    I will be visiting with my 4 year old and my 1 year old next week (along with my parents as well)... Which park is the most appropriate for my 4 year old in terms of rides?

    Dear Lindsay,
    I always recommend the Disneyland Park as an excellent option for a guest's first-time visit!
    I say this because Disneyland is the original Disney Theme Park, which opened to the public in 1955.
    There are numerous original attractions for all ages, including the many fun rides inside Fantasyland like Peter Pan's Flight, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, "it's a small world", Snow White's Scary Adventures, Pinocchio's Daring Journey, the King Arthur Carrousel and the ever so classic Mad Tea Party, among many others!
    If you walk over to New Orleans Square, your 4-year-old as well as your 1-year-old can enjoy Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion!
    I just named a few of my favorite attractions for small kids, however, there are many more available, including awesome rides in Tomorrowland and Mickey's Toontown.
    If you visit the Disneyland website and click on "Attractions" under the "Things to Do" tab, you'll be able to filter the rides by age. If you select the option for "all ages", you'll get a list of all the different rides available for you and your kids, a feature that will hopefully help you to plan your day accordingly.
    Also, consider purchasing MaxPass, which allows you to get FASTPASSES for some of the most popular Disneyland attractions, right from your mobile phone!
    I hope this helps!
    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
