    Hi Starting to plan my trip to disneyland. Would like to speak to someone regarding hotels and parks. As well as any package deals.

    Hello Jessica from one Midwesterner to another!  That is so exciting that you're planning a trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth"!  

    I would recommend exploring both the Disneyland Resort Hotel Vacation Packages, as well as the Disney approved Good Neighbor Hotel Vacation Packages to see which one is the best fit for your family.  You truly cannot go wrong!  Both types of vacation packages will include both hotel accommodations as well as theme park tickets for 2-5 days with admission to one park per day, either Disneyland Park, or Disney California Adventure Park.  You can also choose to upgrade your theme park tickets to Park Hopper tickets which will allow for admission to both parks in one day for an additional fee.  Both parks are located close together which makes park hopping very convenient!

    After you secure your hotel and theme park tickets, the next key step Jessica will be to make a theme park reservation for each day you plan to visit the parks.  You can check the theme park reservation availability calendar to ensure there is availability for your desired dates, and I recommend making these reservations as soon as you can!

    Next comes the fun part of planning out activities, attractions, and dining options for what is important for your family!  There is a list of attractions and entertainment for both parks you can explore, and I recommend making a list of your top 3-5 priorities for each park day, and try to accomplish those first.  

    If your family loves Disney food and snacks like mine does, I highly recommend making advanced dining reservations online at the Disneyland website or through the Disneyland app, and you are able to make these up to 60 days in advance.  I also would take advantage of utilizing the mobile order feature in the Disneyland app to conveniently order your food and snacks while in the parks to help save precious time!  

    Those are just the basics that I would recommend to help get your trip planning started Jessica, but please do not hesitate to come back with any other questions, I would love to help make your trip planning as seamless as possible!

    Have a magical day!
