When you enter Disneyland Park, you will immediately be handed 3 things: 1) A Wristband (very important), 2) A special Park Map and 3) Treat bag. Those who want to purchase tickets for the event on the day of OR those guests who are in the park during the normal operating park hours who need to pick up their wristbands, report to the outside area of Westward Ho Trading Company in Frontierland, where CMs can help you there.

Each trail will offer an assortment of candy and healthier treats.

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA.
