People tend to check in during these times:
I miss the old CALIFORNIA sign! :(
It's actually a decent place to watch the fireworks.
Pls treat the Cast Members doing Guest Control kindly!
You rent your strollers and wheelchairs to the left of the Disneyland gates on the outside of the park, not inside.
Jump over wall to avoid security.
This "area" BLOWS! Bring your patience if you ever are scheduled to work here. Shifts can feel like forever if you work too fast.
Thank you Linda at booth 7 today for being so helpful! Nice to meet a good Cast Member :)
This is where you can buy tickets if you want them
If you need tickets (and didn't buy them online in advance...) walk all the way around the booths to see if there are open windows on the far side. Don't just line up behind everyone else.
Someone bring a scrapper to clean the gum off mary's name!!
Good meeting place for your party!
Look for the shortest line to get through faster
Don't forget to bring goldfish and pretzel M&M's!!
The lines get bad fast.
If the lines for the ticket booths are too long on a busy day, buy your tickets at Guest Services between the lockers and the Disneyland turnstiles.
Come with nothing
Some cast members look throughly through your purse. Some just glance in and wave you through. You never know who you're going to get.
Great open area to meet up with members of your group - direct access to bot parks, downtown Disney, picnic area and exits
If you can afford it, and you live in the area, go for the year pass. That way, you can avoid this bland signage and all the tourists.
These are clean bathrooms and no lines.
A Disney Brick is a locals gift that never gets old. exciting every time we see it!
Welcome to banishment...
Nice helpful and friendly people
If you have multi-day tickets be prepared to take a picture upon entering the first time. And sign the back of them.
There's more surface area in the esplanade and downtown Disney than the entirety of Disneyland.
Ticket prices usually go up in May. Watch Disney sites and blogs because the announcement happens quick.
Disney - you may have worst ticketing lines and process in entertainment industry - congrats on rough start to visit!
Since 4/15/13 and Boston, the check point is more thorough and slightly longer
Awesome - except for major rides closing for frequent maintenance issues. And the fireworks show cancelled "due to wind conditions." Again?
Look no big line!
Scan for strollers. When you get to actually scan your ticket, strollers are routed thru another gate separate from non stroller wielding folk.
Two adults, two kids and 500 dollars later...
Skip the ticket booth. Buy your tickets online.
They won't let you bring alcohol in... Such a shame
This is my spot...check in there and you must pay the price...lol
they have lockers now! :D
