    Coming to SoCal in June w/3 boys 11, 8, 5. One day to do Disney-which park should we choose? Love EPCOT at WDW. Big Cars and Star Wars fans. So little time:( but we still want to experience! Best rides/shows/exp? Thanks in advance.

    Hi there Jennifer,

    I am so excited to hear that you'll be heading over to the Disneyland Resort on next year's visit to Southern California!  As you may have heard, The Happiest Place on Earth just got happier and there are so many new and exciting things to experience in BOTH theme parks, so it's hard to pick just one.

    If at all possible, to make the most of your day, I highly recommend upgrading to the Park Hopper option so you can take in the magic of both Disneyland Park AND California Adventure Park.  The entrances to both of these parks are located mere steps from one another, so it is very feasible to experience both in one day.  You certainly won't have time to see and do everything, but you will definitely be able to experience the highlights of each park.

    If I had to choose just one, I think I would suggest California Adventure!  You just cannot travel to Disneyland without checking out the all new Cars Land!  The Cars fans in your family will have a blast checking out Radiator Springs and will feel as if they've stepped right into the movie!  If you're still around in the evening, World of Color, the nighttime water and lights spectacular is beyond amazing!  

    The new Buena Vista Street entryway will transport your family to the early days of Hollywood when Walt Disney first arrived with "A suitcase and a dream."  Be sure to hope aboard the Red Car Trolley for a ride through California Adventure unlike any other!

    I am all out of room, but am happy to provide any information you need!  Just keep those questions coming!
