How to have the best day out at Disney

June 10, 2016

We see a far share of you counting down to your trips to Disneyland, so we scoured the internet and wanted to compile the best advice we could find for your days out at Disneyland.We are going to split this blog post up into three sections, food, attractions and general advice.

First up is food, now at any Disneyland park there are plenty of themed foods to check out, so we want to showcase a few must dos in terms of food. We think one of the most popular snack foods that gets everyone excited is the Mickey Ice Cream Bar, which you can find around the park in various ice cream carts. If you are looking out for something refreshing to drink and also sweet then you might like the dole float, which is basically a dole whip but just with extra juice on the button. Sounds perfect in the sunny Florida weather. If you want to find it then go to the Tiki Juice Bar in Disneyland Park’s Adventureland. A popular food again that you may have seen a few times on social media is the Mickey waffles, with maple syrup and bacon, so cute and look soo good. Carnation Café on Main Street is where you can find them. If you are looking for something savoury then check out the bacon mac and cheese inside a bread cone, it looks so good to eat. You might just want to book your tickets already just from hearing about all the food.

Next up is attractions, there are a few new attractions at Disneyland now due to the recent launch of the new movie from Star Wars The Force Awakens, so its great to see some more rides to enjoy there are now a lot of interactive experiences which are Star Wars based. You can enjoy seeing some exclusive behind the scenes of the past and present movies. Play some Disneyland exclusive games there and see some expensive and amazing memorabilia. There are aren’t many rides at the moment but you can experience Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular and see a fabulous night time fireworks show. Disneyland is full of amazing rides and some are even better to experience at night time, why not go on Splash Mountain, a classic ride at Disneyland. A ride that is mostly indoors it is a great place to go when you reach the drop and you get a stunning view of Cinderella’s Castle. Another great night time ride if the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, this ride was built to be ridden at night, a lot more exciting when night falls and becomes a lot creepier. There are plenty of other rides to see, these were just a few tips to keep you occupied. 

Lastly some vital advice when going to Disneyland Parks, if you are looking to jump queues and experience Disneyland a lot quicker then get yourself a FastPass which will help with the long queues. Good tips if you go in a large group and no one is willing to stay behind and look after your belonging on water rides, you can place your belongings in lockers you can leave them for free for the first two hours. Good tip if you want to stay late at Disneyland parks is that attractions don’t close when the parks close, so no need to worry if you are waiting in line and are expecting to ride at night time. Talking off night time at the parks most people want to know where to experience the best view for fireworks, apparently watching the fireworks on attractions is the way forward. Storybook Land Canal Boats are the best for viewing the fireworks because they stop the ride so you can see the fireworks. If you like taking selfies then consider others because Disneyland are not allowing the use of selfie sticks. You can try to take it but the likely hood is that you will get kicked off the ride and no one wants that.

Right that’s plenty of short advice on going to Disneyland, if you are counting down to Disneyland then don’t forget to tag us in your pictures. #countdownplus and find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
