Disneyland Resort (DL, DLR, DCA) Discussion Thread

P. 391: Mickey's Toontown reimagining announced for 2023!

Recommended Posts

Sorry for butting into this conversation, but I'm probably headed to DL and DCA next Thursday and I have a question about World of Color really quick. With "Season of Light" ending on the 8th, and insider rumors strongly suggesting that the old WoC show will not be returning, does anyone know if WoC will be running after the 8th with a new show or not? Has anyone seen any midnight testings of a new show? My Google searches are coming up dry...

It's on the entertainment schedule for next week, so I'd imagine it's the original show next week.

I will be in the area this month for NAMM (as is tradition) from the 19th-22nd, and are thinking of jumping into the park here and there for some rides and tasty vittles. If anyone wants to join us for some drinks, we should be at Trader Sam's the night of the 19th.

Has anyone tried the new dole whips with rum yet!?

 

I may or may not have made them myself in the park. If I did, oh boy! Were they allegedly delicious on a possibly hot, undisclosed day. I've also taken one across the way to DCA, ordered a double shot at Ariels Grotto, and threw it in. That one is safe to brag about. Definitely delicious.

^^ Love that video. I kept pausing it, to make out all the "nostalgia" items in there.

 

And... Dole Whip with Rum?

Now why didn't I have that available back in September?

Hey everybody. I've just confirmed my trip to Disneyland in June. I was just wondering, how does the FastPass system work there? Do I need to reserve my spot ahead of time a la Disney World/Six Flags (kinda), or can I just randomly show up and be admitted into the Fast Lane a la Cedar Fair?

You go to the ride and use your ticket to acquire a paper slip. You will need to return to the ride during the hour time frame provided by the slip. You can't get two rides in the same one hour frame.

Thanks. Are these slips first-come-first-serve limited or are they unlimited? I take it I can't reserve things a day in advance...

First come, first served. You physically have to go to the ride itself to do this. Go to some of the Disney site and you can see the various suggested "touring plans". Usually these involve grabbing a Fastpass for a ride first thing in the AM, going to ride other stuff, then going back to that (e.g. getting one for Space Mountain, riding Autopia, Peter Pan, et al. then going back to Space Mountain later).

^Although I much prefer the Magic Band-style fastpasses in Florida, you can really make the California kind work. If you're strategic, you can get in all of the rides in a single day.

 

This is true, you just have to constantly be getting fastpasses throughout the day. The key is that you can get a 2nd fastpass as soon as your fastpass window opens. So if you have a FP for Space Mountain for 11am-12pm, as soon as 11am hits, you can get a fastpass for another ride. Also, your entire party doesn't need to be present to get the fastpasses. You can just send your tickets with one person and they can get the fastpasses for your entire group. Note that fastpasses for Radiator Springs Racers tend to run out by noon or 1pm, so either hit that ride first thing or get your fastpasses early.

 

If you stay at one of the three Disney hotels, you get into one of the parks an hour early every morning of your stay. Depending on your budget, this might be something you want to do. Also, if you purchase a ticket for 3 days or more, you get into the park an hour early once during your stay. The park that opens early switches every day, so one day DL is the early entry park and the next day CA is the early entry park.

Can't reserve days in advance like FP+, but the Disneyland phone app can tell you what time window is being offered at any ride that offers FP tickets. You will need to go to the ride and insert your park ticket in a machine that will spit out a FP ticket. After that, you can go get another FP ticket in another park immediately, or you can get a FP for another ride once your window opens/2 hours after you got your first FP, whichever comes first.

There is a new update from Mintcrocodile.

 

Wow, they have great pictures! I can't believe construction is moving so fast! Those rock formations are crazy!

 

They're really pushing for that 2019 opening date!

 

I've heard as early as Summer 2018. Is this being too optimistic?

 

At the speed they're going, it could be ready at some point in 2018, though it seems unlikely to me.

 

We must tread lightly, or else this thread will take a turn for the worse like the Cedar Point thread.

Yeah. Right now I'm just happy that ROA and the surrounding area is only (roughly) six months from being completed!

Hello err'body! I'm in the beginning stages of sprucing up the Wikipedia article for the Disneyland Railroad and I need your help.

 

To make the article complete I need pics of the DRR's five locomotives, but the archive of pics for the article doesn't have pics for all of them. At minimum, I need one pic of locomotive #1 (C.K. Holliday) and one pic of locomotive #3 (Fred Gurley) similar to the pic I attached to this post. If you have the pics I need and are willing to release them to the public domain, I will upload them and make sure to credit you when doing so. If you happen to have pics of all five locomotives that look relatively uniform (same angle, same place on the track, same time of day, etc.), that would be even better! I have already raised the article for the Walt Disney World Railroad to Good Article status, and that's my plan for the Disneyland Railroad article. With your assistance, I can easily make that happen.

^ I can't help you, but I wish you success in getting the photos you need.

 

I got to see two of the trains in their stations back in Sept. and didn't - take - one - photo of either of them.

 

Still kicking myself, after missing that golden up-close opportunity, before the trains started up again this summer.

 

So - I hope others connect with you, with the requested photos.

So, how about the BACK of a train? (o; Kidding. Only shot I got, sadly. Sept.14, 2016.
