    Should I plan/book a Disneyland trip on my own or utilize a service like "Be Our Guest Vacations"?

    Hi Phillip, welcome to planDisney!

    I completely understand that planning a trip to the Disneyland Resort can seem daunting. While I personally haven't used third-party providers to help plan my trip, I can definitely recommend the Disneyland Resort Vacation Packages! My family and friends have booked the vacation packages, and they are truly great. These packages allow Guests to bundle their Disneyland Resort Hotel and theme park tickets, making it super convenient. Currently, these vacation packages are available for booking through December 2022. The vacation packages for 2023 should hopefully become available towards the end of summer. AND, if you want options other than one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, the Good Neighbor Hotel Vacation Packages might be your answer! There are over 50 different hotels to choose from, so there is certainly bound to be one that fits your family's size, budget, and travel style!

    As you get ready to book your magical Disney vacation, I do want to mention the Disney Genie+ service add-on. This is an add-on to your tickets, and it allows you to skip the standby lines for most attractions using the Lightning Lane entrances. The cost is currently $20 per day per ticket (prices subject to change). I have two little kiddos, so any time savings we can get from waiting in line is worth it to us. I personally am a big fan, and highly recommend Genie+!
