Yes it does! So after Fantasmic if you want to stick around for the fireworks show, you'll get the snow there! I got to experience my first snow of the season at DL last night. Hoping to take Little Skipper on December 2nd. And can't wait to see her first sight of real snow December 31st!!!!! - IDVandalSkipperCM 2072.5 #55 11-20-13 9:27AMLikeReply
look on c-list sometimes people buy them and aren't able to use them but be carefull
Avoid Craigslist/Ebay and any ticket sharing site. You will lose your money since 99% of the hoppers for sale are fake and pictures are taken of guests using hoppers now. Just buy your ticket in advance (AAA, getawaytoday) and you should save some off the gate price of $244. - Linzee 868.9 #173 11-19-13 6:52AMLike(3)Reply
I would not buy from anywhere where it is a person selling tickets they have. You will not be able to use them. Search under Admin's posts. There is a site that gives MW members 2% off the cost of tickets. Not much, but it is the best I've seen. - mrAZdisney 30.7 #5176 11-19-13 6:48AMLike(1)Reply

It sounds like your trip has turned into her trip. I suggest you do what you want to do and have a wonderful time!!!

Good luck, take a deep breath and have fun!!! - Boundin 510.8 #352 11-19-13 12:33AMLikeReply

The best investment for any Disney trip is the Photo Pass. All of the ride photos are included in this package. There are CM's all over the park to take your picture. Have fun! - imjustsayin111 247.6 #1246 11-18-13 9:06AMLike(1)Reply
Utilize magic morning hours! It will allow your group to get certain attractions that have longer lines out of the way early and before general admission is let into the park - missmimi90 1383.3 #90 11-18-13 9:08AMLike(1)Reply

Definitely do all the holiday themed rides and shows - its a small world, jingle cruise, haunted mansions holiday + fireworks and parades. Also you can ride the Lilly belle car on the train. It is such a neat experience and one in sure all would love! Just make reservations at Main Street station first thing in the AM. - lohofosho 784.5 #197 11-18-13 9:08AMLikeReply

once again proving the point (i like to believe), that art, music, and creativity are the springboards that propel the human consciousness into a better, more positive plane. few things in this world hold the power to transcend the spirit as well as those that Walt chose to champion. cheers and goodwill to you and yours, always. - littleoysterz 242.3 #1318 11-16-13 2:35AMLikeReply

the week of xmas, xmas day until about jan 2 are among the busiest day at the park. some days do reach capacity at the dl side , so far dca is able to hold more crowds but hasnt reach capacity yet and there more space to move around. thre trick is to try and arrive early and try for fasspasses but some attractions run out by 12pm-2pm or you might get a return time close to park closing. patience is the biggest factor and most rides queue line will be extended to it's max. use mw as a time guide but be aware that with that many people in the park alot of phones and carriers struggle with getting a signal or connecting. But most important remember to enjoy your visit and create happy memories - pikarich 2710.1 #36 11-14-13 7:02PMLikeReply

There isn't really a short way because critter country doesn't connect to any other lands directly but NOS. Head for Adventureland, through New Orleans Square, past Haunted Mansion and to Splash. You won't have a super long wait for Splash first thing in the morning and most people headed the direction you would be going are trying to get to Haunted Mansion - missmimi90 1383.3 #90 11-14-13 6:41AMLikeReply

i wish they would let those of us who live out of state do the payment plan i'd be all over that
IMO...If someone has a cell phone, unlimited texting, unlimited internet, goes out to eat, goes to see movies, has a car payment, takes weekend trips, enjoys Starbucks, has cable TV, buys nice clothes then they have the money for the ap's...they simply don't like the idea of the price increase and choose not to partake in this particular luxury. - Linzee 868.9 #173 11-13-13 3:38PMLike(11)Reply

It's not in the park but the Tangaroa terrace out by the pool at the Disneyland Hotel has great breakfast lunch and dinner options that are really inexpensive. You don't have to be a Disneyland resort guest in order to go to the restaurant by the way. It's next to trader Sam's if you know where that is.
