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.

I know this is a bit late, but we had great time at Mickey's Halloween Party. We went the exact time as last year & both times were sold out. However, this year it seemed a lot more crowded. Still plan on making this a yearly tradition.

I noticed that too. Last year you could see the crowds thin out after closing, but not this time. Last year we got to Main Street 10 minutes prior to the start of the parade & there was plenty of room. This year we got there 30 minutes prior & no room. They had to have up the amount of tickets sold. - ocmama  38.1 #4950 11-5-14 12:11PM

Hello MWers!  We've been AP holders for years, but have only been on RSR once and that happened last summer when we got to the park before it opened. We stood in line and were able to walk right on the ride. We're hoping&nb  More...
The process has changed for DCA magic mornings. If you have a magic morning, the FP line will not be open, thus, guests will be directed straight onto the attraction. In my opinion, I would get a FP - BaseballMickey_CM   6851.3 #9 6-19-14 10:22AM 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   6851.3 #9 8-30-13 10:52AM Like  Reply

Cozy Cone Ice Cream Cone does, but it doesn't taste the same.

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   4386.6 #22 8-6-13 10:38AM Like(1)  Reply
