My boyfriend and I (20 and 21) have been coming here every year since 2011. So we just came back a week ago from our 3rd annual trip. Disneyland is a place we hold so close to our hearts. We have had such an amazing experience every time we step through the gates. First tip is to use comfortable clothes and shoes. Keep in mind that you will be walking for hours. We spent 12 hours straight in the park one time from opening to closing. Do your research and check weather and best times to visit which is during the low peak season when kids are in school. Summer is the hottest, busiest and most expensive time to go. ALSO try to remember that this park is expensive food-wise and souvenir-wise, but i have not regretted spending big bucks here because this is an amazing place! My favorite in the world! Ive grown so attatched to DL. You must come at least once in your life. They add so much more things into the park all the time and it just gets better and better every year.

I can write 50 pages just talking about DL. But ill keep this short and to the point, just make sure you do a lot of research and look at reviews on hotels. It is worth the extra money to stay as close as possible to the park entrance.

DO NOT stay at Motel 6 in Disney Way. We have had so many bad experiences with the management there. Plus after a long day in the park, you will be so exhausted and a 10-minute walk WILL feel like half and hour.

If you bank with Chase, consider signing up for a Disney Visa debit card. The only difference between this and a regular Chase debit card is you get Disney perks! Look into it!
ALSO keep your receipts when you buy something in the park, and pay attention to special offers and coupons that print out at the bottom. And even if a coupon has expired on the time, still ask if you can use them, they most likely will still apply the coupon.

All the kids on our trip agree Disneyland is the highlight of our west coast romp. We went on a Saturday, and with the help of Ridemax, we were able to finish all the rides they wanted by 2pm, despite going on a Saturday.

Top 5 attractions for the teens were (excluding California Adventures):
1. Fantasmic
2. Indy Adventures
3. Star Tours
4. Parade
5. Pirates

We went to the park when school was still on to try and avoid crowds... we were unsuccessful. There were so many people you had to walk at the speed of the rest of the crowd. Some rides had over a 2 hour line, including many of the food outlets. We queued twice for the Indiana Jones ride, got almost to the front of the queue and then were sent away due to technical difficulties.

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but die hard disney fans that would really appreciate the shows.
