    Hi, we will be visiting Disneyland for the first time at the end of the month. We only have time for one day there and I was wondering if you could send me a map of the rides at the park so we can plan beforehand?

    Welcome Shannon!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I have to say that one day at the Disneyland Resort is still much better than no days, so I am really excited for your trip! With only one day I would definitely suggest purchasing a Park Hopper Ticket. This will give you the freedom to easily walk between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park throughout the day. You will then be able to experience the classic attractions of Disneyland Park and also the wonderfully themed areas of Disney California Adventure Park like Cars Land.

    I love your strategy of planning your trip ahead of time by looking at park maps. This is a really smart way to familiarize yourself with the Resort and make the most out of your day. You can find the current Guidemaps online for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. My favorite way to plan is also by downloading the official Disneyland mobile app. Not only can you view maps, but you can also use this app when you are in the parks to see attraction wait times and locations of Character greetings. My favorite feature of the Disneyland app is being able to purchase and utilize the new Disney MaxPass service. Once your park tickets are linked to the app and you enter the park, you can add this feature and start making Disney FASTPASS selections on your device. This will help you minimize your wait for attractions and maximize your day. It also includes unlimited downloads of PhotoPass pictures taken that day to help you capture your magical memories!

    I hope this helps, and have a Fantasmic day!
