Planning a hassle-free Disneyland holiday is not easy but it can be done. Disneyland is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world so thankfully there are many holiday packages to choose from and many packages have features designed specifically to keep your little ones happy. Virgin Atlantic Airlines, for example, shows Disney television shows like Hannah Montana on the long flights fro the U.K. This really gets the little ones in the mood and takes their minds off the long flight.

Half of the hassles of visiting Disneyland are simply that nearly all of your fellow travelers have small children with them and we all know that small children don’t make the best travelers. Using Virgin Atlantic Airline’s self service kiosks to check-in at Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester airports also helps cut down on airport hassles, letting you avoid long check-in lines.

When planning your Disney holiday, know that unless you are staying for a month or so, you will not be able to see everything. Disneyland covers as much ground as a major city and if you try to cram in as much as possible, you’ll be frustrated and your kids won’t really enjoy anything as much. Sometimes they are happy to just stand and stare at all the wonders.

There is so much information online so you can select your must-see places and save the other attractions for another holiday. Most small children love the Magic Kingdom theme park and this is the park most people come to see. Expect long lines, long wait times to get on rides and expensive food and drinks. If you plan for this, you’ll experience fewer hassles. Bring your own water bottles and fill the up at the free water fountains and be sure to bring a small toy or game to occupy your kids while waiting in the queues (lines). A well-planned Disneyland Holiday is usually a hassle-free holiday.
