    We are excited to attend both CA parks next week! We have a 10yo and 11yo and haven't been to the parks since the kids were very small. What ride itinerary would you recommend for these ages? We are going to one park per day. Thank you!

    Hey there, Brita! Thank you so much for bringing your question to planDisney! I just got SO excited for your family's upcoming trip back to The Happiest Place on Earth. I have loved experiencing the parks through the different ages of my kids, but I have to say the stage your kids are in is one of my favorites. They are most likely tall enough for every ride in the park, and that right there is a game-changer!

    Since you are doing one park per day, I highly suggest checking out the all-new Disney Genie+ service, at least for your Disneyland Park day -- as there are more attractions to conquer in this park. You can purchase this for each ticket as soon as you enter the turnstiles and are scanned in. This will let you grab Lightning Lane (similar to what was FastPass) reservations throughout the day for many experiences that will have longer wait times. My other tip that our family still incorporates on every trip is for each of us to pick our TOP must-do experience. This helps manage expectations and gives us a good start to a game plan going in on our day. From there you can add in whatever else your family wants to explore and experience. 

    Brita, I hope this helps your family plan your trip to the Disneyland Resort. There's been many changes and additions since you last visited, so you have a lot of exciting lands and attractions to discover! Don't forget to take some breaks to enjoy all the snacks, especially the Mickey-shaped ones. See ya real soon!

Well hello friend! I'm Carrie, a work-from-home mama and military wife who currently calls sunny San Diego home. We love that we are close enough to Disneyland Resort to make a last-minute trip to see the Mouse quite frequently. You'll find us in the parks braving drops and coasters to work up our appetite to take as many snack breaks as we can fit in! I love helping my friends plan memorable trips to Disneyland Resort and can't wait to help you too! Learn More About Carrie
