Going to Disneyland or Six Flags or to pretty much any amusement park will always be a lot of fun for everyone. Seeing Mickey Mouse or riding the thrilling rides can make almost anyone excited to go there. Kids as well as adults enjoy going to amusement parks and experiencing the fun attractions. If you can find anything negative about the amusement parks, it would be the long lines at every single ride and attraction. These can be a major turn-off to any visitor who wants to ride or go inside the attractions.
There are many ways to avoid the long lines, especially in Disneyland. Before going, be sure to time your visit during the slow seasons. You will want to avoid going during spring break, or any long holiday weekend. Going during spring break only means that all the rides and attractions in Disneyland are going to be clogged by lines and you will have to wait for hours to get into one. It would be a waste of your day to just wait to get into one ride instead of being able to get around and probably get to go inside other attractions and go on the other rides.
You can also opt to go early to Disneyland so that you can experience all the rides and attractions with relatively short lines. Always go to the biggest rides and attractions first to be able to ride those before the masses start to converge. This way, you'll be done with the featured rides and attractions before everyone else and you can enjoy your time going around and seeing the whole place.
You can also check in the motels just outside Disneyland so that you can get in earlier than the others. And those you don't finish your first day, you can always go to on the next day. This way, you can always take your time during the first day, knowing you have another day to finish everything else.
Disneyland also has its own solution to the long lines. They distribute "Fast Passes" which enable purchasers to avoid the long lines and start out right at front. Fast Passes only work for certain periods of time so the user has the ability to go inside the ride or attraction first to maximize his time.
Long lines are never fun, so be sure to keep these tips in mind. The most important thing here is preparation. Prepare your trip beforehand and be sure you have everything down pat. Research through the Internet the right time to go to the park in the first place and learn how to acquire your Fast Passes and your motel rooms in advance just in case you are going during the peak seasons. Know when the theme park opens so you can arrive there early.
