    We are a family of 4 visiting Disneyland for just one day, 25th July. We would like to take our 8 yr old on Space Mountain but also have a 5 yr old boy. Does Anaheim Disneyland have a supervised kids club that he can attend for an hour and a half?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lalla. Thanks for stopping by with your question for us.

    There is a supervised children activity center called Pinocchio's Workshop, located inside the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. For an extra fee, this is an amenity available to Guests staying at any of the 3 Disneyland Resort hotels. Children between ages 5 and 12 will be able to enjoy the activities at Pinocchio's Workshop from 2 pm until 11pm, 7 days a week.

    If you're concerned about your child not being able to ride Hyperspace Mountain but you'd like to enjoy it with your 8 year old, there is Rider Switch option available. When you enter the queue for Hyperspace Mountain, let the Cast Member at the entrance know that you'd like to use the Rider Switch service. He or she will provide you with directions as to where to go. Usually, you'll wait together as a family and then when it is your turn to experience the ride, one adult will stay with the child who is unable to ride. Then, the adults will switch off, eliminating the need to wait in line again.

    I hope this information is helpful for you. If you have further questions while planning your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, please visit us on the Panel again, Lalla.

Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
