    Hi! My sister & I are taking my 74yr old mom to Disneyland on Jan. 22nd. She'll be on a scooter. I'd like her to see as much as possible, especially the shows & parades, can we book restaurants with views of them? Any other tips for us?

    Hi there, Gregory, and thank you for sending your question my way! I’m thrilled to be able to help you plan the logistics of your upcoming getaway to the Disneyland Resort! Here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we strive to make your visit to the theme parks as comfortable as possible. So, let’s get started!

    First off, I recommend stopping by Guest Relations as soon as you arrive at the theme parks. There’s a location in Disneyland Park at City Hall, and a location in Disney California Adventure Park at Chamber of Commerce. There, you can chat with a Cast Member to find out if your mom qualifies for any special assistance, such as Disability Access Service (DAS), depending on her specific needs. I checked the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival date, and currently, there aren’t any parades scheduled for that date. However, I’m happy to report that World of Color and Hurry Home – Lunar New Year Celebration will be taking place at Disney California Adventure Park that evening.  I checked the accessibility for World of Color, and is looks like your mom will be able to remain in her scooter for the show. I recommend arriving early to ask a Cast Member about accessible seating to accommodate her. Another option is to splurge on the World of Color Dessert Party, where your family can enjoy reserved seating for the show while indulging in a delicious selection of desserts, appetizers, and beverages. I can’t think of a better way to experience this beautiful nighttime spectacular!

    I also recommend downloading the Disneyland app, and using it to make dining reservations, check attraction wait times, find Characters, check schedules, utilize Disney MaxPass and Disney PhotoPass, and even mobile order food on-the-go. Talk about a handy helper! If your mom does qualify for DAS, keep in mind that it can be used in conjunction with Disney FASTPASS, which will maximize your time and help your mom enjoy a more comfortable visit. MaxPass can be added to your theme-park tickets on a daily basis by using the Disneyland app. MaxPass also includes unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos, which is a wonderful benefit! I highly recommend at least one member of your family adds MaxPass simply for this feature.

    Can’t wait to see ya’ real soon, Gregory!
