    Is the Jedi training available at Disneyland? I have a seven year old son who loves rides, any suggestions on the best park to spend our day or could we do both parks in one day? We are staying at Disneyland Grand Ca in January. Thanks for any suggestions!

    Hi, Catherine and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm so excited for your upcoming Disneyland Resort vacation! You are going to love staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. One of my favorite perks of staying there is the convenient location, including special entrances to both Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District. 

    Even though the last Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple was held in November, there’s still plenty of Star Wars magic to be found at Disneyland Park! To help prepare for the exciting opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge this summer, you’ll want to check out the interactive Star Wars Launch Bay exhibit at Disneyland. Here, you and your son can meet favorite characters in iconic Star Wars’ environments! 

    Since your son loves rides, he won’t want to miss Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, also in Disneyland Park. It’s a 3D space flight he’ll never forget! 

    If you plan on starting your day early, you shouldn’t have a problem visiting both Parks in one day. You’ll also want to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hour you get as a Guest of a Disneyland Resort Hotel. This will help you tackle your “must-do” rides before the general public arrives. 

    My son (who is also 7-years old) can’t get enough of Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure Park. Toy Story Midway Mania! is his personal favorite.

    I hope this helps as you plan your dream Disney getaway!

    See ya’ real soon!
