Often times readers have some of the best tips. Here are a few of our favorites.
Like to ride Grizzly River Run at California Adventure but hate to have everything get wet – sometimes really wet. Did you know there are lockers just north of the fast pass distribution area for this ride. You can store those valuables such as cameras, cell phones, etc. that you really don’t want to get wet. Or if you think ahead, bring the large gallon size Ziploc bag (freezer ones are thicker than the regular ones). You can put your wallet, camera, cell phone, etc. in one of these and even “double bag” it to ensure those things don’t get wet.
When you buy a cup of coffee, be sure to ask if they give refills. Some places will refill your coffee all day if you keep your cup. At $3 a cup this can add up. Others have reported that they didn’t even have to go back to the same place. When they asked, the shop simply took their old cup and gave them a fresh one from their location. At $3 a cup for coffee, it would definitely be worth the ask.
One guest reported that they bought a balloon and it accidently floated away. They told a cast member who promptly replaced the balloon for them.
Use the single rider line. Splash Mountain, Indiana Jones, Radiator Springs Racers, Soarin’ Over California, California Screamin’ and Goofy’s Sky School all have single rider lines. If you don’t mind not sitting together, this can save you a lot of time. Cast members use this line to “fill in the holes” so there are not any empty seats on the rides. The single rider line tends to move much more quickly than the regular line.
It is always fun to share hints and tips from readers. Thanks for the suggestions and keep them coming.
