Born & raised in Orange County. Disneyland has always been a huge part of my life as I lived down the street from the park(s) most of my life. Now hubby & I get to create magical memories with our 2 wonderful children.

We are attending Mickey's Halloween Party for the first time this Friday.  We are planning to dress up our son.  Do most adults dress up for this event too?  Will we look out of place in our regular clothes?
Most adults do dress up and I think it is more enjoyable if you do. :) - justcallmeKP  196.0 #1881 10-14-13 2:56PM Like(1)  Reply
A mix of both. Lots of adults do dress up, but there are a lot that don't. Either way it's fun. - DLKenCA  1195.3 #97 10-14-13 2:56PM Like  Reply

Mix of both... You wont feel out of place in reg clothes.  Everyone gets a bag and can get in line for the treats.  So much fun getting candy! - parkfan2  40.3 #4531 10-14-13 3:40PM Like  Reply

Someone reported 25 minutes for RSR? Is that a typo?
It is now the off season so it could be correct. The single rider line shows that its less than 15 minutes.  - KermitFan13  642.5 #228 9-5-13 6:19PM Like  Reply

My hubby loves going to the parks, but refuses to ever wear anything Disney or affiliate. I think we have a breakthrough! Next goal is to get him to wear Mickey ears!!!

Good luck! - BombFrog  566.8 #275 9-2-13 8:37PM Like  Reply

Where is the best place to get a Donald and/or Chip & Dale shirt for my little guy?
Try Main Street Clothiers on Main Street. There is a room just for kids. Not sure if they have Donald or Chip and Dale shirts, but that would be the best place to start. If not, try World of Disney. - BaseballMickey_CM  5348.0 #12 8-30-13 10:52AM Like  Reply

My 4 year old braved Splash Mountain for the first time. You can see his eye in between the woman's fingers & I'm holding on to him for dear life. He didn't even need it. He did so well.

Wow four years old? I still get scared at the drop... I am far from 4 years old. - sultan  33.3 #4851 8-23-13 7:57AM Like(1)  Reply

I love the soft serve at Paradise Pier. Is there a place in the parks that has the same serve dipped in chocolate?
Clarabelle's on Buena Vista St may have something similar to that. - KermitFan13  642.5 #228 8-12-13 10:42AM Like  Reply
Cozy Cone Ice Cream Cone does, but it doesn't taste the same. We tried getting it last time and they said the chocolate was too soft, even in a swirl, to be out in a cone or to be dipped in chocolate. Was super bummed! He ice cream did not taste as good as the pier either. - 1Princess3Princes  302.3 #756 8-12-13 4:16PM Like  Reply

Hubby & I are celebrating our anniversary on August 20th. We usually go to our favorite steak house, but would like to do something different this year. Suggestions on a nice romantic dinner in the parks or resort?
Napa rose or Carthay. Catal is nice too. If you want to do casual yet have decent food, UVA. - madsdad  1748.0 #62 8-8-13 10:24AM Like(1)  Reply

Need advice. Trying to decide between Minnie & Friends breakfast at 10:30 a.m. or Goofy's Kitchen dinner at 5pm. Anyone done both and prefer one over the other?
Goofy's Kitchen for the food, Plaza Inn for the cuddly characters (this does not include Cptn Hook). - Linzee  771.6 #182 8-6-13 9:45AM Like(2)  Reply

We've done both several times now over many years. I'm not a fan of Goofys. The characters interactions are MUCH better and more frequent at Minnie's and I think the plaza in the park is just the most perfect and beautiful setting. I don't think we'll ever pay for Goofys again. Only reason I'd be tempted is the PB&J pizza πŸ˜„ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3589.5 #22 8-6-13 10:38AM Like(1)  Reply

I have a 5yr old and we did Minnie and friends 2 weeks ago and we loved it! Even though I've had my AP for many years now this was the first time we ate there and was so worth it. I was told the characters can change. We saw, Minnie, chip n Dale, hook, fairy godmother, perla, rafiki , Winnie the pooh, tigger, eyeore, Pluto. I know there was a couple more I can remember. But the plus is Minnies is inside Dland so it convenient.hope this helps an have fun :) - minniel0verβ„’  210.6 #1683 8-6-13 3:03PM Like  Reply
