    What is the best way to book a family vacation? We will have 4 adults and 3 kids

    Greetings, and welcome to planDisney, Jennifer!

    "My oh my, what a wonderful day!" Jennifer, you're planning a vacation to The Happiest Place on Earth and consulted the most resourceful place on Earth for your planning, congratulations!

    The best way to book a family vacation is through a Disneyland Resort vacation package with a Disneyland Resort Hotel vacation package or a Disneyland Resort Good Neighbor Hotel vacation package using the step-by-step reservation process which will guide you through each important planning logistic, right down to your return airport transportation. Since it appears that you may need two Guest Rooms, you will need to make two separate bookings, or you may wish to explore the Disneyland Resort Hotel Suite accommodations if you all wish to lodge together.

    Once booked, Jennifer, please proceed to link the vacation package(s) to your Disney account via the My Disneyland planning area in order to proceed with your Disneyland Resort - Theme Park Reservations and to also facilitate the electronic delivery of your Disneyland Resort Travel ePackage(s) to your Disney account 4 days before your arrival. The Travel ePackage(s) will contain your travel itinerary, theme park tickets and Magical Extras voucher, please print out these documents before arrival. When you secure your Disneyland Resort - Theme Park Reservations you will also receive an electronic QR Code which you should either store on your mobile device from the email confirmation, or print out and bring it along. By linking all vacation package reservations to your Disney account you will facilitate planning during your visit together for such things as securing Disneyland Resort - Theme Park Reservations, dining reservations, selecting those from your travel party for Virtual Queues and for arrival windows at Lighting Lane entrances.

    Consider adding the Disney Genie+ service during your Disneyland Resort theme park ticket selection to save time waiting in lines for Lighting Lane entrances, or you can easily add the service as soon as you enter a reserved theme park using your Disneyland Mobile App. Plus, when you purchase the Disney Genie+ service you will enjoy unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass attraction photos including Magic Shots from your day to preserve your special memories forever!

    Downloading the Disneyland Mobile App and updating the Payment Method will enable app transactions such as adding the Disney Genie+ service for all in your travel party, enjoying the convenience of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, Merchandise Mobile Ordering and more!

    At 60-days before your stay you can begin to secure your Disneyland Dining Reservations and for difficult to secure venues join a waitlist with Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability using the Disneyland Mobile App.

    Jennifer, it was such a pleasure assisting you, please stop by to chat again!
