    I don’t know how your group feels about tours but that could be an option?

    I also snagged a Lamplight Lounge reservation. Seems like a lot of us have! Excited to try it. Seems to have mixed reviews, but willing to give it a go.

    I'm going with a friend will be there Feb 28 - Mar 3 at the Grand. We are doing Vegas for three nights before and one night on the Queen Mary after. It's been a few years since I've been to Disneyland so I'm excited to be headed back.

    Sounds great! I’ve booked my sit down meals for lunchtimes when the park
    starts to get crazy and will be mobile ordering for the evening time and eating more on the go to maximise rides/shows (not that there are many) - does that sound silly to you?

    Sounds perfect to me. The soup in a bread bowl in New Orleans Square is pretty tasty (Harbour Galley or Royal Street Verandah). Probably would skip French Market Cafe in NOS, haven’t been too impressed with them.

    Myself, my husband, and my four year old daughter will be there February 23 - March 1. We are staying at the Fairfield Inn & Suites. Chose the closeness over a continental breakfast. I'm sad that Fantasmic is down :( I wasn't even sure what it's hours were anyways but the confirmation that it's 100 percent down is sad. And what was the mention about the princess castle being down?

    Good to see that some of my Disneyland Paris stratgies are applicable in Disneyland Resort!

    Yes, it's expected that Sleeping Beauty Castle will have some covering ("scrim") over it. Last time they did this (2015, I think) they had an artist's rendering of the castle from before it was built. It was neat to see what they had thought it might look like!

    We are checking in at the BWPPI on Feb 2 with our first park day on the 3rd. Getting really excited now that Christmas is over. We haven’t been in 4 years and finding it a little ironic that the Castle was completely covered up with canvases on our last visit and sounds like more of the same this time. Also a little disappointed with the lack of night time entertainment. Although we are super stoked the Matterhorn will be running. The last time we got to ride was 2007 and we’ve been to the parks 4 times since then.

    Well he's only 4 so the whole situation is confusing. We've actually started to talk about it now with him in a way he'll understand.

    Hello fellow Feb. trippers. The family and I will be going Feb 12th-16th. We will be staying at Castle Inn and Suites. Has anyone had any experiences here? We have been to DL many times but have never tried this hotel. The last time we went to DL was on NYE two years ago so I'm looking forward to seeing it a little less crowded.

    I'm checking in February 13th through the 16th! I'm from Florida and decided to make the trip to see Panic at the Disco on the 14th and go to Disneyland. I've only been to Disneyland once before and that was in 2011 so I'm so excited!

    I have a conference in Ontario, so close enough for me to drive over to DL. I will be solo at DL on Feb 10 from noon until tired and likely the evenings of the 11th and 12th.

    My family is visiting DL for the first time Feb. 14-18, just three days in the parks and a "rest" day visiting other local sites. We are WDW vets, ready to learn all about how the West Coasters do it. Planning two days in DL and one in DCA, staying at Spring Hill Suites. Have reservations at the Plaza for Minnie's character breakfast and Carthay Circle (word is that's one of THE places to eat, right?) We already booked Max Pass before the price went up so that's one bonus. Appreciate any advice.

    February is getting pretty close! I updated the list for all the new people joining the Feb crowd.

    My travel partners and I have locked in all of our reservations...well maybe we'll do one more. We're debating breakfast. I love Carnation Cafe but the hotel has free breakfast. Decisions, decisions. I'm going to start working on this trips "Food Bucket List" this week. The list is long, but the will is mighty so I'm hoping we get through most of it! Craving a corn dog right about now! 43 days to go!!
