WOW! What a week this was! We got to have an entire day at Disney with some early access. Although I tried to look up “Disney for adults” tips I feel like I really didn’t get any that helped. Thank goodness for my Scentsy sisters we sorted out a few different tips that I think were invaluable.
Take advantage of Fastpass. It comes with the photo pass (we did not know this for a while and missed out). You can book 1 fast pass when you get into the park it’s $10 and lasts all day. Get into the gates pick your top ride that’s available and pick a time. Go do some other easier to get on rides until closer to that time. You won’t be able to pick a second fast pass ride until closer to the first. If you are going to leave for a bit BOOK SOME FAST PASS rides before you come back. By supper time there will not be any fast passes left. We ended up fast passing on about 4 of our top rides and in total did 11 rides in one day. It was awesome!
Use your fast pass to book restaurant reservations- but book early. We didn’t and missed out. Book a time in the morning or you’ll miss out. Don’t make a reservation? Corner Cafe is a must try because it has great sandwiches, prices are good and the bakery goods are amazing, check out this cupcake!
Take the afternoon off if you’re going in the summer. We left about 2pm and came back about 7pm. That break was perfect. We had Scentsy general session but it was about the point I was getting hot and cranky. A lunch break then would work well too. By 7pm most of the park was in shade and it was LOVELY.
Try the new rides. Indiana Jones was our favorite, we also did the new Star Wars. They were both amazing. We did some awsome nostalgia rides too- Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, and Peter Pan were also fun.
California Adventure closes at 10, Disneyland at midnight. Wish we had realized that because we would have gotten some Adventure rides in such as the Incredibles rollercoaster and the cars rides. Both of those looked awesome.
BUY THE EARS. I didn’t get it until I was there, but took a leap and got some ears and wore them my entire time. Everyone is wearing them and it’s fun!
Stop in at the first store when you get into Disney and ask for a 1st Visit Pin. We ended up with three pins and you get some extra attention when you wear it. There are pins for birthdays etc as well!
Most of all- have fun! Use the app, get the photos with the characters and enjoy yourself! Also- SUNSCREEN 🙂
