As you know, on our Interrail trip this summer, we took an amazing detour to Paris and headed off to Disneyland, which you can briefly read about and see a little photo diary of here. With that, we have come up with a few tips to share with you!
Avoid Bringing a Big Bag
We’re so glad we never came with a big bag, but with only our travel bum bag, as we realised when we got there that there were no places to leave your bag once you got on the rides.
Side note: in regards to cameras, we took my GoPro, which fit perfectly on the bum bag, as well as suitable for filming rides and the parade and used my iPhone to take photos.
Make the Most of the Free FASTPASS® use
Although we only used this once, it was really useful. We decided to grab a FASTPASS® ticket for my absolute favourite ride which was predicted for be over an hours wait, in that waiting time we were able to it in another ride which was less of the time and it worked out perfectly. It’s the best way to avoid the queues, although it’s only available for some, so make sure to check beforehand and you can only pick up on FASTPASS® at a time, so think about which rides you’d want it more for.
Create a Guideline Plan of your Day/Parks
Once we arrived, grabbed a map and sat down for breakfast, we knew we had to come up with a proper plan to make most of the one day we had here.
As the big kids that we are, we knew that are out was to make out way through the big kid rides – starting from the beginning and making our way around the whole park. We knew what time the parade was at and what time we needed to find our place, and how the other park closes earlier.
Pack a Picnic
I know this slightly contradicts the first tip, but if you plan it right, it shouldn’t be so bad. As you can imagine, Disneyland prices are a tad bit extreme and as ones who didn’t bring a picnic, we know first hand about those prices.
Side note: take a water bottle, there are fountains within the park which you can refill your bottles along the way. We bought a drink there and reused it in the park.
Bring a Portable Charger
This seems like the most obvious but this was the absolute life changer, for Disneyland as well as the whole of our Interrail trip. We were in the park from 9:45 am to 11:30 pm, with all the phone checking, picture taking, typical social media updates and firework display recordings – your phone is bound to run out at some point but you wouldn’t want to miss out on any photo opportunities, not in Disneyland!
