We're taking our six and four year old kids to Disneyland in California early July. We'll be there Saturday July 7 and Sunday July 8; unfortunately those dates can't be moved, though we could conceivably go another night the next week too if for some reason the pricing structure made that make sense. I've been to both Disneyland and Disney World, but not for a decade or more. What do we need to know? [more inside]

I'm making my annual solitary pilgrimage to Disneyland/California Adventure for 3 days in August. It's summer, and their diamond celebration is going on, so I anticipate mad crowds. I'd like to avoid eating in the park as much as possible. So what can I eat to keep me full (meals and snacks)? [more inside]

I've been trying to figure out the best way to take a side trip from Disneyland to see a Dodger game this summer, but I am at a loss. I know there's a train, but the train stops around 10pm, so that precludes night games. I can't imagine a taxi from Anaheim to Chavez Ravine would be even remotely affordable. LA Mefites, any ideas?

We're going to Disneyland tomorrow. We haven't done any advance planning. I don't have a lot of time today to devote to research, either, so I thought I'd ask if anyone can brain-dump a quick-and-dirty way to shave some time off the inevitable waiting. More detail and explicit instructions are better. [more inside]

I'm landing at LAX tomorrow (Monday) at around 4 p.m. I'm heading to a hotel very close to Disneyland in Anaheim. My plan (to save time and discomfort) is to take a cab, but I sort of realized today that Anaheim is way the hell on the other side of town from the airport. Given that the cab ride is likely to cost $100 or so, am I going to have any trouble finding a cabbie to take me all the way to Anaheim? What about the return trip, when I leave my hotel around lunchtime on Thursday? Bonus question: Will I be able to pay with a credit card? (In case you're curious, I get reimbursed for the cab ride, so comfort and speed of service is more important to me than saving some $$$ getting crammed into a shuttle bus.)

I know there are some good apps for line checking at Disneyland, but what I need are specific recommendations for some good ones. I'm not real particular but just want one that works well. Give me your best ones, and thank you!

Where should I take the kids before going to Disneyland? Our family of four, including a tween and young teen are scheduled to arrive in Anaheim on a Saturday about noon, and we are going to the park the following day. What can we do the afternoon and evening of arrival? Huntington beach? I don't want to wear anyone out the first night.

Two questions about a potential trip to Disney World: 1) Is it crazy to plan a trip to Disney World for the Saturday-Tuesday BEFORE Thanksgiving? 2) Is it vital to stay at a Disney property? Thanks!
