    First visit - what are the best rides/attractions for an almost 2 year old boy and a 7 year old girl?

    Howdy, David, and congratulations on your first visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    Be sure to stop by City Hall in Disneyland Park, or Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park, for a special complimentary “1st Visit” button for your whole family. Cast Members love welcoming you on your first visit!

    Next, I recommend getting familiar with the Baby Care Centers, located inside both parks. These Centers are the perfect spot to feed, change, or simply take a break. Be sure to ask for a complimentary Mickey Mouse sticker on your way out!

    You can research attractions ahead of time by checking out this handy guide, which includes a filter by height. As a mom of three children ages 3, 5, and 7, I understand how difficult it can be to find an attraction that pleases everyone, but, I promise, it can be done! Some of our favorite attractions to ride together include Toy Story Midway Mania!, Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters, Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, “it’s a small world”, Casey Jr. Circus Train, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mad Tea Party, and The Disneyland Railroad. We also love taking a break and watching shows and parades, like Disney Junior Dance Party!, Mickey and the Magical Map, Storytelling at Royal Theatre, Mickey’s Soundsational Parade, and Mickey’s Mix Magic.

    Lastly, I recommend downloading the Disneyland app, which allows you to check wait times, find favorite Characters, utilize Disney MaxPass, and even order food and drinks ahead of time, which is a game-changer with younger Mouseketeers!

    Wishing you a magical first visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

Meet the Panelist: Kristin, California

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
