I have so many questions I hardly know where to begin! DH, DD12, and I are visiting DL from 9/15-9/23. DH has a work conference from Sunday to Wednesday. We are staying at a neighboring hotel within walking distance of DL and then moving to the Disneyland hotel for the last 4 nights of our stay. We visited DL about 8 years ago and stayed 10 days. We didn't go anywhere else in Southern California and were totally satisfied making sure we got to do everything. At that time we had Premier passes since we also try to frequent WDW but I had sticker shock when I saw how much the price has increased. So since that is not an option for us my first question is- Is a five-day pass really the maximum number of days I can purchase? If not which day of the week would you skip visiting the park- Monday and Tuesday?We plan to head into LA and see a Dodgers game on one of those days. We also plan to go to the Halloween party one night. Our choices are the premier night on Wednesday 9/19 or Friday 9/21. Would either day be better than the other? Are dining reservations necessary like they are at WDW and if so how long should I wait to make them? Places we are considering are Carthay Circle, Plaza Inn for breakfast, Napa Rose, Carnation Café, and PCH grill for dinner. Can you tell me how the magic mornings work with our split stay? I know one will be included with our ticket but are these also for all Disney resort guests? So does that mean I should use one while we are staying at DH's work hotel? Would there be any benefit to buying Max Pass since we are planning such a long stay? Thanks so much for the help!
