Go Mouse Scouts | Visiting Disneyland and Disney World with Kids | A Fan Podcast Bringing you Disney Park Tips & Family Fun!

Mar 27, 2017

Megan & Kris respond to a question from the Disneyland Subreddit and talk about planning a longer Disneyland trip! Here's the question on Reddit:

I'm taking my family to Disneyland at the end of April and I'm trying to plan ahead as much as possible. When we go we will have a 4 year old and a 10 month old. We purchased 5 day single park tickets with the plan to go to Disneyland 3 days and California Adventures 2 days. Does that split sound about right or should I upgrade to park hopper tickets and plan on 3.5 days in DL and 1.5 in CA? We are hoping with 5 days we could be more casual with the pace where we can go back to the hotel and take naps each day, does that sound reasonable?

It seemed like their immediate question was sufficiently answered in the comments on Reddit, so we took it a step further and gave some tips on planning and sustaining yourselves during a longer Disneyland trip. 


Planning a Longer Disneyland Trip

Sustaining yourselves for a long trip. 
• Don't rush. 
• Take down time at hotel during mid day.
• Plan some things other than rides for mid day if they stay at the parks (while things are busy (Take our scavenger hunt!)
• Have a plan for each day, but be flexible

Tips Maximizing time. 
• Rope Drop
• Fast passes
• Rider Switch
• Download a wait times app (Mouse WaitDisneyland App)
