[QUOTE=henkemeyer;949679]I’m getting set to take my family and meet my sister-in-law and her 7 yr old daughter at DL next week. We’re quite excited, obviously. This will be my 3rd trip to DL (I went when I was 5, and again in Oct 07), my family’s 2nd time, and my sister-in-law’s and her daughter’s FIRST time![/QUOTE]
Oh, man, you are going to have a blast!
I made lunch reservations at Ariel’s Grotto and Goofy’s Kitchen.[/QUOTE]
Very age appropriate, I think…
You might consider breakfast at the Plaza with characters…
I read that this is a pretty busy week, since its Spring Break week for CA (did I read that correctly?). I’m a bit nervous about the size of the crowds, even though we’re going Mon, Tue, Wed. Any advice on how to cope with the huge crowds? [/QUOTE]
It is going to be crowded. A friend just was there two nights ago. Go with the flow, try not to expect anything to be achieved quickly, and it should be okay… You might consider spacing, doing non ride activities when lines get too long.
I’m a fastpass junkie, and I know (or at least I think I know) all the tricks associated with FP (like the 2 hour threshold between fast passes, and the fact that you can use them even after they “expire” on the same day, etc).
The best suggestion is send someone with all the tickets out early to start getting fast passes. As soon as the half hour or hour is up, you can get more. The length of time will increase for the rest of the morning, but if someone volunteers to do just this, you will have fast passes, as opposed to them being emptied by noon.
Any other tips you might have will be greatly appreciated!
There are a few trip reports on here for Disneyland. I suggest reading a few, it would provide some suggestions for breakfasts and Dinners (read Jazz Kitchen) :pirate:
