I thought about taking something like a Birko jug with us next time, to also heat up pasta or milk:

I'm sure there are similar type of products in the U.S. perhaps in camping stores

Cool, thanks! I bought a gadget for myself for Christmas that you just put in a cup of hot water and it heats it up. You plug it in and I gather the metal heats up. I need to give it a try. I think they used to be fairly common years ago before microwaves. It is smaller than a hot pot type thing, so would be easier to pack. I'll try to remember to post about it when I give it a try.

We stayed at the DLH last week and had a great time. If you need a microwave, there are microwaves for usein the Coffee Shop by the entrance to Goofies Kitchen. There are two cup coffee makers for use in the rooms for hot water. If you would like to bring your own full size coffee pot(we had a bagel toaster), simply unplug it and place it in top of closet after use. Do not leave it plugged in when not in use or not in the room. We used the toaster for bagels and french waffles we brought from home. We had a great time, hope you do as well....

Does anyone Know if they still have the trivia games or sheets for certain rides that you can get when you check in at Disneyland Hotel? We had a really fun time with that last time and my friend was Asking if they still have that?

We were there the last week of september and they had it then. The trivia was for the jungle cruise, pirates, small world, and finding nemo. My DS9 had a blast doing the trivia and thought the little prizes were awesome.

Ok another ? How long does the gift shop stay open on a Wed night? I hope they have an autograph book there. We need a new one and I was hoping we could pick it up

Do all the towers have the themed suites? I'm assuming the adventure suite would be in the adventure tower, the frontier suite in the frontier tower. What about the pirate suite?

You'll love it. We've stayed at both and decided we prefer the DLH. A little more hectic but FULL of magic! Enjoy!

All of the signature suites (themed) are in the Adventure Tower on the top floor (near the concierge lounge). I stayed in the FairyTale Suite in September--what an experience!! The themed suites include concierge so it's convenient being in the same tower and on the same floor as the lounge.

another odd question.

What connections are on the TVs? If I were to connect my laptop to the TV in order to watch DVD's is there a USB port? or some other computer cord?

We are staying at the DLH for the first time in March. I've never heard about these before, but they sound like fun! Do you just ask when you check-in?

Yes they still have the trivia for the rides. You ask at the front desk. They have them for small world pirates and I believe jungle cruise. If you get the right answers you get buttons and kids get to pick from a treasure box for pirates.
