    Coming from NY and looking forward to our first Disneyland trip in May of 2023! We’ve been to Disney World frequently, but will need help with Disneyland. Is there an email list we can get on? Thanks!

    Hi there, JoAnna! Welcome to planDisney!

    What an exciting time to be planning a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! I visit the Walt Disney World Resort frequently, as well, so I'm happy to help guide you in the right direction.

    Though Disney is Disney, there are quite a few differences between the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World, so I can understand why you'd be seeking some assistance with the planning process. Though there is not a specific e-mail list, you can contact a Disneyland Resort Cast Member directly for help with planning the vacation of your dreams! Cast Members are kind, friendly and knowledgeable.. and of course, always ready to help you get your trip on the books. They can help with vacation packagesdining reservationsDisney Genie and Disney Genie+ and more. If you do prefer to communicate via e-mail, you can fill out this e-mail form to receive a response from a Cast Member as soon as possible.

    JoAnna, I did want to share with you some of the main differences I've noticed between planning at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. First, if staying on property, you will have an easier time choosing a resort hotel at Disneyland Resort. Though there may be fewer options, Disneyland Resort is home to some of the finest hotels of any Disney destination. My personal favorite is Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, which has a direct entrance into Disney California Adventure Park!

    Also, there are two parks within Disneyland Resort, Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park. Though you'll see many similarities, like Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, it can also be fun to compare the differences, like the subtle nuances of Space Mountain. I also like to spend time enjoying the parts of the Disneyland Resort Parks that are unique to California, such as Cars Land and Radiator Springs Racers and Avengers CampusWEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure is an interactive ride experience where you will get to help complete a special mission alongside Peter Parker!

    Finally, it may be a good idea to familiarize yourself with Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane Attractions before your visit. These add-ons help bypass long standby lines to maximize your day in the parks! If you have a list of must-do rides while vacationing at the Disneyland Resort, this could be a great way to help experience as many of those as possible!

    I hope I've helped guide you in the right direction today, JoAnna! As you begin narrowing down the options and finalizing your stay, feel free to stop back by planDisney with any additional questions!

    Happy planning,
