01 | always.. always take the time to see the billy hill and the hillbillies show! it’s the perfect spot to sit down, rest your feet and have a meal. plus the show is h.i.l.a.r.i.o.u.s.!!
02 | have a churro or frozen banana everyday. it’s a rule! if you are an over achiever like me have both!
03 | if you have a tiny freezer in your tiny fridge at your hotel, freeze as many water bottles as you can, to take into the park. it’s also good to know that anywhere that serves fountain drinks in the park will give you free ice water.
04 | our favorite spots to sit for the parades are in front of the candy shop or the ice cream shop. for obvious reasons. 🙂
05 | make sure to get one special keepsake. traditional mickey hats. an autograph book. a collectible pin. something to take home and remember your trip by.
01 | take advantage of the extra magic hour if you’re staying in one of the disneyland resort hotels. you get early admission, to select attractions, in either park one hour before they open to the public.
03 | when you’re thinking about a trip to disney, order yourself a free vacation planning dvd to watch ahead of time (even if you’ve been several times before). watching the dvd with my kiddos gets us all really excited for an upcoming trip.
04 | on the walk back to the hotel at night, grab a bag of kettle corn, an ice-cream cone from haagen-dazs, a treat from marceline’s confectionery or all three. 😉 (all can be found in downtown disney)
05 | set aside some time to explore the redwood creek challenge trail in california adventure. my family had a blast the last time we were there. (and so many times before that, we just walked right on by the thing thinking it wouldn’t be that fun)
06 | eat at the cafe orleans to enjoy the pommes frites and the monte cristo sandwich (which can easily be shared with a friend). make sure to ask for some vanilla sauce on the side. this is the only place at disneyland that gives free refills.
We’d love to hear!!
