Happy Husband and father to two. We took our kids to Disney last year and can't wait to go back in 2014, hopefully during the holidays.

I'm looking at buying an AP pass for myself and using park hoppers for rest of the family for our upcomming December trip. Does anyone else on here do that to get the discounts on the hotels and park food and merch?
If you are staying at a Resort Hotel you enjoy Extra Magic Hour. If you are staying at a Good Neighbor hotel. .. the AP is not entitled to Magic Morning.  I hope that makes sense.  - MickeyLumboCM   761.9 #210 2-16-14 1:08PM Like(1)  Reply

Both hotels are great options. When you make the reservation you should add your AP and then you get the rate discount. You can add the tickets for the others on the reservation.  You pick them up at check in. - MickeyLumboCM  761.9 #210 2-17-14 12:14AM

That is a wonderful idea!  We are Vacation Club Members and always stay at one of the resort hotels, so we get early entry.  We also have access to discounted Military Tickets.  We have never thought of only buying one passport for the discounts.  I did the math and for us it will be a huge savings since we go at least twice a year! - luvthemouse   171.6 #2245 2-17-14 7:58AM Like  Reply

We stayed at PP on our minis' first trip back in 2009, it's a great bang for the buck in terms of staying on property. Β I would recommend HoJo for the first 2 can DM me for more advise and no you are not booking too early! - BombFrogFormerCM   780.6 #202 2-14-14 5:16PM Like  Reply
If you call Costco travel, they are really good at helping out, even if you don't buy right away. I know we have booked hotels for December a week or two before our travel dates. Not the best deals, but you can do it.  - mommalostone   59.7 #4116 2-14-14 5:17PM Like  Reply
Is there any perks booking through Disney as opposed to Costco? I see Costco gets you the free character meal and the $20 gift card. That seems to be the only difference.  - Danierob  55.7 #4223 2-14-14 10:04PM

We used to buy a different Mickey each visit. Now it seems to be scrapbook items or things my daughter loves. The photopass CD is also a must every time.  - warchanted   138.7 #2766 11-12-13 10:09PM Like(1)  Reply

This year it is going through some changes! Gingerbread doors are opening up, 13"s are popping up, and there may be more to come so I wouldn't say exactly the same. This year is special because of the 13th anniversary of HMH. - MrsSchnooks   2833.0 #37 11-7-13 11:01PM Like(1)  Reply

I got the game when it was released and I gotta say I am loving it!!! The only down side is looking for people to trade me some power discs. On Monday I went to DL and the store across Emporium I believe it's called 20th century music, sells everything for the game. My favorite character to play is Mr.Incredible. Each power discs has different things for example some of them giving you health others gives you more money. - KladiaDisneyNinja   266.8 #1083 8-23-13 10:01PM Like(1)  Reply
I put up an ad on Craigslist and met up with someone at Starbucks and traded for all the ones we needed. We traded the power rare discs straight up and three commons to one power disc. Toys r us was sold out since they are on sale buy one pack get another for a dollar. Target will price match. Sale ends today, good luck! - Danierob  55.7 #4223 8-24-13 4:00PM
I had to buy the exclusive pack from toys r us on eBay but the rest I have been buying them at Target. I think I've gone to Target this whole week lol I found a website already and I found someone to trade with. Now all I need is Finding Nemo Skydome and Abu and my collection is done!

I've got a question for all you regulars. We are planning our second trip to Disneyland and looking at the week of Nov 11th. We were there in Oct last year and loved the Halloween theme. Our thought this year was going during the Holiday   More...
Yes! Best time to go in nov is after thanksgiving. However, living far away, we usually go at times when the park is "busy" anyway so we don't really know any different. My family went the day of thanksgiving and a few days after and it really wasn't as horrible as I thought it was going to be. The lines were typically about a little over an hour wait. Being on a tighter budget, the hotel we usually stay in is the Marriott Fairfield Inn. It is reasonably priced and is only .02 miles away. It took maybe 5 min to walk to the park. Only down fall is they don't have continental breakfast. Is you can afford a DL hotel, do it!!! I've heard nothing but good things about them! - BellesLibrary   402.2 #492 5-8-13 1:12PM Like(1)  Reply
The first week of December may also be a good time. All of the decorations will be up, as well as all shows, parades and fireworks up and running, as well as extended operating hours, as well as lighter crowds compared to other parts of the holiday season (although still busy). As far as hotels, it totally depends on your wants/needs. There are several good neighbor (and non good neighbor) that are a shorter walk to the main gates than that any of the Disney properties and at a significant savings too. We have stayed at several in the area and it's hard to match the convenience, especially when you are spending all of your time at the parks. - MightyWhitey   1026.8 #150 5-8-13 1:16PM Like(1)  Reply
