    I am a D23 charter member… I live in NC… I am flying to Disneyland on May 23 for one full day by myself… does Disneyland offer anything special to D23 members

    Hi there, Annie! Welcome to planDisney!

    A D23 charter member is such a cool distinction. You sure are one dedicated Mouseketeer! In terms of D23 benefits at the Disneyland Resort, it looks like there are several discounts available for locations throughout Downtown Disney District. While the discounts don't extend to ticket purchases, you'll definitely want to be sure to schedule a little time to explore this area. Maybe pop out of the parks for lunch and a quick shopping excursion! I absolutely cannot miss a stop at WonderGround Gallery where you can find unique Disney artwork and home decor from some incredible artists. You'll find the most whimsical representations of your favorite characters and attractions to take home with you!

    I have done a few solo days and, as much as I love family Disney days, I honestly have so much fun zipping through the parks by myself! One of my favorite perks of a solo day is taking advantage of the single rider lines. Essentially, if you are a party of one, you can enter select attractions through the Lightning Lane entrance and skip most of the line as long as you don't mind joining another party that has an uneven number of guests. Yes, this may mean you are the sixth wheel on Radiator Spring Racers, but a small price to pay for hitching a ride faster than you can say Lightning McQueen! Some of my favorite attractions for single-riders are Incredicoaster, Millenium Falcon: Smugglers Run, and Splash Mountain!

    I also love taking advantage of Mobile Ordering meals and snacks. This is one of my favorite features of the Disneyland Mobile App whether I'm flying solo or with my family. When I'm on my own, it streamlines my day and you can often find me eating a corn dog on the go! That being said, I find it really easy to fly through the day without taking a single break and before you know it you're watching Mickey's Mix Magic and heading back to your hotel or car. I always try to remind myself to slow down at one point. I recommend grabbing a sweet treat and listening to The Dapper Dans on Main Street, U.S.A.! 

    Annie, you are in for such a fun day at the Happiest Place on Earth! If you have any questions in your planning, you know where to find us! We are always here for you at planDisney!

    Magic awaits!
