    Hi, there we are going to Disneyland in December for my daughter’s birthday and early Christmas present. I would like to know if there are any fun countdown printouts or fun countdown ideas?

    Welcome, LaShawnda!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Celebrating a birthday during the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort sounds practically perfect in every way. Your daughter is going to have the trip of a lifetime!

    I love your idea of creating a trip countdown for your magical vacation. While there are not any official products, there are a ton of creative ideas I have seen families use when counting down for their Disney trips. I definitely advise checking Pinterest for ideas or searching products on Etsy. For something more "DIY" you can create something as simple as a dry erase board with the countdown or a sticker calendar. Another popular idea is creating a construction paper chain and removing the "links" as each day nears. There are also some great (and free) countdown apps you can use on your mobile device. I like the idea of having a picture frame where you change the number of days in the center with chalk or dry erase marker.

    Make sure you download the official Disneyland app prior to arrival so you can start viewing park maps, planning, and making dining reservations. For Table Service restaurants and Character meals you can make reservations on the Disneyland app, online, or by calling (714) 781-3463 up to 60 days in advance.

    Please return if you have any other questions as I'd love to help make your trip packed with pixie dust!
