It’s almost sacrilegious to think that more than seven million people travel to Disneyland every year in the United States alone! The warm climate, the free entertainment, the shopping, and the friendly people make it irresistible to visit this world famous destination. But what a lot of people don’t realize is that Disneyland has a lot more to offer than just theme parks. In fact, they have far more to offer than any other theme park on the planet! And now the Magic Kingdom is expanding to a second Disney World in Orlando, which offers even more value for theme park lovers!
B. Every year, vacation shoppers spend billions of dollars at their annual trips to Disneyland, the Caribbean, Latin America, Southeast Asia/Pacific, and Canada. Travel gifts for these travelers are an excellent way to commemorate their annual travels to Disneyland. From gift baskets filled with items themed with their love of Disneyland to collectible mouse collectibles to whimsical photo frames and key chains, Disneyland truly has something for every guest on their gift list!
C. Who doesn’t love the magic of California? Whether you enjoy surfing, golfing, or the local cuisine, the Golden State is a state of mind-blowing adventures. While there’s no disputing that California is a magical place, especially for travelers who love to get out and about and experience new cultures, nothing says “California” like a trip to Disneyland and the surrounding area. Day 1 of each visit to the theme park will introduce each park’s newest attraction as well as offering park hours of fun and entertainment. For a day full of excitement and fun, day 1 at Disneyland is one of the best ways to spend a travel day. The parks offer phenomenal dining options, museums, meeting spaces, water rides, theme park shows, and shopping.
D. When it comes to packing for Disneyland, it makes sense to go lightweight! There are no bags permitted to be brought into the theme parks, so your packing needs to include at least some items that can be used for an emergency. Keep these tips in mind when packing for Disneyland to ensure your safety and comfort.
E. Pack snacks for yourself and/or your family. There are a variety of snack options available at Disneyland, including everything from popcorn and nuts to energy bars and gourmet foods. If you have a sweet tooth, don’t worry because you can easily carry a few bottles of ice cream, gum, or other sweets with you every time you visit the parks. You will also save a great deal of space by carrying food in small packages like snacks.
F. Be aware that not all of your Disneyland travel gifts are allowed inside the park. There are strict rules regarding several different things, including backpacks, coolers, cameras, and other items that could be considered potentially dangerous or damaging to other Disney guests. Before you pack your bags for Disneyland, be sure to check with the parks to see what the no-packs policies are. By doing this, you can ensure that your travel gifts won’t get tossed or lost and you can rest easy knowing that they’ll be safe as you head to and from the parks.
G. Think healthy when packing snacks for Disneyland. Even though many hotels offer convenient take-out food options, nothing beats having fresh, warm, fresh food right at your fingertips every time you head out to the theme parks. And while it may seem tempting to bring candy, bottled water, or chips, those types of purchases add unnecessary bulk to your luggage and can make your trip a little less enjoyable (not to mention costly). Instead, pack plenty of fruits, yogurt, nuts, or dried fruit. Don’t forget dried fruit snacks at the parks, either. Pack cinnamon rolls, cookies, or other treats that you can enjoy even when you aren’t riding the hot-air balloon or visiting the various Disney shops.
H. Have fun! The most important thing about a vacation is having fun! By taking the time to plan ahead, pack travel-friendly, useful items, and eat properly, you can make the most of your visit to Disney. But the most important thing of all is to enjoy yourself!
