We were lucky enough to go on a VIP tour of Disneyland with Chris (the best tour guide ever) this weekend and it was an amazing experience. She pointed out out all the important and interesting facts about Disneyland, while guiding us through the park with ease on one of the hottest days of the year. To top that off she also managed to delight our kids with her friendly personality and revealing where some of the hard to find “hidden mickeys” were located in the park. Chris has created tours for princesses to groups that just wanted to focus on the thrill rides. I recommend a VIP tour to anyone that would like a more personalized Disney experience, you will not be disappointed and can find more information here. These are 12 of my favorite tips and hints from Chris (you can request to have Chris at your VIP tour guide when making reservations for your tour):

1) As you walk in to the Haunted Mansion look at the floor to find a spider web
2) Take the Train at the park entrance to avoid the traffic on Main Street
3) The Morse Code that you hear at New Orleans Train Station is from the opening day speech from Walt Disney
4) Indiana Jones has the most Hidden Mickeys
5) A Disney Makeover is a must for any little princess
6) There is great face painting available right outside of Big Thunder Mountain (in the Dia de los Muertos exhibit)
7) Try to time your eating around Fantasmic for a good view
8) If you go on a VIP tour you can see if there is VIP seating available that day for Fantasmic
9) Her favorite spot to eat is the Storytellers Cafe
10) There are large lockers in the back of each locker room for families
11) Fast Pass is seasonal for the Haunted Mansion and will be available until Christmas
12) Check out the Disneyland Blog to find out the latest news about Disneyland
