    Question What are some unique things I can do next time I'm in DL?

    What are some unique things I can do outside of riding the rides that I can do when I'm in DL. I'm planning a trip there in Oct for 6 days. I want to take the "A Walk in Walt's Footsteps" Tour for sure. But I'm looking for other things as well.

    ALso in California adventure.. but mostly DL..

    Well Jules and I always do certain things...(besides the drinks at the Cove Bar! ).
    For instance, every morning when we enter the park, first thing we do is go to the Penny Arcade and pay 25 cents a piece for a Fortune reading. We immediately put them in our pockets and enjoy the park. At the very end of the day, as we go back to our hotel, we pull them out and read them to each other...it's very special!

    Visit the Disney Gallery, you can really spend some time there. sit and people watch either in NOS or on Main Street. Visit the Opera House and the Fire House, and I think Walk iin Walts Footsteps is a great idea.

    Take time to go to both Disneyland Hotel and GCH. They both have wonderful ambiance.

    I havent spent a lot of time at DCA so cant help you much there.

    A little piece of heaven

    No, but we need a fullblown report with pictures...and then you can even include every single bathroom in the resort.

    You can report on which ones dispense warm water and which ones only dispense cold - which ones have auto flush and which ones don't. Which ones have had washing instructions - etc and so on.

    I'm more than anything, just kidding, but it would be funny if someone did that.

    There is the balcony dessert buffet for Fantasimc (extra cost, reserve in advance)

    Ask to ride in the wheel house of the Twain (if it's back in service)

    Ask to ride up front in the monorail

    Ask real real real nice if you can take a ride in the private rail car known as Lilly Belle (good luck on that one...)

    There is a flag ceremony each evening

    Visit Innovations

    I'm sure others will add more...

    Go for a tender ride on the train, ask a cast member to see the secret pet cemetary at HM, look for hidden Mickeys, and above all...just sit. Pick a spot and look around, so often people spend the whole day moving from one place to another and forget to just enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of the park.

    well, believe it or not it's been done (with photos and graphical "statistics"), though I understand it's not completely up to date. do a websearch for Happiest Potties on Earth if you're curious!

    The hard part living 2 miles from Angel Stadium, 4 miles from DLR is deciding what to do next.

    It's above Pirates inside the Disney Gallery. Great store and you can bring lunch up there and eat on tables set up in the middle. Very nice hidden place, rarely crowded.

    we do the fortune thing also, but we read them right away. I do keep them for a while. i still have the one from my last visit on my desk at work.

    I think my favorite fortune machine from when I was a child is gone. It used to be in the store right near POTC and I thik it was pirate themed. I used always get one from there, but now I get them on main street.

    We also like getting ice cream from the gibson girl and eating it on the porch across the street.
