    Hi. I am taking my family to Disneyland (Anaheim) in a few weeks. I have been there before although it was 20 years ago. It is the first trip for my kids aged 11, 10 and 8. I wanted to make the trip extra special for them. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hi, Belinda!

    Welcome back to the Disneyland Resort! A lot has changed since your last visit, so you are in for a very magical experience. Just being together as a family in the Disneyland Resort will be special, but here are some ideas for you and your family:

    -Contact Disney Floral and Gifts. Arrange a fun delivery to your resort hotel room. It is a super surprise to come back to your room and have a special delivery waiting! You can order online or call them at (714)781-4438.

    -Make a Dining Reservation for a character meal. Goofy's Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel is one of my favorites! Enjoy a delicious buffet with Goofy and his pals as you get photos and autographs.

    -For an evening of magic, book the World of Color Dessert Party. You will be in a reserved area with spectacular views of the nighttime spectacular while enjoying out of this world dessert delights!

    -Stop by Cars Land just before dusk. Grab a milkshake at Flo's V8 Café, and relax on a bench. Slowly, the neon signs start to glow and the music plays as Radiator Springs comes to life. "Oh, Life Could be a Dream, Sh-boom"....Sing along! It is like you stepped right into the Cars Movie in this darling little town!

    I am sure you and your family will make magical memories that will last a lifetime. One thing has NOT changed since you visited 20 years ago...Disneyland is still the Happiest Place on Earth!
