Disneyland Resort

Start Your Day At Disneyland in Fantasyland

Any guidebook you read will tell you that you should

begin your day at Disneyland enjoying the attractions

found in Fantasyland. There are several important

reasons as to why this advice is given, and it is

advice that you should strongly consider following.

Disneyland in Fantasyland

Fantasyland is one of the most popular areas at

Disneyland because there are no age or size

requirements. The only height restriction is a 35

inch requirement for the Matterhorn. As the day

progresses, Fantasyland will fill up. Getting there

first thing in the morning will help you avoid the long

lines that others will encounter later in the afternoon.



None of the attractions in Fantasyland have

FastPass. This is another reason why you

should go there first. FastPass allows you to more

or less ‘set an appointment’ to ride certain rides

but none of the attractions in Fantasyland have this

option. Cover Fantasyland first, then go get

FastPasses for the other attractions that you want

to ride.


Arrive early

The crowds and the lines will start growing within a

few hours of Disneyland opening each day. Make

sure that you arrive before the park opens so that

you can be one of the first ones through the gate

and head straight to Fantasyland before going

anywhere else.


Guidebooks suggestion

Since all of the guidebooks suggest this, many

other early risers will also be headed for Fantasyland.

Even so, the lines won’t get really long for two or

three hours, and by then, you will have already ridden

all of the rides there.

Collecting Fastpass tickets

From Fantasyland, you should start collecting

FastPass tickets for the other attractions that have

FastPass throughout the park. It is best to collect

these early in the day the longer you wait, the

longer it will be before your appointed time comes

around, depending on how many FastPasses have

been issued for each ride.


The First FastPass

While you are waiting for the appointed time for your

the first FastPass, you should enjoy other attractions,

visit the shops, or get a snack. Times between

FastPass appointments are great for visiting the

restrooms or sitting down to rest with a cool


Start Point

Just remember that in order to enjoy the most

attractions at Disneyland you should start with

Fantasyland, followed by gathering FastPass tickets.

Enjoy other attractions between FastPass attractions,

but make sure that you don’t put yourself on such a

tight schedule or such a rigid itinerary that you forget

to have fun! Some people simply like to spend some time wandering around the park.
