We’re Going To Disneyland!…HELP.

The time has come – we’re taking Annabel to Disneyland. Next week, in fact. I am ridiculously excited. More excited than she is, even, but that’s probably because she has no idea what “going to Disneyland” even means. I love rides and theme parks and general merriment, and Disneyland is the granddaddy of them all.

I know Annie is going to love the rides (and at over 36 inches tall, she will actually be able to ride a large portion of them), but I think she’ll get the biggest thrill out of meeting all the characters. Especially the Disney Princesses! I might get tears in my eyes when I imagine the look on her face the first time she sees Princess Belle (yes, I am overly emotional).

I grew up in Southern California, so I’m no stranger to Disneyland. My parents took my brother and me often when we were kids, and when I was in college I even had an annual pass.

But even with all of my personal experience, I have no idea how to tackle the park with a two-and-a-half year old. In fact, it kind of scares me.

There is a cool Verizon app that has a lot of cool features – the most useful being that it will tell you the wait time for each ride – but what do I with her while we wait? Should I bring a stroller or rent one? Are there changing tables in the men’s restrooms? Can I bring in my own snacks for Annie?

Basically, I need advice from all of you who’ve braved a Disney resort with a toddler – the kind of advice you can’t get from the website’s FAQ. Hellllllllp!
