How To Avoid Long Lines At Disneyland

(category: Disneyland, Word count: 217)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

One source of frustration for many visitors at

Disneyland is the long lines for the rides. You can

literally spend several hours of the day standing in

line to ride popular attractions. These lines can be

avoided in one of three ways.

Get to the park early. The lines are shorter in the

morning when the park first opens. Instead of

jumping in line for the first ride you see, head for the

rides that you really want to ride the most - the

most popular rides. Another option is to purchase

FastPass tickets for the rides that offer them. Again,

do this early to ensure that you get to ride those rides

earlier in the day.

The third option to avoid long lines at Disneyland is

to ride many of the popular rides later in the evening,

while the majority of people are enjoying the

entertainment. Disneyland has nightly entertainment,

and this is a good time to find shorter lines. Of

course, it will mean that you probably miss the

entertainment, so if you can use one of the other

options for shorter lines at Disneyland, you should

probably do so.

How To Dine With Disneyland Characters

(category: Disneyland, Word count: 324)

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.

Get More Out Of Your Disneyland Vacation With

You don't want to spend your entire Disneyland

Vacation standing in long lines. This can be avoided

by using Disneyland FastPass. FastPass can be

obtained from machines located near the rides that

accept FastPass. This doesn't mean that you get to

immediately move to the front of the line. It is more

like scheduling an appointment for the ride later in

the day - at which time you actually will move to

the front of the line. In the meantime, you are free

to go enjoy other sites and rides around the park.

When you obtain a FastPass ticket, you will be

given a one hour time in which to enjoy the ride. For

instance, your FastPass ticket may say 11am to

12pm. This means that you can show up and move

to the front of the line between the hours of 11am and

12pm. You must have your Disneyland ticket in order

to obtain a FastPass ticket.

At Disneyland, FastPasses are available for Indiana

Jones, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain

Railroad, Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin, Autopia,

Space Mountain, and Buzz Lightyear.

Take A Disneyland Tour

(category: Disneyland, Word count: 481)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

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!

Start Your Day At Disneyland In Fantasyland

(category: Disneyland, Word count: 472)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Any guidebook you read will tell you that you should

begin your day at Disneyland enjoying the attractions

found in Fantasyland. There are several important

reasons as to why this advice is given, and it is

advice that you should strongly consider following.

Fantasyland is one of the most popular areas at

Disneyland because there are no age or size

requirements. The only height restriction is a 35

inch requirement for the Matterhorn. As the day

progresses, Fantasyland will fill up. Getting there

first thing in the morning will help you avoid the long

lines that others will encounter later in the afternoon.

None of the attractions in Fantasyland have

FastPass. This is another reason as to why you

should go there first. FastPass allows you to more

or less 'set an appointment' to ride certain rides -

but none of the attractions in Fantasyland have this

option. Cover Fantasyland first, then go get

FastPasses for the other attractions that you want

to ride.

The crowds and the lines will start growing within a

few hours of Disneyland opening each day. Make

sure that you arrive before the park opens so that

you can be one of the first ones through the gate -

and head straight to Fantasyland before going

anywhere else.

Since all of the guidebooks suggest this, many

other early risers will also be headed for Fantasyland.

Even so, the lines won't get really long for two or

three hours, and by then, you will have already ridden

all of the rides there.

From Fantasyland, you should start collecting

FastPass tickets for the other attractions that have

FastPass throughout the park. It is best to collect

these early in the day - the longer you wait, the l

onger it will be before your appointed time comes

around, depending on how many FastPasses have

been issued for each ride.

While you are waiting for the appointed time for your

first FastPass, you should enjoy other attractions,

visit the shops, or get a snack. Times between

FastPass appointments are great for visiting the

restrooms or sitting down to rest with a cool


Just remember that in order to enjoy the most

attractions at Disneyland you should start with

Fantasyland, followed by gathering FastPass tickets.

Enjoy other attractions between FastPass attractions,

but make sure that you don't put yourself on such a

tight schedule or such a rigid itinerary that you forget

to have fun! Some people simply like to spend some t

ime wandering around the park.

Family Reunions At Disneyland

(category: Disneyland, Word count: 468)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

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 Baby Centers

(category: Disneyland, Word count: 235)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Disneyland is a place for everyone, and at

Disneyland, they have thought of everything -

including the babies. The Disneyland Baby Center

is located on Main Street, behind the Plaza Inn.

This is not a babysitting service. Instead, it is a place

where you can attend to your babies needs.

There are several characters present in this area,

and their purpose there is not only to amuse your

baby, but also to help you attend to your baby's

needs. This area has rockers, where you can rock

and breast feed your baby. No men are allowed in

this room, but they are allowed in other rooms within

the Baby Center. You can warm a bottle or a jar of

food, and clean bottles as necessary. Baby changing

tables are available, and the entire center is very

clean and comfortable. There are even smaller toilets

for children who are being potty trained.

You can also purchase emergency baby supplies at

the Baby Center. Diapers cost about a dollar each,

and several different types of formula and baby food

are kept in supply, although the selections are l

imited. This is Disneyland's way of making sure that

the needs of every guest - no matter how small they

may be - are attended to.

Christmas At Disneyland

(category: Disneyland, Word count: 208)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Christmas is one of the happiest times of the year

for a child. Spending the happiest time of the year,

at the happiest place on earth, could be a dream

that comes true for many children and adults.

Christmas at Disneyland is an experience that will

never be forgotten, and can never be matched.

Disneyland works to make Christmas very special.

Santa's Reindeer Roundup is especially fun, allowing

children to decorate Christmas cookies with Mrs.

Clause, play Reindeer Games, and make holiday

souvenirs. Between seeing all of the characters

dressed up in their holiday costumes and enjoying

the 'snow' after the Fireworks, Christmas at

Disneyland cannot be topped!

Make sure that you visit the Christmas Shoppe and

buy a special holiday ornament. Also, take part in

all of the special holiday rides. Visiting Disneyland

at Christmas time is unlike any other Disneyland

vacation you will ever take. Make sure you get a

picture of the Christmas tree!

Even though Christmas is considered to be

'off-season' you should be prepared for crowds.

Christmas is a very popular time to visit

Disneyland. Make reservations well in advance.

Pamper Yourself At Disneyland

(category: Disneyland, Word count: 461)

You may think that Disneyland is only about fun,

excitement, and activity - but you would be wrong.

Disneyland is also about relaxation and pampering.

The pampering you receive at Disneyland may not

be the same that you would receive at a world class

spa, but it is relaxing and makes you feel special

just the same.

The easiest way to get pampered on your Disneyland

vacation is to book your room at one of the

Disneyland resorts, and upgrading your room to one

that includes Concierge services. The difference in

the price may startle you a bit, with rooms costing

up to $300 per night, but the service you receive will

be out of this world.

First, your room will be much nicer if you have the

Concierge service. You will have free bottles of water,

soft drinks, coffee, and tea at all times. You will be

able to check in and out faster at the Concierge

check in counter, and a nightly turndown service is


Access to the Concierge lounge is where the

pampering really starts! You will enjoy a continental

breakfast in the lounge each morning. You can also

opt to take your breakfast back to your room. In the

afternoon, while the kids watch Disney Videos, you

will enjoy a wine tasting in the lounge as well.

There are many more perks available with the

Concierge service, differing at each resort. To

determine whether the Concierge service will benefit

you and your family, call the resort that you are

considering, and simply ask what perks are included

with this service. Ask to be connected with the

concierge desk to ensure that you are getting

accurate information.

Again, the cost of this upgrade is a bit high, but

when you close your eyes and dream of all of the

pampering and special treatment that you and your

family will enjoy, and you tally up the cost of the free

breakfast and drinks, you may find that the cost is

well worth it. In fact, depending on the size of your

family, you may even discover that the value of the

free breakfast and the free drinks even makes the

entire Disneyland trip a little less expensive for you!

Once you've experienced the Concierge Service on

a trip to Disneyland, you may not be satisfied with

anything less on future Disneyland trips. The

service is out of this world, and can only serve to

make your trip more relaxing and enjoyable.
