    Hi we are returning to Disneyland next week for the first time in forever! Growing up in CA and doing day long visits only I have never had to plan this much before! Is Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique doing makeovers? How crucial is booking dining reservations?

    Greetings Leila, and welcome to planDisney!

    Oh my goodness! You must be as excited as Princess Anna on her sister's coronation day. For the first time in forever, you'll experience the magic and fun of the Happiest Place on Earth! There have been several exciting additions since you last visited, including some like Avengers Campus and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge that have just recently joined the lineup of immersive experiences. Be sure to download the most recent version of the Disneyland mobile app so you can join virtual queues and order your food and beverage on the go.

    At this time, both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are working hard to keep both Guests and Cast Members safe by following recommendations set forth by state and local health departments. Because of this, some offerings are unavailable or modified. The Fairy Godmothers of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique have not yet returned to work, and we aren't sure when they'll be resuming royal transformations. I suggest following the Disney Parks Blog for breaking news and updates to theme park operations. If you check social media frequently, the Disney Parks Blog also has a Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram presence; while you're there, find planDisney on Twitter and Instagram too! 

    In terms of dining, if you have any must-do meals, it's best to try and reserve those in advance, up to 60 days before your trip. If you can't find what you're looking for, you might have success checking for Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability on the day of your visit. Use the Disneyland mobile app to join a same-day waitlist for many restaurants in the theme parks and resorts. 

    I hope this is helpful, Leila, and that you have a wonderful time returning to a land of magic. Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney, and if there's anything else we can do, don't hesitate to reach out again.
