You can only have one character slot at a time, it is to stop people booking up loads and leaving others with none. It is far from perfect but just thought that might help others

And of course character meets in the Disneyland Park don't need lineberty - just queue up and wait as normal.
Yes I think we saw that we could book up more later in the afternoon. Good idea to clarify. I'm glad it was just us and that it was only one character per phone. Of course if my phone was working with the app then we'd have had 2 characters. If you're on the ball at the right time it's a perfect system. Just a shame for those who don't know about it.

We did meet a few characters the old fashioned way by queueing up in the main park and while the wait times were fairly long at around 30 to 45 minutes it was great to be able to just get in line and know we would meet them eventually.

I can imagine having a similar debate about DLP vs WDW when we visit in May. I think it is inevitable you will compare, but do so with an open mind (if that makes sense?).
I couldnt cope with a trip anywhere in the cold. I love the heat and a roasting Florida August is perfect for me. The cold would make me miserable before Id even started! Id love to visit DLP at Halloween or Christmas but the weather puts me off.

Weve decided not to bother with that Lineberty thing at all and just queue for any characters we really want to meet in the Disneyland park. It all sounds far too stressful.

Ive made a note re Crush. No avoiding at least a jog, if we want to ride it with anything like a reasonable wait

Thanks for sharing. Really enjoyed reading this.

I think the comparisons are inevitable you are right though I hope you manage to keep an open mind.

I like the heat too, the hot sweat box of August, it feeling like it's hotter than the surface of the sun with the concrete radiating heat up. I am going to try and not say 'oh it's hot today' too many times this August as clearly I much prefer it.

I'd like to visit at party times, Halloween and Christmas looks so pretty, maybe sometime!

You will be able to meet lots of unusual characters in the main park. The studios only had 4 characters when we were there in Feb.

I think a steady jog for crush is a good idea. Well, it's more realistic and means you won't have to wait so long.

just catching up with your report as I was told by Georgia that i couldn't read it without her here as we have both enjoyed reading along together

So pleased you managed to get your card and get back in line in time for the ride, even though it looks as if you could have strolled instead of ran as the ride broke down! It does seem odd that some rides aren't available to FP in DLP. We really want to ride Crush when we go, so will head there first thing as you did.

Georgia was shocked that you missed the opportunity to meet Spiderman She is really hoping that the Marvel characters will be around when we go, as she missed out on meeting Star Lord and Groot on our last trip in WDW

Chez Remy's looks really good, we definitely want to eat here next year. The steak looks excellent. I'm glad Kate put you right about comparing DLP to WDW. It's amazing how our daughters seem to know so much better than we do as they get older isn't it? To be fair, it must be difficult not to compare the two, and we will have to be careful of the same when we go. It does look a great fun place to visit though, even if it isn't WDW.

The parade looks fun, as does the story boat ride. I hadn't heard of that one before, but will definitely want to ride it, i love the gentle rides too

AAARRGGHH to the family who pushed in front at the last minute. I know Georgia wouldn't have let them do it, we do let small children in front of us but not with attached adults and the cursed held-up-high-cameras! If they want a good spot, they should get there earlier.

Georgia is frustrated that she hasn't seen Kate's haul (spoiler though, we have just read day 5, and she is very happy now )

It's nice to think you have both enjoyed reading the report.

I was really kicking myself when I realised I'd left the card on the machine in the shop. Those few minutes seem vital, but in the end we all had to wait when Crush went down. It's such a slow loading ride. I don't feel it's not worth the 90 plus minute wait times we've seen. Definitely a good idea to aim for this at rope drop, that's for sure.

Sorry for not bothering with Spider-Man I'm sure the Spider-Man meet is great fun but we figured there was other stuff we'd rather do

Chez Remy was cute and I'm glad we did this meal. The theming in there was great and it was all so cute, plus the food was scrummy. I loved the steak. We both enjoyed the Ratatouille. A few weeks after we got home Kate had to make Ratatouille at school and she did a great job, so she was pretty pleased to be able to recreate part of the meal

The parade was great and it was lovely to sit and watch it go by. We had fun eating our sweets (not that we really needed more food) and watching the floats go past.

Phew, I recovered my trip report with the haul photos at the end of the last day!
