    I am planning a trip to Disneyland in September of 2022 for two 1 year olds, one 2 year old, a 7 year old, 8 year old, and 4 adults. We want all the bells and whistles. What can we do? Where do we stay? What is all available for us?

    Hey Katelyn!

    A warm welcome from all of us here at planDisney!

    It sounds like you’re ready for an enchanting trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! The Disneyland Resort is the perfect vacation for adults and kids of all ages! Because of the park closures and the theme parks and hotels being closed, we still don’t know what will be available once everything reopens. Your vacation is pretty far out so I’ll give you some ideas on what I would do with what was available before the closures. I do want to mention that we don't know what everything will look like upon reopning and some things may not be available.

    For someone who wants all the bells and whistles you’re going to want to stay at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. It’s my favorite hotel on property and I’m proud to call it one of my Disney Vacation Club Home Resorts. You’ll enjoy craftsman style elegance with the best service. For rooms selections, you could either book 2 Premium View rooms that sleep five or go with something larger like a 2 Bedroom Suite that sleeps 11 or a 3 Bedroom Suite that sleeps 12. I would definitely book club level so that you can enjoy access to the The Veranda where you’ll enjoy soft drinks, sparkling water, coffee, hot tea, iced tea, soda, juice, and a nice selection of beer and wine. Throughout the day you’ll enjoy an assortment of hors d’oeuvre-style options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don’t forget the sweets at the end of the night! Right outside The Veranda is the concierge desk that can help you with park tickets, dining reservations and more. If you’re looking for the ultimate splurge, you can book a Signature Suite that sleeps 12 with one of the four specialty themes.

    As far as the theme parks go, you're going to want to get Park Hopper tickets for the amount of days that you’re going to want to visit the parks. You’re also going to want to book a Disneyland Resort VIP Tour where you’ll get the royal treatment from you’re own private tour guide. Your guide will design a customized day based on your family’s needs and must dos. They can even book dining reservations too! You’ll get priority access to attractions, character greetings, shows and reserved seatings at things like parades and fireworks. It’s the best way to maximize your time in the parks and make sure everyone gets do do what they want.

    No vacation would be complete without dining! Napa Rose and Steakhouse 55 are the best restaurants on property with some really amazing food! My wife and I take our kids there all the time and they love it! They also love character dining so you’re going to want to book that as well. I recommend Minnie & Friends- Breakfast in the Park and Mickey’s Tales of Adventure Breakfast Buffet.

    Well Katelyn, I hope I gave you some good ideas for your trip. Remember, some of these things I mentioned may be unavailable or modified upon the reopening of the parks, but rest assured that the magic will always be there.

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
