I’ve lived in Southern California most of my life. I was born here and grew up within walking distance to Disneyland and I have been, in my best approximation, over fifty times. I have been there on special company events, grad night, holidays, busy times, not so busy times, and rainy days. Here are a few tips I’ve picked up along the way on how to make the most of your day at Disneyland.
Always try to ride Space Mountain first thing in the morning or try to make it your first fastpass of the day. It is common for the fastpasses to go quick on this ride. I have even seen the return time for 5pm early in the morning. As the day gets later, the line gets longer. The last time I was at Disneyland, I was able to ride Space Mountain three times with a fastpass. This is generally unheard of, but I was able to do it because two other time I got the “golden ticket” through MaxPass.
