AM
Thank you :) I like the idea but yeah that's my fear making the plans and getting stopped there - bks4lou  222.2 #1839 5:04AM
I say that you take photos during Mickey's Halloween Party and say it's your costume. It's cheaper to get in and you would have lovely night time shots. Probably wouldn't work but could they deny you dressing as bride and groom???? Hmmm.... - DisneyBrideΒ°OΒ°  448.9 #552 6:03AM

Had to share my find. .39 original price --I paid $1! So many awesome pages inside --whoever owned it before only colored a few pages. As someone who didn't grow up anywhere near Disneyland and so has no early memories or family with memorabilia it's super cool to find some.

Since I couldn't be at the park today to enjoy the festivities I figured I'd make myself feel slightly better by foolishly spending money on something completely ridiculous and useless but oh so cute!!! A teeny tiny Minnie backpack.

Now, I could probably carry that around fully loaded all day!  πŸ˜Š. Enjoy!  You should go make some cupcakes, too.  - MeridaFan  4254.9 #43 6:02PM

Ran out of room on the mouse ears pin board I had made so I took some old bulletin board like frames I had bought from a clothing store that was going out of business and created my new pin board :)

I searched for this puzzle when there last week and they were sold out. A CM said they would be getting it back in. If anyone notices that it is restocked can you please let me know? Thank you in advance.

To deal with my Disneyland hangover I completed this puzzle of my favorite attraction. Word of warning--this puzzle has absolutely tiny pieces which I didn't realize until too late and I lost a piece. But it's tiny so you have to look closely to notice.

Good job πŸ‘πŸ» - Dizkid  505.7 #467 8:35PM

Splurged on new Disney Crocs ---my feet wish I had found them at the beginning of the trip rather than the end. Aren't they cute?!!

Those are very cute! I know a couple of years ago I had really bad blisters and my feet were hurting so bad. I went into run Disney in Dtd dw just to look and came out spending 105.00 and didn't even get a real or if shoes. Got some fitted inserts and flip flops with arches and was the best thing I ever felt. Made a huge difference. Love them.  - mmddgp  1686.4 #2 12:05PM
it is worth paying that for sandals if they do not hurt your feet!  is the arch squishy or firm? - MsTikiMermadam  1940.1 #102 4:31PM
I agree!  It's better to spend a lot on one pair that you'll wear a lot and be comfortable in, than to spend half the money on shoes that either hurt, or you don't wear very often.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  706.4 #323 5:00PM
It's firm with a little give but not squishy.  - bks4lou  222.2 #1839 6:54PM

Flag retreat. I always tear up.

The Flag retreat is always wonderful, but if you have a chance to see if with the All American College Band, it's even more special.  It was so impressive!  They play a lot more songs than at the normal retreat. It's a must see if you haven't yet.  - snowwannab  759.3 #298 8:21PM
