    I’m planning a family vacation with kids from the ages 3, 6, and 10 what would be the best themed parks to visit for all three

    Greetings, Jennifer! Congratulations on your upcoming visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! As a mom of three children under the age of 8, I can relate to your desire to find the best solution to make everyone happy. Easier said than done, right?! I believe the perfect way to meet the needs of your entire family is to purchase Park Hopper Tickets. This way, you can access both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park throughout your Disney days. The Disneyland Resort is ideal for park hopping, since both theme parks are just a short distance from each other, and you can easily go back-and-forth between them.

    I highly recommend downloading the Disneyland app and adding Disney MaxPass to your tickets, too. Disney MaxPass allows you to make FASTPASS selections directly from your phone, which is especially helpful when park hopping. You can even make a FASTPASS reservation for one park while you’re still in the other park! Keep in mind that you can’t start making FASTPASS selections until you’ve entered either park.

    Some of my family’s favorite attractions to ride together include Toy Story Midway Mania!, Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters, Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, “it’s a small world”, the Disneyland Railroad and Disneyland Monorail, Jungle Cruise, and Autopia. Shows and parades are also a great way to entertain the whole family. Some of our favorites are Disney Junior Dance Party!, Mickey and the Magical Map, Fantasmic!, and Mickey’s Soundsational Parade. 

    Wishing you Disney magic as you continue planning your dream trip!

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!
