    I'll be visiting Disneyland for the first time during the Disney D23 Expo and I want to know which park is the "easiest / fastest" to get through if I want to pop in during an EXPO day. Thank you!

    Hi Meghan,

    A visit to Disneyland and D23 all in one trip sounds incredibly magical!

    As you can imagine, the D23 Expo draws large crowds to the Disneyland Resort during a time of year when families tend to gravitate toward the Happiest Place on Earth anyway because kids are out of school (summer).

    With that said, if you want to make a quick visit to a Park during an Expo day, here's what I recommend:

    1. Purchase a Disney Park Hopper Ticket. This will allow you to make a quick stop at Disneyland and do a couple of unique things that are exclusive to the Disneyland Park, like purchase a refreshing and delicious Dole Whip, which is the best cold treat during a hot summer day! And take a picture in front of the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle which is so necessary, especially if it's your first trip to Disneyland!

    2. Once you've taken a few moments to experience the happy vibes and colorful views of the Disneyland Park, make your way to the Disney California Adventure Park. This Park tends to be less crowded and you can probably even sneak in a summer-appropriate ride like the Grizzly River Run between D23 workshops.You can shop 'till you drop there, enjoy an amazing theatrical production (Frozen - Live at the Hyperion) and the Disney California Adventure Park also offers adult beverages and great dining options.

    I hope this helps!
