It’s a dream long nurtured by many of us, to visit Disneyland at least once in our lifetime. Most of us have slogged day in and out in offices to work towards an endless nothing, to give a name to a goal that does not even have a shape or destination. Thus, it only seems fair that we get to live our dream, probably that of witnessing the majestic castle of Cinderella in the Magic Kingdom or chasing our passion for a thrill on the Pirates of The Caribbean boat cruise in Disneyland. Now we cannot be certain that our dreams would materialise, but what we could do is be prepared if the opportunity presents itself to us, and embrace the good with open arms. All of these deep, intense philosophy that you have just read is only to broach the subject of the essential tips that one must follow while visiting an amusement park. The interested lot out there, read on; and the ones who are not, read on anyway.
Reach early, like really early
Okay, so first things first. No person in their right minds would want to wait in line. No, not even if it is for the world’s most loved amusement park. Thus, reach super quick, even before the gates open. It is just going to enhance your amusement park experience. Do not laze around, because you have put in a lot of money, effort and time just to be here. Amusement parks, especially the ones like Disneyland and Universal Studios do not know a dull day. Thus, you need to be there before everyone else, or at least try to, to avoid the bubbling crowd.
Buy your tickets beforehand
This part is non-negotiable. The Internet has been a boon to humankind, so make use of it. Buy your tickets for the entry to the park online, since almost every amusement park provides online links to buy tickets. This way, you do not have to wait in line for long hours to buy your ticket and can make an entry pretty quickly. You will also have more time to explore every nook and cranny of the park.
Get it all chalked out
For every plan to work out without impediments, you need to have another plan. Think of it as a blueprint. Do your research before you leave for the day and know exactly where and when you need to be. Amusement parks can overwhelm you and leave you breathless. Thus, it is important to have your steps marked out, lest you will just be wasting time.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes
Ditch those heels and skin-tight jeans and slip into something more comfortable. I’d suggest you instead go for classic sneakers. Nothing kills the fun and sport like uncomfortable shoe bites and clothes that leave you gasping for air. It is an amusement park, so it needs no mention that you will have to walk and run around a lot because if that is not what you are doing, you are doing it wrong!
Keep your electronics charged
Do I even need to spell this out? I mean, you have not travelled all your way to Disney World, only to find that your phone or camera charged out. So charge those electronics the night before you leave and bring back the coolest pictures home. Memories are all we have at the end of the day.
Follow these few tips, and you are good to go. A visit to an amusement park, after a long and arduous journey, should be worth every penny. Do not let trivial things ruin your joy!
