Hi everyone, so the hubs and I are talking DL this yr for our anniversary , the big 10 , most of you know I have never been , he's from CA and hasn't been in over 20 yrs, so question # 1 , how many days do you need? I know it's 2 parks but is 4 days good or more? Thanks guys;)
You guys will have a great time! 4 days should be a good start to see most things. You can get same day reservations with the exception of a few popular places and there are a lot of good quick service options as well. The nice thing about DL is that you don't really have much to plan, just go and enjoy! If you plan on staying at the Grand Cali villas, book right at 7 months because they book up fast. Congrats on 10 years! - Andrea84  625.0 #7 10:55PM
4 days is enough dont worry about dining most places you can walk right up and eat and it's not like wdw with all the fancy smanchy dinners lol but we have some gold restaurants but you can prob just make reservations the day before as far as rides you'll be fine you'll have time to do everything trust me I finish a park in like half a day haha when are you coming? It would be fun to meet up - Hendizl  2351.7 #44 11:46PM
Yay for 10!!! Congrats !!! Have fun planning - mmddgp  371.1 #18 8:03PM
Four was good for us. But then again, we were there for a full week for the honeymoon. - IndyandMarion  1235.0 #1 8:10PM
Four days is plenty! When I was a kid, we would go for close to a week but spend 2-3 days at other area attractions (Universal, Knott's Berry Farm, etc.) Now we usually just do DLR and find 3 days are enough. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  797.0 #3 8:31PM
well, 4 days is good enough! Just make sure there will be a Fireworks and WOC! - otilegna  1741.0 #68 9:04PM
What time of year r u going?? - mzdisnee  432.6 #14 9:07PM
So 4 is enough to see and do most things , now is it like wdw where you absolutely need to make dining ? Because with this being the first time I'd rather not have to be tied down to any, sorry for the commenting my reply button isn't working - tracsant  910.6 #2 9:09PM
@mzdisnee our anniversary is aug but I'm don't like the hot weather so we usually go oct or dec but if it def wont be oct so dec depending on price , maybe nov - tracsant  910.6 #2 9:12PM
4 days is definitely more than enough time. You can have a take brought to your table at your dinner. - Lelundrial  439.3 #417 9:59PM
Yup I agree 4 days is prefect... - islandgirl58  251.6 #25 10:07PM
Four days is good and some really good places to eat are Blue Bayou, Carthy Circle and Catal.:) - ally  505.8 #11 10:12PM
Yay for 10. - 5disneylovers  769.8 #5 10:14PM
Congrats on 10 years!!! Yes I agree 4 days is enough! :) have fun!!!! - lovetrustpixidust  5.8 #13223 12:47AM
For the WOC, you can do a Dining Package (Picnic Package to give you a fastpass, Carthay Circle Dining for a preferred view). Also, yeah i will recommend to eat at Carthay, a Bigger Replica of the theater... Fantasmic is first come first serve spot... You can get a dessert party for it though... - otilegna  1741.0 #68 1:48AM
And if ur planning to stay at a Disney Hotel, the Grand Californian maybe nice, BUT Disneyland Hotel is more romantic! (Add the Castle Headboard) - otilegna  1741.0 #68 1:50AM
ooh, 10 years...that is great! We are close to 20 years(2016)....maybe we should consider saving for DL. That is a cool plan! - ncjal  200.4 #33 8:43AM
So glad you asked this!! We want to go sometime soon and it's our first time, too!! - mrsincredible  765.5 #6 9:04AM
