    Oh Tiff, so happy you are getting to go. Sure hope you get the 2 day hopper. We've tried to do it in a day, it is just to difficult to get it all in and we wound up upgrading the ticket to a two day, that way you can enjoy yourself.

    I love the Small World so much more at Disneyland!

    And here is a link to all Ears that may help you with your other concerns.
    Remember if you are in doubt ask a CM and they will take you off stage for demo seating, out of view from all. This All Ears site also links to Pass Porters book. WDW At Large - One Size Does Not Fit All!

    There is plenty to do in that area. We slept on the Queen Mary and ate there too. Drove to Newport Beach. Saw the Stars, remember to look at the people looking at the stars, it is funny.

    DH and I have yet to take our kids to Disneyland, it is still on our to do list, I best hurry. Can't wait to hear details of your plans and trip.
    Thanks Gabe!!

    If it is raining several rides will not be operating such as the tea cups (no roof) or Alice (parts of it go outside).
    Thanks Brian! Were going on a Sunday and Monday so hopefully The first half of Sunday people might be at church and then Monday crowd free would be great! Thanks again.

    It's on the left side of Main Street USA, right next to City Hall.

    Make sure you bring your magnifying glass, you will need it to find Sleeping Beauty Castle

    We found out why we were having such a hard time trying to find a flight, There is two huge conventions at the center across from DL. So I'm preparing for heavy crowds on Sunday but with luck they will all be at the conventions on Monday!

    Have a fun, safe trip!! That's so exciting, I'm still waiting for my opportunity to visit DL for the first time! I hope the crowds are low for you!

    Your resort looks gorgeous! We visited Niagara falls this past October and stayed at an Embassy in Canada. It was a big treat, very accomodating and upscale. We really, really enjoyed it. Hope you'll be able to say the same!

    Thats funny, so did my DS.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    It looks like the hotel will be an upscale hotel, and I'm excited about staying there.

    He he! I was trying to orient myself using the castle, doesn't work so well when it is so short the surrounding trees hide it!

    I just checked out the website The El Capitan Theatre -- The Official Home Page and it says that Pinocchio is playing right now. I also saw something about having breakfast with Mickey and Minnie on Saturdays and Sundays before watching the 10am show. There is a Disney's Soda Fountain and Studio Store there as well. Sounds cool.

    Last time I went there there was just a Disney Store next to it!

    We went there and had a delicious milkshake! Meet the Robinsons was playing at El Capitan at the time.
