Disneyland Park decked out for Halloween
I haven’t been back to Disneyland since November 2019. In that time, I’ve missed the Happiest Place on Earth terribly. Well, we’re going back to Disneyland! My family and I (possibly accompanied by some friends) will be spending a day at Disneyland Park.
Model of Galaxy’s Edge
So many things have changed since our last visit, so I’m doing everything I can to familiarize myself with the way things are working at Disneyland now. All in all, we’re still expecting to have a magical experience, but it’s good to know what we need to do differently.
Disneyland Park decked out for winter
Under current Disneyland guidelines, masks will be required indoors for all guests. My family and I have found well-fitting masks that we are comfortable wearing for long periods of time. In addition, my daughter and I have eyeglass chains attached to our masks so that we can hang them around our neck when we are eating or drinking.
GETTING A RISE OF THE RESISTANCE BOARDING PASS
I’ve spent some time researching the best way to get a boarding pass for Rise of the Resistance, and I’ve also warned everyone in our party that it is highly possible that we won’t get one. I’ve downloaded the Disneyland app. I’m planning on switching to data well before we arrive at the front gates. And I’m trying very hard to explain to my family how imperative it is that we get to those front gates before the posted opening time.
Should I wear this mask?
Right now, the hours for our Disneyland day have not been posted, but by looking at comparable days, I’m working on the assumption that the park will open at 8:00am. This means we’re going to have to leave our house at, as my sister-in-law says, zero dark thirty. If we can get those coveted boarding passes, it will be worth it!
HEADING STRAIGHT TO GALAXY’S EDGE
My daughter has her mask picked out!
Even if we can’t get boarding passes, we’re planning on heading straight to Galaxy’s Edge as soon as the park opens so that we can ride Smugglers Run. I also want to be able to fully explore the area, taking in the sights and sounds and maybe even grabbing a bite to eat.
WE’RE GOING TO BE FLEXIBLE
We all know that plans can change on a dime. Disneyland procedures might change once again before our visit. We have no idea if we’re going to get boarding passes to Rise of the Resistance, or, if we do get them, what time that boarding pass will be good for. We also don’t know what the crowd levels will be like. So, perhaps more than on any previous visit, we know we’ve got to be flexible.
All in all, I can’t wait to get back to my happy place!
