迪士尼乐园被誉为“地球上最快乐的地方”,许多家庭都将它列为一家人最想去的首选目的地。如果你预先安排周全,在迪士尼乐园的魔幻之旅就能既让你永生难忘、又不会狠狠诈你一笔。下面几条小贴士都是经过试炼的经验总结,能让你在享受迪士尼之旅的同时节省支出。
 
1. Come Prepared
有备而来
 
Plan ahead so that you don't have to purchase a necessity at Disneyland that you could have brought from home. For example, check the weather so that you don't need to buy a rain poncho or umbrella.
如果你预先考虑周全,就不用在迪士尼乐园里购买那些你本可以从家里带来的生活必需品。比如,事先查查天气预报,你就不用买雨披或雨伞了。
 
2. Buy Souvenirs in Advance
预先买好纪念品
 
Disney has infiltrated practically every industry, which makes it easy to find Disney items anywhere, from Walmart, Target, and your local grocery store to department stores and Amazon. You can save a lot of money by purchasing items before your trip at these less-expensive retailers than at Disneyland.
迪士尼的品牌已经渗透到几乎所有行业,因而你随处都可以买到迪士尼品牌的纪念品,从沃尔玛到塔吉特,再到你家附近的杂货店、百货公司以及亚马逊购物网。这些地方零售的迪士尼纪念品比迪士尼乐园便宜得多,如果你在出发之前买好这些东西,就能省下一大笔钱。
 
3. Make an Autograph Book
制作一本签名簿
 
An autograph book is seen as a must-have by many Disneyland enthusiasts and is a memory you can take home with you. These books can cost anywhere from $7.95 to $19.95 at the Disney Store and up to $30 for the latest-and-greatest autograph book at Disneyland, such as the park's 60th anniversary edition.Other options can get the job done for under $5. For example, you can buy a small, generic photo album; cute memo pads or notebooks.
对于那些迪士尼乐园的铁杆粉丝来说,签名簿是必不可少的东西,这是一种有形的纪念,能带回家收藏起来。这类签名簿在迪士尼专卖店里出售的价格从7.95美元到19.95美元不等,在迪士尼乐园里,一本最新、最精美的签名簿可以卖到30美元(例如迪士尼乐园的60周年纪念特别版签名簿)。但你还有另一种选择,只需要花费不到5美元。比如,你可以在附近的文具店买一本小小的随便什么牌子的相册、可爱的便签簿或者笔记本。

4. Use a Shuttle Service or Carpool
乘坐班车或者同别人一起拼车
 
Disneyland charges $17 a day to park in one of their parking lots or structures. Most nearby hotels offer shuttle services, often even for free. If you are not staying at a nearby hotel and need to park at Disneyland, then try to carpool.
在迪士尼乐园的停车场或可停车的园区里停车需要收取17美元/天的停车费。而园区附近大多数的旅店都有班车,许多甚至是免费的。如果你并不住在附近的旅店,又需要在迪士尼乐园停车,你可以试着和别人一起拼车。
 
5. Bring Your Own Stroller/Wheelchair
自带婴儿推车或轮椅
 
If you are planning on using a stroller or wheelchair, plan ahead. You can rent a single stroller at the park for $15 a day. No double strollers are available, but you can rent two strollers for a discounted price of $25 a day.
如果你要用婴儿推车或者轮椅,最好早早做好准备,在迪士尼乐园里租一辆单人婴儿车的价格是一天15美元。园里没有双人婴儿车,不过你可以同时租两辆,打折价为25美元一天。
 
6. Eat Breakfast Before You Arrive
在到达前吃好早餐
 
Breakfast is almost as pricey as lunch or dinner if you eat inside the Disneyland parks. You can save quite a bit of money by eating breakfast before you go to the park.
如果你在迪士尼乐园里吃早餐,你会发现早餐的价格和中餐、晚餐一样贵。如果你在抵达之前吃好早饭,你就能省下许多钱。
 
If your hotel has a fridge, buy milk and cereal or other easily prepared breakfast items the night before so that you're ready to go in the morning or take advantage of the hotel's free breakfast. If you want to eat out, eat at a local restaurant that is inexpensive or has a kids' menu, such as McDonald's which is close to the park.
如果你居住的旅店提供冰箱,你可以在出发前一晚买好牛奶、燕麦等容易准备的早餐原料,以便第二天早早出发;或者你可以享受旅店里的免费早餐。如果你打算下馆子,你可以在园区附近的餐馆吃早餐,那里价格便宜,而且有专门的儿童套餐(例如麦当劳,位置离园区很近)。
 
7. Bring Your Own Food and Drinks
自带食物和饮料
 
While Disney's official policy says it does not allow outside food or drinks, Disneyland does allow most food items. Take snacks for throughout the day or pack a lunch to enjoy in the picnic area just outside the main entrance of the park.
迪士尼乐园的官方规定是不允许游客自带外食,尽管如此,大多数的食品是可以带入园区的。准备点零食,这样逛完整个园区都不怕肚子饿了,或者带上午餐,可以在主干道旁边的野餐区享用。
