Hi!!!! I am glad that people are still finding my report uesful.Fairly new here but I found your report and loved reading it.
I'm planning on calling the concierge number today to inquire about some of the items on the itinerary but I did have a quick question if you wouldn't mind?
It states on the Disney website, VIP access. Is this access to the rides in Disneyland (as in not waiting in line)? We're trying to decide if we'll be going next August (instead of a Europe cruise - I think this is out). Also, is Walt's Barn and carousel included in the trip itinerary? I noticed you went there prior but also during the tour.
Thank you so much for your help!
I love your phots by the way. So nice!!
We did get lots of fast passes for rides but we did not get access without waiting in line except for Soarin' the morning of the DCA behind the scenes tour & the private Turtle Talk with Crush. We went on the Haunted Mansioin without waiting our first night at Disneyland as well, but I am not sure that is an every time thing.
A visit to Walt's Barn is contingent on the volunteers being able to be there to open it up for you. They do this the day you go to Jim Henson studios. I am not sure if there have been groups that did not do it or not, but they do say it may not always be available. We went to Griffith Park on our own before the tour started as I wanted to make sure to see the carousel (which was closed) & Walt's barn (which we could see through the fence since they were closed) just in case we didn't go. It was great being able to go in Walt's barn though....so much incredible memoribilia.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions.
