    Top 10 things that I learned on Micechat that made my recent trip to DLR great!





    8) Hidden Mickeys: I had heard of these and knew a few but after hanging out here since March, I was much more prepared to look and find the Hidden Mickeys. I think I am going to pick up the book for the next visit so I can look more in depth next time.



    6) Fantasmic!: Ok, so I had never actually seen DLR Fantasmic!. I saw a show in Florida years ago that I think was similar but had never taken the time to see this show. We did not get there very early and ended up seeing it from the side but it was still a lot of fun and really cool to watch. And Murphy was great. I am glad that I took time out to watch Fantasmic!

    5) Rides are not always the priority: Rushing from ride to ride makes a day seem hectic and crazy. I read trip reports here that include pictures with characters. We took the time to meet Alice and the Mad Hatter. We waited in line for Goofy in his skeleton costume because my 36 year old husband had to get a picture with him. The rides were not the most important thing all the time and it was really fun and nice. The park was richer and had more depth. It was fun being giggly and excited to see characters. I am glad that we included this aspect of the park in our trip.

    4) Pins: We had so much fun trading pins. I big thank you for those in the pin trading section who taught me about Hidden Mickey pins and what to look for. I know we are still amateurs but we had a lot of fun.

    3) Photo Pass: I always get the Photo Pass and get suckered into buying the CD and pictures. But I learned a couple of things here. First, I had the CM take pictures with my camera too every time and did not feel bad about it. Second, I did not even look at the pictures at the resort. You guys taught me that I can do it online up to 30 days after. So I did not even view the photo pass there. No messing with the crazy lines or feeling pressure to buy right then and there.



    1) Bengal BBQ bacon wrapped asparagus: Another place I had never eaten at. The food here is great. Yummy grilled offerings and that asparagus is out of this world! I could eat that asparagus for every meal. How did I miss that all these years? So very delicious.


    So here are 10 reasons that my recent trip was better because of Micechat. Thank you all!

        My very first trip to Disneyland was back in July of 2005. As you can see, I joined MiceChat just prior to that. I have always said, that my very first trip to Disneyland was made so much more special because of all that I learned from MiceChatters about the Disneyland that they knew.

        I continue to read what MiceChatters know and experience at Disneyland and DCA, because MiceChatters tell it like it is. MiceChat is a fun pace for me to hangout. I don't get to visit Disneyland much, but when I do, I always know that I will have a fabulous time, and that's because of MiceChat.

          If you have the time, stop by City Hall and get a window guide. My daughter has the hidden Mickey book and just loves it. I will usually try to send her a cell phone pick of 1 everytime I'm there.

          I keep telling my wife that 1 day I'll go to the park and not ride 1 ride.

              BEST.THREAD.EVER!!!

              I'm glad we played a small part in making your trip special and could help you see some of the smaller things in the park that MANY people miss. I'm so glad you had a great trip.

              This made me :lmao:.

              It's so awesome to have a spouse who's a Disney geek as well. Of course, our disney geekdom goes to different levels, but she get's it and that's all that matters.

              On one upcoming trip one of our goals is to try and get all of the pressed pennies. We have started our collection from WDW but there is NO WAY you could do all those in a day, or even 10 days. But I think we can do the Disneyland pennies in a day.

                      Huzzah miceChat!
                      Good morning, son
                      In twenty years from now
                      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                      And I can tell you 'bout today
                      And how I picked you up and everything changed
                      It was pain
                      Sunny days and rain
                      I knew you'd feel the same things...

                        So glad that MC could help play a part in a great trip, although something tells me the people involved in the trip themselves are pretty wonderful.

                        But now I really, really want a bacon wrapped asparagus skewer from Bengal BBQ.

                          MiceChat really helped me have a feeling for the park and what to see when I first visited in 2006 as well. Although I believe I actually joined up after that...

                          EDIT: Yep, much later.
