And, yes! Thank you for reminding me. SoCal residents get the two one-day tickets for the price of one. The catch being, again, that you have to use the other ticket at the other park. (And you can't use them both on the same day.) But, you can get the second day free on the one-day park-hopper as well, making it basically a two-day park-hopper for $79. In both cases, the second day expires after 30 days.
Too bad as time goes on, I'm becoming less of a morning person. ;)
Wait a minute...Tiki room? I heard they closed this! I'll have to check it out next time I go.
So it is possible to do a productive trip without having to wrap your head around FastPass -- if you show up early and do the popular-but-lower-capacity rides first (in our case, Space Mountain and Buzz). Then do the not-as-popular-and-lower capacity rides (Tea Cups, Storybook Land, Tom Sawyer Island), followed by the popular-and-high-capacity attractions (Mansion and Pirates).
And if you want to ride the train, you must board at Main Street! Don't even think about getting on elsewhere, or you'll be stuck behind tired, frustrated riders foolishly trying to use the train as an "easy" way to get back to Main Street -- even though they'll wait longer in line for the train than it would have taken them to walk.
