    It will be our first time coming to the park where do we begin?

    Hi, Jessica! Yay! I am so excited that you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort for the first time! The memories you make during this trip will last you a lifetime.

    My first suggestion would be to view two videos that my fellow panelist, Anabel, and I host on visiting Disneyland Park (also attached to this answer) and Disney California Adventure Park for first-timers. Next step would be to explore the Disneyland Resort website and familiarize yourself with the Disneyland app. There is a wealth of information available from these two resources including attractions, hotels, tickets, and dining. Make sure to check out the park hours and entertainment schedule for your travel dates.

    Once you have read up on all the amazing things available at the Disneyland Resort, I suggest booking a vacation package at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. Each of these hotels is exquisitely themed, really close to the parks, and offer perks like Extra Magic Hour every day of your stay. The Disneyland Hotel is my absolute favorite of the three! For tickets, I suggest purchasing Park Hopper tickets so you can enjoy both parks each day. Since they are so close together, hopping back and forth is a breeze and allows for a lot of flexibility when planning your days.

    Finally, head back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have. We love helping people plan magical vacations to the Happiest Place on Earth!
