    Six of us have Parkhopper tickets and plan to see as much as we can in one day. We will start in CA and then go to DL since it is open later. Tips on making the most of our day? We're all young, adult and able-bodied. Thrill rides and fireworks a must.

    Hi Taylor!
    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    I can't tell you how excited I am about your upcoming trip! A party of six young adults with tons of energy and Park Hopper Tickets will make for an unbelievably Magical time!
    First off, I make sure you have comfortable shoes, preferably sneakers for all that walking!
    I would suggest you start at the Disneyland Resort.
    The earlier you arrive, the better since the Park won't be too crowded so you can take all of your classic Disneyland pictures and get that out of the way.
    You'll want a picture with Mickey and Minnie in Main Street U.S.A., a picture in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle, one riding the King Arthur Carrousel and another one in front of the "it's a small world" attraction (in that particular order).
    Once the pictures are done, head to Tomorrowland and ride Space Mountain. The line shouldn't be too long early in the morning and you'll set the tone for a fun-filled day!
    I recommend each ticket holder purchase the new MaxPass service for $10 per day. This service allows you to make FASTPASS reservations for your favorite attractions from the Disneyland Mobile App on your phone! While you're at Disneyland, use MaxPass to get FASTPASSES for Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! It's an extremely popular attraction so I would book FASTPASS while still at Disneyland.
    After Space Mountain, hang out for a bit in Tomorrowland and visit the Star Wars Launch Bay, ride Autopia and test your skills at Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters.
    By that time, your group may be ready for lunch, at which point I say, visit the Little Red Wagon for a delicious hand-dipped corn dog!
    After lunch, head to California Adventure. Depending on your FASTPASS return for Guardians of the Galaxy, see if there's time to hop on the Grizzly River Run for lots of soakin' fun!
    Finally, make time for World of Color and return to Disneyland for the late showing of Fantasmic!
