Can you do disneyland and California adventure in a day? My friends and I plan on going jan 8, and the hours are 8am-10pm. I don't think we will have enough time in just 10 hours.. :(
::psst:: 8am-10pm.. That's 14 hours. Looky there... 4 extra hours right there. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM   1002.5 #233 1-6-13 10:10AM Like(2)  Reply
Unless you meant 10am-8pm, then yes you do only have 10 hours. Time to stock up on some red bull. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #233 1-6-13 10:11AM
Hours are 10am-8pm starting tomorrow, Monday January 7, during the week unless otherwise noted on the DL schedule. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2754.3 #64 1-6-13 10:37AM
Off to buy some red bull. 🏃 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #233 1-6-13 10:40AM
Most schools are back in session the 7th so there should be less crowds. Give it a shot, get a fast pass as soon as you can each time. You'll miss a lot running all day....hopefully you can come back and take your time another trip, there is so much to take in and enjoy. Pack snacks, eat in lines to save time. Have fun!! - DisneyMom13   749.3 #318 1-6-13 1:08AM Like  Reply
So true. The best time to do it is when kids are in school the park is it a little less packed and the lines are really short - Brisenofamily951  7.8 #14793 1-6-13 1:11AM
You could do it. Plan. Get fast passes. Do what's most important to you first. Carsland is a must and take some time to enjoy BUENA Vista St have a great trip. - sewedna   579.0 #413 1-6-13 1:14AM Like  Reply
You absolutely can but you have to be super smart about it. I hadn't been in 5 years and happened to make it to California and my aunt wanted to go but we only had a day so I was determined to see and do as much as possible! Make sure you get there before the park even opens. About a half hour or so. Typing this out would take forever so if you want you can DM me and we can set up a little chat or something. Long story short, We went on a Saturday smack in the middle of July And went on just about every single ride, saw fantasmic and the fireworks, and never waited more than 15 minutes on one ride. I'm dead serious if you want me to walk you through it as an option I am more than willing :) - Poisen_Ivy   464.1 #556 1-6-13 1:19AM Like  Reply
I have an AP, still go often enough, and still would like to know how you do it! Please DM me. :) - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1663 1-6-13 1:21AM
Wow that sounded a bit obsessive. Just listen to Sewdna... I'm kind of a freak LOL - Poisen_Ivy  464.1 #556 1-6-13 1:22AM
Haha you just made me feel all cool like. I DMed you :) - Poisen_Ivy  464.1 #556 1-6-13 1:33AM
I have a pass an try to go a lot too. I am also curious about your story! DM me if you can. Thanks - wickedale  441.0 #588 1-6-13 11:05AM
I don't have enough points to message you. I tried. - amberm87  5.6 #19093 1-6-13 11:30PM
Poisen_Ivy: can you dm me please :) - amberm87  5.6 #19093 1-7-13 5:52PM
I did that a year ago and didn't even used fast passes. I realized my husband and I went on all of the rides when we were leaving the parks lol the catch is to go on a day that its mostly empty. I think by the 8th it should be empty. Good luck :) - KladiaDisneyNinja   292.5 #1105 1-6-13 1:37AM Like  Reply
Off season is the best! - Poisen_Ivy   464.1 #556 1-6-13 1:40AM Like  Reply
It can be done in the off season - Chumash28   2222.8 #89 1-6-13 2:09AM Like  Reply
Unpopular opinion, but I don't think you can. Since DCA got revamped, each park really takes a day to go through. But that's okay if you don't do everything,maybe write out a list of rides in order of priority and then try to follow the list while still accounting for fast passes and which rides have longer lines during different parts of the day. And in my opinion, I wouldn't count on cashing in on the off season crowds. It is technically offseason, but since the opening of carsland, there hasn't really been an offseason. Just do your best and have a great trip! - ladylikesdisney   945.0 #242 1-6-13 2:26AM Like  Reply
Are you going to see every single thing and ride every single thing there is to ride and see every show and watch every attraction, no. Can you have a well rounded experience with a ton of rides and watch some shows and have a blast. yes. I've done it in the middle pf peek season - Poisen_Ivy   464.1 #556 1-6-13 4:46AM Like  Reply
And this was this year in July so cars land hadn't been open very long at all - Poisen_Ivy  464.1 #556 1-6-13 4:55AM
^ this. map out your day before going that always helped us before we had passes. either way have fun! - OhanaPhoto  7160.9 #22 1-6-13 7:26AM
I think you can make the most out of your day and have a great time doing it...have tons of fun when you go :) - TiggerBelle   534.5 #464 1-6-13 7:43AM Like  Reply
Thanks! :) my friends want to go to disneyland on Tuesday the 8th then the 9th go to Laguna beach. Then head home (bay area) Thursday. - amberm87  5.6 #19093 1-6-13 5:04PM
Personally,I find it difficult. But if you map out your visit to each park, and aren't too big on being looky lous (another hard thing for you probably can. But I warn you, on the drive home you'll already feel like youmissed out and will be planning a return trip. lol (um just a little tip...if youare doing any kind ofdistance driving, like a drive of 4 hours one way or more, make the trip worth it stay over night and really really get the whole experience of a park a day) - DumboGal70   122.8 #3361 1-6-13 8:10AM Like  Reply
Would focus on one park...there is no way you can get the experience of both parks in a day. Remember, experience is everything at Disney! - DLlovingMommy27   238.0 #1656 1-6-13 8:16AM Like  Reply
If you list the things you absolutely MUST do (the MW ToDo list helps!) and work off of that, it's possible. Just know that I've been going to the parks regularly for 22+ years and there are still whole areas of both parks I have yet to experience! Hehe The most important part is that you have fun! And that you at least say hi to Mickey 😉 - SPandEvLover   4846.1 #36 1-6-13 8:18AM Like  Reply
yes as long as you plan it out right you might be able to get it done or close to it - Hendizl   2956.8 #60 1-6-13 8:26AM Like  Reply
We went for 4 days last month and didn't get to everything, but we took our time and didn't have a plan. We also had many sit down meal experiences and took the time to meet lots of characters. Can't wait to do it again and see some new things. Good luck and just have fun. These Mousewaiters are smart and give good advice. - CheshireCam   251.1 #1486 1-6-13 9:04AM Like  Reply
I did that one time BUT it was during spring break so there was a lot more people, we weren't able to do a lot and we were just running all day long! I was exhausted at the end of the day. - diduarte   6.6 #16710 1-6-13 10:05AM Like  Reply
I just did both parks in one day, that's the only day we had between softball so we made a day of it! After my feet hurt and we were exhausted but worth it - lisaw   240.4 #1628 1-6-13 10:59AM Like  Reply
Yes I meant 10am- 8pm.. Thanks guys! I know I want to go on the cars ride at ca adventure. I'll try and convince my friends to buy a two day hopper. :) if not, I guess we will be rushed on Tuesday. Lol. ... Ps- the reason why they want to go one day is because we were thinking of going to Laguna beach the following day. Then head home thurs. We live in the Bay Area... - amberm87   5.6 #19093 1-6-13 2:13PM Like  Reply
