    HI!, I am bringing my son to disneyland for the first time to celebrate his 5th birthday. We have a large family that want to come. Are there family discounts for large groups. What is the best way to plan this?

    Hiya, Harpreet! 

    A very merry unbirthday to you. I'm sure your son will find a birthday celebration at the Disneyland Resort to be a very memorable experience. It sounds like a marvelous way to celebrate together as an extended family. Let's go over some possible ways to save money when taking large groups to The Happiest Place on Earth. 

    For very large groups that would require 10 or more guest rooms, reach out to Disney Group Getaways. They can help to find out what services and rates would best suit your needs.Some organizations help plan large events and gatherings at the Disneyland Resort. Often, these groups welcome and encourage their community members, friends, and supporters to join with them in their group events. A well-known example of such an event is Dappers Days. Events like these are not organized or sponsored by Disney. Though the Disneyland Resort may provide some support, often in the form of discounted hotel rates for guests attending during the events. You might be interested in searching out one of these organizations to find out if their scheduled events may be of interest to you too.

    If you end up going it on your own, there are a number of ways to save money. Be sure to check the latest Disneyland Resort Offers and Discounts. For example, there is currently a limited-time ticket offer for children that can help save a great deal on the cost of tickets. If any Guests in your party live in ZIP codes 90000-93599, the current SoCal Resident Ticket may be another way to save on tickets as well.

    Other places to check for special ticket and hotel offers are through your employer, collective bargaining organization, military service benefits organization for active or retired members of the U.S. military, or local community organizations, including credit unions, schools, community centers, and more.

    Tony's Tip: There are other ways to save and budget for a Disneyland Resort vacation. My preferred way is to collect Disney Gift Cards. With a set number of gift cards, I know exactly what our vacation budget is. I can usually save on vacation expenses by purchasing Disney Gift Cards at a discount from local retailers or wholesale warehouse stores. Disney Gift Cards can be used on many different purchases, including theme park tickets, Disneyland Resort Hotel rooms, Vacation Packages, dining, shopping, and more.

    I hope that gives you some ideas for starting to plan a large-group visit to the Disneyland Resort, Harpreet. If you have any more questions about your visit to the Disneyland Resort, we'd be happy to hear from you again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
