4 Days In California – Disneyland Main Street

Started the 4 days with a super early flight out of Salt Lake City. From there went directly to Disneyland after renting a car. As this was Labor Day weekend Disney was swamped with tourist and the weather hovered at 100 degrees.

Unlike Disney World in Florida with acres of parking lots, Disneyland has a parking garage. Cost $25.

I parked in the Minnie area and whenever parking in a large garage or lot I always take pictures of the signs near the parking spot as well as a picture of the car with the license plate. This helps after a long day when your memory falters. Taking pictures of the license plate also avoids attempting to get in the wrong car.

While I investigated much of Disneyland prior to the trip found reservations were needed once there. A young security guard navigated me through the Disney site for reservations. Thankfully there was an opening so I could visit. WHEW! After flying out with Disneyland as my major destination can you imagine if I didn’t get in??? What a disappointment that would have been. While the security guard also downloaded the AP for me I was unable to understand how to use it so hopefully if you bring children they will know. From the parking garage to the main gate is a very long walk, wear comfortable shoes, and bring an empty water bottle for refill as water at the park is $5. Visitors are allowed to bring food into Disneyland so do so. Prices are high, my ticket was $160. for the day, however it’s once in a lifetime.

Main Entrance

Disneyland was ablaze in decorations for Halloween.

Main Street – some sites not to miss with no waiting. Recommend catching them when leaving the Park, but be sure to stop. #1. Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln

#2. The Firehouse

#3. Cartoon theater with early Disney.

And the rest of Main Street…

The Castle is at the end of Main Street. How beautiful.
