    Re: How Much Time Do You Spend Talking On A Cell At DL?

    The ONLY time I have used my phone at Disneyland was for calling the GCH to see if our room was ready. My husband will occasionally use the cell phone to check voicemail for work reasons.

    It amazes me how much folks use/depend on their cell phones. I guess I'm old school (or just old...), but in the years before cell phones - if I was out-and-about and I had something really important to tell/ask, I would make a call from a pay-phone. I would never have just gone and used a payphone to see what my mates were up to, I would call my mates from my home.

    I find it strange to be at someplace like Disneyland and have the need to call and talk to 'X' about my cat or laundry... Weird. With very few exceptions, my husband and I both actually keep our phones off, and we also do not give out our cell phone numbers ~ even to family. Yes it maybe weird, but our families know to leave voicemail at our home phone.

    The only time I called someone from Disneyland other than hotel staff, was on Grad Nite (1984) from the group phone rooms they used to have in Tomorrowland - anyone remember those? I believe they were by America Sings. Anyway, my best friend and I had to call our mother's to let them know we were OK.

    Thanks for starting such an Interesting thread!

    2 - 3 minutes maximum, when at Disneyland I very rarely talk to people on my cell phone.

    Re: How Much Time Do You Spend Talking On A Cell At DL?

    I rarely use my cell phone at any time, and certainly not often while in the parks. I'll use it to arrange meeting places and to make dining reservations, but that's it.

    My cell phone addict friends get upset because my cell phone is off most of the time.

    I've never even sent a text message. Amazing, huh?

    Re: How Much Time Do You Spend Talking On A Cell At DL?

    The only time I ever use it is to find someone that got separated from our group or to meet up with someone who was already there. There have been a few occasions where I do call people back or call someone to say "hello". Estimated amount of time on a trip: 3 minutes.

    Re: How Much Time Do You Spend Talking On A Cell At DL?

    It's too loud there, I don't hear my phone or feel it vibrate when I'm in the parks. It drives everyone crazy that they can't reach me. And when I do make a call, I can't hear anyway, so it makes no sense to even try.

    But I text like a fiend!

    At Disneyland I don't talk on the cell phone unless it's something important or if one of my party gets lost.

    Usually just to 'meet' with people we might be looking for........but I always have my phone with me......you never know when you'll be in an emergency and need it.......

    But what gets me is the people that walk around the park with the Blue Tooth thing in their ear. Hello? I have to ask myself 'why'? Is it just to show everyone that they have a Blue Tooth or?????

    Re: How Much Time Do You Spend Talking On A Cell At DL?

    Only when I get there, to let my family know I arrived safe, to text my friends when something really amazing happens, and to call home at the end of the day, to let them know I'm coming back.

    I really don't use it much. I'm in Disneyland, relaxing. Unless it's an emergency, leave me alone.

    Re: How Much Time Do You Spend Talking On A Cell At DL?

    When I go to Disneyland, I go to enjoy the full experience of Disneyland so I only use the cell phone to send a text to a friend while sitting down for a meal somewhere or make a quick call if a family member stayed back at the hotel and is trying to find me and other family members in the park. However I can usually get away without even bringing it into the park with me and I wait to use it when the day is done. I would never use my phone on an attraction because I personally hate seeing the glow of a cell screen so I don't want to do the same to anyone else and ruin their experience.

    I do like having one with me most times though in case of emergencies. Things happen and I like being prepared in case a friend or family member needs me.
