    We are trying to plan a trip to Disneyland. We have children ranging in age from 1 1/2 to 15. We are only planning on one day. Obviously teens want roller coasters. Is it possible to please both age groups at one park?

    Howdy, Jeanette!

    I’m excited to hEAR that you’re considering a visit to the Disneyland Resort in December – there’s nothing more magical than celebrating the Holidays at the Happiest Place on Earth

    Yes, it is possible to please both of those age groups at one park! Disneyland Park offers a great mix of classic thrilling attractions, like Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and Indiana Jones Adventure, and family favorites like “it’s a small world”, Peter Pan’s Flight, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant. Another option for your family is a 1-Day Park Hopper Ticket, which allows you to enjoy the best of both parks, since they’re within short walking distance of each other! That gives your teens a bit more freedom to branch out and try other thrilling attractions at Disney California Adventure Park, such as Guardians of the Galaxy -- Mission: BREAKOUT!, Incredicoaster, and Radiator Springs Racers.

    There are plenty of experiences at both parks that should appeal to all family members, including Mickey's Soundsational Parade, Mickey's Mix Magic, Fantasmic!, and World of Color. Be sure to download the Disneyland app to check wait times, find your favorite Characters, make dining reservations, and even order food and drinks ahead of time. 

    Wishing you Disney magic!
