I have pretty much given up on DL, and this is the first time I did not renew my AP. Too many people, and on every day of the week. When I was a youth, it was only the weekends that were crazy busy, and at least people could avoid huge lines by going on a tuesday afternoon or evening. Not any more.

I still go to downtown disney however, and have one of those fancy martinis at the Uva bar, followed by a cigar and a walk to the mist caves over at the hotel. They light those up, and it looks pretty cool. There is also an outdoor bar over there, which is good for a capper.

Speaking of Disneyland. If anyone here is an LAFD/LACFD Fire Dept employee or if their Fire Dept company fought in the recent fires here in Cali, they get a free 3 day park hopper into Disneyland till Feb by just showing their I.D. They can also purchase the 3 day park hoppers for family and friends at $56 a piece.

http://disneyland.disney.go.com/disneyland/en_US/reserve/specialOffers/detail?name=WildfireHeroesSaluteSpecialOfferPage&CMP=OTC-VanURLHero&bhcp=1

Knotts is offering free admission into their park by just showing your I.D. and you can have a guest free as well. You can purchase up to 6 guest tickets as well for only $12.95 a piece. I just went there this saturday. How nice was that not having to spend $100 to get two people into Knotts!! Dinnylan is next week! =))

Hiphipahula BTW...better check the annual passholders calendar. All of the passholders will be blocked out the 22-24th unless you've got a CA Select AP and then you'll be blocked the 25th from going as well.

Mahalo for the info Giganticrobottikiduder that was all good info. except for you left out the part that says PREMIUM Annual Passholders Have NO BLOCKOUT DATES.

Shit, all I wanted to do was go to Disneyland for a frickin' day & all this negativity, what's it to you. Then don't go people ignore the post gesh...LOLOLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL bunch of whiners....

Some people complain no matter what. Often it seems to be the same people. This is a post for those who might want to join us not a opinion poll or a complaint dept. gesh....
I have held a since maybe '97,98? 90% of the time I go mid week as I did last Tues. & of course I walked onto every ride & saw fireworks no problem as usual. I do avoid the very day of holidays & Fri & Sat. no matter, again I have a pass if it 's busy & go to dinner & come back next week. I am glad some people don't want to go & have so many complaints cause that's 2 less people in the park we need to deal with.
complaint dept. next door>>>>>>>>>

I have been going (over the last 4 years) pretty much 2-3 times per week. Always after work. I would just go, ride the jungle boat cruise, haunted mansion, POTC, then fastasy land and do Snow white and Pinnochio. Then finish off with the train. The train at night is very cool. Pretty much I would restrict myself to those rides that traditionally have the shortest lines. If the crowd was light, and I hit it at the right time, I would do the Tiki room too. But after 4 years of fanatical Disney worshipping, I have just had it with the crowds. In the last year I focused more on california adventure. There is a lot of good stuff there, and the fact that you can buy beer and wine and walk around with it (At Knotts, you have to stay in one place) makes it a winner. I always enjoy the ornamental tropical foliage at Flix's fun fair. Very well done.

As far as Pirate Island, I usually don't like tampering with classic attractions, but they have done a great job. If you can squeeze through the caves, there are some cool suprises that they added. Last time though, I had just eaten a veggie burger at the village Haus in fantasy land, and then I went to pirate island. It was in those cramped caves where the veggie burger showed it's true quality. I was farting horribly. Some kids in front of me started laughing at me. It was f-ing great!

There still is excellent music all over both parks, though. The Mariachi Divas in CA are awesome.

But, my DL days are over for a while. It's not a burn out of the park itself, but only of the crowds and the huge strollers and the parades which clog up the passageways and leave you no "out".

I will just have to keep my self entertained with my collection of well, pretty much every Disney DVD that they have ever made. That and one of my many, many books about the making of Disneyland and of Walt Disney himself. I actually think I might have TOO much Disney paraphenalia. And I spend too much time viewing DL related websites like "Yesterland" or "Atomobiles" or "Mouse Planet". My "My pictures" is clogged up with photos of vintage DL that I use as wallpaper. Oh well, I am a Disney Fanatic. Guess that did not come through in my last post.

Wow! This post sure has drawn a lot of "Hoopala", Hiphula! I have a family member that works there, just comes down, signs us in, and we park hop anytime! I avoid the more crowded days too, but when you get in for free, you don't complain as much. At any rate, you have a great time, sounds like you and Kate will have a female bonding session while shopping till you're dropping!

LOL... Monday & Friday are worse usually on a normal week. Figure, people take a 3 day weekend, Fri, Sat & Sun OR Sat, Sun, MONDAY. Your best bet is go on a WENSDAY Thurs. is better than Tues. HAVE A MAGICAL TIME!

Disneyland!

Thanksgiving week, a 4 day weekend BUT people went Wens., Fri, Sat. Tiki-Kate & I went Sunday as planned. Everyone went on Wens, Fri & Sat. as we thought. Sunday the park was open from 8am till midnight. We arrived a bit after 8am & there was plenty of people in the park oddly not riding rides there was lots of entertainment going on so many Holiday things to see. We walked onto every ride, I think the longest we waited was for "Peter Pan's Flight".. maybe 25 min.? We started with Mr. Toads wild ride no idea why lol a absolute 1st. I think we were just busy talking about howdy do's & going to see Sleeping Beauty's Castle all dressed up for the Holidays & that is the point were we said wanna go on this? Well! ... it broke down lol.. we had to walk out of it with all house lights on..
I did rides I had not done in a while, always cool... did all rollercoasters, Small World I usually skip it cause the song wears on my F'in nerves but it is all done up for the Holidays inside as well as out complete with Holiday music inside too. Then there was Splash Mountain! I never get wet, maybe a small drop or two, well, shit we were soaked. We stood under heaters at the plaza Inn & watched the fireworks. Great day & Good food at the Blue Bayou. Didn't find any tiki goods to buy so we had to save all our money for ?

Three Wacky Yet Talented Kings


It was a fabulous day. I don't remember the last time I spent 14 hours at the park.

We had a hell of a time getting away from Mr. Toad.




And yes, I have this bizarre weakness for Small World.



I think the best part of the day was Kelly drying her socks under the heat lamps at the Plaza Inn. (I really wish I'd gotten a picture of that.)

We didn't take many pictures and I hope Kate's camera is ok, my phone is not working correctly due to soakings on Splash Mountain. SO here's my photo contribution. enjoy!


WE Rode some rides!

We Danced!

We saw some movie stars & V.I.P.'s when we finished the show at The Enchanted Tiki Room! Wow at those United Airline Bags huh! I told Kate "You bump into the kid on the right & I will snatch the bag!" She wouldn't go along with it

I love that second picture of tommorrowland. Was that the "friendship train" or the "sunshine balloon" jamming on the stage?
