Wow. Just wow!

I wonder what it would cost to stay in a suite like that! Who stays in a suite like that? I would love to put that one on my bucket list!

REally enjoying your reviews. It's pretty much a done deal that we will get to go to DL in December 2013. Do you know when they announce AP discounts for December? If we could get a decent rate we could probably swing a stay at Paradise Pier, otherwise it's HoJo, which is actually pretty okay with me! I just want to book something now then stock up on Disney cards to pay off the balance (getting those with my Target Red Card to get 5% off)! When we went to WDW last month I made the mistake of putting off paying the balance until about 60 days out......which worked out okay but put some unnecessary stress on me!

Does DL offer discounts to the public like WDW does? We were lucky to get a one night room only discount, then got the free dining at WDW last month. That was huge for us and I was wondering if things like this happened in Disneyland?

Again, love all the photos of the new areas in DCA! Looks like such a cool place. I can't wait to see it in just over 50 days!
They were so lucky.....I would have loved to been with them but then I would have missed out on meeting Carrie.

It was a Tuesday, early December.....I think that's why the crowds weren't bad at that point. People had picked their spots on the sidewalks but the street area just off to the sides of center were pretty open. They did fill in quickly though.

You'll love the new DCA!!!

The penthouse suites run around $2000 a night. So celebrities and RICH people stay there!! I'd love to spend one night in one of the suites.....it would be AWESOME!!!!!!

Seems to me the AP rates on hotels are out about 3-4 mths prior.....so not nearly as early as WDW. You also won't get Free Dining offers at Disneyland. The dining program is so different (and really not a money saver) that this has never been something they've offered. In the fall they might offer a special on tickets or hotel rooms.....but the holidays are so popular, they don't really need to offer anything to get people to come....so they don't.

Great pics of the castle. Those fries at New Orleans restaurant looked yummy

How cool they got into the penthouse. Does Ally work for Disneyland? You might have said, but I forget.

It looks so awesome there!! I wonder what it would cost to stay there for a night

The fries are always good.

They were so lucky to get in....I would have loved that! The rooms average $2000 a night!

Ally is a CM at CarsLand.

Carrie definitely looks familiar to me! When I thought I had possibly seen Bridget and her sister I was not 100% certain - and I guess I may or may not have seen them in the parks. I could be wrong on that.

But now that I've seen Carrie in your picture I know I saw her at DLR somewhere! She and I were on the same PPH floor (6), but I don't think I saw her on our floor. I think I must have seen her getting on or off an elevator, or going in or out of the PPH entrance. Something like that - in transit, somewhere.

No problem.....I figured there would be a lot of interest. Not a ton of photos out there.

Is it wrong that I have a sudden urge to put big yellow buttons on my red club chairs here at home? Those pictures of the penthouse were some of the neatest (and rarest) I've seen lately. How cool it would be to stay there!

Derek and Ally were very lucky and we get the benefit of it!! I wish I had that kind of money to throw around......just one night!!!!

That'd be great! I can't remember if I gave you my number. If not, send me a pm and I'll send it to you.

I'm glad we got to meet in person! DD said sorry for not staying - the loud band was too much for her (she's noise sensitive). I'm so sorry you missed going to the suites!

I'm pretty sure I saw you as well. Since we were on the same floor, I'm sure we crossed paths at some point. Maybe we'll meet on a future trip!

Yes I do have your number!!! I believe I sent you a text to let you know I would be late getting there.

I understood about your daughter......nice setting but maybe not ideal for talking.

My feeling on the suites is~~~if I had been with them.....they may not have had the same luck as they did. As long as they had cameras to get me some pictures.......I'm a happy camper!!

What an awesome experience to share with you via pics! The Mickey Mouse Suite is probably exactly what I expected it to look like - love the bathroom sink!

It's so neat to meet other Disers Hope you two do get to meet up once in awhile since you both live in Oregon.

The pics of the Castle are so beautiful

I loved that sink too!!! I expected lots of Mickey memorabilia and trinkets. The skylight they said was pretty cool and changed colors!! I want one of those!!

I've made some great friendships on the Dis and meeting up in person has always been highlights on my trips!!
