    Coming to convention ctr late June for competition. Kids want to hit Disneyland. Know it will be crowded. Any tips for us? Two older teens, one preschooler. Never been there! Probably can squeeze in two days.

    Hi there Vicki,

    Wow!  Your visit and competitions are just around the corner and I am so excited to hear that you'll be squeezing in a day or two at Disneyland!  You'll be happy to know that the Anaheim Convention Center is located right around the corner from the theme parks so popping over will be a piece of cake!

    If you decide to spend two days at the resort, you will have enough time to visit both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park.  You'll definitely want to see both if you can because there are tons of things to see and do in each park that all of your kiddos will enjoy.  And you definitely won't wanna miss the classic, adventurous, and magical attractions of Disneyland, nor the all new Cars Land area of Disney California Adventure.  A Park Hopper Pass may be an option that will help you maximize your time, as this will enable you guys to walk back and forth between the two parks as you wish.  If you'll be there on two separate evenings, devote one to watching fireworks at Disneyland and one to World of Color at DCA.

    I would highly recommend planning to start your park days as early as possible, arriving before opening if you can and familiarize yourself with time saving solutions including FastPass, a complimentary service that will help you spend less time waiting in line for select attractions.  

    Also, if you plan to dine in the parks, I suggest making reservations ahead of time!  You can browse available options online and can reserve a table by calling (714)781-DINE.  There are also many counter service locations that are delicious and quick, which will save time since you're on a limited schedule!  These locales to not require reservations!

    Hope this helps and please write back for more tips!
