    Hey, I am planning to visit disney next week. How should we plan our trips. We have 4 and 8 year old. Also do GM employees get discounted tkts. If yes, what’s the procedure?

    Hello, Rabiah!

    Welcome to planDisney, it's nice to meet you! 

    The easiest way to plan your visit is to use the Disneyland website to make reservations and purchase your tickets. While some employers do offer discounted tickets, that is something you would need to ask your own company about. I would suggest starting with human resources.

    If you do need to purchase tickets, you can do that on the Disneyland website. There is a great special offer on 3-day park tickets right now, too! You'll need to make a few decisions when you're buying your park tickets:

    • Select the ticket type (a standard ticket or one of the current promotional offers) and the number of days you want to visit.
    • Choose how many adult tickets and how many child tickets you need.
    • Decide if you want to do one park per day (my preference with small children) or upgrade to Park Hopper tickets. 
    During the purchase process, you'll be asked to choose the days you want to be in the parks and which parks you want to visit each day. This is definitely the easiest way to purchase tickets and make theme park reservations (both required for each day of your visit) at once! 

    If you also need a hotel then you can purchase a Disneyland Resort Hotel Vacation Package or a Good Neighbor Hotel Vacation Package. That option lets you purchase tickets and your hotel at the same time! 

    If you'd like a little extra planning help I would recommend calling the Vacation Packages phone number on the Disneyland website. This might be your best option since your trip is so soon. The Cast Members are wonderful and will be happy to help you get everything planned!

    Will this be your first visit to the Disneyland Resort? If so, this Disneylandp-focused episode of the planDisney Podcast is an amazing resource for new visitors. My friends Tishra and Al talk about dining, entertainment, and attractions all in one great episode! You can also explore the attractions page to see what looks exciting to your kids, check height requirements, and decide what your personal "must-see" experiences are at the parks. Planning is half the fun!

    I hope this information gives you a good start as you plan a wonderful vacation, Rabiah!

    Keep moving forward!
