Amber got right into her list of recommendations, beginning by advising visitors not to overdress for a busy day of activities.
She described seeing guests in Disney-themed outfits as one of her “favorite things,” but also issued a warning.
‘I have noticed that many park visitors do not remember that their clothing must also be functional.
“People often regret wearing heels, flip-flops and new shoes to Disneyland,” Amber warned.
He said he had previously met a visitor who came to the park wearing dress shoes.
And, after suffering severe pain in his feet, he was forced to have a pair of tennis shoes delivered via Uber.
But that is not the only obstacle.
Disneyland offers a variety of dining options for guests throughout the day, but Amber told guests to spend their time and money wisely.
‘If visitors have limited time to explore the parks, it may not be worth spending two or three hours on an expensive dining experience.
“I’ve seen the look of disappointment on people’s faces when they finish an expensive dinner and realize they no longer have time to ride the number one attraction on their list,” he said.

Instead, the Disney expert suggested guests set a time limit on their meal breaks or opt for grab-and-go snacks.
Amber then encouraged guests to explore beyond the attractions.
‘There are many other things to do in the parks. The place is full of talented, hard-working staff who create and perform shows that are worth attending,” he explained.
The former employee recommended the park’s parades, nightly shows and daily events, to name just a few.
Amber explained: “The way I see it, missing a big show isn’t worth a two-hour wait for a short ride.”
And when it comes to the weather, Amber urged visitors not to wait for it to rain.
‘I love spending time in parks when it rains lightly.
“As long as I have a coat and the rain isn’t too heavy, I can have a great day without the sun beating down on me,” he said.
The Disneyland fan said most of the attractions are still running and the park being less busy is an added bonus.
Last but not least, Amber commented that there were many benefits to visiting Disneyland alone.
He concluded: “When guests travel alone to Disney, they don’t have to argue about what to do next, they can use the single rider queue at some attractions and operate on their own schedule.”
