You’re at Disneyland! You’re so excited! You’ve got a good plan(Check out my custom Disneyland plan packages here) and you’re using MaxPass(or Fastpass), but sometimes you’re going to have to wait in long lines. There’s just no getting around it. You need to have a game plan to keep kids(and adults!) happy while they are waiting. Don’t wander into a long line without a game plan! Here are some ideas to keep everyone happy while you wait.
1. Snacks and treats- Heading into a long line? Grab a snack or a treat to keep everyone occupied! It’s amazing what a churro or Mickey ice cream bar will do to lift spirits in a long line. I like to keep a small bag of suckers and smarties in my backpack to help keep littles occupied. I can’t tell you how many in line meltdowns have been avoided because I pulled out a bag of suckers!
2. Download the free Play Disney Parks app and enjoy some fun games and interactive activities. They even have games to play as a group! My kids love this!
3. Bubbles. There’s something magical about bubbles for a child. Pulling out bubbles when you spot a meltdown building can save you! Bonus points if they’re Mickey Bubbles! Be courteous of those around you, but in my experience bubbles make everyone happy!
4. Buy a copy of “Hidden Mickey’s of Disneyland ” before your trip and use it look for the Mickeys hidden all over the parks! You can find it here. rel=”nofollow”This is my big kid’s favorite way to pass time in line.
Probably the best way to keep everyone happy in line is to avoid long lines altogether! I can help! Check out my custom Disneyland planning packages.
