For those of you putting off signing up for the Disneyland Half, it is already 85% capacity after only a few hours. Most other races already sold out. Don't wait until it's too late. I was lucky enough to sign up with early registration  More...

On the opposite side of rope drop this time. Gotta love the "magical hour" while staying at the Disneyland Resorts. I do have to say I felt like a bit of a jerk for taking this. But I've been on that side WAY more lol

Yep. Been on the other side of that rope many times before. I don't pay much attention to the folks that have early entry. I am just happy when my time starts for enjoyment on the attractions. Have a wonderful time! Everyone else is going to.  - grumpypapa   12597.6 #10 1-26-14 10:17AM Like  Reply

Just signed up via Annual Pass Holder early sign up for the 2014 Disneyland Half Marathon! Scared and excited! Anybody out there who's done this particular race have any advice or insight? Much appreciated!
Ooh!  You will have so much fun!  Plan for hot, humid conditions.  Train consistently.  Invest in good shoes and clothing (go to a specialty running store and get fit for running shoes--spending the extra money is worth it).  Know that you will have good days and bad days during your training: use the bad/meh days to empower and strengthen you.  Also know that you will need to figure out your hydration and fuel, and that can only be done through trial and error during training.  On the day of the race, follow runner etiquette and stay to the right if you are walking/slow jogging, and try to avoid zig zagging (this puts unnecessary stress on your joints and is dangerous for the people trying to run behind you).  One thing I wish I had done is run a 10k before the DL half so that I could submit proof of time to be moved to an earlier corral. Good luck!! - Spoonful_O_Sugar   720.1 #334 1-22-14 7:35PM Like(4)  Reply

Ran the DL Half last year and the Tink 10k and Half this year! Just signed up for the Dumbo Dare because of how much I love it! I'm essentially just echoing what everyone else has posted...train, eat well & know your body. If something is aching or not feeling right, take care of it! Also, don't beat yourself up if you don't stick to your training routine 100%. For this last race, my training was all over the place & I was still able to reach my goals. Do some weights or swim instead of running day in and day out...I've found the breaks from running really helped my joints! Good luck!!  - GrimGrinningAmanda   666.9 #363 1-27-14 10:35AM Like(2)  Reply
Good advice. you dont want to run to much as it can really mess you up if you do too much on your legs you can really injure yourself pretty easily. - Dave   13924.0 #9 1-27-14 12:40PM
Wonderful advice! Thanks! - maryv00  164.7 #2668 1-27-14 2:44PM
Just train hard! I have not done the DL half but I did the Tink half in 2013 and the Tink 10k this year. Figure out. Pace that works for you and find something that keeps you occupied for those moments when you hit your wall. Also do some strength training in the gym and eat good. It will all help you to reach your goal. And rember on race day it's the prize! So enjoy yourself cause you have worked so hard to get there! You will do great!  - CourtyAstroBlisters   852.2 #266 1-27-14 7:49AM Like  Reply
Iv'e done it past 3 years.  This will be my fourth.  Just keep training.  Last year was very hot and humid.  If its your first, don't go into this with a time goal.  Make your goal to finish the race.  Warning:  You will get hooked on RunDIsney and it will cost you $$$$$$.   - streetsweeper   529.7 #469 1-27-14 9:58AM Like  Reply

Has anyone in mousewait land been to Steakhouse 55 for breakfast? Most of the reviews I've seen are for dinner. Is breakfast good? Recommendations? Avg plate price?
It is very good, a little pricey. Items are about $11-$17. Steak and eggs & huevos rancheros are very good. Lots of people like the breakfast burrito but I have not had it. Very nice setting. Menu can be seen at DisneyGo. - ShariRenee   15099.3 #7 1-13-14 12:55PM Like  Reply

We actually brought a bag and backpack and left them at the hotel on Friday. I bought one of the green Halloween bags because it was only 2.99 and then the CM asked if I wanted some big plastic bags.

Arriving at the Grand Californian Friday morning for my birthday. I heard you can only take advantage of the early Magic Hour With a valid hotel key. Very doubtful my room will be available at 8am, have any one of you guys out there heard  More...
They will give you your key so you may enter the park. I checked in early and that is what they did for me. Enjoy!  - ythdudette   1593.5 #137 9-18-13 7:35AM Like  Reply
We were able to do the same :)  The bonus was that there were hardly any people checking in at that time, so you're also able to avoid the afternoon rush!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  720.1 #334 9-18-13 7:38AM
Last month we arrived at 7:30am and our room was ready early AND they allowed us to check-in and we got the magic morning hour that day.  If your room isn't ready they will just check your luggage for you. - PrincessAraceli   229.0 #1781 9-18-13 7:43AM Like  Reply
πŸ‘†πŸ‘† what they all said.  Get your key, and go have fun!  Give them your cell number, and they will text you when room is ready. They hold your luggage for you, so you don't have to rush back until you are ready. Enjoy your visit!   - MacaronMerida   4754.2 #39 9-18-13 7:53AM Like  Reply
Even if your room isn't ready, you can still check in early.  I'm sure the hotel would give you something to prove you are a hotel guest if they couldn't give you a key. - MrsFletch   435.8 #591 9-18-13 8:06AM Like  Reply

Planning my birthday dinner and of course want it to be special. Blue Bayou or Carthay Circle? Which one should I choose and why? Write in candidates welcomed lol
The food is great at both, probably better at Carthay. But every time I have to choose one or the other, Blue Bayou wins every time for ambiance. I  can't get enough of it. It's special feeling like part of the ride. Either way, have a great birthday! - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor   480.2 #523 9-9-13 6:51PM Like(1)  Reply
Completely agree! Carthay is definitely the fancier choice, but Blue Bayou feels like Disneyland. Have a great birthday! - dancelaurensing  313.8 #962 9-9-13 6:59PM
Napa Rose! Or, Carthay. The food at Blue Bayou reminds me of wedding reception food. You'll be able to experience a finer dining experience at Carthay. Blue Bayou, while having great ambiance waterside, is all about turning and burning to maximize capacity. Regardless of your choice though, I hope you have a fabulous birthday! - Atora   2702.2 #65 9-9-13 7:49PM Like(1)  Reply

Just upgraded my reservation at The Grand Californian. Super excited and nervous as it IS a lot of money and don't know what to expect. It's my first time staying there. The upgrade was just a better view. Is it worth it?
If you can afford it, then yes. If you have to skip your next mortgage payment to pay your bill, then probably not. Enjoy!! It is a nice hotel.  - MacaronMerida   4754.2 #39 9-6-13 8:42AM Like(3)  Reply

Is it worth buying the WOC meal deals from Ariel's Grotto, Carthay Circle or the Trattoria or is a fast pass good enough?
I think the FP if you get there early an are in Blue are almost as good. I only get dinner if I want to eat at those places. - DLKenCA   3769.6 #50 9-5-13 6:28PM Like  Reply
Get there early either way. We have done both & have found early to be the key. If you do early the reserved seating is best, but the FP seating can be good enough. - RosettatheRunner   16.4 #9116 9-6-13 1:09AM Like  Reply

So I have reservations -standard view room- at the Grand Californian coming up a in a couple weeks. I REALLY want a park or pool view room but as some of you may know, the costs are pretty steep. Should I just bite the bullet and upgrade   More...
It depends, sometimes I've only been able to book a standard view because that's all they had at the time but I always ask when checking in if there are any available. Last weekend there weren't so I was out of luck. I once had them upgrade me for free because I was only staying 1 night but if they have them avail they will tell you how much extra it is. If you want to be back by the entrance to DCA you can do a garden/courtyard view room for about $20 more per night. Last weekend our standard view room was actually a partial pool view & was right by the entrance. Hope this helps. Happy early bday - UTDISNEYFAMILY   3416.5 #54 9-4-13 8:13AM Like(1)  Reply

Basically they just kind of show your dedication to the park and lounge. You get points for posting quality content that people want to see ad comment on. Their comments help boost your points. There are a few things you can unlock.
