Disneyland insiders know that making the most of your first two hours at Disneyland Parks is crucial. This is not a time to catch up on your beauty sleep because the early bird catches the worm…or the coveted FASTPASS, in this case! Getting to the Park at “rope drop” and having a plan for your first two hours at Disneyland can mean the difference between walking on rides without a wait first thing in the morning or standing in queue for 90 minutes in mid-afternoon…Wouldn’t you rather maximize time at Disneyland?

Disneyland Tips to Make the Most of the First Two Hours at Disneyland!

Anyone who has been planning their big California vacation wants to maximize time at Disneyland! Making the most of a Disneyland morning is one of the better Disneyland tips. There are many things you can do ahead of time to make sure your travel plans go smoothly. Once inside the park, there are several important ways you can make the most of your first two hours at Disneyland. 

Splash Mountain at Disneyland

1. Get Familiar with the Lay of the Lands

If this is your first Disneyland visit, make sure you know your way around a bit before your trip. Study the park map online ahead of time so you aren’t wasting time on your park day wandering around. You can check out the Disneyland website before your trip to view the park maps.

Also it’s a good idea to add the Disneyland Parks app to your smartphone before entering the parks. WiFi is sketchy in the parks so you’ll want to download the app to your smart phone at home. Using the Disneyland app in the parks can save you a TON of time! You’ll quickly be able to find out the locations of characters, check show times, use Mobile Ordering and access MaxPass/FASTPASS reservations.

2. Choose Your Disneyland Vacation Dates Wisely

Making the most of your first two hours also depends upon the time of year you are visiting. During holidays and weekends, crowds are naturally heavier. Weekdays, particularly Tuesday and Wednesday in the “off-season” are your best bet for lighter crowds. These are ways you can figure out the Best Times of the Year to Visit Disneyland as well as be made aware of the Dates to Avoid When Planning a Disneyland Trip.

Disneyland hours vary throughout the year. During off-peak times or during some special events, the parks close much earlier. However Disneyland hours in the morning are usually still early, which means you can take advantage of the lighter crowds. Check the Disneyland website while planning to get an idea of the Disneyland park hours during your visit.

3. Have a Disneyland Plan of Attack

If you only have one day at Disneyland, then make sure you are making the most of the first two hours. If you have more than one day, I’d recommend taking at least one of your vacation days to follow this plan.

This doesn’t mean you should sleep until noon on the other days though. I still always recommend that you arrive at rope drop because crowds are considerably lighter in the mornings and you’ll be able to see and do so much more on your trip.

Before you even step inside the gates, I recommend coming up with your morning schedule. My friend Jessica at The Happiest Blog on Earth offers her tips on how to accomplish 10 rides in the first 2 hours.

Disneyland Morning Itinerary for Little Kids

With younger kids, I’d start in Fantasyland at Disneyland. You’re going to find the most rides without height restrictions in this area. None of the rides listed below have a height requirement so everyone (including babies and toddlers) can ride with an adult.

There are only two rides in Fantasyland that offer FASTPASS. The Matterhorn Bobsleds & “it’s a small world”. If utilizing MaxPass (and your child meets the 42″ height requirement), grab that Matterhorn reservation once you’re waiting in line at Peter Pan’s flight. Otherwise go for “it’s a small world”.

Follow these insider tips for your first two hours at Disneyland & Disney's California Adventure park and maximize your time!

If you want to accomplish rides in your first two hours at Disneyland, I recommend that everyone hit Peter Pan’s Flight first. There is no FASTPASS for this ride and waits are easily 45+ minutes the rest of the day. Even if you head to Peter Pan first thing, know that you’ll likely still spend 20-30 minutes waiting in the morning.

If you only have one early morning, I’d even suggest completely skipping Peter Pan’s Flight so you can do everything else. The rest of the rides in this area usually have minimal wait first thing in the morning. On a non-holiday season weekday, you can usually complete everything in Fantasyland within two hours!

Try going on rides in this order to maximize time and minimize lines:

  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Dumbo the Flying Elephant
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Storybook Land Canal Boats
  • Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride
  • Casey Junior Circus Train
  • Mad Tea Party
  • King Arthur Carrousel
  • Pinocchio’s Daring Journey
  • Snow White’s Scary Adventures
  • “it’s a small world”
  • Matterhorn Bobsleds (if your child meets the height requirement & you have a FASTPASS/MaxPass).

Disney California Adventure Park Morning Itinerary for Little Kids

With the removal of a bug’s land, there honestly just isn’t as much for little kids to do inside Disney California Adventure park. There are still plenty of things but not as many rides. Don’t skip the park but definitely do a height requirement check before your trip.  You’ll want to know which rides your toddler or preschooler will be able to ride.

If your child is 40″, grab a FASTPASS or schedule MaxPass for Radiator Springs Racers first thing. Then grab your Soarin’ Around the World FASTPASS immediately after. This itinerary will maximize your time but there is quite a bit of walking across the park. Consider a stroller for your little one so you can walk briskly!

Disney California Adventure Park Pixar Pal-a-Round Ferris Wheel

Try going on rides in this order to maximize time and minimize lines:

  • Toy Story Midway Mania (no height requirement, anyone can ride -FASTPASS)
  • Pixar Pal-a-Round (no height requirement, anyone can ride)
  • Radiator Springs Racers (40″+ FASTPASS)
  • Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree (32″+)
  • Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters (32″+)
  • Soarin’ Around the World (40″+ FASTPASS)

Disneyland Morning Itinerary for Older Kids, Teens & Adults

With older kids, teens or adults only, you’ll want to decide which direction to go first inside each Park. Big kids and grown ups will likely want to hit the thrill rides and “Disney Mountains” first, considering these often have the longest queues.

Each of these rides offers FASTPASS and MaxPass. Be strategic about scheduling your MaxPass while waiting in line and it will save you so much time! Because this itinerary is about maximizing those first two hours, there is a good amount of walking to cover the park. Make sure you’re wearing good walking shoes so you can move fast!

What About Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?

At this writing, reservations in a “virtual queue” are needed to enter Disneyland Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, a Star Wars-themed Land. Placement in the queue can happen via the Disneyland app or at designated kiosks inside the park. If you arrive early enough in the day you may not have to wait in the queue. When the app says, “Open”, guests can enter at any time and stay inside the Land as long as they wish.

Entering Oga’s Cantina is a must-do but you’ll also need to obtain a reservation time for this (and can do so on the app, once inside the park). Same for light saber making at Savi’s Workshop.

Choose a hilt at Savi's Workshop inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge
Customizing a light saber at Savi’s Workshop requires a reservation time.

The only ride currently open in Star Wars Land is Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Wait times vary dramatically for this attraction, from 30 minutes to 90 minutes on any given day. I highly recommend watching the Disneyland app to see what the current wait time is before jumping on board. 

Smugglers Run does also have a single rider option but I don’t recommend using it for the first time. You’ll miss the pre-show story, Chess room and likely not be given the chance to pilot.

Disney California Adventure Park Morning Itinerary for Older Kids & Adults

At Disney California Adventure Park, this itinerary will have you starting at the back of the park and moving forward. Same as at Disneyland, I encourage you to schedule your MaxPass while waiting in line so you’ll have a FASTPASS lined up.

Try going on rides in this order to maximize time and minimize lines:

  • Incredicoaster (48″+ FASTPASS)
  • Toy Story Midway Mania (no height requirement, anyone can ride -FASTPASS) *Use the shortcut through Pacific Wharf to access Cars Land
  • Radiator Springs Racers (40″+ FASTPASS)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout!  (40″+ FASTPASS)
  • Soarin’ Around the World (40″+ FASTPASS)
Insider Tips -Make the Most of Your First Two Hours at Disneyland
Grab that FastPass for Radiator Springs Racers first!

4. FASTPASS Saves Time (But There’s Something Better!)

First thing in the morning, lines are already at a minimum. But with each minute that the Park is open, crowds are filling in and what could be a walk-on attraction at first can quickly have a wait. I recommend grabbing a FASTPASS for highly coveted attractions first and then riding other things in that area before returning to redeem your FASTPASS.

Please note that you can’t get FASTPASS during Extra Magic Hour but as soon as the Park opens to regular guests, you can grab your first one. In order to collect a FASTPASS, you’ll need to have your Park ticket in hand and use one of the special FASTPASS kiosks located near the attraction.

Disneyland Tips for Maximizing Time and Using FASTPASS

  • Grab FASTPASS for Space Mountain and then go on Star Tours: The Adventure Continues and the rest of the rides in the Tomorrowland area.
  • Hit Adventureland by getting your FASTPASS for Indiana Jones Adventure, then ride The Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean and maybe even Splash Mountain and the Haunted Mansion before returning to redeem your FASTPASS.
  • Over at Disney’s California Adventure Park, your first stop of the day should be to grab a FASTPASS for Radiator Springs Racers. The FASTPASS kiosks are located at the entrance of Cars Land and not at the attraction itself. Then ride Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree and Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters until the FASTPASS time is ready.
  • Head over to Pixar Pier to get your Incredicoaster FASTPASS. Then get in queue for Toy Story Mania, take a spin on Pixar-Pal-a-Round and return back to the coaster to redeem your FASTPASS.

5. Disneyland MaxPass Is Even Better!

Save even more time by purchasing MaxPass. This allows you to “book” your FASTPASS reservations from your mobile device. You won’t have to physically walk to the ride to schedule the FASTPASS – you can do it from your smartphone through the Disneyland app. Once you learn the ins and outs of how MaxPass works, this can be one of the best Disneyland tips for maximizing time!

Once you’ve scanned your pass for an attraction you can schedule your next FASTPASS on the MaxPass app when waiting in queue – so convenient and what a time saver!

You’ll be using your Park tickets to redeem FastPass – Keep your Park tickets close at hand inside a coin purse on a lanyard, like these:  Mickey and Minnie Mouse Lanyards with Detachable Coin Purse

Early morning and the wait time for Radiator Springs Racers is low.

6. Single Rider

If you’re traveling with older kids or just adults, a true time saver and one of the the great Disneyland tips is using the Single Rider line. Only certain attractions have Single Rider and unfortunately, they don’t always have them open and available. If you see Single Rider lines open for these rides, definitely take advantage of them!

Incredicoaster at Disney California Adventure park
Incredicoaster has a Single Rider line

Your group will line up together and be chosen separately to fill empty spots on the ride cars. This means you will not necessarily ride with the rest of your group (and you cannot request to sit together). Single Rider works for families if you have older kids who don’t mind riding with a stranger.

At Disneyland:

  • Matterhorn Bobsleds
  • Splash Mountain
  • Indiana Jones Adventure
  • Space Mountain

At Disney California Adventure park:

  • Grizzly River Run
  • Incredicoaster
  • Goofy’s Sky School
  • Radiator Springs Racers

Follow these insider tips for your first two hours at Disneyland & Disney's California Adventure park and maximize your time!

7. Stay Onsite and Enjoy an Extra Magic Hour

Registered Disneyland Resort guests are treated to early entry for each day of their stay with valid park ticket. It is recommended to arrive one hour and 15 minutes before official Park opening. Not all rides are open during Extra Magic Hours at Disneyland. Be sure to check with your resort to find out what will be available.

The schedule for Extra Magic Hour is as follows:

  • Disneyland Park: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays
  • Disney California Adventure Park (including access to Cars Land): Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays

Save Money at DISNEYLAND!

Purchase discount tickets and vacation packages from my affiliate Get Away Today. Use the Promo Code REWRITTEN and receive an extra $10 off any 2-night or longer Southern California package. (Hotel and 2 ticket minimum purchase to qualify for the discount). 


Arrive Early to Security Lines

This Disneyland tip is one that many overlook but can definitely add time to your morning. A plus to staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel is that the security lines are generally MUCH shorter than the lines coming off of Harbor Blvd. Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa guests have their own security area that is usually very fast. Guests at the Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel have a security entrance that can be shared with overflow parking lots but it is still faster than those lines on Harbor. Make sure to save time in your morning to get through the security lines.

This is the security line for guests of Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier & overflow parking.

8. Magic Mornings at Disneyland

Guests with a valid 3+ day Park ticket (purchased ahead of their visit) can enter Disneyland one hour before official gate opening on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday. This is a great way to beat the crowds and enjoy select attractions even earlier. It is recommended to arrive one hour and 15 minutes before official Park opening.

My travel partner Get Away Today has sweet discounts on Disneyland-area hotels that are within close walking distance of the Disneyland park gates. You’ll often find specials including the third or fourth night free and complimentary breakfast at a less expensive rate than the Disneyland resort hotels.

9. Eat Breakfast Before You Enter the Gates

Breakfast at the Carnation Cafe is just lovely and Breakfast with Minnie & Friends at the Plaza Inn is Character dining perfection. But if you are trying to maximize those first two hours in the Park, stopping for a lengthy breakfast isn’t the best idea.

New Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland

I recommend that you grab your breakfast to-go outside the Park and eat it while you wait for the gates to open. The Earl of Sandwich and Jamba Juice are two great breakfast locations in the Downtown Disney District that are usually open before the Park gates. Grab a breakfast sandwich or a smoothie and nibble while you wait at the Park entrance.

However to truly maximize time at Disneyland, we usually eat at the hotel or on our way there. We often bring granola bars and fruit for our first meal and eat those at the gates. Then we fill up later with an early lunch.

10. Arrive for “Rope Drop”

Stroll up to the gates at Park opening time and you’ll see lots of people lined up already waiting to get inside. But arrive at least 30 minutes prior to Park opening and be one of the first allowed entry to Main Street U.S.A. Shops and some dining spots are open and you can visit City Hall, if need be (we always have to visit and pick up a DAS card on our first day).

At the end of Main Street U.S.A. you can line up with other guests to await the official “rope drop” or opening of the Park. What a great way to beat the crowds!

Insider Tips -Make the Most of Your First Two Hours at Disneyland
If you want Characters they are out in full force early in the morning and the waits are minimal.

11. Meet n’ Greets

If you want to guarantee photos and autographs with lots of Characters (without the extra expense of Character dining), then the first few hours of Park opening are the perfect opportunity.

As soon as the gates are opened, you’ll see several Characters hanging out in front of the brick wall. Pass through the tunnels and the Fab 5 are usually posted around the main hub, along with other favorites. On one visit we were able to Meet n’ Greet with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Pinocchio and the Mad Hatter within about 30 minutes.

In order to move things swiftly, have your camera ready and autograph book open with the pen prepped. You can also hand your camera over to the PhotoPass photographer if you’d like them to take a shot with your own camera.

More Disneyland Tips for Early Morning

Any other day I’d recommend you take your time and enjoy Main Street U.S.A. However if you are trying to maximize those first two hours at Disneyland, these are the things you should not do.

  • Don’t buy your tickets that morning. ALWAYS pre-purchase your Park tickets, have them in hand and avoid waiting in line at the ticket booth. I recommend my affiliate Get Away Today, who offers discounted Disneyland tickets and full vacation packages.
  • Don’t stop to shop. In fact, I recommend doing all or most of your souvenir shopping on an “off-day” and visit Downtown Disney District instead. Even better, save some money and purchase souvenirs ahead of time on ShopDisney.
  • Don’t stop at City Hall. Grab your “celebratory button” like those for birthdays or first visits after a few hours or get them on a day when you aren’t trying to maximize time.
  • Don’t stop for pictures. The exception being is if you have a clear shot of Sleeping Beauty Castle and can pose your family quickly in front of it. In that case, you should always get the photo!

Now Is Not the Time To…

More tips for making the most of the first two hours at Disneyland –

  • Don’t get in line at Starbucks. Seriously, this line will be a mile long in the morning. Grab your coffee at the hotel or at Downtown Disney District and bring it with you to save yourself the time in line at the Main Street USA Starbucks. Even better: Save time with mobile ordering at Starbucks in the Downtown Disney District (the Main Street USA location does not offer mobile ordering).
  • Don’t look at the Main Street windows. But most definitely come back this way later in the day to check them out, they are wonderful!
  • Don’t take the Disneyland Railroad. Though this is one of my favorite ways to start a Disneyland day (by taking the Grand Circle Tour) this isn’t how you should spend your first 30 minutes if you are maximizing your time. You’ll be better off on foot.

  1. I always tell my family”You can sleep when we get home”. While others are eating breakfast we are riding the mountains! Best tip is to always arrive at least 20 minutes before rope drop.

  2. We’ve just been to Disneyland twice, but the extra magic hour was critical for us to get to ride things as they don’t have as much Fast pass ability as Disney World. We loved rushing to Radiator Springs Racers and at Disneyland back to Fantasyland.

  3. I love your list of “don’ts” at the end. When one can get in so many more attractions in those first couple of hours because most of the crowd hasn’t arrived yet, it’s definitely best to maximize one’s time that way.

  4. Great tips! I’m taking my daughter to Disneyland in May and I haven’t been there in 12 years. I better study the map!

  5. After getting a FastPass for Radiator Springs Racers I would immediately gram one for World of Color, and then go grab a third Fastpass somewhere close by like Soarin’ Over California. Though you can only have one Fastpass at a time, Radiator Springs Racers and World of Color do not count towards that total, so you can have Fastpass to Radiator Springs Racers, World of Color, and any third ride all at the same time. Sometimes California Screamin’ Fastpasses are taken off the main network too, so you can get a Fastpass there and have 4 Fastpasses at once!!! It doesn’t hurt to try to get a California Screamin’ Fastpass after you get the other 3. – John Glass (author, 100 Things You Donโ€™t Want to Miss at Disneyland 2016; facebook.com/100Disneyland )

      1. RSR is actually connected now, though it was disconnected for quite a while. The only ride at DLR that isn’t connected to the system now is (totally randomly) Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters. Always grab a FP for that one (same spot as for Star Tours) and avoid even a shorter line!

  6. Gonna disagree with the Starbucks comment a bit. I totally agree with not stopping after rope drop. However, since Starbucks in both parks is before the rope, that’s where we choose to grab our breakfast before they let everyone in!

    1. We have usually had good luck with Starbucks before rope drop, though we do tend to choose less crowded days for most of our trips. I have never seen such efficiency in a Starbucks before. Our last trip, a few weeks ago, my son decided that he wanted to get a FP for RSR first thing, and we got into DCA about 15 minutes before rope drop. We decided to see how long the lines were at Starbucks and we ended up with just one person in front of us in the left line (there were more in the right line). We were in the crowd with more than 5 minutes to spare and got our FPs with no problem

  7. We live just a couple of hours away and are AP holders, so most of our trips are for one day. Therefore, we always aim to be there at rope drop to take full advantage of the lower morning crowds. We never have early access, since we use APs and don’t stay onsite when we do spend the night, but we always make the most of that time. We often stay right across the street from the gate to avoid using transportation at all, but when I do have to park in one of the lots I now head straight for Toy Story. It has been years since we used Mickey and Friends. I find that the shuttles load faster and are more plentiful there, and we nearly always are just walking right onto a bus and heading out. Occasionally we have even had an entire bus to ourselves.

    Before Hyperspace Mountain we almost always headed into DCA first, because Radiator Springs Racers is my seven-year-old’s favorite ride. We would position ourselves to the left side of the rope drop area, grab a FP for RSR, and then walk straight back to Toy Story Midway Mania, which has no FP and tends to get quite a line going. Generally you are only waiting 5-10 minutes at that point, so you are off quickly and can hit Screamin’ while it still has no line. If we are within 5-10 minutes (or beyond) our FP time for RSR, we walk over to grab a FP for Soarin’ before using our one for RSR. We like to have one ready to go if it’s not going to be too much of a time suck to get.

    My best tip for FPs at Disneyland (which has worked every time for us on light to moderate days), not needing to be done first thing in the morning, is to get a FP for the Haunted Mansion before you get in line for Pirates. Every time we have done this we are at most ten minutes out from our FP time for the Mansion and either take a potty break or head right over. Two rides for the line wait of one, even on a day when it’s only a 15 minute wait for Pirates!

  8. These are great tips. As a typical east coast Disney person it can be quite overwhelming understanding how Disneyland works.

  9. As a visitor from the east coast, it was no problem to be up and ready to go by rope drop. We got lots of stuff done in the morning leaving our afternoons free to hang out at the pool.

  10. I’ve lived in southern California all of my life. Growing up, my mom would take us out of school on Wednesday. We would ride all the kiddy rides during the day. At dinner time dad would meet us at the picnic area. Stuff our extra food in the lockers. And on to the bigger rides. These were the days when they had A, B, C, D and E tickets. I remember being around 12 and riding the cars all by myself. I think that I went around 3 times before getting off the ride. I miss those wonderful memories of going to Disneyland with my family. My birthday is extremely close to Halloween. The year i turned 50, my sister and I went tick-o-treating at Disneyland. We had a blast.
    Thank you Disneyland for All the wonderful memories of a truly magical place.

    1. Sweet memories Sherrie!! I remember tickets as well ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t gone to the Halloween party at Disneyland yet, it’s definitely on my bucket list! Thank you for sharing.
