Purchase touring plans
A long time ago I started planning trips for my friends and family. I have been going to Disneyland for over 40 years! I have lots of experience plus I LOVE to plan. And together with your input we come up with a touring plan based on the needs of your group.
How does it work?
Send me an email at email@example.com requesting more information about a customized plan for your party. Once payment is received for my services you will receive an email with specific questions about your visit. Here are a few of the questions you will see. I will send a complete list of questions once we begin plans. Here are some sample questions…
- What are your trip dates and are they flexible?
- Do you have park hopper tickets?
- When do you plan to arrive each day?
- How many in your group, ages of kids?
I will come up with a specific plan for each day of your visit based on your answers. The plan will be based on the time you plan to arrive at the parks. It will give you step by step which rides to go on in what order. Your custom plan includes all the must do attractions on YOUR list.
There are no more FastPasses at Disneyland. The replacement program called Disney Genie+ is now available for purchase. Read more on this post if you’re not familiar. My plans will work with or without purchasing Genie+. I will plan the order you should go on rides to maximize your time. Spend the least amount of time waiting in lines with a customized plan!
What’s included in a customized plan?
A customized plan is just that a plan specific for your group. No two plans are the same. I will do my best to plan the most magical trip! Prices start at $30/day that I plan for you. This base price of $30/day includes rides only and the order to go on to maximize your day. If you want to add in all the extra magic like shows, character meet and greets, suggestions for where to eat and the best place to watch fireworks or the parade then add $20/day more. The plans are based on what you need help planning.
Basic custom touring plan $30/day includes order of rides to maximize your day.
Basic custom touring plan PLUS more MAGIC $50/day includes entertainment, tips for shows, character info and dining options. Note I do not make your dining reservations. I have tips and info on how over here.
ADD a phone call option to any of these prices for $50. I will call and answer any other questions not covered in your custom plan in a 30 minute phone call.
Below I have included feedback from guests who have used my services. You will find a wide variety of helpful testimonials about my customized plans.

Your Disneyland Tour Guide,
Testimonials from happy customers …
“I wouldn’t consider going to Disneyland without the help of The Disneyland Tour Guide. The first time I used them I was hesitant having just found them on the internet but I took a leap of faith and now I use them every single time! Besides the core service of tailor planning a day or days based on my specific needs, they are awesome about answering all of my random questions from hotel recommendations on and off property to where to stand for fireworks. Regarding the daily itinerary planning itself, they take into account if you will use Disney Genie + and / or individual express lane pay-to-play and then craft a ride by ride ideal plan. Tips and tricks on top of that and contingencies if things go sideways, with my plan in hand I was able to sleep leading up to our trip and quit checking wait times like a maniac trying to project what they would be on our special day. We were able to ride all the rides we wanted to without using up our DG+ before lunch and then used those in the afternoon when the crowds were larger and I was a hero to the family all thanks to this awesome service. There may be competition online but stop searching, this is the guide you want!”

“Wow! I am SO happy that I purchased a custom touring plan from Shantelle! My family had the most magical, fantastic, low-stress trip to Disneyland and a huge part of that was having Shantelle’s plan to guide us! We spent a combined three days at Disneyland and California Adventure. We live in North Carolina and this trip out to California and Disneyland could be our only one while our kids are so young. We wanted to get the most out of our experience and even with all my own research and planning, I was feeling the pressure of how each day would go in the parks. We wanted to ride all the rides, experience all the magic, and not miss a thing. Letting Shantelle know our preferences helped her put together such a perfectly perfect in every way plan for us. As a mom trying to do all the things, it was amazing to get to the parks with an expert, specific-for-us, “roadmap” of which rides, shows, food, characters to see. Even my husband (not a planner like me), was so impressed by the plan and how spot-on it was with guiding us through our days so efficiently to have limited wait-times and check off all the specific boxes of things we wanted to do and see! Following the plan let us take a huge thing off our plate, since having young kids and tired parents means a lot to manage, not to mention having to debate which ride or show to go to next (while also factoring in wait times, getting-there times, etc)! Instead of taking so much time on those kinds of logistics, Shantelle had done ALL the work for us. And her years of experience and insider knowledge was invaluable. We were there in the summer on busy park days. There would have been no way we could have done it all without her help – and believe me, we did it ALL!! We were so impressed and consider it some of the best money we spent on our magical trip!”

“Reaching out to Shantelle and having her create our 2 day itinerary at Disneyland was by far the best money I spent while at the park. I kept reading that you should have a plan if you haven’t been to the DLP in several years and was nervous that we would be spending it in long lineups or trying to figure out how to use the new Genie + app. She created a personalized, tailored and clear plan for our family of three that included: how we should get around the park, where to go and when, along with how to best use the App and lightning lanes. I had very specific needs that we needed incorporated into the itinerary, which she made sure were included. All of these things added up in such a positive way that our time at Disneyland was indeed fun and enjoyable! If you are on the fence and are wondering if spending the money on a customized plan for your time in the park is worth it, 100% yes it is.”

“Thank you for the customized Disney plan. With your plan, we were able to navigate the super crowded park and not stand in long lines for rides or for food. Before we left, I felt the customized plan was more of a want item but I soon realized it truly was needed to make the most of our three day trip to Disneyland.”
“Money well spent! It was eight of the nine people in our group’s first trip to Disneyland and we were not messing around. We had 3 days (plus a special event) to experience as much Disney magic as possible. We LOVED the plan. We felt like we were Disney experts and used every minute to our advantage, which is money saved at Disneyland. We are already planning which days we will have Disneyland Tour Guide plan for us. The personalized plans are worth every cent!”

“Where do I even begin? I found Disneyland tour guide just a day before my trip. I had been waiting over a year for this trip and I wanted to make the most out of it. Thanks to Shantelle’s guide, we were able to get on all the rides we wanted, see everything we wanted and had great food. With her tips we were even able to get on Rise of the Resistance and Web Slingers! She saved us so much time and I loved having a plan! I can honestly say it was the best experience I’ve had at Disneyland and I cannot wait to go back again!”
Esperanza C. – July 2021
“I would highly recommend your touring plans to all who plan on taking a trip to Disneyland. From Disneyland “veterans,” families with children of all ages, Disneyland newbies, or once every few years guests, your plans will be perfect for all! Being a Disneyland “veteran” myself, your plans even opened up my eyes to experiencing Disneyland in ways I never would’ve thought of. I greatly appreciated all of the specific considerations and suggestions you provided in our itinerary. You not only took into consideration our desires for attractions, dinner plans, our party size/ages, or shows, but focused on the needs of my 23 month old son and wanting to have a stress-free, magical experience with him! Thank you for enhancing our magical time in the parks!”
