    Dole Whips are the best dessert while watching the fireworks! Sunday mornings are the best time to go to Disneyland, lighter crowds.

    Don't know if this is such a secret anymore, but the ceiling in the HM Stretching Rooms is just a painted scrim.

    Welcome to the board!

    Tips and tricks, hmm.
    The best time to ride Pirates and HM are when Fantasmic's going on!
    Ditto with Small World and the parade - shorter (or no!) lines!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Sometimes DL has special things going on for
    Annual Passholders. Just go to the Disneyland
    website and look for the Annual Passport holder
    link. You will need to register your name and
    passport number.

    I haven't checked it in about a week. At
    that point, the most recent offers were
    a couple special showings/special prices
    for "Cars" and "Pirates: DMC". Also Annual
    passport holders can purchase tickets now
    for the Halloween Trick or Treat nights in
    DCA. Never know what fun things might
    be showing up there!

    Howdy!

    When getting a dole whip, do not wait in that ridiculous line outside in the Adventureland walkway. If you don't feel like going into the Tiki Room but want your treat, go get it from the inside of the waiting place, then say you have a fastpass time or something and go back out.

    If you want to actually get somewhere after the fireworks, use the train.

    That is awesome advice!!! Last time I was there, a huge line was forming on the outside. I went inside and there was NO ONE in line, so I got served right away. It was super cool. I can't figure it out.

    First of all, welcome to the board!!!

    As you will soon notice if you haven't already, the benefits you get from your pass depend on the kind of pass that you have - again, check disneyland.com/ap for details...

    And there's a "meet" every Sunday at noon at the Disneyland "hub" with usually no fewer than a dozen MiceChatters...sometimes many more!!!

    Enjoy!!!

    Yes! Don't feel that since you're an AP holder that you're better than regular ticket holders or that you deserve special treatment above all others--'cause you don't. AP people like that give the rest of us a really bad name. Play nice and be curteous!

    Familiarize yourself with some of the dining and shopping discounts that you get at certain places in the park (depends on the type of AP you have).

    If you ever forget your pass, you get one free complimentary pass for each year that you are an AP holder. Just go to a ticket booth and ask for it (ID required). After that, you'd have to pay for a replacement card ($30 ?).

    If you plan on going to the park a lot, and you'll be driving there, consider adding on free parking to your pass (if you don't already have it). You'll save a lot of money!

    If you don't have the highest level AP, you can always upgrade at any time; you only have to pay the difference.

    Enjoy your new AP, Momeraths! And welcome to our little famliy.

    I don't mean to sound snotty... Sorry about that! I'm just really excited because I've been saving up forever. I went three times this year and then I realized it would probably be smarter to get a pass.

    Re: Disneyland secrets?

    The Hub is the center area where the statue of Walt and Mickey are located. The meet usually occurs around noon, and we meet at the bench that is second or third to your left if you enter the Hub from Main Street. Just look for a bunch of strange obsessed looking people wearing all manner of Disneyland shirts, jackets, coats, hats, bonnets, jewelry, etc. Sometimes all at the same time!

    Welcome to the board and come spend some crazy time with us. We are so cool. But courteous and nice at all times. We all keep our hands and feet inside the Hub until the meet comes to a complete end (or everybody takes off for lunch, whichever comes first).

    Thank You Poisonedapples
