As an old Disneyland Annual Pass holder, I have identified what is worth doing and when to do it in these Disneyland Plans. You can do these with or without an infant.
For those of you who don’t know, I used to be a very avid Disney goer! We had Annual Passes and would fly out often to go enjoy three or four days at a time. Those days are in the past. Now we have a little one and only one or two days to visit the parks! I put together a little plan for our family and I thought you may benefit from it as well.
Without giving you two much of a spoiler, basically you just need to be at the parks when they open to make the best use of your time. The busiest times for the parks are between about 2-5 so that’s when I’d suggest heading back to the hotel for a nap.
Also, don’t forget about rider swap! Rider swap is where one parent waits in line, and the other waits with the infant. Once the parent on the ride is done, the other can go through the exit and get right now. This was great but we didn’t use it all that much because we had so many fast passes and it was essentially the same thing.
Let’s talk MaxPass! If you are in the parks for only one or two days, paying an extra $10 was definitely worth using the MaxPass. You will get many more Fast Passes this way. Plus, the ability to not have to walk all the way to a Fastpass distribution center was amazing. Also, you can get Fastpasses through MaxPass that aren’t available any other way! Matterhorn and Toy Story’s Midway Mania both had Fastpasses only through MaxPass!
