10. Getting the drop on early morning action
There’s no better way to start your Disneyland Park visit than to do so bright and early. This is the time when you experience less crowds and shorter wait times at even the most popular attractions. And those who arrive before the park’s official opening may even get to see the official Rope Drop. Try to get there at least a half hour prior to the official opening time, because on select days the gates will open 10 to 15 minutes early, allowing Disneyland’s most punctual visitors entry onto Main Street USA for some pre-attraction delights like shopping, fueling up on coffee, or grabbing a quick bite to eat. Then it’s time for the rope drop and to “Let the magic begin!” Just like that, you’re all set for a magical daylong park visit.
