    Do you still offer the free Disneyland planning DVD? I’d really like to have one to help my kids get excited about what Disney has to offer. I’ve tried looking up YouTube videos but I don’t think it does it justice. They are 7 and 9. Thank you!

    Hello, dear Katie! 

    I'm so glad that your kids are getting excited about a Disney vacation! They're at such magical ages! 

    While Disney doesn't offer the planning DVDs anymore, I'm thrilled to share that you will find a wealth of content available to energize the whole family! And even better: it's probably already available, on-demand, in your house under a Disney+ subscription

    Disney+ has a lot of content telling the stories behind attractions, behind the team of Imagineers that create Disney experiences, and much more, so let me recommend a few favorites: 

  • Magic of Disney's Animal Kingdom: This charming, uplifting, and fun series tells the stories behind Disney's most unique Theme Park. National Geographic curates its content, and Josh Gad is the narrator (you may recognize him as Olaf's voice!), making it educational and yet very, very light. 

  • The Imagineering Story: I adore this series because it tells the story of all Disney theme parks through the lenses of the department that embodies Disney's ability to create themed experiences: the Imagineers. If your kids are into STEM, design, or visual arts, they will have a BLAST. You can even have them create unique crafts and drawings after each episode based on what they watched, and it's going to be super fun. Spoiler alert: they will become Mary Blair fans! 

  • Behind The Attraction: This one was produced by Dwayne Johnson (yes, THE Rock!), and it's focused on specific attractions. It's also light and full of family-friendly puns that your kids will love. 

  • After diving into Disney+, I hope that you can give YouTube a second chance, as a few Disney-curated playlists cover specific themes that may be exciting for your kiddos. They are: 

  • Disneyland Playlist: This covers multiple experiences at the Disneyland Resort while showcasing recent innovations such as Genie and Genie+, seasonal festivals, new offerings like the Tenaya Stone Spa, and much more! 

  • Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Playlist: I like this content because most of this playlist applies to the Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort. It will transport you and the kids to a galaxy far, far away for sure! 

  • Avenger Campus Playlist: These heroes don't need introductions, but these videos will give you details about Avenger Campus that will surely make your little Avengers assemble to pack in a jiff! 

  • I hope these tips help you get your family excited for your next Disney trip, Katie! Let us know if you have more questions. We love to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
