If you’ve visited Disneyland before, think back to your vacation and the things you enjoyed most about it. Dig out your souvenirs, photos, and home movies and view them with fresh eyes. If you used a PassPorter last time, go through your PassPockets carefully to refresh your memory and find the notes you made “for next time.” If you haven’t gone to Disneyland before, talk to all the friends and family members who have gone and get their impressions, tips, and stories.
Network With Others

Look to your communities for other vacationers who’d like to swap ideas and plans—try your workplace and school.
