    My daughter wants to celerbrate her Sweet 16 birthday at Disneyland California in a month. We have purchased 3 day parkhoppers already because we plan on being there for her entire birthday weekend! Where should we stay and where should we eat?

    Hey there, Christina!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your daughter is going to have an INCREDIBLE and unforgettable 16th birthday at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    When it comes to hotels in and around the Disneyland Resort, you have SO many choices. There are three official Disneyland Resort Hotels to choose from. My very favorite is Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa which offers an exclusive park entrance to Disney California Adventure Park as well as exquisite dining and decor. There are also a number of Good Neighbor Hotels near the resort that offer an array of accommodation styles and amenities.

    Dining at the Disneyland Resort is my very favorite topic! There are so many amazing dining options from Quick Service to Table Service, Lounges, and Character Dining experiences. You can make dining reservations at Table Service restaurants up to 60 days in advance online, on the Disneyland app, or by calling (714) 781-3463. Some of my favorite restaurants that would be perfect for a birthday celebration are Carthay Circle Restaurant, Blue Bayou Restaurant, and Lamplight Lounge (check out their weekend brunch, too!). Even without reservations, I have had amazing meals at Quick Service restaurants like Plaza Inn, Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe, and many others. You won't be disappointed with any type of dining you choose. I hope this helps!

    Have a Fantasmic day!
