    Hi moms panel, my son wanted to visit the Disneyland region for his 16th birthday, but we have NO idea on how to plan for a Disneyland trip. We are on a tight budget but still want to enjoy everything the parks have to offer. Please Help.

    Hi there John!  Now is the perfect time to visit Disneyland because with the recent expansion at California Adventure Park including Cars Land and Buena Vista Street along with exciting new things at Disneyland..."The Happiest Place on Earth Just Got Happier."

    The key to a successful Disneyland vacation is advanced planning!  I recommend beginning months in advance if possible.  You can start by ordering a Disney Parks Planning DVD online which will give you lots of information and will help you easily transition into the planning phase of your vacation.  There are many factors to consider when planning:  TIme of year, accommodations, duration of your trip, dining.  By browsing the official Disneyland website, you'll be able to research everything that Disneyland Resort has to offer before making your decisions.

    With advanced planning and a few tricks, a Disneyland vacation can be more affordable than you may think!  There are 3 uniquely priced hotels located on Disneyland property, and there are also numerous Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotels scattered within walking distance from the parks!  I recently answered a question here on the panel and in my response, I included some tips and tricks on how to stretch your dollar when vacationing to Disneyland on a budget! You can click the link below to read my response!

    -Disneyland on a Budget

    Hope this gets you started.  As you begin planning, be sure to come back here to ask me any questions!  I know you'll think of some, and I'm here to help!
