    Hello! So I am looking for some advice. I am planning our first family trip with our new daughter! She will be 1 week shy of a year old when we arrive to Disney. What are some tips for visiting the park with a one year old and what rides can she go on?

    Hiya, Kayla! I am SO thrilled for your first family trip with your daughter, and what better place to celebrate her first birthday than at the Happiest Place on Earth! Be sure to stop by City Hall in Disneyland Park, or Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park, for a complimentary “1st Visit” button for your daughter. Even if you don’t pin it on her, you could still take a cute picture of her with the button on Main Street, U.S.A. Memories of a first visit will last a lifetime! 

    You’re definitely going to want to get acquainted with the Baby Care Centers, located inside both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. They were a lifesaver for me when my children were babies. Not only are they a great place to feed, change, or nurse, but they’re also a perfect spot to purchase baby necessities, like diapers and wipes.

    Luckily, the Disneyland Resort theme parks are the ultimate family-friendly destination, so there are plenty of attractions that you and your family can ride together. Simply filter the Attraction list by “Any height” to see which Attractions will work for your family. Some of my children’s favorite Attractions as babies were “it’s a small world”, Casey Jr. Circus Train, the Disneyland Railroad, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. 

    Lastly, I recommend downloading the Disneyland app, which allows you to check wait times, find favorite Characters, utilize Disney MaxPass, and even order food and drinks ahead of time.

    Wishing you a pixie-dusted vacation full of magical memories!

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!

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!
