    I'm looking for advice on what to do this weekend. My 5 year old son and I definitely want to hit StarWars, but he hasn't done any roller coasters yet. Is there enough stuff to do at Adventure Park for him? Trying to decide on tickets (hopper?).

    Bright Suns, Michele, 

    Thanks for coming by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Disneyland Resort is a wonderful place to visit with your son. I hope your visit is as magical as you dream.

    Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is so much fun for guests of all ages. My young daughter enjoyed helping her mother build an astromech droid unit at Droid Depot. And we all loved sampling blue and green milk. I recommend downloading the Play Disney Parks app before your visit. The included Star Wars: Datapad makes your visit to the Black Spire Outpost even more amazing. Hondo Ohnaka may even have some credits to share with you in the Datapad if you do a good job flying the Millennium Falcon.

    You’ve asked a good question about Park Hopper tickets. My personal preference is to enjoy both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park each time we visit the Disneyland Resort. Your choice of purchasing Park Hoppers or not may depend on how many days you plan to visit and the types of attractions you want to enjoy. Frankly, there is plenty to fill a day in Disneyland Park alone. And if a visit to Batuu is your main priority, a one-park ticket is probably adequate for a single-day visit. Gadget, from the Rescue Rangers, even has a fun little roller coaster that your son would probably love.

    If you are planning a multi-day visit, I do recommend the convenience of Park Hopper tickets. There is much to see and do for younger Mouseketeers at Disney California Adventure Park. There is a dance party with friends from Disney Junior. Enjoy exploration and discovery at Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. Meeting favorite characters from Radiator Springs always brings a smile. And “adventure is out there” at Pixar Pier, where Jessie's Critter Carousel, Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, and Toy Story Midway Mania! are fun for guests of all ages.

    Have a magical time, Michele!
