    I am visiting Disneyland Anaheim in June this year with my family of 6 adults and two toddlers, one and two year olds, was wondering what sort of rides are there for the two kids? Also for vegetarians, are there food options? outside food allowed?

    Heigh-Ho, Mahalaxmi!

    Welcome to planDisney!Your question about your upcoming Disney trip with your little Mouseketeers is giving me all the warm fuzzies! I'm a Disneyland regular myself, always adventuring with my Tigger-rific toddler and now a little Roo in tow. Your question takes me back to some of our most magical moments. 

    So, let's talk rides! At Disneyland Park, the King Arthur Carrousel is a must for us. It's perfect for both your tots to ride side by side on their own horses. And let's not forget classics like "it's a small world," Pirates of the Caribbean, and Storybook Land Canal Boats. All of these rides let us enjoy the experience together. They're great for all ages and make for unforgettable family memories. Oh, and you can't miss Casey Jr. Circus Train – you might just end up with your own cage!

    Over at Disney California Adventure Park, my little merman can't get enough of The Little Mermaid—Ariel's Undersea Adventure. There are plenty more thrills, like Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! and Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, just to name a few. Here's a handy list of all the rides and attractions at the resort with no height requirement.

    Now, let's talk food! If you're into veggie options, my pal, Panelist Tiffanie S, is the queen of plant-based options at the resort! Here are her top suggestions for satisfying those theme park cravings with no one to tell you no, or where to go, or say you're only dreaming. 

    And you certainly can bring your own food, beverages, and snacks into the parks if you prefer! In fact, one of my favorite tips is to freeze a plastic water bottle and pack it in a soft-sided cooler bag to keep our snacks fresh. Plus, as the ice melts throughout the day, you've got chilled water or a sports drink to enjoy.

    Before I let you go, Mahalaxmi, make sure to check out the Baby Care Centers at both parks when you're here. They're a lifesaver for feeding, changing diapers, and catching a breather. The Disneyland Park Baby Care Center is next to First Aid at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., and the Disney California Adventure Park location is next to the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. You can check out planDisney's Instagram reel for a peek at what they offer!

    Overall, you and your little ones will have plenty of options to ride together as a family in both of the parks. I hope I've helped add some sparkle to your plans, Mahalaxmi! Just like Ursula says, "That's what I do! It's what I live for!" so if you have any more questions before your visit, just swim on back to ask me again for a quicker response!

    See ya real soon!
