    Hi Disney, I planned for visit both Disneyland and DCA on same day with my 6 yr girl (Height-4ft). Could you please help me how to get most adventures rides, events and fun places on single day? If you could help me those lists with numbering. thank you.

    Hey there Gagan,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for your question! I'm thrilled to hear that you'll be at the Happiest Place on Earth with your daughter in just a couple of days - how exciting!

    My son is around the same age, so I feel freshly prepared to help you with this question! I could write a novel out for you on my recommendations for the perfect day, but unfortunately, we do have character limits on our responses. However, the good news is that there are a number of helpful tools that I can share along with a couple of my can't-miss highlights. 

    First, I created a filtered list on the Attractions page for you that shows you 73 different ideas of attractions and entertainment you can choose from during your trip. It's filtered for your daughter's height and shows items for kids between the two parks. You really can't go wrong with anything on this list! Additionally, you can use the Disneyland mobile app's Disney Genie feature for tailored recommendations based on your interests.

    Also, I would highly recommend purchasing the Disney Genie+ Service so you can book Lightning Lane return times for select attractions. This helps to fit more attractions in during your visit and you'll also get unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos. Additionally, make sure your theme park tickets have the Park Hopper option! 

    In general, I love starting in Disneyland Park right when the park opens and heading straight for Fantasyland. Enjoy as many attractions as you'd like there and then head over to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge for a bit. After that, you can head to Mickey's Toontown for a picnic in the park and a ride on Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway

    You'll want to check the entertainment schedule to see if there is a parade to catch in Disneyland Park, but after that you can hop on over to Disney California Adventure Park and work your way clockwise starting in Hollywood Land. Make sure to also catch World of Color - ONE in the evening if there are showtimes! It's an incredible way to close out a packed day at the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Thanks again for your question, Gagan! I hope you make some amazing new memories with your daughter.

    Have a Magical Day,
