get to the park early
this tip applies to most attractions but basically the best thing you can do when planning a trip to Disney is to get to the park early. The ticket booths open about half hour before the gates open so, if you're in line with your tickets already in hand when the gates open you'll be able to ride some of the non-fastpass rides like Dumbo the Flying Elephant and the Matterhorn Bobsleds before the lines get long.
save money money
to save money money it's best you stay at a hotel close to the Disney Resort, though make sure they offer free parking and breakfast...otherwise it won't work out cheaper than parking and breakfast at Disneyland if you drive in for the day.
shuttle to Disneyland
also, if you're checking in the same day, most hotels will let you park at the hotel in the morning, which means you can take the shuttle to Disneyland, come back for a rest, then shuttle back to the park. Also, if you time it right, you might be able to have breakfast when you drop off your car.
avoid school breaks
I'd definitely suggest not going to DIS during school holidays...also, avoid school breaks and half terms, you'll most certainly get a cheaper package price that way and you won't have to spend a lifetime lining up
don't buy anything in disney
my best tip would be not to buy anything in disney to avoid being ripped off. Take a few snacks with you
and don't listen to people who say Disney will the food off you at the entrance gates because it isn't true. Also, do this with drinks and water, don;t buy it there and you'll save a small fortune.
Arrive just before the park opens in the morning though even then you will find a a waiting line of visitors but thats the best to do with as you will get a chance to take the best rides early morning before the crowd starts to saturate
You must allot your whole day in visiting Disneyland. Depends on the season, but normally it will take time in queuing in just one ride.
Disney land may look like a straightforward theme park. But thereâ€™s a secret world hidden behind the balloons, castles and cotton candy â€“ a place where wild cats roam the park at midnight, Mickey Mouse hides in the wallpaper, and movie stars sip martinis behind closed doors.
