Teenagers and Disney

I am a teenager who went to Disneyland this past summer. My best advice would be to spend more time with friends than with family.
Your friends are the people you're going to have the most fun with because they share the same interests as you. You'll be able to ride the same roller coaster five times in a row instead of little siblings complaining or parents throwing up after the first thirty seconds and refusing to go on again.
Fast passes are a necessity. They're a great time-saver, and make your day more enjoyable because you feel cool cutting everyone in line and are able to go on more rides in one day. It will also leave more time for ride enjoyment than awkward time with having to talk when you should be on a ride.
As for food, it's mad expensive, so share your meals. If you go to a restaurant, split a bunch of cheap appetizers rather than all ordering lobster, because taxes will kill you. Or better yet, buy food at a grocery store before you go to your hotel and make lunches to have in your room.
Wear comfortable shoes, no matter what outfit you're wearing. Feet that hurt after an hour of walking will ruin your entire day.
Disneyland is an awesome way for teenagers to be little kids again, and no one else would understand that excitement besides other teenagers! So find the right people to spend your experience with, and you'll have a great time.
