37 Tips to Maximize Your Time at Disneyland

Maximize Your Time at Disneyland

Hoppin’ Good News: We’re selling tickets to the Disneyland Resort! Take a look at our discounts on Disneyland tickets, including Park Hoppers for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Ribbit!

As a SoCal frog, Disneyland was my second home. Trips to the park were as routine as visiting the grocery store. I definitely put my experience to good use when coming up with tips and tricks to help visitors save time and money. Knowing that the Happiest Place on Earth can be also one of the busiest places on Earth, it's helpful to have some strategies in play when you hit the parks. That's what this post will provide — a list of tips that will help you maximize your time at Disneyland (which may also work with many other theme parks too)!

Hop into Our 37 Tips to Maximize Your Time at Disneyland

1. Buy tickets online. 

When you buy tickets in advance, you'll go straight through to the entrance and won't have to spend any time in ticket booth lines, which can save you an hour on a busy day! If you purchase a 3-day ticket or longer, you'll be eligible for Magic Morning. With Magic Morning, you can enjoy one day of early admission to Disneyland Park usually on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday.

2. Pick the best times to visit. 

While it's always a good time to visit Disneyland, there are times during the year that are better than others. Holidays, school schedules and annual passholders have a big impact on Disneyland's schedule. Use this guide to determine the best time to visit Disneyland.

3. Stay on property. 

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Disney's Grand Californian

For the most immersive Disneyland experience, stay on property. The three onsite hotels—Disneyland Hotel, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel are creatively themed with great Disney touches. You will enjoy the Extra Magic Hour for every day of your stay at an onsite property. The Extra Magic Hour benefit gives you one-hour early access to either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, which can be absolutely critical to reducing your waits on the most popular attractions (talkin' about you, Radiator Springs Racers). All resort guests can also use the dedicated resort entrance to Disney California Adventure from Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Here are more benefits to staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel.

4. If you can't stay on property, at least stay close by.

Some of the offsite hotels near Disneyland are actually closer than the resort hotels and less than a 5-minute walk to the Esplanade that connects the entrances of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure. If you stay close by, you won't have to pay to park at Disneyland and you won't lose any time in the parking garage. There are other benefits of staying at hotels near Disneyland too! There are also hotels that are a short walk to the free parking lot shuttles. (Psst! Psst! We can save you $$$ if you book your hotel through Undercover Tourist!)

5. Ease your way through the security line. 

The best way to get through the security line quickly is to be prepared. Make sure all of your bags are out and open for the cast member to peek into. Have keys, cell phone, coins and any metal devices ready to be passed to the guard at the security scanners. Have something that you know will buzz, such as a belt? Take it off and shove it into a bag for a moment.

6. Get to the parks before they open.

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Mickey and Guest

We say this over and over again, but it's true—the very shortest waits of the day are in the first hours of a park's opening. When you arrive at the park before it opens, you will be one of the very first people inside the parks.

7. Snag a locker.

Lockers can be a lifesaver. It's smart to travel light in the parks, but you want to bring sweatshirts, jackets and cameras. Make renting a locker your first priority of the day. This eliminates the need to haul off your gear around yet not out of the way for a quick stop for more sunscreen and such.

8. Download the Disneyland Moble App.

Life. Save. Er. Download the Disneyland Mobile app before you arrive. Wait times, show listings, park maps, restaurant menus and so much more. If you buy your park tickets with the app, you only need to show your barcode at the gate for admission when you first arrive at the park! Having the Disneyland Mobile app is necessary for using MaxPass.

9. Make use of Fastpass.

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Indiana Jones Fastpass

The Fastpass system is one of the best ways to maximize your time at Disneyland. In case you're not familiar with the system — select attractions in both parks allow you to insert your park ticket and get a pass that gives you a return time to the specified attraction. Hop back through the Fastpass Return line for a minimal wait.

There are a few fine points worth mentioning. You can only use the Fastpass during the specified one-hour return time window. You'll grab your new Fastpass after a waiting period once the return time window opens for the current pass you are holding or two hours have passed since you obtained your most recent Fastpass. The earlier you arrive at an attraction, the earlier in the day the Fastpass return time will be. Finally, many attractions do run out of Fastpasses, so don't count on Fastpasses to be available at the most popular attractions later in the day — especially at Disney California Adventure.

Disneyland Park Fastpass Attractions

  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Indiana Jones Adventure
  • Matterhorn Bobsleds
  • Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin
  • Space Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • Star Tours — The Adventures Continue
  • "it's a small world" Holiday (only during holiday time)

Disney California Adventure Fastpass Attractions

  • California Screamin'
  • Goofy's Sky School
  • Grizzly River Run
  • Guardians of the Galaxy—Misson: BREAKOUT!
  • Radiator Springs Racers
  • Soarin' Around the World
  • Toy Story Midway Mania!
  • World of Color

10. Use MaxPass to obtain Fastpasses and use PhotoPass

The ultimate way to maximize your time at Disneyland comes with a small price tag. Disneyland MaxPass is an optional add-on service that costs $10 per day per person. It allows users to make Fastpass reservations from their smartphones. That means that the second you walk in the front gate, you can reserve a Fastpass for Radiator Springs Racers instead of getting in a long line and waiting to obtain a pass. You can get a jump on other Fastpass users. You can usually reserve earlier return times than other Fastpass users and make your reservations wherever you are for either park (if park hopping) once you have entered a park for the day. If you plan to use PhotoPass, MaxPass will save money with included unlimited photo downloads compared to purchasing each picture individually.

11. Take advantage of Extra Magic Morning and Extra Magic Hours. 

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Disneyland Partners Statue

The only way you benefit from the Extra Magic Morning or Extra Magic Hours (EMH) is if you actually show up early for them. Both allow one-hour early admission into the parks, a huge jump on the rest of the touring population. You want to get to the park at least a half hour before the extra hour begins. Otherwise, you might find yourself in a long line of not-quite-early-enough risers who are also waiting to get into the park! Some rides now distribute Fastpasses during EMH and Magic Morning, but availability is not guaranteed.

12. If you are an early bird not staying on site, start the day in the park not hosting Extra Magic Hours. 

Even if you arrive ahead of park opening, you'll still find extra long lines from those early EMHers who weren't quite early enough. You're better off heading to the opposite park.

13. If you aren't staying on site and want to experience Radiator Springs Racers first thing, head to Disney California Adventure on a non-EMH day. 

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Radiator Springs Racers

The advice above is especially true if you're set on riding Radiator Springs Racers first thing (you won't be alone). On days with Extra Magic Hours at Disney California Adventure, the park will already have plenty of guests who are in line for the attraction or its Fastpass machine by the time you actually make it inside. You can pick up your Radiator Springs Racers Fastpasses next to It's Tough to Be over in "a bug's land" not Cars Land. You'll want to head that way first thing if you plan to use traditional Fastpass Radiator Springs Racers (or book your first ride from anywhere if using MaxPass). Note that Fastpass is now sometimes available during EMH, so EMHers will line up for the machine ahead of the official park opening and snag all the early return times. Hop Tip: The ride’s line moves fastest in the first hour of park opening because there are fewer Fastpass users slowing down the standby line. If you want to do this attraction more than once in your day, grab your Radiator Springs Racers Fastpass tickets then head to the attraction and hop in Single Rider (all single riders must be 7 and up).

 

14. Use Rider Switch if you have young children who do not meet the height requirements.

If you have tadpoles that are not tall enough to ride (or don’t want to ride), go to the entrance of the ride with the entire party and get a Rider Switch return window. One parent can supervise the tadpole(s) while the rest of the party rides, then once the riders return the supervising parent can have a turn to ride while skipping the line. The person using Rider Switch can usually bring up to two people with them. You can also use Rider Switch with Fastpass.

15. Only have one person in your party get Fastpasses or schedule MaxPass Fastpasses.

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Disneyland Haunted Mansion Fastpass

It's much easier for one person to be your appointed Fastpass "runner," or manager. I'm the runner in our family and hold onto all of our reminders. When using MaxPass, I also manage the whole family and make all our Fastpass reservations to make sure we all have the same return window.

16. Park Hop.

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Disney California Adventure Entrance

It's much easier to hop at Disneyland than it is at Disney World. Both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure are just a short hop, skip and a jump away from each other. With the entrances maybe a minute walk apart, park hopping can be an effective way to maximize your time at Disneyland. Disney California Adventure park normally closes before Disneyland, so when you park hop, you can head to the later park when the first one closes. Here are more tips on choosing the best Disneyland ticket.

17. Have a plan and prioritize attractions.

You want to visit the attractions with the longest waits (and no access to Fastpass) when they have with the lowest waits (at park opening and closing). If you've got one day for each of the parks, follow our 1-day Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure park plans.

18. Saving time in the Dole Whip line.

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Dole Whip

Securing this delightful dessert with the massive following takes some strategy. Lines can be long during the day, so consider indulging in your Dole Whip when the stand opens. If you're craving it as an afternoon snack, the line inside the Enchanted Tiki Room waiting area is usually shorter than the one outside in Adventureland.

19. Buy your souvenirs ahead of time.

Yes, who doesn't want a Disneyland hat, shirt, mug, pin, Tsum Tsum, framed artwork and all the other tempting Disney trinkets?  We all want a little something special from the parks—Disney Dress Shop Dresses OMG—but we like to buy a few souvenirs online to give to Tad and Lily ahead of the trip. This saves us time spent in the shops but also money ... which we'll use on more dresses.

20. Wait until the end of the evening to shop.

If you're looking to maximize your time at Disneyland's shows, attractions and parades, consider saving your shopping until the park closes. The shops are open an hour after the park closes. Also, World of Disney in Downtown Disney is open one hour after Disneyland closes.

21. Save the shows for later in the day.

The parks are least busy the first few hours of the day. You don't want to find yourself in a 30-minute show when Peter Pan's Flight and Dumbo will see their lowest waits of the day!

22. Make use of the Single Rider Line.

Single Rider, which can be even faster than using Fastpass, is a great way to maximize your time at Disneyland. If you don't mind splitting your group on the actual ride, you can experience the following attractions at super low waits on select attractions.

Disneyland Single Rider Attractions:

  • Indiana Jones Adventure
  • Matterhorn Bobsleds
  • Space Mountain
  • Splash Mountain

Disney California Adventure Single Rider Attractions:

  • Radiator Springs Racers
  • California Screamin'
  • Goofy's Sky School
  • Grizzly River Run

23. Know when and where to find your favorite characters.

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Disneyland Cruella de Vil

While a handful of Disney characters have their own dedicated meet-and-greet stations, most of them are listed on the official site with published times. However, with the right strategies, you may very well land that meeting with favorites such as Peter Pan, Mulan, Oswalt the Lucky Rabbit or Moana. Pick up the entertainment guide when you enter the park for some character suggestions, and the Disneyland Mobile App offers the locations of all the characters. Also, character-helping cast members — usually in red vests and hanging out with the characters — will let you know if and when you can catch your favorite. Check out our tips on meeting your favorite Disneyland character!

24. Cozy up to your favorite characters at breakfast. 

Maximize your time at Disneyland - character breakfastA character meal is a great way to get up close and personal with a bunch of your favorite characters all at once. To really maximize your time at Disneyland, schedule a breakfast before the park opens. Goofy's Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel and the Plaza Inn inside Disneyland Park offer the largest selection of characters.

25. Have a plan for a lost child.

It's easy to get distracted in a theme park, for kids and adults as well. There are lots of people and lots to see. On more than one occasion, we've stopped to shoot off a quick text message, looked up, and couldn't see the tadpoles among the sea of guests. Make sure you have a plan in place in case someone gets separated from your group. Here are top 10 don'ts for getting lost in the theme park.

26. Pack your own snacks and water.

You'll save time, money and meltdowns by packing your own snacks and water (just no glass bottles).

27. Make dining reservations.

Knowing when and where you're going to eat can be a timesaver. By eliminating the time to consider your options, hopping right to your restaurant really speeds up your day. Visit the Disneyland website or the Disneyland Mobile App to see your options and reserve. Our two favorite spots are the Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square and Carthay Circle Restaurant on Buena Vista Street.

28. Eat during off-peak hours.

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Disneyland Yeti Popcorn

If you can't secure a reservation or would rather dine at a quick-service location, you'll save time waiting in line and finding a place to sit if you dine during the off-peak hours. This is from 10:30 a.m to noon and then 3 p.m to 5 p.m. Here are some of our Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure quick-service favorites.

29. Dine on the move. 

You can save some time by dining on Disneyland eats that can be enjoyed on the move. Turkey legs, corn dogs, meat skewers, chili and Frito bag (firefly) and chili cone queso (in Cars Land) are all compact enough to be munched on while you're moving.

30. Bring your own lunch.

If you really want to save time and money, you bring your own lunch. Think picnic items, such as sandwiches, raw veggies and fresh fruits. You may even bring a full picnic and store it a locker outside the park near the Picnic Area.

31. Pack the essentials.

Don't forget sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, cell phone cords and chargers (MaxPass does wear down phone batteryand bandaids etc. It doesn't rain all that much in Southern California, but if you don't want to get wet on the water rides or plan on being in the front row at World of Color, you should bring your own poncho. You'll save time and money when you need them. Speaking of getting wet at Disneyland, we have a post with 8 essential rainy day at Disneyland tips!

32. Know when the different park areas close.

Maximize your time at Disneyland - Toontown

Mickey's Toontown — where you'll find Mickey, Minnie, other characters and more family rides — sometimes opens one hour after the regular park opening time and closes earlier than the rest of the park. Over at Disney California Adventure, many Paradise Pier attractions (basically everything except Goofy's Sky School) close prior to World of Color performances.

33. Plan meals around parade and show waits.

Choosing a great spot for Fantasmic!, World of Color of the fireworks is a rite of passage in our family. We make the most of this time waiting for the show to start by making it "dinner time" as well. We find our ideal viewing location, and then one family member sets out for burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken from Plaza Inn or other grab-and-go type foods for the rest of the family. We eat sitting down while we wait for the show to start!

34. See the second show.

During the busiest times of year, there are often two showings of the parades and Fantasmic! and multiple showings of World of Color. The later you stay, the less time you need to stake out a viewing location for these shows.

35. Grab a Paper Fastpass for World of Color or Fantasmic!

The Fastpasses at World of Color and Fantasmic! are not available through MaxPass and are not connected to the rest of the system, so you can grab these Fastpasses without worrying that they will affect your ability to obtain ride Fastpasses. Know that you will not get to choose your seating area or show time (if there is more than one). The Fastpasses are distributed sequentially by show time and viewing area. The World of Color Fastpass kiosks are located near The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure. Fantasmic! Fastpasses are distributed near Frontier Landing.

36. Save any of the long wait attractions you missed in the morning for the end of the night. 

Wait times drop off in the last couple of hours of park operation, which makes this a perfect time to hop in line at Indiana Jones Adventure, Peter Pan's Flight or Space Mountain.

37. Make sure you are in a ride line when the park closes.

Once you're in a line, you will get to ride even if it is already past park closing time.

Definitely not Memorial day, but wondering that Tue or Wed 29th or 30th? Max Pass is a must. But, do you know how grad night works, and advice in a workaround? Its 2 single moms and three 10yo boys.

Hi Amy,

According to our Crowd Calendar, it looks like the 29th and 30th are about the same in terms of crowds, so pick the day that works best for you! Grad Nites grants attending grads special access to Disney California Adventure after hours. The event also gives grads daytime tickets (certain packages) to both parks. We suggest hitting Disney California Park at rope drop then heading over to Disneyland Park once crowds pick up at DCA. Have a great trip!

Hi! Thanks for all the great tips! It is overwhelming to navigate everything, so your posts help greatly! I am traveling single mom style with my two boys 12 & almost-7 the 3rd week of April. We have a week vacation and think we will enjoy 4 days at the parks. We are staying at the Courtyard by Marriott Anaheim theme park entrance, so hope this will help with ease of access, and taking breaks midday as needed. It seems like we'll get the most out of our time if we plan ahead for shows, get the FASTPASS & MAXPASS, go early in morning, and plan for our desired rides first thing in morning and any shows at end of day. Do you have any advice on how to best enjoy the park with only one parent and with two kids of such different ages? Many thanks!

Hi Cristine,

Great idea to enjoy 4 days at the parks! You'll definitely enjoy the convenient location from your hotel to the parks. Don't be afraid to take pool and nap breaks! You might also find our Disneyland park plans helpful in prioritizing your days in the parks. Since your tadpoles (kids) are such different ages, you might find this post on Disneyland height requirements and Rider Switch to be useful. While having a plan is great and recommended, we find it makes things easiest when you're flexible with changes to the plan. Most of all, just enjoy yourself! You're going to the Happiest Place in the World after all!

I'm just wondering about the one day where we do not want to purchase MaxPass. (One day we are entering the park with no intention of rides...so don't need the fast pass feature. This day, we're doing character breakfast and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!!) On that day, would it work for only ONE of us to purchase MaxPass? (Cuz the only thing we want is the benefit of photo pass that day). And then whenever we get photos taken, we just scan the one person's code?? Just trying to figure out if there is a way to get the benefits of photo pass without every person in our party purchasing MP for one day??

Oh, sorry we misunderstood your question! Yes, absolutely. One person can purchase MaxPass in order to get PhotoPass abilities for the day. Just be sure to scan that person's code wherever you get photos taken in order to link them to your account. Great question :)

Reply
Mar 7, 2018 at 12:30 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Lorena,

It an be challenging to get both in! It all depends on show times and crowd levels that day. The FASTPASSes for Fantasmic! run out the fastest, so get those first thing in the morning. If you do no get one, arrive early for a standby location. Arrive early even if you have a FASTPASS since they do pack people in for the show. The World of Color FASTPASSes take longer to distribute, and if there is a second show that night, it is definitely the least crowded. You also don’t necessarily need to be right in front for World of Color; the first row can get wet from the spray, and the water sprays really high.

Oh, my! If possible, we would recommend purchasing a Park Hopper ticket to experience the magic of both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure in one day. However, if you have to choose JUST ONE, we'd go with Disneyland Park for your very first trip to experience all of the classic fun and attractions.

Oh my goodness! That sounds like it will be a super fun trip. Truly, every experience and attraction at Disneyland is wonderful for families of all ages. But it sounds like your group may enjoy the more exciting rides such as Splash Mountain, Space Mountain and Matterhorn Bobsleds. Be sure to visit Cars Land as well!

I am surprising my husband with a 2 day anniversary trip at the beginning of May. Already have tickets, lodging, and dinner with Goofy reserved. Neither of us have been there in over a decade. What should we know, what should we plan, and what should we pack? I am thinking one day at each park as I did not go for park hoppers.

What does this statement mean on Disney's website: "Be aware that pre-purchased theme park tickets do not guarantee entry on any given day. Please consider arriving early to begin your magical experience!" Do they limit the number of park visitors each day and how can you plan a vacation there if they do? Thank you!

Hi Krista,

The parks do have a capacity limit and when they reach them, they cannot let any more guests in, unfortunately. When visiting during peak times (such as the holidays), it's wise to get there early so you can get inside before they reach capacity!

Hey we are going to Disney land at the end of January. We are from Canada and wanted to do 2 says but the Canada pass might make it the same price to do 3 days. (We might only use 2). I had a couple questions. We are bringing our daughter who will be 3 and a half when we are there. Any tips on what rides are best for a girl that age and which park is better or if a park hopping pass would be worth it for her if she gets bored at one. Thanks for the help. I’m sure you have a section on ages and what not but I haven’t got that far. Thanks again.

Hi James,

Hop over to this post for some ideas on what rides would be best for her. It's geared towards babies, but the rides listed are great for toddler age, as well. This post also contains height requirements for Disneyland attractions, which can be helpful for you, as well. If you're going to be at the parks for 3 days, you might consider a Park Hopper. It's very easy to hop between the two parks, so if she ends up having a favorite ride or show, it'd be simple to go to that particular park.

Thank you for all the tips. We are struggling with locking down our dates to go in 2018 and am hoping for advise. We are looking at the Middle of March, the week after Easter or the Middle of April. I'm worried about the crowds and having to stand in lines as it's busier times, I'm disabled. However, we are a family of 6 and going in the slower time is quit an increase in price. We are torn with deciding if the price is worth less wait time. Also with not having info for 2018 yet it's hard to see if rides will be closed. Thanks for suggestions.

Dec 5, 2017 at 2:20 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi April,

The middle of April would be your best bet as far as crowds go. The middle of March is usually spring break, which brings in more crowds, and so does Easter. Check out predicted crowds on our crowd calendar.

Hey, I am super glad to have read this post before heading to Disney this year with my kids. I could'nt have enjoyed the time in Disney without having a locker and fast pass. We did just one park per day to save money. I have one tween and a teen and could do all the FP rides without any hastle. We had about 2 hours free in the disney adventure park.

I realize this is too far ahead but does it typically close during this time every year? This is one ride none of us have done (not at WDW) and would hate to miss it.

If need be, we can switch the date a few days. Btw, your website is a wealth of information. Love it!!

I have read several places that this is an excellent time to go because the park is less busy.

Are there any attractions we should visit on the first couple days at the parks? We know we will be going over a weekend that tends to be busier. Any word on if they are having their Christmas performance in the evening yet?

Hi there,

The religious Christmas Candlelight procession will be held in front of the train station near the entrance to the park on Dec 3 and 4 this year. But it is very challenging to get see. The seats are reserved, so there is standing to the side. There is a new Holiday fireworks show that will be going on—check the calendar for the nights. The holiday parade will be running, and there is a new Holiday World of Color show too.

Hello! I'm loving your page! I'm arriving Tuesday, November 8th with my 3 girls (12,10 & 7) and staying in Anaheim area till Thursday. I'm very unsure what type of ticket to purchase. We will arrive in Anaheim around 1 pm Tuesday. Should I purchase a 2 day hopper and try to go Tuesday afternoon/evening to get in some rides/attractions and then do all day Wednesday? And will a day and a half be enough time? Lastly, character dining? Worth it, or no? It's very big in WDW, but wasn't sure about DL. Thanks so much for any advice!!

Reply
Sep 19, 2016 at 2:19 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Dina,

Thank you for the compliment! If you enjoy character dining, then you have a lot of choices. We recommend a lunch so you you can take advantage of morning time in the park, which is the least crowded. We do not recommend a character breakfast on Wednesday because you will want to arrive early at the park that day. Since you have a limited time, it might be hard to fit it all in. We recommend the Park Hopper so you can get see everything. If it saves money you can do a one-day park for Tuesday and a ParkHopper for Wednesday, but see how the cost breaks down. But if there is nighttime entertainment those days, you will enjoy seeing World of Color one night and fireworks the next. They will release the entertainment schedules in the next couple weeks, so use those to plan your day.

Found one of the best eats for the price is Smoke Jumper Cafe right next to Sorin in Cal Adventure. In there you have a great condiment bar that is you do it right you can make yourself a nice salad with condiments. They have thousand island and ranch dressing. Roasted red bell peppers, sliced peppers, sliced tomatoes and if you like pickles. You will walk out of there full and feeling good because part of your meal was salad.

Hi there! I enjoyed reading your article. I am a single mom who has been saving for 2 years to take my 2 preteen and teen boys. They and I am very excited. We are going to both DL and DCA the second week of October. I'm looking for my info and opinion on Mikey's not to scary Halloween party that will happen 2 of the 3 nights we are there. I feel like we are kinda getting the short end of the stick with park hours. The cost for 1 ticket is an additional almost $80 per person and you get about 5 more hours in DL. I'm trying to decide if purchasing those tickets in addition to the already purchased 3day park hopper passes are worth it? Candy isn't an appeal, my boys are too cool to dress up.....but I'm bummed about the loss of park time.

Reply
Aug 9, 2016 at 9:52 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Laura,

Don't worry. You can still have a great time without buying party tickets. If you are buying a three-day park hopper you can maximize your time by hopping between the parks. We recommend doing a full day at DCA one of the party days, do a full day at Disneyland on the nonparty day, and then do Disneyland in the morning of the other party day, then somewhere in the afternoon or early evening you can hop on over to California Adventure (which has a lot to offer kids your kids' ages). Except for the party times, you can just hop back and forth if you prefer one park over the other park (be sure to check DCA nighttime hours as well because they may not be open super late). The two parks are very close and a short walk apart. Also, keep in mind that if you are standing in a line when the park closes for the party, you can stay in that line until you have ridden the ride and then leave. You can watch Halloween fireworks from outside the park in a few areas on party nights. You can see some from the area between the parks, from Downtown Disney, from some hotel rooms (even offsite hotels have some great fireworks views), and the top of the Mickey and Friends parking structure. Or use the evening to go out for dinner or to swim in the hotel pool. There are video games in the ESPN Zone at Downtown Disney and movie theater at Downtown Disney.

Which Frozen show would be best to see if we are wanting to see World of Color too? Any advice? Also, how would you organize the day with those two shows as well as riding, Soarin, Radiator Springs Racers, Tower of Terror, Screamin, and Ariel's Ride? There are 4 adults. We are going Wednesday, August 10, 2016. Thanks!

Reply
Aug 9, 2016 at 12:34 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Judie,

When you arrive in the morning go get your Frozen FastPass first. One person needs to take all of the park tickets to get the passes—guests must have entered the park. They hand out the shows in order of the shows for the day. Once one show fills up, they start distributing the next show. You do not get to pick. Get whatever show you can and note the time. Arrive about an hour before show time. They are all the same. Keep your ears open. Sometimes they hand out World of Color FastPasses on Buena Vista Street after people enter the park or in the Frozen line. That can save time. Otherwise you pick them up over by Grizzy River Run. Next stop pick up FastPasses for Soarin' or Radiator Springs since the shows do not affect the ability to pick up ride FastPasses (for four adults we recommend getting the FastPasses for Soarin' and doing the single rider line for Radiator Springs early—it can be very short and you may end up in a car with a family member or on the same group of cars. You will all finish within a minute of each other). Then hop in line for Tower of Terror early followed by Screamin'. Be sure to hit Toy Story Midway Mania while you are by Screamin'. Ariel's ride usually has a very short line any time of day so save that one for later.

Hi Belle,

Head to Guest Services and ask about receiving the Disability Access Service Card. It’s designed for guests who aren’t able to wait in a conventional queue because of a disability (especially cognitive related). It works pretty similar to FastPass; you’ll receive return times for attractions so you don’t have to physically wait in line!

Memorial Day crowds can vary from year to year, but we do know that many of the annual passes, except for the lowest pass, are not blocked out that day. Most holidays bring crowds. If you are celebrating a birthday, be sure to get a free birthday button from the information booth, and you can order cakes through the online reservations system.
