Disneyland is aptly named—it’s an entire land of enchantment, fun and entertainment! Narrowing down what you want to do at the Anaheim Disney attractions can be challenging, and it’s easy to miss out on some incredible adventures, even if you’re a seasoned Disney vet. For little ones who love animals, don’t miss out on the Big Thunder Ranch Petting Zoo at Frontierland, where you can get up close and personal with some cuddly, lovable critters.
When riding the Disneyland Railroad, (an obvious must!) ask if you can sit in the tender seat. If you’re lucky, you’ll be escorted beyond security to the very front where there are tiny, hidden seats yours for the taking! The same goes for the Mark Twain Riverboat—simply ask and you’ll probably be able to steer it!
A Not So Small World
Immediately when the park opens, head over to Main Street Station and get a reservation for the Lilly Belle train car. Named after Walt’s wife, it’s incredibly decorated and fills up fast. Get your name in first and you’ll feel like the real Belle (or Cinderella…or Ariel…) of the ball.
When in the Mad Hatter gift shop, feel free to check yourself out in the mirrors. The Cheshire Cat just might appear. There are endless surprises to be found at Disneyland. What’s first on your list?
