In this episode, Megan & Kris give Five helpful tips for families visiting Disneyland.

 

Five Family Disneyland Tips

Tag your stroller for easy ID at a distance.

There’re a couple ways we do this. Our favorite way to do this is to drape a blanket over the top and the stroller handle. This does two things: it makes our stroller stand out visually from the others and it also covers up what we may have in the stroller. We never keep any valuables in it, but why provide temptation to anyone to go snooping, right?

 

Save on souvenirs by purchasing them before your visit.

This is a great way to save money at the parks. Instead of buying souvenirs there, buy them before you go, at places like Target, the Disney Store (clearance), or anywhere else, locally, that might have Disney merchandise. Then, bring them into the park with you and give them out while you’re there! Your kids don’t need to know that you didn’t purchase them on Disney property. Here’s the magical phrase: “Hey, look what I got you!”

 

Write your phone number on your children.

The bottom line here is to make sure you can be contacted if your kids get lost. This can be done in many ways. You can buy bracelets that you can write contact and identifying information, use a sharpie to write your number on the hem of their shirt, or a pen to write on their arm.

 

Free Samples!

Both Ghirardelli and the Boudin Bakery give free samples when you walk in. Feel free to visit the bakery, grab a sample of freshly baked sourdough bread, and learn how it’s made by watching the instructional video and observing the cast members work. Then, walk across the way into the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate shop where you’ll receive a free chocolate square for dessert! (Also feel free to buy one of their delicious creations!)

 

Free Ice Water!

Free ice water can be found in the Disney parks from restaurants that offer fountain drinks. Just go in and ask! Filtered water spigots are available in the Baby Care Centers at both parks as well as at Rancho del Zocalo, the French Market, and Tomorrowland Terrace restaurants. Still tasted gross, so bring water flavoring.
