    Hello, my daughter and I will be heading to Disneyland for a 3 day trip. We have a park a day pass for each day we are there. Which park would you recommend we start at? Thank you!

    Hi, Cathy!

    Your magical Disneyland vacation is just around the corner. You must be so excited! Make sure to stop by my favorite dining location - Flo's V8 Café while visiting Disney California Adventure Park. You simply must have one of Flo's Classic Milk Shakes topped with "road gravel!"  OK, it's just cookie crumbs, but boy is it delicious!

    I am a traditional Disney girl, so my first stop is always Disneyland Park. There is something quite special about stepping onto Main Street, USA for the first time. It really sets the tone for all the magic that awaits! Day 2, head to Disney California Adventure Park, then Day 3 you can return to your park of choice. If you have the Park Hopper option on your tickets, you can "hop" between the two parks whenever you wish. If you do not have the Park Hopper option, you are welcome to leave your park for a mid-day break, but you must return to the same park.

    While visiting the parks, make sure to use the complimentary Disney FASTPASS service to save time waiting in line. You might even want to try Disney MaxPass, similar to FASTPASS but you can book your times right on your smartphone through the Disneyland app (fee is charged per guest/per day for using MaxPass).

    Wishing your family many special moments while visiting the Happiest Place on Earth!
