I've never seen it crowded never crowded just a few people.
Agreed. Once about 10 people get there, the railing is full and the already-not-great view becomes no view. So unless you stake it out early (we accidentally went an hour early a month or so ago, thinking it started an hour earlier than it did; an hour earlier and we were the only ones up there), you may not have a view at all. And as OPs have said, the view is not great to begin with, so if you really want to see the show and projections, see it from inside DCA. It is open to all GCH and VGC guests with a room key.We have been up on the GC 6th floor viewing are a few times . The problem with seeing WOC from that area, is that it doesnt even really have to be very crowded to not see the show . If you have enough people up there to fill in the space at the railing ........you cant see past them and down to where WOC is .
Cant remember ......
Is that area open to all GC guests or just those staying in the DVC rooms ? For some reason I thought it was only DVC ???
Not usually, although we had some awesome pixie dust with our room request in November when we were there for our 30th anniversary. I don't know if we got lucky or if it was done intentionally, but we got our top choice of room request (this was a DVC room, so there aren't separate categories to select for views like the hotel rooms). They sometimes say something when you are checking in, just wishing you happy birthday or whatever. I don't think we've received buttons at GCH.We arrive next week for our stay at GCH. When we made the reservation they asked if we were celebrating anything special and took note. Do they do some extra for your stay? I’m guessing if anything it’s a button and congrats upon check in.
Unlike WDW hotel information does not appear in the DL app. The only thing you will see is any ADRs you make. When you check in they will give you your tickets which you can then scan into the app. After you enter the parks that day if you purchase maxpass you can start pulling fastpasses.I'm sure this is addressed somewhere on these forums, but I can't find the right search terms. I figured I would start here.
We have a package at GCH in mid-October. I made the final payment last week.
I went to the Disneyland app but I don't see anything about my stay in there? I do see our OBB Halloween party tickets in there, but not the daily park tickets.
Will they show up eventually in app?
I see the reservation when I log in to the Disneyland website and I do see this note -
Delivery of Tickets
For all reservations paid in full, travel documents (such as vouchers or certain fulfillment cards, if applicable, or travel itinerary confirming reservations) will be delivered to the Front Desk of Guest's hotel. Packages can be picked up on the date of check-in at the hotel.
But I kind thought it was all electronic and seamlessly connected but maybe I am missing a step? Do I just scan them when we get onsite?
thank you!Unlike WDW hotel information does not appear in the DL app. The only thing you will see is any ADRs you make.

we were there at the end of July celebrating our 30th , they asked when checking in if celebrating anything and they gave us a couple of buttons.We arrive next week for our stay at GCH. When we made the reservation they asked if we were celebrating anything special and took note. Do they do some extra for your stay? I’m guessing if anything it’s a button and congrats upon check in.
Room service is available 24 hoursDoes anyone know if the hotel offers room service and, if so, when it begins? We're considering an early bfast in our room before rope dropping.
Thank you! Great info.Room service is available 24 hours
The overnight menu (roughly Midnight to 6AM) is rather minimal.
Breakfast starts at roughly 6AM (sorry I don't recall the exact times).
Breakfast can be ordered with marking a menu and leaving on the door overnight.
It depends on the timing and the lines. We've opted to go through the hotel/DCA late afternoon and most times that has worked out really well. In the mornings (not early entry) to noon, we found that going through DTD was easier.Is hopping through DCA to get to DL quicker than going through the front of the hotel and DTD?
Be aware that if you enter DL too quickly after entering DCA, you may experience an additional delay for the turnstile CM to call a lead. Apparently it's an attempt to cut down on people sharing tickets.Is hopping through DCA to get to DL quicker than going through the front of the hotel and DTD?
You might get a better idea on the DVC Forums (particularly the Purchasing Forum). With that being said the typical response from guides is that the resort isn't accepting anyone for the waitlist; however, exceptions have been known to be made. Now a few things to consider is the premium buying direct is extremely high for VGC and the member benefits are very low for those who won't be going to WDW. DLR doesn't offer much in terms of discounts for DVC owners (other than dining/shopping).we stayed at the villas a couple weeks ago and absolutely fell in love with them. I know they are sold out but is there a wait list you can get on with Disney or is the only option resale? If there is a wait list how long is it?
