We had a wonderful time in Disneyland last weekend. The parks are very manageable (compared to the size of Disney World). So, it was nice to be able to do everything we wanted to do in just two days (including riding a lot of rides twice: space mountain, big thunder mountain, the matterhorn, haunted mansion, and buzz lightyear).
The lines were ok. Saturday early evening was a little crazy, but other than that it was ok. We saw the Fireworks both nights (9:25, but the park was open until midnight). And then Sunday morning, the park wasn’t supposed to open until 10am, but it was open early… So we went in and knocked out a few rides early.
Also, on Saturday, we had 6 free Fastpasses (Disney’s system that lets you head to the front of the line). This helped a lot! We were able to avoid a lot of line waiting.
Fun time! great weather. All pictures are here -> http://picasaweb.google.com/mike.helmick/Disneyland#
