Our Disneyland Documents Arrived!
The luggage tags--6 of them--were very noticeable. High quality American Tourister luggage tags much different than the thin plastic tags from Walt Disney World.
The top portion of the Disneyland themed envelope contained a special pouch. The velcro closure was securing our park tickets and dining vouchers that were bundled using a rubber band. Yes, park tickets!
Disneyland offers a variety of park tickets--number of days, park hopper, etc. But the maximum number of days available on a ticket is 5 days. Each of us has two different tickets--a 3-day ticket and a 4-day ticket. I have used a sharpie marker and written our names on the back of our respective tickets.
The dining vouchers are for character dining. Disneyland offers vouchers for regular character dining that is offered in 3 locations--Minnie and Friends Breakfast at the Plaza Inn at the Disneyland Park, Surf's Up! Breakfast with Mickey and Friends at Disney's PCH Grill in the Paradise Pier Hotel, and Chip 'n' Dale's Critter Breakfast at Storytellers Cafe at the Grand Californian Hotel. Vouchers for Premium character dining are also available and can be used at 2 locations--Goofy's Kitchen for breakfast or dinner at the Disneyland Hotel and Ariel's Disney Princess Celebration for breakfast or lunch at Ariel's Grotto in Disney California Adventure Park.
We will be dining in all of the above locations. Having the vouchers allowed for us to have these meals pre-paid (as there is no dining plan at Disneyland) and to save money as the vouchers also include tax and gratuity.
My only concern is that we have to keep track of all the tickets, the dining vouchers, and once we check in at our resort hotel, room keys. I'm missing MagicBands that are used at Walt Disney World and use radio frequency technology to "hold" all guests' park ticket information, operate as a room key, and keep track of dining entitlements. Put on the MagicBand and go. At Disneyland, we'll have to make sure we have everything we need prior to going to the parks.
The lower portion of the envelope contained information about checking in at Disneyland Resort Hotel and a special coupon booklet. One of the coupons is for a free lanyard and pin for each person in our traveling party. This coupon made the husband very happy!
The trip is getting closer!
