    The day I'll be at Disneyland next week also happens to be the day PotC will be closed down. WTF? That really sucks.

    Pirates was open yesterday and had better be on Sat or Sun. I scored a 3-day park hopper after checking out the Epic Mickey video game.

    Oh no, It's a Small World will be closed tomorrow.

    I'm officially on for the December 11th trip. Time off finally approved, though I have to rush back Monday morning.

    We'll probably just do Saturday. So, as the date approaches we need to solidify plans. I still have Ivy's cell unless she's changed it since our last D-land rendezvous. Marc and Mike you need to PM me your numbers eventually. I'm getting excited. I haven't been to the happiest place in the world during the holidays in a REALLY loooooooonnngg time.

    do you have passes? we just renewed ours and it was painful. think it was close to $800 for 3 of us since we got the pass above the cheapest one so we can go on most sundays, as well. at least they have the payment plan now so payments can be broken up, but it's gonna suck even more once our son turns 3 and needs one, too. maybe it will be time to switch to knott's berry farm for a couple years.

    No passes. I am determined to keep Disneyland to a once, maybe twice a year thing. I think as a child it should be something special, even when we live in it's shadow.

    This is a joke, right?

    Todays' lesson : we don't have enough money for yearly passes to the most famous and most expensive theme park in the history of the world so we have to settle for the second most ... AND IT's FURTHER DOWN THE STREET!!!!! AH!!!!!

    Yes, and I could barely afford it, I was counting on splitting gas and hotel, so I am likely out too. It's probably better I set aside that money for Coachella.

    And if that wasn't bad enough news...

    Congratulations on the adoptions! i haven't seen this show live yet and haven't done any research on it. i went with my niece on Tuesday and the show was going to start in 10 minutes. When i explained what was coming up and asked if she wanted to wait, she opted for the King Arthur Carrousel (kid loves that thing). Based on the video, not too sure i like the way this is edited. A little too a.d.d. for me. Might feel different seeing it in it's proper scale.

    We did more than I throught we ever could and didn't feel rushed. Regular lines during peak hours on popular rides were 30-40 mins. I think these tips are well-known, but they certainly work.

    1. Slower time of year to go
    2. Sunday vs. Saturday
    3. Get there at opening
    4. Do popular rides early
    5. Use Fastpass
    6. Be opportunistic
    7. Do stuff like Tom Sawyer in the middle of the day or to kill time while waiting for fastpass.

    There's not much for an adult to do in Toon Town, but the theming of it is fucking INCREDIBLE. I really like tro just wander around and look at everything. The inside of both Mickey and Minnie's houses are really amazing as well. I am also a fan of the Roger Rabbit ride, though it's been closed for a while now.

    I dig ToonTown a lot, it's a good place to take a break. But what's this about Roger Rabbit being closed?

    It's not permanently shut down as far as i know, but it's been closed for some kind of renovation or repairs or something for many months it seems...unless it's reopened now. Mike would know better.

    Roger Rabit reopened in Dec after 5 months of repairs to make is safer.

    Besides that, and yes, the themeing, I don't understand how Toon Town seems like the most crowded place in the park.

    I'm thinking of taking my daughter to Disneyland on Friday, April 22, the tail end of our 10-day trip to California.

    Can anyone offer any advice on how to find decent deals for a single-day visit, plus a night at a local hotel? I'm hoping I can manage this without going broke, of course, but I mostly want to surprise the kiddo with a fun day.

    Unfortunately most deals I know of require residency in Southern CA...but you might be able to find some sort of package deal through a travel agent...or if you book a hotel, they'll often have offers for discounted Disneyland tickets. it's definitely not a cheap thing to do unfortunately.

    maybe check craigslist for people that have unused multiple day/park hopper tickets?

    like here: http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/s...ets&catAbb=sss

    not sure if they are legit, but may be worth a shot once you are in the area.

    Thanks for the advice, friends - It might wind up being a decision I make that same week, so the Craigslist option might make the most sense. I'm going to try to do it regardless of the cost, but if I can help going broke, that would obviously be my preference.

    She was last there when she was four, and she's just turned nine last week, so I'm looking forward to giving her a chance to see it again through fresh eyes.
