Impressive. We're in 5516. We're just 3 (DD is 12) and the studio has felt plenty large enough for us (we stay in 1BRs a lot).

I think our original room was maybe 2109?? I know it was 2nd floor and an odd ending, which didn't match up with room #s you had recommended (x504). Since I was pretty confident our original room wasn't ready at 7, that not many others if any had checked in that day, and we got a terrible 1st floor view last time - I asked at the desk for something better.

Hey, we just checked out of 5516 on Friday morning. Hope we left it in good condition for you. Loved the room and the view. It was right next door to the 1BR we stayed at back when VGC first opened.

Hello!
Does anyone there know what days DCA opens for magic mornings now that Carsland is open ?
And does everybody get carded by the entrance ? I'm wondering if I have to bring my kids room keys or not.
Thanks

Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday for DCA.

We only had to show one key, but I've seen others mention being asked for everyone's.

We just did EE at DCA again today and aCM was giving the family behind us a hard time because they only had 3 of their 4 room keys. They did end up letting them in though.

We just returned from our first trip to the Grand Californian. We stayed in a 1-bedroom and enjoyed almost everything about it. One word of advice to newcomers: Pack your own toilet paper! I have never seen such low quality toilet paper in my life. Even the t.p. in the parks is higher quality than what they provide at the GC. Very odd given the cost (high points) needed to stay there.

Is there a concierge or ticket desk inside the GCH? I have a 2br villa reserved for Sunday 4/14 - Friday 4/19, 5 nights and 6 days. We're staying the Saturday night prior 4/13 across the street at Desert Inn. Originally I was going to check in at 6 am and get started in EMH at CA on Sunday and have a non-park day in the middle of our trip on Wednesday. But our family tends to be late risers and the idea of waking up later on Wednesday for EMH was sounding better and better. So then I decided to switch things around and have Sunday be our non-park day but we'd have to give up our one chance to see Fantasmic.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to add a 6th day to our tickets. I think it makes perfect sense that if we're going to be staying there for 5 nights and 6 days, to allow us to add a 6th day. I know there are no guarantees though and it may depend on getting lucky on approaching the right ticket cast member at the main ticket booths. I was hoping that I might have a better chance by talking to the ticket people at GCH and explaining that since I am staying there for the 5 nights and 6 days, could I add the 6th day?

Any thoughts on how likely this might be?

I assume you are asking whether you could add an extra day to the 5-day ticket that is sold (5 days being the maximum)? While I can't say for 100% sure, I can say I think that is highly unlikely. The ticket pricing is set by corporate management, and I am pretty positive the people selling the tickets would not have the authority to set their own pricing for a 6-day ticket. The pricing is tiered in a very specific way: to go from a 3-day to a 4-day ticket costs an extra $25 (per adult), to go from a 4-day to a 5-day costs an extra $15, and to go from a 5-day to a 6-day ticket would cost what...? The ticket sellers would not have the authority to make that call.

Of course, you always have the option to purchase an extra 1-day ticket for $125 (or $87 without hopping privileges), but I doubt that is what you are looking to do.

Looks like mixed results. Here is a thread on the Disneyland board that may be of some help:

Others have reported being able to do this at Guest Services. The 5 day max was implemented to stop ticket renters. However others have reported being told No. I'd check in with guest services or your concierge and ask, not a ticket booth.
