    I am starting to plan a trip to Disneyland for around Thanksgiving 2023, but would like to work with someone to plan the trip. Do you have any trip planners that help with this type of request?

    Hello there, Judy!

    I'm so glad that you found us here at planDisney! Before we begin, let me tell you a little about what we do. We are enthusiastic and knowledgeable guests who show an interest in assisting others plan their perfect Disney vacation. We are not travel agents so we are unable to book hotels, tickets or experiences for you. However, we are more than happy to help you plan your special Thanksgiving trip and to give you our recommendations based on our experiences within the Disneyland Resort!

    How exciting that you are planning a trip towards the end of this year! Have you considered booking a Vacation Package which would include your hotel stay and Park tickets? I love staying on property at an official Disneyland Resort Hotel because it seems like you never have to leave the Magic! I am a huge fan of the history of Disneyland so my favorite is the Disneyland Hotel. There are also a number of Good Neighbor Hotels in the area, many within walking distance to the Parks. 

    A valid ticket and reservation are required for entry into the Parks. Reservations open up 120 days in advance, so be sure to mark the date in your calendar depending on when you plan to visit. Next, dining reservations may be made 60 days in advance of your trip. Don't get discouraged if you don't see availability at a restaurant you would like to reserve. Oftentimes, reservations will open up if you keep checking. My all-time favorite meal is breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen! The food is fantastic and I love seeing the characters come by as you enjoy your meal!

    I love visiting the Disneyland Resort at that time of year. Exact dates have not yet been announced, but we know that they will be decorating for the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort and that the Festival of Holidays will return to Disney California Adventure. The Cast Members do a phenomenal job decorating for the Holidays and it's a picture-worthy view everywhere you look!

    Judy, I hope you find this information helpful. As your trip gets closer, feel free to write back to us here at planDisney or you can write back to me directly if you would like further help planning your trip! I'd love to give you more specific recommendations once I know what type of trip you'd like! 

    To Adventure in the Great Wide Somewhere!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
