This past June we got Dream Fastpasses, I was SO excited. We've made more than several trips to both WDW & DL during the YoaMDs and this was really the only dream we received. I was thankful though, those Fastpasses were awesome.

Yikes, I think they look a little cheap, plastic-like, and cheesy. We shall see, maybe these are just the "test" boats? It doesn't re-open until Nov. right?

I do get a little tired of seeing the princess thing all over the place but they are classic characters and so long and the children love them I'm fine with it. I read all about this new Fairyland business and even though I prefer the traditional Tink I may just go see it once. Although, being 5'10 ...

Unfortunately I never get to see HMH because I live on the east coast and I'm a teacher, it's virtually impossible for me to get over there this time of year. I don't think they should make it permanent but MAN I would love to get to see it once. We only travel to Disneyland in June.

DVC members & the new Bay Lake Tower

Just wondering how many DVC members here decided to add on at the new Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary? We added on & I can't WAIT to stay there after it opens. I know the theming & style may not excite everyone but it's something DH and I will absolutely love.

Thoughts about the new tower?

We stayed at the Grand Californian June '07 and absolutely loved it. We use our DVC points though, if I had to pay cash I'd stick with the Disneyland Hotel like we normally do. We do a lot of 'resort time' though, I like to come back to the room in the middle of the afternoon, use the pool, etc. I p...

I absolutely think the fried chicken meal at the French Market is a great value, you get SO much food!! A side salad, roll, 3 pieces of chicken, and either fries or rice/beans! It's DELICIOUS too!

I think Rancho Del Zocalo comes in close to that for me.

We got to ride it twice last week, we never saw the wait posted for more than "60 minutes" and actually a few times we walked by the ride was down. Must still be some bugs to work out. I LOVED IT, SUCH a blast! I can't wait to do the WDW version in October, to compare.

I was at this event and couldn't even BELIEVE how many people were already lining up on Main Street at park opening. I didn't bother waiting but got in later and I bought one of the 45th anniversary shirts, along with a mini-Tiki god. It was pretty cool.
