And now… Make sure your visit to The Happiest Place On Earth is a memorable one.

15 Disneyland Travel Secrets revealed by Jet Pet Resort

  • To help you prepare for your trip Disneyland will send you a free Disney Parks Vacation Planning DVD.
  • MUST DO: If it’s your child’s birthday or first time at Disneyland visit the Guest Relations office to get a special button.
    • If there’s a long line for the ticket booth you can forgo the wait by buying tickets with your mobile device.
  • Buy princess dresses, pirate costumes, and Mickey Mouse T-shirts before you get to Disneyland.
  • MUST DO: The Fastpass system is free and, more importantly, can be gamed a little. The machines that dispense Fastpasses may look like pay machines, but they’re not. Also, the FastPass systems at Disneyland and California Adventure are not connected, so it’s possible to hold more than one FastPass at the same time.
  • MUST DO: If your child is especially excited about meeting Disney characters, make a reservation for a Disney character dining experience. It’s free and there is no lineup. They come to your table!
  • The “rider switch” policy lets both parents enjoy the attractions without the double wait.
  • Three restaurants inside Disneyland give free refills on soda and a to-go cup after the meal is over. These restaurants are the Plaza Inn, Rancho del Zocalo, and Pizza Port.
  • Tweet @DisneylandToday and @DCAToday to get quick responses to your park-related questions.
  • The Disneyland Wait Times app will let you know how busy the rides are throughout the day.
  • Photopass photographers will take free photos of you with your camera if you ask them too.
  • If you stay at a Disneyland Resort hotel and have a valid three-plus-day ticket, you can get into the park one hour before the general public.
  • Once a day the Mad Hatter and Alice play musical chairs with kids at Coke Corner on Main Street, also known at Refreshment Corner.
  • Disneyland employees will give you a new balloon if your kid’s pops.
  • MUST DO: The easiest way to get a photo with Mickey Mouse is by visiting his home at Toontown near closing time.
