    We’re visiting Disneyland with our almost-3 year old. What are the best areas for her to have safe, unstructured (i.e. not on a ride) play?

    Hello Lillie!   

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question!

    Visiting the Disneyland Resort with young children is one of my favorite things to do! I am able to experience the attractions I don’t often get a chance to visit. Last fall, my husband’s cousin and her young children took a trip to the Disneyland Resort. While there, they enjoyed playing at Redwood Creek Challenge Trail in Disney California Adventure Park. This outdoor play area is perfect for preschoolers. Little Mouseketeers can explore, climb, swing and play in the great outdoors. Most of the experiences in this area have no age or height requirement. Also, be sure to check out Disney Junior Dance Party! Kids can dance and laugh along with Doc McStuffins and Vampirina while the DJ plays songs from popular Disney Junior shows.  
    If you’re planning to bring a stroller, make sure it fits within the stroller guidelines. If needed, Stroller Rentals are available for day use at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. The Stroller Rental location is outside the Disneyland Park Main Entrance next to the Kennel. Rentals are first-come, first-served. So, if you prefer to rent a stroller, be sure to arrive early. Also Both parks offer Baby Care Centers equipped with vending machines dispensing diapers, wipes, baby food and formula. Feel free to utilize these facilities to nurse, change, or feed your young child. 
    Enjoy your magical day exploring the Disneyland Resort with your Little One! Come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions!
