You can only book up to two weeks ahead. I'm hoping to snag some good reservations times tonight at midnight as that will be the start of my two week window.
It was pretty easy. I bought my flex pass on Monday, and grabbed reservations for this coming Friday and Saturday for the Cantina.
^ We'll be at Disneyland first on Monday/9th, then DCA Tuesday/10th, with park hopping as needed. Have a four day hopper, but won't do the Magic Morning in DL until Thurs/12th. Then DCA FridayThe13th (eep?) to finish off.

Great! If I spot you, I’ll make sure to say a quick “hi”! We will be at Knott’s on Sept 7.

Disneyland is removing the ‘french fry’ rocks in front of Tomorrowland

Disneyland has begun the slow process of removing the colorful rocks that have decorated the entrance to Tomorrowland for more than two decades, according to Disney officials.
Visitors began noticing construction walls up around the area Thursday morning, Aug. 15, and speculating about the removal, which has been planned as part of a general campaign to widen walkways and improve pedestrian access around the park. It will also include cutting down the curb to make it easier for strollers and scooters.
“The Tomorrowland rocks are starting to be removed nearest Disneyland’s Central Hub,” the MiceChat.com blog posted on social media, citing members of the construction crew. “The marquee has already been removed. The other side won’t be started for awhile, so the whole process could take months to complete.”
The manufactured rocks, which some wags have dubbed the “french fry rocks,” were added during the 1998 remodel of Tomorrowland, according to Todd Regan, who runs MiceChat.com under the pen name of Dusty Sage.
While decorative, many visitors complained that they limited walk space during peak periods such as during and after fireworks shows. The removal is part of a larger “Project Stardust” effort to widen walkways throughout the park.
“Hoping that this project is for the removal of the Eisner-era ‘98 disaster of a Tomorrowland entrance rocks!” UC Irvine student and annual passholder Gregory Conley posted on Facebook, along with a photo of the construction walls.
Disney officials confirmed that the rocks are in the process of being removed along the north side of the Tomorrowland entrance, and the marquee sign that says “Tomorrowland” has already been removed. The remainder of the rocks will be taken out in a slow process over the coming months, officials said.

Should hopefully be at the park this Thursday. Been a long time ago, but had a few questions:
(1) Going to be rolling solo and plan to get there late morning and stay through early evening - figure ~9-10 hours. Given there are single rider lines on some of the rides and I don't feel the need to do everything, assuming the $$$ for MaxPass won't be worth it? Must rides for me with a re-ride on maybe 1-2 of them are (feel free to recommend others): Thunder Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Hyperspace Mountain (likely 2X), Indiana Jones, Jungle Cruise, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Millennium Falcon Smuggler's Run, Peter Pan, Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain.
(2) What's the intensity of the Millennium Falcon Smuggler's Run experience? I'm ok on pretty much all rides, but certain simulators with sustained times of gravitational pull / rotation I don't do well on - good example is Mission Space at Epcot.
(3) Taking an Uber there. If I buy my ticket on the app in advance, is entrance to the park pretty quick and seamless?
