    We are going to Disneyland in California on January 2019. This is the first time for the whole family. My daughters are 7 and 6 years old. We are staying at the Disneyland Hotel.Which shows and activities my daughters will enjoy more? Thanks!

    Hi there, Veronica! 

    First off, I want to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and congratulate you on your family’s first trip to the Disneyland Resort! 

    Your daughters are at a wonderful age to enjoy countless shows and experiences. I’d recommend starting your day with a ride into Disneyland Park aboard the Disneyland Monorail. You can board at the Downtown Disney District station, just a short walk from the Disneyland Hotel. Ask for a special “1st Visit” button at the turnstiles upon entering.

    Do your daughters love dressing up like princesses? You may want to check out the royal transformations that take place at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Fantasyland! A magical experience is guaranteed at this enchanted beauty salon. You’ll want to call ahead to book a reservation at (714) 781-STYLE or (714) 781-7895. Afterward, they can meet multiple princesses at Royal Hall at Fantasy Faire. And the whole family will enjoy the comical Storytelling at Royal Theatre. 

    When you’re ready for a delicious treat, stop by The Tropical Hideaway and indulge in a DOLE WHIP Float while watching the Jungle Cruise. 

    At Disney California Adventure Park, your daughters will likely enjoy meeting Vampirina on Hollywood Boulevard, and dancing along at the Disney Junior Dance Party. Head on over to Pixar Pier for Toy Story Midway Mania!, which is a must-do for my whole family.

    I wish you and your family a pixie-dusted Disney getaway! 

    See ya’ real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Kristin, California

Greetings from sunny California! I live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder (and now a Magic Key Passholder) for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids ages 5-10, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Learn More About Kristin
