    Proper footwear is important when visiting Disneyland. You'll want to make sure that you wear shoes that are comfortable and won't leave your feet tired after only a few hours of walking around. While fashionable shoes like nice on your feet, they're not always the best choice. Comfort is key!

    If you would like to avoid the long wait lines at Disneyland, you should visit your favorite attractions and acquire a FastPass (or, check it out in their handy dandy app!) , which essentially allows you to make reservations on rides. Nice deal, right?

    But be warned, if you attempt to take a bunch of FastPass tickets at once, you won't be allowed to. The machines have systems in place to prevent that from happening. In addition, you should also note that not all rides offer FastPass.
