    We are planning my son's first trip to Disneyland/CA Adventure Jan 2-5 2019. He will be almost 2.5 yo. I would like book the Disneyland Hotel but they are only taking bookings through Dec 31. When will the dates will open up to reserve? Other tips?

    Hey there, Madison! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question!

    The Disneyland Hotel is my absolute favorite hotel and I think it would be a great choice for your little one's first visit to the Disneyland Resort! Hotel reservations are now available for all of 2019, so take another look online to see the rates available for your travel dates. If you would like to book your theme park tickets and hotel accommodations together, then a vacation package would be the perfect choice. You can even add character dining vouchers to your package which allow you to pre-pay for your meal. Only $200 is required to book your package and then you can make payments in any amount and any frequency you wish as long as your package is paid in full 30 days prior to your arrival date. 

    As a special treat for your son's first visit, consider booking a meal at Goofy's Kitchen right inside the Disneyland Hotel. This meal is super fun because you can meet Goofy and his pals while you dine on a delectable variety of food from the buffet. Also, don't forget to take a dip in the magnificent pools located at this hotel. There are small water slides that are perfect for little ones. Life vests are also available free of charge for children if your son isn't a strong swimmer yet. 

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions about the Disneyland Hotel or any other aspect of your trip, please stop by again!
