Howdy Guys! Long time reader, first time poster. I was sitting at my apartment in Texas on Sunday when I got an email from my basketball band director saying that I'd get to go to Anaheim to play with the band at the UCLA/Texas A&M game. For Free. I noticed that we'd have an entire day to spend in LA/Anaheim doing whatever we wanted, so of course I decided that I needed to go to Disneyland, especially since out hotel ended up being the Marriott on Convention Way. I'm not really the Disneyland pro, having not been there in about 4 or 5 years. It's weird because I've been to Walt Disney World so many times and ended up working there over the summer that I could tell you anything about that resort, but almost nothing about its west coast counterpart. Anyway, I've got a few questions for you guys.
1)I'll be there December 7-9, and plan on going to the park on the 8th. What will the crowds/weather be like?
2)I'll be with a bunch of college kids, myself included. How is Downtown Disney(House of Blues, etc.) for college "activities?"
3)Since I've been to Disney World so many times, What are some of the must dos at Disneyland that are different than at the World?
4)I'm really into facts about the park. I love the Imagineering books on EPCOT and Magic Kingdom. Anything like that for Disneyland?
5)I was sent a comp holiday ticket for Walt Disney World since I worked there over the summer. It was a comp ticket and a holiday coupon book. Anyone know if I can get this to work at Disneyland? I figure probably not, but it's worth a shot.
I think that is all the questions I have at the moment. Sorry for the long post, but since I'm leaving soon, I don't have a lot of time to look all of this stuff up. Thanks and Gig 'Em!
