Here are a few insider tips and tricks to make your day the most enjoyable (and stress free, hopefully): 
(All tips and pictures are provided by Instagram account HERE @magickingdommamas. Follow them to get more helpful information about your visit )  

  1. Baby items can be purchased(cash only) at both Baby Care Centers. These centers have formula, bottles, diapers, wipes, microwaves, nursing area and more. These 2 centers can be lifesavers when you forget something or just need a quiet place to rest or feed your kids/baby. There is one in each park. You can ask any cast member for locations. 
  2. Bring a backpack(the easiest to carry around), sunscreen, reusable water bottles, small cooler bag with plenty of snacks, hand sanitizer(apply after every ride), a few small toys to entertain your kids while in line or waiting for a parade, blanket to claim a parade spot, hats, sunglasses, Sweatshirt/pants for the cooler evenings, extra clothes if you're planning on riding the water rides, baby carrier, stroller, stroller lock if you planning on leaving your stroller for a while(do not leave valuables in your stroller while parked) and  a stroller fan for the really hot days.
  3. Buy your tickets online. The lines can get very long and you don't want to waste a precious magic hours waiting in line to get your passes.
  4. Get there early! Parking, tram ride and going through security can take up to 1 hour. The early mornings in the park are the least crowded.  


Hope to help you plan your Newport Beach vacation soon! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
