Disneyland Ticket Security
You must have your Disneyland ticket in order to
enter the park. You must also have the ticket to get
FastPass tickets. Because this ticket is so
important, it needs to be kept in a safe place. Along
with the Disneyland ticket, you also need a safe
place to keep money or the Disneyland Merchandise
A wallet or purse is not very practical at Disneyland.
Instead, you should purchase a FastPass holder -
even if you don't get any FastPasses. This is a small
plastic pouch that hangs from a cord, which is worn
around the neck. These can be purchased at
Disneyland, and they are very inexpensive.
If you think you might not want to spend a little bit of
money on the FastPass holder, you should consider
what a new Disneyland ticket will cost. If you lose
your Disneyland ticket, you will not be allowed to
enter the park the next day without purchasing a new
ticket. When you look at the small cost of the
Disneyland FastPass holder, you will see that it is
well worth it.
Take A Disneyland Tour
No Disneyland Vacation can be complete without a
Disneyland tour - especially if it is your first trip to
Disneyland. There are currently four different tours
to choose from, and Disneyland park admission is
required for all tours. It is strongly advised that you
make a reservation for the tours that you wish to go
Disneyland's Discover the Magic Tour may be the
most popular of the four. This tour will have you and
your family working with Disneyland characters to
find clues and hunt for treasure. You can literally live
out a Disneyland fantasy with your family and loveable
characters, outsmarting the Disney bad guys! This
tour includes lunch and an exclusive gift that can only
be obtained on this tour.
The Discover the Magic Tour lasts for about three
hours. There is a two ticket minimum, and the cost
is $49 each of the first two tickets, with additional
tickets costing $39. The tour is appropriate for the
5 - 9 year old age group, and adults. The tour is
not really suitable for children under the age of five,
or for children who need strollers.
The VIP Tour lasts for about four hours, and costs
$75 per hour for a party of up to ten people. You
must book this tour well in advance, or there will be
an additional twenty dollar fee. The tour is not
recommended for children, but is designed more for
people who have a true love and interest in Disney
and Disneyland history.
The Welcome to Disneyland Tour is absolutely
perfect for first timers. There are many benefits to
this tour, including priority seating at one of the stage
shows, tips and suggestions for getting the most out
of your Disneyland vacation, a brief history of the
park, priority seating at one of the many restaurants,
instruction in using FastPass, two bonus FastPass
tickets, and much more. This tour lasts about two
and a half hours, and costs $25 per person.
A Walk in Walt's Footsteps focuses on the vision of
Walt Whitman, and is not really suitable for small
children. Filled with history and trivia about the park,
this tour lasts for more than three hours, and costs
$49 per person. The main feature of this tour is your
peek at the exclusive Club 33.
Again, you should definitely consider making one of
these tours part of your Disneyland experience -
especially if this will be your first trip to Disneyland.
You may see things and learn things that you would
not see or learn without the benefit of the tour!
Entertainment At Disneyland
There is always something to see or do at
Disneyland, but Disneyland adds to this with nightly
entertainment during the peak season, and weekend
entertainment during the off-season. There is also
special entertainment during special occasions, such
as the Fourth of July and Christmas.
Fantasmic is held twice each night during the peak
season, and on weekends during the off-season.
The show takes place on Tom Sawyer's Island, and
features many characters, music, and fireworks. For
the best seating possible, purchase tickets for
Fantasmic in advance, but note that free seating is
also available, and is included in your Disneyland
park admission price.
The Parade of Dreams features large colorful floats
accompanied by many Characters. This parade
takes place twice each day. During the parade, the
entire parade will stop three times to do a
choreographed show, and most of the Disney
Characters are portrayed in the Parade of Dreams.
In the Fantasyland Theater, you can see a musical
of Snow White. This show is held several times
throughout the day. This show should not be missed
- especially if you love Snow White. Since the show
is held several times each day, reservations are not
These are just a few of the shows that are available
at Disneyland. Again, entertainment is an ongoing
thing at the park, with each day bringing something
new. One thing that you can definitely count on, of
course, is the fireworks! The fireworks show is held
late each night - before the park closes for the day.
Even if you can't stay for the fireworks, you can
probably see them out of your hotel window! Try to
get a view of the Fireworks from in front of Sleeping
Beauty's Castle for the greatest effect. The fireworks
on the Fourth of July are out of this world.
To find out if there are any special shows or events
during the time that you will be at Disneyland, visit
the website, call the park, or ask your travel agent to
find this information out for you. You may also want
to inquire about special events during specific
months, so that you can plan your stay at
Disneyland for those days.
Most entertainment is provided free of charge, and is
part of your admission price. However, special
seating, or priority seating usually requires a fee, as
well as a reservation. Some events require an
admission price that is separate from your park
admission. Again, check the website, call the park,
or discuss events and fees with your travel agent
when planning your Disneyland vacation.
How To Dine With Disneyland Characters
If you really want to delight your child - or yourself -
you should arrange to have a Disneyland Character
meal. This will allow you and your whole family to
have quality time with one or more of the
Disneyland characters. In fact, this is the best
way to really get to interact with them for any
length of time.
Start by making a reservation. This can be done
through the Disneyland Vacation Planning Services
Department. Reservations can be made up to sixty
days in advance, so don't leave this to the last
minute. Make these reservations while your
Disneyland vacation is being planned.
Character breakfasts take place each morning at the
park. You do not need a reservation for these meals.
These breakfasts take place in many of the parks
restaurants, but Goofy's Kitchen is a great place to
start. It is located in the Disneyland Hotel, and there
are dishes to please everyone. Children under three
years of age get to eat free, which should be
considered when you are planning the budget for
your trip. Goofy is always there, with Pluto, but
other characters come and go all throughout the
day. You should definitely make reservations for
Goofy's kitchen, as it is quite popular, and the wait
can be very long.
If dining with Princesses is important, than Ariel's
Grotto is the place to be. Serving three course meals,
this is elegant dining that both kids and adults can
enjoy. Each princess will come spend a little time at
your table during your meal - one at a time.
Reservations for Ariel's Grotto are also recommended.
This is one place in the park where both alcoholic and
non-alcoholic drinks are served.
The Storyteller's Caf
Disneyland Purchases Package Express
One of the nice guest service features at Disneyland
is the Package Express service. This will allow you
to make purchases, and not have to carry them
around with you all day! Can you imagine trying to
hold all of your packages, your kids, and ride the
Instead, have your purchases sent to the Newsstand,
which is located near the exit. This Package Express
purchase allows you to pick your packages up as
you are leaving the park. If you stay till closing, note
that the pickup line will be very long. You should plan
to leave at least an hour earlier than you had originally
planned if you have packages to pick up.
You can also have your purchases sent directly to
your hotel if you are staying at one of the Resort
Hotels. This offers even more convenience, because
you won't have to leave the park earlier, or stand in
the package pickup line. Another option is to rent a
locker, and put all of your purchases in it until you
are ready to leave. However, this means that you will
have to walk back to the locker after each of your
Family Reunions At Disneyland
Everyone looks forward to family reunions - and who
doesn't love Disneyland? You can bring the two
together by having your family reunion at the happiest
place on earth. It is really easier than you might think
to arrange this!
Start by calling the Disneyland Vacation Planning
Services Department. Let them help you book rooms
at the Resort hotels, and admission tickets to the park.
You should be able to get discounts on the tickets by
purchasing them in bulk.
The specific service that you need to accommodate
all of your family members is the 'Happiest Place on
Earth Picnic.' This service is offered year round, and
includes admission to the park for your entire party.
You also get a choice of fully catered meals for the
event. For 100 - 300 people, your event can be held
at Big Thunder Ranch. For 300 - 1000 people, the
event will be held at the Festival Arena.
If there are less than 100 people in your party, you
may not be eligible for the catering services. This is
at the sole discretion of Disneyland, and you will
need to discuss this with Guest Services or the
Planning Services Departments. If catering is not
available, reservations in the many restaurants can
be made instead.
You may be able to get a discount on your family
member's rooms at the Resorts as well, if you book
well in advance, hold your event during the off-season,
and book a block of rooms. Airline tickets for those
who will need to fly to Disneyland should also be
purchased well in advance, and in bulk for additional
Again, allow Disneyland Vacation Planning Services
to help you with the arrangements, and use a travel
agent to handle any arrangements that planning
services doesn't cover. For best results, choose one
family member to work with the planning services
and the travel agent, and relay information back and
forth between the services and the family members.
Having one person collecting and sharing information
will cut down on a great deal of confusion and
misinformation when you are trying to make travel
arrangements for a large number of people.
It may take work and planning, but in the end, this
will be one family reunion that will never be forgotten.
Talk with the Vacation Planning Services Department
to find out what other services are available to make
this an even more special experience for you and
your family members. The Surprise services would
be a nice touch!
Disneyland Surprises For Yourself And Loved Ones
If you would like to surprise someone who will be
traveling with you to Disneyland, you can easily do
this by using the Disneyland Vacation Planning
Service. This service has many different services that
can be performed for you, but one of the best ones is
the Surprise service.
Simply contact the Vacation Planning department,
and tell them who the surprises will be for, which
Resort hotel you will be staying at and what your
budget is for the surprises. You will also need to tell
them when you would like the surprise deliveries to
be made, and what type of gifts you are interested in.
They will also want to know who the favorite Disney
character is of the person that you want to surprise.
After providing all of this information, your credit card
information will be required. You can be sure that the
amount charged to your credit card will not exceed
your surprise budget that you have set. This is a great
way to add more value to your Disney experience, and
to constantly experience great anticipation of the next
surprise to come!
The Disneyland Hotel
For the ultimate Disneyland vacation, you should
definitely stay at the Disneyland Resort Hotel. With
990 rooms in three high rise towers, this is the
original Disney Hotel, located in Downtown Disney.
If you want to truly experience all that Disneyland
has to offer, you must stay at the Disneyland Resort
The guest rooms in the Disneyland Hotel are
astounding. Offering standard rooms and suites,
each room has either a king size bed or two queen

available, as well as smoking and non-smoking rooms.
The rooms are even sprinkled with Pixie Dust! For
families, the suites are highly recommended. Suites
contain one, two, or three bedrooms, and have all
of the amenities of a standard room as well.
The Concierge service at the Disneyland Hotel
cannot be topped. Concierge service entitles you to
priority check-in, admission to an exclusive lounge,
a continental breakfast, an evening wine and cheese
reception. Nightly turn-down service is included, as
well as DVD players and complimentary movies.

and there are several cove pools and a sandy beach.
The hotel also features a children's playground, a
volleyball court, and Koi fish ponds. The recreational
area encompasses a 5000 square foot area inspired
by Peter Pan. There are many scenic waterfalls,
tropical foliage, and mysterious caves on the property.
There is even a Team Mickey work out room full of
state-of-the-art gym equipment.
At the Disneyland Hotel, you will feel like your
Disney experience has truly already started as soon
as you walk in the door. This is where the famous
Goofy's Kitchen is located, as well as The Captain's
Galley, The Coffee House, Crocs Bits 'n' Bites,
Granville's Steak House, Hook's Pointe, The Wine
Cellar, and The Lost Bar.
When you stay at the Disneyland Hotel, your
vacation continues even after a day of sight seeing
and attractions in the park. In fact, your Disneyland
vacation begins each and every morning when you
wake up in the Magic Kingdom that the Disneyland
Celebrate Birthdays At Disneyland
If you want to celebrate your birthday, or the birthday
of a child at Disneyland, you can easily do this - and
it doesn't even have to be done on the exact date of
birth! Start celebrating by going to City Hall, which is
located in Town Square, upon your arrival to
Disneyland. Here, you will receive a Birthday Sticker
or button. This sticker tells everyone on at Disneyland
that you are to receive special treatment.
On your birthday celebration day, make sure that
you eat in one of the full service restaurants, and that
you order the Birthday Bucket. It will be full of
Disney treats, and it includes a cake. This costs
around twenty dollars. Eat breakfast at Goofy's
Kitchen and you can get a Birthday Bag for five
There are many ways to enjoy your birthday at
Disneyland. You will receive special treatment from
all of the Disney Characters in the park. This can be
a memorable birthday celebration for you or your
child - so make sure you take lots of pictures, and
don't be shy about telling people who work at the
park that it is your birthday - if they don't notice
