First off, greetings everyone. I am new to the forum but hope to be able to contribute in the future. While I grew up in Anaheim and spent a lot of time at Disneyland, I haven't been in 20 years. But a recent Disney World trip has recently rekindled our Disney love and we stumbled on this forum while planning a trip. I am all "ears" for those that would like to help us and in kind I promise a trip report with pics if there is interest.
As of now, we have reserved 3 nights at the Grand Californian, with 4 day hopper pass. We have been fortunate to reserve the vip tour for 2 days. The trip is for myself, DW and 3 year-old DS.
Wed afternoon: Half day at Disneyland
Thursday: all day DCA with VIP tour
Friday: all day Disneyland with VIP tour, Friday night: Mickeys Halloween Party
Saturday: GC pools, limited parks if needed
Now, does that seem reasonable? We have tentatively scheduled the vip guide for 6 hours each day. Is that enough time for each park? Should we increase to 8 hours? Only concern is 8 hours is pushing it for our kiddo before nap time. Those of you with young kids, did you go back to hotel to nap and go back to park at night? My son is tall enough for all rides except Indiana Jones and California Screamin. Any off the radar must do's?
