Top 5 Tips for Visiting Disneyland in Big Crowds and Hot Weather

Cast members at the Disneyland Resort are always looking for ways to help a guest have the most enjoyable visit possible. Here are some tips, straight from Disneyland, on how to stay cool and have fun on a summer visit to the Disney parks.

  1. Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated.
  2. Shop between the hours of 2 and 4 p.m. when most guests are enjoying the attractions. Use Packet Express to send your packages to the front of the park or to your hotel room if your a resort guest.
  3. Go inside to get cool. Disneyland attractions such as the Enchanted Tiki Room, Pirates of the Caribbean and It’s A Small World make perfect places to get away from the heat. At Disney’s California Adventure, try the Golden Dreams theater, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or Soarin’ Over California.
  4. Check your guide map for specific times because the theme parks have extended summer hours and often have special entertainment.
  5. Make sure to bring your autograph book – that way you can prove that you really met Pluto!

Come to think of it, these apply to Walt Disney World too. What other tips do you have?
