I have recently returned from a very long hiatus to the Disneyland experience. I enjoy DCA, black pearls, the grand californian, Pirates and World of Color.

Hey Mousewaiters!! Anyone have an idea of cost for lunch at Club33 these days? Excluding tax, tip and alcohol?
Our lunch was the cost of an adult park hopper ticket, give or take. - tiggertwin   329.5 #649 9-9-12 12:20PM Like(1)  Reply

Took the plunge and went to DL on Labor Day with my son and wife. A wee bit crowded. The goats from big thunder ranch send their hellos.
143.8 #2653 DL Qual #6829 9-2-12 9:41PM
Hey Mousewaiters! Just wondering about how bad the crowds are on Labor Day? Is it just super crazy or not so much. I was just there Thursday and the entire park was wide open.
I'm sure it will be packed. No block outs on APs + Holiday + 1/2 Marathon weekend= potentially lots of happy people. 😄 - joyfulmomma   248.5 #1239 9-2-12 9:46PM Like(1)  Reply
