I'm new here, so hello, and thanks for reading this! I was hoping to get some advice from some experienced Disneyland visitors. We are coming to CA from the East Coast in August for a wedding. We are building in a 3.5 day visit to Disneyland. We know it's going to be horribly crowded, but it is most likely a once (maybe twice!) in a lifetime visit for us and we want to be sure not to miss it. We are fairly experienced WDW visitors but I'm clueless when it comes to DL. We arrive on Sunday and I'm not sure we'll make it to the park that day (that would be the .5 day if we did!)....and then we'll be there Mon, Tues and Weds.
We will have one Magic Morning and one Toontown Morning Madness entrance. I'm trying to fit in a character breakfast or lunch and am having trouble figuring out when to do it. A 2 hour breakfast seems like a really long time first thing in the morning when we could try to get on the slow line rides quickly. And "wasting" our Magic Morning at breakfast also seems like a bad idea.
Any advice? We were hoping to eat at either Minnie's or Goofy's meals. Any help for a good way to plan it out to maximize our time on some super-crowded days? Thanks so much!!
PS It will be me, my husband, DD 16, DS 12 and DD 4. Thanks!
