    hi is there a way for us to get help planning an itinerary for our 4 days during Thanksgiving for a 5 and 7 year old? Thanks in advance

    Hello, Natalie! You've come to the right place! Here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we love helping families like yours plan fabulous visits to the Disneyland Resort!

    Thanksgiving is a fun time to visit as the parks will most likely be decked out in Holiday decor which makes visiting even more magical. First, take a look at a few vacation planning videos about the Disneyland Resort. Then, as you start to plan your itinerary, consider starting your days early and taking advantage of any early admission options that might be available to you. You can really get a lot done in the morning hours. If you are staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels, you will have access to Extra Magic Hour every day of your trip. Plus, the extra hour at Disney California Adventure Park is only for Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests. Then, make sure to take full advantage of Disney FASTPASS Service. This will help you skip the queues to most of the large attractions.

    After you have a loose plan for your four-day vacation, start thinking about making dining reservations. There are lots of scrumptious places to eat and you can make reservations up to 60 days in advance online or by calling (714) 781-3463. If you plan to experience any character dining options, advanced reservations are highly recommended.

    Finally, return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if any other questions pop up along the way. We are here to help!
