We're going to miss your hi jinx! Have fun in the outside world!
Breaks are good--too much of anything isn't healthy, and when you start feeling a little burnt out or uninspired or whatever, it's time to take a step back. With too much Disneyland, you can kinda become desensitized to all the excitement and hope and stuff because you're bombarded with it from every angle. I didn't get to DL for five years while I was in college and then when I graduated, I wanted to try living in Hawaii (great decision). That first trip back when I was in my twenties was so special because I had changed so much, but I realized my love for DL was still strong. Now, my husband and I have had passes off and on for 8 years now and whenever we go back after an extended break, our love for the parks and hope for the future is rekindled. For us, those breaks are a great thing--we find our inspiration again, but we have to step back every once in awhile to be able to really appreciate it, understand it, and feel it acutely. 💖 - Spoonful_O_Sugar 536.7 #326 10-27-14 7:27PMLike(7)Reply
I am very thankful and truly grateful for all of the kind words here in this post and this wonderful community that I joined in 2009.I do plan on going for the 60th birthday on July 17th but as before that I'm not too sure if and when I will renew again. If by month 3-4 I really want to go and its driving me crazy I will probably just go and get a pass but I am going to making a very conscious effort on my part to detach myself for a while from the parks and most things Disney related. I have had a pass now for the last 6 and visited the parks probably a 1000 times and visited WDW 10 times in that time frame. I have met a lot of great people and created a lot of wonderful memories during those times but its just time to give it up for a while like I had done after I worked there several years ago. I have so many interests and hobbies in life that don't just center around the parks and I think this is a great chance for myself to go back out there and go explore the museums I haven't been to in years, take those trips to other countries instead of WDW, go and try the laundry list of restaurants I have not yet tried because I spend a lot of time at Napa Rose, get involved with charities and other organizations that I am passionate about, get back involved in the music scene and find creative outlets that can help myself become more fulfilled in life. Don't want anybody to think this is some kind of swan song and I'm going away for good its just simply whats been on my mind lately. For those who have known me long enough, I'm a deep thinker and like to share my feelings and whats going on in my life. I feel that it helps me to share with others whats going on put down in writing my thoughts. Its something that I never use to do until this year and really found it helped me out quite a bit to put things in writing and encourage others to do so..... - Dave 11414.2 #2 10-28-14 3:16PMLike(6)Reply
😳So is Duffy in on this? Since he's gone now you're going too?! I can say I relate to what you've said. I sometimes feel like I'm missing out on other things because I'm always at the parks on my weekends off. Of course I love the parks just like everyone here on MW. But when you feel it's time for a break do it, why not! Let the withdrawals kick in and when you return hopefully the magic will be there for you. Adventure is out there👍 - LuvsMimisHouse 495.2 #370 10-28-14 10:18PMLikeReply
It's good to change things up in life and see what happens. Hope you enjoy your new adventures. I don't know you personally, but you will totes be missed! - happiestplace 104.8 #3309 10-30-14 4:14PMLikeReply
thank you everybody I will definitely use those suggestions that you gave me I will definitely use the gummy worms I am also in the process of using the glow in the dark paint on it so it can glow under blacklight - Firefighter_Donald 46.6 #4469 10-28-14 8:51AMLikeReply
I have stayed there several times and found that I like it better than the Quality Inns that are closer to the parks. It is clean, the rooms are spacious and the breakfast had something for everyone. No parking fee, free wifi More...
Yes, we stayed there once. 2, maybe 3 years ago, I think. It's right by CSU Fullerton, and was easy to access the freeway. It took a bit longer to get to DL than we would have preferred (10-15 mins). Hotel was clean and they had a pretty good breakfast for the price of the room. What we always remember was that there was a super-friendly and enthusiastic lady who set up the breakfast: she was a hoot! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 536.7 #326 10-17-14 10:27PMLikeReply

No parking fee, free wifi and helpful staff. It is in an industrial area but I have never felt unsafe there. If you don't mind staying a couple of miles away it is a good place to stay! - verolly 754.1 #209 10-24-14 12:06PMLikeReply
I managed to get all four. Now to get them framed and hung.
We only were able to get two. Daisy is sold out, and the brat wouldn't listen to me. I told him, we should eat at Zocalo the night we arrive. Then French Market the night of the party. No he wanted to do the opposite. I didn't know Zocalo closed the night of the Halloween party. So we didn't get Minnie. - Lelundrial 469.0 #392 10-14-14 7:47PMLikeReply
Noted! Looks like a great place to enjoy lunch on our next visit. Have only been once (not sure why - food was so good) but feeling the need to visit again! - MyMouseMickey32 59.2 #4095 10-4-14 10:47PMLikeReply
I love their onion rings and loaded fries. Yum. I wish I was there now to have them for dinner - TrueFromOzLovesDisney 449.0 #420 10-4-14 10:54PMLikeReply
You kids are probably saying to yourself, "now I'm gonna go out, and I'm gonna get the world by the tail and wrap it around and put it in my pocket!" Well I'm here to tell you that you're probably gonna find out, as you go out there, that you're not gonna amount to jack squat! You're gonna end up eating a steady diet of government cheese and living in a van down by the river! - Alicewhoareyou 1130.4 #126 9-13-14 7:06PMLike(2)Reply

Pikarich I am so sorry for your loss. I see your face and I know your sorrow. I know you don't care to hear this now but in the future the pain will be bearable. Please talk to your family, friends or anyone you are comfortable with as you go through your grieving. - Boundin 516.2 #351 8-26-14 11:21PMLike(1)Reply
I wonder if it is from the tutus worn in Fantasia by the Hippos?
It's probably for all of us big bummed gals who always wanted to wear a tutu but couldn't because it made us look too bottom heavy. Now we have the option to wear it on our heads and even things out😂😂😂 - LittleAprilShowers 558.4 #310 8-26-14 2:29PMLike(1)Reply
Okay you look adorable, but yeah I don't get them either - Linzee 874.8 #174 8-26-14 2:29PMLikeReply
Whaaat? Do people really wear that? Reminds me of when my sis and I were little and would run around with tutus on our heads because we didn't want to go to ballet class 😂 - Spoonful_O_Sugar 536.7 #326 8-26-14 2:30PMLikeReply

I agree! This community has had such a positive influence of the lives of so many. Prayers have been sent, friendships made, and many smiles all around the globe. Glad to hear you are out of the hospital. Rest up now, your Disney trip will be here before you know it! - DarthTinkerbell 128.9 #2892 8-26-14 9:30AMLike(1)Reply
Not fair! I love freezes and I am trying to watch my sugar consumption now. I will have to walk on by and save it for a later trip. Looks good - enjoy!
The other flavors are cherry and blue raspberry. They're also available at Pooh Corner in Critter Country, Trolley Treats on BVS and Marcelines in DTD. Also, there are 2 other souvenir cups - BaseballMickey_CM 6108.3 #13 8-19-14 10:35AMLike(4)Reply
*does the math* ok, so it was open when I was there. Thanks and maybe I can hit it in October – with all the other dozens of foods I need to try😂😂 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 4105.2 #23 8-19-14 10:13AMLike(1)Reply
I will keep you and your family in my daily prayers and thoughts. Hope you have a good trip with your granddaughter and fill that time with precious memories.
Dear Father God, we thank You for our friend GIP who is going through some very scary issues right now. And we believe in miracles!! You gave him the miracle of life when he was born, when his kids were born and when his grandbaby was born, and we are asking You for the miracle of life again to keep him healthy, remove the cancer in whatever way You will as he wants to be with his family forever. I ask if there is a doctor or medical procedure out there he has not heard of, let that knowledge come to him or just heal him outright and blast those cancer cells right out. We know when many of us come together and agree in prayer You will answer us and give us miracles too if it is Your will, so please Father God, heal our friend, give him the miracle he needs. And help us be there for him and his family in anything they many need and guide them and give them Your peace to follow Your will. We love you and thank You for this and GIP, in Jesus's name, Amen. Anything you need at all GIP, whether there in phoenix or here, we will help in whatever you need. and I will pray my knees off until you are healed. lots of love and God bless! - secretagentangel 1252.3 #103 8-18-14 4:18PMLike(26)Reply

Hi and welcome! I always have the same advice: get there early, skip breakfast until later. You can ride major attractions and get fast passes while everybody else is eating and window shopping. Then you can eat and use your fast passes and enjoy your day without standing in line the entire time. Have fun! - ShariRenee 4201.8 #21 8-18-14 2:43PMLike(2)Reply
Welcome! And my first advice would actually be to soak the magic in. Let it consume you and just have fun. Sometimes we plan the trip so much that we forget to just enjoy the magic - EnchantedTiki 7.3 #11470 8-18-14 8:56PMLike(2)Reply

Get to the gate an hour before stated opening time! This is good advise no matter where you stay. But if you stay at a Disney hotel you will get early admission to one or the other park daily anyway. Use those early hours! - DeneciePie 324.3 #683 8-18-14 9:05PMLikeReply
Welcome! Get pts for commenting on quality posts, updating wait times while in the park, posting quality content in the correct Lounge (that one took me a while! 😜) and playing MW associated games (Trivilator and Goat Effect). These will also earn you credits which you can use for in app purchases (stickers, pins, special games/levels, etc). Pts don't go away, but credits are like money in Disneyland...easy to spend and then it's gone! 😂😂😂 - TiggersAndTinks 113.7 #3164 8-15-14 1:30PMLike(3)Reply
