Nerdventured: Planning Your Best Trip tp Disneyland
Start by Deciding When You Want to Go
One of the first things you’ll need to do when planning your trip is deciding when you want to go. Of course, you’ll want to avoid peak times like summer and holidays if you’re trying to save money. However, remember that some attractions are only open during certain times of the year. For example, if you want to see the famous pumpkin display at Halloween, you’ll need to visit during October.
Make a Budget
Another essential step in planning your trip is making a budget. You’ll need to factor in airfare, accommodation, food, and souvenirs. It’s also a good idea to have a buffer for unexpected expenses. Once you’ve figured out your budget, you can start looking for deals on flights and hotels. You can also look at some travel tips from Starpoint Resorts reviews.
Choose Your Accommodation
There are several accommodation options near Disneyland, from camping to luxury hotels. If you’re on a budget, consider staying in one of the cheaper hotels further from the park. However, remember that this will add travel time to your daily schedule. If you’re visiting with young children or you’re still a child at heart, you might consider staying at an official Disney hotel to take advantage of their amenities and early access to the park.
Figure Out How You’re Going To Get There
The next step is figuring out how you’re going to get there. If you’re flying, you’ll need to book your tickets and figure out transportation from the airport to your hotel (if necessary). If you’re driving, start mapping out your route and make sure you have all the supplies needed for the drive (e.g., snacks, map, first-aid kit).
Create an Itinerary
One of the most important things you can do when planning your trip creates an itinerary. This will help ensure that you make the most of your time at Disneyland and don’t miss anything important. Start by researching what attractions are available and then narrow down your must-sees based on interest and time constraints. Remember to factor in travel time between attractions and wait times for rides/shows. Once you’ve figured out your itinerary, be sure to leave some wiggle room for spontaneity!
Pack Your Bags
Now that everything else is sorted, it’s time to start packing your bags! In addition to clothes and toiletries, don’t forget essentials like sunscreen, rain gear, comfortable shoes, and a backpack or bag to carry everything in while sightseeing. You might also want to pack snacks and drinks, particularly if you have dietary restrictions or are traveling with young children who might get hangry mid-day. And last but not least, don’t forget your camera! Disneyland is a photo-taking mecca, so you’ll want to ensure you have plenty of storage space for all those memories.
Bon voyage, and have a magical time!
