✔️Tip #1 When you’re on Main Street, stay out of the middle of the street! There are tracks for some of the Main Street vehicles that your stroller, or your foot can get caught in, and it’s not fun! Also, if you need to get down Main Street during a parade, the gift shops along the street are all connected so you can from one end to the other pretty quickly!
✔️Tip #2 Go to Fantasyland early, at rope drop, because lines for rides like Peter Pan’s Flight and Dumbo get pretty long later in the day and don’t have a Fastpass option.
✔️Tip #3 Try the Grey Stuff, it’s delicious! Trust me. You need this in your life. It is available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Red Rose Taverne in Fantasyland. The Grey Stuff is red velvet cake and raspberry filling, with cookies and cream white chocolate mousse piped all around it. It is amazing, but very rich and is a great snack to share! The recipe is coming soon over at mommymouseclubhouse.com!
✔️Tip #4 Unfortunately, kids are going to have meltdowns and tantrums, even at Disneyland! Fortunately, some cotton candy and ice cream came to the rescue! Treats work sometimes, but you might just need to find a quiet place for your little one to calm down. If you’ve dealt with cranky kids at Disney, let me know how you handled it in the comments down below!
✔️Tip #5 My kids love Autopia! This attraction used to have Fastpasses available, but that is no longer the case. This line can take a really long time, so if it is something that your kids want to ride, you should try to ride it as early in the day as possible.
✔️Tip #6 Visit Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland. It is a heaven for Star Wars fans! Inside, you’ll find props and costumes form the movies, an area filled with Star Wars video game, which is my boys favorite part. You can meet some Star Wars Characters like Darth Vader and Chewbacca and there is of course, a gift shop!
✔️Tip #7 Don’t ride Space Mountain without a Fastpass! The line for Space Mountain gets long quickly and stays long the whole day. The only way we will ride it is if we have a Fastpass. I was able to grab Fastpasses for this right when we arrived while my family was in Fantasyland.
✔️Tip #8 Use Rider Switch.My little guy is finally over 40 inches so our whole family was able to ride together! If you have little ones who are not that tall, Disneyland has, what they call, rider switch! Basically, you can go up to the entrance of Space Mountain, let the cast member know that you need a rider switch. One adult will stay out with the younger children while the other adult rides. When they have finished, the adult that stayed with the kids, is able to skip the line, kind of like having a fast pass.
✔️#9 Don’t miss The Jungle Cruise in Adventureland! The Jungle Cruise is a must ride for our family. It is something that everyone can ride together, and the jokes are the best!
It was a long fun day at Disneyland! Make sure to subscribe and hit the notification bell so that you won’t miss Day 2 when we’ll be at disney California Adventure Park. See ya real soon!
