If you plan to visit the park during the weekends, get there early – maybe even as soon as the park opens. From what we have seen in the past, if you try to get their in the afternoon, there are cars lined up for an hour or two just trying to get into the park. Then after that wait, you need to find parking, its another reason why you should get their early.  

The awesome thing about getting there so early is that no one is there and you have the whole park to yourself. It’s perfect for a toddler that loves to run around… they won’t bump in into anyone!

Our best tip is to ride the train!!! It has to be the first thing on your to do list! It’s $5 per person (12 months or younger are free).

The train takes you around a small section of the park where you can see the whole pumpkin patch. The really cool part was the spooky tunnel towards the end of the ride. The kids will love it!

p.s. This spot for the pumpkin patch is also available for birthday parties! Check out our experience renting this Irvine Park Railroad birthday spot.
