    My husband and I will be visiting Disneyland for one day without kids!! Other than the big rides, what are the can't miss things to do for grown ups, without little ones in tow?

    Hi Julie,

    I'm so excited for you to have a quick getaway with your husband at The Happiest Place on Earth; it's the best place for kids of all ages to find their laughin' place.

    You have a great plan set forth of riding the adventurous attractions already, but there's more to the Disneyland Resort than "big attractions," as you've already mentioned. Over in the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is the Napa Rose Restaurant; if you want to enjoy an elegant dinner, this is the place.

    Being that you don't have your Mouseketeers in tow, utilize your quick feet to get FastPasses throughout the day. We like to recharge and have "mini" dates by getting a churro and a coffee. 

    Another fun thing we like to do is walk the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough. As you walk through the castle, you will read from an enlarged story book of Sleep Beauty and see some scenes from the movie. It's also really enchanting to know that you are walking through Sleeping Beauty's Castle.

    The "Walk in Walt's Disneyland Footsteps" Guided Tour is amazing. It is about 3 hours long; however, you will learn about Disney's history, tales, and challenges of when Walt built the Disneyland Resort from the ground up. You also get a tour of Walt's apartment and then end with a lunch.

    I hope this helps and that you have a pixie-dusted visit. If you have any more questions, please visit me here and let me know how I can help you plan your magical vacation.

    Wishing you magic!
