- Wear your comfiest shoes. Believe me, you won’t regret choosing comfort over beauty when your feet are covered in blisters and refuse to move the next day.
- Carry snacks. Nothing in this world is free, specially at Disneyland. So unless you’re willing to spend five times more on snacks that you normally would, I’d suggest you be well stocked.
- Use portable chargers. You will need them. You might also want to make sure that you have internet roaming because even though you think, “I won’t use my phone in Disneyland”, you’re wrong.
- Don’t buy things you do not need. I know that mickey mouse pencil is irritable but it costs 5 euros and you’ll lose it in a day.
- The characters are people. Give them a break. I’ve seen so many people stand in line and then get cranky and screechy when the characters leave after their shift. I know it isn’t fair. I know you were waiting. But they’re humans and as fun as it looks, that chip and dale costume is not comfortable.
- Make sure you have a small bag with you, preferably something you can sling on or have on your shoulders. Make sure it isn’t too big because it would be inconvenient for some of the rides.
- You won’t be doing all rides. Make sure you get a program pamphlet and a map that highlights all rides right in the beginning so that you know what you want to do. Each ride has about an hour or so of waiting and you can’t use unlimited fast passes in a day. Organize yourself well.
- Try to stay positive. The amount of people at Disneyland can be overwhelming, or similar to a regular market day in India. It’s so easy to forget about Disney’s magic when the sweaty people with babies (why would you even bring babies to Disneyland? You’re a disgrace to the millennial community) in their arms kill the charm.
