I'm  an annual pass holder but always go in the morning so I haven't seen the parade thanks for sharing and your not kidding about the song  - snowwhiteswishingwell57  2.5 #0 4:37AM
Dave! Thanks for taking the time to film and upload this! I almost didn't watch because I haven't seen it. Wanted to be surprised. BUT since the girls aren't up yet, I figured it'd be ok to watch it with lilOmalley while I sip my coffee. I doubt he'd ever make it that late to see it in the parks. 😊 well, let me tell you, his little eyes lit up! Made me cry a little....sad to think this maybe out last year as Californians.

Tips on "Paint the Night" parade, "Disneyland Forever" fireworks, and 60th anniversary merchandise!"Paint the Night"- This new parade is 45 minutes long, from first step off to when the last float ends.  Also, due to its performance, this parade will only have ONE crossing (between Ariel's float and Slinky).  Also, the crossing will only go from East to West, with the excepti  More...

Just an FYI-DCA GC is being scheduled to help with Fantasmic since we work WOC. I personally have a shift on Monday 12/15 and I'm excited but nervous. I'm excited that I'll be working on the DL side doing a show I've never done before. I'm excited that I get to help fellow CMs with something that is new to them. I'm nervous because of all the push back and assumptions I'm hearing from everyone before this new system even starts. Disney is constantly looking to improve the guest experience, not make it worse. No one seems to like change but we all adapt quickly and things always seem to work out for the better. As Walt said himself, "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." I can tell you first had that every CM I know strives to preserve Walts vision, tradition and legacy daily. We do it because it's what makes Disneyland magical. Ok-I'm off my soap box, LOL  - CM_tamstirr  553.2 #350 10:53PM

Ok friends and family... If you were at the AP event tonight and you went to see Famtasmic, you found your apart of a beta test that seemed way out of space. What were you thoughts of this new seating .

I don't understand all the complaining at these events. I've seen people yell at others to hurry up with their pictures, pushing small children out if the way, and generally making these poor cast members lives miserable for things they have no control over. These are free special events to show Disney's appreciation for us. I guess it's just the new generation's sense of entitlement but I will be standing back saying "I told you so" when they decide to just do less AP events or just stop altogether due to the backlash and complains. And as far as the FP system, they said they are working the bugs out through trial and error. And let's try to remember that Disney does not cater to just AP holders. We are but a small percent of their guests. Maybe we can try to share the magic. Let's not ruin it for the people who just want to keep loving Disney. M'kay? - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #168 6:39PM

Its just like anything they change, it is very hard for people to accept change.  but also, people are more pushy and not so considerate on being kind to others or CM's because they all forget they are not the only one wanting whatever it is.  they are changing the DAS tomorrow, and I have been part of the pilot being linked to AP and it is a good thing, however it will take some getting used to, and people won't be able to take advantage of it by getting too many passes.  and everyone will have to get a wait time pass no matter the disability (this is my understanding of it) but it should be fair for everyone anyway.  I wonder if they bring in all the changes before Christmas to practice on the crowds while everyone is hopefully in a good mood!! - secretagentangel  2420.0 #53 6:50PM
M'kayyy well said buddy !  - mickeyat78  1874.9 #81 6:51PM

A- freaking- men!  - missmimi90  2002.9 #73 6:56PM
Agree. The AP appreciation events are such a privilege and we are lucky to be chosen to be the guinea pigs for new things!  - hleclair  55.4 #4420 6:58PM
Sadly, some APers are too comfortable--there's very little shame. They know the ins and outs of how the park runs, and exploit loopholes that tourists aren't aware of, or walk around with a holier than thou attitude because DL is their playground, and they think that somehow makes them better than others--many times they are diminishing the experience for someone else (butterfly effect). Β It's clear that Disney needs the AP options, but even if it's only a small portion of the total amount of AP holders, it starts to overtake the culture of the park. Β  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  602.6 #322 6:59PM
Spoonful_O_Sugar I completely agree! I will admit that I use some of  the loopholes I know about; but when Disney finds out about them and fixes them, I don't get mad. I figure it was nice while it lasted. But like I said, it's this false sense of entitlement that some AP holders have. They don't realize there are people who live far and can't go as often as we do and would kill for the opportunity to go to these events. Probably why they got rid of the So Cal select. Because I don't see how making more money is a bad thing. Just weeding out some of the bad locals. It sucks that some of the true Disney lovers will suffer but it is what it is.  - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #168 7:13PM
SpiritOfAdventure I agree with all that, sadly it's probably a small percentage of ap that act like that, but that attitude has an big impact  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  602.6 #322 7:33PM
I totally agree, I've only been to 1 of these in 4 years and wish I could have been there.  I think everyone just needs to be patient and wait for the kinks to work out.  If you are expecting perfection, please don't try the new system until a few months have gone by. - Sarafina  491.7 #407 8:56AM
This reminds me of the time The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead When the skies of November turn gloomy With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty That good ship and true was a bone to be chewed When the gales of November came early The ship was the pride of the American side Coming back from some mill in Wisconsin As the big freighters go, it was bigger than most With a crew and good captain well seasoned Concluding some terms with a couple of steel firms When they left fully loaded for Cleveland Then later that night when the ship's bell rang Could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'? The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound When the wave broke over the railing And every man knew, as the captain did too 'Twas the witch of November come stealin' The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait When the gales of November came slashin' When afternoon came it was freezing rain In the face of a hurricane west wind When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck Sayin' "Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya" At seven PM a main hatchway caved in He said, "Fellas, it's been good to know ya" The captain wired in he had water comin' in And the good ship and crew was in peril And later that night when his lights went out of sight Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald Does anyone know where the love of God goes When the waves turn the minutes to hours? The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay If they'd put fifteen more miles behind her They might have split up or they might have capsized They may have broke deep and took water And all that remains is the faces and the names Of the wives and the sons and the daughters Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings In the rooms of her ice-water mansion Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams The islands and bays are for sportsmen And farther below, Lake Ontario Takes in what Lake Erie can send her And the iron boats go as the mariners all know With the gales of November remembered In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed In the Maritime Sailors' Cathedral The church bell chimed 'til it rang twenty-nine times For each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee Superior, they said, never gives up her dead When the gales of November come early - Dave  13310.4 #2 2:37PM

I would just be thrilled if there was ever an AP Event when I was there!  Some people really don't understand how fortunate they are!  In 5 years of having an AP the only perk I have gotten was when I won the lottery to get to see Carsland perform-opening. Those are some precious memories and photos! It was worth the $$$ it cost to make an extra trip down. Be happy - DeneciePie  328.1 #715 7:29PM

You have said what many of us new people think every day. This site and the people on it have totally changed how I live. Someone told me last week that a RAK is an Act of Kindness which is what I try to do every day now whether letting someone merge in front of me in rush hour traffic, holding a door or even just saying something nice to someone. I too work hard for what I have but still struggle to a degree but I have a few things I would like to do to thank those on this site when Im in Disneyland next week (YEAH, almost there!). I just hope I can meet some of the wonderful people on this site, such as yourself. I hope you learn to love this Disney spirit as much as I do. - justme2012  142.5 #2784 10:50PM

Thank you, Fairygodfather for the reminder of why I love all things MW. I confess, I've been trying to indulge in my guilty pleasure that is this lounge a little less lately, but after reading this I can't remember why. On a very happy note, my husband just recently recieved a little (and much deserved) raise, and we are going to try our darndest to squeeze a Disney day out of it!!!
