8 Travel Tips For Disneyland

Taking the kids to Disneyland is a dream of many a parent. Make your trip more memorable by following these clever travel tips.

Disneyland Hotels

Tip: If traveling by air, it is important to think ahead of time. Remember that it's easy to hit traffic on the way to the airport, especially if it's in a big city.

We love Disneyland hotels. They offer a wide array of amenities all within walking distance of the hotel. Laundry services are available and there's plenty to do while you're not in the theme park itself. Get a package deal where you can have a few meals already included and you're all set.

Pack Light

Tip: When traveling by air, do not count on the airline to provide for your needs, even on a long flight. Because of cutbacks, many airlines do not provide pillows, blankets or headphones, so bring your own if you will use them.

Most vacationers find that they have only worn a few items out of their suitcase during their entire trip. Don't pay extra for luggage especially if you're only wearing half of what you bring. Pack clothing that will wash and wear quickly such as lightweight shirts and dresses, lightweight pants and easy to match shoes. Take advantage of laundry services mid trip and you'll be able to continue mixing and matching. Remember, you're on vacation and part of vacation is making do with what you brought.

Inclusive Deals

Tip: When traveling by car to a port prior to cruising, search for lodgings where you can park at no cost and make reservations for the night before departure. Check with the hotel staff about parking deals even if none are published.

All inclusive deals include hotel and flight and you can also include some meals. This is a great way to stretch your budget. Including meals will help you to stay on your budget because you order all of this ahead of time when you pay for your trip. Then, you can save more money to spend on incidentals or snacks.

Off Peak

Tip: The vast sand dunes and exotic animals and plants are something you likely couldn't experience anywhere else. Someone who has never experienced a desert will likely find their first exposure very striking.

Choose off peak travel days and times. If you're planning to go to Disneyland on spring break, guess how many others are as well. Plan your vacation before or after spring break or even overlap it slightly one direction or the other. This will help you to enjoy your trip more as it will be less crowded.

Downtown Disney

Tip: Sleeping medication can help you get through a rough flight. With all the unfamiliarity and noise of an aircraft, many people are unable to sleep on planes.

Take advantage of Downtown Disney and enjoy some night life. Great souvenirs and music await you in this area of the hotels. If you want to go to the fancier restaurants, call ahead and make reservations otherwise enjoy the great street fair and pick what you want to eat from the myriad of choices. Plan to have some disney down time here and sit back and relax.

Early Entry

Tip: Make sure that your passports are valid. Many countries have specific rules concerning your passport.

Many inclusive packages include some early time at the theme park. Take advantage of this when the theme park is only open to these packages. You won't have as many crowds. Choose rides that are normally crowded during the regular day and you're sure to get your turn.

Peak Park Times

Tip: Sign up for email newsletters offered by most major airlines. These newsletters are great if you want to take advantage of special offers, discounts and other exclusive perks.

Avoid peak park times. You're in a hotel nearby and you can come and go as you desire. Go in early, leave a lunch time when the crowds are larger and come back later in the afternoon when others start going home. Take this time to do a load of laundry, enjoy the hotel pool or take a siesta. You'll enjoy your adventure more when it's less crowded.


Tip: A park pass from the National Parks services will benefit you if you are planning on visiting often. They cost around $50 and will get you into any national park for a whole year.

Do tip your waiter or waitress even if you've pre paid, do tip the housekeeping staff, do tip the concierge service especially if they've helped you run an unexpected errand. You don't have to tip a lot but be kind, they are helping you.

Enjoy your trip to Disneyland.
