Month to Go

intercot.com - Thu, 2017-05-18 16:21
I'm a teacher, so that narrows it down a little , although I HAVE been banking personal days. We've been a few times in December which I absolutely LOVED for the decoratrions, that atmosphere and "magicalness"! But we ran into so not so great weather, and couldn't swim much (not to mention to debacles with flights home not working out because of blizzard conditions on our end). The first couple of times crowds were pretty low, but the third time they were already getting kinda crazy by about the 15th or so. We went in September and LOVED the weather, and found the crowds very reasonable, not long lines for anything, really. But September is REALLY hard for a teacher, and June is out of the question for that reason also. I think for me, July and August would be utterly insane (we tried Disneyland in July once, and after 9 or 10 in the morning just gave up on ever getting on a ride). I'm thinking January and February are great crowds, but too cold, and lots of closures for refurb. We are tentatively planning for MAY - what are your thoughts? What's great about it? What's bad about it? Would you pick a different month? Am I wrong about some of my thoughts above? And...can I live with myself if I don't go back at Christmas? lol

Adventure Awaits Guests at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort This Summer

disneylandnews.com/ - Wed, 2017-05-17 22:01
Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel Invite Guests to Extend their Stays for the Ultimate Family-Friendly Vacation Experience

ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 17, 2017)–Guests visiting the Disneyland Resort this summer will be thrilled to discover the new, action-packed attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT!, at Disney California Adventure Park. For those looking to extend their epic theme park adventures, the Disneyland Resort offers three on-property hotels with a variety of accommodations plus family-friendly amenities and activities for the ultimate, multi-day vacation experience.

Guests looking to stay in the middle of the magic have distinct choices at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort. The Disneyland Hotel, a modern classic, is infused with Disney’s nostalgic heritage at every turn. The coastal-cool Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel overlooks Disney California Adventure with a view of the iconic Paradise Pier section of the park. And the Arts & Crafts-designed Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a luxurious retreat. Currently undergoing a hotel-wide renovation, Disney’s Grand Californian will unveil the new pool area by Memorial Day weekend, followed by redesigned guest rooms, a refreshed lobby and the concierge-level Craftsman Club by the end of 2017—completing the most extensive refurbishment since the hotel’s 2001 opening.

“While each resort hotel offers something unique for guests, what remains consistent is Disney’s exceptional guest service, famed hospitality and of course, magic,” said Elliot Mills, vice president, Hotel Operations, at the Disneyland Resort. “At our three hotels, you are just  footsteps from everything, making it easy to play at both theme parks and to explore Downtown Disney. When you extend your stay at the Disneyland Resort, you are sure to create unforgettable memories.”

For a limited time, a special hotel offer is available for guests looking to stay in the middle of the magic. Guests may save up to 20 percent on premium rooms for select nights at Disney’s Grand Californian or the Disneyland Hotel, for travel from now through June 15, 2017, if booked by June 15.*

Superb Disney Dining and New Experiences

The Hotels of the Disneyland Resort offer delicious dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests will find special character dining experiences at each hotel:

  • Surf’s Up! Breakfast with Mickey & Friends in Disney’s PCH Grill at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel
  • Chip ‘n Dale Critter Breakfast in Storytellers Cafe at Disney’s Grand Californian
  • Goofy’s Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel buzzes with character encounters throughout the day, including the new Disney Dinnertime Magic with Chef

Also at the Disneyland Hotel, the vintage Hollywood-inspired Steakhouse 55 recently developed a new menu filled with indulgent breakfast items—and creative cocktails.

In the afternoons, guests will experience Classic Afternoon Tea at Steakhouse 55. The mid-day tea service offers sweets, savories and an exquisite selection of specialty teas. At Disney’s Grand Californian’s signature restaurant, Napa Rose, Disney’s expert staff of sommeliers have curated a special menu during the new Napa Rose Food and Wine Pairing Experience. Offered on weekend afternoons, guests will indulge in hand-selected wine tastings in the lounge.

For delicious dinners in a casual setting, guests will enjoy meals at Disney’s PCH Grill at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and Storytellers Café at Disney’s Grand Californian. Fine dining is available at the award-winning Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian and at Steakhouse 55 in the Disneyland Hotel.

Ideal Daytime Activities

Guests will enjoy sunny summer days at any of the distinct pools found at the on-property hotels. The Disneyland Hotel pool and water play area feature waterslides reminiscent of the original Mark I Monorail trains from Disneyland Park in the early ‘60s. The boardwalk-inspired, rooftop pool at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel features a 186-foot slide resembling a classic, beachside roller coaster.

At Disney’s Grand Californian, the recently refreshed pool deck includes new hardscape reinforcing the resort’s Craftsman design. A variety of natural stones were chosen to create a warm and welcoming environment at each pool. The 90-foot-long Redwood Creek waterslide curves around a giant Redwood tree stump, inviting guests to come and splash into the Redwood Pool.

The pools at each of the hotels come to life during energetic afternoon pool parties. These parties throughout the summer include games, music, dancing and more.

Guests who enjoy lounging by the pool may consider reserving a private, poolside cabana, available at the Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian for a half-day or full-day rental. Guests will stretch out under a shaded cabana equipped with everything they need to relax.

Special Evening Experiences

On select summer nights, guests also will enjoy movie screenings at all three hotels. During Magical Night at the Movies, guests are encouraged to kick back on beach chairs and towels to watch a Disney movie under the stars.

Guests with concierge-level reservations may take advantage of evening desserts and after- dinner beverages in the three hotels’ concierge lounges. For guests staying at the Disneyland Hotel, the E-Ticket Club is ideal for viewing the nighttime fireworks spectacular with a corresponding soundtrack piped in throughout the lounge.

Extra Magic Hour at the Theme Parks

Registered Disneyland Resort hotel guests with admission tickets may take advantage of Extra Magic Hour, which allows them access to select theme park attractions, stores, entertainment and dining locations for one full hour before the parks open to the general public (available on select mornings; theme park admission and valid hotel key card required**).

Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa Delivers New Magic with Extensive Renovations

disneylandnews.com/ - Wed, 2017-05-17 22:00
Guests Staying at the AAA Four Diamond Hotel Will Discover Reimagined Guest Rooms, Lobby, Pool and More

ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 17, 2017)–An exciting, hotel-wide refurbishment is bringing new magic to the luxurious Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at the Disneyland Resort, with completely redesigned guest rooms plus a refreshed lobby, pool areas and the concierge-level Craftsman Club. The most extensive refurbishment since the hotel’s 2001 opening will elevate the premium guest experience and bring a contemporary approach to the Arts & Crafts design style.

The renovations are currently in progress, with expected completion in the fall of 2017. Guests may already enjoy some of the updates, with many guest rooms available and the redesigned pool area ready for summer fun.

Recently named a AAA Four Diamond hotel by the Automobile Club of Southern California for the sixteenth year in a row, the 948-room Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa captures the romantic spirit of California’s Arts & Crafts movement in the early 20th century.

“Our renovation adds more luxury to this iconic Southern California hotel, while staying committed to its signature Arts & Crafts design,” said Dan Coleman, General Manager of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. “We want our guests to feel they are staying in a Disney hotel that’s distinctly situated in beautiful California. The revitalized design helps convey this feeling and allows us to continue exceeding guest expectations.”

Redesigned Guest Rooms
Every single element in the redesigned guest rooms will be new, creating a fresh sense of luxury – from floor and walls to furnishings, bedding and linens, as well as upgraded bathrooms. Upon entry, guests will notice beautiful hardwood flooring transitioning into soft, bright-toned carpeting. Linens and pillows are restyled in a bright, white palette and upgraded bathrooms include new fixtures. The room decor is a contemporary take on the Arts & Crafts style featuring all-new furniture made of natural oak, specially designed for each room, as well as California-inspired artwork created by artists and Disney Imagineers, including beautiful headboard walls with wood inlay designs featuring Chip ‘n Dale climbing orange trees! Guests with sharp eyes will catch other uniquely Disney details throughout these newly enhanced rooms.

Other Enhancements

  • Pools: The pools and surrounding areas have been redesigned with new hardscapes that reinforce the Arts and Crafts feeling of this premier Disney resort.  A variety of natural stones were chosen to create a warm and welcoming environment at each pool.
  • Lobby: The already spectacular six-story Grand Hall lobby will continue to impress guests with new, stylish furnishings to complement the existing Arts and Crafts décor.
  • The Craftsman Club: The new design for The Craftsman Club, the hotel’s concierge-level lounge, will draw inspiration from the architectural and furniture designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a visionary of the Glasgow Style of the Arts and Crafts movement. New hardwood flooring, custom-designed rugs, finely-crafted artisanal furniture and specially- commissioned art will add to the sophisticated, upscale tone of the Club.

Disney’s Grand California Hotel & Spa is the first Disney resort hotel in the world to be located inside a theme park, providing guests with an exclusive entrance to Disney California Adventure Park.

Guests staying at Disneyland Resort hotels also enjoy Extra Magic Hour, which provides early entry to select Disneyland and Disney California Adventure attractions.

Florida 2017!

intercot.com - Wed, 2017-05-17 18:57
Since our last trip in 2010 things have been busy in the Craik household, I started Medical School in 2011 and qualified in 2015, my sister (Tinker Bell-bell) started university in 2012, graduated in 2016 and has also entered the world of work. There was talk of the next Disney trip some years ago and we had thought about 2016 at first, but then real life was too busy for it to get off the ground.

We were looking at when everyone can get the time off at the same time and the end of August 2017 became a possibility as using the last Monday in August (a Public Holiday in England) I could get 2 weeks off in a row together. Only issue being at that stage that because of the way my training programme works I move hospital at the start of August so booking the time off in advance (before the rota and on calls has been agreed) seemed a lot more difficult. I checked back again this week and they advised we can fit me taking my time off then in the rota and we can go ahead a book! :D

Still need to sort out flights, accommodation, etc but hopefully things are now coming together after 7 years away! :mickey:

Disney Infinity and Oceaneers Club Band

intercot.com - Wed, 2017-05-17 17:20
Hello. I was told my someone on our recent cruise that the Oceaneers Club bands will still work on Disney Infinity, even though the game has been discontinued. I have not been able to get it to work. Apparently, before the sunset, you had to navigate through the online/multi-player menu to make it work. That is not there anymore. Is it still possible to use the band, or was I given false information?

Thanks.
