Couldn't dress them all in Disney cause thought might give away the secret but DH and myself in subtle Disney!!! :)
Have a safe trip! Sounds like the kids are about to be very surprised and happy! :-)
At airport....kids think we are gojh to disneyworld so far!!
I used to live in Houston so I was about to wonder how you'd keep the secret for the 2 day drive until I read airport lol. Good luck and happy flying!! Be sure to record their reactions because its going to be magical!
Thank u all!! Just loaded on plane.....nervous now....not fond of flying! :0/
Safe travels! I'll be there later, was hoping for RD but didn't get enough sleep. Meeting up w/@paulakim & family in DCA. Keep us posted!
I don't like flying much either but looking at how relaxed the flight attendants are helps me. Plus I know I should fear the car way more than a plane, it's irrational fear, so just try to remind yourself. You'll forget about flight when in the magic!!
Such fun this morning. Have so much fun.
Sitting next to my boys and they are awake enough now to realize the captain has been saying enjoy your stay in LA!! :)
Do they have the connection yet about what's clots to LA?
How exciting! Have a great time!
This is so much fun to read! Keep the updates coming, and have a BLAST!
AWESOME!! It's gonna be a great day!!
Aaah! So exciting! Have a great time!
Yeah! Drive safely!
Woo hoo!!! Enjoy the magic!!
Sounds like all is going well. Have fun!
Exciting! Have a great trip!
So excited for you guys!
Made it to DLH...room not ready so we headed to Disneyland. It's hot!!!! So standing in lines is kinda rough. Road mark twain boat and then pinochio. Text room ready so decided to go swim and come back when....
I tried the forum today and I just don't like it as much. Not as user friendly as chat. I will enjoy this while it lasts...
8:32pm on 7/22/14 by
Lurked over there with the link that Nay posted for us (thx u!)and it just seemed so 'cold'. Can't imagine them keeping both though.
8:36pm on 7/22/14 by
I know with more peeps, it'll warm up. I know in time, I will too. :)
8:39pm on 7/22/14 by
@nana agree not as close as chat. Check it out again.. just post pics of DD. I think I'll keep checking here until we can't anymore right?? You a rule breaker too ;-)
8:44pm on 7/22/14 by
Yeah, I will have to move over there anyway @tink. There'll be no one to chat with over there! I do enough 'talking to myself' as it is! :)
9:13pm on 7/22/14 by
@nana we will never leave you all alone. Here. There. Somewhere.
9:58pm on 7/22/14 by
Thanks @kat! You gals look great with your babies! All of you could be Dsiblings and not the Dmoms! Just beautiful! :)
10:49pm on 7/22/14 by
10:51pm on 7/22/14 by
I'm trying it but it's not there for me yet.
11:09pm on 7/22/14 by
I'll be here for as long as it takes Rose though I will continue to lurk...
11:13pm on 7/22/14 by
gotta keep up with our friends too! :)
11:15pm on 7/22/14 by
If they somehow make it so you have to be in the park to start a thread (gps) then I'll just start one every time I'm in the park, then you all can chime in to "answer" Sound like a plan? :)
11:18pm on 7/22/14 by
I like your thinking!
11:23pm on 7/22/14 by
There you go! Rose, just lurked over and saw the awesome pic of you young ladies with hunky man! Yum! Yum! I needed that pick me up too!:)
11:48pm on 7/22/14 by
I honestly don't see them closing this down and making the forum mandatory, especially if they read and post on chat which I've seen staff do a couple of times. I don't think they want to be portrayed asthe bad guys wwhich is what will happen if they forc
2:13am on 7/23/14 by
e us to do something we don't want to do. And I don't think they would lose too much by scrapping the forum idea altogether and maybe update the chat here (possibly add a notification when someone responds on a post?) But I'm not too worried about the for
2:15am on 7/23/14 by
ceful approach. And if they do go that way...I'll be pretty surprised and dissapointed but ultimately I'd have to give the forums a shot
2:15am on 7/23/14 by
Forum seems helpful as a searchable repository for commonly asked questions. Chat is great for trip sharing & reports (like The Great Pressed Penny Hunt). Can see both being of value.
4:49am on 7/23/14 by
Agreed! And since we are all rule breakers we just use both until we get busted and have to write 100 x i will try the forum :-)
7:15am on 7/23/14 by
I don't think the forums are going away. Unfortunately this is a money issue for them. And while there are a lot of complaints on wdw chat, most of the frequent posters are posting a ton on the forums. There are hundreds of threads already.
9:49am on 7/23/14 by
Oh, the forum is definitely not going away. It's great to get all the info you need in one tight package but tough on the casual chatter like myself. I like the idea @Wahoo suggested of just eliminating all the excess pages of chat, if that helps at all.
11:09am on 7/23/14 by
I would gladly give up my chat history to keep Lines arrive and well. If you really want something, you can copy and paste.
*alive* I sound like Scooby Doo...
Me too @deke! It's hard for me to find what I'm looking for in my chats any way so I rarely look there. I copy/paste or email the link to myself.
We just can't lose chat! Hopefully there is a place for both. This is more than a chat room, it is a modern family with @nay mothering her crazy kids always getting into trouble ;0).
Agreed. I keep trying out the forum but just not feeling it. Miss the personal feeling of chat.
@kristina totally right! -I'm trying over there.. Been peeping on the WDW side. Boy i thought we were kinda crazy... they are.... wow!!Looks like they have fun though :-)
Currently there aren't enough of us in the forums to make this work. However WDW side is starting to feel more like chat, because all the people who post a gazillion times a day are there. Several threads that feel very much like chat....
...there is 1 about who everyone is (like our's here), plus they have La Cava del chat that you can post anything, and has a warning to those entering that it is for adults and may include drinking & cavorting (Len's wife Laurel started it). So...
...the "chat" feel is alive and well in the WDW forums, but not in the DLR & UOR forums. So for now, we stay here, but it can work like this chat over there, if they make us move. @93111tink, WDW chat is was different than here...
...is different I mean. Always has had lots of controversy and locked threads, drinking stories, innuendo, & then the people who hate that: put them together and it makes for quite the reading material! Check out bswan's post in la cava controversy thread
LOL @wahoohokie ! I know I posted a few myself that I thought was pushing it but ... they are totally more crazy then us . Still going back n forth. I know it's only been a few days but miss hearing from everyone regularly. Nana, errobin,JackOfAll,Skywalk
Plan to watch first Aladdin show today at 12:40. Don't need to be first in line but don't want to be last. What time should we line up?
I've gotten in line 10-15 mins before, seat was upstairs.
I don't think I've ever lined up earlier than 10 minutes before a show, and usually get something down in the orchestra area. Never tried for the upstairs, though.
Was anyone in the park yesterday. I'm a DL newbie and TP said yesterday was a 5.1 but it felt pretty crowded. Does anyone have any feelings on actual numbers yesterday? TP did great getting us through lines! No super long waits. :)
Honestly I don't know what I would rate the crowd, It felt at least as busy as some 7/10 days I've done at WDW.
We used the TP feature where you design your own plan and kept optimizing it, later in the day we did our own thing.
It was busy but less so than Monday and Tuesday.
Just got here. About a dozen or so school busses in Pinicchio lot. Btw crowd calendar based on wait times not number of people.
I scrolled back through to see if this had been asked, but couldn't find anything. Locals, what do you think the crowds will be like 8/17-8/21? We have a trip planned for 9/3-8 but for various reasons want to move it.
I looked online and it looks like some schools go back the 11th and others the 20th. But AP blocks are off at that point. TP says 3 for crowd level and before i pull the trigger I would like to get feedback. Thanks!
Honestly it is hard to predict. LAUSD will be in session that week, but lifting of AP blocks will bring quite a few passholders in from schools that aren't back in. However, you will have longer days with an earlier opening time in August--much, much...
...better RD advantage. Plus, show schedule will be full, staffing still good. Weather should be about the same. With RD and a good plan, I'd choose August.
You mean you don't speak 'forum'? ;) It's fairly easy to learn, (though NOT intuitive) but once you do, you'll wonder why you bothered. I think it's the Esperanto of the computer world ... something only a few can actually love and not at all beautiful.
5:41pm on 7/22/14 by
You both are making me laugh! Why can't we just go back fo the old way?
Money. TP breached the 100K member mark. All those people using lines and the friendly atmosphere made it popular. Popular means bandwidth. Bandwidth is expensive. So instead of raising the price a little they changed the product to fit the $$.
6:01pm on 7/22/14 by
I always felt TP was inexpensive and marveled at those that spent thousands on vacation who wondered if they should purchase TP for a year at $10. OK baffled. Does this help?
6:05pm on 7/22/14 by
I can open the new forum on my iPhone (have AT&T), but agree with @Jack that other options may have allowed Lines to be sustainable from a business perspective while allowing the community feel to continue.
6:19pm on 7/22/14 by
Besides raising price (which I would pay), could have deleted chat history on posts over 30 days, freeing up space in the server. I know Lines is "owned" by Len, et al, but I would say it "belongs" to the Liners.
6:21pm on 7/22/14 by
@JackOfAll your making me laugh so hard! Hey if this blonde can do it so can you. Although I did just post some pics that i Think are going where i want lol. I was just in forum n talked to @BellesRose n @nay. Have a headache
6:22pm on 7/22/14 by
Now so I'm here to report in. I'm using my pc logged in there is no link so i put forum in the search box and up comes some different choices so i clicked the first thing n got to forum. Headache from soo many different choices cannot imagine doing the
6:26pm on 7/22/14 by
Tink, use the DL link I posted above.
6:28pm on 7/22/14 by
WDW chat so many people...i click the Disneyland button not much going in there yet but after awhile I'm sure it will. Good luck!
6:28pm on 7/22/14 by
At work I build State of the art computers using tech not available for 2 years from now. I cannot find anything that says "Forum" or "lounge" or maybe my 10K post and 5 years here do not warrant access to the forums.
6:45pm on 7/22/14 by
So I got nothing.
6:46pm on 7/22/14 by
If you haven't logged out of all TP logins that might be lurking in a cookie somewhere you won't be able to see those places. Could be that.
6:48pm on 7/22/14 by
Thanks @nay will do. Come on everyone try to give it a shot! I even posted 2 pics. One profile one background. Didn't have to give any info they didn't already have.You Dont have to receive anything you dont want to.
6:49pm on 7/22/14 by
It's a buggy program.
6:50pm on 7/22/14 by
Tink, cute pics! :-)
6:58pm on 7/22/14 by
Thank you @nay DD is sure full of beans. I accidentally posted some on the WDW chat too. 2 likes already!! The one with Jessie n woody DD practically stole the show. Such a ham!
7:28pm on 7/22/14 by
You can do it Jack! I have never really used a forum, just on occasion to Disboards. I have been at it since Sunday and I promise it gets easier. Hang in there friends:-)
8:29pm on 7/22/14 by
Ok. Maybe I'm just totally ignorant, but when I go to that board it seems to be all about WDW. How do you get to Disneyland? It looks very complicated and sterile like.
9:01pm on 7/22/14 by
I have no idea why my reply got posted three times. That is totally weird. As if I don't feel stupid enough.
9:02pm on 7/22/14 by
If you just want to see Disneyland posts, look in the upper left for the "Categories" pulldown menu (just under the touringplans.com icon) and select "Disneyland"
9:02pm on 7/22/14 by
Mark (@jack). Ditto. My thoughts exactly. Poorly designed.
9:03pm on 7/22/14 by
Or, select the menu icon in the upper right (three horizontal, parallel lines), click, and then click on Disneyland. Both methods do the same thing
9:03pm on 7/22/14 by
Or, use the hyperlink Naomi (moorparknay15) posted above.
9:05pm on 7/22/14 by
I think I'll go back to using the crowd calendar only as I originally did and just not give a second thought to the other stuff. No worth the fuss.
9:22pm on 7/22/14 by
Come on over to the Disneyland section, then choose the thread title favorite DL picture. 93111tink, Nay, and I have posted some pictures.
9:24pm on 7/22/14 by
Thanks@wahoohokie!!So easy after you get it! I don't know what they were thinking when making it so easy for us to post a picture.LOL Disney crazy folks like us... OMWalt and no please @Skywalker you can't jump ship so soon!! Say it ain't so :-\
9:31pm on 7/22/14 by
@katshores posted a pic & Tink, I giggle each time I see your DD's Pooh Hunny Pot pic. Love her expression :-D
9:49pm on 7/22/14 by
Me too! @ tink you should send some pics in for the share your memories!
9:56pm on 7/22/14 by
Thanks ladies. That girl's a character for sure! So everyone check out all our pics on the new forum
8:28am on 7/23/14 by
OMG the forum is AWFUL. People posting pics of their cats?! How nice when I'm looking for direction and advice about DLR. You also lose the randomness of the questions is it is here. Send whomever thought up this forum thing down Splash mountain w/o a log
7:30pm on 7/23/14 by
Um, that would be Len? :-)
7:35pm on 7/23/14 by
I just glance at thread title, what doesn't interest me, I skip.
7:42pm on 7/23/14 by
You can also choose category you want to view, do a sort.
7:46pm on 7/23/14 by
Lol@alocksley your funny! Is that the first "search it" I hear? Wait til you see some of the other awful things posted on the WDW side! ;-)
8:56pm on 7/23/14 by
So sorry @alocksley. I totally thought you were joking! Just trying to get everyone to at least look over there at forum. I didnt mean to upset you with the crazy cat pics :-)
10:09pm on 7/23/14 by
I looked at it last night. Seems OK to maneuver around but also a very archaic forum compared to many. Maybe better when accessed from computer and not iPad? Replies post under comment but then in thread as well. Kind if strange to follow. But love
