    My family and I will be visiting in March 2018 for my daughters 8 birthday and 30th. We have 3 day one park a day passes. I have been doing some research and getting mixed answers. California adventure ok for ages 2 and 8? or should we Disney all 3 day

    Hi, Crystal!

    I am a huge fan of Disney California Adventure Park, and I think your Mouseketeers at ages 2 and 8 will agree with me. Just having the chance to step into Cars Land  makes the trip into this magical park worth a visit! Where else can you get a snack at Flo's V8 Café, see Lightning McQueen, and even snap a picture in front of the Cozy Cone hotel? Yep, only in Radiator Springs in Disney California Adventure Park!

    Other attractions that your kids might enjoy:

    -Francis' Ladybug Boogie
    -Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sully to the Rescue!  
    -King Triton's Carousel
    -Heimlich's Chew Chew Train This is perfect for little ones, but one that I love even as an adult! Just so cute!
    -The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure

    In addition, you can dine with the Princesses at Ariel's Grotto, and take a spin on Toy Story Mania! The fun just keeps on coming for guests of all ages. 

    I suggest you visit Disneyland Park one day, then one day at Disney California Adventure Park. You can then decide which park you want to return to for your third magical day. You may be pleasantly surprised and end up back at California Adventure! 

    Wishing you a magical visit and sending birthday wishes to your Princess.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
