    Thanks, Gary!

    Just a question, because I forgot -- to stake out the "prime" seat you want, where do you line up in advance? I was going to "take the bullet" and get in line early, while my wife and her mom enjoy the park -- just can't remember where I need to line up and roughly when.

    Speaking of lining up -- does anyone have any tips for going to see Billy Hill and the Hillbillies? Best places to sit, when you should arrive, that sort of thing? Looking at Monday, Tuesday or maybe Thursday.

    when I did it, we were told to pick up the tickets at City Hall, then later in the day you go to where they have the seating chart (sorry I don't remember the time it opens - call guest services), near the churro cart outside the Haunted Mansion. you pick your seats then you can do what you want until show time. you don't have to sit there all afternoon. confirm the details when you pick up the tickets. yes only one person has to wait to select your seats.

    Checked in at Hotel, up in 5 hours to get the team fed and dressed and in the Disneyland Parking garage by 7:00 a.m. for 8:00 a.m. Rope Drop at Disneyland. Going to be a crazy Sunday, I'm sure.

    I agree. Even if it's only taking a bus tour that drives you around LA or San Diego, I think it enriches people when they get to see things beyond the parks (and their trip to and from the airport).

    Taking someone who is almost 70 to Magic Mountain is a complete waste of money. She already said she didn't like thrill rides. I would suggest Knott's Berry Farm if they were doing something other than Disney, as there is atmosphere there at least, unlike Magic Mountain. It is true that there is plenty to do in Southern California outside of Disney parks, but I can also understand wanting to maximize time at Disney parks when it's a once in a lifetime kind of trip.

    She loved Star Tours, Splash Mountain, and Tower of Terror, to say nothing of the more personal attractions like the Subs, so what might be a waste of money for you hasn't been one for her.

    I was just remembering your earlier post (original one) that she didn't want to go near thrill rides. Glad to hear that changed!

    I'm 65. and Star Tours is one of my favorite attractions.

    Splash Mountain is one of those rides, that is so much more fun with friends along.

    I am not brave enough to ride Tower of Tower.

    Thanks for letting us share your special visit to Disneyland.

    The WIFI in our Good Neighbor Hotel is spotty at best, so a full report on the Tour will have to wait for later. Well worth the money, and my mother in law loved it. Same night, surprised her with VIP Fantasmic seats.

    She also loved the Tower of Terror, Soarin, and Star Tours. Two more days to go. I've been avoiding the Early Entry park, and so far, that strategy is paying off, as we have the run of the place for he first two hours. The Horde starts to show up after 10, but before that, we walk on ride after ride.

    WIFI in some hotels is just poor. certain ones I have noticed that it helps if you switch wireless ports. sometimes the strongest signal is not the best one to use.
