    Which park is the best for my 4 year old son who loves Toy Story. We would love to get him a photo with the characters. Since the Pixar Fest is going on at California Adventure Park are the characters no longer available to see at Disneyland?

    Hey Howdy Hey Stephanie!

    You've got a friend in me here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and I'd love to help your son experience Toy Story fun at the Disneyland Resort. There are attractions, Characters, fun merchandise, and themed foods to celebrate this classic film universe.

    In Disneyland Park you can travel to infinity and beyond and as your son defeats Zurg in Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. While you are in Tomorrowland, you will also want to visit the all-new Pixar Fest eatery, Alien Pizza Planet. Here you will get to feast on out-of-this-world food with your favorite little green men. "Ooooohhhh!"

    In Disney California Adventure Park, you'll definitely want to test your skills in Toy Story Midway Mania, where you can participate in a 4D arcade-style attraction. Even though my toddler may not have the best aim, he still loves this attraction for the music and appearances by so many Toy Story Characters. In Disney California Adventure Park's Paradise Gardens is where you have the best chance of meeting some of these Characters for pictures and autographs. Still keep an eye on the Disneyland app for locations and meeting times of Characters throughout both parks.

    As you mentioned, Pixar Fest is in full swing at both parks. You will be able to see even more of your Pixar Pals and Toy Story friends in the Pixar Play Parade at Disneyland Park and the Paint the Night Parade at Disney California Adventure Park. You won't want to miss seeing a vibrant light-up Slinky Dog in this spectacular nighttime parade.

    I hope this helps, and feel free to return with any other questions. So long, partner!
