    We are going to Disneyland over Christmas this year. What are the must do's? We have a 4 yr old and 18 month old. Also, considering it is a black out period, does anywhere within the park offer military discounts?

    Seasons Greetings, Jillian!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel as you plan your festive Christmas vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth. Holiday time is truly the most magical time of year at the Disneyland Resort!

    You will find holly jolly touches around every corner of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park during your trip. Your entire family will love meeting Characters in their holiday best around Town Square and Buena Vista Street. I also always like to prioritize seasonal experiences that you can only do during this time of year like riding Haunted Mansion Holiday and "it's a small world" Holiday. Make sure you also come with an empty stomach each day, because there are SO MANY delicious and delightful eats and treats around the Disneyland Resort this year. I already have a list of all the things I want to try this season! You can check out "foodie guides" for the season at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park on the Disney Parks Blog to prepare. Most attractions do not have height requirements meaning your entire family can experience them. I suggest adding Disney MaxPass to your tickets (your 18 month old will not need a ticket) to maximize your experiences during this time of year.

    You are correct that the generous military promotional 3-Day and 4-Day Park Hopper tickets are not valid after December 21st this holiday season, but discounts are still available at select shopping and dining locations in the Downtown Disney District. I recently used my military discount at Ballast Point Brewing Co. Just make sure to ask each individual location when making your purchases if they offer a military discount.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. See ya real soon!
