I have no doubt Disney will still go forward with re-developing that area. My guess is they will keep the existing architecture, but cut back on some of the planned amenities expected of a four diamond resort. Either that or give that area a Disney Springs like makeover and load it up with more restaurants and do as Chris suggested with the new paradise pier tower for hotel capacity.

Because it's "The Season"....

Here's a pic I took, of 1/2 of a couple obviously getting into the spirit
of the Halloween stuff in DCA and Disneyland.

He looked great, and I thought it was very cool for this to happen.

Does anyone know if Trader Sam’s can validate your Downtown Disney parking ticket?

That would be a good idea. It is so incredibly overpriced, even by Disney standards. They have a lot of options when adding a new hotel, or some towers. I'd love to see a hotel like Mira Costa at Disney Sea. The hotel was amazing, and it looks great in the park as well.

So over Thanksgiving break, me and a few colleagues are spending a few days in SoCal, at Disneyland and in San Diego.

Obviously, while I'm at Disneyland I'll be getting all 6 credits and riding some of the biggies like Indiana Jones and Guardians of the Galaxy, and will be visiting SeaWorld, Giant Dipper and maybe Legoland while I'm in San Diego.

I must ask though. At the four parks I mentioned (the two in the Disney resort, SWSD, BP) are there any other rides that are worth riding that aren't coasters?

Thanks!
Coaster Count - 183

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

On the California Adventure side, Radiator Springs Racers is pretty freaking great, but you'll want to do single rider (which will unfortunately separate your group). Soarin' is also worth it if you haven't seen the new version of the ride film. At Disneyland you also have their "classics" which are better than Magic Kingdom's in my opinion - Haunted Mansion with its actual elevator stretch room, and Pirates of the Caribbean with its longer ride time and legitimate drops.

Based on this, I don't think Disneyland is the park for you. Have you considered Magic Mountain?

Non coaster rides
At Disneyland; Splash Mountain, Star Tours, Haunted Mansion, R.R. Cartoon Spin, Pirates - while waiting for a FP - Buzz, Nemo, Autotopia, Jungle Cruise
DCA - R. Racers, Soarin, Toy Story Midway Mania, Grizzly rapids
SeaWorld - well, besides the coasters, the rapids ride is ok, and Wild Artic is pretty dated, but ok
