    My wife and I live here in California and, well, have never been to Disneyland, so I wanted to know about a vacation package

    Welcome to planDisney, Kai. Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

    I’m so glad you’re planning a first trip to the Happiest Place on Earth with you wife! After being closed for more than a year due to the pandemic, Disneyland Resort theme parks will finally open up their gates on April 30, 2021 with limited capacity. Last year during the theme park closure, the three on-site Disney hotels were also forced to shut. However, I’m happy to report that Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will welcome Guests for stays staring April 29, 2021. 

    Save the date of April 15, 2021, Kai, because that is the day you’ll be able to begin to book your vacation package. Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is my favorite place to stay, and the close proximity and direct entry into Disney California Adventure Park are some great added benefits! When you book your vacation package, you’ll be able to choose the number of days you wish to visit the parks, and you can also choose the Park Hopper option. That enables you and your wife to visit both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park on the same day. There are so much to see, taste, and enjoy in both parks so I recommend you opt for two or more days for your first visit to soak in the Disney Magic! Once you've purchased your tickets, be sure to link them to your Disney account so you can make park reservations for entry into Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park.

    I also suggest downloading the latest version of Disneyland mobile app before you arrive to the Disneyland Resort. Many dining locations utilize mobile ordering and contactless payment. Also, if you’re interested, the very popular and immersive Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will have a virtual queue that is only accessible via the Disneyland mobile app.

    There is much more information about your first visit I’d love to share and cover but unable to do so due to space constraints here. But you’re more than welcome to write us again if you have more questions, Kai. Helping our Guests plan their Disneyland Resort vacation is our passion and we’re all EARS!

    Have a magical day,

Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
