    Hi, Visiting Disneyland Resort alone on Nov 12, Sunday, I'm mainly interested in unique attractions not in Paris. Can I cover two parks with Park Hopper? Is Genius+ useful with single rider lanes?

    Hello, Louis,

    It sounds like you are planning a one-day visit to the Disneyland Resort in Southern California. There’s a lot more magic than can be experienced in just one day. So you are wise to prioritize unique experiences. I’ll do my best to offer tips and suggestions that may work well for you.

    1. Some unique attractions that I highly recommend at the Disneyland Resort include:
      Alice in Wonderland
      • Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride
      • Indiana Jones Adventure
      • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
      • Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway
      • Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!
      • Incredicoaster
      • Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!
      • Radiator Springs Racers
    2. Even if an attraction exists at both the California Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris, there may be differences that could still be interesting to observe. Case in point: both Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris feature a unique version of Sleeping Beauty Castle! Another great example of attractions worth comparing is Phantom Manor versus one of the last attractions with which Walt Disney was directly involved during development: the original Haunted Mansion.
    3. A handful of attractions may offer Single Rider queues. In most cases, the Single Rider queue of a given attraction can have shorter wait times than the standby queue. 
    4. Separate from Single Rider, the Disney Genie+ service offers access to Lightning Lane queues of select attractions that are almost always the fastest way to access an attraction.

    I hope you have a magical time experiencing Walt Disney's Original Magic Kingdom, Louis. If you have any other questions for us here at planDisney, we look forward to hearing from you again.
