142: Navigating Disneyland Parade Traffic
Megan & Kris give their tips on navigating through Disneyland parade traffic. Also, Kit talks about the movie The Lion King, and Teddy talks about why he has a dot of paint on his nose.
Navigating through Disneyland Parade Traffic
Know your schedule and how a parade might affect it. Be sure to get a show schedule when you enter the park or at any of the shops and look to see if there are any parades happening around the times you might have a restaurant reservation. If there is try to make sure that you're on the correct side of the park before the parade starts.
The do have sections that they will allow people to cross during the parade. The easiest place to cross the parade in our opinion would be by the corn dog wagon and Coke Corner.
To make things easier with all six of us, Megan wore Roddy, Kit was in the stroller (which Megan was pushing), I had Teddy on my shoulders, and Ginny was holding my hand. That way we had a hold on everyone in our party and didn't get separated.
You'll want to allow an extra 20 minutes of travel if you're planning on trying to cross the park during a parade.
Disney will often open up backstage passages along Main Street USA to help accommodate heavy traffic, especially after the fireworks.

FREE EBOOK: 10 Ways Families Can Save on a Disneyland Trip!
One of the very first things we hear when we talk to other people about visiting Disneyland is, “That sounds like so much fun, I wish we could go! It’s just so expensive.” After hearing this so many times, we started to look for ways that families could save on a Disneyland trip.
We found that while a Disneyland trip will be expensive (but totally worth it), you might be surprised to find that with a little forethought and planning, it can be within your reach!
In this short ebook, we’ve grouped our tips into three main categories: tips on saving and collecting extra money for your trip, saving on the trip itself, and ways to save at the parks on food and souvenirs. We even added five bonus tips on some free and inexpensive things you can do at Disneyland!
Sign up for our email list (below) and we'll email it right out to you! We'll also let you know when our Guide to Visiting Disneyland with Young Kids is released and keep you up to date on news, contests, and our latest podcast episodes.
