5 Must-Know Tips Before You Travel to Disneyland Pic

1. One of the best unknown tips is that the best time to go to Disneyland is in mid to late September, January, and even the first part of May because crowds are usually lower and because the weather is not too hot or too cold. On the rare occasion, you may experience some rain, but do not panic I love to go when it is a little bit rainy outside because it scares most of the people away allowing you to get on many more rides and much quicker. It is also a good time to go during these months because most school kids will be in class and not on break which is when Disneyland is the most crowded.

2. The second Must-Know tip is to buy Disney gift cards at Target and use your REDCARD to save 5% instantly! A Target REDCARD does not cost anything to apply for you just need an active checking account, Drivers license, and a voided check. Any checker or customer service representative can help you sign up, and it only takes a few minutes. You can use Disney gift cards to purchase anything in the park from food to souvenirs. Pre-purchasing Disney gift cards is also a great way to plan and pay for a future Disney vacation. Everyone is always asking if Disney offer coupons or special deals.  Yes, this is an easy way to save money!

3. The third Must-Know tip is if you wanted to do Character Dining did you know if you eat at a Character Breakfast vs. Character dinner you can say approximately 35%! A theme park ticket is required to enjoy any restaurant located in the park. Recommendations are HIGHLY recommended and can be done up to 60 days in advance. There is no charge for children under the age of three, but make sure to include in your party size, so they have a seat. Another great thing about character dining is you can get many signatures and pictures from the many Disney Character friends you will be greeted by and not have to wait in the long autograph lines.

4. The fourth Must-Know tip is you must use Disney’s Rider Switch feature! Rider switch applies if you are with another adult and you have an infant or child in your party that cannot ride an attraction you can ask a cast member in charge of the attraction if Rider Switch is available. While one person watches the child, another adult can go on the attraction. Once they are finished, the parent watching the child can now go on and can even bring another guest along with them up to two guests.
