ow to get around Disneyland can be simple and I will help you when I tell you how I do it. I have been going to Disneyland for years. I have gotten a lot of tricks to get around the park.
Getting into the park. If you want to get into the park right when the
park opens, you want to get there at least a hour before because the
gate open early, but not the whole park is open. They do this to so it
doesn't get too crowded. When the gates opened Main Street is the only
thing that is open. Then around 9-10 am is when they will open the rest
of the park. The have a ceremony the is called "Rope Drop." They have a
rope at the beginning of the HUB and at Adventure land. When they do
this they have a count down and then the rest of the park is open. When
this happens everyone rushes to there favorite ride. Disney has rules to
this. No running. So the key is walking fast.
Now everyone had
their route they like to do. Ones that stand over the HUB and heading to
Fanstyland or Tomorrow land. But I have my own route to take. I like to
go to Adventure land first. I have a route I do all the time. I do the
same three ride before doing anything else in the park.
I like to
head to Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom first. The is a ride that a
lot of people like to head to right away. This ride has a history of
going down a lot. Also the Standby lines can get long was the day goes
by. My little secret is to go to the Single Rider way. To go this way
you have to ask a Cast Member to get a pass. Not too many know about
this way but if you do get a pass you can go though the exit to get in.
second ride I like to do is Pirates of the Caribbean. This is one of
the oldest rides in the park. Even if I have done it countless times
before I like to go on it. There is no Fast Pass or Single Riders line.
As the day goes on the lines can get very long. Since I have ridden it
so many times I like to look at all the different things. There are some
interesting touches. there are some things that are over looked. When
you get to the area that has the skeleton in the bed. Notice the Head
Board. Walt Disney was given that as a gift. Another thing that is over
looked is that in the whole ride there are three menorahs. There is a
little fact that people don't know. I just learned this. When the ride
first opened Disney went to a Medical School and borrowed skeletons for
the ride. When they were able to find fake skeletons they returned the
skeletons to the School.
The third ride I do is The Haunted
Mansion. I have on it so many times I know the Ghost Host park by
heart. There are some things that people don't know and is that The
Stretching Room doesn't go down. The ceiling goes up. When I get to the
loading area I like to snipe a couple a pictures and when I look at
them after. There are countless numbers of Orbs.
After I do these
three rides I can continue the rest of my day. So when going to
Disneyland, get there early. Instead of going to the Right like the
crowd go to the Left.
Next post will be on California Adventure.
