    Me and my mom are celebrating Mother’s Day in Disneyland and I was wondering if Disneyland is doing anything special for that day?

    Hiya, Jennifer!

    Welcome to planDisney! What a great idea to spend Mother's Day in Disneyland Park with your mom. Making new memories is always a lovely way to celebrate!

    Disneyland Resort has a wonderful tradition of giving a carnation to each mom who visits the parks on Mother's Day. I hope to see them continue that tradition this year! There will also be some special treats available at the resort, which you can read about in this delicious Disney Eats Foodie Guide for Mother's Day 2024. Just scroll down a bit in the guide to get to the Disneyland Resort section.

    I would also recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ Service for the day because that includes unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass images! How fun would it be to take photos together across the park? Make sure you ask about magic shots to get a little extra pixie dust sprinkled in those photos!

    Speaking of pixie dust, if you and your mom love happy thoughts you should stop by the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and ask a Fairy Godmother's Apprentice to make you and your mom sparkle. It's complimentary, and it makes me so happy all day long! I love getting pixie dusted in the parks with my daughter, and the words that the apprentice says as they wave their magic wand are so sweet. 

    You might also be able to visit one of my favorite Disney moms at the Pixar Pals Playtime Party...Mrs. Incredible! She is the literal "super mom" and I just adore her ambition and devotion. Even if she gets caught up fighting crime somewhere else, there is plenty of fun to be had at the party. How often do you literally get to dance with Joy? Sounds like a good Mother's Day activity to me! 

    If your mom loves a great souvenir then you should check out Plaza Point on Main Street, U.S.A. to look for a beautiful ornament or frame to remember your trip. There are talented artists who can customize some items, too!   

    Jennifer, you're already giving your mom the best possible gift by spending the day with her. I hope you both feel all the love and happiness in the world during your visit! 

    Keep moving forward!
