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 2717.1 #51 1-27-16 10:33PMLike(3)Reply
Good to know. They aren't going to make any money doing this if they don't provide a good experience. The word will get out. - DisneyMom13 297.4 #961 1-27-16 10:06PMLikeReply
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 369.9 #632 3-4-16 6:43PMLikeReply
Everyone keeps saying that the increases are made to keep the crowds down. Even with the large price increases every year or two it is becoming more crowded. I don't think it is working if that is there goal. I'm nervous that with t More...
As someone who doesn't live in SoCal and uses my AP only a couple or a few times a year, the increase really doesn't bother me at all. I have a Premium AP. The current cost of that pass was $779. New Signature Pass is $849 and it includes free PhotoPass access. This is actually a better deal than what I currently have for me. (I did just renew my Premium for $719, so I won't be getting the new pass, anyway.). Not everyone lives locally and can be at the parks 200 days each year. I have never gone during the Christmas break because, frankly, the crowds have scared me off. That is why we do thanksgiving when we want the holiday vibe. Don't the holidays begin around November 11th each year? So that is about two months' worth of holidays for those who wish to enjoy that time. If I were to renew my pass next year, I would simply get the Signature pass. I don't need the highest level just for two weeks at Christmas. I understand those who aren't happy. But, I do think it doesn't have to be as horrible as everyone is making it out to be. Disney is a business. They are in the business of making money, right along with letting you make memories. The new normal for some may have to be to see Disneyland as the treat that it is for much of the country or world who does not have it in their backyard. Hopefully, our lives are full of so many things. Disney is one part of it. It shouldn't be everything. Not trying to tick anyone off here. I do think their timing stinks with this. But, just wanted to show that there is another perspective and way of looking at this. 😊 - MeridaFan 4243.8 #36 10-4-15 10:51AMLike(40)Reply
I just genuinely wish they had a kids AP, it just doesn't seem right that my 3 yo will be paying the same ticket price and can't go on anything other than Fantasyland rides. - bellapistola 158.4 #2624 10-4-15 1:30AMLike(29)Reply
Thanks for all of the replies and advice! Cutting them up sounds like a great idea in order to make them easier to eat! Also love the idea of buying a few of them and bringing them home to eat later :D - MoonBelle 96.3 #3696 9-25-15 12:41AMLikeReply
we have stayed at most on harbor blvd and they are all really the same to us. BW park place inn is the closest and pretty good. Tropicana has been good also and a little cheaper. Fairfield has nice beds and a little bigger rooms but get o More...
What is too much $ to one person isn't to another. We like Parkvue Inn because it's directly across the street & includes free breakfast & free parking. The rooms just completed a remodel last year. They average about $160 a night - UTDISNEYFAMILY 1991.4 #86 9-15-15 6:46PMLike(3)Reply
I found AirB&B to have the best options and you can even have your own pool 3 bedrooms and one bath for the price of a single room at the Disneyland hotel. - FrozenFamily 14.8 #8880 9-15-15 6:59PMLike(1)Reply
I am so so sorry for your loss of Bronson. I know he was the heart of your hearts. I will pray for you always. Father God, we just don't understand Your ways, but we know You are in charge of everthing. And we know You have a purpose in everything. Please give this sweet momma and daddy and family the peace, the comfort, the love, the help and the direction from You they need and beg for. Help them and put Your blessings around them as they go through each coming day, and I beg You for their comforting. Please help. And thank You for the joy that Bronson brought into all their lives, please keep his love living in them forever until they're reunited with Him and You. Keep him safe in Your Everlasting arms and this family too. Thank You Lord, in Jesus's name we pray,Amen. any thing you need, any thing at all please tell us. Love love love and God bless.😞❤️❤️❤️❤️ - secretagentangel 5623.5 #23 9-14-15 4:56PMLike(30)Reply
"When a child is apart, even for a little while, a parent says a prayer. We ask the Lord to protect...to be where we cannot be, to go where we cannot go. In Him we place our trust, for He sees, He knows. Though how your heart must break, parted for now from your little one, know that the Lord keeps your little one safe, with Him, where we all belong. He will keep your child in a loving embrace, just as He keeps you, a child, too. That is His answer to a parent's prayer, that is His love...forever, everywhere." In God's name we pray, for you and your beautiful angel. - teach67 195.8 #2084 9-14-15 7:13AMLike(1)Reply

If its disney blog I'd believe it. Any other siteI'd wait and see, might be a rumour. I heardthey're moving the sandwiches somewhere else but that is only a rumour too. - secretagentangel 5623.5 #23 9-9-15 6:13PMLike(1)Reply
I would want to know what other scrumptious food they plan to replace these items with! But, maybe it's just a rumor. I don't know. Im still bummed about Aladdin. 😢😢😢 - MeridaFan 4243.8 #36 9-9-15 9:58PMLikeReply

Was the second parade a lot less busy? Just wondering for my trip next month.
It's possibly because McQueen is a race car and CARS is about race cars in general. That portion of the parade is based only on CARS. That would be my guess, no special meaning that I know of. - Donaldfan_532 248.1 #1408 5-25-15 8:34AMLikeReply

Welcome👋🏼. You know what, that exact YouTube channel belongs to someone who frequently spams posts with links to their YouTube page and links to videos they claim as their own (aka plagerism), they have also broken the rules by having multiple MW accounts.

I did this tour a couple years ago, we got to go in walts apartment. Have they replaced that part with the dream suite? Or do they rotate back and forth? - BiggieButler 84.5 #3921 5-20-15 9:45PMLikeReply
My wife and I are doing the same this summer and are going to do the walk in walt's footsteps tour. Our kids wouldn't appreciate it and are not old enough to run around the park unsupervised. Have fun.
Brewskis and Screamin, haha. But seriously, enjoy the day and just do what you want, at your own pace. - Spoonful_O_Sugar 620.5 #339 5-14-15 11:26PMLikeReply
Agree with SoS! This trip is about you two! Get up early...sleep in late...have a romantic dinner at Blue Bayou or eat corn dogs and make-out on the dark rides (maybe not right after eating corn dogs). Have a great trip! - msdizmaui 743.5 #266 5-15-15 12:49AMLikeReply
My husband and I go once a year without our two princesses and it is SO much fun! The wine bar in CA Adventure has a great selection as well as a killer cheese plate! Cove Bar for cocktails is a must! Just enjoy being kid-free and take the opportunity to relax (yes, it's possible) and enjoy the parks! 😃 - enchantedtikimom 0.3 #0 5-15-15 12:36PMLikeReply
Thank you. I am excited to go. I have to admit I feel a little guilty going without the kids, but I am so looking forward to being in the parks just on our own. It was a surprise for me, we have been together 3 years on the 18th and it is his birthday on the 26th so he decided we should run off to Disneyland, since I am the one that talks about it all the time I want him to love it as much as I do so he will take me more often.. LOL.. He and my sister paid for my son to go for his Birthday in November, feeling super lucky to go again!! I think the cheese plate sounds wonderful and I have every intention of getting the lobster nachos!! - Itsallabouteeyore 44.8 #5098 5-15-15 11:48PMLikeReply
Plaza Inn. Good food and lots of characters and when you're done you are right in the park.
I've done the breakfast with Mickey, Stitch, Pluto, Minnie & Daisy at the paradise pier hotel. They're really fun, and the Bananas foster French toast is delicious! - ministrychick77 296.3 #969 5-15-15 7:46AMLike(1)Reply
I've heard good things about the Plaza Inn breakfast and Storytellers. - JenGwen323 2041.4 #81 5-14-15 10:59PMLikeReply
Plaza Inn is nice because it's in Disneyland, but Storyteller's Café in the Grand Californian Hotel might interest you more because you don't have to get up and walk through a buffet line. You can order off the menu. Sit in a comfortable booth and enjoy a nice relaxing breakfast and wait for the characters to come to your table. 👍🏻👍🏻 - MeridaFan 4243.8 #36 5-15-15 1:09PMLikeReply
Thank you all so much for your recommendations!! It sounds like Plaza Inn is the winner, although I may have to check out the others at another time! - MarathonMinnie 139.3 #2945 5-15-15 2:28PMLikeReply
I live just a few miles from there. Haven't been by in a while. Thanks for the pics.

they really should have bbq in DCA. Somewhere that's NOT all you can eat, but just good BBQ dishes. This place would be perfect--don't get why they don't change the menu. - Spoonful_O_Sugar 620.5 #339 4-30-15 8:06PMLike(1)Reply
Have you ever been to the Taste Pilots Grill before? I seriously am just curious. This refurb is just a re-theme of Taste Pilots Grill for the Grizzly Peak Airfield land re-theme. It has much of the same menu as before. - Donaldfan_532 248.1 #1408 4-30-15 12:17PMLikeReply
Tip: ask for this (or any potato) with the butter (or the butter substitute that they use) on the side...........they plop a TON of it on the potatoes, enough that they soak through the lining and drip everywhere......... - georgieporgie 183.9 #2229 12-30-14 5:09PMLike(2)Reply
