    I am planning on taking my 6 year old and 5 year old sons but i am having a hard time picking which park to choose from which one do you guys recommend for thereage

    Dear Ximena,
    While both theme parks at the Disneyland Resort have magical attractions, shows and events for guests of all ages,
    if you're only able to visit one Park, I would recommend you visit Disneyland! Here's why:
    * Rides. There are numerous attractions suitable for five and six year old kids! There are classic rides like "it's a small world" and Dumbo the Flying Elephants to Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters and Pirates of the Caribbean, suitable for all ages!
    * Pictures. Disneyland features the iconic Sleeping Beauty castle. There's no better way of showing that you were at the Happiest Place on Earth than with a picture in front of the castle! Disney PhotoPass photographers will be happy to photograph you and your kids for memories that will last forever!
    * Food. The Disneyland Park offers two very delicious and unique food items that you can't get at California Adventure. One of those is the famous Dole Whip, a cold treat served next to the Enchanted Tiki Room. The other is a hand-dipped corn dog from the Little Red Wagon on Main Street USA. These snacks alone make the visit worthwhile!
    * Mickey's Toontown. Where else can a child visit Mickey's house and get to meet the Mouse himself? There is also an opportunity to visit Minnie's House, play on Donald's Boat and even ride a roller coaster meant for young thrill-seekers!
    * Fantasmic! The amazing nighttime spectacular is back at Disneyland and this show will make your kids remember their visit for years to come. I promise.
    I hope this helps.
    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
