    We are planning a trip in early March 2015 for my son's 7th birthday. How far in advance do you suggest booking hotel and purchasing park tickets. We wish to spend 1 night in one of the park hotels. Best suggestions for hotel with character dining?

    Hi, Allison!

    I’m so glad to hear you’re thinking of planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort. There’s no better place to celebrate your son’s birthday than The Happiest Place on Earth! 

    March will be here before you know it, so I suggest making your travel arrangements now—particularly if you have specific dates in mind. Vacation packages from the Walt Disney Travel Company include park tickets and a hotel stay at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels or one of the more than 40 Good Neighbor Hotels located near the resort, in addition to other special perks and surprises. For more information or for assistance with selecting the package that’s best for your family, call the Walt Disney Travel Company at (714) 520-5050. You can also reserve a Disneyland Resort Hotel and purchase theme park tickets yourself online.

    Goofy’s Kitchen, located at the Disneyland Hotel, offers a fun character meal at both brunch and dinner. It’s one of my favorite locations because of the wide variety of food choices and diverse character selection. You can also order a bakery cake to enjoy after your meal at any table-service restaurant by calling (714) 781-DINE (3463). Cakes come in a variety of sizes and can be customized especially for your son’s birthday.

    I hope this helps, Allison, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
