    Hey Kim!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like the start to a wonderful trip will be here before you know it!

    You’re going to love Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel! I just stayed there last month and it was just a dream! You’re going to love the California beach theme throughout the resort. You’ll find an array of dining, shopping and recreation activities for the whole family! The staff there is amazing and they’ll make sure you have the Best Day Ever! Included with your stay is Extra Magic Hour which gives you access to either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park one hour before the general public for every day of your stay. Check the schedule to see what day aligns with your stay.

    In order to enter Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, you’re going to need a paid admission. This is NOT included with a hotel reservation unless you added tickets at the time you booked your room or if you booked a package that included tickets either through Disney or a third party vendor. If you didn’t add tickets to your hotel stay or purchased a package that included them don't worry, you’re sure to find a ticket option that works for you from all the different options that are available. Whether you're looking for one, two or five days at the parks, Disney has you covered with a ticket that fits your needs. You can purchase them at the hotel, the ticket booths in The Esplanade, online or through the Disneyland Mobile App.

    Well Kim, I hope you enjoy your trip and are able to create memories together on your vacation.

    Remember, always believe in the magic!
