[QUOTE=simplytall;1098683]We have never been to Disneyland and I am hoping my fellow MBer’s can impart some knowledge.
How are the crowds?
Is it similar to WDW peak & low times?
How are the lines?
Do they have a fastpass system?
How long do you need to cover both Disneyland and California Adventure?
Any information is appreciated.[/QUOTE]
Crowds vary; they’re similar to WDW, but I think that the spring break crowds cover a shorter period. And in CA, kids are still in school in early June, so that helps.
The lines are similar, and yes, they have fastpass. Works the same.
Three days is doable for DL & DCA… but four is better.
Carsland opens in DCA… to be announced. Could be June, could be later. The crowds will be 100% INSANE there. (Honestly, for the trip this summer we’re debating simply waiting on Carsland until next year. We’re still deciding. It’s also likely that if you’re staying on property, they’ll open Carsland to you earlier in the day than for regular guests. With only 3 hotels, that’s a whole different scenario from WDW.)
Also- staying on property they do have the equivalent of EMH some days. That’s great for touring Fantasyland, which always has longish lines and no FPs.
I just love DL. When are you thinking about going?
