TIP ONE: TAKE A PHOTO OF WHERE YOU PARKED. We didn't and it took us 10 minutes to find our car at the end of the day.
TIP TWO: TRY NOT TO GO ON A WEEKEND (DUH), BUT WE WENT ON A SUNDAY AND HAD FUN ANYWAY.
TIP THREE: WEAR ATHLETIC SHOES NO MATTER HOW DORKY THEY LOOK WITH YOUR OUT FIT. I had on cute sandals but as Thomas said "everyone else is wearing running shoes so who cares." So I switched to my Nike's (Thank God).
TIP FOUR: GET THIS HANDY MOBILE APP THAT TELLS YOU WAIT TIMES IN THE PARK AND OTHER THINGS…like where Characters are, restaurants, restrooms, etc.
TIP FIVE: (THOMAS SWEARS BY THIS) ALWAYS HAVE A FAST PASS. It lets you get in the fast line and as soon as you use your Fast Pass, run and get one for the next ride you want to go on since the computer only lets you have one Fast Pass at a time.
We waited too late to get a Fast Pass for this Radiator Springs Racers ride (they were not available until later after we planned to leave). This is in California Adventure and reminds me of the drive to Mammoth Mountain.
But while we were in California Adventure we split a micro-brewery beer…oh yeah…
TIP SIX: THEY SERVE WINE AND BEER IN CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE (so Californian)…but no alcohol in Disneyland.
TIP SIX: BUY A COUPLE BOTTLES OF WATER…THEN, YOU CAN REFILL THEM AT THE WATER FOUNTAINS EVERYWHERE. I thought the "Disney Water Fountain Water" tasted good and I'm sort of picky.
THIS IS A REPEAT OF TIP FOUR: ALWAYS GET A FAST PASS…we got one for here and sailed right on in…but look at all those warnings. I DID IN FACT, MEET THE MINIMUM HEIGHT REQUIREMENT :) It was really fun, but skip it if you have back problems.
Thank you, Thomas for taking yo mama to celebrate Disneyland's 60th birthday!
