Tip #1: Park Hop – With Disneyland® Park and Disney’s California Adventure® Park located just steps from each other, a Park Hopper® Ticket is the perfect way to save time and “maximize the magic.” This ticket allows your Clients to go back and forth as often as they like, so they’ll be sure to experience all of the new parades, shows and attractions in honor of the 50th anniversary of Disneyland® Park. And if one theme park is particularly busy, the other is only a few steps away!
Tip #2: Save Time in Line – Disney’s FASTPASS® Service (which is included with theme park admission) provides timesaving passes that allow your Clients to enjoy some of the most popular attractions with little or no wait. Clients can also save time with “single rider” queues available at Splash Mountain, Soarin’ Over California and other popular attractions. In addition, queues for attractions tend to be shorter early in the morning, at night and during parade performances. At Disneyland® Park, tell your Clients to check the information board (located near Plaza Pavilion) for the most up-to-date attraction wait times.
Tip #3: Extended Park Hours – Both Disneyland® Park and Disney’s California Adventure® Park have extended hours through the summer … allowing your Clients more time to enjoy the magic. Clients can check the supplemental “Entertainment Times Guide,” available at the entrance to each theme park, for exact operating times on the day of their visit.
Tip #4: Plan Dining Ahead – Whether it’s breakfast with Minnie & Friends or a meal fit for a Princess, some of the most memorable Disney experiences are enjoyed in our Resort’s themed restaurants. Reserve priority seating in advance for your Clients by calling (714) 781-DINE. And here’s an extra tip: Tell your Clients to visit restaurants during off-peak hours (such as an early breakfast, late lunch or an early/late dinner).
Tip #5: Know Before You Go – Clients can save time by knowing which children in their party are able to visit which attractions according to height requirements. Clients can check guide maps or the information kiosks at the theme parks.
Tip #6: Keep Cool Indoors – If theme park queues get busy, Clients can visit one of the many indoor attractions to maximize their time in both theme parks. These include: Disneyland®: The First 50 Magical Years, the Enchanted Tiki Room, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, “it’s a small world,” Golden Dreams or the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™!
Tip #7: Find Characters Fast – There’s no need to guess! Guide maps now show exact times and locations where your Clients can meet their favorite Disney Character. Some restaurants also offer Disney Character Dining, which is perfect for more one-on-one time with their favorite mouse, duck or dog! Here’s an extra hint: Be sure to tell your Clients to carry an autograph book so they can collect each Character’s unique signature.
Tip #8: Relax – Remember … vacations should be restful, too. And with so much to see at the Disneyland® Resort, your Clients will want to take extra time to enjoy it all. Whether it’s a swim at their Disneyland® Resort Hotel, shopping at the Downtown Disney® District or a massage at the new Mandara Spa, your Clients will feel less rushed to “see it all” in one day and have a better, more relaxed vacation to enjoy.
Tip #9: Take the Train – Looking to get off your feet and still get around? Hop aboard one of Walt Disney’s personal favorites – the Disneyland® Railroad. Departing from Town Square, and with stops at Mickey’s Toontown, New Orleans Square and Tomorrowland, this scenic journey is a great way to save your feet and side-step a busy day.
Tip #10: Shop BEFORE You Drop – Tell your Clients to shop early in the afternoon (ideally between 2 and 4 p.m.) when most Guests are visiting the attractions
