My sister in law always takes her stroller and has never had an issue! She usually ties some brightly colored ribbon to the handle so that she can easily find hers in a crowd when we are done with a ride. - BellesLibrary 419.7 #559 3-1-13 4:07PMLike(1)Reply
Honestly the only strollers I've ever had stolen were the ones I rented from the park. It usually happened at night . But I learned after the first time to keep my receipt in my wallet and not in the stroller and it was always replaced free of charge. We buy a Mickey balloon and tie it to the stroller so it's easier to identify as ours . When my kids were very little I always took my own stroller cuz I'm a germ a phob , and no one ever messed with it . - eviljules 1480.3 #121 3-2-13 10:54AMLikeReply
Was there to celebrate my daughters 1st birthday, someone stole her mcclaren trimuph stroller with her happy first birthday Disney pin on the front seat. Nothing at all in the stroller of value- water bottle and nursing cape. We went back four times to Mater ride to see if someone put it back throughout the night but there was just the same cheap umbrella stroller left in the place of ours. I guess some felt they should trade up. The Disney staff kept telling me how nice I was being that usually people yell at them. I said it wasn't their fault but because it was my daughters first birthday- I just wanted to cry. It was also parked right next to the entrance where it was supposed to be. So sad. I think I was more upset about the fact someone stole it than it was actually gone. I mean, it had her birthday pin with her name on the front, my sons name written on the top of the canopy and a nursing cape layed into the fold of the canopy. The staff kept telling me , maybe someone mistook it. Hahaa! They knew what they were doing. At least they were kind enough to leave behind their stroller for us. Kids were happy but ruined the night for my husband and me. We have been pass holders for three years- we were always aware this could happen but always had positive experiences. Cast members were very helpful and sweet though. - Ihavedisneykids 3.0 #46284 3-23-13 8:40AMLikeReply
A couple of weeks ago, Jollyroger5 and I asked a CM about possible future plans for Autopia. He said that a contract was just signed with Honda to install new motors, since the current ones are about 14 years old. Perhaps this is why it's closed? - JRDrummer_CM 875.4 #222 2-27-13 11:34AMLike(5)Reply

Thats unfortunate. There are countless starbucks but only one Market House.
Agree. Too too many Starbucks all over. People come to Disneyland for a totally unique experience. Please no
Starbucks !!! What's next a 7-11 in Tomorrow land - polo33 80.3 #4049 2-16-13 2:42PMLike(16)Reply
Eh... I've pretty much come to terms with this for 3 reasons: 1)I have faith that it will be well done, 2) Disneyland is constantly growing and changing and this is just one more thing, and 3) It's not like the presence of major corporate partners isn't evident all over the parks. In fact, the park probably wouldn't exist without these partnerships. - JustCantWait 1148.5 #167 2-17-13 3:41PMLike(5)Reply

When we rode this attraction the other day, the CM said the closer we were to the door, the faster the car would spin. I thought there was no way to control the car spin and she was just messing with us. Anyone confirm/deny/share on this? - MoonWillow 381.3 #623 2-10-13 9:02PMLike(1)Reply

Welcome to MouseWait. Please read the FAQ. Holiday season, especially this close to Christmas, is extremely busy in the parks and that particular attraction is very popular. You do have the option of the Single Rider line which may be a faster wait time. But I would expect long waits for the popular attractions. - MickeyFan 1205.7 #157 12-22-12 4:01PMLike(7)Reply
Did you guys know there's a Starbucks in DCA???? - LBChica 2544.3 #62 12-22-12 6:00PMLikeReply
There are a limited number of fps for every ride at Disneyland. Rsr happens to be very popular and runs out right away. If the number was unlimited there would be no point to a fp. - aidensmama 340.3 #740 12-22-12 6:18PMLikeReply

That is very cute and so sweet of your boyfriend. Hope you two have many magical memories at the park!
Everybody starts off wrong, but some people seem to be a touch more.... Colorful.... In their approach. I havent figured out why. I know I did read theFAQ and still apparently broke them somehow.... I REALLY love this app but sometimes I see favoritism toward higher ranked or longer standing MWers. I don't know why. Best advice, hang back for a while and watch the flow. Even though the caption says "Disney related" people in the lounge prefer Disneyland pics. Love the bracelet and next time post it in the hub snd save yourself a "talking to"...... - templeclan 54.8 #4759 10-20-12 10:24PMLike(4)Reply
I doubt you have read the rules-FAQS. You need to, especially the part that deals with picture posting. This is an amazing app, but everybody must follow the rules for it to stay that way. Thank you and have a good night. - Linzee 1397.2 #136 10-20-12 6:54PMLike(3)Reply
We did most of those today. So much fun! It's like a whole new Disney world for him. We have been living in fantasyland and bugs land. No more rider swap or sitting out for us. I have been waitIng to ride RSR so we could go together. More...

Let's be kind to each other and communicate with each other positively. None of us are perfect and words can often be hurtful.
I remember when I first posted to the lounge ... Horrible memories come flooding back when I think about it .... People were so odd and .....well .... I'll just explain. People gave me tips and secrets about the park, people sent me Disney stuff in the mail, they laughed and joked with me ... And they did all of this without asking for anything in return .... Like I said this place is just packed full of these odd type people. - EdLovesAlvena 259.8 #1324 8-13-12 3:57PMLike(61)Reply

I've been mostly going to the 10:00 performance on Saturdays. There is this one song that they sing that I'm trying to figure out. I know they put up their hands and all I remember them saying is "tonight". - MissAshley 113.6 #3444 7-8-12 6:18PMLikeReply
I think they need to add some more songs and genres to their set list. Personally I'd love to hear Offspring's "Nitro" or "All I Want", Green Day's "Holiday" (edited of course), No Doubt's "Excuse Me Mister", anything from Nirvana. - CM_Shadowgamer 2577.9 #60 7-8-12 9:03PMLikeReply
I have been to all of them and I would have to say Minnie's. Go early during magic morning and you'll have a great time and still make it into the park before it opens. The character interactions are the better here then the others as well. - krash2501 128.1 #3150 7-8-12 11:47AMLike(4)Reply

I've been to all except Minnie's. My personal favorite is Goofy's for breakfast. The food is delicious, and guaranteed you'll get some great characters walking by your table. (Last time I was there, Cindy & Perla, Mulan, Dale, Chip, Goofy, Daisy, etc.) I would recommend Storyteller's if you really wanted to meet a specific character, because they don't change like Goofy's. Also, the banana french toast at Storyteller's is AMAZING. - thelittlestmouse 95.4 #75 7-8-12 9:58PMLikeReply

I just think autopia needs an update. I get sick from the fumes. I can't even smoke anymore. Blech, but I do sometimes.
I think we should have more characters running around, especially villains. I also think it would be cool if for Disneyland's big 60 that they brought back some old shows from the golden horseshoe and parades, and what not. Kinda bring back a lil bit from all the past decades. And maybe come up with some new show/musical about Walt Disney and the beginning . I have one in my mind that I wanted yto wire down and make sketches for. Ya know? I wish I could just travel back in time and experience each decade of Disney. I want to feel it. I want to soak it up until there is nothing left. New is good but unless you can remember where you came from, where your roots are, what do have? - dreadpiratebubbles 69.1 #4314 7-5-12 1:12AMLikeReply
Please do something with the peoplemover tracks!! I still remember riding that with my folks when I was young and I loved the Tron tunnel - why not bring back a Tron ride? Bring back the Peoplemover in some fashion, and turn Innovations into the Tron game grid - in 3D or something!! So it looks like you are being transported to the grid with other programs and then you go through light cycles or something, but more modern than it looked in the 80's. That would be awesome!! - Dawnsharks 168.7 #2497 7-5-12 11:25AMLikeReply
Yes there are restaurants open and you actually can get in before the park closes for the event. It is so much fun! Have a great time!
Yes, most of the restaurants are open. If you like a sit down table service restaurant, I remember Cafe Orleans had a special menu for the Halloween parties - BaseballMickey 8007.3 #11 7-1-12 1:11PMLike(3)Reply
I haven't been myself but I have heard that sometimes you get wrist bands and are let into the park prior to park closing for the event. Not sure about the resturants and food inside the park durring the event but there are resturants in DTD that you can stop in at before the Holloween Party. -
