I’ve gone to Disneyland more times than I can count, so believe me when I say I know my way around. This Sidewalk is for adults who have bought a 1-day hopper ticket and are looking to spend a half-day at Magic Kingdom. I'll navigate you on a route that efficiently maximizes your rides and minimizes your time spent in lines, while discovering the best places to eat. Note: We'll split the day between Magic Kingdom and California Adventure. The 2nd half will be continued in a separate Sidewalk.

  9. Haunted Mansion

    It's difficult to come to Disneyland and not go to the Haunted Mansion and meet the 999 ghosts.

  11. Little Red Wagon
