We had planned to stay at Disneyland from morning to night. My children however had other plans. We arrived as the park opened. A friend let us borrow a two child stroller. It was insanely large but I am so glad I insisted that we bring it. My husband thought it was crazy.
We made it to about 7pm. I really wanted to stay for the fireworks and parade but the kids were wiped out. We were going to return for another day but my daughter wanted to go back to the beach instead. Saved us a ton of money. Although I had a feeling the second day at Disneyland we would've been better prepared.
