LNC.... This is WAY overdue. Where are you late night crew?? Let's do this! We can start with a classic. Random thoughts??
LNC is grandfathered in the lounge. It's been around forever. Many friendships began on those posts of old, when we couldn't even reply to each other's comments. 😂 If you're lurking, jump on in! If you're an old timer MWer, PLEASE jump on in! - DisneyFanZoe 1146.0 #132 2-28-15 11:12PMLike(7)Reply

Got my official Fantasmic seat cushion today when I did the dinner package at the Blue Bayou.
So here are my thoughts on the experience. I used to book the dessert package and compared to the dining package I rather do the dessert because there are nice chairs for you to sit on with a great view. This new dining package makes you sit on the floor. My legs were cramping up and were dead numb by the time the show ended. It was very uncomfortable for me. The view was good, but I prefer the chairs when I did the dessert package. By the way, the dessert package is no longer offered. Also, be very careful about the instructions given to you where to go to check in. Our server told us to go one place, but the crowd control castmembers sent us to another. Very frustrating because that whole area around the river is so crowded and bottlenecked. Finally, the cast members at the check in area will not let anyone in the seating area until the exact check in time. Plus they tell you that you can't wait by the barrier gate because it will block the thin walking area guests have to get by. Finally have tons of patience because there is only one check in entrance with one cast member checking fast pass tickets. Mind you he or she has guests coming in from the left, the right and in front of him or her to squeeze in through the one access point. I had a chance to experience this and probably won't do it again or wait for a very long time to do it again. Sorry for the long post but wanted to answer some of the questions I saw after my original post. Love to hear your feedback. - anthony91765 86.8 #3628 2-2-15 12:00AMLike(2)Reply
Did you enjoy the experience? We used to purchase the dessert package when we visited. This will be something for us to consider. - BibbidiBobbidiBoo 57.2 #4227 2-1-15 4:34AMLikeReply
Do you think they will put up tarps in front of the castle to make it look like the castle? They seem to have done this for the other buildings as they have had maintenance done to them - UTDISNEYFAMILY 1537.8 #89 1-29-15 6:32PMLike(1)Reply

I realized I never formally introduced myself. Yesterday was the first time I was able to get a post off in the parks!
I'm a lifetime Disney addict who recently got an AP. I'm from the Bay Area, and I'm excited to contribute and make new friends. - anirina 173.7 #2234 1-6-13 9:51AMLike(2)Reply

I saw the post last weekend and was yet still too shy to say anything. Today is the day...HELLO!!! - lizzie2thelou 48.9 #4493 1-6-13 6:35PMLikeReply
Hello. I'm not new but am definitely bashful! I love going to DL either with family or friends or solo. I really appreciate MW. It's such a great way to get a little dose of Disney magic every day. One of these days I will be brave enough to meet some of you person. Thanks for all the pictures and laughs! - BRabbit 534.2 #346 1-6-13 7:20PMLikeReply

#DisneyOnaBudget ✅ So here goes: we are coming on our next trip on a huge budget. I've managed to squeeze in the 4th of July weekend with the family and sending hubby home on Sunday for work and staying til Thursday with a good friend. More...
I've got a few... 1) Our Target usually has the Smart Water bottles they sell in the parks for $1. I buy at least 3 for each day we will be there and freeze them. That way they stay cold all day. I carry one and put the others in the backpack. 2) The picnic area lockers! These lockers are bigger than the ones inside the parks and the esplanade and you don't have to take the stuff through bag check. You could fit a small ice chest in one of the large lockers and keep cool items. We once mixed up some tuna and kept that, bread (well, we forgot the bread which resulted in some creativity lol), snacks like Cheezits, etc. Then you can keep all your meals in there and the patio is usually pretty empty. PLUS you're still on property!!! 3) I got this one from MW. If you have a Target Red Card, purchase Disney gift cards with it when you can. You'll get 5% off (plus whatever you get on your AP) 4) I have several apps on my phone that I use to build up rewards. I then redeem those rewards for Starbucks gift cards that can be used in all the park locations. We've gotten a whole meal for free with this! The sandwiches they have at the DCA location are yummy! Here are my regular apps: Viggle (check in on tv), Shopkick (scan items on your phone when shopping), Mom uses Mango Health (check in when you take your daily medications, including vitamins!). I'm sure there's plenty more, but they're SUPER easy!!! - SPandEvLover 3393.9 #34 6-5-14 3:28PMLike(8)Reply
Definitely utilize Costco. People have this impression that I have all this $$ to come to Disneyland everyday and that couldn't be further from the truth. I SAVE money by being here. I bring my own drinks & snacks like Triscuits, trail mix, apples and other tough fruits that can withstand the backpack; also Cliff & other snack bars. It saves a ton of money & energy. - apesandmonkeys 6521.6 #12 6-5-14 1:37PMLike(5)Reply
Great tips thanks for posting this! I think everything I was going to say was covered. Oh maybe one thing along with using Costco. If you're going to eat at restaurants then get the discounted gift cards to the restaurant of your choice there. They have $100 gift cards for $74.95. - AriellesMom 91.8 #3548 6-30-14 10:23AMLikeReply
Frozen water bottles, jerkey, pop tarts and Pringles are always in our backpack. If we really are trying to save money, we walk to McDonald's for lunch. - FoolishMortal138 350.4 #612 6-30-14 11:20AMLikeReply
