A Day At Disneyland!

While this group will be doing other events every now and then, "A Day At Disneyland" is scheduled to be a regular monthly event for us (usually second Sundays). Yay!

The day's activities are decided by votes of the majority of whoever shows up. What would YOU like to do?

* Adventureland amusements the Enchanted Tiki Room, or the Jungle Cruise!

* Tomorrowland thrills riding Star Tours, Space Mountain, Captain EO, Innoventions, Autopia, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, or the Finding Nemo Submarine Ride!

* Fantasyland fun, like Peter Pan, Snow White, Mr. Toad, Pinocchio, Alice in Wonderland, Matterhorn Bobsleds, or Small World!

* Toontown trips to ride Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin or Gadget's Go Coaster!

* Critter Country expeditions to Winnie the Pooh and Splash Mountain (get ready to get wet!)!

* New Orleans Square adventures at Pirates of the Caribbean!

* Frontierland forays to Big Thunder Railroad, Tom Sawyer Island, the Mark Twain Riverboat, or the Golden Horseshoe!

* Main Street merriments such as riding the Main Street vehicles or watching the old time Cinema or Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln!

* Character Meet And Greets, where we can take pictures with Mickey & Minnie, beautiful princesses, Tinkerbell and her pixie friends, Disney villains, and many more!

And so much more fun at the Happiest Place on Earth!

(Note: Indiana Jones Adventure, Casey Jr Circus Trains, and Storybook Land Canal Boats will be closed for refurbishment on this date.)

Come join us and let's have a fantastically magical day!

John, I never did find the apple pie... had to settle for an apple crostata from Plaza Inn... topped with Ice cream from Carnation... tasty... but not exactly what my palet was seeking!!... :o)

    Just looked at all 237 pics! Awesome! Were these all taken Sunday? How long did you guys stay?

    October 16, 2012

    • Alan

      Getting more pics and video ready to load... Some of us stayed till the park closed (I left at 12:59 according to the Main Street Station clock). After most of the group left I stayed for Dreams Do Come True, and then Fantasmic, and then went on Pirates and Star Tours twice... Only 6 people in the flight, and I still was not the spy. (127 times and never the spy) ºoº

  • Rob H.

    Jennifer G, you're most welcome and it is always our pleasure! You really beat a lot of challenges to join us today - you must be a true Disney fan! It was great having you join us - look forward to seeing you and everyone again soon!

    October 14, 2012

  • Rob H.

    Heads up! It's 9:30 am and the traffic on Disneyland Drive going into the Mickey & Friends/Downtown Disney area is backed up out onto the freeway. They're encouraging people to use the Toy Story lot on Harbor just south of Katella for parking.

    October 14, 2012

    • Joshua O.

      sorry icouldnt catch up with you guys the traffic was screwed up on the way there because of the CHOC walk

      October 14, 2012

  • Jennifer

    After a few minor glitches (friend cancelled on me, heavy traffic, pass was blocked due to a change in credit card) I met up with the group and ended up having a great time, even in the hot weather. I enjoyed watching Captain EO again. It had been a while since I had seen it. Thanks Rob & Mary for hosting this event!

    • Rob H.

      After meeting at the flagpole at 11 we usually go get Star Tours Fastpasses and then spend some time in Tomorrowland - maybe Buzz Lightyear or Space Mountain/Ghost Galaxy.

    October 14, 2012

    • Rob H.

      Hi Jeff, call me when you get into the park and I'll let you know ehere we are. (714)[masked]

      October 14, 2012

  • Denise

    I will be there at 6am for the CHOC Walk in the Park. Hanging with the Pulse afterwards, but want to see you guys too. Anyone staying for the World of Color Show? I want to try my new Glow with the show ears!

    October 13, 2012

    • Patrick P.

      And a follow-up question: what's the difference between this group and Pulse? They both sounded similar, but I ended up joining this one simply because it made more information available before joining, while Pulse kept its info private.

      October 13, 2012

    • Rob H.

      Hi Patrick! There's a lot of overlap between the groups. Come join us and you're bound to meet people who are members of the Pulse group as well. For example, I'm a member of both groups.

      October 14, 2012

  • Joshua O.

    two things (1st) are disability passes allowed in this group? (2nd) im goin to be on 9:00am 83 bus to get to disneyland

    October 14, 2012

    • Rob H.

      Hi Josh, I'm not sure what you mean by "allowed." Disabled people who join us may have Guest Assistance cards or not, depending on whether they get one from City Hall. It's really up to the individual. It's not something we can decide as a group.

      October 14, 2012

  • Jeff C.

    Does everyone who attends stay together the whole time? Break off into smaller groups? I don't think we'll make it tomorrow but maybe sometime. We have a 1-year old so we tend to do more kiddy things. It sounds fun. If you all get there at 11:00, how late do you stay usually? Thanks.

    October 13, 2012

    • Rob H.

      Hi Jeff! It can fluctuate a lot. There is usually a core group that gets together at 11 and then stays until about 4:00 or so. But we can have people drop out and come back, or have people join us later in the day. Some people get there early, while others may not come until mid-afternoon and then stay the rest of the evening. It's really impossible to predict, but you can pretty much count on the core group being there from 11:00-4:00 or so. That's usually about how long Mary and I can last.

      October 13, 2012

    • Jeff C.

      Thanks for the info. We'll try to come out to one soon if we don't make it tomorrow.

      October 13, 2012

  • Joshua O.

    will we be able to go to the haunted mansion holiday

    October 10, 2012

    • Rob H.

      I'm sure we'll be doing that ride, with consideration to the season!

    October 13, 2012

    • Rob H.

    I'm excited!!

    October 11, 2012

  • Jessy

    Has anyone ever parked at downtown Disney and go to the park? Other pass holders have told me they park there every time, but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks :)

    October 7, 2012

    • Jessy

      Thanks! Yeah I just wasn't sure if they check each car .. but seems like they do from your answers :)

      October 10, 2012

    • Eileen L.

      Jessy, everyone who parks will have to get a parking validation stub as they drive in through the gate. When you exit the parking gate later, the parking attendant checks the amount of time on your stub, and you will owe money if you park more than the 3 free hours. It all depends on how many hours you park there. If you eat at Downtown Disney, you can get another 2 hours free, with restaurant validation. Each additional hour costs $6, charged in 20-minute increments. The maximum parking fee is $30.00. [It's safer to just pay $15 at the Mickey & Friends parking structure or the Harbor Blvd (Toy Story) lot if you know you will be at the park for more than 5 hours.]

      October 11, 2012

  • Rob H.

    Josh, certainly we will want to check out all the special Halloween stuff going on, including Haunted Mansion. It'll be fun!
