Planning August tip
« on: June 20, 2015, 05:42:37 PM »

Hi, we are taking our girls aged 12 and 9 to Disneyland for the first time this August, but cant seem to find info on a few things hoping for some help:

1. What time is the parade likely to be as we want to book our meals
2. When can we book our meals, I have read different time scales on here ( will be 2 months to start on 24th)
3. Buffalo bills, we are thinking of going would be better using our plus tickets and paying the difference or trying to get a deal online? Or are we likely to get a table if we left it till we got there?
 
Think that's all for now.

Not sure on the parade times, so I'll skip that question. :)

If you're staying on site (ie. in one of the Disney hotels) then it's 60 days, if you're staying elsewhere then it's 30 days in advance that you can book your restaurant reservations.
Calling them directly is probably the quickest way to arrange those.

As for Buffalo Bills, reserving ahead of time ensures you a seat, and I assume that in August (which is basically Peak Season at DLP) it won't be as likely to find walk-on seating for that show.

Though the 2nd show is never as busy as the first.

Parade was at 17 or 17.30, but I am not so sure. You can book dinner at 18.30 and have a well deserved long rest.

Don't leave Buffalo Bill till the end. There is a very good price for the 21.30 show on ticketmaster.fr in the moment - EUR 39.
It's only to consider if you are OK with the later start.

Thanks, we are staying in Cheyenne so will book all our meals the end of next week!
Did consider the 9.30 for Buffalo bills show as I'd found that deal myself but I think it will just be to late for our youngest daughter.
So excited, just want to make sure we arrange as much as we can before hand.

21.30 is also for us too late. I search for cheaper ticket for 18.30, without success till now.

I was told that 365tickets are slightly cheaper than Disney for the 1830 BBWWS.

Will keep looking this week for deals for Buffalo Bills , but are we better off trying to get the tickets separately or pay the extra anyway?

It depends on the whole calculation. If a deal is better than voucher + payment of difference -> then better the deal.
Then you have to use the voucher anyway, have to plan when to eat with it. Not that it stays unused.

I just checked - 365 tickets are really JUST some euros cheaper than Disney. But the 21.30 show has the same price as the one at 18,30!!! And there are no dates open for booking for end of November.
21.30 show at ticketfr are much cheaper with EUR 39.
