    Hello, We are planning our first trip to Disneyland. My kids are 9 months old and 4.5years old. Do you think i can visit the park for 2-3days by myself with the kiddos and still enjoy it? My husband can join us for extra couple of days at the end.

    Hi, Jasmina!

    I think you should seize the opportunity to spend as much time as possible at the Disneyland Resort! It can be much more manageable than you might think if you do some advance planning. Bringing along or renting a double stroller will make a big difference. Exploring the parks requires lots of walking, and having a seat for each of your kids may make for smoother sailing for all three of you.

    With the help of Disney FASTPASS, you'll have a chance to experience your must-dos while avoiding long waits in line. If there is no minimum height requirement at an attraction or it is advertised as being for “any height,” then it’s safe for your baby to ride! Once your husband arrives, take advantage of the Rider Switch program. It allows Guests with small children to take turns experiencing attractions without waiting in line twice. 

    It’s a great idea to build downtime and naps into your schedule so the little ones (and maybe you, too!) can rest. You’ll be able to see the theme parks at a more leisurely pace and also minimize meltdowns. Additionally, the Baby Care Centers in the parks are a great resource for parents that you’ll want to take advantage of during your stay. They provide full-size changing tables, high chairs, private nursing spaces and baby food prepping areas away from the hustle and bustle of the parks for your convenience.

    I hope this helps, Jasmina, and that your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is all you’ve been dreaming! Please write back with more questions as you continue planning. 

    Wishing you magic,
