    Need help planning a 50th wedding anniversary trip.

    Hi Claudia,

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. I'm happy to help get you started on planning a 50th Anniversary trip. What a wonderful occasion to celebrate!

    You didn't indicate your travel dates., but there is much excitement in store for guests in 2024. I'd start by reviewing some of the upcoming happenings at Disneyland Resort to see if any of these events match your preferred dates. If you already have a time of year in mind, you can book a Vacation Package which includes accommodations at one of the three on-property resorts (or select Good Neighbor hotels) as well as theme park tickets. I have a special place in my heart for Disneyland Hotel, but Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa would be an incredible place to stay for such a special trip. Packages can be booked online or you can call (714) 520-5060 for Cast Member assistance.

    If this is your first visit you might want to stick with 1-park per day tickets as there is more than enough magic to fill an entire day at either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. If you're a Disneyland Resort pro you can always opt for Park Hopper tickets as it's just a quick stroll across the Esplanade between the entrances of the two parks. Please note that regardless of the ticket type purchased, theme park reservations are currently required for entry into the parks in addition to valid admission.

    Since you're celebrating an anniversary, I'd opt for a romantic meal to commemorate your wedded bliss. Blue Bayou Restaurant at Disneyland Park is set in perpetual twilight and offers a cozy place to dine on Creole-inspired cuisine, while Carthay Circle Restaurant at Disney California Adventure Park will give you all the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood Golden Age, with an impressive elevated menu. You can begin making advance dining reservations online or through the Disneyland Mobile App 60 days before your visit.

    I always love looking back on our cherished vacation memories, so I'd also recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ Service with your package. Not only will this help reduce your standby wait times at popular attractions in both parks, but it also includes unlimited downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass and attraction photos captured during your trip.

    I hope this helps get you started Claudia! If you have additional questions or need more specific guidance on choosing a hotel, navigating the parks or anything else, please don't hesitate to come back and let us know.

    Wishing you a magical celebration!
