Hi!! I am Sarah, and I am new to both sparkpeople and this group! My husband and I have annual passes and go once or twice a week on average. I love being active all day in such a fun place.
I worked there for a while, and even after two years there the magic is the same!

Hey everyone... I'm new to the group. I go to Disneyland all the time (usually about once a week). I don't really ride a lot of rides anymore, but spend most of my time there watching the bands at Tomorrowland Terrace or the dancers at Carnation Plaza. (One of these days, I'll get comfortable enough to get out there and swing dance, too - maybe just one more series of classes, lol.) And sometimes I go just to get some exercise in a nice place.

It's no use going back to yesterday because I was a different person then.

Hey! I'm Ashley. I'm fairly new to the team.
My boyfriend took me to Disneyland for my first time February 2008. It was our first real vacation together, 2 year Anniversary and our Valentines day all in one. It was awesome. I had such an amazing time. It really is the happiest place on earth...and I'm such a little kid. I didn't want to leave. Everday since we got back, I tell my boyfriend that I want to go back. So...we are planning on going back again in 2010 about the same time, in February or March. I'm so excited.

7 Days until:  Until Baby is due!

Not a problem about team inactivity - This is all so new to me, it will be nice to ease into it. Thanks for the encouragement about fitting into my Eyeore shirt - Maybe I'll hang it front & center in my closet as a visual reminder of what I want to accomplish!

Welcome! I love to just walk around too! When you go all the time there's no need to rush and try to get on rides. emoticon
It's nice you have so many special memories there. I will have a few myself, they just haven't happened yet. Lol

Good luck fitting in that Eyeore shirt! and I'm sorry but this team hasn't been very active for the past several months. I don't know what happened! Hopefully things will pick up again soon.

Hi! I'm new to SP, and I was thrilled to see a Disneyland team. My husband & I had our first kiss there, he gave me my promise ring there, and we took our honeymoon there. We have annual passports & try to go every couple of weeks - sometimes twice in one week. We usually walk to the parks from the parking garage - get those steps in before we're too tired! We love it for the atmosphere - even our young sons are content with just going to walk around. I'm glad to find like-minded people to talk to! (No one else in my family is as Disney crazy as I am.) Like some of the other members, I have an Eyeore t-shirt in a smaller size that is a motivator for losing weight. Can't wait until I fit it!

Wow! It does sound like you had a lot of fun!
I can picture you amongst the children having more fun than they are!

I just thought of something. The next time you cut through the gorgeous Grand Califronian (My absolute favorite hotel-stayed there 21 times), just after you leave it's doors but before you turn the corner to Downtown Disney, there's a door that leads to a stair case and it's usually unlocked. You could climb one floor or all six.

Congrats on the seven pounds! and keep up the fun at Disneyland!

I did not mean to disparage the Treehouse. I am just sick of getting so winded every (rare) time I attempt it, usually only when friends with ball-o-energy kids are with me in the park. But it's become a goal of mine to conquer it, my Rocky steps.

In the meantime, I'm starting smaller and having a lot of fun. Two weeks ago, I went to the park a little after opening before it got too crowded and started walking from the Mickey & Friends parking structure and didn't stop for 90 minutes, with the exception of the turnstile and brief drinking fountain visits.

Though I know I walk miles and miles on big park days, this was my first time trying not to stop, so I tried to see some ways I could make a game of it, like getting a Fastpass and forcing myself to keep walking until the window opened up (again, it was the morning, so that was only about 45 minutes), or visiting 10 different drinking fountains, or counting 10 Ed Hardy shirts worn by guests.

I had discreet headphones in so I could listen to music if the area music wasn't pumping me up enough. I would switch it up to be land-specific, which was fun and motivating. I kept trying to do the stairs inside Sleeping Beauty Castle, but every time I came close to the entrance, there were people in front of me, and I made it my goal to keep amending my course to never slow down, even if it meant improvising and back-tracking (nor did I want my "experiment" to hinder others more traditional enjoyment of the park). I saw a lot of details I hadn't noticed before and visited some corners of the park that I rarely see.

At 10am, I headed over to California Adventure with my sights set on frolicking on the rope bridges of the Redwood Creek Challenge trail while everyone else ran to their favorite E-Ticket. I was very disappointed to find it didn't open until 10:30, by which time I knew I would have more company, and I didn't want to walk for another 30 minutes.

I wandered over to Bug's Land for some reason and started playing in the arcing water fountains that spurt out from the oversize garden hose in Flik's Fun Fair, under the shade of the giant clovers. This started tentatively and slowly, and then became a ton of fun. I pretended it was one of those laser-beam security fields that Catherine Zeta-Jones would wriggle through in the movies and kept jumping, twisting and contorting to avoid getting wet, which I eventually failed at, but never stopped laughing. I must have spent ten minutes or so hopping around there, and then discovered other parts of the farm (which I sorely miss) and the water irrigation maze, before buying some water, a juicy green apple and heading back to the Challenge Trail.

By this time, I definitely was not alone, but it was still pretty quiet and I managed to climb the Eagle's Ascent spiral net-staircase as the last big challenge of the morning. The rest was all about fun, checking out the view, taking pics, chomping on my apple (probably not allowed in there, wasn't sure) and sproinging back and forth across those wonderful cargo net bridges, "He's a Pirate" theme playing on my iPod. I feel like a lithe acrobat when I do that, and it's maybe my favorite physical activity. Plus everyone else is having such a great time, too, smiles everywhere.

By that time I was bushed, and I never made it to the canoes. I cut through the gorgeous Grand Californian, resting on a plump chair for a bit, and then went to the AMC to gorge on some movies. Coincidentally, it seemed, they had just changed their concession signage to include calorie counts, so I ended up eating an entire small bag of popcorn for 270 calories and feeling pretty good about it, knowing exactly how much I was eating and that it was reasonable and after a great workout.

I went back the next weekend for a much less triumphant version of similar events, but still got the incredible buzz of revving up my heartbeat by bounding across the nets and getting a decent walk in (30 minutes this time).

I'm going to keep trying to incorporate the Disneyland Resort into my fitness life whenever I can. I still haven't tried the canoes (wish they opened earlier), nor that darned not-evil treehouse in quite a while.

I've lost seven pounds in three weeks, which is a lot slower than all the other crash things I have tried before, but they feel more earned because of it.

Recording all my food and coming back to this site on a daily basis has really been crucial in keeping my eyes on the prize. Thanks to everyone here who makes this a welcoming and supportive space. And thanks, Walt, for starting a place that continues to surprise me with the ways it can enrich my life.

Welcome to the team! Yeah, Tarzan's Treehouse (not evil!) has a lot of stairs and the canoes are a great workout for your arms! Being a guy, it might be easier for you but it killed me.
The only other thing I can think of is the ESPN Zone.
you have to pay, but there's bowling, boxing, basket ball hoops, and if your with someone else there's air hockey.

Big Disneyland guy, new to Spark.

I'm trying to incorporate Disneyland into my fitness routine, as I am fortunate to live close by and have an AP.

In addition to long-walks, I use to try to work the Redwood Creek trail into my short-lived attempts at working out there. I love making a fool of myself on those rope bridges.

Any other ideas or tips? I've never done the canoes before, but that seems promising. That evil vertical treehouse?

Welcome to the team Legallytink. And welcome back Becsta. I too have been out of action for a while. But hopefully now I'm back. I've been doing well with eating right and exercising (still can't bust out of the 170's though - but for my height, that's not too bad). I just bought an annual swim pass to the community pool, so I have been swimming a few times a week. I've just been so busy with work and every crazy thing that happens with life, that I don't have a lot of extra time.

Hi everyone,

I'm technically not a "new" member, but I have been AWOL for quite some time. If anyone remembers me, I've now graduated and I'm working as a middle school teacher (6th grade) which is very full on work, but rewarding too. They always say the first year of teaching is the hardest.

I've finally got my own place and no longer have to put up with annoying housemates, and I just got the internet hooked up at my place and I decided that I would get back on sparkpeople and give a healthy life another go.

So...here I am, for the millionth time, climbing back up onto the wagon...here's hoping I can do it this time.

Bec xx

Hi Everyone

I can't believe there is a Disney page, I think there is a Spark team for just about everything. I only joined yesterday, as you can probably tell from my profile I love Disney, I am currently wearing a Tink tshirt I just bought to motivate me to exercise.
I am english and going to LA in May ..... Disney here I come! I am looking forward to eating and exercise and have really enjoyed my first day but think motivation is going to be the key with me to really stick at it so if anyone is looking for a buddy just have a look on my page x x

One of the changes they are making it into California of the 1920s - the way Walt himself saw it when he came out. It should fit in good with the Hollywood that's already there, but other lands will have to be changed.

I keep on top of changes by following the resort updates posted on MousePlanet.com - www.mouseplanet.com/articles.php?art

It was great - really brought up some emotions in me. You learned about the parts of Disneyland that Walt had a hand in. It confirmed some rumors I had heard and also taught me some new things.

Best part of the tour: seeing the lobby of Club 33 - we couldn't go upstairs, but we got in the door and saw the artwork and famous elevator Walt built for his daughter. Also, lunch was provided and because me and another guy were taking the tour on our own, we got to sit with the tour guide and ask him questions long after everyone else had finished eating. He gave us some insight into why California Adventure hasn't drawn the crowds and told us about how they are planning to remodel it.

Worth the $50.

I'm new! I am here because I do love Disneyland. I went a few times during high school, then on my honeymoon, and then with the kids a couple of times... I even went by myself last time I was down there - took the "Walk in Walt's Footsteps Tour" which was awesome.

Glad to find other members who love it, too - and I hope the next time I go will be a much smaller person!

I just wanted to send a warm Disney welcome to all the new members that I haven't had a chance to welcome yet! If you haven't done so already, pop on in and tell us a little bit about yourself. Can't wait to meet you all!
