It’s the family vacation that you’ve been looking forward to for over a year – it’s time to go to Disneyland! From the classic rides to the smiling characters and of course those delicious churros, it’s no wonder you’re wanting some time in the happiest place on earth. However, things are looking a little different at Disneyland right now, and it’s important for you to take the time to know what you need to do to make your first visit back a success. Take a look at some of our tips!
While it’s always a good idea to plan in advance when taking a trip to Disneyland, it’s even more crucial now. Due to COVID-19, Disneyland has implemented a new reservation system for park visitors. In addition to purchasing your tickets into the parks, you will need to reserve a slot for each person in your party for the park you’ll be visiting. This is how Disney is regulating the amount of people in each park to keep it at a reduced capacity. Without the reservation, you won’t be able to get into the park, so don’t skip this step!
It’s also important that you understand what the Covid regulations are in California. Things are constantly changing, and keeping yourself up to date on what you need to do while there will save some hassle. Whether it’s keeping masks on hand for your family or knowing to maintain a distance of six feet from others, do some studying ahead of time so that you know what to expect.
Disneyland has an app designed to make your day in the park that much more magical, and we highly recommend downloading it! You’ll be able to monitor your tickets, order food from various vendors around the park, access photos, and see what the wait times are at every attraction in the park. It will work wonders in helping you plan out your day, not to mention it will save you from having to walk as much!
Make sure you have absolutely everything you’ll need to make your time in the parks a success. Make a list and stick to it. Pack extras, especially if for your little ones. Just as important as packing your suitcases with care is making sure your diaper bag is properly prepped. Ensure that you have diapers, wipes, snacks, and extra outfits on hand. Throw in a portable charger and sunglasses for you, too!
Disneyland is the ultimate destination for making memories as a family. Make sure you're doing everything you can be prepared to make your trip there as seamless as possible. From making all of the proper reservations to packing all of the right supplies, it will all work together to make your family vacation unforgettable. Enjoy your time in the happiest place on earth!
