    A great way to enrich your Disney Day

    This book was fun and easy to use and made me almost sorry for the short lines we had, I especially like the scavenger hunt suggestions.

    Keeping kids busy in line is fun

    Have you ever had to wait in line with kids? It’s generally hard to keep kids in one place on a good day. When you are waiting in line for a ride or event that seems interminably slow, the waiting can be hard and frustrating. Visiting a place like Disneyland can be exceptionally taxing with the inevitable long lines Disney is famous for.

    Meredith Lyn Pierce to the rescue. Pierce recently published a book called Lots To Do In Line: Disneyland. The concept behind this book is fantastic and I imagine the research that went into it was a ton of fun. Pierce has compiled dozens of trivia quizzes and game ideas for your time at Disneyland. As you are standing in line waiting, you can engage your children by asking them questions about what they see.

    Pierce and her family must have spent hours standing in line to research everything you would see from different vantage points along the “queue” for many of Disneyland’s attractions. The quizzes offer a great way to keep kids engaged and interested in what is happening in their vicinity. It helps to keep the parents active with their kids as well. There are different questions for the FastPass lines as well as the standby queues for the regular folk.

    I love the thought and attention to detail in the quizzes. The author clearly spent a lot of time working on the quizzes and finding great activities for the kids to do while in line.

    Another interesting idea Pierce presents is the idea of Collections. Collections are groupings of things you find while at the park. Each thing you find and place in a collection is worth one point. The person with the most points at the end of the day wins. You get extra points for completing the most collections. You can make up any rules to go along with this fun game. Some ideas of collections the author offers are funny hats, button collectors, Mickey Mouse ears, crazy backpacks, the list can go on.

    This book is a must have if you are planning a trip to Disneyland in California with kids. It will keep everyone entertained even while you are waiting. Make up some great prizes for the most points and you have incentive for maintaining cooperative behavior as well.
