    Hello! We will be attending DisneyLAND for the first time February 25ish. Will there be a nighttime event in either park at that time? And is MaxPass recommended for primarily little kid rides? Any must dos for first timers with kids aged 7,3 and 6mos?

    Greetings, Laura!

    I’m SO excited for your first visit to the Disneyland Resort! I also have three children under the age of 7, so I'm delighted to steer you in the right direction. I checked the Entertainment Schedule for the day of your visit, and currently, there are two nighttime events in Disneyland Park for your family to enjoy: Mickey’s Soundsational Parade, and Mickey’s Mix Magic. I’d suggest scoping out a spot for the parade about half an hour before the start time.

    I recommend Disney MaxPass for both kids and adults, thanks to its convenience! With MaxPass, you can make FASTPASS selections directly from your mobile device upon entering the parks. MaxPass also includes digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos, which is a huge benefit, especially during your first visit! You can add MaxPass to your online ticket transaction, or through the Disneyland app, upon entering the parks. 

    You’ll also want to utilize the Rider Switch service and Baby Care Centers -- both are so beneficial with little ones! Here are a few of my favorites for your first visit to the Disneyland Resort: A Character breakfast at Plaza Inn, lunch or dinner at Blue Bayou Restaurant, “it’s a small world”, Mickey’s Toontown, riding the Disneyland Railroad and Monorail, meeting the Princesses at Royal Hall, visiting Cars Land and checking out the newly reimagined Pixar Pier.

    Wishing you a magical first visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

Meet the Panelist: Kristin, California

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
