MAGIC MORNING Disneyland Park: Guests with a 3+ day ticket can choose ONE day for early entry Tues, Thu, or Sat. EXTRA MAGIC HOURS for Resort Hotel Guests: Disneyland Park, Tue, Thu, Sat. California Adventure (including Cars Land) Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun. Radiator Springs Racers is open during early entry, but Fastpasses are not available during this time. More info here.
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 9.9 #10014 1-6-13 1:08AMLikeReply
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 447.1 #448 1-6-13 1:14AMLikeReply
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 271.1 #1073 1-6-13 1:19AMLikeReply
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 266.8 #1122 1-6-13 1:37AMLikeReply
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 #175 1-6-13 2:26AMLikeReply
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 271.1 #1073 1-6-13 4:46AMLikeReply
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 :) - cdeley 471.0 #416 1-6-13 7:43AMLikeReply
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 me...lol) 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 #3046 1-6-13 8:10AMLikeReply
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 #1417 1-6-13 8:16AMLikeReply
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 3552.4 #34 1-6-13 8:18AMLikeReply
yes as long as you plan it out right you might be able to get it done or close to it - Hendizl 2625.2 #41 1-6-13 8:26AMLikeReply
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 200.2 #1901 1-6-13 9:04AMLikeReply
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 #13406 1-6-13 10:05AMLikeReply
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 139.1 #2801 1-6-13 10:59AMLikeReply
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 #15503 1-6-13 2:13PMLikeReply
