Ooo I was thinking about taking the kids somewhere to get food. Maybe Boudin? I always have to have the clam chowder bread bowl at DCA. It has the Disney magic that makes it more delicious! 😋😋 - sultan 514.9 #478 2-25-17 8:24AMLike(1)Reply
Just heard about it third-party this morning. A coworkers family member is a CM and stated there was a fire but no other details. I figured I would find the details here
Just saw a similar rumor elsewhere, nothing in news yet. Hope no injuries. - Bibba 617.5 #386 1-22-17 8:53PMLikeReply

That looks fun! You have a pretty handsome budding musician there. Tell him to keep it up so you can watch him perform on TV with a Drum & Bugle Corps someday. - Ilovegoofy 416.2 #626 1-18-17 2:15PMLike(1)Reply

If you still have the receipt, go back to the store and see what they say. My daughter lost a bracelet from Pieces of 8 and they gave her a new one with the receipt. At least it's worth a try.
Definitely Contact Lost & Found 714-817-2166. You can call in and report it also if you are not at the park. If found they will even mail to you. They find a lot of stuff. The CMs walk the track every night. So if it fell off on the ride they will probably find it. - DLKenCA 3640.5 #51 12-19-15 9:56PMLike(5)Reply
My son lost his lanyard with lots of new pins on that ride. We reported it at lost and found. It was found at the end of the day and they packaged it up to send it back to us in the UK. Disney are very good at that sort of thing. - beentoall 1653.0 #0 12-19-15 11:28PMLike(2)Reply

My daughter just finished 7 months in the Disneyland College Program so I bought an AP and visited her at least 6 times. We ALWAYS ate at Big Thunder Ranch BBQ every visit and often took friends and family members and they all LOVED it! For about $30 (adult price) you got all you could eat chicken, ribs, sausage, corn on the cob, beans, corn bread, and drinks. We often would add the skillet chocolate chip cookie with ice cream or s'mores bake. We will not only miss the food, but I think we will also miss...Miss Chris and Tex Tumbleweed :( I hope they move this somewhere else). - cherylabq 18.8 #8398 8-25-15 9:24PMLikeReply
They missed out on the orange juice industry when they ripped all the Orange trees out 60+ years ago
I think CircleVision was very under appreciated! It was a great place to go in Tomorrowland and watch a great little movie surrounded in a 360 degree theater. I remember you could see the movie about the US during the morning and through the mid to late afternoon when the movie would switch to a film about China... It was one of my most favorite attractions ever; when I was younger, the screens so gigantic and all encompassing. It was my first ever experience with an IMAX movie and it was also very cool in the summer when the weather could get really hot. The only drawback to me was that people had to stand - because of my inability to stand for long periods due to the nature of my disability, I was always in a stroller or wheelchair, so it was pretty easy to experience. I could even go by myself when I was a teenager so I could be dropped off to watch while everyone else stood in line and went on Space Mountain. I so wish they could bring it back! 😁 - Catski23 34.4 #6097 6-4-15 7:48AMLike(4)Reply

My dad. I will always remember him taking us to DL and seeing him enjoy it as much as my brothers and I did. I always wanted to sit next to him on POTC not only because it was his favorite and I liked seeing him laugh, but also because I was a little scared at the end where the wood is all burned and the chair is about to fall on you. He always held me in that part. Now when I go on it with my boys my wife knows that they have to sit next to me so I can hold them. (They're a little scared of the drops) if I happen to win your RAK please give the credits to my friend sweet_Irish_cream. Thanks - phillip.rocks 1662.7 #125 2-16-15 10:37PMLike(2)Reply

Take it slow and let the child set the pace. Encourage, but don't pressure. They may have all the fun they are looking for at a distance. It's a bonus if they interact closely. Have fun and just enjoy the moment, t More...
I just took my 2 year old to Disney World. We ate at 3 character dining restaurants and met multiple characters but he wouldn't go near any of them like my big girl did. It wasn't until our final day that he hugged Pooh! I would suggest trying as much as he'll let you. If he's terrified then he obviously might not get over that during your trip but he should be less and less fearful with each one he meets. Hold him standing next to the character! Ease into it! Have fun! - MamalovesMinnie 23.7 #7404 2-11-15 8:13AMLikeReply
My granddaughter is 2 1/2 now and is finally wanting to approach the characters. Up until last week she was only willing to look at them from a distance. I suggest just letting your little go at his/her own pace, just whatever they're comfortable with. - DisneyGrandma 891.8 #250 2-11-15 8:21AMLikeReply
My husband was worried our daughter would be afraid on our first trip when she was about 20 months (she was scared to death of the Chick Fil A cow for a while). She loved them though and gave kisses to everyone. I think it was because we watched all the cartoons and movies. So she saw her shows coming to life. I would suggest watching as many disney things as you can. My niece was terrified her first time though but she didn't watch them as much. The characters are really good about keeping their distance if they know someone is afraid. - warchanted 193.2 #2243 2-11-15 9:38AMLikeReply
Dont push your kid up on them when they dont want to be. Its annoying and the characters dont like it either plus it makes them hate them more - Dave 13914.6 #9 2-11-15 10:12AMLikeReply

Fact; 5 min north is The Rinks Anaheim. Fact; it cost half of this per session($7 vs. $15) abs you don't need a helmet. fact; it is where the Ducks practice in a Frank Gehrhy designed building. FUN FACT; they have Ballist Point on Tap for $6. - dizneedude 1889.9 #107 2-11-15 1:32AMLikeReply
We have done the exact thing. They drop you off and pick you up almost in front of Tropicana. Somewhere between the hotel and the Light at the main transit entrance. Hope that makes sense

Thank you everyone. We usually drive but since it's just my daughter and I we are flying. I did the DL express because it was cheaper than super shuttle, yet I should have read reviews first :( hoping it's a smooth trip - krm71408 7.2 #15540 2-9-15 9:14PMLikeReply
They do drop off directly at the DL resort hotels however all the other hotels they drop you off at different locations. I was just wondering of a stop was near the Tropicana , because if not it's going to be a long day with my daughter lol. She can walk all day around DL but as soon as we go to leave all of a sudden she's tired and can't walk. I love my crazy girl - krm71408 7.2 #15540 2-9-15 10:55PMLikeReply
Yes, I look forward to this every year. I just booked my hotel & now for plane tickets. This will be the 3rd reunion I've attended & I look forward to them every year. Will there be crowds, I sure hope there are crowds of people attending the reunion because I wouldn't want it any other way. Myself & others are blocked that weekend but that doesn't matter to me or some others because we come for the company & the enjoyment of being with our extended MW family. Unfortunately this can't be made to fit everyones scheduled & never will but with a positive attitude it will be a great time & possibly the best time you've had in a long time. - UTDISNEYFAMILY 3297.4 #55 2-5-15 2:52PMLike(12)Reply
This is the best date as May is booked up with anniversary, spring breaks, and grad nights. April has spring breaks all month, and Easter and a convention on most weekends. There really isn't a non busy time this year to do parties. And the party is usually close by so you do not have to go to the park to get in so no blockout on reunion itself! It will be great to see all of you there!! - secretagentangel 14025.3 #8 2-5-15 1:48PMLike(4)Reply
