ABOUT LESLIE HARVEY
DISNEYLAND HOLIDAYS TIPS
- If you are planning on visiting Disneyland for the holidays, the best time seems to be in early December and during the week if you can. There seems to be a good lull in visitors at this time after the decorations are first put up and when holiday school breaks start.
- The Sip and Savor Pass is a great idea for families that plan to try several different food items. You recieve 8 tickets for different food items and you don’t have to use them all in one day. But try to plan what you use your tickets for to get the most value out of your tickets.
- Due to the weather, shows and fireworks can be cancelled so try not to plan your entire visit on these events since there is a possibility that they could get cancelled.
- Be sure to check crowd calendars when you plan your trip. If you do decide to go during peak season be sure to get there as soon as the park opens (or earlier) because they will close entry to the park if they reach a certain capacity. This can happen as early as mid-day in some seasons.
- The Disneyland app is a great help and you should make sure at least one of your party has it downloaded. The app will tell you when rides are closed, even if only temporarily. This can save you a long walk to a ride you would like to experience when the ride was closed down.
