My first post to this thread. Our family leaves on Monday, 4/1! DH and I visited as youngsters over 30 years ago. I still have my ears!! This will be DS (10 years old) first trip. Tonight at dinner, we were dreaming out loud about "what will we be doing this day next week at exactly this time?".

We fly PDX to LAX, take the shuttle and are staying at the Fairfield Inn. Our trip is from 4/1 to 4/5. We are prepared for busy crowds, but a dear friend shared a helpful/kind observation - he said when he visited Disneyland with his family, it was really busy, but he doesn't remember the crowds, he remembers the magic and the special time with his family.

I have read books, on-line resources and bought a touring plans subscription. We want to be prepared, but expect to "wing" it a bit as necessary. We don't have any dinner reservations. We plan to arrive at the park early, rest/swim/etc. at the motel in the afternoon and return for the evening.

Any suggestions for which park-which day for Magic Morning is appreciated!

Thanks!!!

Welcome! I'll add you to the first page. Unfortunately this is my first trip, so I'll have to leave good advice to the veterans

Getting closer for us too!!!! We are already very excited! I am wondering what the weather will be like at the end of April. I hope for some nice, warm weather.

pnwsurfer, when you come back please post about your experience. We will be staying at the same hotel, so I would appreciate any tips you will have to share!

2 weeks for us!! Crazy to think we won't even have landed for another hour and half at this time, blegh. I keep wanting to start packing but it's just too early!

The only thing left to do is book the airport shuttle - I'm leaning towards Super Shuttle but I just don't know! any recommendations?

That's the shuttle place we're using too, the Queen Mary hotel recommended it.

we use Super Shuttle all the time and never had any issues with them...book it on-line and then you don't have to worry about paying for it later, you can even add a tip if you want!

you'll really like the Fairfield! walking takes about 10 minutes or so to the gates! my best advice get to the parks for rope drop and get your top rides done first!
Magic Morning is only at Disneyland NOT CA Adventure!
your friend gave you some great advice....just enjoy and whatever you get done, you get done!
utilize fast passes when you can and have fun!



one more sleep for us!!!! finishing up our packing today ....we will arrive at DLH around 6pm tomorrow!

safe travels to all who are leaving and have a trip filled with

We had a great time this week! The crowds were the worst on Monday, and moderate at all other times...on Monday it was just packed. We are already planning our next trip, which will not be during spring break
