|New Virtual Walk dates & deadlines|
|From the bottom of our hearts, we’d like to thank our CHOC Walk family for the overwhelming support you’ve shown—it’s been a year of tremendous change, but we’re grateful to be getting through it, together.|
As we continue to look out for one another, we felt it was best to move our Virtual Walk to Saturday, May 22, out of respect and care for our community. We appreciate your understanding! With this new event date, the deadline to register to receive your items before the event is now extended to Wednesday, April 7 – which gives you more time for your CHOC fundraisers! Visit the Event Info page below to stay up to date on the latest details, and be sure to confirm your address and tshirt size before the deadline by clicking here.
I've been trying to get my Memorial Day weekend reservation back for months now (long story, been holding earlier weekends in May by constantly checking availability), and was finally able to snag Fri-Sun in a studio! We'll be going regardless of the park opening, since my 2019 points expire on May 31. Still hoping a wait list will come through so we can have either Sat-Mon in a 1 bedroom or Fri-Mon in a studio, but whatever we get it would be amazing if the parks end up being open too.Cedar Fair's CEO Richard Zimmerman in a recent earnings call was asked about his confidence in their May 22nd reopening date for Great America in California they named (and all their various parks around the US) and he replied by saying "I think we believe we can get all of our parks reopened, and we tried to pick days that that we thought made a lot of logic given the likely unfolding of the recovery in each of the states." That feels a little reminisce of last summer in California when theme parks didn't have the green light and announced their reopening dates. However, I think Zimmerman's confidence that "all" their theme parks including Knott's can open by May is a good sign of what's to come for them and therefore, Disneyland. He went on to say "I would term all of the conversations, even in California, very productive. We understand where we sit in the phase reopening of each of the economies, and we're working cooperatively and collaboratively with all the jurisdictions and all our industry partners to make sure that we move forward as quickly as is prudent. " Definitely lots of interesting bits of news coming out!
Our favorite snacks tend to be seasonal (they had this single portion banana cheesecake at Holly Jolly in 2019 that was to die for!!!), but of the permanent snacks, the first place we head to eat every trip is the Mint Julep bar for those beignets and whatever the julep flavor of the season is. Often we pick one ride in Tomorrowland, go get our beignets, then Big Thunder ... They count as breakfast right?Hey Mayzies.... Lets start a Question of the Week! Anyone can ask- on Monday-ish. So.... this week.... what‘s your favorite Disney snack?

Oh man, I probably would have just stayed off-site. That down time in between check out and check in is when we are in the room/resort the most. We like to rope drop, get a bunch of rides in, grab an early lunch on our way out of the park around 10:30 or 11, then enjoy the pool and the room (while grabbing MaxPasses for the evening) until around sunset, then head back into the park, have dinner and ride rides until we're tired and usually end up back in the room to enjoy World of Color and/or fireworks (although our teens are opting to stay later for several "one last rides" as they get older and want more independence). I can see two nights in two different size rooms working if you're out of the room for an event.I had that happen for my daughters dance trip last year. We only get 4-5 months notice. I stalked and snagged one day in a studio and on night in a 1BR. I never was able to get two of the same so we had to switch rooms. It wasn’t ideal, but not too bad.
