My name is Kathy. I am a mom of 2 and BIG Disneyland fan. However, as much as I love Disneyland, I'm NOT a fan of wasting my time or money.
You can easily spend lots of both those things at Disneyland, so my goal every time I go is to SAVE time and money while still having a fantastic family vacation.
There are lots of simple Disneyland vacation tips and tricks that will make your trip MORE fun by letting you do LESS: less time in line, less energy on cranky children, less money on frustrating things like bad food, and less effort figuring out which rides to go on and when.
During my own personal research at Disneyland and time spent online combing through thousands of other people's Disneyland vacation tips, I have collected dozens of what I consider to be the BEST Disneyland tips. They save me time, money and aggravation so that each trip to Disneyland is the best.
