Southern California’s Disneyland theme park is a great place to spend the day seeking thrills and making memories with your significant other. While there are always a lot of groups and families taking advantage of Disneyland and its neighboring park California Adventure, exploring with just one other person opens up a whole new world of opportunities and experiences that you just can’t take get when touring with a group. So to help those visiting the parks with their partner on a date or extended vacation, here are three ways you can get the most out of your Disneyland vacation when traveling as a couple.
Take Advantage Of Single Rider Lines
The popularity of the Disneyland Resort often leaves the property filled to the brim with tourists and visitors. This amount of people can make it difficult to maneuver around the park and can also cause you to have to wait in long lines for the attractions. But luckily for couples, there’s an option for getting onto rides much quicker if you’re willing to endure a little separation.
Single Rider lines allow park guests to use a shorter line than the traditional stand-by line in order to fill in extra space when the numbering of guests leaves spots available. For example, if a ride can fit five people and a group of four arrives, a single rider will fill in the extra seat, making the wait time for the ride much smaller. According to Vikki Turner, a contributor to TheMouseForLess.com, there are 8 rides with Single Rider lines available to park guests. Because these 8 rides are some of Disney’s most popular, you can skip a lot of the line, wait right next to your partner, and then snag a quick ride in an empty spot. And, if you’re lucky, there may even be two empty seats so you can ride with your significant other anyway!
While Disneyland’s meals are often more expensive than eating outside the park, the portions and quantities are generally large enough to share with one other person, making it the perfect way to experience park favorites without spending too much money. Julie Bigboy, a contributor to SavingUpForDisney.com, recommends eating at establishments like The Carnation Cafe, Flo’s V8 Cafe, the French Market Restaurant or the River Belle Terrace if you’re looking for delicious meals that will satisfy two hungry park-goers without putting too much pressure on your wallet.
Finding Romantic Spots In The Parks
Although the parks are generally busy all year, there are places you can visits to experience a more romantic side of Disney. Michele Himmelberg of the Disneyland Resort shares that some of the most romantic places around the parks include the World Of Color show in California Adventure, the Blue Bayou restaurant inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland, and the Mark Twain Riverboat. So if you’re looking for the perfect romantic way to end your day of fun at Disney, try winding down at one of these locations to get your true love’s kiss.
The Disneyland Resort is a fun and memorable way to spend a day with your romantic partner. Use the tips mentioned above to make the most of your time there together.
