    8th Grade Disneyland Trip Recommendations

    So, I am going to Disneyland (Yay!) for an 8th grade trip on the weekday of June 3rd. I had a few questions.
    1. What are the crowds like? Scale 1-5, 5 being New Year's Eve =-)
    2. What are good counter service resturaunts to go to?
    3. (Dumb Question)Should we go on IASW

    Don't worry if you can't answer my questions. If so, just give your feedback on #2

    1. Packed

    2. You arrive in the parking lot in front of the parking structure by the trams (trust me, there will be TONS of other buses there), and take the tram the resort like regular, from there your on your own, and you usually have to be back at the buses by 6 or 7 pm.

    3. Don't recommend eating at Disneyland. haha.

    4. Yeah

    Well, I'm not sure what 8th grade trip day is. Haha.

    Any way, if you have some more money to spend, The Plaza Inn (I think thats what its called. We always call itthe Happy Birthday place. ) is where I normally eat, adn I either get the chicken of the pasta.
    We are currently imagineeing a new attraction for you!

    Please enjoy all the other attractions in fabulicious Vasooki-land!

    1. 4-5

    2.At the Mickey and Friends Prking Structure, you have to get on the tram to the one and only stop. Then you go throught the security tents and then out to the Esplande. Disneyland will be on your left and DCA on your left.

    3. I like the little Clam Chowder place in New Orleans Square. It is right between the stairs to the Dream Suite and the Port Royal shop.

    4. You put your entry ticket into the Fastpass machine and it prints out a Fastpass ticket for you. You then show it to the CM when you are supposed to and they will direct you from there.

    5. If you want to go to Downtown Disney and then back to the park, all you need to do is get your hand-stamped at the exit gate. Then you want to re-enter, you show the CM your ticket and handstamp and you are in!!!

    Hope that helps!!!

    1. Packed. Expect about 6 rides.

    2. You will leave your bus in the Pinochio parking lot. The past few years, Disney has required schools to walk to the main entrance.

    3. Pizza Port, Riverbelle Terrace, Hungry Bear.

    4. Park tickets which you will use to enter the park will be used to get FPs

    5. I had a teacher threaten that, but not sure if it were true. They may call in to your teachers who they know are in the park. Also, your school may have chaperones station at the front gates and DTD Monorail station so you take a chance.

    1:
    Golden Horseshoe! Unless you eat a ton, the Chicken Nuggets are large, 8 pieces, with fries: perfect to split with someone, so you're each eating at half price! And the fries are amazing.

    Pizza Port! The pizza's pretty good, but notable is the pasta, which is also served in large enough portions to split with a friend, for more half price eating.

    Pretty much anything except for the burgers in the park will be fine. The cheapest options in DL itself for a full meal will probably be places like Golden Horseshoe / Stage Door Cafe; Pizza Port; Village Hause, Tomorrowland Terrace, and Hungry Bear (but beware, burgers at all 3 places); and the chowder and gumbo station next to Pirates. I have heard bad things (cold, stale food in the buffets) about Rancho del Zocalo, so I guess avoid it.

    Good for meaty snacks is Bengal BBQ: It's amazing but buying enough skewers to make a meal gets a little pricey.
    Riverbelle Terrace: if you've got the cash, I recommend the BBQ sandwich. It's fairly large, so it's a very filling meal, and comes with choice of sides and drink. If you don't want a big sandwich but still want the taste and variety, ask for the kid's size!

    Oh, and I forgot: there's 3 or 4 little window service restaurants back in Toontown: hot dogs, ice cream, a fruit stand, and I think one other thing, but I forget what. It's never crowded, and the variety would probably please a larger group of kids who might have trouble deciding where to eat.

    As far as DCA goes... I don't really know. I almost never eat there, and when I do it's always Corn Dog castle, which I find delish and cheap as anywhere else!

    2:
    Definitely bust out the secret agent moves. I'm not sure what for, though. Crowd evasion? Getting good spots for Fantasmic or fireworks? Working the Fastpass like you own it? Taking down flash photo perpetrators on Pirates and Haunted Mansion?

    Yay go my little monkeys, bring me info
    But thank you so much, for all your helpful comments. On Doombuggies this would never happen, you've got people getting upset over anything and it's a big mess over there.
    I just wanted to try this one out =-)

    Re: 8th Grade Disneyland Trip Recommendations

    As far as leaving the park to go to Downtown Disney, Disney doesn't care if you go, but the adults organizing your trip might.

    I will add my recommendatino to eating at the Golden Horseshoe--get an ice cream sundae and share it with someone. They're delicious!

    Do make sure you figure out how fastpasses work. Every time you get a fastpass, it will tell you on the ticket what time you can get another one.

    And if you do have to walk to disneyland from the parking lot ... it's not that bad of a walk.
