Ask for the adventure tower shortest walk and views are good
The last time we stayed at DLH we were in the Frontier Tower. It has the longest walk to the parks! However we had a room that faced the pool and we were able to see some of the fireworks which we did with the piped in soundtrack. I hope you all have a blast! - PrincessDuckie 735.4 #218 9-3-13 6:38PMLike(1)Reply
We stayed in the Frontier Tower that faced the pool and where we were we could see the fireworks. I love that hotel and you are not gonna want to leave! The headboard is to die for! I hope you guys have a wonderful time. - dumbbunny 626.2 #277 9-3-13 6:46PMLike(1)Reply
I think it depends on where you are in the Fantasy Tower vs the Adventure Tower as to which has the shortest walk to the parks. I was originally in Fantasy, asked for an upgrade, and ended up with a great pool view and a shorter walk than the original room. Regardless, iit's an amazing place to stay! Congrats :) - Manawalea 30.5 #5301 9-4-13 12:02AMLikeReply
Click on Events at the top of the Lounge page. It has a list of meet ups. If you don't see one, you could host your own, but as it is a bit last minute, please don't take it personally if no one shows up. Have a great day! - JenGwen323 1322.3 #102 9-1-13 2:05PMLike(1)Reply
Well, someone mentioned something about being in Dancing With Disney tomorrow from 1-5 because it's the last day ever and they would be there that entire time. It's not posted in Events and I couldn't find it through search. - MrsSchnooks 2833.0 #37 9-1-13 2:13PMLikeReply
Love Disney memories line that. One time Alice did the same with my daughter took to the front of the line for Alice in wonderland just because
Now that is Disney Magic!!! Please stop by and tell City Hall about those 2 StormTroopers, it's not often that soldiers of the Galactic Empire are commended for good deeds. 😜 - nerdgirl 82.4 #3666 9-1-13 2:40PMLike(3)Reply
Everyone dresses up, and there were more adults than kids at the Disneyland Halloween Party. Your ticket explains what costumes are allowed. It is a fun party. - hillstones 9.4 #9809 9-1-13 11:26AMLike(1)Reply
Everybody dress up! It's always fun to dress up and yes, most everybody is costumed to some degree. You should also do a search of cadaver call to see if there is a posting of the night you are going so you can discuss with other MWers! Have a spooky good time! - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor 405.6 #481 9-1-13 9:57AMLikeReply
I just woke up and saw this!!! Wow, what a great thing to wake up to. Not only did my husband post on MW (never thought I'd see that), but what an amazingly nice first post. Thank you everyone for all the kind words...I'm definitely feeling the love. I am so fortunate to have such supportive and inspiring people in my life. 😋 - goofymom2boys 1440.8 #94 9-1-13 3:46PMLikeReply

Apparently the wonderful state of California said something about the rear seating area entrance being to close for passengers to the end of the loading ramp and presented a fall hazard as passengers entered and exited the monorail
I was told that they didn't appreciate me horsing around in there. My bad... - Slotherini 1053.6 #146 8-27-13 8:36PMLikeReply
I saw people riding in the front on Sunday. Not sure why they recently changed the rules though. - Arielkitten13 141.5 #2710 8-27-13 8:44PMLikeReply
Thoughts prayers and some pixie dust to you...crowds today were pretty light
When my mom went to Heaven, i went through the same thing but I had siblings and no one wanted to help me because of a lot of issues in our family. Plus it was sudden and all of a sudden I am now completely in charge of a brother who is difficult at best to deal with his mental illness and disabilities. so i am crying for you right now and know exactly what you are going through and if I could hug you right through the computer I would. I am just so sorry, sorry, sorry, and you need to give yourself a day where you sit with her and have a coffee or snack or whatever just like you used to so you know you can talk to her at any time, it is just something that helps, my sister in law gave me that pearl of wisdom a year later. she and her mom have "coffee" about once a week. it helps you heal and the first few convos will be full of tears and hurt. after a year or a few it does not get better, but you learn to live with it. embrace her, talk about her with your daughter,( I wrote everything down in a book about her so I would not forget anything). that is what is so hard for me, I have no one rational to talk to who knew her and can reminisce with and it sounds like you need help with that too. dm me for my number, I can meet you at dl or wherever if you just need someone to talk to about her. I will cry with you, whatever you need, just so sorry for your loss. Dear Lord, please bless our sweet friend and give her comfort to remember all the wonderful times she had with her mom, and please let her know You are there, she is not alone ever. and help us be a comfort to her too. thank You Lord, in Jesus's name, Amen. - secretagentangel 1300.9 #103 8-24-13 10:35PMLike(10)Reply
✨💫(pixie dust and a shooting star for wishing the well wishes to you) it's been fairly crowded the last few days but I bet on Tuesday being practically perfect. We are all real sorry for your loss and hope you find the strength you need to take your mini for a most magical day in remembrance of your wonderful mum. ✨💫(more pixie dust and shooting star for even more well wishes) - GrumpyPirateDad 1812.5 #73 8-24-13 10:17PMLike(5)Reply
I am so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation, but I had the support of my brother. It's still never easy and I still have a hard time with it. After my mom's passing, my brother and I took our families to Disneyland a week later. At first I thought I shouldn't be going that soon, but it was truly the best thing that I could do. It lifted my spirits so much, even though there were lots of tears from the memories. You have lots of love and support here and if you ever need to talk, I know that many of us would be happy to listen anytime. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and sending you pixie dust and a big hug. - snowwannab 692.5 #239 8-25-13 11:48AMLike(1)Reply
From the bottom of my heart, I thank each of you for taking the time to send us pixie dust, prayers and comforting words. I am not much for words right now. I am sorry. But please know I thank each of you deeply. - LuvsTigger 917.5 #167 8-25-13 11:35AMLikeReply
Hehe !! My daughter loves Duffy the moment they met . My 5 year old said mommy I just didn't wanna let go ! Duffy is so fluffy !! I did have to tell her ok mama other ppl would like to meet Duffy you can let go now lol !! - jmza4 258.4 #31532 8-23-13 11:19PMLikeReply
I like Duffy (not love, per se), but even I think that dedicating a store to Duffy is a little too much. C'mon, he's just a teddy that Mickey takes with him on trips....:0/ - LaBelleParis 928.5 #164 8-23-13 7:32PMLikeReply
I have seen him at the park on more then one occasion
He's often seen at the parks, and he's always wearing this. I believe he may be (oh dear, how to put this)....he may not be all there? - susieQzee 548.3 #325 8-16-13 9:56PMLike(2)Reply
I think there's a fine line. I'm sure DL wants people to celebrate their favorite characters and express their creativity, but they also need to A) maintain the integrity of the real DL characters and B) make sure guests are safe. I'm sure most guests are fine, but if any random guy could put on a full Jack Sparrow costume and start posing for photos, you could potentially have a serious safety issue. Because of the outfit and their trust in the character, guests could easily be taken advantage of. Just my opinion. I like costumes and such, but safety is an issue. :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar 549.0 #323 8-16-13 9:32PMLike(1)Reply
They really want to not confuse the kids... Heck, they even have Mickey and Minnie stop signing autographs when it's time for them to go perform in soundsational... every little detail is covered :) - KylaShea 629.1 #273 8-16-13 10:32PMLikeReply
The taste of a chimi after walking the parks and the smell of the train riding around the park hang tough it always gets better
There's always a feeling of giddy excitement, arriving before park opening, getting a spot close to the gates, seeing all the smiling faces, full of eager anticipation. Then, counting down from 10, knowing, just inside those gates, I become a kid again, carefree and ready to soar. - MamaRoo 466.4 #399 8-10-13 12:43AMLike(3)Reply
That euphoric feeling you get when you hear the chimes after the CM scans your AP and you decide which tunnel to enter through....... Aahhhhhhh - NascarDave 293.6 #856 8-10-13 1:51AMLike(3)Reply
I'm sorry about your week. Hope next week is better! Hmm...where to begin?...from the first "tweet" you hear as you enter, watching people pose in front of the Mickey, to seeing the train in the station...just knowing I'm lucky to be back at DL makes me happy :) - MissAmericaSings 357.8 #576 8-10-13 10:50AMLikeReply
