Hi to all,
I am new here, my name is Erica from Brazil. I've never been to any Disney Park - except for a dinner in Downtown Disney in Orlando, couldn't make it to the parks due to a way too busy schedule.
In March I am going to So. Cal. and I don't want to tell the same old story - so close and didn't make to the parks. So I am going to Disneyland no matter what. It'll be a solo trip, though I am going to stay in a friend's place. My first solo trip ever. What worries me is that I don't have much time for planning. I am using my holiday break to plan everything, or most of it. That is why I need help, because time is against me.
Since Tuesday I am reading all I can about DLR and DCA. I'd like to do both, but my budget is really tight. So I am doing Disneyland only or both in one day. Is the latter doable? A friend and her parents are going with me to Disney, they live here and we'll be in California in the same days. My plan is getting there early in the morning and being the last to leave the park, splitting up and go to single riders lines and use Fast Pass as much as I can.
These are the attractions I liked the most, my priority list:
DLR - Autpoia (maybe), Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, Disneyland Railroad, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln (maybe), Finding Nemo (maybe, only if a miracle happens with the lines), Haunted Mansion (maybe), Indiana Jones, It's a small world, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Pirates of Caribbean, Sailing Ship Columbia (maybe), Space Moutain.
DCA - California Screamin', Goofy's Sky School, Luigi's Flying Tires, Mickey's Fun Wheel, Radiator Spings Racers, Soarin' Over California, Tower of Terror.
Of course, if we have time, I want to meet characthers, enjoy other attractions and such stuff. But if we don't have time, I'd be happy to do these attractions.
The day we are planning to go is on March 14th, a Thursday. It is the first whole day I'll have in California. Should I be worried about spring break? We don't have it here, so I am not sure about dates. Again, is it possible to do two parks, attractions mentioned above, in one day? If it is, what park to go first? I am guessing DCA, because I heard Cars Land lines are huge. What app should I stick to: Lines - I am not a subscriber - or MouseWait?
Any help is appreciated.
