I say make the drive. We made the drive, and more than likely will be skipping Space. I amnot a huge fan of the overlay We have had a wonderful time.:)
Some of my best trips were when I was pregnant and unable to go on the 'big' rides. For me it's more about the experience than the thrill. Catch some shows, enjoy amazing food, people watch, and appreciate all of the little details that make Disneyland such a magical experience. Use it as an opportunity to try something new you haven't done before, I bet you can have just as much fun as usual, even without those two attractions. 😊 - Geekery 401.5 #471 11-3-13 4:06PMLike(2)Reply
Normally within 24 hrs. I have had them confirm my reservation within 2 hours on the same day we wanted the reservation. :)

Responded same day! I got Carthay circle reservations 60 days out for dapper day and there was no problem using the email. I highly recommend it! No having to wait on hold on the phone! - ImAlwaysCrazy 671.7 #233 3-25-13 7:24PMLikeReply
I emailed them today at 4:30 pm and I had a confirmation by 4:45! Super easy but you don't get anyone telling you to have a magical day like they would if you call. :) - drmwshhrt 19.6 #6262 3-25-13 10:21PMLikeReply
That is an awesome picture. :)
Long ago my husband and I had the crazy dream of a wedding at DL with our reception in the Mansion. This is how they would have put the table. The options they had were just awe-inspiring. Maybe someday for More...
How awesome. I know Kurt Russell. After my regular military service was over I severed in an Air National Guard Unit in Van Nuys. Kurt was a Mess Sgt. along with many other celebrities & athletes. - splashphotoCM 885.6 #161 3-23-13 10:15PMLike(4)Reply
It was a lottery. Over 100 members put their names in and only 15 members were choosen. They were allowed to bring one guest with them. So only 30 people. I know half of the people who attended. - 33Wonderland 65.1 #3893 3-23-13 9:39PMLike(2)Reply
This is amazing! I love MW and being able to see pics and hear about these awesome events that are nothing I'll experience; it's fun knowing people who do and hearing all about it! Thanks for sharing and can't wait for the Kurt Russell report! - TinkerSchelle 1162.2 #110 3-23-13 11:18PMLikeReply

We are about 7.5 to 8 hrs away and go twice a year in average. One trip 6 days the other 3 and it is well paid for (especially including the discounts).
Ya know once you get an AP you will just come up with more excuses to go, that's the great thing about it. I'm from Oregon and have an AP, so you better believe I'm gonna go as many times as possible. - madsdad 1800.8 #65 2-6-13 5:31PMLike(4)Reply
I live in Las Vegas & know a lot of families with AP's here & they are able to make it worth it! That's actually my goal! Someday I need to be an AP!! - SarahD005 4.4 #17499 2-6-13 1:53PMLike(2)Reply
Add me please. I share my birthday with our first president, George Washington on the 22nd.

Well, this sounds fun! Please add me for Feb 18th. And while you're at it....why don't most of you take that day off...or at least hopefully get paid extra!😜🇺🇸 - TinkerSchelle 1162.2 #110 1-31-13 9:35PMLike(1)Reply

Please add me. I have a few things on my bucket list. Like most folks Club 33 and a stay in the Dream Suite. I also want to eat at Carthay Circle, see Walt's apartment, have a private dinner in the Haunted Mansion ( we were going to do this for our wedding if we could afford it we might do it someday for a vowel renewal).. And the most unlikely thing: see the basketball hoop in the Matterhorn.
There might be more. ;) - Isis 281.5 #905 1-15-13 9:03PMLike(1)Reply
He looks like the guy that was there in early Dec! My 2 year old ran up to him and said "hi, ho ho", sweet guy, he laughed and talked to her for a few minutes :) - GarnerPhotography 324.7 #667 1-5-13 10:56PMLikeReply

If there is somewhere specific you want to eat, the dining folks can get you in contact with the chef at that location. They will work with you. I always give them my reservation info when I go over dietary needs. :)
Download Strawberryguy's book through Amazon.com. Lots of options in there. - susieQzee 539.7 #313 12-27-12 4:53PMLike(2)Reply
Try searching for Vegan foods here. I tried the cranberry salad about two weeks ago at Paradise Garden Grill and it was delicious. You can also go to city hall and ask for a list of restaurants that have Vegetarian foods at the parks. Have fun :) - KladiaDisneyNinja 258.2 #1129 12-27-12 5:08PMLike(1)Reply

Thanks to everyone for your input! I tried searching the subject with not much luck :( I tried different searches and still nothing very informative. Thanks for taking your time. I've got a few options now :) - PirateJedsMommy 146.9 #2571 1-5-13 9:50AMLikeReply
We don't put up a tree every year (sometimes I just put a 2 foot tall Santa Mickey out instead), 90% of the ornaments are Disney. The othe 10% are special inherited ornaments from my family or ones gifted to me. :) the tree topper is even More...
Wow, great collection! I have so many too (notice I did not say too many)! - ShariRenee 3853.6 #22 12-11-12 10:10PMLike(1)Reply
Please add me for JAGofficial. That is beautiful Disney Christmas Magic. :)
Added you but can't message you because I am not at that level yet. Please consider me for that ticket. One of my closest friends has NEVER been to Disneyland and would love to take him. Unfortunately his family is always low on funds and can't make these outings. I can guarantee you... You will change his life! I am willing to buy a day ticket to make this trip possible because he deserves it. - JAGOfficial 50.5 #4256 12-10-12 11:11PMLike(22)Reply
Wow! I am in total disbelief by the support. I can only imagine what Wednesday would be like if this can actuality happen. - JAGOfficial 50.5 #4256 12-11-12 12:09AMLike(7)Reply
Please add me. My favorite tradition was getting up and cooking all day with my mother. Now that she lives in Arkansas and is fighting (and will defeat!!) cancer, I am even more aware of how much I loved all the cooking. We'd laugh as we More...

the parade is filming on saturday. many of the performances will film sunday. If you would like to be up front and close to either i would recommend showing up at park opening to stake out a spot - Pixarprincess 539.3 #314 11-2-12 10:53AMLikeReply
It is a blast, even if you don't wear a costume. The "Screams" fireworks are amazing!
yes! I had a lot of fun working them last year! Seeing all of the creative costumes guests had and the park feels so festive. - BaseballMickey_CM 5790.9 #13 9-25-12 1:15PMLikeReply
I'm sure it will be. Plus, you can't back out now since you already bought the tickets! they are nonrefundable. Go, and have a good time! No second thoughts allowed!! - MeridaFanHasNoAP 3195.0 #28 9-25-12 1:55PMLikeReply

My hubby proposed August 5th, 2011 after dinner at a water side table at the Blue Bayou. We stood up to have the waiter take a pic of us by the water and when I looked down he had the ring box open and proposed 😍 We were married 3 weeks ago 💗 - melissa_ficent 318.5 #700 7-30-12 2:40PMLike(5)Reply
Memorial day 1999. Spent all day at the park with our friends. That evening we walked off alone because he said he wanted to buy me one of those light up roses. We started to walk back to where our friends were and we stopped in front of the castle. Before I knew what was happening he had a ring out and asked me to marry him. What made the moment even more special was as soon as I said yes I looked up and saw all of our friends there clapping and cheering. Then I looked the other direction and I saw my parents who had driven up that evening just to be there for that special moment. That was one of the best moments of my life. ❤ - dznechick 19.0 #6336 7-30-12 9:20PMLike(2)Reply
My husband almost proposed at Disneyland but decided to do it at the Hollywood Bowl instead, since that was our first date. I'm glad he chose the Bowl :). - kss4tink 217.7 #1609 7-30-12 9:09PMLikeReply

The Royal Street Veranda in New Orleans Square has an amazing veggie gumbo that is actually vegan!!! The Hungry Bear Restaurant has a fried green tomato sandwich (not vegan- it has dairy). DCA has tofu rice bowls at the Chinese restaurant by the pier and the Greek place by Goofy's Sky School has tofu and veggie kabobs. I hope this helps. :) - Vegan7LuvsStitch 988.4 #145 6-1-12 9:26AMLike(2)Reply
Big Thunder Ranch BBQ has an amazing veggie option. (in fact, I think I need to make a reservation for into weeks)

Malificient. :) she turns into a dragon after all (and I love her colors).
Scar, he's probably one of the greatest Disney villains. He kills his brother and attempts to kill his nephew all for the throne, takes the queen, and turns the pride lands into a wasteland all to bring himself more power. Yep. - CM_LionGeek 352.7 #564 5-8-12 3:09PMLike(3)Reply
