    They also have a free Continental Breakfast. There's quite a lot there. Coffee, juice, fruit, muffins, Bagels, Cereal, you can make toast. It is served early enough that you can eat before you go to the park, which saves you a lot of money on your breakfast meals. I did this almost each morning of my last trip to Disneyland.

    I would also recommend taking a backpack with snacks and bottles of water. You may also want to rent a locker for the warmer clothes as the winter nights tend to cool down. As to souvenirs I would hold off on buying anything until the end of your visit each night... I don't know what your preferences are but carrying things around all day can be both annoying and pointless! If you are able to stagger your meals and eat during the non peak times that will help with what little crowds are there. Plan to use one of the days, probably Sat, to hit up the parade and F! Overall good for you, have fun!

    Thank you for the suggestion. That's definitely worth looking in to.

    Re: It's time to act to make my wish come true!

    All good pieces of advice in my opinion!

    While I don't have to save for DL because I'm local, I DO have a special savings account for WDW trips. I keep it at a high-yield savings account, and you'd be surprised how quickly your trip money can grow. Emigrantdirect.com and ingdirect.com are both great online banks.

    Before you know it, you should have enough money for your trip. Let us all know when you're coming out for your Disneyland visit!

    I also eat my main meal at lunch to save some money. Portions and menu selections are about the same, and they cost so much less. Then I can snack later on or have a light dinner.

    Unless you see something that you absolutely MUST have in Toontown. Toontown closes at 8 (or is it 8:30?), so if you see something in there that you want really bad, and hadn't seen it anywhere else, then I'd suggest getting it while your back there. But you can always buy it the next day.

    Re: It's time to act to make my wish come true!

    I would like to thank everyone for their input and for their help. I have been thinking things over and I think it is going to be much more likely for me to have saved up enough money for myself by this time next year so that I can book a trip for the last week/weekend of January 2009. This leaves me plenty of time to save up and some wiggle room in case something comes up I didn't plan on in my budget which is always a possibility.

    Well things have changed in my favor. I am now employed. At this moment in time I am looking at sometime in the late spring (right before Summer). Stay tuned. You'll definitely be hearing about this. I can't wait to meet Y'all!

    YAY Great news!!!
    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...

    Well, depends on what you want for souvenirs. Tees with "Disneyland" written on them usually run from $18 to $25. Sweaters $35 to $60. Keychains $3 to $10, etc.

    I wish you the best of luck for your trip!!

    Isn't there an outlet around SoCal for that kind of stuff too?

    Yes, it's the Disney Warehouse in Fullerton. It usually has the things that Disneyland is currently carrying....but not all the time (ie, you'll find shirts with 2006 on them.) I would suggest checking out that shop first before DL, that way you'll know whether or not they have the stuff you want from the park.

    Don't forget to budget for inflation prices. Disney usually ups their ticket prices yearly.
