But even though Disneyland closes at 9, you don't have to leave at 9. You can line up for your last ride at 8:59 and they will let you ride. So think 9:30 by the time that is over. Then you have to exit the park and as long as you are walking in the direction to leave, they don't make you sprint. My guess, and this is pure specualtion, is that they want everyone out asap but don't get antsy until 9:45.



How far is Garden Walk?

Garden Walk is about mile from Stovall's. I figure that we can walk down there too.

Awesome. I need to Google it and see what's there.

It looks like it would at least be a fun place to find somewhere to eat.

Do you know some of the choices? I think there is a Cheesecake Factory. I am all about NOT eating anywhere that I can eat locally here. We have a CF about an hour from me but haven't been to it. Been to the one Vegas and AZ.

There is a Bubba Gumps and a California Pizza Kitchen. There are a lot of places.

We might have to copy you and head over on one of the grad nights. My muggle-turned-commando-Disney-park-dude hubby hates to even break during the day let alone leave early.

I tend to want to commando, my mom hates it. I warned her the other day that I plan on doing it again this trip. She likes to nap to during the day. With the shorter hours I am not even thinking about it.

I am more commando on paper. I don't budge though on arriving early. My motto: you can sleep at home and on the car ride home! Really. Once lunch hits, I am much more flexible. I really want to get some down time at the GCV too.

Good point. I am staunch on the morning too. And with the short hours we will be sleeping earlier. I crack myself up. If we were staying at the DLH like we normally do I would be more relaxed, but I don't think that Stovall's is quite the same.

How far is Stovall's? Why there instead of the DLH?

Stovall's is nearly a mile but that isn't that big of a deal. I just think that I like the DLH much more. Our friends we are going with cannot afford it. When I go by myself next year I think I am going to treat myself to stay onsite. Normally alone I will stay cheaper but, my DH actually suggested that I take advantage of AP rates when I go alone.

That's good that you are all staying togther. It makes it easier for coordination. Then they'll be close so you can commando them to the parks early.


I don't do Disney alone but the DLH sounds heavenly for a solo trip. I think you should take DH's advice.
