Definitely do FastPass for all the rides! 

I’m so jealous…I would love to go to Disneyland with Fiance but he gets sick on rides and doesn’t want to go! 🙁

Tons of tips and advice!

1.Make sure you plan your days out well.  Double check to see what time the parks close and open as they vary.  Also, make sure you plan well so you’re able to incorporate the various firework shows.  They one have at the Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, one around the Rivers of America – “Fantasmic” (it’s pretty awesome) and “Colors of the World” at California Adventure.  All of these events happen roughly at the same time, around 9pm, so make sure you’re catching a different one each night so you don’t miss them.  (And of course, if you want good seats, you’ll need to get there early)

 

2. Take advantage of their fast pass options.  It’s like making reservations for rides so you don’t end up waiting for hours and hours in line.  Try to fast pass the “busy” rides right away – sometimes the fast pass get booked up really quickly.  So I recommend fast passing Space Mountain and Splash Mountain as early as you can.  I fast passed Space Mountain at 10am was given an 8pm return time because it was so busy.  Also, with Splash Mountain, the line ups get a lot shorter as evening approaches but I doubt you’d want to be wet at night whereas in the day you dry a lot quicker and the soak is refreshing from the heat.

 

3. Take advantage of your early admission days.  On your multi day pass, you’re allowed to enter the park an hour earlier than everyone else.  Don’t sleep in, get there early and hit the rides that don’t allow a fast pass, such as Finding Nemo. 

4. Take advantage of disney cast members who are more than happy to take pictures of you and your husband – this way you’re not taking individual shots or out of focus shots.

 

5. Bring your own bottled water and snacks.  You’re allowed to bring in a few items which will definitely save you money as bottled water in the park is about $3 each.  Make sure to stay hydrated to avoid sun stroke.

 

6. Hit the Aladdin musical at California Adventure.  Again, plan well, as it only shows on various days throughout the week.

 

7. Don’t rule out “children’s events” sometimes those are some of the most amusing, such as learning to draw cartoon characters at the Animation Academy in California Adventure.

 

8. Eat your meals slightly earlier or later to avoid crowds

 

9. The obvious, wear sunblock and comfortable shoes.  The second time I went, I got a sunburn on my forehead and scalp – it hurt.  And of course, comfy shoes.  Yes flip flops and other dainty footwear would match your outfit but you’ll be walking a LOT – avoid blisters and wear good, comfy shoes…runners. 

 

10. Be sure to hit the Guest Relations at Main Street – tell them you’ve recently gotten married and they’ll give you free buttons that say “Just Married” or “Happily Ever After” or some other sort of souvenir for free!

 

11. Use the ART transit system to help get you around Anaheim.  It’s suppose to be a simple transit system to transport guests from their hotels to the park and back but you can also use it to get around to other places, such as Target (to get bottled water and other supplies) or other restaurants outside the park.

 

12. Take advantage of discounted tickets.  If you’re going to be in the area for about a week, it’s wise to invest in the “City Pass”.  It’s very reasonably priced and provides extremely discounted tickets to 4 different theme parks:

a) Disneyland AND California Adventure

b) Sea World

c) Universal Studios

d)your choice of either San Diego Zoo or San Diego Wild Life Safari

 

Congratulations and I hope you enjoy your honeymoon!  Have fun 🙂

We are doing disney world for our wedding and our disney-moon!

 

i have only been to disneyLAND once and the only suggestion i have is that you MUST MUST MUST see Disney’s World of Color! I have goosebumps now just thinking about it and getting the music stuck in my head.

 

my darling Fiance has never been to any Disney park and I’m SO excited that I get to be the one to introduce him to the magic (tears in my eyes as i type this… i feel very strongly about disney) and that his first Disney World memory will be the beginning of our marriage. really, i can’t think of anything more perfect than that. i am sharing the two most important parts of my life with each other… and it’s pure, innocent, joyful, and everything good and happy.

Disneyland native here (live in OC, go all the time) ….my advice is:

1. Stay at disneyland hotel or paradise pier, both are great and if you stay at a disneyland resort you get two free fastpasses per person that you can use on any ride, not the same as the ones you get in the park.

2. Start in Fantasyland and then branch out, the later on in the day that area becomes blocked off/difficult to get around due to parades and fireworks show

3. My favorite food in park: Thunder Mountain Ranch BBQ for dinner. It’s all you can eat ribs and chicken with cornbread.  Go through Fantasyland and take a left past Rapunzel, walk further down and it’s on the right.

4. Don’t try to go to both parks in one day. It’s too much. Go to Disneyland one day then Cali Adventure another day.

5. Favorite food in Downtown Disney: Naples Pizzeria. Sit at bar, order drinks and pizza, rinse and repeat

 

Have fun!

ilovemichael:  Were going for 10 days! My suggestion is just go, relax, & have fun! And remember, you’re there for each other so who cares how long lines are, get fast passes, and don’t worry about impatient people. Just have fun and enjoy yourselves! 🙂
