7 Insider Disneyland Tips from Annual Passholders

For any holiday, Jason and I always love to give experiences rather than “things”, which is why we decided Disneyland tickets for Valentine’s Day were better than flowers, or a steak dinner.

Since we hadn’t been to Disneyland in over 5 years and one of my best friends and her boyfriend (Alicia and Chris) are annual pass holders, we wanted to be shown the tips and tricks from the best.

So thanks to Alicia and Chris, we are able to share the below Disneyland tips to make your next visit as smooth as ours was.

Thankfully for us, Alicia let me know that Disneyland is currently having a SoCal Residents Promotion and we jumped on the three-day park hopper for only $259 per person.
