If it'sreally busy, yes, if you don't know the park or much about it, yes.
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
Yes, if you feel like criss-crossing the park about 20x more than you normally would. They set up a schedule, and usually, the attractions tend to be on opposite sides of the park. If you have small children, then I wouldn't recommend it, but if you are up to A LOT of walking, and you want to wait in no lines, then yes, it is worth it.
I know a lot of the park at least from these forums and got a good plan of attack for Thursday June 18th this year:
Arrive at Rope Drop
1 - Ride Peter Pan's Flight
2. Ride Alice in Wonderland
3 - Ride matterhorn bobsleds
4 - Get Fast Pass for space mountain.
5. Ride Splash Mountain
7. Ride POTC --- or get fastpass Indy
8. Ride BTMRR --- or get fastpass Indy
----Get fastpass for Indy by now.
(Blue Bayou somewhere in here for lunch)
9. Sleeping Beauty's Castle Tour
10. Ride Space
(Ride / do anything else we want to until Indy's fastpass time)
11. Ride Indy
Go to DCA around 4:00
at DCA -
1. Get Fastpass Soarin
2. Ride TOT
3. Ride Screamin'
4. Ride Toy Story Mania
5. Ride Mul Madness
6. Ride Soarin'
When I get home, I will punch this up in my Ride Max and see how it goes. I will let you know if that is a good plan according to Ride max. I have used it, and I have not. I perfer to use it.Do you plan on going back to Disneyland AFTER DCA?
I think it mostly depends on you & what you want to make of your 1 day in your life. If literally seeing & doing everything is a priority to the extent that your life is ruined if you missed something on your one day @ Disneyland, then it might be worth it. Otherwise, just enjoy doing what you want to do.

I would say no. I tend to not want a regimented schedule of events when I'm at Disneyland. With some common sense you can get on pretty much everything even on a busy summer's day.
Get on rides with short lines as you pass them... ride Fantasyland rides early morning, late evening/night, mealtimes. FastPass is your friend.
Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
